Wing Nuts Respond to Confederate Flag Debate With Request to Remove Gay Pride Flags

Via Right Wing Watch:

On his radio program today, Bryan Fischer once again contributed some of his typically well-reasoned and insightful thoughts on the controversy over the Confederate flag by demanding that if this flag is going to be removed, so too should the rainbow flag, which is the symbol of “the Gay Reich.”

“If we are going to remove symbols of oppression from our culture,” Fischer said, “if we come to the point where we say any flag that represents bigotry, any flag that represents hatred, any flag that represents slavery or oppression needs to be removed, then I want to suggest to you that the next flag to go ought to be the rainbow flag of the Gay Reich.”

“The rainbow flag represents the gay lobby, it represents Big Gay, it represents what I'm calling for the first time today, I'm introducing a new term: the Gay Reich,” he continued. “They've got a flag just like the Nazis had their flag.”

“That flag is a symbol of slavery and oppression and bigotry and prejudice and bias,” Fischer said. “So if we're going to go after symbols of oppression, we ought to make the rainbow flag the next target for removal in our culture.”

Other anti-gay activists are echoing this sentiment.

As we prepare for SCOTUS' ruling on same-sex marriage (which could come as early as tomorrow), it is entertaining to watch the right fall apart.

 

Here’s Taye Diggs as ‘Hedwig’

Via NewNowNext:

Broadway vet Diggs will assume the role of Hedwig on July 22 for a 12-week run, succeeding current star, Darren Criss, who plays his final performance on July 19.

“Hedwig is the role of a lifetime,” Diggs told PEOPLE. “I’m looking forward to being challenged performance-wise on many levels, as well as being humbled by the musical’s social implications. I also like wearing nail polish.”
