Scott Lively and Peter LaBarbera held a press conference on Friday to announce their all-new anti-gay group, not to be confused with their already existing anti-gay groups, and it was briefly interrupted by an activist shouting “stop killing us.” Here’s Lively’s staggeringly hypocritical response:
As the video begins, one of the speakers for Defend Family International, which was holding what it called a “Pro-Russian, Pro-Family” press conference, is interrupted by an activist speaking in Russian. Another activist repeats what is held on a pink sign in the background, “Stop killing us.”
“Stop killing speech,” Dr. Lively replies. “This is not your forum.”…
When the activist insists on speaking, Dr. Lively says, “this is what I would like to bring to the attention of everyone in this room — this is what we call ‘homo-fascism.’”
“‘Homo-fascism,’” he continues, “is a hard-left, totalitarian mindset that attempts to suppress all perspectives on the homosexual issue except those that favor their positions.”
Said by a man advocating in favor of a law that puts people in jail merely for advocating equality, a law that has seen people arrested for doing nothing more than carrying a rainbow flag. A law that lively calls one of his proudest achievements and that he wants to replicate all over the world. Fascism indeed.
