Perkins With Yet Another Nazi Claim

Boy, the Christian right is really focused on this incredibly moronic claim that gay rights supporters are just like the Nazis and that Christians will soon be rounded up and taken to concentration camps (run by FEMA, of course). Tony Perkins is the latest to roll out this dystopic delusion.

Perkins reacted to the discrimination case by offering a comparison to the Holocaust: “I’m beginning to think, are re-education camps next? When are they going to start rolling out the boxcars to start hauling off Christians?”

“I guarantee that we are going to continue to see the witch hunt,” Martin said.

Witch hunts! Nazis! Gulags! When is this going to happen? Never, you idiot. But you’re going to keep on selling the idea to your credulous followers so they’ll keep sending you money, I’m sure.

    Who would know better about witch hunts than a Christian? But I’m surprised he didn’t mention burning faggots.

    I don’t know about ‘re-education’. Don’t you have to be educated at least once for that?

    Does he even know the meaning of “witch hunt”? It means a paranoid search for supposed hidden enemies, often non-existent, even to the point where innocents are accused and rounded up.

    If there is one thing that is clear about conservative evangelical Christians, they definitely do exist and they don’t try to hide.

    Tony Perkins: I wasn’t expecting some sort of Spanish Inquisition!

    As if Christians wouldn’t want to round up every group of people they despise and send them off to some camp. Grr. What is with all of these ridiculous Nazi analogies?

    . . . that Christians will soon be rounded up and taken to concentration camps . . .

    “. . . When are they going to start rolling out the boxcars to start hauling off Christians?”

    I’m turning 72 next month. I remember well the year I was 11, how I was really worried about this. They told us the camps were inevitable, “any day now”. We were told we wouldn’t be able to read our Bibles in the camps or prisons, so we’d better start memorizing the key verses immediately, to be prepared.

    They probably were asking my parents for money, too.

    … Christians will soon be rounded up and taken to concentration camps (run by FEMA, of course).

    Not necessarily a bad thing, hmmm? No really, if they actually believed this shit, maybe they’d just STFU. Keep your nonsense to yourself or we will round your stupid asses up.

  • dingojack

    Nope, sorry Tony, no boxcars necessary. Your ideas are losing ground all by themselves.

    This is mainly thanks to your daily histrionic claims that ‘THE SKY IS FALLING’ and that ‘[fill in the group-to-hate du-jour in here] are the WORSTEST people EVAR!!!’

    Your dire predictions never come to pass; and people’s dealings with the groups you hate show that your claims are nothing more than abject bigotry — and slowly, slowly even your most rusted on followers drift away, as your creditability fast approaches zero.

    The Fundie Armageddon, Tony, won’t be ‘bang, but a whimper’.

    Re-education camps? You mean like conversion therapy for gays?

    Witch hunts? You mean like outing homosexuals against their will for malicious purposes?

    Boxcars to haul people off? You mean like the Nazis literally did to gay people?

    I’ve heard that a straight man’s homophobia is the fear that another man will treat him like he treats women.

    A Christian fundamentalist’s homophobia is the fear that gays and gay rights supporters will treat him like people of his sort have treated gay people.

    Stop projecting, Tony. The people you want to oppress are not going to oppress you just because they’re granted equality, you noxious turd of a human being.

    Doubting Thomas,

    No. Not even in jest. As annoying and dangerous as these loons are, I don’t want to live in a country where anyone gets rounded up into boxcars.

    “I guarantee that we are going to continue to see the witch hunt,” [Nicolle] Martin said.

    If she can see it now without there actually being a witch hunt, I’m sue she will continue to see it. Reality isn’t going to slow her down.

  • theguy

    It’s ironic that Mr. Buys-Mailing-Lists-From-White-Supremacists Perkins accuses others of causing another Holocaust. Considering how Mr. Shitkins praised Uganda, if he had his way he’d round up and kill gay people.

  • cptdoom

    I am sure Tony is equally appalled that the same laws that protect LGBT people from discrimination also force gay and lesbian people to treat him as if he were worthy of compassion and basic decency, right? Or is Tony fine with forcing gays and lesbians to violate their moral beliefs and treat him better than dog sh*t.

    Perkins is starting to sound more and more like Bryan Fischer or Glenn Beck.

    Desperation ain’t pretty.
