LaBarbera: Anti-Gay Christians Just Like Jews in Nazi Germany

The deranged Peter LaBarbera does a full Godwin with a half-twist in an interview with Janet Mefferd, repeatedly comparing anti-gay Christians to Jews and gay rights advocates as Nazis. This is the place where a banner should drop down announcing that this is the one millionth time this moronic comparison has been made.

While discussing the Human Rights Campaign’s “Export of Hate” report and what he claims are Right Wing Watch’s misrepresentations of his remarks, LaBarbera said of gay rights supporters: “They’re doing to us what the Nazis did to the Jews.”

“We have to trust in God to protect us,” LaBarbera said, suggesting that criticism of his anti-gay activism is fanning the flames of violence.

“This demonization is just — it’s what’s been done to minorities to the past and like I said, it’s what the Nazis did to the Jews,” LaBarbera added. “We’re losing our freedoms.”

Remind me again, which side is it that actually advocates locking people up or putting them into forced conversion therapy? Oh yeah, it’s Peter LaBarbera and his fellow bigots. Psychological projection for the win!

    No, not exactly what the Nazis did to the Jews. For instance, I’m pretty sure that there are no plans to use cattle cars to transport the anti-gay Christians to FEMA campsl

    Right Wing Watch’s “misrepresentation” of Petey’s remarks involves accurately quoting him and his fellow travelers at length. How insidious.

    Interesting: when they are trying to use a metaphor to show that they are victims, (setting aside the fact that they are not) they are acting incredibly insulting to the ACTUAL victims.

    Do they not understand that the people they are comparing themselves to were tortured and killed to try to eliminate their race, and that comparing that to being criticized in public isn’t quite the same level of suffering?
