Barber: Nazis, Nazis, Nazis! Gay People Are Nazis!

Hey look, yet another Christian right bigot claiming that gay rights activists are Nazis, and hardly for the first time. Matt Barber seems to be challenging Glenn Beck’s title as the leading Godwinian on the right wing. I’m starting to wonder if there’s some rich right-winger that pays money for every Nazi comparison they make.

After Staver asserted that gay rights activists are out to destroy religious freedom, Barber responded by warning that attacks on the Indiana law were laying the groundwork for persecution of Christians in America.

“You wonder how, in Nazi Germany, the propagandists were able to get an entire nation of people on board with persecuting to Jews the level that they’re doing,” Barber said. “We see it being repeated here with an entire nation of people, these leftists media propagandists, getting them on board for a soft persecution, at least at this point and time, of Christians here in the U.S.”

Says the person advocating discrimination against gay people — you know, like the Nazis actually did.

    Classic Rove/Luntz spin: preemptively accuse your opponents of what you’re actually doing so that any criticism directed at you becomes a rhetorically limp “well, you do it worse!”

    They are just freaking out because it’s the only “N” word they are allowed to say.

    You know, i wonder what the world today would have looked like had the Nazis’ only activity in the territories they conquered was to make bakers bake cakes.

    WERE JUST ONE STEP AWAY FROM THE OBAMAFUHRER LOADING CHRISTIAN BAKERS AND FLORISTS ON CATTLECARS!!!

    I know it is wrong … but a small part of me wants to fulfill their dream.

    Maybe we could round them all up, put them in boxcars and transport them to … Disneyland for a free 2 week vacation!

    It would do them so much good!

    Neglecting the fact that the Jews were a small minority in Germany while Christians are the overwhelming majority in the USA.

    Don’t worry, Modus, those bakers and florists will be perfectly free to refuse to accessorize those cattle-cars in any way.

    “You wonder how, in Nazi Germany, the propagandists were able to get an entire nation of people on board with persecuting to Jews the level that they’re doing,”

    Does he realize the the Jews were already hated in Germany, and most of Europe? It wasn’t like the Nazis were sitting around one day and asked themselves, “Who can we get to have everyone hate?”

    “I know, the Jews!”

    “But everyone love the Jews.”

    “Not once we get done with them.”

    Christians had a LONG history of shitting on the Jews before Hitler came along.

    Seems like this is one of those days when science-fiction connections come into my mind. There’s an episode of ST:TOS in which Enterprise is taken over by a group of Klingons led by Kang. Spurred on by one of those aliens who live on others’ hatred, they fight the crew up and down the corridors until Kirk convinces them the alien is real. IIRC, Kang says at that point, “We need no help to hate humans — but no one fights in a burning house.”

    If there were in America such a desire to persecute Christians as Barber claims, laws would make little difference; Christians would be persecuted. Rather, the constant emphasis on laws from Barber and his ilk results from the fact that the laws restrain persecution — by them, not of them.
