On Friday, Alan Colmes interviewed David and Jason Benham about the on-going controversy over the cancellation of their HGTV program due to their anti-gay, anti-choice, and anti-Islam activism. For the last two weeks, the Benham brothers have been complaining that they were the victims of a "smear campaign" build on "complete lies" and when Colmes finally asked David to explain just how they had been lied about, David asserted that "Right Wing Watch published the fact that we said 'God hates Muslims,' that is a complete and total lie."

Immediately, of course, the Religious Right drummed up the “persecution” narrative. Anti-gay commentators including Laura Ingraham, David Limbaugh, Erick Erickson, Bryan Fischer, Ralph Reed, Todd Starnes, Peter LaBarbera and Janet Mefferd — along with groups including the Family Research Council...

UPDATE: HGTV has "decided not to move forward" with the show. UPDATE II: Additional remarks of Benham attacking homosexuality as "destructive" and "demonic" have also surfaced. Last month, the HGTV network announced that it will launch a new reality TV show, “Flip it Forward,” starring David and Jason Benham. The twin brothers will “leverage their good-natured sibling rivalry to help families find a fixer-upper and transform it into the dream home they never thought they could afford.” What the announcement didn't mention is that at...

When James Holmes opened fired in a Colorado movie theater in July, killing 12 people and injuring 58 others, Operation Save America quickly issued a press release calling Holmes "an Occupy Wall Street guy" who is "the spawn of the ideology of the Democratic Party."
