Richard Land Links Gay Rights To Nazi Germany
After lecturing liberals on why they are wrong to fault the United States for slavery, former Southern Baptist Convention official Richard Land drew a connection between the rise of gay rights and Nazi Germany.
While guest-hosting yesterday’s edition of “Washington Watch,” Land spoke with Fox News correspondent Todd Starnes about President Obama’s recent executive order to protect employees of federal government contractors from discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.
He told Starnes that conservatives need to stand up to “the gay thought police” or face Nazi-style persecution, mentioning Martin Niemöller’s anti-Nazi poem “First they came….”
Earlier in the show, Starnes said that Obama was “mocking and condescending” towards religion by saying “amen” while signing the executive order, because apparently opposing discrimination is incompatible with religious values.
“It was really a mocking, in-your-face sort of a move,” Starnes said.
Land, for his part, warned of “liberal McCarthyism” since now “the question is, ‘Are you now, or have you ever been opposed to homosexual and lesbian or gay, bisexual, transgender behavior?’”
But things were just getting started on “Washington Watch,” as Land later spoke with a caller who said she couldn’t understand “how seemingly intelligent people could have voted a president in by the name of Barack Obama so soon after 9/11, it doesn’t make sense to me.”
Rather than address her comments, Land went on a tangent about how Obama has an anti-American worldview and is to blame for everything from the drug war to Boko Haram’s kidnapping of girls in Nigeria.
