Today, David Barton and Rick Green dedicated their “Wallbuilders Live” radio program to discussing the recent situation in Indiana where a bakery owner refused to make cupcakes for customer who wanted to celebrate “National Coming Out Day” with Micah Clark of the American Family Association of Indiana.
Barton began by framing the discussion by asserting that gays are “hypersensitive” and pointed to his recent statement that the government ought to be regulating gay sex as evidence, claiming that he received death threats because of it. Finally, Barton says that gays have a “kick me mentality” and “behave in such a way that people want to kick you”:
Barton: If there’s a group in America that is hypersensitive, it is homosexuals. I mean, they got a short fuse on everything. You’re a homophobe, you’re a whatever and anything you say or do, they interpret as coming after them.
And so they really have a short fuse and a great example is, remember back a few weeks ago we had Pastor Hutcherson on and remember that article he did in Townhall and WorldNetDaily – “Transexual, Transgender, and Transfast” – and he’s talking about how the government thinks it should regulate that bad for our health, well it needs to read its own website and look what it says about homosexuality and how bad that is for health and yet they encourage that, they don’t regulate it.
Well I now found out that we have a number of people who listen to “Wallbuilders Live” who I didn’t know about: Alan Colmes and Keith Olbermann and MSNBC and all these folks. Because when we said that, they came after me in unbelievable ways.
MSNBC called and they had me posted on the front page and they were doing programs on what I said – I’m repeating Hutcherson, you know, I’m just reading an article. But it was so funny. They wanted me to come on NBC and appear on … but I didn’t want to talk to their twelve viewers so I left that.
You just make a comment like that, you just repeat an article that Pastor Hutcherson did and, man, they have come after me and the death threats, you know I got all of these death threats.
These guys are wacky. They are absolutely wacky and it’s like they look for ways to get rejected so they can so “you did that because I’m homosexual.” No, I did that because you’re a jerk.
And literally, if you get this kick me mentality, it’s like you wear a sign that says “kick me” and you behave in such a way that people want to kick you.
Of course, if anyone dares to criticize Barton these remakrs, they are just being hypersensitive.
