Extremist anti-LGBTQ activist Theodore Shoebat, who was featured in a radically anti-gay documentary made by Janet Porter called “Light Wins” along with various Religious Right activists and Republican elected officials back in 2015, posted a new video on his website last week insisting that it should not be considered a hate crime to kill “fags.”
While ranting about Tucker Carlson’s interview with Caitlyn Jenner last week and demanding that Jenner be arrested and executed for promoting “perversion,” Shoebat declared that murdering gays should not qualify as a hate crime.
“Fags kill each other all the time,” he said, “and the reason why they kill each other all the time is because they’re demon-possessed people and Satan wants them to kill each other because Satan hates humanity.”
“If someone kills a homosexual because they’re a homosexual, that should not be considered a hate crime,” he continued, “because right when you start considering that a hate crime, then you might as well just say, ‘Well, if someone kills somebody because they’re a pedophile, that should also be a hate crime.'”
Shoebat insisted that he is not advocating that people go out and kill “sodomites,” but rather merely arguing that the killing of “perverts” should not be a hate crime “because if killing the sodomite is a hate crime, then all of sudden, killing a pedophile is going to be a hate crime, all of a sudden killing a zoophiliac is going to be a hate crime.”
“It’s bullshit,” he stated. “This is all a way that the sodomites are using to normalize homosexuality.”
