(EDGE) Brian Fischer, the radio mouthpiece for the anti-LGBTQ hate group American Family Association, is calling for a ban on the rainbow flag in public spaces.
He is equating hate reactions to the symbol of LGBTQ pride with those who feel the Confederate flag represents racism.
As reported by Right Wing Watch, Fischer's comments came during his Focal Point radio program Friday in reaction to reports that some school districts in North Carolina banned representation of the Confederate flag as part of their dress codes.
"If we are going to ban the Confederate flag because it is divisive, how about we ban the LGBT flag at school?" he said. "If we are going to ban the Confederate flag at school because it creates division, because it arouses division, because it is offensive to people, because it so violates their most deeply held values about human sexuality, I propose that everywhere - everywhere - where the Confederate flag is banned, that we propose that along with it, at the same time, that the LGBT rainbow flag be banned at exactly the same time for exactly the same reasons."
Fischer's comments are the latest race-pivot from the Tupelo, Mississippi-based hate monger. RWW reported that following the violence in at the White Supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia this month he claimed on his radio show that the clash that left one dead and dozens injured was a showdown between leftist factions.
"This is like the Sunnis and the Shias," Fischer said. "They're both wearing the same color uniform - the uniform of socialism and socialist ideals - and they're completely at war with each other."
