Hours aftertoday’s tragic shooting inAurora, Colorado, leaders of hate groups began to use the massacre, which left twelve dead — including a six-year old girl — and 50 injured, to demonize and attack gay people.
Bryan Fischer, the public face of the certified anti-gay hate group, American Family Association, today via Twitter said, “Chick-fil-A provides free meals to first responders in CO. Let’s see Big Gay demonize that.” The Chick-Fil-Acomment is a reference to attacks Chick-Fil-A president and COO Dan Cathy has made on LGBT people and same-sex marriage.
Fischer, whose own attacks on gays have included the false claim that gays “are Nazis,” linked in his tweet to a Breitbart.com article noting the local Aurora, Colorado Chick-Fil-A restaurant near the movie theater had opened its doors and served tired police and emergency workers. That Breitbart article used the tweets of anonymous Twitter users to sarcastically claim that it is “heartwarming to see that people can put aside political differences in a time of tragedy.”
The right wing: “It was the atheists and the Gay people”!
Can someone please tape these peoples mouths shut; just for a little while?
