Some Reactions From Wingnuts On GLAAD's Commentator Accountability Project


GLAAD last week launched their Commentator Accountability Project, an initiative highlighting network and cable news guests who regularly spout anti-gay rhetoric to their right wing armies.The list includes people like Family Research Council's Tony Perkins, NOM's Maggie Gallagher and "ex-gay" advocate Alan Chambers.

AFTER THE JUMP, a sample of some of the most recent responses from conservatives both on and off the roster, plus some video and audio.

Bryan Fischer:

This is like McCarthyism. This is like a blacklist. Trying to identify those that they think represent a danger to their interests, to their agenda, and then to try to silence them… They want to take away our ability to participate in the public debate over homosexual issues. And they are proving that I am right. What did the Nazis do? They silenced their opposition.

Gary Bauer:

I’m pleased to report that my name was included on a list of pro-family, Christian leaders… What is this list? It is a media “black list” drawn up by [GLAAD]. GLAAD is working hard to silence conservative, pro-family, Christian voices in the media.

My friends, the culture war is real. This is just the latest example of the radical left’s intolerance and its assault on free speech. That is why Fox is under attack and why advertisers on the Rush Limbaugh Show are being threatened. It is more evidence of its efforts to force faith and conservatism out of public arena and into the closet.

Proposition 8 and Newt Gingrich supporter Jim Garlow: "There's 36 of us total. [GLAAD] wants to destroy these people and keep them off their air and keep them from interviews… We want to keep them from not being allowed to speak anymore."

Linda Harvey (not on the list, but hateful nonetheless):

The carefully cultivated Hate brand is a big seller among marginally informed youth who quickly process whom to heed and whom to dismiss. This volunteer sales force moves throughout the nation with whistleblowing at speeches, interruption of church services, heckling and predictable “H8″ protest signs.


Recognize this? Hate branding, focusing on Jews, succeeded in branding them as the 'enemy' in public opinion in Nazi Germany. It’s the method used today by Islamic radicals who spread ludicrous fables about Jews in many mosques.

  1. Keep comparing the queers to the Nazis, far-righters! It just rings hollow and desperate. You're doing a fabulous job of pushing the fence sitters to the side of equality!

  2. Conservatives playing the victim... again. Because, you know, it's wealthy white 'christianists' that get beaten in the street for being themselves.

  3. Glad to see GLAAD making themselves useful and not just going after celebs for tweeting the word "Tranny".

  4. this is fantastic and much needed! other minority groups have chapters within organizations that keep track of commentators and their false/hateful speech. great move on the part of GLAAD on this one.

  5. it really is a stunning display of willful ignorance.

    right. they attack us and cry "VICTIM!" when they get called out on it.

    these people are leaving a shameful legacy for their grandchildren.

    anti-Integrationists could at least "hide" their family history due to a lack of resources for recording it all.

    we're in the digital age. these anti-gay bigots will be remembered solely for being anti-gay bigots.

    decades from now some kid can, and will, pull up a google search and will be able to watch videos and read manuscripts rife with anti-gay (and racist) bigotry...
    it's gonna be like your entire school knowing, with evidence, that your family owned slaves.

  6. To remind everyone just who the fascists are, here is a list of the 14 Traits of fascism from Dr. Lawrence Britt:

  8. "What did the Nazis do? They silenced their opposition."

    Yeah, by killing them. GLAAD isn't silencing Bryan or anyone else, just naming and shaming.

  9. A while back, Al Gore admonished Meredith Vierra (Today Show) for, in the name of balance and fairness, bringing on the air to debate Gore on the issue of global warming, a Bush administration "scientist" whose work had been throughly discredited among the global scientific community. GLAAD is demanding the same accountability in the debate about gay rights and marriage equality. If anyone should be terrified, Brian Fischer, it is you and your ilk.

  10. They can all keep playing the victim card but the countdown ticker is on. Actually the countdown ticker is on in more ways than one. First, we will prevail and have our Rights, second they'll soon be dust. Good riddance to bad rubbish! I hope they all choke to death on the holy Eucharist this Sunday!

  11. I love that they've worked themselves into froth over being quoted verbatim. Like cockroaches, they can't stand the light.

  12. GLADD is getting a check from me.

  13. I wouldn't expect them to take this lying down. TV appearances are their main source of fame and income.

  14. Love the 9-part photo. I'd call it "The Hate-y Bunch".

  15. Not trying to silence you. Really.

    Just trying to make everyone aware of the divisive intolerant hate-speech you specialize in.

    If they choose to disassociate with you after hearing what you really stand for... that's your fault.

    Posted by: Jexer | Mar 22, 2012 3:43:58 PM

  16. @ Johnson: "The Hate-y Bunch" Hahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!

  17. Such hurt feelings! You're not being attacked if someone calls BS on your hateful pronouncements. Time to put on your big boy- and girl panties, Conservatives.

  18. I love the way their new M.O. is to play the victim and to call us "intolerant". And their ignorant followers simply believe the brain washing. Why do some human beings choose to remain ignorant?

    Posted by: Jim | Mar 22, 2012 4:30:04 PM

  19. These people are all delusional anti-gay bigots who seek either to force us back into the closet or destroy us. There is no other way to look at it.

    The anti-gay bigots believe that LGBT people are the evil ones but they are the Nazis.

  20. This GLAAD camapaign is brilliant. To suggest that GLAAD is shutting them up like Nazis is ridiculous. On the contrary, at GLAAD's website, you click on the person in question's photo, and there is a summary of statements they have made. Within those paragraphs, you can click a highlighted statement and watch the video of the person making the speech that contained the statement.
    For far too long, the anti-gay bigots have been invited to come into the media and say pretty much anything no matter howfalse without being challenged.

    I remember watching Larry King interviewing Jerry Falwell years ago, and when he was asked why he would call Ellen "Ellen Degenerate," he said he had never said such a thing. I remembered that statement well and it didn't take me 20 seconds to find the video proof (I think it was from The Old Time Gospel Hour). So why couldn't CNN have dug that video out to lead into the next commercial break?
    I've always felt like I do more homework on my cheap laptop while I'm watching these shows than the supposedly professional researchers on any of the typical news networks. It's generally easy to find proof of the lies before the interview is over.
    GLAAD's new initiative should make it very easy for the networks to do some of the homework that the journalists should have been doing already.

  21. Bravo, GLAAD.

  22. so why don't they police their own, because there are plenty of pedophiles in them "christian" groups. oops i forgot they do it in the name of "god"

  23. Citing examples is good.

    Trying to prevent some one from being on television or radio because they have a different view from yours is bad.

    It is a distinction that all should keep in mind.

  24. @Diogenes... "different view"? A bit of false equivalency. Speech that incites hatred of a group of people isn't just a different view. Persuading a network not to pander to hate speech should be a good thing. It's a distinction you should keep in mind.
