Bigot Benham Twins Are Martyrs Like 'Braveheart's' William Wallace: VIDEO

Jason and David Benham

David and Jason Benham were all set to start their reality TV career with a house-flipping show on HGTV until word got around that the pair were anti-gay, anti-abortion, anti-muslim extremists. Sensing that perhaps the presence of the two on their station would be detrimental to their reputation, HGTV canned the project. Little did they realize that they were creating martyrs on a level no less than Braveheart's William Wallace who are engaged in their very own D-Day. At least, that's how the Benhams view it.

Said Jason Benham at the Road to Majority conference:

We know what happened at D-Day. We know what happened on Omaha and Utah beach. There’s something about those men that our dad taught us when we were kids, and he said, ‘Boys, don’t you ever run from bullets. You run toward the bullets.' There are cultural bullets flying, all over today, especially religious liberty, and what’s happening right now is many spiritual leaders, elected leaders, they are running from bullets. But there’s a remnant of people that are ready to stand and say ‘I’m not running from these bullets any more. I’m going to take this beach.’ 

Just like in the movie Braveheart, when all the Scottish Army was standing there, and they all had their gear on, and they were lined up and they were unified, and they were ready to fight but not a single one of them wanted to fight. And then as William Wallace and a few men rode in on horses with blue face paint on. They were ready to pick a fight, and what I see before me right now are a bunch of people with some blue face paint on – so let’s go get it.

Rather galling that someone who would compare gay marriage to Nazi Germany would dare to presume he has any clue whatsoever what D-Day was like. Also, contrary to Braveheart's portrayal of William Wallace as a scrappy peasant underdog fighting against an oppressive regime, he was actually a knight from nobility who fought against a king who had been invited by the Scottish nobility to help arbitrate an impending civil war amongst the yeah, perhaps that comparison to a wealthy person screwing around in politics is somewhat accurate.

  1. I've listened to the twin brothers before and they take their religion TOO seriously.

  2. Real men do not believe in fake men.

  3. Yeah, yeah the Benham boys are idiots. But, not for nothing here, a lot of your readers are anti-abortion, and (I'll go out on limb) most of us are anti-muslim extremists. Please be careful how you toss that B-word around. It pays to be smarter than your adversaries...

  4. If their father really taught them to always run toward the bullets, he must really hate them.

  5. Has this pair of Alice in Wonderland Central Casting dummies ever been to Omaha Beach or Utah Beach ?
    Have they ever seen the thousands of graves they so manipulate and exploit for some twisted comparison ?
    As for Braveheart the Movie....ha ha ha, Boys, William Wallace was a real person, and as pointed out in the post above, a gentleman of a noble house,......these two have seen the movie and that is the extent of their knowledge.....a roaring Mel Gibson.....with a catchphrase.
    The history of Scotland is both complex and detailed and long.

    It really is amazing that this kind of stupidity, of these two, gets the light of day.
    Are these two the new heroes of Normandy or the new William Wallaces ?
    The forced comparison is risible.
    So to use a phrase with which they might identify:
    "You know nothing, Jon Snow."

  7. Right, because the right way to take a beach is to get shot as soon as you can by running TOWARDS the bullets.

    With military strategists like that, no wonder the Americans are losing the Iraqi war.

  8. News Item: There were gay soldiers on Utah and Omaha Beach.

  9. Every time I read what these twins have to say, I think to myself "This is incitement to violence." Are they really looking for a gun-fight?

  12. Give me a break. I'm not sure which one is which technically but I can tell you exactly which one is David, the anti-gay one, because he's the gay one.

    It's a safe bet that's David on the left.

  13. @Hun : if "taking a beach", running towards the bullets probably makes sense because its most likely the only way of getting to something you can hide behind. If you just stand there, you'll be shot for sure, and if you try to swim out, you'll either drown or have to come back to shore eventually, so you'll be a prime target even longer, and won't be able to run as fast due to being tired and waterlogged.

    Until you get inland a bit, beaches tend to be kind of flat with nothing to hide behind.

  14. They are the William Wallaces of verbal flatulence.

  17. When you shove your religious ignorant hateful ideology on others, expect a backlash. Welcome to the real world thumpers.

    Posted by: herano | Jul 3, 2014 10:54:13 PM

  18. I think they are both ugly as hell and that they are so ignorant and bigoted makes them even more vile.

    Posted by: Ned | Jul 3, 2014 10:56:10 PM

  19. I hate to say it but they both are so damn hot.

  20. Wait, didn't they claim to love everyone and complain about being misrepresented as haters? Oh, guess that was just when they were trying to salvage their relationship with HGTV and their viewers. Now that that ship has sailed they are back to shill the faithful and make a buck with their bigotry.

  21. Gombold: What the F are you talking about??? Maybe that's just you.
    And to the rest who are posting about their looks, you really need to get a grip and leave the shallow pool.

  22. Dear brothers, any actual grownup knows perfectly well that no one ever arrived on earth through a virgin birth and somehow managed to atone for the sins of all mankind. It doesn't make any sense, it's completely unecessary, and it can't be done. Doesn't mean there isn't some kind of a primal conciousness behind All That Is (I think there is) but it has almost nothing to do with the world's conventional religions. Just grow up boys, you're still on pablum.

  23. "and what I see before me right now are a bunch of people with some blue face paint on – so let’s go get it."

    That's called makeup sweetie!

  25. They seem to think they deserve a TV show and the success that would entail. Where did they get such a sense of entitlement? From being rich pretty boys of the good breeding brought by an arranged marriage? Can anyone break through the attitude and whisper in their ear that life doesn't grant you such privileges even though you might have been born on third base.
