Bryan Fischer Calls For the Firing Of 'Dangerous' Gay Conservative Guy Benson: VIDEO

Bryan Fischer (below right) of anti-gay listed hate group American Family Association has demanded that gay radio host and Fox News contributor Guy Benson be fired from his position as Townhall.com political editor, reports Right Wing Watch.

Bryan Fischer_SMBenson recently came out in what he calls a "footnote" in his new book End of Discussion: How the Left’s Outrage Industry Shuts Down Debate, Manipulates Voters, and Makes America Less Free (and Fun).

Writing for The Stand in a piece titled "‘Gay Conservative’ Is An Oxymoron", Fischer argues:

“Benson is young, smart, and articulate and often appears on Fox News as a pundit on all manner of political issues. This makes him particularly dangerous to the conservative cause.

“Now I don’t know Mr. Benson, and he certainly seems like a particularly nice and friendly individual. But this is not about his personality. It’s about his politics.

“Townhall...is owned by Salem Media Group, which describes its mission as ‘targeting audiences interested in Christian and family-themed content and conservative values.’ To my knowledge, Salem has yet to explain how paying an openly homosexual activist to be the political editor of its main public policy publication is consistent with this mission.

“If Salem leadership is to be at all true to its own mission statement, Benson must be replaced. His values on homosexuality are not Christian, family-themed, or conservative.”

Megyn Kelly Interviews Newly-Out FOX News Homo-Con Guy Benson: VIDEO

Benson

Yesterday, Guy Benson, a conservative talk radio host, contributor for Fox News, and political editor for Townhall.com, came out in what he calls a "footnote" in his new book End of Discussion: How the Left’s Outrage Industry Shuts Down Debate, Manipulates Voters, and Makes America Less Free (and Fun). Benson (30) was also interviewed by BuzzFeed, telling them, “Gay rights is not something that dominates my attentions — or my passions — and that may seem incongruous, that may seem counterintuitive to a lot of people."

Last night, Benson sat down with Fox's Megyn Kelly for a one-on-one about Benson's coming out. Kelly began by letting Benson know, "You're in a safe place here."  Benson then commented to Kelly,

 "I just want to acknowledge, quickly, that I recognize that I am so fortunate to live in a country and an era where we can be having this exact kind conversation on national television. And I recognize that a lot of that is due to the fact that I'm standing of the shoulders of people who've worked very hard for a very long time, who probably don't share my political persuasion. So I just want to give them some credit in this. But I think when that crosses some threshold into punishing and purging dissenters and trying to exact punishments on people for not agreeing, that is not what we should be about in this country. I think we should be better than that in this country."

What exact "punishments" the gay left are looking to enact on him and other so-called "gay conservatives" for "dissenting" is not made clear. 

As Joe.My.God notes, however, Benson's particular form of "dissent" with the LGBT left is perhaps of particular interest to the LGBT community because the website he is political editor of, Townhall.com, is notoriously anti-gay. So the backlash he has experienced thus far may have more to do with his seeming lack of concern for gay rights (as implied in the BuzzFeed interview) and/or his tacit agreement with the anti-gay viewpoints spewed on the site of which he is an editor than with whether he labels himself a conservative or a liberal. Thus, it is the mere payment of lip service to the civil rights legends who fought for his rights while having no concern for them himself that seems, to use Megyn Kelly's word, anathema to being a gay man in 2015.

Fox News Contributor Worries Trans Awareness in Schools Will Turn Kids Into Cocker Spaniels - VIDEO

Tammybruce

Fox News is in a tizzy because of “indoctrination” in Maine where “kids as young as five are getting lessons about transgender issues.”

JazzA panel voiced concern because Horace Mitchell Primary School students were read the book I Am Jazz, the story of a transgender child Jazz Jennings who has become a spokesperson for transkids.

Psychologist Dr Susan Lipkin pointed out that the kids in question may be too young to understand these issues because “there are many men who are ballerinas who are not gay and are not transgender and there are many girls who are great athletes and neither are they.”

Contributor Tammy Bruce added the issue is troubling because kids fantasize about being Superman and sometimes imagine they are a cocker spaniel or a cat.

Is Apple CEO Tim Cook A 'Hypocrite' for Calling Out 'Religious Freedom' Bills But Not Anti-gay Countries? - VIDEO

Cook

Many on the right certainly think so.  

Incensed by Indiana Gov. Mike Pence bowing under corporate pressure from Cook and other business leaders by signing a "fix" to his state's discriminatory "religious freedom" law, a number of right-wingers pounced on what they saw as an example of left-wing hypocrisy. 

In a CitizenLink video, Focus on the Family's Stuart Shepard called out Cook for recently boasting about Apple's "fantastic new home in China" but this week slamming "religious freedom" bills as "dangerous" in a WaPo op-ed

Said Shepard:

"Mr. Cook, if China is 'fantastic' could you at least bring Indiana up to 'okay'?"

FiorinaFormer Hewlett-Packard CEO and likely GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina, told The Wall Street Journal that there was "nothing objectionable" with Indiana's original "religious freedom" law and that Cook and other CEOs had engaged in "a level of hypocrisy here that really is unfortunate."

“When Tim Cook is upset about all the places that he does business because of the way they treat gays and women, he needs to withdraw from 90% of the markets that he’s in, including China and Saudi Arabia,” Fiorina said Thursday. “But I don’t hear him being upset about that.”

Bernard McGuirk, an executive producer of Don Imus' radio show and frequent O'Reilly Factor guest, took things a step further by branding Cook a "bigot hypocrite" on Fox Business Network this week: 

“You have this hypocrite, this bigot hypocrite, Tim Cook, who is running his mouth about the whole thing. He sells products to Iran. He sells products to Saudi Arabia where they execute people if they’re gay...he won’t allow these religious people to exercise their freedom...he doesn't allow this Orthodox Jewish guy to refuse service that's the whole point of the law is to allow him to exempt himself from certain situations."

Calmer heads, such as The Washington Post's opinion writer Jonathan Capehart, dispute the validity of these criticisms and claim Cook is merely navigating the waters of today's corporate landscape.

Mike Pence Cites Selma Anniversary Participation on 'FOX & Friends': 'I Abhor Discrimination' — VIDEO

Selma_pence

Indiana Governor Mike Pence appeared on FOX & Friends this morning again drawing false comparisons between Indiana's Religious Freedom Restoration Act and legislation that Bill Clinton and Barack Obama signed years ago.

Pence was also asked by Steve Doocy about accusations that the law is also racist.

Pence's response was to invoke Selma:

"Five years ago my wife and my family walked the Edmund Pettus Bridge with John Lewis when I co-chaired the pilgrimage to mark the 45th anniversary of Bloody Sunday. I abhor discrimination. If I was in a restaurant and saw a business owner deny services to someone because they were gay, I wouldn’t eat there anymore. Frankly, that’s how most Hoosiers are.”

He adds, "there was never any intention in this law to create a license to discriminate.”

If the bill is not about discrimination, why was Pence flanked by anti-gay activists who have worked for years to demonize gays and lesbians when he signed it?

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

Pence also published an op-ed today in the Wall Street Journal repeating his talking points, "I abhor discrimination."

"I believe in the Golden Rule that you should ‘do unto others as you would have them do unto you.’ If I saw a restaurant owner refuse to serve a gay couple, I wouldn’t eat there anymore...As governor of Indiana, if I were presented a bill that legalized discrimination against any person or group, I would veto it."
