Radio host calls for rainbow flag to be banned because it’s ‘offensive’ to straight people
Radio host calls for rainbow flag to be banned because it’s ‘offensive’ to straight peopleBryan Fischer made the claim on his American Family Radio ‘Focal Point’ show.
Amid ongoing unrest across the US surrounding the status of Confederate flags and monuments, Fischer suggested rainbow flags should be pulled down.
He said: “There’s a lot of effort right now to get rid of the Confederate flag. There’s a public school system in North Carolina because it is divisive. No more Confederate flag.
“There’s another symbol that is just as divisive… If we are going to ban the Confederate flag because it is divisive, how about we ban the LGBT flag at school?
“If we are going to ban the Confederate flag at school because it creates division, because it is offensive to people, I propose that everywhere the Confederate flag is banned, at the same time the LGBT rainbow flag [should] be banned, at exactly the same time for exactly the same reasons.
“It is offensive, it is contrary to our most deeply held values, it divides people, it does not bring them together.
“It’s time to have the LGBT flag banned right alongside the Confederate flag. If we’re going to ban one, I submit we need to ban the other.”

He made the claim in response to reports of a serious pilot deficit in the US Air Force.
Experts say the shortfall in trained pilots is down to ‘poaching’ by commercial airlines, which have attempted to lure pilots away with higher-paid jobs.

But in a Facebook post, Mr Fischer claimed that they were actually leaving the military because there are too many homosexuals.
He wrote: “We said if gays were allowed in the military, it would affect retention. We’re seeing it with fighter pilots.”
Of course, you would never find homosexuals working anywhere near commercial airplanes, so it’s the one safe refuge for macho-style men’s men.
Fischer insisted earlier this year that homosexuals are ‘literally’ Nazi stormtroopers.
The right-wing American Family Association, which runs American Family Radio, pretended to sack spokesperson Bryan Fischer in 2015 for comparing gays to Nazis after senior Republican lawmakers faced questions over financial ties to the AFA.
