If it were just Alan Keyes saying it, I'd shrug and write it off to the usual crazies, but it's not. Yesterday American Family Association director Bryan Fischer went on the radio to warn his listeners that homofascists were going to round them up and mark them -- BEWARE THE BEAST.
And now we have Alan Keyes, whose daughter is gay, claiming gay marriage will lead the country into an inexorable decline to communism. But not just communism, my friends. Oh no, we've got trouble in River City because those "homofascists" (WTF are those?) are going to lead us to the "murder of the masses."
RightWingWatch posted the transcript, and yes, he really did say that:
It returns us to the dark ages of human oppression, which America was founded to remove humanity from, and it is the whole point of the push for homosexual marriage and homosexual rights. The aim is not compassion for homosexuals, respect for homosexuals and all of this; the aim in the mind of these hardheaded, calculating, leftist, Communist, totalitarians is to destroy the family and to establish the notion that once you have seized power there is no limit whatsoever to what you can do. If you want to tolerate abuses then those abuses can be imposed upon the people. Once you establish that, the abuses are then not going to be confined to egregious outrages like this; those abuses are going to be committed against the whole society and they will in the end include the murder of the masses as has occurred in all Communist regimes that existed. That includes as well the expropriation of all property because if you don’t respect the primordial God-endowed belongings that are associated with family life then why on earth would you be constrained to respect any other form of human property claim.
What goes on in their little lizard brains? Teh gay will cause the murder of the masses?
I'm waiting for the air raid siren to go off warning me about the roving armies of "homofascists" coming for me and my family. And my healthcare.
