The director of issues analysis of the fundamentalist American Family Association (AFA) on Thursday warned that “homofascists” were going to make anti-LGBT Christians wear badges like Jews had to wear during the Holocaust in Nazi Germany.
During his Focal Point radio show, AFA’s Bryan Fischer explained that he was outraged that Dr. Ben Carson decided to drop out as commencement speaker at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine after his comments linking same sex marriage to bestiality.
“If you don’t believe in sodomy-based marriage, you’re not prepared to endorse and sanction sodomy-based marriage, you have no place in this institution,” Fischer complained. “So we’re getting to the point — I don’t know what the emblem would be — remember when the Jews in Nazi Germany, they had to wear a yellow Star of David on their sleeve? I mean, we’re getting to the point now, that’s what they’re going to make us do.”
“I don’t know what the symbol would be, I’d have to think about that,” he continued. “We’re getting to the point where these homofascists are going to force us to wear on our sleeves some kind of identifying marker so people will know who the racists and the homophobes and the bigots are, and can stay away from them.”
In fact, men arrested for homosexuality in Nazi Germany were forced to wear inverted pink triangles as identifying badges in labor and concentration camps.
“As part of the Nazis’ attempt to purify German society and propagate an ‘Aryan master race,’ they condemned homosexuals as ‘socially aberrant,'” according to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. “Many survivors have testified that men with pink triangles were often treated particularly severely by guards and inmates alike because of widespread biases against homosexuals.”

‘Game changer’: Morning Joe panel nails Giuliani’s confessional outburst as evidence for Trump impeachment
Panelists on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" agreed President Donald Trump's phone call to Ukraine's president should be a "game changer" -- and was clearly "impeachable."
The July 25 call appears to have triggered a complaint from a whistleblower, after the president allegedly offered military and financial aid to Ukraine in exchange for pursuing an investigation into Joe Biden's son doing business there.
"It does feel like a moment in time," said MSNBC's Donny Deutsch. "We've sat on this set after so many Trump's snafus and this is it -- this is a game changer. If the Democrats can't smell this. I've been going all along, step away from impeachment because when it's a process thing, when it's campaign finance, this is the big one. If this is the case, this is the Super Bowl, and the Democrats need to pounce aggressively."
Watch Rudy Giuliani’s stunning confession that he has been pressuring Ukraine officials for dirt on Biden
Attorney for the president Rudy Giuliani gave a combative, belligerent and downright incoherent interview on CNN Thursday evening, raving about a ballooning scandal involving Donald Trump and Ukraine.
Giuliani and Trump have apparently been pressuring the country to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, a probe that could help the president’s re-election campaign. That massive scandal had been unfurling on its own for months, but it blew up Thursday when multiple reports revealed that a mysteriously suppressed whistleblower complaint in the intelligence community reportedly concerns Trump’s conduct and the country of Ukraine.
‘It’s treachery if not treason’: Harvard’s Laurence Tribe destroys Trump’s claim he’s above the law
Legendary constitutional law expert Laurence Tribe explained the legality of President Donald Trump's claim to be above the law during a Thursday evening appearance on MSNBC's "The Last Word" with Lawrence O'Donnell.
The host played a notorious clip of Trump.
"I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose any voters. Okay? It’s like incredible," Trump argued.
"And now he has gone beyond that," O'Donnell noted. "Now the president is sayin, 'I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot someone and I cannot be prosecuted for that crime. Or any crime.'"
