Christian conservative Bryan Fischer has described gay rights activists as modern day Nazi stormtroopers.

Fischer, a spokesman for the American Family Association (AFA), told his Focal Point radio listeners that gay activists seek to “destroy” Christians just like the Nazis did the Jews.

“There are some serious pathologies associated with homosexual behavior, the homosexual lifestyle,” Fischer said. “And I've talked about this before with regard to Nazi Germany. We know that the Nazi Party started in a gay bar in Munich. And we know as a matter of historical record that most of the SS, the stormtroopers, that surrounded Hitler and were his enforcers, we know that they were homosexuals. And we know it's because he couldn't get straights to be vicious enough in being his enforcers.”

“Now, please don't misunderstand me. I'm not saying they're going around beating people up.”

“But everywhere you go, when gay activists gain the upper hand, they are thuggish, totalitarian and repressive,” he added. “Just as the homosexual stormtroopers for Hitler were to exterminate and eliminate the opposition and beat them into silence, that's what homosexual activists want to do today. … They're not content with live and let live, they've got to obliterate, they've got to punish, they've got to destroy, they've got to eliminate, they've got to marginalize, they've got to neutralize, they have to completely silence any voice that defends man-woman marriage and the abiding truths of the word of God. ” (The video is embedded on this page.
