Christian conservative Bryan Fischer has demanded the removal of the rainbow flag, calling it “a symbol of oppression.”

Fischer made his comments while discussing the controversy over the Confederate flag.

“If we are going to remove symbols of oppression from our culture,” Fischer told his radio listeners. “If we come to the point where we say any flag that represents bigotry, any flag that represents hatred, any flag that represents slavery or oppression needs to be removed, then I want to suggest to you that the next flag to go ought to be the rainbow flag of the Gay Reich.”

“The rainbow flag represents the gay lobby. It represents Big Gay. It represents … the Gay Reich. They've got a flag just like the Nazis had their flag.”

“That flag is a symbol of slavery and oppression and bigotry and prejudice and bias,” he continued. “So, if we're going to go after symbols of oppression, we ought to make the rainbow flag the next target for removal in our culture.”
