Bryan Fischer Idaho Values AllianceIt should come as no surprise that Bryan Fischer, executive director of the non-profit “organization,” Idaho Values Alliance, which consists only of himself, is once again being reckless with the facts.

Fischer’s desperate attacks against LGBT people are practically a daily obsession that could easily be dismissed as ridiculous were it not for his malicious tone.

He is Idaho’s front man for the anti-gay industry and he is betting the farm that his lemming-like followers will keep coughing up cash so he can continue his operation of sewing the seeds of fear and loathing.

Fischer’s contempt is so strong he regularly calls us Nazis, fascists, child molesters and more recently his lunatic claim that including sexual orientation in hate crime legislation would protect pedophiles.

Adding a new drum beat to his act, Fischer is parroting other far right extremists with, “GREAT NEWS: Even the left admits there is no gay gene.” A weak and flailing attempt to argue homosexuality is nothing but an immoral lifestyle choice.

Bryan Fischer+Hate Crime Prevention Bill=Pedophile Protection Act

H. Lukas Green contributed to this piece.

Bryan Fischer Idaho Values AllianceThe economic recession has had an adverse impact on nearly every sector of the American economy except for one; the growing anti-gay industry lead by self-proclaimed Christian leaders who sell fear and contempt inside a package called “family values.”

Idaho’s chief CEO of lies and misinformation about LGBT citizens is none other than Bryan Fischer, the pitchman for the so-called Idaho Values Alliance. Fischer’s talent for garnering easy access to the Idaho news media to sell his poisonous product rivals any Wall Street crook with a Ponzi scheme designed to separate grand mom from her life savings.

Except that in this case, Fischer’s game is to separate citizens he loathes from their rights as equal citizens under the law by promoting stereotypes that illicit fear and hate through a marketing plan crafted by far right extremists whose vision of America and the world is limited to their own narrow-minded ideology.

Jordan's HallmarkAn Idaho anti-gay propagandist is crowing success on his non-profit political website about how his intervention with a local Hallmark card shop owner lead to a decision not to sell same-sex greeting cards.

The head of the so-called Idaho Values Alliance was apparently set to call for a boycott of the seven Jordan Hallmark stores owned by Philip R. Johnson, until the man disclosed that he had no intention of selling the cards. However, he said he would special order them upon request.

Johnson said his business decision was based on controversial news coverage and the cartoon-like drawing showing two tuxedos side-by-side that appear to be joined at the wrist. He said would not have stocked the cards simply based on the cartoon image and the related news coverage, regardless of being contacted by Bryan Fischer, IVA executive director.

Faith-Based Hate Speech Pollutes Idaho

One of the biggest recruiters of hate spoke at the so-called “Shake the Nation” conference here is Boise this weekend was Scott Lively, author of “The Pink Swastika,” an evil tool that blames homosexuals for the Holocaust.

Lively is a fraud who masks his hate speech as a spiritual message. His brand of faith-based bigotry is specifically crafted to generate fear about gay people, the kind of fear that escalates into violence.

Bryan Fischer is the local mouth piece for the right-wing agenda, which seems increasingly obsessed with homosexuals. While in his role as executive director of the Idaho Values Alliance, Fischer uses the non-profit IVA website to promote Lively’s twisted political propaganda.

“The Pink Swastika” has little to do with religion and promoting Christian values, but everything to do with hiding behind non-profit status while promoting political propaganda.

Lively sows the seeds of hatred masked as God’s message by lying about LGBT people.

Anti-Gay Author of The Pink Swastika Scott LivelyLast summer, in a speech Lively (left) gave in Novosibirsk, Russia, he spews his religious extremist garbage saying, “I have been working with the Russian community in Sacramento; I want to tell you that this is an example that will show you how bad things are in the United States. Because we have come to a place in the United Sates where the homosexuals have achieved very high power and that they have begun to punish, they have begun to cause the political powers to punish anyone who says that homosexuality is wrong,” says Lively.

Boise Non-Profit Spews Anti-Gay Hate Propaganda

Idaho Values Alliance Executive Director Bryan FisherBryan Fischer (left), Executive Director of the Idaho Values Alliance, a 501(c)(3) non-profit tax exempt organization, is widely known as the self anointed moral police for family values in Idaho. Fischer recently posted a rabidly homophobic article on his website. This brand of fiction, also reproduced on Alan Keys website Renew America, does nothing but perpetuate fear, loathing and hatred of LGBT people.

In the May 15th “story”, “The truth about homosexuality and the Nazi Party,” Fischer defends Scott Lively, author of ‘The Pink Swastika.’ Published in the mid-nineties, the book has been extensively debunked as anti-gay propaganda.

Why now, well Lively will be speaking at a Christian conservative religious conference here in Boise this weekend called “Shake the Nation.”

In an apparent response to comments made about Lively and his book by The Interfaith Alliance of Idaho, Fischer claims the “far-left” group accused Lively of “bearing false witness” and of being “mean-spirited and hurtful.”

Fischer’s discourse goes on to parrot Lively’s obsession with homosexuals and Nazi’s to Idaho conservatives.

“Lively’s crime? says Fischer, “In his book, ‘The Pink Swastika,’ Lively exposes a secret homosexual activists don’t want you to know about Nazi Germany: that although the Nazis did persecute homosexuals, the homosexuals the Nazis persecuted were almost exclusively the effeminate members of the gay community in Germany, and that much of the mistreatment was administered by masculine homosexuals who despised effeminacy in all its forms.”
