Brian Camenker

-- Head of MassResistance

 

Facts

-- Said gay people are like Nazis: "The Big Lie technique (like other remnants of Nazism and the Nazi movement) has been a focus of the homosexual movement since it coalesced in the late 1980s and began to use the media on a large scale…The Big Lie was first described by Adolph Hitler in his writings, and later refined and put to use on a large scale by Joseph Goebbels, the Nazi Minister of Propaganda."

-- Ahistorical prediction: " There have been times in our history when very strange things have happened and then disappeared and people thought that it would never happen. We think of the rise of Nazism in Germany and Europe, people thought that would never disappear and never change; people thought slavery would never change; I lived in the South as a young guy and nobody thought that segregation would ever end; we all remember that nobody thought that the Soviet Union and all of that would ever fall. I believe that the whole gay marriage thing and the whole homosexual issue is artificially held up through threats and propaganda and everything else. As soon as that doesn’t continue the whole things is a house of cards and will fall."

-- Traveled to Jamaica to encourage that nation to pass laws criminalizing homosexuality

-- Says equality activists go after vulnerable kids: "They go after kids who are troubled kids who have their own issues -- psychological, emotional, what have you -- and they try to tell them that they're really 'gay' or transgendered or something like that"

-- Brian and MassResistance’s comments landed the group on the Southern Poverty Law Center's selective list of active anti-gay groups

-- Said: "Research shows that homosexual relationships are fundamentally dysfunctional on many levels, and “marriage” as we know it isn’t something they can achieve, or even desire. This is about putting the legal stamp of approval on homosexuality and imposing it with force throughout the various social and political institutions of a society that would never accept it otherwise. To the rest of America: You've been forewarned."

-- Said of LGBT activists: "They will attack anybody who speaks out. ... That's the depraved way these people work." (35:45)

-- Brian's organization is known to stand outside of LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) community events and stealthily take photos and video, including secretly filming folks visiting the restroom. They recently stood outside a bathroom and filmed transgender women who were going in to use the restroom

-- Compares LGBT advocacy to Jim Crow laws: "Homosexuality is unnatural and you have to have—just like you had to have the Jim Crow laws to keep the races apart—you have to have these laws and diversity trainings and constant propaganda to keep it going"

-- After 2012 election, bemoaned lack of  advertising asserting that "homosexual behavior was perverse, dysfunctional, and unhealthy"
