Republican Presidential contender Ted Cruz invited one of the most outspoken and extreme anti-LGBTI activists in the United States to participate in his campaign by speaking at a rally beside him in Ellisville Mississippi, it has been revealed.
Bryan Fischer’s public comments on homosexuality are so extreme that he was sacked from his role as Director of Issues Analysis at the American Family Association and the organization’s chief public face.
Fischer has claimed that Adolph Hitler and the Nazis were gay, has compared homosexuality to necrophilia and attending a same-sex wedding to visiting a crack house.
He also wants homosexuality recriminalized throughout the United States. However Cruz apparently feels comfortable sharing a platform with him.
Fischer revealed on Facebook that he had already spoken at a Cruz campaign event on 5 March alongside the campaign’s Mississippi co-chair.
‘For my Tupelo area friends: I’ll be speaking briefly at 1 pm today at a rally on behalf of Ted Cruz, at Bancorp South convention center. Keith Plunkett, Cruz’s MS co-chair, will be main speaker. Hop in the car and come on over!’ Fischer posted.
Fischer has been pushing Cruz as his preferred candidate for President of the United States for several weeks now and believes that Donald Trump will not be a strong candidate when it comes to curtailing the rights and freedom of LGBTI people.
Cruz also recently secured the support of Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant.
