Scott Lively on the Daily Show

Jim Burroway

July 29th, 2010

Jason Jones caught up with Holocaust revisionist Scott Lively on last night’s The Daily Show. Believe me, you so have to watch this:

The Daily Show With Jon Stewart Mon – Thurs 11p / 10c
Gay Reichs

Daily Show Full Episodes Political Humor Tea Party

 
 
I loved watching Lively’s facial expressions as he understood how completely crazy he sounded at times. I wonder at what point did he realized that this was not your typical deferential documentary?

Scott Lively is co-author of The Pink Swastika, now in its fourth edition, in which he claims that Nazism and fascism were, at its core, a gay movement, and that in any country where LGBT equality becomes a reality, violent and murderous fascism would be the inevitable result. Last June, Lively warned that if “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” were repealed, the U.S. military would be taken over by modern-day Nazis. In March of 2009, Lively was one of three American anti-gay activists who put on a conference in Kampala, Uganda, which laid the groundwork for the introduction of the draconian Anti-Homosexuality Bill. He told that audience that murderous gay men were likely responsible for the 1994 Rwandan massacre.

An interview with Scott Lively in any other medium would create the danger of lending credibility to him.

As far as anti-gay activists go, he’s truly one of the most evil of them all, and he’s far more dangerous than the Westboro Baptist Church could ever be because he’s literally going out and trying to get us killed.

The fascists wish it was that easy. Instead they have to write a bunch of angry speeches and invade Czechoslovakia, it’s alot of work and their offended at Scott Lively trivializing their effort.

I love jon stewart– one of the few honest and forthright people around.

Hahah, absolutely skewered. Loved that he had to clarify he wasn’t gay. And he’s so ignorant not to know all those other countries have gays in their militaries. How can he claim to be an expert if he’s not even up to date on present reality?

That sad, he’s far more savage, brutal, and morally unrestrained than any homosexual in history with the death camps he’s trying to start up in Africa.

Maybe Lively’s right. But why stop there? Why not expose the FULL story of the Nazis? They were clearly gay, gypsy, Jehovah’s Witnesses Jews. The MOST vicious, ruthless, hateful and immoral kind of killing machines. They exterminated ALL of these minorities to cover their own identities as HomaRomaHovaHebes!

His new book should be entitled, “The Pink, Green, Brown, Yellow Star of David Swastika: The WHOLE Story of the Nazis Exposed!”

Another hilarious part this didn’t show was when he asked Scott Lively about what has happened in other countries where gay troops can serve openly. Then he started naming them off really fast, and he ended with a slightly drawn-out annunciation of “Uruguay.” HAHA. LMAO. Take that, Scott Lively, ya crazy whackjob!

Great to see our friends there in the ‘attack’ group of gay men. David Mixner, I’m in LOVE with you!

I’m so disappointed that I can’t watch the pillock for myself, since the video isn’t available in the UK. Any chance of a transcription of the highlights?

I can’t believe Lively let himself be pilloried like that. But the moment when he starts to suspect that he’s the fool is just priceless.

May God help the poor sick bastard. The man is obviously deluded, and deranged, which makes him a threat to society itself.

I must say, I get somewhat offended by you Americans as a Dutch gay. First we have a general stating we could not keep Srebrenica safe because of the huge amount of gays in the Dutch military and now this Scott Lively goes the opposite direction by calling us fighting machines and even Nazi’s? Make up your minds Yanks or we, the Dutch Gay Mareens, ARE COMING OVER;)

Seriously, •no one• on Scott’s staff (Heh) knew what The Daily Show was? How is that possible?

Ryan perhaps Lively and his type are humourless people who would never think to watch something on the Comedy Network. Or maybe they thought it was a serious news show just as for years I thought the Red Green show was a serious show about hunting and fishing.

I found the interview funny, but chilling.

The Daily Show doesn’t have the time to connect the rest of the dots to Lively’s reach and impact.

Larry Adams runs a vanity ministry from his kitchen table; Scott Lively consults with religious and government leaders around the globe.

Make up our minds? The only thing I’ve made up my mind about is that an invasion of Dutch Gay Marines sounds exciting!

PZ Myers at Pharyngula picked up on this story:

Lively is an evil little liar, so it was delightful to see him exposed on the Daily Show. This is one of the clearest illuminations of the insanity of these gay-hating evangelicals I’ve seen. . .

. . . The best moment was after Lively expounded on his ferocious gay Nazi theory and how the Nazi’s public denunciation of gays was evidence that they were all secretly gay, the interviewer asks him, “That which you hate the most you secretly are?” Reverend Scott Lively sits there stunned for a moment before he can say, “I’m not gay.”

Caught the show last night. Unfortunately I was enjoying a toasted muffin with vegemite at the time. Damn near choked myself to death within seconds.

(Could have been worse, spose. Could have been a pretzel.)

Remember, Scott Lively was the California State Director of the American Family Association for YEARS while peddling his halocaust revisionism at the same time.

The AFA did not fire or disassociate themselves with him after he had to pay a civil judgement as a result ofhim physically assaulting a Gay rights supporter in Oregon.
