Matt Barber's ever-classy site suggests gay people are literally crushing fellow humans

by Jeremy Hooper

To highlight its umpteenth post (this week) designed to turn our fellow citizens against us (and I don't mean just our rights—I mean us), Matt Barber's rabid attack site, BarbWire.com, is running this image:

If it were just this one pic, you might write it off as gentle ribbing. But if you combine it with the other images Matt has chosen to run since his site's launch...

...a certain pattern starts to emerge.

Folks, they've stopped debating us and are now trying to make our fellow citizens hate us. I wish I was overstating that—I really do. But I simply can't un-see what I am seeing. The denigrations are getting louder and more personal, and the goals are seeming far more sinister than they did in the past.

And Matt Barber, to the surprise of no one who has followed the Liberty Counsel attorney and Liberty University law teacher through his illustrious career of animus, is leading the march.

**UPDATE: Turns out the steamroller comes from The Oatmeal, a pro-gay site. The whole point of the graphic (which you can find here) was to make an comedic statement about a claim the late Jerry Falwell made about gay people.

So basically Matt and his pals took a graphic that was used to make an exaggerated point about the over-the-top far-right and used it to prove that very same point. That's hilarious.
