Shocking audio: Conservative radio host Erick Erickson equates gay activists w/ Paris terrorists

by Jeremy Hooper

At the start of tonight's show, proudly anti-gay radio host Erick Erickson (who is also a Fox News contributor) began his show by making it sound like he was leading with the tragic incident in Paris, as any political radio host understandably would on this day. But the conservative talker's referenced "terrorism" was not, in fact, the killings at Charlie Hebdo. Instead, it was the Atlanta mayor's decision to terminate his fire chief for not only publishing a book that denounced homosexuality but also talking about his situation while an investigation was ongoing. Erickson blames gay activists and gay activism for the firing, and he thinks today is the day to call these activists "terrorists" who are, in his view, on par with the gunmen who took twelve human lives today in France.

The must-be-heard-to-be-believed audio below:

[Erick Erickson Show, 1/7/15]

In ten years of covering this stuff, I'm not sure I've ever heard a more "mainstream" person make such a callous and shocking conflation on the very day of a tragedy. This is beyond the pale.
