Laura Ingraham’s show briefly went off the rails on Thursday night when an anti-LGBT activist she had on as a guest tried to use the segment to promote a book called “The Health Hazards of Homosexuality.”
The Fox News host used a portion of her Thursday show to talk about “Drag Queen Story Hour,” a series of events that have been taking place at libraries and bookshops around the country in which drag queens speak with children about their culture and experiences.
Ingraham introduced Arthur Schaper as the California chapter head of MassResistance, but didn’t note that the group that has been labeled as anti-LGBT after their members compared homosexuality to bestiality and pedophilia — nor did this deter the Fox News host from inviting Schaper on the program in the first place.
From the SPLC:
The California chapter of anti-LGBT hate group MassResistance was formed in May 2016 by longtime anti-immigrant and nativist activist Arthur Schaper. Now it’s added a white nationalist to its ranks. MassResistance, the anti-LGBT hate group based in Massachusetts whose president, Brian Camenker, continually links homosexuality to pedophilia, violence and disease and links trans women to sexual predators, has been expanding its chapter base in recent years.
One of the most active chapters has been in California, run by perpetual right-wing activist Arthur Schaper, a columnist for TownHall.com and freelance writer based in Torrance, California. He splits his time between cheerleading for President Trump, protesting against immigrant protections and opposing LGBT people.
California-based white nationalist and self-proclaimed “traditionalist” Kenny Strawn took notice of Schaper’s activities and announced in a July 30 YouTube video [third below] that he had joined the California chapter of MassResistance, claiming Schaper as a good friend. Strawn also claimed in the video he joined because he’s tired of being “misorientationed”— that is, according to him, tired of gay men assuming he’s gay, and he’s pleased to join Schaper in this “anti-degeneracy” effort.
As you’ll see in the second clip below, Schaper furiously live-streamed his ride home to attack Ingraham for cutting off his book plug.
