Mission America’s Linda Harvey is the latest conservative voice to defend wedding vendors who've turned away same-sex couples, comparing the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights movement to Nazi Germany in the process.
Harvey, whose opposition to LGBT causes is well-established, defended Pennsylvania's W.W. Bridal Boutique and New York's Liberty Ridge Farm, the latter of which was reportedly fined $13,000 for turning down two brides-to-be, in her broadcast.
As Right Wing Watch reported, Harvey called the controversies "totally unnecessary" and "homosexually-instigated," before noting, "This is all part of the strong-armed bullying of those who are determined to force everyone in America to serve the interests of homosexuals."

She then concluded, "You thought you lived in the U.S.A. of 2014, not Germany in 1936, right?”
Harvey is not the first conservative voice to evoke Nazi Germany in a discussion of LGBT causes.
"It's not an exaggeration to say 'homofascist' because the German Nazi Party was homosexual," TruNews host Rick Wiles said last month. "Hitler was a homosexual, the top Nazi leadership, all of them were homosexuals...they were creating a homosexual special race."
On a similar note, the American Family Association's Bryan Fischer referred to LGBT rights advocates as "Nazi stormtroopers" who are "totalitarian and repressive" in a 2013 broadcast.
