Bryan Fischer says only losers call other people “Nazis”

Hide your irony meters, folks. The American Family Association’s über-bigoted Bryan Fischer, who often goes so far that even the AFA itself is compelled to censor him, is now saying that only pathetic losers without an argument would call their opponents “Nazis”:

[…] Fischer kicked off the program by stating that somewhere on the internet, someone had referred to him as a "Nazi gas bag" ... and claimed that when people start calling you a Nazi, it is proof that they do not have any legitimate arguments to make:

And by the way, ladies and gentlemen, this is a clear indication that the Left has lost the argument and the debate in public policy. Because name-calling is the first refuge of a man who does not have an argument. As soon as someone starts calling you names, then realize they're out of ammunition, they're out of arguments. They can't reason with you any longer, they don't have facts on their side, they don't have reason on their side, they don't have logic on their side, they don't have history on their side, they don't have research on their side, they don't have science on their side so they start calling you things like a "Nazi gas bag."

Of course, this is coming from a man who would make Glenn “Nazi Tourette’s” Beck proud. Here’s Fischer just two months ago openly and unequivocally declaring that gays are Nazis:

I mean, ladies and gentlemen, they are Nazis. Homosexual activists, when it comes to freedom of speech, are Nazis. When it comes to freedom of religion, they are Nazis. There is no room in their world dissent, there is no room in their world for disagreement, there is no room in their world for criticism. You criticize homosexual behavior, they tag you as a bigot and a homophobe and then they got to work to silence you just like the Roman Catholic Church did in the days of Galileo - it's no different; it's the Spanish Inquisition all over again.

Ladies and gentlemen, they are Nazis. Do not be under any illusions about what homosexual activists will do with your freedoms and your religion if they have the opportunity. They'll do the same thing to you that the Nazis did to their opponents in Nazi Germany.

As the writer quips, “Bryan Fischer is a lot of things ... but self-aware is not one of them.” Then again, Fischer’s not necessarily wrong; he did just say that only people who don’t have “reason”, “logic” or “arguments” call their ideological opponents “Nazis”. He just doesn’t understand how right he is.
