Rep. Louie Gohmert likened the cancellation of HGTV’s “Flip it Forward” to Nazism during a speech on the House floor Friday. According to the Texas Republican, backlash from anti-gay remarks that the show’s hosts made demonstrates a totalitarian atmosphere. “Look we love homosexuals, we love all people. But it doesn’t mean that you have to support, embrace, encourage particular lifestyles that you believe are harmful to the individuals and harmful to the society in general. So it is amazing that in the name of liberality, in the name of being tolerant, this fascist intolerance has arisen.”
