HGTV Scrubs New Show Hosted by ‘Anti-Gay’ Benham Brothers

An new HGTV series, Flip it Forward‚ had been planned for October, starring twins David and Jason Benham. However, the show has been cancelled before it even aired a single episode.

As USA Today reported, “The concept: After a decade of flipping houses for profit, the Benham guys would now help families buy the home they thought they could never afford — a small-scale, personal Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.”

The Benham Brothers

In each episode, the brothers were going to find a fixer-upper home and “transform it into their forever home — with a healthy dose of sibling rivalry between the brothers along the way,” said HGTV in their April announcement.

But today, in a tweet, HGTV discreetly announced that the show has been pulled from production.

According to, HGTV was alerted to a Tuesday story by, which delved into the background of the Benham brothers and viciously declared that they were “anti-gay, anti-choice extremists.”

A video of David protesting outside of an abortion clinic in 2013 surfaced on YouTube. Moreover, the pair are the sons of Rev. Flip Benham, who leads the pro-life organization Operation Rescue — that fact alone is enough to make a baby-murdering liberal’s eyes roll back in their head.

“David Benham protested outside of the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte in 2012,” USA Today also revealed, “which he told conservative radio host Janet Mefferd was needed to stop ‘homosexuality and its agenda that is attacking the nation.’” In my book, that earns the Mr. Benham a medal for bravery. In fact, this incident serves as a perfect illustration of the great threat that the homosexual lobby poses to all freedom-loving Americans. The Benhams are literally Big Gay’s latest scalp, and every other Bible-believing Christian could be next.

In the recorded interview with Mefford, David Benham also referred to the “demonic ideologies” that are tightening their stranglehold on our colleges and public schools. So, can someone please explain to me how his assessment is incorrect? Sounds to me like he hit the nail right on the head when it comes to describing our nation’s indoctrinational system. But apparently there’s no room for the truth at HGTV. has identified this as a vindictive “smear campaign,” posing the question, “So what’s wrong with having strong Christian beliefs and standing against the abortion movement in America?” Unfortunately, everything is wrong with that, according to the homofascists and the baby butchers. Holding to biblical values is all that’s necessary these days to be marked for personal destruction by the radical Leftists.

On their website, David is described as a father of five and “a follower of Christ.” Jason, a father of four, is often quoted as saying, “For us to take credit for building a successful business would be like a shovel taking credit for digging a hole. We’re simply the tools God chose to use to build a successful business.” They are both listed as graduates of Liberty University as well.

In response to their show’s abrupt and impersonal cancellation notice, the brother’s issued these gracious statements.

“The first and last thought on our minds as we begin and end each day is; have we shined Christ’s light today? Our faith is the fundamental calling in our lives, and the centerpiece of who we are. As Christians we are called to love our fellow man. Anyone who suggests that we hate homosexuals or people of other faiths is either misinformed or lying. Over the last decade, we’ve sold thousands of homes with the guiding principle of producing value and breathing life into each family that has crossed our path, and we do not, nor will we ever discriminate against people who do not share our views.”

“We were saddened to hear HGTV’s decision. With all of the grotesque things that can be seen and heard on television today you would think there would be room for two twin brothers who are faithful to our families, committed to biblical principles, and dedicated professionals. If our faith costs us a television show then so be it.”

And to think that this “nefarious” duo almost had their own television show! What would we ever do without Right Wing Watch’s character assassination tactics?

So, instead of a starring on a new show called Flip it Forward, HGTV flipped off the Benham Brothers. And the people they would have helped through their series can now kiss their dream homes goodbye.

It’s homosexuality, abortion and political correctness at all costs. Liberals simply don’t care who they hurt in their unremitting campaign to crush all conservative and Christian dissent — wherever they may be found.
