Michael Leisner is no stranger to crazy homo-hating.

Some thought it might've been a hoax. Turns out it was the work of a homo-hating Christian nutjob.

The Smoking Gun blog has identified the General Mills protesting, Cheerios-burning Flaming Homophobe as Michael Leisner, 65, "a Minnesota real estate broker who has previously recorded a series of anti-gay YouTube clips."

From "Meet The Blowtorch-Carrying Gay Marriage Opponent Who Set That General Mills Lawn On Fire":
On Michael Leisner's YouTube page (Live4Chr1st) he can be seen attacking Representative Barney Frank and Bill Maher, while noting that President Barack Obama has "bent forward to accommodate the sodomites of New York." He also makes reference to "gay perverts," "fierce faggots," and the "depraved, debasing debauchery of gay activists."

In an interview [yesterday] afternoon, Leisner said that his son posted the video to YouTube and that he did not check to determine the legality of his blowtorch protest before arriving at General Mills a few days ago. He said that he believed the company's lawn was "saturated" and that there was little chance of the fire spreading.

Leisner told TSG that he has previously taught the Bible on radio shows and has done "campus preaching with some notorious right wing Holy Ghost preacher types." Asked if he thought law enforcement officials might want to speak with him about the General Mills protest, he replied, "I suppose it's possible."
It appears YouTube's power brokers have shut down Leisner's account since the Smoking Gun's blog post was published yesterday. An attempt to look at his older videos landed us at this page:

So now that the Flaming Homophobe has been identified, will Golden Valley authorities try to prosecute him for arson and/or damaging property? We kinda hope they have better things to do, but on the other hand, boy, that'd be fun.

You all know this guy is doing a parody, right?  His other videos pretty much proved it, as do his lisping, effeminate ways.  Where is the evidence that anything this man claimed he was is true?  What radio show?  What station?

Blaine, yes it is, he garned some fame (or infamy as it were) by preaching on the U of M mall with Brother Jeb. As to the charges, it looks like they are moving forward, and I am awaiting word from the Manager of Security Operations at General Mills as to moving forward. I was able to archive all the videos before his "live4chr1st" account was closed, those are ready to be forwarded to federal authorities. He does have a second youtube account under the username notjustkickingtires

I seriously thought it had to be a spoof... Well keep up the hilarious "Anti-Gay" protests and this guy could become the next "pro-gay" viral advertising icon!

Is this the guy that used to tag team the U of M Mall with Brother Jeb?

Michael Leisner:  C'mon on son, its time to film your 65 year old Dad in a pink shirt ranting about the evils of homosexuality. 

 

Michael Leisner's son:  No!  I don't want to!   It's creepy and weird how obsessed you are with boners Dad!

 

Michael Leisner:  You shut your mouth!  Don't you realize how important this issue is!  Come look at gay pornography with me again.

 

Michael Leisner's son:  No!  It's weird. 

 

Michael Leisner:  Marcus Bachmann says its perfectly normal.  Come look at the evil in this naked dude's eyes.  Marcus says you really have to stare at them to understand the evil.

 

Michael Leisner's son:  Please Dad, I don't want to.  Fine I'll do anything to not have to look at naked guys with you again.   Do I have to wear the pink shirt?

 

Michael Leisner:  The pink shirt is key son.  It lets those homos know you aren't afraid of them. 

 

Michael Leisner's son:  I'm sick of all the kids at school bullying me! 

 

Michael Leisner:   Why would they bully the coolest most normal kid ever?

I suspect others, besides the authorities may want to have a word with him as well. Someone could easily find out where he lives, and with how flammable those Cheerios are, probably a good thing he's in real estate. Hope noone does anything stupid.

 @cags777 Fascinating. I can't find anything about it still. Do you know which Fox reporter said that? Was it on TV?

 @cags777 I've heard that too but have been unable to verify. Where'd you hear that?

 @MicheleBachmann While your story is funny (even I had to chuckle about it), let's not forget that not even 3 months ago your hero Obama defended marriage as a union between a man and woman, and just CONVENIENTLY changed his tune as the elections are coming up.  As the Church Lady would say, "HOW CONVENIENT!!!".

 @mariadkins Yep. Read that and links in the Star Tribune. Thanks for posting though.

 @atrupar One of the anchors (Jeff Passolt I believe) reported the news. It was sometime between 9:30-9:45 last night. Looks like you may have to be a "deather" and ask for his death certificate.

 @atrupar It was reported on Fox 9 News last night. I tried looking it up on their website, but couldn't find it though. And is it just me or is his death pure coincidence?

 @kenny1 Kenny1 - I totally agree. After we re-elect President Obama for a second term we need to work on getting a true progressive elected in 2016,
