Fischer: 'The Most Patriotic Thing We Can Do Today Is To Worship The Lord Our God'

Bryan Fischer began his radio broadcast today with a reading from Leviticus 26 and a discussion about how this passage teaches that one must be a Christian in order to be a patriotic American.

Citing the passage from Leviticus in which God says that he will bless a nation "if you follow my decrees and are careful to obey my commands," Fischer declared that if someone wants to be a patriotic American today, that means they must "worship the Lord your God and serve him only."

"No counterfeit religions, no cults, no counterfeit versions of Christianity, no occultic Eastern religions," Fischer proclaimed. "You shall worship the Lord your God and serve him only."

Given that Fischer believes that every faith that differs from him the one he holds is a counterfeit faith, it stands to reason that those who do not share his faith must also be incapable of being true American patriots, like Fischer.

"So that's the most patriotic thing you can do today, ladies and gentlemen," he concluded, "is worship God and obey him. And when you do that, you will be making the biggest contribution you can make to the country you love":

Fischer: Valerie Jarrett Ordered Bin Laden Raid Without Even Consulting President Obama

On his radio broadcast yesterday, Bryan Fischer eagerly helped spread the emerging right-wing narrative that murdered journalist James Foley could have easily been rescued but President Obama was too busy playing golf to approve the rescue mission in time to save him.

But in Fischer's telling, the tale grew even more bizarre when he then asserted that it was really White House advisor Valerie Jarrett who ordered the raid that killed Osama bin Laden and did so without even telling President Obama.

"The best information we have," Fischer stated, "is that Valerie Jarrett pulled the trigger and told the Seal Team Six 'you got to go in and get him.' It was Valerie Jarrett that said 'look, we have an opportunity here, we can't afford to pass up this opportunity. I'm not even going to consult with Barack Obama. I'm not even going to consult with the president on this one, he's out playing golf, I'm just going to give the go signal' ... So Valerie Jarrett was functioning as the de facto Commander in Chief":

While this bizarre theory plays into Fischer's long-held belief that President Obama was so uninvolved in the Bin Laden raid that he had to be Photoshopped into the iconic photo of the situation room, it rather conflicts with the other right-wing conspiracy theory that it was Jarrett who repeatedly thwarted attempts to capture or kill Bin Laden.

That claim is not true either, but Fischer ought to at least try a little harder to get his conspiracy theories straight.

Paranoia-Rama: Immigrant Child Warriors, Gay Recruitment, And Obama's Race War

RWW’s Paranoia-Rama takes a look at five of the week’s most absurd conspiracy theories from the Right.

If President Obama is starting a race war, he will probably use his army of child migrants, gay public school students and “Muslim brothers” to join the fight. None of that will matter, of course, if Ebola sweeps across America first.

5. Child Migrants Bringing In Ebola, Probably

With Republican members of Congress including Michele Bachmann, Phil Gingrey and Todd Rokita warning that the unaccompanied minors crossing the southern border could unleash the Ebola virus on America, we shouldn’t be surprised that at least one GOP candidate for Congress is also stirring up baseless fears about immigrant children carrying Ebola.

Arizona House Speaker Andy Tobin, who is seeking the GOP nomination to challenge Democratic Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick, said people wouldn’t be surprised if Central American child migrants are infected with Ebola. Tucson Weekly reports:

Tobin says he's hearing about worries from constituents that the recent wave of undocumented youth from Central America could cause an Ebola outbreak in the United States.

"Anything's now possible," Tobin said last week. "So if you were to say the Ebola virus has now entered (the country), I don't think anyone would be surprised."

Tobin acknowledged that Ebola has been limited to outbreaks in Africa, "to the extent that they're really aware of that. I think there is a reason we should be concerned about it and say, 'Hey, can you assure us the people crossing the border are not from the Middle East?' ... So I use that as an example, that the public would not be surprised to hear about the next calamity at the border."

4. Child Migrants Might Be Anti-American Warriors

If the Central American child migrants aren’t already dead from Ebola, then that means they are probably Venezuelan-trained child “warriors” who will “rise up against us as Americans” any day now. At least that is what we learned from an extremely informative and not-at-all speculative conversation between RNC Committeewoman Tamara Scott, who is also Concerned Women for America’s Iowa state director, and Texas Tea Party activist Mary Huls:

Alex Jones and William Gheen also wondered if the minors are really child soldiers who will kill Americans for “Obamaphones.”

3. Obama Wants A Race War!

Are President Obama and administration officials like Eric Holder using the Ferguson riots to launch a race war? Of course! At least that is what is occurring in the far-right fantasy land inhabited by Larry Klayman, who is warning that “the racist Obama and his henchmen like Eric Holder have succeeded in creating what in effect is a huge racial divide and race war in the nation.”

“[O]ur so-called president and his attorney general jump to judgment, on a consistent and regular basis, against ‘whitey’ and in favor of their black brothers,” Klayman said. “At this rate, it is remarkable that Obama has not renamed the White House ‘the Black House.’”

Ted Nugent agrees, arguing this week that “President Obama continues to beat the race drum” because he hopes “fanning the embers of racism will keep black Americans squarely in the corner of their big daddy Democratic Party.” Wayne Allyn Root added, “Obama needs ‘division.’ Race warfare. Class warfare. Anger. Resentment. Civil war.”

2. Obama’s ‘Muslim Brothers’ Crafting U.S. Foreign Policy

Rep. Louie Gohmert is pretty sure that the Muslim Brotherhood is running the show in the Obama administration and has used its influence to boost extremist groups like ISIS. “If you’re commander-in-chief you can’t be listening to Muslim brother advise on when it’s time to stop destroying Muslim brothers,” the Texas GOP congressman said in an interview this week.

Gohmert’s House colleague Trent Franks, an Arizona Republican who thinks Obama might just be a secret Muslim, said that with the Bowe Berghdal swap, the Obama administration sent “a signal to the whole jihadist world” to kidnap Americans like James Foley.

“I’m afraid we sent the message to the terrorists, again, that this president will vacillate and not do what is necessary in times of crisis,” Franks said.

1. Gays Coming To Recruit Kids

Schools are using Common Core to brainwash your kids and turn them gay, according to the Tea Party of Louisiana, which proudly cited a satirical article from a parody news site titled “Common Core Turns First Wave Of Students Gay” to make its case.

When a reporter for the Times-Picayune asked the Tea Party group’s spokesman Bob Reid why his organization decided to cite an article from an outlet whose “About” page reads, “If you believe any of the shit you read here you are a freaking moron,” he responded that he was simply trying to “bring attention of the Common Core issue to those who maybe aren't paying attention.”

The American Family Association is  also worried about “recruitment programs” in public schools that are led by gay rights advocates who are “seeking to draw susceptible students into their ranks.” Randy Thomasson of Save California, for his part, said schools are pressuring children to participate in a “perverse, unnatural, unbiblical, unhealthy, tyrannical sexual agenda.”

Fischer: God Will Use ISIS To Punish America For Gay Rights

On his radio program today, Bryan Fischer spent an entire segment delivering a convoluted exegesis of the Old Testament in an effort to explain that God will eventually get fed up with America's tolerance of homosexuality and will use radical Islamic groups like ISIS to carry out his wrath.

Just as God used the Israelites to destroy the Canaanites as punishment for their utter debauchery and then used "pagan armies" to punish Israel when it fell into sin, Fischer explained, so too will God use Islamic radicals to inflict his judgment upon America.

Asserting that the people of Sodom and Gomorrah are "just like the Gay Gestapo is today" and that America is celebrating behavior that God calls an abomination while persecuting those who stand for God's values, Fischer warned that "God eventually is going to run out of patience with the United States."

And when that day comes, he said, God "will use pagan armies to discipline his people if they turn from him in rebellion and disobedience and descend into debauchery," pointing to the rise of ISIS to raise the possibility that "God will use the pagan armies of Allah to discipline the United States for our debauchery":

Brian Camenker: Gay Rights Activists Orchestrating High School Students Coming Out As Gay

Today, the American Family Associaton’s OneNewsNow interviews Brian Camenker of the Massachusetts anti-gay group MassResistance, who warns that when a high school student comes out as gay it is all part of a strategy carefully orchestrated by gay rights activists “seeking to draw susceptible students into their ranks”:

A Massachusetts family values advocate says it's no accident that so many students announce that they are homosexuals.

Brian Camenker of Mass Resistance says these incidents of students “coming out” are the result of a carefully calculated strategy by homosexual activists. He says, historically, school administrators eagerly work with activists who are seeking to draw susceptible students into their ranks.

“We saw one situation at Brookline High School in Brookline, Massachusetts, where the principal actually participated in an assembly where they encouraged kids to announce that they were coming out,” he tells OneNewsNow.

He says the activists prey on pupils who are the most vulnerable.

Camenker says it's not just in Massachusetts - this is happening all across the nation. He says parents need to know about these recruitment programs and demand that they be kept out of their children’s schools.

Fischer On Homosexuality: People 'Don't Want To Visualize It Because It Is Disgusting'

Bryan Fischer kicked off his radio program today with a discussion about the revulsion that God feels whenever gay people have sex, which is the same disgust that all human beings feel when thinking about it unless, that is, they have been brainwashed by society to accept it.

Homosexuality, Fischer explained, is an "abomination" because "it causes an inner revulsion. In other words, when you see it, you think about it, you recoil from it. Your instinct is to recoil from it in some kind of disgust."

"Homosexual behavior is an abomination to God," he continued. "When God sees it, it causes him to recoil. And when we think about the actual act of homosexuality, we have exactly the same reaction. Most people think about that, they don't want to think about that, they don't want to visualize it because it is disgusting. And if people aren't politically conditioned to accept it, their natural reaction is that's just not normal, that's just not natural, that's not what human beings were designed for, that's not what they were made for":

David Horowitz Knows Obama Is A Muslim Because He Hates America So Much

David Horowitz dropped by the American Family Association’s “Today’s Issues” today, where he spoke with AFA head Tim Wildmon about how President Obama refuses to condemn the mass killings of Christians or take military action against ISIS. Of course, Obama has repeatedly condemned the killing of Christians and has ordered 90 airstrikes against ISIS to date.

But in Horowitz’s world, Obama is cheering on ISIS because he’s a Muslim who hates America.

“Obama is an anti-American radical and I’m actually sure he’s a Muslim, he certainly isn’t a Christian,” Horowitz said. “He’s a pretend Christian in the same way he’s a pretend American. It really is disgraceful. He's inviting the terrorists to behead more Americans when he should be attacking them with our military. His whole agenda in office has been to defeat America, he lost the war in Iraq deliberately, he created a vacuum which ISIS has filled.”

“Saying he’s the worst president we’ve ever had is not saying enough.”

Wildmon said he didn’t used to believe the conspiracy theory that Obama is a secret Muslim, but now he does due to what he sees as the president’s anti-American actions.

“I think he is, I don’t think there’s really any question,” Horowitz said, arguing that Obama is a “liar” who “lies all the time.”

Horowitz also said that Obama is letting immigrants illegally cross the border in order to kill Americans through anthrax and beheadings.

“When he was re-elected, the first thought that came into my mind is, a lot of people are going to be dead because of this election, and how right I was,” he said, warning that the president “destroyed our borders” in order to let “our enemies” enter the U.S.

“They’re going to come across our border with their dirty bombs and their anthrax and whatever else, you know, their swords to behead us….The ones who are going to do the killing are coming across our open border and this president is not defending us.”

Fischer: End Muslim Immigration Because 'Islam Is Like The Ebola Virus'

In response to a video released yesterday showing Islamist extremists killing and beheading American journalist James Foley, Bryan Fischer used his radio program today to renew his call to ban all Muslim immigration to America by likening the faith to the Ebola virus.

"Islam is like the Ebola virus," Fischer said. "It's deadly. It's lethal. And all you can do with a virus like that, there's no cure for it, it can only be contained, it has to be stopped. And the way you do it is through quarantine."

Just as nations currently will not accept immigrants from places where the Ebola virus is spreading, so too should America ban Muslim immigrants, Fischer declared.

"They don't know which the citizens of that African country have the Ebola virus and which don't," he explained, "and so they say 'look, we just have to be careful, we have to protect our own people, we've got to protect the health of our own people, we cannot let anybody from your country into our country because we cannot take the chance that one of you may be a carrier of the virus.'"

The same goes for Muslims, Fischer said. "It's the people that are carriers that we have to worry about and we can't tell who has it and who doesn't, therefore we got to keep you all out of our country":

AFA's Ed Vitigliano Struggles To Understand Why 'Very Pretty Lady' Vicky Beeching Is A Lesbian

In a blog post yesterday, American Family Association research director Ed Vitigliano reacted to the news that Christian singer Vicky Beeching came out as a lesbian by trying to provide an empathetic explanation of homosexuality, and failing utterly.

“I think most men would think that Vicky was a very pretty lady,” he wrote, which “makes the subject of sexual orientation rather difficult to understand at times.” After explaining how he has always liked women, Vitigliano wrote that to gay people, being gay “must have appeared just that natural.”

But, he cautioned, gay people are “broken” like the blind and paralyzed and “in order to be Christians they will have to accept that their ‘orientation’ is a manifestation of brokenness, not wholeness.”

I was disappointed to read about yet another Christian artist who has “come out” as a homosexual and claimed that God had a hand in the process. In other words, she stated that God (1) made her a lesbian and (2) led her to declare it unashamedly to all who would listen.

I think most men would think that Vicky was a very pretty lady, and those sorts of appraisals are usually made without thinking. This makes the subject of sexual orientation rather difficult to understand at times.

Since I was five years old I’ve noticed girls. I had my first crush on a neighborhood girl and actually had a dream that I married her! I can remember my second crush in the first grade when I was six: Jill Drowns. Brown eyes, blond hair in braided pigtails. As for my wife of 33 years, well, she was the most beautiful woman I had ever seen – and still is.

I don’t know what it’s like to feel that way toward a man. I don’t know what it must have been like to feel that way toward another boy in first grade.

So I feel compassion toward homosexuals. I don’t believe most of them woke up one day and decided they’d be attracted to same sex people. Neither do I believe they’re born that way. I think the answer lies somewhere in between.

What causes homosexuality? I think there’s probably a web of causes – some apply to this group, some to that, etc. I believe that some homosexuals have endured sexual abuse or other trauma; others suffer from a deficit of some sort that turned them toward the same sex side of the aisle in an attempt to heal.

At this point I realize I have offended most of the homosexuals reading this. So let me even the score and offend some Christians: I believe some percentage of homosexuals (I have no idea how large or small) simply grew up just like me – only different. Instead of having a crush on an opposite sex person, they experienced a crush on a same sex person. To them it appeared just that natural.

But if there’s a God who designed us – and I believe there is – then we obviously aren’t designed to be attracted to the same sex. With my apologies to the Vicky Beechings of the world, the human race is clearly designed as male and female, with sexually complementary equipment. We are obviously intended to grow through childhood and enter puberty attracted to the opposite sex – because that’s the only thing that makes sense of the biological design inherent in humankind.

So for Vicky and Ray and Jennifer and Clay – how do we explain the fact that their attraction developed in complete disregard for design? Here’s the short answer: They’re broken. Why is that so hard to say? Sexual and romantic attraction was supposed to develop one way and it developed another. Maybe it was because of something that was done to them or around them; maybe it wasn’t. But it is different.

Are we not all broken in small and large ways? As a fallen race, isn't there a web of characteristics about us all that doesn’t reflect the way God designed us? If a child is born blind, does that mean God approves? Isn't it a sign that something is not as intended? Eyes were created to see. To not see is not the same as being able to see. The blind are still human, but their brokenness is still brokenness. But isn't that what we’re doing with homosexuality? Aren't we denying the obvious – that there’s a disconnect between design and operation in the homosexual? Aren’t we applauding as courageous those who declare their brokenness to be wholeness?

Only God can make a broken person whole. Sometimes it is done as a miracle, as when Jesus healed a blind or lame or paralyzed person. Sometimes we must wait for our entrance into the kingdom of heaven, when all brokenness is finally healed. I believe God can make homosexuals whole in this life. Despite the ridicule that follows such a statement, I believe that does happen. 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 says so. However, for many – or even most – homosexuals, in order to be Christians they will have to accept that their “orientation” is a manifestation of brokenness, not wholeness. Like the rest of us who are broken in some way, they will have to reject that lameness and give it to God. They will hobble through life learning to love Him more and more – and yes, learning to obey Him.

Heat also makes it likely that young men — it's mostly young men — will take to the streets to act out."

Linda Harvey Warns Gay Christians And Ex-Ex-Gays They're 'Thumbing Your Nose In The Face Of God' ​

Mission America's Linda Harvey was a guest on the AFA's "Today's Issues" broadcast this morning where the discussion turned to her concerns about the growing acceptance of the idea that people can be Christian and gay, as demonstrated by the recent announcement from British singer Vickey Beeching.

"I shudder for them," Harvey said whenever she reads about Christians who identify as gay as well as "ex-gay" Christians who renounce "ex-gay" therapy.

"We have to stop giving homosexuality special sin status," she warned, as if "that struggle is somehow different than the sin struggles of a lot of people for a lot of things and ultimately we come down on the side of what does God what me to do."

Too many people, Harvey said, are starting to believe that "homosexuality is fine" and, in doing so, they are "basically thumbing your nose in the face of God and that is not a good position to be in":

Sandy Rios: Detained Ferguson Journalist A 'Punk' Who Was 'Causing Trouble'

On Friday, Sandy Rios of the American Family Association attacked journalists Wesley Lowery and Ryan Reilly, who were detained by police officers while working in a McDonalds in Ferguson, Missouri.

Speaking on her American Family Radio program, Rios called Lowery a “punk of a reporter” who was “causing trouble, trying to make the officer mad,” adding: “These are the men, these are the young men of our country, these are the guys who are going to defend the next generation, these are the future fathers of America’s children. That’s pretty scary, isn’t it?”

Fischer: Gays Are Inherently Disqualified From Serving In Public Office

On Friday, Texas Governor Rick Perry was indicted by a grand jury over his efforts to force Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg to resign from office following her arrest for drunk driving.

Lehmberg is gay and so, naturally, Bryan Fischer used this story to proclaim on his radio program today that all gay people ought to be banned from serving in public office.

"My view of public service," Fischer declared, "is that somebody who is engaged in sexually deviant behavior is not qualified to hold public office. That's why if you get a conviction for rape, you can't hold public office. You get a conviction for pedophilia, you can't hold public office. You might even get run out of office on a prostitution charge because it's sexually deviant behavior. Now lesbianism is sexually deviant behavior because it deviates from God's plan and design for human sexually. So I believe that this is a person who, because she's involved in sexually deviant behavior, should be, ought to be disqualified from public service":

Fischer: Michael Brown Attacked Police Officer Because He Was 'Hyped Up On Marijuana'

For the last few days, Bryan Fischer has been hard at work crafting the narrative that Michael Brown was a "menacing" giant who was justifiably shot and killed while assaulting Ferguson, Missouri police officer Darren Wilson.

On his radio program today, Fischer sought to bolster this narrative by citing a few new bits of recently released information, such as the report that Brown was shot six times in his front and had marijuana in his system, claiming that this proves that Brown was "tanked up" on pot, which made him go berserk and attack the police officer.

"We know now he did have marijuana in his system," Fischer explained, "and we've had stories, remember, we've had stories from Colorado, people going berserk on marijuana and killing people, hyped up on marijuana. So it's more dangerous than people think":

Bryan Fischer Says Black Community Must Be Outraged That Obama 'Just Doesn't Seem To Care' About Them

When President Obama dared to share this thoughts and concerns following events like the arrest of Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates or the murder of Trayvon Martin, the near universal response from the Right was to blast him for supposedly forcing himself into the situation and exacerbating racial tensions.

But in the case of the situation in Ferguson, Missouri, the response from the Right seems to be to blast Obama for not having spoken out sooner and more forcefully, with Bryan Fischer declaring today that Obama seems to think that his presidency is nothing more than a game of "Sim City" in which he doesn't care about the people who are hurt by his complete and utter disinterest because there is not an ounce of humanity within him.

The black community, Fischer asserted, must be especially disgusted that Obama "just doesn't seem to care" about them.

"Here's the first black president," he said, "the black community had so much hope. A post-racial president, he's going to heal all of these racial divisions. Here is a black president who seems blissfully unconcerned that a largely black community is going up in flames. He has to be dragged to the podium after three days and riots to say a word about the situation. And so it would seem to me that they would have a hard time not thinking, look, this is a president, despite his skin color, despite the fact that he may identify with us ethnically, he just doesn't seem to care":

AFA Official Agrees With Caller Who Wants Red States To Secede From America

American Family Association news director Fred Jackson served as the guest host for “Sandy Rios in the Morning” this week, and used the opportunity to agree with a caller who said that “red states” should leave the United States.

The caller, who identified himself as a member of the radical group Oath Keepers, said secession is “the only solution that we have because voting doesn’t work,” calling for red states specifically to separate from the union. He also didn’t miss a chance to call Obama a Muslim: “And I would make a comment about the ISIS spokesman who said that they wanted to raise the flag of Allah over the White House, my personal opinion: it was raised six years ago.”

Jackson said the caller actually had a good idea, only regretting that not enough Americans have the drive to secede.

“James, your suggestion is a good one and I’m hearing what you’re saying. But I’m wondering if there is enough gumption to do that given the fact that this country re-elected President Barack Obama in 2012,” Jackson responded. “So if you can’t get people to go out and vote for someone who is opposed to the policies of the existing politician in power, do you think there’s really a chance that they are actually going to say, ‘well I won’t take the time to go out and vote but yeah let’s go ahead and secede from the nation’?”

“I’m not trying to be critical of your suggestion, I am just wondering if there is the heart of the American people yet, and I say yet because I don’t think that we should ever give up. I think sometimes a country has to hit a wall before they realize that there is something that we must do. I’m not sure enough Americans have realized that we are about to hit that wall.”

AFA: Archie Is Destroying America's Youth

Tim Wildmon and Ed Vitagliano of the American Family Association are upset about the direction of Archie Comics, and spoke with Religious Right pundit Larry Tomczak on today’s edition of “Today’s Issues” about how Archie is corrupting young people with messages promoting “the occult and homosexuality.”

Tomczak described how in a recent issue Archie dies while taking a bullet for his gay friend, something Wildmon apparently found hilarious as he cracked up while Tomczek detailed the plot.

“I know I sound like an old crank but when kids grow up being fed lies, why should we surprised if they believe lies? Why should we be surprised if they say there is nothing wrong with same-sex marriage?” Vitagliano said. “These kids grew up watching their parents laugh at Will & Grace, which changed people’s opinions, and now the kids don’t have a problem with it.”

Bryan Fischer Agrees With ISIS That Yazidis Are Devil Worshipers And That's Why Obama Defends Them

American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer is outraged that the U.S. is intervening in Iraq to stop ISIS, who has been attacking Christians and other Muslims throughout the country.

Fischer believes that President Obama only intervened to stop the extermination of the Yazidis, who practice an ancient religion yet are considered by ISIS fighters and others to be “devil worshipers.” He began today’s edition of “Focal Point” by railing against Obama, saying the president only decided to launch airstrikes in Iraq in order to defend “devil worshipers.”

“They go after devil worshipers and all of the sudden the entire weight of the United States government is sent in there to relieve them and to avenge them,” he said. “Those are the Yazidis.”

Fischer added: “President Obama will fight for Satan worshipers but he will not fight for Christians.”

“In a rare point of theological accord, both Muslims and Christians agree that the archangel revered by the Yazidis is in fact the Prince of Darkness,” he writes in his column today. “The New Testament describes him this way, “Satan (who) disguises himself as an angel of light” (2 Cor. 11:14), eager to deceive the gullible into believing that he is good rather than evil. The Yazidis have fallen for his lies.”

The persecution of Christians and other minorities in Iraq began long before Obama took office, and Fischer relayed other right-wing myths about the Obama administration supposedly refusing to help people like pastor Saeed Abedini and Meriam Ibrahim.

The Christian Science Monitor explains:

Ethnically Kurds, the Yazidis' faith combines elements of Zoroastrianismfrom ancient Persia, Sufi Islam, Judaism and Christianity along with beliefs from ancient Mesopotamia. It’s a closed and still secretive religion – members have to be born into the faith and cannot marry outside of it.

Yazidis believe that God entrusted the world to seven angels – the chief angel known in earthly form as the peacock angel who refused to bow down before Adam. While Yazidis see it as proof of his devotion to God, the narrative’s parallels with the fallen angel have led some Muslims to accuse them of devil worship.

Bryan Fischer: Obama And Holder Are Racists, And Anyone Who Calls Someone A Racist Is A Liar

Within one minute today, American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer slammed President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder as “racists” … and then said that anyone who uses terms like “racist” in politics are desperately “calling people names,” engaging in “gutter” politics and “don’t have an argument.”

Speaking on his “Focal Point” radio program today, Fischer said Obama has become an unfettered tyrant who, along with Holder, has created a racist Justice Department:

He’s got an activist attorney general, Eric Holder, who said, ‘Look, I’m an activist attorney general. I make no bones about that; I am proud to be identified as an activist attorney general. I am not going to prosecute a single case where a white person is the victim. If a white person is the victim I don’t care if they get justice, that’s no concern of mine. The only cases I am going to prosecute are where blacks are the victims. That makes him a racist…. Martin Luther King lost his life campaigning against that racist attitude.

He then shifted gears to attack Juan Williams for his recent remarks that the people advocating for Obama’s impeachment are “a white, older group of people” and minorities “see it as an attack on the first black president.”

Fischer, a supporter of impeachment, was disgusted that Williams would dare to mention race:

I thought Juan Williams was better than this. It is just disappointing to me to see him slide into the gutter of playing the race card because that is the card you play when you are out of ammunition, when you don’t have an argument, when the truth is not on your side, when the facts are not on your side, when logic is not on your side, when the Constitution is not on your side, when the law is not on your side, that is when you start accusing people and calling people names. It is very disappointing to me to see Juan Williams stoop to this level.
