Fischer: Obama Uneasy About Afghanistan Because 'His Sympathies Are With The Islamic Faith'

Over the last few days, Bryan Fischer has dedicated several segments of his radio show to discussing the claims made by former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates in his new book, especially Gates' assertion that President Obama had serious doubts about the strategy his administration was pursuing in Afghanistan.

On his show today, Fischer speculated that Obama's doubts were rooted in the fact that Obama is "disparaging of Christianity" because "his sympathies are with the Islamic faith." As such, Obama didn't want to send US troops into Afghanistan "because they were going to be killing Muslims"

Right Wing Leftovers - 1/7/14

  • For $25, you can get a signed copy of Todd Starnes' forthcoming book, "God Less America: Real Stories From the Front Lines of the Attack on Traditional Values."
  • Speaking of Starnes, he doesn't seem to be available for comment in response to allegations that he is a liar.
  • We have no idea what this means: "I was saying it before the 2010 off-year elections, and I’ve been saying it since same. The ability to stop the transmogrification of our great nation into a socialist state where we are lorded over by Fabianistic, Neo-Leninist Mensheviks who are the equivalent of toxic pathogens intent on subjugating the minds and behavior of our populace lies with We the People."
  • Bryan Fischer thinks that a soldier suffering from PTSD might be the victim of demonic attacks sent out by a satanic coven.
  • The Freepers are turning on Glenn Beck.
  • Finally, the Government Is Not God PAC is not happy that the Obama administration cares about gay rights: "The Obama Administration seems determined to use its foreign policy influence to accomplish two objectives: Make the world safe for Islam and for sodomy, homosexuals, bisexuals, cross-dressers, transsexuals, drag queens and she-males. Is this really the purpose of American foreign policy?"

Fischer: 'Duck Dynasty' Controversy Proves 'We Are The Mainstream'

On his radio broadcast yesterday, Bryan Fischer spoke with a caller about the "Duck Dynasty" controversy and declared that the main lesson of the entire thing is that the views put forth by Phil Robertson and, by extension, Fischer and his audience, are widely shared by the vast majority of Americans.

"One of the take-aways of that whole episode," Fischer said, "is that Phil Robertson and the American people like you and me that agree with him, that we are the mainstream. It's the gay activists, it's the gay lobby, they're the ones that are on the fringe ... [The 'Duck Dynasty' cast] represent the values that you and I and the great majority of Americans share":

Fischer: People Who Believe In Evolution Are 'Disqualified From Holding Political Office In The United States Of America'

Bryan Fischer returned to his radio broadcast today where he dedicated his first topic segment to explaining that no person who believes in evolution ought to ever be elected to public office.

"We don't share ancestors with apes and baboons," he proclaimed. "In fact, I would suggest to you that if a politician, if somebody wants to exercise political power and he is an evolutionist, he is disqualified from holding political office in the United States of America."

Fischer went on to clarify that he doesn't think there ought to be a law banning people who believe in evolution from holding office, merely that "that American people shouldn't vote for them because that guy, if he does not believe that we are created beings and that our rights come to us from God, that man cannot be trusted to protect your civil rights":

Right Wing Leftovers - 12/20/13

  • A federal judge in Utah has struck down the state’s ban on same-sex marriage.
  • On a semi-related note, anti-gay marriage activists believe that they will eventually win this fight: "This may take us years, but in the same way Roe v Wade looked utterly hopeless when it was put forward. But we see now today that the majority of Americans are now pro-life."
  • Glenn Beck's political insights are quite remarkable.
  • While ostensibly complaining about Phil Robertson's suspension, Breitbart's John Nolte says "bundled cable is the root of too many political and cultural evils to count."
  • Bryan Fischer sees the "Duck Dynasty" controversy as a turning point in human history: "Phil Robertson has created a moment of historic opportunity for evangelicals and social conservatives to reverse our cultural slide into sexual deviancy and begin turning our ship of state back toward sexual normalcy."

Fischer: Phil Robertson's Suspension Is 'The Mark Of The Beast'

Just in case the Religious Right's response to the "Duck Dynasty" controversy has not already been ridiculously over-the-top enough, Bryan Fischer decided to officially turn into a total farce by declaring on his radio broadcast today that Robertson's suspension is literally "the Mark of the Beast":

Uganda Passes Anti-Gay Bill Cheered By US Conservatives

An anti-gay law championed by evangelical Christians in Uganda with the enthusiastic backing of Religious Right leaders in the U.S. has passed parliament and is awaiting the president’s decision on whether to sign it.  The bill as passed apparently no longer includes the death penalty provision but makes homosexuality a crime punishable by life in prison. LGBT activist Frank Mugisha says his colleagues are panicking, fearing that “there is going to be a hunt.”

Martin Ssempa, a Ugandan minister who has pushed the bill for years, and has been praised by Religious Right leaders like Matt Barber for his strident anti-gay stance, tweeted “Let Freedom Ring!” and posted a celebratory picture of himself with David Bahati, the bill’s sponsor.

Ssempa got plenty of help from American Religious Right figures like Lou Engle and Scott Lively, who is facing a human rights lawsuit brought by Sexual Minorities of Uganda. “This human rights crisis was made here in the United States,” says Tarso Luís Ramos, Executive Director at Political Research Associates.

Given that American Religious Right figures had praised the bill in its even more draconian form – Tony Perkins called it an effort to “uphold moral conduct” – it is sadly unsurprising to see some of them cheering.  American Family Association hatemonger Bryan Fischer connected the law’s passage to the controversy in America over Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson. Fischer tweeted:

So much for “live and let live.” 

Paranoia-Rama: War On Christmas Hoax, Obama's Gay Revenge & The Plot To Nuke Charleston

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

Apparently, we here at Right Wing Watch are receiving secret information on the American public courtesy of the NSA. This week we learned top-secret details about the War on Christmas, along with the Obama administration’s false flag attacks and plan to nuke South Carolina. It’s all here in this week’s Paranoia-Rama:

5. Student Suspended For Saying ‘Merry Christmas’?

The National Report strikes again! An article from the satirical site about a San Francisco school suspending a nine-year-old student for wishing a “Merry Christmas” to an atheist teacher went viral this week, enraging War on Christmas belligerents. A real school with a similar name to the fictional school mnamed in the National Report’s spoof has been inundated with nasty calls and violent threats from angry people across the country who didn’t realize the article was a hoax.

Judging by the source, we wouldn’t be surprised if the story eventually gets a mention on Fox & Friends.

4. Indian Diplomat’s Arrest A Gay Plot

Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association believes that last week’s controversial arrest of an Indian diplomat in New York occurred not because of the diplomat’s alleged mistreatment of her housekeeper but as “payback” for an Indian supreme court decision recriminalizing homosexuality. “I think there is one simple reason: This is payback by President Obama because a week ago the supreme court in the country of India reinstated a law that bans homosexual sex, it criminalizes homosexual conduct,” Fischer said.

Legal disputes between the diplomat and her former maid have been going on for months and Secretary of State John Kerry expressed regret over the incident, but since Fischer is absolutely obsessed with gay issues it’s not like he needs any evidence to substantiate his case.

3. Obama Will Use NSA To Leak Information To Liberal Groups

Larry Klayman, the conservative attorney who successfully challenged the NSA’s domestic surveillance programs, seems convinced that President Obama will leak information collected by the NSA to progressive organizations, including us (even though our parent organization, People For the American Way, is part of a separate legal challenge to the NSA).

Klayman believes this is part of a plan “to destroy conservatives, libertarians, people of faith and anyone else who believes in true freedom” that will concentrate power in the hands of Obama’s “wildly ultra-leftist, atheist, anti-Judeo-Christian, anti-white and Muslim benefactors, supporters and friends.”

2. About That Guy Who Stopped Obama From Nuking Charleston…

As we’ve been reporting, conservative activist Jim Garrow is insistent that three military officials dealing with nuclear arms were fired because they stopped President Obama’s plan to nuke Charleston, South Carolina. Yesterday, the Washington Post ran a report on the actual reasons the one of the generals responsible for nuclear weapons was fired, including his excessive drinking and misbehavior.

Not that any of Garrow’s followers know or care, as we expect Garrow — who recently predicted the emergence of an anti-Obama “guerrilla war” — to continue to claim that the general was a great hero who saved America from a malicious Obama-Soros scheme.

1. Obama’s ‘False Flag’ Actress?

Leave it to Erik Rush to promote a bizarre blog post from a fringe right-wing website about how young women photographed crying at the scenes of the Aurora and Sandy Hook shootings and the Boston Marathon Bombing look similar, and therefore must be the same woman and an actress paid by President Obama.

The website, Moral Matters, says that the photos are proof that Obama is staging the violent events in order to distract from his “criminal scandals and his criminal ID fraud,” bolster gun control efforts and gut the Second Amendment. We wonder if Erik Rush will discuss this conspiracy theory the next time Fox News invites him on air.

Fischer: 'What We Need Is About A Hundred And Fifty Million Phil Robertsons'

It is no surprise that professional anti-gay bigot Bryan Fischer has come out in support of "Duck Dynasty's" Phil Robertson, defending the anti-gay comments that got Robertson suspended from the show.

In fact, on his broadcast yesterday, Fischer called upon conservative Christians all over the nation to follow Robertson's example and speak "biblical truth about sexuality and marriage" in "every circumstance, every situation, every conversation."

Saying that the entire controversy is rooted in the "spiritual warfare" that Satan is waging on humanity over the issue of homosexuality, Fischer declared that the only way to fight back is to "continue to speak the truth," which is why everyone ought to emulate Robertson every chance they get.

"What we need is about a hundred and fifty million Phil Robertsons out there," he said:

Fischer: Arrest Of Indian Diplomat Is 'Payback' For Recent Anti-Gay Ruling

On his radio broadcast yesterday, Bryan Fischer discussed the case Indian diplomat who was arrested last week on charges of visa fraud and underpaying her nanny, which Fischer is not buying at all since he knows that this diplomat was really arrested because President Obama is trying to pay India back for the recent Supreme Court ruling outlawing gay sex.

Fischer, a vocal supporter of the Indian law, said the arrest of the diplomat was nothing more than "payback" to the nation of India for the ruling.

"I mean, could you be any more obvious about retaliation or payback," Fischer said, before going on to blast Obama for naming openly gay athletes as part of the official presidential delegation to the Winter Olympics, saying it was an intentional "thumb in the eye" to Russia.

"It's just insulting":

Right Wing Leftovers - 12/16/13

Mike Huckabee is reportedly going to let God decide if he should run for president. How much do you want to bet the God tells him to run? Obviously, the cause of all these school shootings is lack of proper faith in God:

Bryan Fischer Is Just Trying To Save Our Souls

Bryan Fischer continued his reading from the Book of Revelation on his radio program today and when he came to a passage warning that those who "worship the beast" will spend eternity in torment, he took a moment to kindly address us and our readers directly, pleading with us to accept Christ in order to avoid this punishment.

Fischer: 'I Am The Truth Detector'

The Bible says that Satan's only tool is the lie, but fortunately God has put Bryan Fischer on earth to serve as a beacon of truth: "I am the truth detector. I am the truth promoter."

Fischer Hails India Supreme Court Ruling Outlawing Gay Sex: 'This Is Entirely Right And Entirely Appropriate'

Yesterday, the Supreme Court of India reinstated a law dating back to the 1860s which mandates that anyone who "voluntarily has carnal intercourse against the order of nature with any man, woman or animal" be punished by up to 10 years in prison.

This decision outlawing consensual homosexual sex was predictably hailed by Bryan Fischer who rejoiced that the ruling demonstrates that making homosexuality illegal "can be done."

"This is entirely right and entirely appropriate," Fischer said of the law. "Same-sex behavior is unnatural, it is against the order of nature: you just look at the plumbing and you can tell that, what body parts are designed for what use and you can see right away that this is contrary to nature."

"So that shows," he continued, speaking of the court ruling,"ladies and gentlemen that it can be done. It shows that this cultural trend that we're dealing with can be reversed, because for four years it was open season for homosexuals in India and now that drift away from cultural norms and moral norms, that's been reversed in the country of India ... Good law in India upheld by the Supreme Court":

Fischer: 'Our Constitution Protects The Free Exercise Of The Christian Religion'

On his radio broadcast yesterday, Bryan Fischer spent two segments laying out his argument that, when the founders of this nation used the word "religion," what they really meant was "Christianity." As such, authorities in Oklahoma have every right to reject an effort by Satanists to erect a monument outside the Oklahoma Capitol building.

Fischer: Colorado Bakery Owners Have Become Victims Of 'The Secular Inquisition'

Last week, a Colorado judge ruled that the owners of a bakery who were refusing to serve gay customers must do so or face fines. The owner is vowing to resist the ruling and Bryan Fischer voiced his support on his radio broadcast today, saying that the baker has become a victim of  "The Secular Inquisition."

"Our secular theocrats have found this man guilty of heresy," Fischer said, "guilty of idolatry, guilty of blasphemy because he will not agree to the dogma of the secular theocrats. He is a heretic and he must be punished just like the Spanish Inquisition did for those that went astray from the dogma of the church in their day."

Right Wing Leftovers - 12/9/13

  • E.W. Jackson will do what every failed Republican candidate does: launch a political action committee.
  • Richard Viguerie went to Israel and found some government minister who doesn't trust President Obama and apparently that is news or something.
  • The Sen. Ted Cruz coloring book is finally here!
  • Nice timing, Rep. Ted Yoho.
  • Finally, Bryan Fischer says that Ted Cruz's praise for Nelson Mandela has "raised more questions about Ted Cruz then probably anything he's done."

Fischer: Pot Should Be Illegal Because Its Use Violates Biblical Teaching

On his radio broadcast today, Bryan Fischer spent the better part of one segment railing against the dangers of marijuana and saying that it should never be legalized because it's use violates the teachings of the Bible.

Citing Paul's admonition in Ephesians 5:18 that believers should "not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery, but be filled with the Spirit," Fisher said marijuana should be illegal because people "are not to be under control of anything except for the Holy Spirit."

This would, of course, also apply to alcohol, which Fischer presumably thinks ought to be illegal as well ... as should hypnosis, apparently, which Fischer also warned against.

"I'm primarily opposed to marijuana use," Fischer said, "just for the same reason I'm opposed to drunkenness, same reason I'm opposed to cocaine use and heroin use: it's turning control of your humanity over to something other than God."

Fischer: Obama Should Be Impeached ... Just For Educational Purposes

On his radio broadcast today, Bryan Fischer agreed with a caller who demanded that Republicans in the House of Representatives "take a stand" and impeach President Obama even if he won't be convicted and removed by the Senate.

Fischer readily agreed, saying that even though there is no chance that Obama would actually be removed from office, House Republicans ought to go ahead and impeach him any way ... for educational purposes.

"There could be a powerful educational benefit from the House filing articles of impeachment," Fischer said, because "it would give the House the opportunity to make their case why this man needs to be removed from office ... And so they're be tremendous educational value in that; it may not go anywhere in the Senate ... but it may be time to recognize there's an educational benefit here":
