Fischer: Obamacare Is A 'Disaster Of Historic Proportions' Representing The 'Death Throes Of Socialism'

We already know that Bryan Fischer has a pretty active political imagination, dreaming up scenarios in which Democrats might decide to impeach President Obama in order to win re-election in 2014.

On his program yesterday, Fischer returned to fantasy land in order to declare Obamacare is such a monumental disaster that, a hundred years from now, people will study this time in American history as the moment when socialism finally died.

"Obamacare is catastrophic, it is cataclysmic," Fischer said. "I've said this before, I'll say it again: it is not fixable, this thing is an utter, absolute, complete disaster of historic proportions. Ladies and gentlemen, you are living through American history. I want you to understand the significance of this. You are a living witness of American history. You are living through something that people will be writing about a hundred years from now and that is the time period in American history when socialism exploded, when it imploded, when it became evident to every thinking American that socialism does not work, it cannot work, it is impossible to work, nobody can make it work. We are witnessing the death throes of socialism and you are witnessing that":

We hope this is true, primarily because we are just getting tired of hearing the Right reflexively declare that everything they don't like is "socialism."

Of course, Fischer does not have a very good track record of making predictions, so we won't hold our breath.

Fischer: Muslim Prayer Rooms On Christian Campuses Are 'Idolatrous Temples'

On his radio program today, Bryan Fischer discussed a report that a few Christian colleges in the United States had built Muslim prayer rooms on campus.  Fischer was, of course, predictably disturbed by the fact that these colleges were willingly building "idolatrous temples" through which people could worship "a counterfeit god."

"These are basically idolatrous temples," Fischer said. "You set up a prayer room for Muslims, they are praying to a counterfeit god, they are praying to a false god. It's no different in the days of Judah and Israel when they set up temples to Baal and altars to Baal, it is exactly the same thing and we know exactly what God thought about all that":

Fischer: 'The Next Domino To Fall Is Going To Be Pedophilia'

On his radio program today, Bryan Fischer pointed to a recent ABC News report entitled "Polyamory: The End of Marriage?" to proclaim that, just as anti-gay activists predicted, the world was heading toward legalizing polygamy and inevitably pedophilia.

ABC has been running these sorts of sensational stories for years,  but Fischer seized upon this recent piece as proof that once marriage is no longer confined to one man and one woman, then "there's no logical place to stop in the kinds of sexual relationships that you will support, you will endorse, you will embrace as a culture."

When anti-gay activists warned that gay marriage would lead to polygamy, Fischer said that everybody laughed at them, but now they have been proven right!

"We were exactly right," Fischer said, "when we said polygamy was the next domino to fall. And after this, the next domino to fall is going to be pedophilia. They're saying the same things to us now, you're exaggerating, but we were right and we'll be proven right":

Fischer: The Constitution Give States The Right To Outlaw Islam

Inspired by reports that the African nation of Angola had outlawed the religion of Islam and begun dismantling mosques, Bryan Fischer called for similar steps to be taken in America.

Though the claims turned out to be false, Fischer said on his radio program yesterday that under the Constitution as it was originally written, individual states have the freedom and power to declare Islam to be illegal and prohibit Muslims from practicing it or building mosques.

"Angola has made Islam illegal in the country," Fischer said, "and they are dismantling mosques. Mosques are illegal and they are dismantling the mosques that already exist; they're taking them down ... And you ask yourself the question, well, can we do that here? Could we do that in the United States? Could we make Islam illegal, could we prohibit the building of mosques, and the answer is yes!"

Fischer: God Will Curse America For Making A Deal With Iran

Over the weekend, the United States, France, Germany, Britain, China and Russia collectively reached a deal with Iran in which Iran agreed to curb its nuclear program in exchange for a loosening of sanctions against the nation.

Israel is not happy with the agreement, which means that Bryan Fischer is not happy with it either because God will now curse America since it has dishonored the descendants of Abraham.

"The main reason that we ought to stand with Israel," Fischer explained, "is because God does. We, as a Christian nation, ought to stand with Israel because God does."

Citing God's promise to Abraham in the Bible that anyone who honored Abraham would be honored by God while anyone who dishonored Abraham would be cursed by God, Fischer asked "now what did Barack Obama and John Kerry just do to Israel? They just dishonored Israel; they just dishonored the descendents of Abraham ... If we bless Israel, God will bless us. If we dishonor Israel, God will withdraw his blessing from us and replace that with a curse":

Fischer: Obama 'Is A Christophobic Bigot'

As we noted yesterday, the entire Religious Right movement is in the process of freaking out over the fact that President Obama read a version of The Gettysburg Address that did not include the phrase "under God."  The simple fact that Obama was asked to read that specific version by documentary filmmaker Ken Burns does not, according to the Right, in any way absolve him of this grave sin, with Liberty Counsel fuming that "he has certainly failed to acknowledge God and Biblical values throughout his presidency" and Gary Bauer declaring that "God is not amused."

Most furious of all is Bryan Fischer who insists that Obama deliberately read the version that did not include "under God" because he is a "Christophobic bigot."

Obama as "deliberately insulted the faith of 300 million Americans," Fischer said. "There's no way this was not deliberate and intentional. So, to me, this is just more evidence of President Obama's anti-Christian bigotry. He is a Christophobic bigot; he has an intolerance, he has a dislike, he has an animus for Christianity":

  • Bryan Fischer says it is okay for Christians to ask God to punish their enemies.
  • Peter LaBarbera stands by Liz Cheney: "We who have God and truth on our side act like we're somehow wrong. Meanwhile, the forces of evil, those who are fighting for a sin movement act, like they have truth on their side. Shame on us for not behaving like we have truth on our side."
  • According to Erik Rush's website, several high-ranking military officers were removed from their positions in recent weeks for stopping President Obama from detonating three nuclear weapons that would have killed 90% of the US population.
  • How is it possible that racist black nationalist Ayo Kimathi has still not been fired from his government job?
  • Finally, we wish that people who gush about the "private" Glenn Beck would explain how that one is supposedly so amazingly different than the public one and why is should make us see his lunatic rantings in a different light.

Fischer: Mary Cheney Is An 'Intolerant Lesbian Bigot'

Back when Liz Cheney announced her intention to challenge Wyoming Senator Mike Enzi in the Republican primary, Bryan Fischer declared that Cheney was not a patriot because she was insufficiently anti-gay and had, in fact, been compromised because her sister Mary is a lesbian.

But now that Mary and Liz are publicly feuding over Liz's opposition to marriage equality, Fischer has come rushing to her defense, declaring that Liz is the paragon of Christian tolerance while Mary is an "intolerant lesbian bigot."

"It's very clear here that Liz Cheney is not the intolerant bigot," Fischer said, "it is Liz Cheney's sister who is, in fact, the intolerant bigot."

'Swallowed By Satan': The Case Of The Demon Discharge

Warning: This post contains graphic language.

Yesterday, Bryan Fischer brought Joseph Sciambra onto Focal Point to discuss Sciambra’s new book, Swallowed By Satan, which is a tale of his journey out of homosexuality, neo-Nazism, and Satan worship. Like other ex-gay activists, Sciambra offers harrowing accounts of early sexual trauma, drug abuse and risky sexual behaviors, including public sex and flashing men.

While Sciambra says he identified as gay, he also claims he was obsessed with female pornography (describing it as a “succubus”) and regularly frequented female sex workers and brothels. Sciambra explains that he began to sleep with men because “women did not have the physical strength for the type of abuse I needed,” and as a result he fell into Satan’s digestive tract until “my continued presence in his bowel became an irritant [and] I was passed out”:

Satan swallowed me whole. I would spend a decade in his gut. Miraculously, a protective layer prevented my full destruction in the digestive tract of the devil. When my continued presence in his bowel became an irritant, I was passed out onto the street. To be stepped upon and washed away into the gutter.

Much of the book is dedicated to graphic accounts of Sciambra having brutal sex with other men; he claims that he hears different voices, which he seems to think are demonic spirits, that tell him to engage in activities such as sadomasochism and pornography. He even writes about having sex with demonic figures.

In one story, he goes to a club to get “gang-banged” and during sex “conceives” a demon in his anus. After sex, the demon “gushed from my body” in his discharge and “would grow and pitilessly hover about me. Sometimes, it spoke.”

All I could think about were the magical claims by [occultist] Alester Crowley that anal sex unleashed a rare form of demonic spirit. In fact, he taught that these devils would be conceived within the anus during sodomy. I believed this wholeheartedly. I wanted these entities to take me over.... Then, with no warning, a rush of liquid gushed from my body. It was slimy and mixed with blood. I gave birth to the devil I prayed for. In the coming years, it would grow and pitilessly hover about me. Sometimes, it spoke.

He warns readers that he opened himself up to occult practices by innocently using a Ouija board as a child and contends that part of homosexuality is a “pseudo-religion [that is] certainly Satanic.”

The voices in his head told him to “debase” himself through sex in order to get closer to Satan: “[I]n my debasement, I received a congratulatory elevation from the devil. I was doing his work. My pain was only alleviated in evil.”

“I think my further descent into hell started with an occult sex ritual that I engaged in” with “a gay cabal of male witches,” where he had group sex with a man with “the head of a goat or ram.”

“I knew that what I would be drinking upon was the darkness of hell,” Sciambra writes while describing a different account of sadomasochistic group sex. “They had prepared my walking remains for the final immolation. I was on the altar, the knife was raised, and I was ready to go.”

Finally, injured by all the group sex, Sciambra went to the hospital with his mom and he saw demons appear over his hospital bed: “Then, a huge empty space opened up behind the bed’s headboard. An immense open and salivating mouth breathed a stinking and moist heat upon the back of my neck. I was being pulled up and outwards. I heard a voice say, ‘Open-wide.’”

  • Hawaii has become the latest state in which marriage equality is now the law.
  • Liberty Counsel says it will file an appeal against the law banning "ex-gay" therapy for minors in New Jersey after a court tossed out its lawsuit.
  • Didn't Jesus drink wine
  • Religious Right activists are hosting a symposium addressing the question: "Family Policy Lessons from Other Lands: What Should America Learn?" As in, what can we learn from Russia's crackdown on gays that can be applied here.
  • Finally, Bryan Fischer continues to insist that Christmas is found in the Constitution: "By dating the foundational document of the greatest nation in history to the birth of Jesus Christ, the Founders essentially celebrated Christmas as they signed their names. Since the Declaration was also dated from the first Christmas, you can even say that the two most important political documents in history are in the nature of Christmas cards from the Founders to us."

Former Gay-Satanist-Nazi Was 'Swallowed By Satan' But Now Straight Pal Of Bryan Fischer

Joseph Sciambra is the author of a book called Swallowed by Satan, which depicts his life as a pornographic film actor, Satanist and neo-Nazi…until he became straight and left it all behind.

Sciambra’s YouTube page includes a biopic, “Death in Room #122,” and video commentaries such as, “How to Stop Masturbating,” “Gay Marriage: A Satanic Ceremony” and “Former Gay Porn Star Tells of His Possession by Demons and Deliverance from Satan” (Parts 1-5).

Seeing that Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association frequently claims that gay people are Nazis and demonic, it is not a surprise that Fischer read Sciambra’s book and invited him onto his show today to discuss the typical gay life…of a gay Nazi Satanist porn actor.

Fischer said Sciambra was “devoured by the Prince of Darkness” when he “entered the homosexual lifestyle,” which Sciambra described as a “scary” experience.

“Part of the lie of Satan is to use the media and other voices to try to convinced people that homosexuality, homosexual conduct is some sort of benign alternative to heterosexuality, ” Fischer said. “If somebody believes that lie and begins to act on that lie, that homosexuality is something normal and a healthy alternative to heterosexuality, they are really opening themselves up to some very dark and dangerous powers.”

Sciambra advised kids against coming out as gay, warning that they “have no idea what’s waiting for them.”

Later, he urged gay people to “stop the silliness, stop the lies and stop the deception because how high does the body count have to get before we will admit that the gay lifestyle has been a disaster?”

Fischer Can't Support Chris Christie Because He Appointed Gays And Muslims As Judges

On his radio broadcast today, Bryan Fischer told a caller that he had serious reservations about New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and could not vote for him if he ran for president.

Not only is Fischer concerned that Christie has "capitulated on same-sex marriage, capitulated on the homosexual agenda" but he's also "concerned about his judicial appointments."

And why is Fischer concerned about this issue?  Because, as governor, Christie "has appointed active homosexuals to be bench" and even "appointed Muslims to the bench":

Fischer: Gay Activists Are Trying To 'Desensitize' People To Pedophilia, Just As They Did With Homosexuality

Last week, Bryan Fischer appeared on theDoveTV to promote the bogus AFA claim that the American Psychiatric Association had reclassified pedophilia as a sexual orientation.  During the interview, host Perry Atkinson asserted that it was all part of an effort to desensitize people to the issue of pedophilia in order to normalize it ... just as they did with homosexuality, Fischer responded.

"That's exactly the strategy that homosexual activists pursued with homosexuality," Fischer said. "Talk about homosexuality all the time; don't let people think about the behavior itself because that will turn people off, but just talk about it all the time, get it into ordinary conversation, use that term over and over again because it desensitizes people to it.  If they hear it often enough then, like you're saying, they begin to think of it like something, well that's just a normal part of conversation and then it's not long before they start thinking well, that's a normal behavior, that's a normal sexual orientation. So it's very deliberate on their part to kind of desensitize the American public on this issue":

Fischer: Love Your Gay Child By Telling Them They Are Going Down 'A Road Of Destruction And Death'

After televangelist Pat Robertson gave “advice” to a parent of a gay son, Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association was asked today by a caller what he would do if one of his children came out as gay. Fischer said that he would “love them unconditionally” and would not “toss them out of my life;” however, he would tell them that being gay is a “decision that is self-destructive.”

“I would love them unconditionally; I would appeal to them to make different choices with their sexuality; I would appeal to them not to go down that road because it’s a road of destruction and death but I would love them unconditionally.”

Fischer's Fantasies: Democrats Might Impeach Obama In Order To Win Re-Election In 2014

On his radio broadcast today, Bryan Fischer said that even though there are countless reasons for Congress to impeach and remove President Obama from office, it won't happen because Democrats in the Senate will never go along with it ... unless, he speculated, they realize that Obamacare is dragging the entire party "to the bottom of the sea bed."

"What matters to them in November of 2014 is getting re-elected," Fischer stated. "If they begin to think that President Obama represents a liability, that he could actually precipitate this massive, catastrophic defeat for them at the polls, they might be motivated to try to do something about that. We have got to remove this guy from office; we've either got to repeal Obamacare; if he won't go along with that, then we just may have to clean the slate for him":

Paranoia-Rama: This Week In Right-Wing Lunacy - 11/8/13

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

This week, we learn more about President Obama’s secret gay past and Michelle Obama’s poor spiritual housekeeping, find out the real reason for Terry McAuliffe’s victory in Virginia, and are duly warned about the consequences of health care coverage and U.N. treaties.

5. Obamacare Will Force People to “Suffer and Potentially Die”

Texas Rep. Louis Gohmert, one of Congress’ most creative conspiracy theorists, told the residents of a nursing home in Texas this week that the Affordable Care Act would cut Medicare benefits, causing people to “suffer and potentially die.”

Gohmert’s claim that the ACA “cut $716 billion from Medicare,” repeated frequently by Mitt Romney in his presidential campaign last year, glosses over the fact that the cuts in costs – also recommended by Rep. Paul Ryan – would not affect Medicare benefits.

4. The United Nations Will Snatch Homeschoolers and Kids With Glasses

The Senate Foreign Relations Committee revived consideration of the United Nations Conventions on Persons With Disabilities this week, a year after a right-wing scare campaign managed to prevent the Senate from ratifying the treaty.

Taking the lead in the effort to sink the treaty was Michael Farris, director of the Home School Legal Defense Association, who claimed that U.S. ratification of the treaty would allow the U.N. to “get control” of children with glasses or ADHD and even lead to the deaths of children with disabilities. Invited to testify at this week’s hearing, Farris tried to convince senators that ratifying the treaty – which is based on laws already in place in the United States – would in fact lead to an American ban homeschooling. His only evidence for this fear was a completely unrelated immigration case .

The many right-wing conspiracy theories about the CRPD have been handily debunked by the U.S. International Council on Disabilities, as well as by former Republican senators Bill Frist and Bob Dole.

3. Michelle Obama Invited Demons Into The White House

The American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer was shocked to learn that First Lady Michelle Obama hosted a White House event this to celebrate Diwali.

By celebrating the Hindu festival, Fischer warned, the first lady was inviting “demons into the White House,” necessitating a “spiritual cleanse” of the building after Obama leaves office.

Fischer neglected to mention that George W. and Laura Bush had hosted the very same event. He did, however, later in the week provide a helpful how-to on how to rid a home of demonic spirits in case it ever comes to that.

2. Voter Fraud Won the Election in Virginia

Virginia attorney general Ken Cuccinelli thinks that President Obama won reelection through organized voter fraud , so it’s no surprise that some of his supporters were ready to cry “voter fraud” when he lost the gubernatorial election on Tuesday to Democrat Terry McAuliffe.

A full week before election day, Virginia conservative commentator Dean Chambers laid out how he predicted McAuliffe would “steal” the election through voter fraud. Meanwhile, Liberty Counsel’s Matt Barber spent Election Day tweeting about how Cuccinelli would need to win by 7 points “to get within the margin of Democrat fraud.” And after the results came in, the white nationalist site VDARE claimed that McAuliffe must have relied on “black voter fraud” because it was not “plausible” that African-Americans would “turn out for New York Irish American Pol running for Governor with the same enthusiasm that they voted for a Black for President.”

In 2008, Virginia officials prosecuted 39 cases of voter fraud out of 3.7 million votes cast, none of which involved voter impersonation, the alleged target of Virginia’s pending voter ID law.

1. Obama Procured Cocaine Through Older White, Male Lovers

We already knew that during his student days President Obama was married to his male Pakistani roommate, the union from which he still wears a secret gay Muslim wedding ring , but we learned today via anti-gay activist Scott Lively that the president’s secrets go much deeper.

Lively linked on his website to an interview between crackpot preacher James David Manning and a woman named Mia Marie Pope, who claims to have been a classmate of President Obama's back in Hawaii in the 1970s.

Pope recalled how the future president was “very much within sort of the gay community” and “was having sex with these older white guys” in order to procure “cocaine to be able to freebase.”

Fischer: Ban Homosexuality As 'A Hazard To Human Health'

Today, the FDA announced that it was taking steps toward eventually eliminating the use of trans fats in the United States, saying their use "remains a significant public health concern."

So, of course, Bryan Fischer seized on this announcement to declare that, if they were being consistent, the government would "ban homosexuality [because] it is a hazard to human health":

Fischer Explains How To Exorcise Your New Home To Rid It Of Demonic Spirits

Lately, Bryan Fischer's "Focal Point" radio program has started to look more and more like Pat Robertson's "700 Club" as Fischer has begun offering advice to his listeners on how to properly exorcise their new homes in order to rid them of any demonic spirits that may have been invited in by the previous inhabitants.

"You have no idea what was honored in that home," Fischer explained, "what was done in that home, the kind of values that were exemplified in the behavior of the people in that home, no idea what was honored in that place, what was watched on television, the kind of music that was played and filled the atmosphere in that home and how access or legal ground to dark spirits may have been given by the prior occupants of that house."

As such, Fischer recommends that his listeners walk the perimeter of their property, anointing the corners with oil and vocally commanding all demonic spirits to leave before likewise anointing the house and praying in every room and even over the furniture and appliances in order to rid the house of all unwelcome spirits:

Fischer: Obama 'Certainly Does Not Love America; I Believe He Actually Hates America'

As we have said before, some day America will have a Republican president again and when that day comes, Religious Right leaders will respond furiously to any comment that they feel is offensive and disrespectful to the President of the United States and the office of the presidency.

And when that day arrives, we will just be able to trot out video after video of people like Bryan Fischer saying things like "I believe that we have a president who has a visceral dislike for this country. I do not believe he likes America; he certainly does not love America. I believe he actually hates America as it was founded":
