Fischer: 'If the Republican Party Comes Down for Amnesty, It's Done'

Last week, Bryan Fischer said that Republicans need to "clamp down" on immigration because Hispanics are "are socialists by nature" and tend to vote Democratic. But as leading voices in the Republican Party and conservative movement continue to work to soften the GOP's traditionally hardline approach to the issue of immigration, Fischer is warning that how the party comes down on this issue will determine whether it survives because "if the Republican Party comes down for amnesty, it's done":

When Biblical Parallels Go Too Far: Fischer Compares Libya to Uriah the Hittite

In 2 Samuel 11, the Bible tells the story of King David and his adulterous affair with Bathsheba in which she becomes pregnant.  In an effort to conceal the affair, David instructs the commander of his military to send Uriah the Hittite, Bathsheba's husband, home from war to spend time with his wife.  But when he returns, Uriah insists on staying with David in the palace and refuses to see his wife so long as his fellow soldiers are still at war.  

Seeing that his plan to conceal his adulterous relationship with Bathsheba will not work, David then instructs Joab, his military commander, to return Uriah to the front lines where the fighting is most intense and then suddenly withdraw all of his forces, leaving Uriah exposed where he will surely be killed ... and that is exactly what happens.

On Friday's radio broadcast, Bryan Fischer said that the deaths of the four Americans in Benghazi, Libya were just like what happened with Uriah the Hittite because they mistakenly thought that "President Obama cared enough about Americans citizens" to send support but instead "they were left out there to die" because of Obama's "sympathy toward Muslims":

Fischer: The 9/11 Terrorists Were 'Agents of God's Wrath'

As he traditionally does at the beginning of every radio program, Bryan Fischer dedicated the opening segment yesterday to a reading and discussion from the Bible. In this case, he was reading from Isaiah 10 in which the prophet explains that God had sent the Assyrians to invade Israel as judgment, which prompted Fischer to declare that the same thing happened to America as "the jihadists on 9/11 were the agents of God's wrath in order to get our attention as a people."

And it was a rather effective technique, Fischer explained, because ever since major league baseball games have sung "God Bless America" during the seventh-inning stretch and "one of the reasons we haven't been hit since 9/11 is that we did learn that lesson, we needs as a people to go before God and ask for his protection": 

Right Wing Leftovers - 11/15/12

  • Anita Staver explains how conservative women felt about Mitt Romney: "Romney was like the unwanted suitor at our high school prom. We danced because we didn't want to turn him down and make a scene. Our reluctance was warranted, because as we danced, he talked about his economic plan."
  • ALIPAC's William Gheen has big plans to unseat Sen. Lindsey Graham in 2014, which is interesting seeing as he's spent the last week sending out frantic emails warning that ALIPAC is on the verge of permanently shutting down.
  • Is Rick Santorum already laying the ground work for another presidential run in 2016?  We hope so! 
  • FRC is seeking donations so it can work to "prevent radical homosexual activists from making further gains in the U.S. military and placing service members and our nation at even greater risk" and "stop the Employment Non-Discrimination Act from forcing people to deny their moral convictions in the workplace."
  • Finally, it seems that Bryan Fischer is now simply trolling for attention with ridiculous segments like this:

Fischer: Anti-Islam Filmmaker was Sent to Prison for Violating Obama's 'De Facto' Blasphemy Laws

On yesterday's radio program, Bryan Fischer speculated that now that former CIA Director David Petraeus has resigned from his position following revelations that he had engaged in an extra-marital affair, he'd now be free to tell the truth about what happen in Benghazi, Libya and, by doing so, "could bring Obama presidency down." 

The real tragedy, Fischer insisted, about the whole Benghazi issue was that the "completely innocent civilian" behind the anti-Islam film that was initially blamed for setting off riots in Muslim countries has now been sent to prison for violating an "Obama de facto blasphemy law against criticizing Islam, criticizing the prophet":

Of course, the man in question was really sent back to prison for violating the terms of his probation stemming from a bank fraud conviction by "using aliases, fraudulently obtaining a California driver's license under an assumed name and lying to probation officers."

Fischer: We've Got to 'Clamp Down on Immigration' Because 'Socialist' Hispanics Vote Democratic

In the wake of last week's devastating election losses, Republican leaders and conservative activists are beginning to rethink the party's traditional hardline stance on the issue of immigration.  Sensing that the GOP can no longer win national elections by just appealing to white male voters, conservative leaders have started to suggest that taking a more moderate stance on immigration might help the party make inroads with Latino voters ... but Bryan Fischer is having none of it. 

On Friday's program, Fischer said that America never had a problem with immigration when the bulk of the immigrants came from Europe because they shared our heritage, values, and worldview. But recently, most immigration has been coming from non-European third-world countries where people do not possess the Protestant Work Ethic and expect the government to take care of them. 

In fact, said Fischer, Hispanics do not vote Democratic because of the issue of immigration but rather because "they are socialists by nature" who want open borders simply so that they can bring in their families to "benefit from the plunder of the wealth of the United States."  

As Fischer sees it, there is nothing the Republican can do to ever woo Hispanics away from the Democratic Party ... and that is "one of the reasons why we've got to clamp down on immigration": 

Sandy Rios: Gay Marriage brings about the 'Rape of Our Children's Innocence'

Sandy Rios of the American Family Association mourned the defeat of anti-gay ballot measures and candidates for office during her organization’s election coverage, and was dumbfounded as to why actor Brad Pitt donated to the marriage equality campaigns in four states. She asked: “What causes a person of such means to be so passionate about that, who is a heterosexual man with children? What is that all about?” As AFA news director Fred Jackson noted, Pitt “didn’t listen to his mom.”

Rios: Last week in the midst of the hurricane and the devastation and people clamoring for food and help, Brad Pitt made this huge donation to gay marriage. I think, what drives that? I think he gave $100,000, $25,000 to each state to fund homosexual marriage. What causes a person of such means to be so passionate about that, who is a heterosexual man with children? What is that all about?

Jackson: That is the case; he didn’t listen to his mom.

Rios: That’s for sure.

Later, Rios and AFA spokesman Bryan Fischer were stunned by Allen West’s loss in Florida, which for Fischer proves that Americans are making “alarming choices about who their leaders are going to be.” Rios lamented that voters have clearly become solidly in favor of abortion rights and gay equality, saying that voters “want abortion, they are demanding it,” and are also “clamoring for gay marriage.” She went on to argue that marriage equality will lead to “explicit instruction in public schools” and the “rape of our children’s innocence.”

Fischer: Allen West apparently has gone down to defeat in Florida.

Rios: Tremendous loss, tremendous loss.

Fischer: He was a guy that represented the best of America, his military service, his staunch conservatism on all facets, so the fact that the voters in Florida chose not to renew their confidence, their trust, their contract with Allen West, that’s another mystery to me. But I think one of the things it indicates is that this is no longer the country that we grew up in, this is a different country now today, the values are different, the people are making different and I think alarming choices about who their leaders are going to be.

Rios: I think you’re right, I have some very deep thoughts about this and I’ve just been holding back. The thing that struck me last night and I’ll go right for this I suppose: I really do believe that God is really giving us the desires of our heart, as a nation, not us individually. This is what the nation wants. The nation wants abortion all the time for any reason. That was very important to people, that was one of the reasons that some people went down last night. That’s one of the reasons the President prevailed among women by a pretty high percentage. They want abortion, they are demanding it, they are going to get it and with no restrictions, they are going to get government-funded abortion. They also want gay marriage, they are clamoring for gay marriage. Of course it isn’t just gay marriage, it’s instruction, explicit instruction in public schools, it’s really I think the rape of our children’s innocence, but they want it and they are going to get it, and we’re going to get it too.

Election Night With the AFA: Obama Won Because he Harnessed People's Capacity for Envy, Hate, & Greed

Like Glenn Beck, the American Family Association also hosted a live election night broadcast which took on a somber and sour mood once it became clear that the conservative agenda was going down in defeat all across the board, prompting Sandy Rios to say that Elizabeth Warren was elected to the Senate because Massachusetts had been inundated by gays who destroyed the educational system as she watched in horror the breaking news that Todd Akin was being "blown out" in his bid for the Senate.

Morton Blackwell was then brought in to explain that President Obama was going to win re-election because he "did not underestimate the capacity of people to harbor envy and hate and greed for something for nothing," while Bryan Fischer suggested that perhaps we ought to just split the country in half and let conservatives run their half and liberals run the other ... with a massive wall in between, of course, to keep out all the liberals who would try to sneak in.  

For Tim Wildmon, Obama's re-election could best be explained by the fact that he was re-elected by the states where people don't go to church before finally simply declaring that "it's a tragic night":

Fischer Blasts Gov. Christie, Says That Not Allowing Price-Gouging is 'Socialism'

On today's broadcast, Bryan Fischer blasted New Jersey Governor Chris Christie for praising the Obama Administration's response to Hurricane Sandy and for refusing to campaign for Mitt Romney in the midst of the recovery.  And if that wasn't bad enough, Fischer also criticized Christie for taking a strong stand in support of the state law that bans price-gouging on gasoline during an emergency, saying that not allowing sellers to charge whatever they want amounts to "socialism" and only serves as a disincentive to the production of more gasoline:  

Starnes: Obama to Blame that 'Gangs of Roving Thugs' Have Taken Over New York in Storm Aftermath

Today on "Focal Point," Bryan Fischer welcomed Fox News' Todd Starnes to provide an update on the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, which Starnes insisted was Hurricane Katrina multiplied by five.  While Fischer asserted that the Red Cross "has been virtually useless," Starnes insisted that the Obama administration's response has likewise been an utter failure because New York is now a "jungle" overrun by lawlessness where people have to sleep with baseball bats and knives because they are terrified of "these gangs of roving thugs."

After Starnes declared that "this is a very clear example of Barack Obama's America; this is his Katrina," Fischer again wondered if this "lawlessness" was something the nation would see on a larger scale if President Obama does not win re-election, which prompted Starnes to assert that members of his family are fully prepared to defend themselves in such an event, which is all Obama's fault: 

Inhofe: Obama 'Has Tried to Destroy Every Institution that Makes America Great'

Today, Sen. James Inhofe stopped by "Focal Point" to give Bryan Fischer his predication about next week's election, saying he wanted it on the record that not only is Mitt Romney was going to win "by a substantial margin," but that Republicans will also win control of the Senate because, even though people don't want to say it, "they realize this president has tried to destroy every institution that makes America great." 

"This is still America and they can't get by with that," Inhofe declared, before predicting that Todd Akin would win the Missouri Senate race because his "legitimate rape" gaffe "was a long time ago":

Fischer: 'There Will be Blood' and 'Civil Unrest' if Obama Loses

On yesterday's radio program, Bryan Fischer expounded on a tweet he sent out the other day predicting that there would be organized "flash mobs" who would loot and riot if Mitt Romney wins the election.  Fischer based this theory on reports of looting in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, saying such looting "is just a preview of what's going to happen if President Obama loses the election" and warning that "there will be blood" and "civil unrest":  

Beisner: Hurricane Sandy was Sent By God as 'a Matter of Grace'

Today on "Focal Point,"  Bryan Fischer brought on Dr. Cal Beisner of the Cornwall Alliance to discuss the impact of Hurricane Sandy.  Beisner, who received his doctorate in Scottish History, is the Religious Right's favorite climate change "expert" primarily because his entire agenda is rooted in the belief that environmentalism is a religion that is out to destroy Christianity.

Back in 2011, after a massive tornado devastated parts of Missouri and killed more than 300 people, Beisner claimed that it was sent as "a little taste" of God's judgment, which is a claim he reiterated this time around, saying that through Hurricane Sandy, God is alerting mankind that "there is an eternity of suffering ahead" for those who do not repent and is therefore really "a matter of grace."  That prompted Fischer to declare that Americans now need to "search our hearts, we need to go before God, we need to fast and pray to see if we can understand why we may be, at this time, the object of God's wrath": 

Right Wing Leftovers - 10/30/12

  • James Dobson has endorsed Roy Moore with "enthusiasm and confidence."
  • Mat Staver vows to continue to fight for the Oklahoma personhood amendment.
  • Anti-Mormon activist Tricia Erickson refused to vote for Mitt Romney by "writing in the name of God, because I cannot be right with Him and support either candidate."
  • Gary Bauer has the vapors again.
  • Pat Mahoney and Troy Newman are heading to Ohio to make a "last-minute push for God to remove the most pro-abortion President in America's history."
  • Finally, Bryan Fischer says "you can read the Constitution from front to back, back to front, upside down, from right to left and hanging from a chandelier and you will find no mention whatsoever of any right to engage in sodomy."

Fischer: Obama 'May in Fact be a Closeted Muslim'

While taking calls from listeners yesterday, Bryan Fischer was asked by "Chip in Fitzgerald, Georgia" why nobody in the mainstream media was reporting on the fact the WND-based conspiracy theory claiming that President Obama's wedding ring proves that he is a Muslim.

While the obvious explanation would be that nobody has reported on it because it is nonsense, that was not the explanation that Fischer offered because he knows the real reason the media is not reporting on it is because it is evidence that Obama "may in fact be a closeted Muslim": 

Fischer: If Obama is Re-Elected, 'America has no Future'

As is his usual practice, Bryan Fischer began his radio program yesterday with a Bible reading and discussion, in this case a passage from 2 Kings.  It is Fischer's belief that the Old Testament was preserved so that we can understand "the principles by which God deals with nations," and this reading prompted him to declare that if this nation re-elects President Obama in November "I sincerely believe that America has no future" as the decision "will either delay [God's] day of judgment or it will hasten that day of judgment":

Last month, after Christian radio stations and music fans began to boycott the band Jars of Clay over the lead singer's support for marriage equality, Bryan Fischer proclaimed that this sort of reaction was the logical result of that singer's own decision to make a "foolish declaration." If someone chooses to speak out on this sort of issue, Fischer declared, "that's fine, but then don't complain when there are consequences for making a foolish declaration like that." Of course, that was two whole weeks ago, back when Fischer found such "consequences... MORE >

Fischer cited the bill on his radio program today as evidence that certain types of sexual conduct between consenting adults can be and should be against the law because "it is right to discriminate against sexually immoral behavior" such as prostitution.  As Fischer sees it, "homosexuality is sexual immoral behavior...
