Is Bryan Fischer Too Bigoted Even For The Values Voter Summit?
The last time Bryan Fischer spoke at the Values Voter Summit was back in 2011, when organizers tried to hide his involvement in the conference because of his long history of unabashed bigotry. The effort failed as the decision to allow him to speak badly backfired when Mitt Romney, who was also speaking at the event, called out Fischer's bigotry from the stage and repudiated it.
In 2012, VVS organizers wised up and dropped Fischer from the program altogether, though Fischer insisted at the time that he was not being shunned, but was simply giving up his normal speaking slot to AFA President Tim Wildmon:
“The explanation is quite simple,” Fischer wrote. “I was filling in the last couple of years for our president, Tim Wildmon, who has had scheduling conflicts in the recent past. As a devoted father, he didn’t want to miss any of his son’s high school football games. Now that his son has graduated, he’s back on the podium at VVS, and I happily defer to him. I will be there, broadcasting my radio program on both Thursday and Friday as I have done in previous years.”
The next annual VVS is taking place next month and once again it looks like organizers have decided to drop Fischer from the program since he appears nowhere on the list of confirmed and invited speakers.
Despite the fact that the AFA is one of the primary sponsors of the event, neither Fischer nor Wildmon appear on the speakers' list even though other radical Religious Right activists like Rick Scarborough, Janet Porter, Jerome Corsi and AFR radio host Sandy Rios are all confirmed:
Is it really possible that Bryan Fischer has finally become so toxic that he is not being allowed to speak at an event that his own organization is co-sponsoring?
