Dear Religious Right, This is What Intentional 'Misrepresentation' Looks Like
At this point, we don't really expect much from Bryan Fischer ... but still, some basic honesty would be nice.
On his radio program today, Fischer was discussing remarks Sen. Harry Reid delivered on the Senate floor last week blasting the failure by Congress, thanks to House Republicans, to pass a relief package for those impacted by Hurricane Sandy. In his remarks, Reid noted that Congress passed legislation aiding victims of Hurricane Katrina within ten days back in 2005, while victims of Sandy have had to wait over two months for assistance.
But in Fischer's deluded world, Reid's remarks were "a damning indictment of [President] Obama's FEMA."
Fischer was fully aware that Reid was criticizing Congress for failing to appropriate the money that FEMA needs to carry out relief work but flagrantly misrepresented his statement to claim that Reid was admitting that when President Bush was in charge, Katrina victims received assistance within days, while Sandy victims under Obama have been forced to wait months:
The next time any Religious Right activist wants to complain that we "misrepresent" their views or take their statements "out of context," we'll just point them to this Fischer clip as an example of what real, actual intentional misrepresentation looks like.
