As we have said time and time and time and time again, Bryan Fischer is a lot of things, but self-aware is not one of them, which is something he continues to demonstrate with alarming regularity on his radio program.
In the latest example, Fischer declared on his show yesterday that liberals reflexively call conservatives “bigots” or “homophobes” or “Islamophobes” because they seek to use name-calling as a way to shut down debate since liberals know that they can’t make substantive arguments.
“Name-calling is the first refuge of a man without an argument,” Fischer said. “So, when somebody starts calling you a name, that’s an indication they know they are out of intellectual ammunition, they cannot defend their position.”
That is an interesting claim to hear someone like Fischer make, since just the day before, on his Wednesday radio program, he spent a segment engaging in all sorts of name-calling against LGBT activists.
“There’s no tolerance there on the left,” Fischer fumed. “They say they’re the voices and the paragons of tolerance and compassion. They are anything but. They’re cruel, they’re mean-spirited and they’re hateful. You want to know where the hate is in the whole discussion about homosexuality? It’s on the left! They are the haters. They are the bigots. They are the anti-Christian haters, they’re Christophobes, virtually every last one of them.”
