Last week we noted that Senate Republicans had put Gen. Jerry Boykin on their list of witnesses to testify against Elena Kagan during her Supreme Court confirmation hearing, seemingly unaware of just how radically right-wing his views were.
Sadly, they quickly wised up and dropped him from the list but, in a serendipitous turn of events, the AFA’s Bryan Fischer had Boykin on his radio program today to discuss the entire issue.
In this clip, Fischer calls out Senate Republicans to caving to a bunch of bloggers sitting around in the pajamas and clicking away on their laptops, and Boykin agrees, saying that Sen. Sessions called him to apologize but that doesn’t change the fact that there are no good Christian men in Congress who are willing to stand up for the truth. Boykin then goes on to give a quick synopsis of what he would have said, had his invitation not been rescinded, eventually getting into Sen. Inhofe territory suggesting that the troops will be unwilling to die for their fellow gay soldiers:
Now, that sort of testimony might be relevant to a hearing about Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, but that Boykin intended to deliver it during a confirmation hearing for Kagan seems rather odd, to put it mildly.
So it seems pretty clear that Senate Republicans made a smart move by dropping Boykin … after all, I am sure that the last thing they wanted was to watch Boykin go off about how Islam is not a religion and should not be protected by the First Amendment:
