I’m starting to think that maybe we just out to change the name of this blog to “Bryan Fischer Watch” since it seems that so many of our posts lately are dedicated to nothing more than chronicling the endless stream of insanity spewed by the AFA’s Bryan Fischer.
For instance, yesterday Fischer responded to news that BP is creating a $20 billion escrow account to cover damages from the Golf oil spill by attacking President Obama as a “fascist dictator”:
Now ladies and gentleman, what you are about to hear are the words of a fascist. These are the words of a fascist dictator. That’s the definition of fascism, and this is not even an American company. He is acting as as a fascist with companies that aren’t even American companies.
Now what fascism is is when the government allows industry to stay in private hands, but tells it exactly how to run its business. And remember the President’s been a fascist … he says “I’ve been a fascist from day one. They can’t blow their nose without asking permission from me, they can’t clean the wax out of their ears unless they get a sign-off from me.” That’s what fascist dictators do!
Now what President Obama is going to say in this clip is the words of a fascist dictator. Let’s listen.
[Clip of President Obama: Tomorrow, I will meet with the chairman of BP and inform him that he is to set aside whatever resources are required to compensate the workers and business owners who have been harmed as a result of his company’s recklessness. And this fund will not be controlled by BP. In order to ensure that all legitimate claims are paid out in a fair and timely manner, the account must and will be administered by an independent third party.]
Now ladies and gentlemen, this, this is, this is, and I’m looking around for the right word here, this is completely unamerican. This is beyond the pale. I mean, this is fascism, this is a dictator in action.
Shortly after this, Sen. Jim Inhofe came on the program as Fischer’s guest to continue discussing the BP oil spill.
