Maddow: Are There Any Political Consequences For Appearing With Bryan Fischer?

On her program Friday, Rachel Maddow asked a very smart question:  namely, whether there will ever be any political consequences for Republican leaders for appearing alongside an anti-Muslim bigot like the American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer, which Michele Bachmann, Jim DeMint, Newt Gingrich, Mike Huckabee, Bob McDonnell, Mike Pence, Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, and several others will all be doing later this week at the Values Voter Summit:

Presumably, the answer to this question is “no”, because there is seemingly nothing that any Religious Right activist can ever say that get them ostracized by the movement … which is why Fischer is free to say that Muslims are stupid and dangerous because they are all inbred and should all be banned from serving in the military and deported and stripped of their citizenship and denied their religious liberties and still get to share the stage with conservative leaders and Republican presidential hopefuls.
