Fischer: Shep Smith Downplays Ebola Because He’s Gay

Fox News host Shep Smith delivered what amounted to a rebuke of his own network for their hysterical hyping of the threat of Ebola. Bryan Fischer, while having absolutely nothing of substance to say in response, dismisses Smith’s entire take on the subject because he’s gay.

“Shepard Smith is a card-carrying liberal,” Fischer explained. “He has been outed as an active homosexual, so he’s down with the entire homosexual agenda. People think he’s on Fox so he’s conservative. Anything but.”

“Why would he want to support President Obama?” Fischer asked, before playing Smith’s segment on the Ebola panic. “Because President Obama supports the homosexual agenda.”

See, there are two things that Fischer finds inconceivable. One is a gay person ever being right about anything at all. The other is that any set of claims that makes Obama look bad could possibly be false. Since he interprets every single fact solely on whether it is good or bad for his political position, he can’t imagine that someone could actually evaluate the evidence objectively and reach a conclusion that doesn’t confirm Fischer’s biases.

    So a gay ebola virus (which is probably also guilty of being black, being from and mostly found in western Africa) is worse then a straight ebola virus (which is being brought into USAlienstani by hoards of moolsin children invading from the south)?

    Fischer’s expertise in all things gay is awesome. I presume it’s based on extensive research and field work.

  • dhall

    It’s also interesting that any attempt to look at this issue from a rational point of view is both gay and pro-Obama.

    I find ad hominens to the most rudimentary form rhetorical fallacy. I also find that they’re extremely popular with conservative Christians I interact with in meat-world.

    As an illustration, I was at a dinner that was predominately conservative Christians. An out of town liberal noted an argument for a foreign policy approach by George Soros that utilized carrots and sticks relative to how non-U.S. country performed on human rights. The response by one was that George Soros was an atheist. Some of the others nodded their head.

    The liberal, who is from a liberal area of the country whereas this dinner was in a region almost pure red, had a difficult time keeping her forehead off the table.

    Michael Heath, to be fair, Soros* is an Athiest.

    Re Michael Heath @ #5

    So I guess that those responders would dismiss anything written by George Will who admitted last week that he was an atheist.

    The same applies to Charles Krauthammer who admits to being an agnostic.

    The ability to connect unrelated issues constantly amazes me. Even if Shep is gay, so what – how does that discredit what he has to say. The current “panic” over Ebola is just one more boogeyman to throw up before the elections, somehow Obama done it, and of course then your local Senator or Congressperson is in concert with the plot. Not sure this is actually going to make much difference though as the people whipped into anti-Demo hysteria are already there and planning to vote their prejudices anyway.

    He knows gays can be right and Obama can be good, but he also knows he can make heaps of money by preaching the opposite to his hillbilly followers. They think he is wonderful. He thinks they are the dopiest people on the planet.

    Another case where Obama, or his administration, can never get any credit for doing anything and anyone who gives them even the slightest credit is obviously part of their evil plan.

    I want to know what qualifies a homosexual as ‘active’. I am wondering because unless Mr Smith is having sex in public, I expect I would be just as ‘active’ as he is, just heterosexual in my activities. I seriously doubt Mr Fischer would refer to me as ‘an active heterosexual.’ So why does Mr Fischer always have to fixate his imagination on what people like Shep Smith are doing in their own homes?

    Mr Fischer, Get a grip you perverted evil man.

    If being rational about Ebola supports Obama, then being irrational about Ebola supports . . . who?

  • John Pieret

    If being rational about Ebola supports Obama, then being irrational about Ebola supports . . . who?

    Gawd, of course!

    What I find amusing is the notion that somehow, in some unspecified way, Obama was personally responsible for the crummy diagnostic and isolation protocols of a hospital in Dallas and that merely saying, despite the fuck-up, there is still no need to panic, is somehow ‘supporting President Obama.’ Why, it’s almost as if anyone who doesn’t blame Obama for every bad thing that happens is, in fact, supporting him.

    It took a red state to screw this up.

    I remain furious at the stunning level of indifference and/or incompetence (probably “and”) displayed by Texas Presbyterian.

    Ebola is nothing to sneeze at. It IS a big fucking deal.

    Did you see the explanation as to why both infected nurses weren’t sent to the NIH? Because the NIH only has TWO beds suitable for Ebola patients. Guess what? Most hospitals have zero beds appropriate for Ebola patients. Zero. Anyone who claims that the US health system will contain Ebola is smoking something very, very strong and strange.

    We are so unprepared for an infection like this, it isn’t funny.

    Blame? Plenty to go around. Mostly, the right wingers who cut the CDC budgets. But, fuck me, the Administration is to blame, too. For not insisting that we not put the health of the nation at risk.

    We have cowered in the face of Tea Party nonsense long enough. Time to stand up and say that there are legitimate roles for the federal government, and this is one of them.

    …because he’s gay.

    Ad hominem anyone?

  • Jared James

    Waaait, wait, wait. Fischer’s got this all wrong. Shep Smith isn’t wrong about Ebola because he’s gay; he’s wrong about Ebola because he’s black. And probably Muslin.

    A true Christian knows the only thing that can cure Ebola is prayer, or the laying of hands by the rightful monarch.
