Fischer: Michael Brown Possessed by ‘Homicidal Demon’

Bryan Fischer has added his very thoughtful and relevant views to the national conversation about the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. He thinks it reflects deeper structural problems in society. Just kidding, he thinks Brown was possessed by a “homicidal demon.”

“I think that at this point there was a demonic presence that was operating inside Michael Brown’s body,” Fischer said, “activating him, energizing him, driving him forward in this homicidal rage. So when he says he looked like a demon, I think that’s because he was looking into the eyes of a demon that was driving Michael Brown to do what he did.”

Gosh Bryan, is there anyone you don’t like who isn’t demon-possessed? And if Brown was possessed by a homicidal demon, what was Darren Wilson possessed by, since he was the only who actually, ya know, committed homicide.

    Jesus more than likely. Shooting black people is the work of Jesus. (Also does he think the mark of Ham is a real thing like his racist predecessors?)

    Wilson apparently agreed. Referring to Brown as “it,” he too saw a demon there instead of a human being.

    So, what’s the over/under on how long before ‘demon’ replaces ‘thug’ as the dogwhistle for ‘nigger’?

    Running around accusing everyone you don’t like of being possessed by demons sounds like something a person possessed by demons would do, doesn’t it?

    Pedhaps Fischer could enlighten us all as to which demon possessed George W. Bush when he launched the illegal, immoral and unnecessary war in Iraq or when he violated international treaties, the UN Declaration on Human Rights and common decency in authorizng torture. Or maybe demons only possess poor black people.

    Or maybe demons only possess poor black people.

    That’s simply nonsense. Obama isn’t poor. I think it’s more along the lines of “only possess poor OR black people.” The or is, of course, inclusive, and being both greatly increases one’s possessability.

    “…since he was the one who actually, you know, committed homicide.”

    Nope, self-defense. Brown charged Wilson.

  • Artor

    Bryan Fischer is possessed by a demon of malignant stupidity.

    And so is dan4.

    And you actually believe a trained police officer had no other choice but to kill an unarmed teenager, whom he had originally confronted over jaywalking?

    No, that can’t be right. Gay people, black or white, are also possessed. Feminists too!

    I think the basic algorithm is: ‘Everyone who doesn’t think like me and look like me and who disagrees with me and, instead of being quiet, insists of saying it out loud or, worse, trying to socially enforce their position, is demon possessed.

  • comfychair

    ‘It’s impossible that I could be wrong, therefore anyone who disagrees with me must be part of some shadowy evil plot.’

    @ Dan4, a homicide is any killing of a human by another. It does not connote intent or criminality.

    The officer committed homicide. There seems to be some disagreement on whether it was justifiable or not.

    These guys say that the grand jury was a sham.

    I really dont care. The goid police officer did his job. Niggers have alot of nerve. Good thing this nigglet was executed. He was a terrorist just like all the dirty sprogs and their offsprings. Im sick of seeing dirty ole leslie mcspadden and his niggerdaddy with the beard. I winder which one is the man and woman. Maybe theyre trannys. Niggers suck plain and simple. Fucking anal warts in human history.
