Prager: Everyone on Israel Trip Repulsed by Fischer

Along with 60 members of the Republican National Committee, Dennis Prager is also on that trip to Israel financed by the American Family Association, which tried to distance itself from Bryan Ficher by partially firing him last week. And Prager says everyone on that trip finds Fischer’s views repugnant:

Earlier this week, the AFA distanced itself from its former spokesman who had made statements described by critics as anti-Semitic, homophobic and racist. The spokesman, Bryan Fischer, had said, among other remarks, that America is a Christian nation in which Jews and Muslims are not entitled to constitutional protection for their religious expression.

Prager said he completely supported the decision to cut ties with Fischer. “The second I heard what he said, I said that if he really said those thing they’re repugnant,” he said. “Everybody here thinks they’re repugnant. Frankly, I can’t believe that a human being in the 21st century would say such things. It’s mind-blowing.”

The Jewish talk show host said he had never heard of Fischer before, nor had he had any dealings with any other representatives of the AFA. “This is all brand new news to me,” he said.

So he’s never even heard of Fischer, but he’s sure that everyone on that trip finds his views repugnant. Really? I’d be willing to bet that there are people on that trip who have been on Fischer’s show and have said virtually identical things. I don’t know if Tamara Scott of the RNC is on this particular trip, or Dave Agema, but they’ve said things at least as bad as Fischer. I love this tactic — hell, not only do we reject his views, we don’t even know who he is!

    One asshole, travelling with other assholes that he agrees with, states “These assholes that I agree with don’t like that asshole who I for the most part agree with.”

    The spokesman, Bryan Fischer, had said, among other remarks, that America is a Christian nation in which Jews and Muslims are not entitled to constitutional protection for their religious expression.

    So, is Fisher in the dog house because he stated that the constitution does not apply to:

    1. Gays

    2. Muslims

    3. Jews

    Had Fisher instead used the ‘christo-Judeo’ nation version, he would not have become persona non grata?

    Oh come on, they’re Christains, they’re all just drooling for Jesus to come back and take them to Heaven – after killing all the Jews of course.

  • Loqi

    He didn’t know the face of the organization bankrolling him? I find that about as convincing as “I didn’t know they were white supremecists,” “my twitter got hacked,” and “other people publish my newsletter.”

    From the article Ed quotes:

    Bryan Fischer, had said, among other remarks, that America is a Christian nation in which Jews and Muslims are not entitled to constitutional protection for their religious expression.

    Prager said he completely supported the decision to cut ties with Fischer. “The second I heard what he said, I said that if he really said those thing they’re repugnant,” he said. “Everybody here thinks they’re repugnant. Frankly, I can’t believe that a human being in the 21st century would say such things. It’s mind-blowing.”

    5 seconds of googling demonstrates Dennis Prager’s a fucking liar. Here’s Ed Brayton [1] quoting Prager in 2006:

    Keith Ellison, D-Minn., the first Muslim elected to the United States Congress, has announced that he will not take his oath of office on the Bible, but on the bible of Islam, the Koran.

    He should not be allowed to do so — not because of any American hostility to the Koran, but because the act undermines American civilization.[2]

    Of course they are fuckin’ liars they are christian , it goes with their territory…

    “The second I heard what he said, I said that if he really said those thing they’re repugnant,”

    Incoherency is the default when they are caught pillaging the cookie jar, it is what they do…

    Liars 4 jeebus never bother with context or responsibility, fuck they don’t even bother with integrity or honesty.

    They still have Fischer pimping for them. and no doubt when the stench wafts away they will all be good buddies again.

    Headline in the Christian Post:

    Four Blood Moons’ Book by Pastor John Hagee Gets Big-Screen Treatment; Docu-Drama to Feature Expert Commentary From Dinesh D’Souza, Dennis Prager and David Barton.

    So much for Prager being repulsed by bigots.

    Never heard of the guy. Reminds of how GW Bush claimed he’d never even met Ken Lay, the guy he has his arm around in this photo:

    When wingnuts turn on eachother I find it particularly funny until I remember that they run this country and this country has nuclear weapons.
