Fischer: Satan is Fooling Megyn Kelly

Fox News host Megyn Kelly had Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal on her show and criticized him for an absurd plan to ban Muslim immigration. Bryan Fischer joined one of his callers in attacking her and claiming that Satan has blinded her and fooled her into not supporting that plan.

Fischer, a longtime supporter of banning Muslim immigration and requiring immigrants convert to Christianity, said Kelly “simply does not get it with regard to the danger of Islamic immigration.”

When the caller said that Kelly’s refusal to endorse Jindal’s plan is “a product of the judgments and cursings on the land of our inability to connect on things that have to do with our mutual interest and dealing with practical problems in a commonsensical way,” Fischer said that Satan is behind such disagreements because he wants to “supernaturally fool” and “deceive” people.

“He can blind the eyes of people to the plain and honest truth,” Fischer said. “People that are blinded to truth that ought to be evident to them – and we look at them and say, ‘why don’t they see it, how can they not see it’ – well, part of the issue is they are being subject to a blindness and they are not even aware that their eyes have been blinded.”

I gotta get me one of those satan thingies to blame everything on. It’s just so convenient. You don’t have to think at all about any position that disagrees with your own, you just dismiss it as coming from satan and it magically is disproved.

    I gotta get me one of those satan thingies to blame everything on.

    Let’s see how this works:

    Stupidity and ignorance can blind the eyes of people to the plain and honest truth. People that are blinded by stupidity and ignorance to truth that ought to be evident to them – and we look at them and say, ‘why don’t they see it, how can they not see it’ – well, part of the issue is they are being subject to a blindness by stupidity and ignorance and they are not even aware that their eyes have been blinded.

    It has the advantage that, unlike blaming Satan, it is often true.

    “He can blind the eyes of people to the plain and honest truth,” Fischer said. “People that are blinded to truth that ought to be evident to them – and we look at them and say, ‘why don’t they see it, how can they not see it’ – well, part of the issue is they are being subject to a blindness and they are not even aware that their eyes have been blinded.”

    What always amazes me about this argument is the incredible arrogance of it. If you believe in a devil with this kind of power to deceive, what makes you think you’re not the one who has been blinded? Satan is a figure so close to omniscient that he’s a credible threat to God and his plan. But you, you see right through him. You’re just that special.

    “Fox News host Megyn Kelly…”

    Those 1st two words make me think it would not be too hard for Satan, or anyone, to fool her.

    Preacherman Grandpa would occasionally rant about the lies the Presbyterians or the Episcopalians told about the bible.

    .

    “But Grandpa, maybe they’re just making a mistake.”

    “It’s obvious what the bible says! They’re not ‘just making a mistake’, they’re lying because they’ve sold their souls to the devil!”

    “But… suppose you made mistake?”

    “Are you calling Gawd a liar!”

    “What? No! I’m just wondering about how you can be so sure that you haven’t erred in reading this…”

    “I don’t interpret it! I just read it as it is!”

    “[…]”

    Why just Islam? It’s at least Abrahamic. I would think that he would be even more opposed to having Buddhists and Hindus entering the United States. He should have brought that up with Jindal.

    How would banning Muslin immigration even work? “Are you a Muslin?” “Yes. I mean, no.” “Are you a Christian?” “No. I mean, yes.” “Okay, welcome to America.”

    Megyn often has interactions with non-existent beings. After all she knew that Santa was white. I’m being she’s probably claimed that of the Easter bunny to at some point.

    “a product of the judgments and cursings on the land of our inability to connect on things that have to do with our mutual interest and dealing with practical problems in a commonsensical way,”

    And by “commonsensical” what Caller Chickenshit really means is “cruel, unjust, discriminatory and excessive.” Something like “I wanna commit genocide against Muslims, and if you disagree, that makes you the bad guy!”

    “He can blind the eyes of people to the plain and honest truth,” Fischer said.

    Stop talking about yourself in the second person, Adolf.

    “People that are blinded to truth that ought to be evident to them”

    Adolf Fischsticks denies evolution and climate change

    “and we look at them and say, ‘why don’t they see it, how can they not see it’”

    We see just fine, the problem is that you are delusional and high on the smell of your own shit.

    “well, part of the issue is they are being subject to a blindness and they are not even aware that their eyes have been blinded.”

    Ladies and gentlemen, the Dunning-Kruger effect at play.
