Fischer Feigns Insult

Fischer Feigns Insult October 13, 2011

Now this is hilarious. Bryan Fischer is simply verklempt at the notion that Mitt Romney would deliver even the incredibly mild rebuke of his extremist bigotry at the Values Voters Summit. He thinks it was downright rude and impolite of him to do so.

It was just an odd thing to me, it was just bizarre because I did not think that Mitt Romney would fall for the bait. I mean, the Left was trying to goad him into attacking me and I didn’t think he would do it – I thought he had too much class for that. What he did was completely and utterly lacking in class. It was tacky, it was impolite, it was rude, he insulted his host in the presence of the guests; the host who had made it possible for him to speak to the pro-family community. I just thought he had more class than that.

When I came out into the main lobby outside of the room where we were meeting, I was just besieged by the media, just inundated, enveloped with media. I had never experienced anything like that before and the only reason was because Mitt Romney attacked me. So they wanted to know what I thought about that and I explained that I thought it was pretty tacky, I thought it was unpresidential of him to do that. And they said “when Governor Romney was referring to your ‘poisonous language,’ what was he talking about?’ I said “I have absolutely no idea.”

Jesus used poisonous language. He was the one who referred to the Pharisees as a brood of vipers. I’ve never said that about anyone. I mean, Jesus used far more incendiary and inflammatory language than I have ever used.

Wow. On Planet Wingnuttia, it’s perfectly fine to express the most vile and bigoted things about others. If they dare to respond in even the most weak-kneed fashion, that’s rude and classless. And up is down. And black is white.

    Bwahahahahahahaha

    Thank you for the great laugh. Laughter keep you young. I need all the laughter I can get.

    Hmmm. I wonder if he gave any thought to the implications of this assertion.

    Bryan keeps himself in a near vacuum in case air molecules hit his skin. The damage caused by such impacts might rupture it causing him to uncontrollably bleed to death* – Dingo

    I don’t believe in “life after death”, let alone Hell.

    Also, as an ethical principle, I wouldn’t worship a deity who use eternal Hell, not even on the worst creeps. In younger years, this was actually a factor that moved me away from the austere but benign church I was raised in.

    However, if there is a Hell, there is the silver lining that some people will get what they deserve.

    I was going to say that no Hell could be hot enough to punish this narcissistic, authoritarian punk for referring to himself his decadent, post-modern bigot followers as “the pro-family community”.

    But I guess it could, if it was infinitely hot.

    You need to get the right perspective. Since Fischer is never wrong about anything, anything that contradicts him is a priori wrong and must be called out. Anything that Fischer condemns must be taken as the absolute truth, so any nasty shit he comes up with must be taken as gospel. That isn’t hard to understand, is it?

    I thought I’d read it was Fischer, but it was Robert Jeffress, pastor of a Dallas megachurch, endorsing Perry.

    “Do we want a candidate who is skilled in rhetoric or one who is skilled in leadership? Do we want a candidate who is a conservative out of convenience or one who is a conservative out of deep conviction?” Jeffress said. “Do we want a candidate who is a good, moral person — or one who is a born-again follower of the lord Jesus Christ?”

    I’ll take the good moral person, thankyouverymuch.

  • d cwilson

    No surprise there. It’s always the most hateful speakers in the world who drag their fainting couches around wherever they go in case they hear even the mildest rebuke.

  • Aquaria

    What a hysterical drama queen!

    I mean, the Left was trying to goad him into attacking me and I didn’t think he would do it

    1) It didn’t come from the left, but from the sane branch of your own party, you moronic fuckface.

    2) You call that an attack, Bryan? Seriously? You say worse than that about women, gays and non-Christians before you even get out of bed in the morning. So you can dish it out but you can’t take it?

    So you’re not only a moron, a bigot, a bully and a drama queen, but also a sniveling fuckface of a coward?

    What.

    A.

    Fucking.

    Surprise.

    “I mean, Jesus used far more incendiary and inflammatory language than I have ever used.”

    Jesus was a wuss. Now Santa Claus, when he was on a bender he’d say some of the vilest things about the reindeer and elves. He’s better now after the time at Betty Ford.

  • Abby Normal

    I’ll defer to Fischer’s judgment on this one. After all, he’s the expert when it comes to being classless, tacky, impolite, and rude.

  • passerby

    In several times in my service, I’ve seen and heard some stupid and vile things, and almost immediately wished to kick these people in the teeth for their ignorance.

    But then I step back a bit, and think about what that would do to me and the Constitution I defend. If I were allowed to kick Fischer in the teeth, would another guy from my unit kick Ed Schultz in the teeth because he disagrees?

    So I step back, and remember the Army motto:

    “This we’ll defend.”

    I still would like to kick him in the teeth. But I won’t, because it’s his right to be wrong.

    One never remarks upon the ineffable attribute of “classiness” invested in one’s self or the lack thereof in the personal make-up of others if one wishes to be perceived as having this particular quality.

    It just isn’t done.

    Excuse me, but why should I care about “bigotry” directed toward ANY religious group, particularly the Mormons?

    They can all die and roast in their respective versions of Hell for all I care.
