Bryan Fischer Fired by American Family Association

Bryan Fischer Fired by American Family Association January 29, 2015

Holy shit! Bryan Fischer has been fired as the Director of Issues Analysis by the American Family Association, though it appears he still has a radio show for them. Rachel Maddow apparently first reported the news and it was confirmed by Tim Wildmon.

At issue this time is an RNC trip to Israel that was apparently being paid for by the American Family Association, of which Fischer is the director of issues analysis.

Or, rather, he was. Until today.

Maddow quoted AFA President Tim Wildmon as dismissing Fischer as “just a talk show host” who is no longer associated with the AFA. When asked specifically what bothered him about Fischer, he cited “the soundbite quotes, you know, the Hitler and the homosexuality one… we reject that.”

Update- 11:11 pm EST: For the sake of clarification, Fischer has been fired as a spokesperson and director of issues analysis, but is still a radio show host for the AFA.
