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!
