Bryan Fischer, the self-declared voice of Godly morality for the entire nation, has been caught in a baldfaced lie. In the process of criticizing the Washington Post for a story about the American Family Association he claims is inaccurate, he told this whopper:
In complaining that the Washington Post failed to check with the AFA before publishing its report, Fischer said that something similar happened to him several years ago when people falsely claimed that he asserted that black people on welfare “rut like rabbits” in order to receive more benefits from the government.
“I never said that blacks and minorities ‘rut like rabbits,'” Fischer insisted, “but that’s what they accused me of saying. I didn’t say it. I said people do this. You get more of whatever you subsidize.”
Let’s go to the wayback machine:
Welfare has destroyed the African-American family by telling young black women that husbands and fathers are unnecessary and obsolete. Welfare has subsidized illegitimacy by offering financial rewards to women who have more children out of wedlock. We have incentivized fornication rather than marriage, and it’s no wonder we are now awash in the disastrous social consequences of people who rut like rabbits.
After Right Wing Watch criticized him for it, the article was rewritten to take out the phrase “rut like rabbits,” but they still have the original article. He did say it. He’s lying. But it’s okay, cuz he’s lying for Jesus.
