I forget how many times Bryan Fischer has won the award named after him, but it’s several times now. He just keeps showing us his almost supernatural lack of self-awareness. For instance, here he is last Thursday decrying the use of name-calling in debates:
In the latest example, Fischer declared on his show yesterday that liberals reflexively call conservatives “bigots” or “homophobes” or “Islamophobes” because they seek to use name-calling as a way to shut down debate since liberals know that they can’t make substantive arguments.
“Name-calling is the first refuge of a man without an argument,” Fischer said. “So, when somebody starts calling you a name, that’s an indication they know they are out of intellectual ammunition, they cannot defend their position.”
“There’s no tolerance there on the left,” Fischer fumed. “They say they’re the voices and the paragons of tolerance and compassion. They are anything but. They’re cruel, they’re mean-spirited and they’re hateful. You want to know where the hate is in the whole discussion about homosexuality? It’s on the left! They are the haters. They are the bigots. They are the anti-Christian haters, they’re Christophobes, virtually every last one of them.”
The man could not be more of a ridiculous buffoon if he tried.
