Evangelical radio host calls blacks ‘drug-addled addicts’ for taking welfare
By David Edwards
Wednesday, August 1, 2012 14:23 EDT

The director of issues analysis of a conservative fundamentalist Christian organization on Wednesday accused the Democratic Party of trying to make African Americans into “slaves” and “drug-addled addicts” with welfare benefits.

“The Democrats as a party, I believe, they want slaves, they want Americans to be as slavishly dependent upon the central government as slaves were upon their masters in pre-Civil War days, that’s what they want,” Bryan Fischer explained on his American Family Associations radio show. “We were talking this morning about how in the world is it that African Americans still support the Democratic Party? How can you explain that, when the Democratic Party is the party of slavery, the KKK, Jim Crow laws, lynch mobs, the party that filibustered the Civil Rights Act, how can you explain this?”

Fischer concluded that the only possible explanation for Democrats being supported by blacks was that the party “promises them more goodies” to get them “addicted.”

“It’s like the government is one big giant methadone clinic and they’re just handing out these injections to people in the form of welfare benefits to get them hooked, so they got to hook up with their supplier once a month, they got to get their fix, they got to hook up with their dealer on a street corner once a month and get their fix from the federal government,” he explained. “They’re like drug-addled addicts and the Democrat Party has gotten them addicted to welfare benefits. That apparently is the only reason they continue to support this party.”

1. So what about all the white people who also take it

Since close to 40% of all welfare recipients are white.

14. I thoutht the percentage was higher.

More like 40% were black.

Still, that's largely the basis of their point. 12.5% of the population = 40% of welfare recipients (let's use my number, it's lower).

If Anglo-Saxon-surnamed people formed 12.5% of the population and got 40% of college degrees, there'd be hell to pay. (Come to think of it, I'm not sure that isn't actually the case.)

7. Not that jerk again!

Bryan Jonathan Fischer is the Director of Issues Analysis for the American Family Association (AFA). He hosts the talk radio program Focal Point on American Family Radio and posts on the AFA-run blog Rightly Concerned.

Fischer opposes abortion, national health care, environmentalism, gay adoption, and same-sex marriage. Fischer's controversial comments on racial and ethnic minorities were cited by Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) in explaining the hate group designation they gave to the AFA in November 2010.

In November 2010, the SPLC changed their listing of the AFA from a group that used hate speech to the more serious one of being designated a hate group. The SPLC's Mark Potok said that the AFA's "propagation of known falsehoods and demonizing propaganda" was the basis for the change. Fischer's anti-gay comments were given as an example by SPLC in support of the hate group designation.

Recently, Fischer has become a supporter of the AIDS denial movement. His guest on the January 3, 2012 edition of Focal Point was prominent AIDS denialist Peter Duesberg. On that show, Fischer strongly supported Duesberg's contention that AIDS is not caused by HIV, but by recreational drug use. Fischer expanded on this further in a post on Rightly Concerned, saying that it isn't possible for a virus to remain dormant for a long period of time. He cited as an example Magic Johnson, who was diagnosed with HIV in 1991 and has remained healthy for over 20 years. This is despite overwhelming scientific consensus that HIV can stay dormant for several years before the onset of AIDS. In Fischer's view, HIV is a hoax that was concocted by cancer researchers who needed an excuse to keep their grants. He has also expressed support for tax protester theory; on the April 17, 2012 edition of Focal Point he made the common tax protester argument that the 16th Amendment does not count wages and salaries as income.

MormonVoices
, a group associated with Foundation for Apologetic Information & Research, included Fischer on its Top Ten Anti-Mormon Statements of 2011 list for saying "Mormonism is not an orthodox Christian faith. It just is not ... It's very clear that the Founding Fathers did not intend to preserve automatically religious liberty for non-Christian faiths."

In a June 18 issue of The New Yorker magazine ("Bully Pulpit"), author Jane Mayer featured Fischer in an article describing his influence in the Republican Party and 2012 presidential election. On 20 April, Fischer attacked (Republican Party presidential candidate) Mitt Romney's national security spokesman Richard Grenell for being openly gay. Other conservatives joined Fischer in calling for Grenell's ouster, and by 1 May Grenell resigned from the Romney campaign, in what Fischer described as a "huge win" for conservatives. During the 2012 presidential primaries, Republican Party candidates Rick Santorum, Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich, Tim Pawlenty were guest on Fischer's show. (Romney did not appear as he was not invited.)

In the article (whose facts Mayer says "were ... all checked with Fischer, and where he had factual objections, his caveats were included"), Mayer also quotes Fischer as saying that President Barack Obama "despises the constitution, ... nurtures a hatred for the white man", and aims to "destroy capitalism." Fischer strongly believes that sexual orientation is "always, always, always a matter of choice," and strongly opposes what he calls the "morally and intellectually bankrupt theory of evolution."

On the issue of religion and tax policy, Fischer believes that the progressive income taxes and estate taxes violate the Eighth and Tenth Commandments, because (he feels) by taxing the income and estates of the well off, the government `steals` and `covets` their wealth.

I don't think the 3-paragraph rule applies, if it does, please let me know and I'll edit some of it out. This just about says it all about where this guy is coming from except there have been so many stories about this bigot making comments.

Such as claiming Obama demeaned the Medal of Honor (or another award) by giving it to a guy who'd saved the lives of his fellow soldiers instead of killing people. He really said that, including adding in the Limbaugh quote on how armies are supposed to break things and kill people.

That's how obvious and intellectually deficit this clown is, that he uses BFI terms in his rants. He's said other robustly hateful things, as well. I'm glad at least that I grew up in a time where there was a Fairness Doctrine.

26. Great and revealing Reply, freshwest. Maybe

We can use this douchebag to fire up evangelicals against RMoney.

Amazing how policy wonks like him think they understand microbiology better than scientists and that scientists are just scam artists.

That dude has some serious Hatred coursing through his veins. I'm looking forward to his public humiliation when he's caught with a sex worker.

that all these Evangelical radio host, or any of these so-called religious outfits ( they are not really churches) be taxed as a business, this rhetoric is purely political, and has nothing to do with religion.

To the banks and corporations...they want us in continual debt. Always having to work longer hours for less pay to pay for necessities. The hell with luxuries, we are borrowing and working overtime or two jobs just to keep up with the necessities. That's servitude.

19. "Runaway Slave" -a new documentary film from Conservatives attacks Government and w/be in theaters

in limited release for now but this is an interesting new tactic. The clip shows black conservatives calling out black dems for complicity with "Big Government" as the problem that keeps the black community down and subservient.

We watch movie preview shows at our house and just saw this one over the weekend. Republicans have always thought Democrats had too much favor and help from Hollywood (and people like Michael Moore and others). Guess they're getting into the documentary movie business now:

The problem is, to me, some of it uses truth (the prison system and others) and then distorts it so that it's all the fault of 'Big Government' and progressives. But then that's always one of their tactics isn't it?

Now that Republicans have effectively condemned the term Liberal, they're going after Progressive in a big way.

Some quotes in the preview:

"The size and scope and reach Government is the new plantation." - Herman Cain

"...back to founding fathers and away from progressivism."

"Run away from socialism... Run away from progressivism! RUN!"

21. The radio host is being used as a set up for the concept of the film and is there to help spread the

right words around.

So many of the thoughts and words used are the same as those used in their film.

It's just too obvious that these will be the new words that everyone will be using soon.
