Wow. Just. Wow. This is how God-fearing, “Christian” American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer, the organization’s Director of Issues Analysis, refers to the President of the United States when critiquing Barack Obama’s decision related to military action in Libya. Via Twitter:
I’m sure that he revels in tossing “boy” at this President. Nice, Bryan, we know your color-aroused slip is showing — in the most loving way, of course.
Alvin’s take is at his pad (he gave me the go-ahead to post here). His reaction to Fischer’s tweet “Even Washington Post has major problems with the boy president’s act of war against Libya. Running out of friends. http://ow.ly/4iIcS #tcot”:
I dare anyone to tell me that this isn’t a racist statement.
Two things need to be noted here:
1. I doubt the AFA will take any action against Fischer. I mean the man has
•Called gay adoption “a terrible, terrible, inexcusable, inhumane thing to do to children.” (8/10/2010)
•Argued that we should”impose the same sanctions on those who engage in homosexual behavior as we do on those who engage in intravenous drug abuse.” (2/3/2010)
•Wrote: “The inescapable conclusion is that gay sex is a form of domestic terrorism.” (6/10/2010)
•Said: “Hitler discovered that he could not get straight soldiers to be savage and brutal and vicious enough to carry out his orders, but that homosexual solders basically had no limits and the savagery and brutality they were willing to inflict on whomever Hitler sent them after. So he surrounded himself, virtually all of the Stormtroopers, the Brownshirts, were male homosexuals.” (5/25/2010)
If the AFA has not put a kibosh on Fischer’s mouth after all of this, what makes anyone think that the supposed Christian group will condemn his racial slur of President Obama?
2. All of those African-American pastors and churches who are aligning themselves with the religious right need to take note. Will your “friends” will condemn Fischer’s comments or will they pretend not to notice? You need to face facts. These folks do not care about you or African-American issues. And as quick as they play you against the lgbt community, they will turn their backs on you.
One wonders how many of them think of you in the same manner that Fischer thinks of Obama.
