Fischer on CNN: Likens anti-bullying program to poisoned halloween candy

Tuesday, October 16, 2012

American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer appeared on CNN today and told host Carol Costello that the Southern Poverty Law Center’s “Mix It Up at Lunch Day” program, which the AFA is protesting, is “toxic” to the “moral health” of students, much like “poisoned Halloween candy” injected with cyanide.

Watch:

After Fischer did his normal routine of arguing that Hitler was gay and that the Stormtroopers were largely comprised of gay members while making wild claims about the supposed dangers of homosexuality, Costello abruptly ended the interview, adding, “thanks for sharing your views, I guess.”

  3. Bryan Fischer is a monster. When is CNN providing equal time to the SPLC or other organizations that oppose Hate Groups like his “American Family Assocaition”?

  8. He lives in a world of fables and fantasies. He is a dangerous man as he can influence people who are already ‘out of touch’ with reality.

  9. People just need to ignore him!

  10. It’d almost be funny if he wasn’t actually serious about believing this.

  11. Last century the good people of Germany ignored their right-wing nut jobs. It didn’t end well.

  12. Gay nazis? Lol, one can hardly compare a peaceful movement with the one that SLAUGHTERED thousands of, not amazingly enugh, gay people. Rommel was INDEED gay, but he was killed, along with his troops, long before the Holocaust.

  13. Its good to see that Fischer read Scott Lively and found his book to be sacrosanct while the rest of us realized it nothing but lies.

  19. More examples of the reasons we need to be good citizens and examples of respectable citizens. We can be the alternative to these nut jobs.

  21. Oh believe me, the fact that people like him exist is just about impossible to ignore. It’s the fact that every bit of attention they get only encourages them to spout increasingly insane stuff….and acts as fuel for the fire for those who swallow every bit of it whole.
