Craziest Conservative of the Day: Bryan Fischer

It almost sounds like a joke -- until you realize that this guy's insane (in a right-wing theocratic sort of way):

Bryan Fischer really hates it when animals attack. Like, hates it so much that he thinks we'd be better off without them.

Which is why Fischer, who is the "Director of Issues Analysis" for the conservative Christian group the American Family Association, wrote a blog post today called "A hot dog on two legs -- time for open season on Yellowstone grizzlies," in which he refers to Grizzly Bears as a "curse" and says that "it's time" for the grizzlies to go.


Fischer posted the piece on his "Rightly Concerned" blog, which is "a project of the American Family Association." 

He's apparently concerned about the high number of bear-on-human attacks in Yellowstone this year:

"One human being is worth more than an infinite number of grizzly bears," Fischer writes. "Another way to put it is that there is no number of live grizzlies worth one dead human being. If it's a choice between grizzlies and humans, the grizzlies have to go. And it's time."

He continues: "Of course there is a simple answer: shoot these man-eaters on sight."

Actually, this fucking shithead isn't worth a single hair on a grizzly's back. (And they're not "man-eaters," and resorting to the Bible, as he does in his piece (of course), only makes him look even more stupid.)

And don't think Fischer's just some fringe figure:

Fischer is a favorite of social conservative Republicans, and even spoke at the Values Voter summit this fall alongside Mitt Romney, Jim DeMint, and other big-name Republicans.

And -- surprise, surprise -- he hates Muslims, too:

Many also know him for having suggested that there should be "no more mosques, period" in the U.S. because "every single mosque is a potential terror training center or recruitment center for jihad."

No wonder he's so popular on the right. 


As Rachel Maddow notes, "not even Sarah Palin advocates shooting animals for the sake of wiping them off the face of the earth -- and especially not grizzlies." 

It's time for Stephen Colbert to get over his (satirical) fear and come to the bears' defence against this sort of abject craziness.

  • The parallels between "conservative" thought and Maoism keep haunting me. I remember when, during the Cultural Revolution, it was decided to exterminate wild birds because they ate too much. Of course the plague of bugs and attendant disease arrived in Biblical fashion.

    So Ban the Bear. It has a ring to it.

    This is what you get with a movement that comes from the people rather then from a republic with checks and balances. The kind of thing the baggery wants to get rid of.
