Romney pushed around by a Yokel

maggie2094May 8, 2012

...and unfit to be pres says that yokel. This is classic. Where do you even begin...

  • It looks like Bryan Fischer's digs at Richard Grenell, and the Romney campaign that backed him, just won't stop.

The conservative evangelist took to his radio show once again, but this time, he argues that Mitt Romney is unfit to be U.S. president because he's proven that he "can be pushed around by a yokel," Right Wing Watch is reporting.

Fischer argues, "If Mitt Romney can be pushed around, intimidated, coerced, coopted by a conservative radio talk show host in Middle America, then how is he going to stand up to the Chinese? How is he going to stand up to Putin?"

Though Romney has been quoted as saying he did not want Grenell, who is openly gay, to resign, Fischer continues, "He wanted this guy gone because there was not one word of defense, not a peep."

Previously, the American Family Association (AFA) radio host called the stepping down of Romney's national security and foreign policy spokesman less than two weeks after his initial appointment a "huge win," noting that the GOP candidate "wouldn't make the same mistake" again by appointing another openly gay man to his administration. "There is no way in the world that Mitt Romney is going to put a homosexual activist in any position of importance in his campaign."

In previous weeks, Fischer slammed Romney's decision to appoint Grenell. Describing Grenell as "out, loud and proud homosexual," Fischer noted, "What gays want is...they don't want the rights, they want the title...they are not about commitment. Homosexuals are about short-lived relationships and frequent anonymous sexual encounters...that becomes a significant issue when we're talking about pointing someone to a post as sensitive as national security and foreign policy."

, "If Mitt Romney can be pushed around, intimidated, coerced, coopted by a conservative radio talk show host in Middle America, then how is he going to stand up to the Chinese? How is he going to stand up to Putin?"

This is what I was saying on the other thread. I see Romney as a milk toast ready to do the bidding of any one or any group that he perceives will help him get his toy train.

I just reread this post and I am so confused!!!!

So he was for it before he was against it!?!? Why do I think this general election is going to be even more ridiculous than the Republican primaries? ;-)

Bryan Fischer (the conservative talk show host) is taking credit for forcing the resignation Grenell for being gay. Then he turn around and says how could Romeny be pushed around like a yokel like him.

No, you really can't make this stuff up.

Mitt Romney as president is truly terrifying!

Thanks Maggie I posted this the other day Fisher then called OBAMA a homophobe. The man & his whole crew at the AFA are psychos of the extreme right & have been hacking at Romney from day 1.
He's also become denies HIV/AIDS connection had his column on native American pulled.

" Native Americans were justifiably forced out of their land and are to this day punished with poverty and alcoholism for not converting to Christianity.

The Native American Rights Fund said Fischer's comments are "not worth dignifying with a reply," and AFA blogger Elijah Friedeman called Fischer's views "repulsive."
This guy puts the F in Freak.

The native American tribes at the time of the European settlement and founding of the United States were, virtually without exception, steeped in the basest forms of superstition, had been guilty of savagery in warfare for hundreds of years, and practiced the most debased forms of sexuality.


The Lewis and Clark journals record the constant warfare between the nomadic Indian tribes on the frontier, and the implacable hostility of the Sioux Indians in particular.

The journals record the morally abhorrent practice of many native American chiefs, who offered their own wives to the Corps of Discovery for their twisted sexual pleasure. (Regrettably, many members of the Corps, Lewis and Clark excepted, took advantage of these offers and contracted numerous and debilitating sexually transmitted diseases as a result.)

The native American tribes ultimately resisted the appeal of Christian Europeans to leave behind their superstition and occult practices for the light of Christianity and civilization. They in the end resisted every attempt to “Christianize the Savages of the Wilderness,” to use George Washington’s phrase.

They rejected Washington’s direct counsel to the Delaware chiefs in 1779, “You do well to wish to learn our arts and ways of life, and above all, the religion of Jesus Christ.”

Thomas Jefferson three times signed legislation appropriating federal tax dollars for the evangelizing of the Native American tribes. It all came to nought, as one tribe after another rejected the offer of spiritual light and advanced civilization.


God explained to the nation of Israel that because of the “abomination(s)” of the indigenous Canaanite tribes, the land had become unclean and “vomited out its inhabitants (Lev. 18:25).”

Is this to say the same holds true for native American tribes today? In many respects, the answer is of course no. But in some senses, the answer is yes. Many of the tribal reservations today remain mired in poverty and alcoholism because many native Americans continue to cling to the darkness of indigenous superstition instead of coming into the light of Christianity and assimilating into Christian culture.

The continued presence of native American superstition was on full display at the memorial service for the victims of the Tucson shooter, when the “invocation” (such as it was) was offered by a native American who sought inspiration from the “Seven Directions,” including “Father Sky” and “Mother Earth,” rather than the God of the Bible.

And just for good measure, Fischer concludes that we have become just immoral as the Native Americans and so it is only a matter of time before God empties the "slop bucket" of America:

Yep from Day one he's been after Romney constantly harping on him being a member of a cult.

During his address to the Values Voter Summit, Bryan Fischer made the same claims he always made: Islam is evil and Muslims are traitors, LGBT equality threatens freedom, and the Constitution protects only Christians (not Mormons). After posting clips from the speech of Fischer attacking gay rights and the theory of evolution, we decided to post his speech in full.

Remember that presidential candidates Herman Cain, Michele Bachmann and Newt Gingrich have all appeared on his show, along with past candidates Tim Pawlenty and Mike Huckabee. In addition, Fischer is the spokesman for the organization, the American Family Association, that co-hosted The Response prayer rally with Texas Gov. Rick Perry.

"Organizers of this weekend’s Values Voters Summit thanked Mitt Romney for his Saturday appearance by giving the slot immediately after his to a radical Christian who used his time to take veiled shots at the Mormon former governor and insist that only a true Christian can serve in the White House.

Romney, toward the end of his speech, raised the issue, wagging his finger in the air and insisting on civil debate, referencing a speaker who’d be on the stage after him. Though he didn’t mention Christian extremist Bryan Fischer by name, a Romney aide let assembled reporters know that Fischer was the man he was referring to.

"Our values ennoble the citizen and strengthen the nation. We should remember that decency and civility are values, too," Romney said. "One of the speakers who will follow me today has crossed that line, I think. Poisonous language doesn't advance our cause. It's never softened a single heart nor changed a single mind."

Fischer made a passionate case against the imposition of Sharia law in the United States, called homosexuality, among other things, a “threat to public health,” insisted that Muslims and Christians don’t worship the same God and argued that there had not been a major terrorist attack on American soil because crowds at Major League Baseball games often sing “God Bless America” during the seventh inning stretch. “Major League Baseball has converted our stadiums into cathedrals,” he said.

Romney had been backed into a corner that virtually required him to address either Fischer or Robert Jeffress, the senior pastor at First Baptist Church in Dallas. On Friday, Jeffress called Mormonism "a cult" while introducing Romney-rival Rick Perry,

“It is only faith in Jesus Christ -- in Jesus Christ alone -- that qualifies you as a Christian,” Jeffress said in remarks echoed Saturday by Fischer.

Perry said that Jeffress' introduction "knocked it out of the park.”

Yes this is an enviable character that nearly every freaking candidate beat a path to his door to be on his hate filled radio show.

Lily, you took the words right out of my mouth! How does one follow all that? It's like the circus came to town, and no one told us because they're not sure if they want to sell tickets, or what!

Romney reminds me of a clueless kid strapped to one of those child leashes you used to see eons ago... just smiling like an idiot and allowing himself to be led where ever others want him to go, saying whatever someone tells him to say, or making it up as he goes along. He's not very good at making it up as he goes along.

Yes but that guy is the voice of the AMERICAN FAMILY ASSOCIATION all those candidates sought his blessing.

The American Family Association's spokesman and Director of Issues Analysis Bryan Fischer keeps finding that his own organization censors articles he posts to the AFA's website, including one where he claimed that welfare encourages African Americans to "rut like rabbits" and one in which demanded that all immigrants must "convert to Christianity."

Now, Fischer is finding himself in trouble for an article condemning Newt Gingrich, which the AFA has yanked from its website.

Why? Because AFA founder and chairman emeritus Don Wildmon endorsed Gingrich and is a member of his Faith Leaders Coalition, and claims that only a Gingrich presidency can save Western civilization and the human race.

Fischer, who is not one to apologize, began his radio show last month to by offering "my apologies for yesterday" for the "intensity" of his attacks on Gingrich over his marital affairs, and had his post labeling Gingrich "a serial adulterer" had been pulled off the AFA's homepage.
Hes always complaining that The Muslims & the gays are trying to silence him but it's only his own AFA that pulls the voice of their organizations screeds when they become too shrill.
He's like a child that goes & tells all the families secrets

"Sarah Posner of Religion Dispatches noted in her report from October, 2010, that former AFA employees told her that "the views represented by Fischer are not only tolerated within the organization, but any opposition to its anti-gay, anti-Muslim, anti-immigrant invective, including reliance on white nativist sources in the AFA's media programs is dismissed. What's worse, former employees say, anyone questioning such attitudes as un-Christian is denigrated, and in some cases forced out."

But it is amazing how Romney remained quiet during the Voter Values Summit (such a joke) & then they position the flam thrower to speak right after him. The man who had been excoriating him from day.

This video has Romney addressing Fischer & values crowd without using his name the applause was there but weak

Rick Warren, who was chosen by Obama to kick off his Presidency.

"Warren holds conservative theological views[7] and holds traditional evangelical views on social issues such as abortion, same-sex marriage, and embryonic stem-cell research.

In a conversation with atheist author Sam Harris in Newsweek magazine, Warren spoke out against evolution and in favor of creationism.


In 2005, during the Terri Schiavo controversy, Warren stated that withholding feeding to Schiavo, a woman in a persistent vegetative state, was "not a right to die issue". He then called Michael Schiavo's decision to remove her feeding tube, "an atrocity worthy of Nazism",[33] and while speculating about Michael Schiavo's motives, put forward the idea that Schiavo wanted Terri to die because, if she regained consciousness, she might have "something to say that he didn't want said."

Two weeks before the 2008 U.S. general election, Warren issued a statement to his congregation endorsing California Proposition 8, which would amend the California Constitution to say "only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California," thereby eliminating the right of same-sex couples to marry.


In an interview with Beliefnet in early December, Warren again sparked controversy by appearing to equate same-sex marriages to marriages of siblings, multiple partners, and adults and minors."

Washington Post

"Obama has appeared twice at Warren's Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, Calif. The first time was a conference in 2006 to discuss HIV/AIDS. His second trip, in August, was viewed as a chance to reach evangelical voters. While there, Obama did say he defines marriage as a union between a man and a woman."

That's for starters on Day One.

To wrap it up on Day One, we get Joseph Lowery

"On January 20, 2009, Dr. Lowery delivered the benediction at the inauguration of Barack Obama as the 44th President of the United States of America. He opened with lines from "Lift Every Voice and Sing," also known as "The Negro National Anthem," by James Weldon Johnson.


Lord, in the memory of all the saints who from their labors rest, and in the joy of a new beginning, we ask you to help us work for that day when black will not be asked to get [in] back, when brown can stick around, when yellow will be mellow, when the red man can get ahead, man; and when white will embrace what is right."

The next day, his first full day in office, he signed documents that would close Guantanamo.

Never mind as it definitely deserves its own thread.

Fisher also said that Black people rut like rabbits.

Such "values".
