GOP’s Fav. Hate Group: End Welfare to Blacks ‘Who Rut Like Rabbits’
April 6, 2011
(ChattahBox Political News)—The Republican right-wing tea party birther base is a boiling cauldron of hate. Hate for gays, hate for liberals, hate for that socialist Kenyan usurper (scary black guy) in the White House, hate for Muslims and anyone else who doesn’t look and think like them. Republican presidential contenders, hoping to tap into some of that ugly hate vote, know where to go. Bryan Fischer’s gay-hating and Muslim-hating conservative ‘Christian” radio show. Fischer, a certified bigoted crackpot, who hates gays so much he wants to throw them in jail, and who despises Muslims so much he wants to deport them, is the director of issues analysis for the American Family Association. The Southern Poverty Law Center recently added the AFA to its list of hate groups. Fischer’s latest contribution to the fetid sewer of hate and bigotry that GOPers, such as Mike Huckabee, Newt Gingrich and Tim Pawlenty, can’t seem to get enough of, demonizes poor black families receiving welfare support. According to Fischer, Jesus wouldn’t approve of the current welfare system, because it turns black people into lazy freeloaders “who rut like rabbits.” Every reporter, every media outlet and every Democrat should force the GOP hopefuls to repudiate Fischer’s vile hate, or make them own it.
In Fischer’s latest cockamamie racist rant on the AFP’s website, he proposes that an army of “Christ-centered statesman” should “liberate people” from the anti-Christian “Karl Marx” welfare system, because it encourages black women to “rut like rabbits” and make babies (future welfare freeloaders) with “multiple fathers.” Welfare is worse than slavery, concludes Fischer because it pays black people to continue with their “random and reckless promiscuity,” on the taxpayer’s dime.
“Welfare has destroyed the African-American family by telling young black women that husbands and fathers are unnecessary and obsolete. Welfare has subsidized illegitimacy by offering financial rewards to women who have more children out of wedlock. We have incentivized fornication rather than marriage, and it’s no wonder we are now awash in the disastrous social consequences of those who engage in random and reckless promiscuity, whether they are Caucasian, Hispanic, or African-American.” [...]
“And the children are the ones who get chewed up. Welfare, as Walter Williams has pointed out, has done what slavery, racism and Jim Crow laws could not do: destroy the black family. The Christ-centered statesman puts himself in the place of a fatherless black child, sees the catastrophic damage that the meltdown of the family has caused, and pursues policies to wean people off marriage- and child-destroying welfare, and pursues policies that incentivize marriage, incentivize self-reliance rather than abject dependence, and incentivize the reconstruction of the American family.”
Think Progress recently caught up with Newt Gingrich and asked if he condemns the anti-gay hate of the America Family Association. Gingrich donated money to the hate group and has appeared on Fischer’s show. Gingrich declined to do so. He defended Fischer’s organization as a “largely a Christian based membership group,”that doesn’t “in any way think of themselves as a hate group.”
Huckabee, on the other hand, played dumb,when he was recently asked to reject Fischer’s lunatic bigotry.
If it sounds like hate, looks like hate and is officially designated as hate, then it’s hate.
