Bryan Fischer believes ‘evolutionists’ should be ‘disqualified from holding political office’

Published

on

On his Internet-only radio show Focal Point on Wednesday, Bryan Fischer, the national spokesman for the American Family Association, claimed that no man can be trusted with political power unless he is a creationist.

Fischer was discussing the recent Pew Research Center poll that indicated declining support for the theory of evolution among self-identifying political conservatives.

He began by claiming that the United States was a Christian nation, because the founders wrote “that we are created — we are not evolved — beings. It’s right there in the Declaration of Independence.”

“‘All men are’ what?” he asked. “All men are ‘created’ equal, not all men are ‘evolved’ equal.”

According to Fischer, so fervently did the founders believe that man is “a created being, not an evolved one that rose from a swamp,” he suggested that “if a politician…is an evolutionist, he is disqualified from holding political office in the United States of America, because he does not share the political world view that established the United States of America.”

“I’m not saying there should be a law prohibiting [evolutionists] from running for public office,” he continued. “I’m saying that the American people shouldn’t vote for him, because if that man doesn’t believe we are created beings…he cannot be trusted to protect your civil rights, because he doesn’t believe your rights come from God.”

“So I want to submit to you,” he concluded, “that there is no man that can be trusted with political power — no man, not a single one, not anywhere on the planet, who can be trusted with political power if he thinks we are descendents of apes, rather than the creation of God.”

Jeffrey Epstein wasn’t even a competent investor: report

Published

on

There can be no doubt that high-powered hedge fund manager Jeffrey Epstein would rather the public know him for his prominence and success as an investor than for the allegations of child sex trafficking, for which he has now been indicted and faces life in prison. And there has for years been mystique surrounding Epstein's business — his wealth fund is so exclusive that it reportedly requires a billion dollars up front from clients.

But according to the Dow Jones' periodical Barron's, Epstein may not even be good at that.

Jon Stewart blasts ‘abomination’ of Rand Paul trying to ‘balance the budget on the backs of’ 9/11 responders

Published

On Wednesday's edition of Fox News' "Special Report," comedian and activist Jon Stewart slammed Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) for blocking unanimous consent for a bill to support health care for 9/11 first responders.

"Pardon me if I'm not impressed in any way by Rand Paul's fiscal responsibility virtue signaling," said Stewart to anchor Bret Baier, who appeared on the show with first responder and activist John Feal.

He added that Paul's complaint, that the bill was unfunded, rings hollow given that he "added hundreds of billions of dollars to our deficit" with the GOP tax cuts for billionaires. He castigated Paul for trying to "balance the budget on the backs of the 9/11 first responder community."

Republicans will never say that racism is ‘racism’ — basically because they’re racist

Published

on

Is there any expression of racism that Republicans will actually admit is racism? It's a question on a lot of progressive minds in the wake of Donald Trump demonizing female congresswomen of color with the "go back" canard that white nationalists and other assorted racists have long used to abuse anyone with heritage they dislike, whether that heritage is Jewish, Irish, Italian, African, Latin American or Muslim. Telling someone to "go back" is, in the ranks of racist statements, right up there with calling a person the N-word or some other rank slur. Yet, there still appears to be resistance among Republicans to admitting that is racism, which leads many on the left to wonder: If this doesn't count, then what could possibly count?
