Bryan Fischer Award Nominee: Bryan Fischer


Yes, once again Bryan Fischer manages to win his own award by displaying his total inconsistency and hypocrisy when pontificating on political subjects. On a recent episode of his radio show, he explained why Obama so often violates the Constitution:

Fischer: In Derrick Bell’s view, and I believe Barack Obama shares this view, this is his mentor, this is his hero, this is a man he idolized, he opened his heart and his mind to the thinking of Derrick Bell, Derrick Bell said the Constitution is fatally illegitimate, it has no moral authority and therefore it does not need to be obeyed. This is why President Obama feels completely free, I believe, to utterly ignore the constraints of the Constitution, he believes it’s a racist document, he believes therefore it is illegitimate and he can ignore it at will. That’s where these recess appointments come from and obviously Eric Holder at the Department of Justice, he’s drunk deeply from the well of critical race theory.

And he has a point, Obama really does violate the constitution a lot. But he does so in all of the exact same ways that Bush did. So why did Bush do it? Because he thinks the constitution is racist too? Or maybe it’s because all presidents seek to expand their own power. That doesn’t excuse what Obama has done in the least; he’s been absolutely terrible when it comes to constitutional issues. But it makes Fischer’s explanation absolutely moronic. Which is not surprising since Fischer is, in fact, a moron.

    Shouldn’t he be excluded from winning the award named after him? Surely he must have an unfair advantage over everyone else

    Ah yes, Dubya did always strike me as an outspoken proponent of critical race theory. That he was an admirer of Derrick Bell makes perfect sense.

    …this is his hero, this is a man he idolized, he opened his heart and his mind to the thinking of Derrick Bell…

    That there sounds like righteous baloney to me. Oh, and the rest of it too.

  4. Ouabache says

    he believes it’s a racist document…

    To be fair, the original version of the Constitution was pretty damn racist and sexist.

    In Derrick Bell’s view, and I believe Barack Obama shares this view….

    In other words, we can’t find anything Obama himself actually said that is explicitly incriminating, so we’re going to take something someone else said (and mangle it beyond recognition if necessary) and ascribe it to Obama.

    By the way, other than Bell and Obama are both black lawyers, is there any connection between the two? For example, did they happen to attend the same dinner or something?

    Hence the 13th, 14th and 15th amendments. It bugs me that the “originalists” and others overlook the legal meaning of the civil war.

  7. Didaktylos says

    BTW – are you ever going to announce a winner, or will it just be an ever-expanding nominees’ list?

    @Chiroptera
    I think he introduced him at a rally and then even hugged him.

    (If I could add a CSS style, I would also let it blink.)

    Obama is the first President in the history of our country to look askance at admitted war criminals well within his jurisdictional capacity to prosecute, while simultaneously sending unmanned drones half way round the world to bomb even marginally suspected foreigners. Bush began by denying the demonic processes he had unleashed and yet ended up brazen enough to go bragging about it later on Sunday morning TV, long after the crime had been fully exposed by the media. Bush authorized torture on an innocent population based on lies about mushroom clouds. Obie is now exposed to war crimes charges for failing to prosecute those ADMITTED TORTURERS! Never forget that the WMD lie was forged on the lie of Nigerian Yellowcake which was (even at the time-Joe Wilson) known to be based on badly forged documents. So Iraqi torture was all necessarily based on the hunt for nothing. But that doesn’t matter. Torture under any circumstances run directly counter to human rights and are a danger to rationalists in particular given the murderous rage of modern US Christianists. You are one Santorum or Sarah presidency away from government sponsoring torturing the names of homosexuals out of the godless masses. Lately, Obie has set the federal dogs on the medical marijuana community in California, a direct breach of 2008 campaign promise, and a shocking example of Fed power over-reach on an issue settled by state law, culture and informational awareness. The sad truth? Obie is still the best…lol…hope. How sad is that?

    @Hercules Grytpype-Thynne:

    It should also be noted that recess appointments are specifically mentioned in the Constitution, although originally, they were intended to allow important positions filled in the days when Congress was only in session every other year. In modern times, presidents have used them to get people appointed when there was strong resistance to them in the Senate.

    Of course, Obama’s use of recess appointments is totally different from Bush’s appointment of people like John Bolton, who, even with a strong republican majority couldn’t get confirmed as the White House’s doorman, because well, blackety-black-black-black.

    While this is true, it should be noted that: 1) A broken campaign promise is not a violation of the Constitution and 2) He does have a ruling written by the conservatives on the SCOTUS to back up the idea that federal law trumps state medical marijuana laws because states rights totally do not apply to pot smoking hippies.

    As a fan of old Bugs Bunny cartoons, I prefer to use the word “Maroon,” rather than moron. It just seems more “risque!”

    Plus I must add a quote by one of my favorite people, Jerry Garcia, who stated: “Voting for the lesser of two evils, is still voting for evil!” Now some folks may say that many people have said this through the ages, but I heard him say it in an interview and in this day and age it’s so apropos!
