Fischer: Obama ‘Danced on Graves of AIDS Researchers’

Bryan Fischer predictably freaks out over President Obama noting that a number of AIDS researchers died in the Malaysian airliner that was shot down over the Ukraine. Apparently, Obama should have condemned all gay people while he did it.

About 100 AIDS researchers died a tragic death in the Malaysian airliner disaster. They were on their way to an international conference devoted to the subject of dealing with the AIDS epidemic.

President Obama, taking a page out of the Alinsky-ite “never let a good crisis go to waste” playbook, shamelessly and tackily used the occasion to promote the legitimacy of sexual deviancy.

Here are the president’s remarks about the deceased AIDS researchers (emphasis mine):

“These were men and women who had dedicated their own lives to saving the lives of others, and they were taken from us in a senseless act of violence. In this world today, we shouldn’t forget that in the midst of conflict and killing, there are people like these. People who are focused on what can be built, rather than what can be destroyed. People who are focused on how they can help people they’ve never met. People who define themselves not by what makes them different than other people, but by the humanity that we hold in common.

“The United States is going to continue to stand for the basic principle that people have a right to live as they choose, that nations have the right to determine their own destiny, and that when terrible events like this occur, the international community stands on the side of justice and on the side of truth.”

What the president said was perfectly appropriate until he stood on the graves of these researchers and lurched from compassion to advocacy for a dangerous and destructive lifestyle.

Yeah, I’m sure that’s exactly what those AIDS researchers would have said. I’m sure the thing they would be upset about is that Obama was on the side of LGBT equality. Because as we all know, AIDS researchers hate gay people as much as Fischer does.

    The United States is going to continue to stand for the basic principle that people have a right to live as they choose,

    Isn’t that one of the major reasons for the establishment of the United States and doesn’t that idea sort of permeate the constitution? And isn’t that why Fischer is allowed to live as he chooses?

  2. Synfandel says

    I’ve read that a few times now and I don’t see any grave standing or lifestyle advocacy. What’s Fischer talking about?

  3. dingojack says

    Actually about 20 people on their way to a AIDS conference in Melbourne died, not one hundred.

    “Those people that we lost on that plane gave their entire lives to the proposition that our common humanity matters a hell of a lot more than our differences’’ – Bill Clinton.
    Hear hear.

    Apparently, Fischer thinks everyone is as big a moral moron as he is, and views it is his duty to crudely use a tragedy like this as part of his petty political agenda even though those researchers were out to help everyone who has AIDS, gay and straight alike.

    Every time you think he can’t crawl deeper …

    @ Synfandel #4
    The grave standing is just trying to show Obama to be a terrible person.
    On the other part F is so sensitive to the issue that any mention of freedom, liberty, or choice, causes this reaction. Like a red flag in front of a bull.
    I’m surprised that he didn’t also bring up pro-choice, it would’ve been a twofer.

  6. D. C. Sessions says

    I’ll also note that at the recent Medal of Honor ceremony, Obama didn’t deliver a sermon on the blasphemous evil of the Homosexual Lifestyle.

    You know what that means, don’t you?

    PS: when did Fisher join the Westboro Baptist Church?

  7. Jeremy Shaffer says

    Synfandel at 4- It isn’t so much what Fischer is talking about as much as where he’s talking from.

  8. magistramarla says

    I knew this was coming, but I expected it to be Pat Robertson first.
    I’m sure he’ll chime in soon.

    All of this gay hatred is unnerving.

    These are same idiots who say I don’t hate gay people, I just don’t think they should be able to marry. It’s not that I hate them, it is because it is a sacred union between a man and a woman.

    If you don’t hate them, then why would you put legislation in place that prevents them from equal treatment in the eyes of the law.

    Hate equals hate. Laws that discriminate equal discrimination. It really is that simple.

  10. Joe Mama says

    As if Bryan Fischer gives a rat’s behind about those AIDS researchers. I’m actually surprised he didn’t claim that the shootdown was God’s will because those evil AIDS researchers were trying to find a way to stop God’s disease from punishing those evil, wicked gay people.

    @2 Kevin – in fact, male-to-male sexual transmission of HIV is the cause of a relatively small number of worldwide infections, something like 5%. The most common infection sources are straight sex, maternal transmission and straight sex.

    @5 dingo jack – I think the 100 figure came from factoring in family members traveling with the experts. Tragically a trip to Australia during school break sounded good to a lot of families.

    @10 magistramarla – you mean Robertson the SOB who agreed with Jerry Fallwell when he did dance on the undug graves of the dead not 48 hours after the 9/11 attacks and blamed those attacks on all those who didn’t follow his narrow-minded religious and political agendas? Yes that still ticks me off.

  12. says

    Dingo @ 5 ” 20 people … not one hundred”

    Since I suspect that any one of them was worth 5 Fischfuckers, the math does actually work out, from his perspective.

  13. Kevin Kehres says

    I used to attend those congresses, and they attract a wide-ranging audience of advocates, care-givers, researchers, policy makers, people living with HIV, pharmaceutical company representatives, educators, community organizers, blood bank representatives…oh heck, you name it. If it’s in any way associated with HIV care, policy, or advocacy, this is the meeting to attend.

    In Amsterdam, the biggest hit of the meeting was “Condom Man”, a guy who did performance art once or twice an hour dressed like a giant condom. Fun stuff — and free condoms!

    It would not surprise me in the least if the 5 “known” people were towing at least 95 of those others in their wake (unknowingly, of course…limited numbers of flights that everyone wants to be aboard).

    I’ll be visiting family in Boise this autumn. I wonder if I might run into Fischer at the grocery store? I wonder if I can make myself vomit on command?

  15. says

    He just had to work in a reference to Saul Alinsky, a long-dead dude who conservatives are obsessed with and most liberals have never heard of. This in order to accuse the president of promoting gayness when his words said nothing of the sort.

    Wingnuts are some sad, confused people.

  16. Pierce R. Butler says

    … the Alinsky-ite “never let a good crisis go to waste” playbook…

    Rahm Emanuel wrote Saul Alinsky’s books?

    Come to think of it, they both ran around all over Chicago a lot, but who ever saw them together?

  17. dingojack says

    Ator – when you go to Boise will you be taking the Fischer-mandated four dependents with you?
    :) Dingo

    Have the AIDS researchers even been buried yet? Or did Obama jump to the future to do the dancing, using the same time machine he willdid use to plant that fake birth certificate of his?

  19. blf says

    Have the AIDS researchers even been buried yet?

    Very unlikely. Bodies have only started to be returned from the Ukraine. (They were basically being held hostage until earlier this week.) I rather doubt there have been any funerals whatsoever, or even that any of the bodies have been released to relatives yet.

  20. dugglebogey says

    Fischer, when all you see is the homosexuality angle in every story, it means you’re gay. Time to come out of the closet dude.
