Video: Entirety of Internet too obtuse to glean Bryan Fischer's deep, measured meaning

by Jeremy Hooper

On Friday, internet thinkers and commentators (from all political stripes) reacted wholly appropriately when the American Family Association's Bryan Fischer suggested that the Connecticut massacre that had happened just hours earlier was due to a lack of prayer and obedience to God. But true to the same, responsibility-shirking form that the social conservative commentariat most always takes when called out for their rhetoric, Fischer is now pretending that everyone who reacted to him (and fellow shunner of the prayer-less, Mike Huckabee) was somehow twisting the verbatim words that went out into the public ether. Here's Ficher's response, complete with all of the usual tactics these folks always use (e.g. they are the "victims"; everyone who responded was overheated and nasty; we're all too ignorant to understand their hidden meaning; etc) when responding to accountability:

The problem is not an imbalance of understanding—it's an imbalance between Mr. Fischer's willingness to dish it versus his ability to take it. That's what's so maddening.
