Bryan Fischer, a leader of the anti-gay hate group the American Family Association, returns to the list once again, for rehashing a favorite conspiracy theory about President Barack Obama: that he is actually a secret Muslim.
Fischer’s evidence? Obama claims to be a Christian, but since he used to be a Muslim (obviously), that means that Muslim clerics should have issued a fatwa against him for committing apostasy. According to Fischer, the fact that radical Islamists aren’t trying to kill Obama is proof that “his role as the president is advancing the cause of Islam.”
Unsurprisingly, President Obama’s call for for military intervention in Syria has led to a good deal of anger and dissent on the right. There are plenty of reasons to oppose a military strike, but right-wing radio host Sandy Rios picked just about the worst one: the end of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.
On the radio show she hosts for the aforementioned American Family Association, Rios explained that the “homosexual takeover” of the military has left it unable to launch a strike against Bashar al-Assad.
“When I looked at those battleships going into the Mediterranean, supposedly getting ready for battle in Syria, I couldn’t help think about all the stories I’ve read about how women now are in the ranks of the Navy, getting pregnant at exponential numbers,” Rios said. “When I think about the folding in and the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell and the homosexual takeover of so much of our military I’m not sure how effective those naval ships will be.”
If Rios is looking for reassurance, perhaps she should have a talk with her AFA colleague Bryan Fischer. After all, as noted earlier, he makes President Obama’s hypermasculine homosexual stormtroopers sound pretty darn effective
