AFA Hate Group Leader Bryan Fischer: Todd Akin is the Rape Victim - VIDEO


Bryan Fischer, never one to miss a chance to paint a right-wing oppressor as a victim, does the same with Todd Akin, Right Wing Watch reports:

After likening the backlash to Todd Akin’s comments on “legitimate rape” to the Pharisees’ persecution of Jesus, American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer is now comparing Akin to a victim of rape. After listing the growing chorus of conservative activists and media personalities who have called on Akin to quit the senate race, Fischer lamented that “everybody is gang tackling Todd Akin.” “You talk about a forcible situation, you talk about somebody being a victim of forcible assault, that would be Todd Akin,” Fischer maintained.

Pat Robertson, too, is rushing to Akin's defense.

  2. I'm beginning to think he's a performance project, like Colbert and maybe Ann Coulter.

  3. The battle lines are drawn.
    We know where we stand in the up coming elections.
    No decent woman, gay, no minority of any class colour creed, no senior can vote Republican.
    They stand for backwardness and doctrinaire religious intolerance. The sheer mean spiritedness of Republicans alone condemns them all, yes all.

    Again I raise the question that I want answered :
    Is Paul Ryan a member of Opus Dei ?
    And following from that has he sworn to promote the religious agenda of the Catholic Church in his working life ?
    Probably no one here can answer that question.....but I hope some journalist will pick it up and run with it.

  7. Gang-tackled in a forcible assault? I wonder if it was a legitimate assault because the human body has ways of dealing with that, which means Mr. Akins can't get pregnant from it, and therefore won't need to seek an abortion.

  8. They are both barking mad. Of course, if they don't take this "position" there may be a drain off of contributions to both their "organziations"...I mean Ann "Horseface" Coulter? Really? Doughboy Rush? Really?...even those grimy wing-nuts-for pay backed off this one!
    The only meaning of Akin's apology is that he "regrets" saying what he said. Certainly he does. He believes what is is saying is right and he regrets that he got caught at it.
    Trolls, both. Shoo! Go away.

  10. How are people with as little brain matter as those two still able to function?

  11. Defend away, boys. The more you flap your traps the easier it will be to bury you hateful, detestable, execrable republicons at the polls this November. Yes, please, keep defending Todd!

  12. If he wasn't Akin before, he's Akin now! Wow, gang-banged by fellow Republicans!

    When elephants attack....

  13. I'm thinking these guys don't know what "rape" is.. it's like an extension of their general denial of the existence of sex.

  14. Considering how Mitt Romney wants Akin to quit the race, BF has to choose his words carefully.

  15. I'd watch the video, but the pictures in my head are already bad enough.
