Bryan Fischer is the director of issues analysis for the American Family Association, which is funding Gov. Rick Perry’s Day of Prayer event at Reliant Stadium in Houston on Aug. 6.
Meanwhile, on Thursday night, MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell took a look at Fischer’s hatred in the context of Perry’s decision to partner with the AFA for the Day of Prayer. Peter Montgomery, a senior fellow at People for the American Way, has this to say in the video below: “In his [Fischer’s] world, gays are Nazis who should be prevented from holding office in the United States. President Obama is a fascist dictator. The constitution does not apply to Muslims — they should be deported from the country. Native Americans deserve to be killed and thrown off their land because they didn’t convert to Christianity quickly enough. People can read our report and see that this is the kind of stuff that’s on Bryan Fischer’s show all the time, and it’s outrageous that Gov. Perry chose them to sponsor and pay for his divisive and exclusionary event.”
UPDATE: Fischer says he believes criticism of Perry’s AFA-funded Day of Prayer amounts to “a hate crime.” We’ve posted video of those remarks after the jump.
