“Hispanics are… socialists,” that’s why they vote for Dems, religious right leader says

Huge religious right leader. Huge religious right organization. This guy is the guy all GOP presidential candidates how to bow down to after they lick Rush Limbaugh’s teat.

He’s Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association. And he has all the answers as to why Latinos didn’t vote for Republicans this past elections. You see, it’s because all Latinos come from Mexico, and Mexico is a socialist country, thus all Latinos in America are socialists.

Here’s a transcript:

“Hispanics are not Democrats, don’t vote Democrat because of immigration. It has to do with the fact that they are socialists by nature. They come from Mexico, which is a socialist country. They want big government intervention, they want big government goodies.”

Note the reference to Latinos “wanting” things.  Interesting that Fischers is using the Bill O’Reilly/Mitt Romney lie about Democratic voters wanting stuff, and being given stuff, in order to vote Democrat.  Clearly someone has spread the talking point around to the Republican party talking heads – smear Latinos and blacks, post-election, as some kind of greedy welfare queens.

Among the GOP presidential candidates, and politicians, who have gone on Fischer’s radio show in the past:

Fischer frequently hosts likely presidential candidates who are looking to make inroads among Religious Right voters. Former Minnesota governor Tim Pawlenty, former House speaker Newt Gingrich, Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann and businessman Herman Cain have all appeared on Fischer’s radio show. In addition, former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee and Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour were both guests on Fischer’s show while they were weighing runs for the presidency.

Last year at the Values Voter Summit, which was co-sponsored by AFA Action, Fischer shared a stage with Huckabee, Bachmann, former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney, Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell and Indiana Rep. Mike Pence.

Many GOP members of Congress have also been guests on Fischer’s radio show, including: Sen. Jim DeMint of South Carolina, Sen. Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma, Sen. Roger Wicker of Mississippi, Rep. Lamar Smith of Texas, Rep. Chris Smith of New Jersey, Rep. Steve King of Iowa, Rep. Jack Kingston of Georgia, Rep. Raul Labrador of Idaho, of Mississippi and Rep. Tim Huelskamp of Kansas. Among the major conservative activists who have appeared on Focal Point are Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council, David Barton of WallBuilders, Phyllis Schlafly of Eagle Forum and Amy Kremer of the Tea Party Express.

The AFA also has monetary ties to Newt Gingrich.

This guy isn’t an outlier.  He and his organization are mainstream Republican extremists who everyone in the party has to suck up to, or they get nowhere.  They cosponsor “the” annual “family values” conference that EVERYONE on the right goes to. Perry has gone, Romney, Huckabee, Bachmann, Paul Ryan as the VP nominee (Romney sent a video), and more.

Keep in mind: This guy is the reason Mitt Romney let go of his openly gay spokesman.  He has immense power in the Republican party.

Don’t get me wrong: The AFA is nuts.  But in the Republican party, the nuts are mainstream.  And the Republican party, members of Congress, presidential candidates, and former party chairman, all kneel down before the AFA’s hate.

And now today we learn, from a man treated as mainstream by GOP leaders, that Hispanics are all socialists because they all come from Mexico, which is a socialist country.

Good luck with that.

    Hispanics believe in God not in the democrat crap abortion and gay marriage is against GOD ! Stop supporting baby killers an racists like the liberal democrats

  3. Mario Leon-Torres says:

    Democrats are baby killers KKK and the biggest racists ! Truth hurts but you can;t runaway from the truth you love abortions and everything against GOD..gay marriage too and about the KKK? well even Martin L.King was a Republican !!!

  4. Mario Leon-Torres says:

    Jesus was a CONSERVATIVE , believed we should help the needy not the lazy believed in individual independents , and Jesus was pro-life and anti-gay marriage …im sick and tired of liberals who open their mouth and nothing but lies lies lies…watch out liberals God is watching but then again you don;t believe in God bunch of atheists bashing Christians…and the biggest lie when democrats say ”we believe in God” No you don’t ! God loves everyone but does not approve of gay marriage and God is against abortions..so don’t give me that crap pls liberals!

  5. Da Truth says:

    The reason why you get jobs is because you will work for 30 dollars a day and work without benefits. You don’t work any harder. You will do it for far much and unreasonably less than a non Hispanic would. That doesn’t make you a hard worker just desperate.

  6. Slick says:

    Well why don’t you pay taxes then?

  7. Karly Sanchez says:

    Hi! We down steal your jobs! We work on the jobs most of you would never be whiling to do. Like housekeeping, gardening, and crop picking. Honestly you can walk in the streets of San Francisco and the chances of seeing a hispanic homeless is slim to none. We are hard working and never give up on anything. We see an opportunity and we take it:)

  8. bill smith says:

    This is false. Nowhere in scripture will you find christians surrendering their stewardship to the secular state. Christians raised funds and met their needs without the government. Socialism entails ceding control of property and production to the state or some large central government. Even today most churches handle support locally. Christianity is about managing well what you have and freely choosing stewardship, not having some state agency force you to do it.

  9. Butch1 says:

    Why is Bryan Fischer relevant?

  10. Papa Bear says:

    Let’s face it — they want to control everyone. So they start with those they consider to be “weak”: children, gays, and women.

    Are THEY ever in for a surprise!

  11. BeccaM says:

    It’s loaded and deliberately pejorative language — never mind the fact what they’re saying isn’t even true.

    The misogynists don’t care. They just want to control women, and one of the ways they do it is by making us sound selfish, emotional, and unreasonable. And yes, their ideal is that we be submissive feminine ‘angels’, which is why they call us bitchy sluts whenever we stand up for ourselves and demand equal treatment and equal rights.

  12. colleen2 says:

    I don’t know that that is true but, even so, you think that US born citizens of Hispanic descent are included in Bryan Fischer’s denunciation and he just forgot to mention them?

  13. colleen2 says:

    I eagerly anticipate listening to priests and ‘pro-life’ physicians go on about how it’s ethical’ to kill women whose bodies cannot sustain a pregnancy. I am still puzzled as to why when a man accepts healthcare from an employer, it’s part of his compensation package and thus something he earned but when the employee is a woman it’s “free” and acceptance makes us sluts. Perhaps the more spiritually evolved Republicans will explain it .

  14. goober says:

    The majority of people in the United States who are categorized as Hispanic do, in fact, come from Mexico or are of Mexican descent.

  15. UncleBucky says:


  16. UncleBucky says:

    I am from Chicago.

  17. UncleBucky says:

    I saw Lincoln last night. And in his discussion with the telegraph operators, Lincoln talked about Euclid.

    So, if Hispanics are socialist and by his very words, Jesus was a socialist (darn near communist), then Jesus is a Hispanic and Fischer is beating up on Jesus.

    Thank you. Thank you very much. ;O)

  18. Dakotahgeo says:

    Obviously, this Fischer jerk learned nothing from the past election, so please leave him alone and he will have a huge part in making sure the Repug/TPod Parties have no future! You would think they’d learn after all TPod congresspersons were voted out, except one. Discount the fact that 20 (TWENTY) Congresspersons are female, five of which are newly elected GLBT personages!
    AND THEY STILL SPEW THIS TRASH !!! I don’t know whether to hang them or just flush them down the toilet for the crap they are… but why ruin a perfectly good sewer system? You can always use the rope over again!

  19. laprofe63 says:

    Already making friends, eh? Typical GOP incompetence. He didn’t even read the memo that says the GOP has to convert some of the “Mexicans” to their side.

  20. karmanot says:

    Exactly so!

  21. karmanot says:

    Didn’t an Oxymormon just loose the election?

  22. karmanot says:

    I am delighted to be a far leftist socialist and take great comfort that I am sponging off Republican taxes that pay my Social Security, Medicaid, local roads, schools. I’d be even happier if I could qualify for food stamps and get off this expensive cat food diet.

  23. BeccaM says:

    ¡Si – Él es muy grande loco y maldito hijo de puta!

    (With apologies if I didn’t get that quite right, as I’m still learning Spanish…)

  24. BeccaM says:

    I’m truly looking forward to hearing more Republican men go on about how rape really isn’t so bad, and in fact is turned into something truly God-ordained awesome whenever a woman is impregnated by her rapist.

  25. BeccaM says:

    Yes, but right-wing extremism HAS been mainstreamed in today’s media.

  26. nicho says:

    The bright side of this is that the more they misunderstand why people vote the way they do, the better off for us.

  27. mgreb says:

    Why do Hispanics vote democratic? If all you heard from a party about your ethnic group is a bunch of lowlifes, would you vote for that party?

  28. Naja pallida says:

    Let’s see, percentage of government benefits recipients who are white, 40%… percentage who are Hispanic, 16%. Somewhere around 350 billion dollars generated by Hispanic-owned businesses every year, but yet their average household income is drastically lower than the median. Over a million serving in the military. Yep, all begging for socialism.

    Just another ignorant bigot spewing nonsense.

  29. FunMe says:

    I love that!

    Stories should start with “Racist cracked-pot Bryan Fischer was recently interviewed … ” :-)

  30. FunMe says:

    And more losses awaiting those lunatics! Love it. Great way to throw out the trash from OUR government and let them wither away. :-)

  31. FunMe says:

    Reaaaaaaaaaaly? I didn’t know I was a socialist. Why didn’t I get the memo? Or my membership card? With member discounts, of course!

    Que estupido ese hombre! Y LOCO!

  32. Outspoken1 says:

    The core convictions of Christianity are socialist!

  33. HolyMoly says:

    “The Man Nobody Knows” by Bruce Barton (1925). But when searching for this title, I came across another (actually an insurance company pamphlet distributed to salesmen) “Moses: Persuader of Men,” author unknown. That sort of approach — companies using religion to make their workers perform, and religion using the promise of success in business to gain adherents — was pretty common in the 20s. And that twisted historical revision is still with us today, but I would venture that it’s much worse now.

  34. Russ says:

    I get the point very well, John ,but someone can’t be “mainstream” and “extremist” at the same time – better rethink what you’re trying to say there.

  35. HolySnare says:

    Psst, Mr. Fischer, don’t forget that Jesus was a socialist too. Hispanics are living in good company if you ask me.

    This nonsense got started back in the 1920s when a popular book (the name of which escapes me at the moment, but I’ll re-post when I find it) portrayed Jesus as the ultimate salesman/capitalist entrepreneur.

  36. Hm, not the only Fischer to be a racist asshole, I see. Ol’ Bobby was a real piece of work, for example.

  37. BeccaM says:

    Wow… bigoted homophobe and now obviously a frothing-at-the-mouth racist. And still the GOP conservative darlings all bow and scrape before Fischer and hit SPLC-identified hate group, the American Family (sic) Association.

    Seriously, all that’s missing are the white hoods.

  38. karmanot says:

    Why does the media give a platform or even the time of day to that racist cracked-pot?

  39. Don Chandler says:

    His views on women are also in line with republicans–total Akinite.

  40. Butch1 says:

    ” Thou shall not bare false witness against thy neighbor.”

    Does this charlatan remember anything from the book he is supposed to know? Another hypocrite speaks more political lies when he should shut his mouth and go back to his church and try praying for his own forgiveness.

  41. Keep up the smear, there’s another election just down the road.

  42. A_nonymoose says:

    What an evil, sorry excuse for a human being.

  43. samizdat says:

    “It has to do with the fact that they are socialists by nature. They come
    from Mexico, which is a socialist country. They want big government
    intervention, they want big government goodies.”

    Oh, god, that made my brain hurt. Truly, judging by the mental contortions his brain had to perform to get to this, um, logical (LOL!) conclusion, I’m surprised his small intestine didn’t reach up, wrap itself around his neck, and throttle him to death.

    h/t to Douglas Adams…

  44. chrislib says:

    I’m sick of being called a socialist, which I’m not. From now on, I’ll call reslugliCONs racist criminals, which they are since the GOP is basically a melding of the KKK and the mafia.

  45. colleen2 says:

    Most Hispanics will be puzzled to hear they come from Mexico

  46. Religious Right is an oxymoron… or a moron on oxycontin.

  47. who cares, just another religious nut, in the Repuke Party they are a dime a dozen.

  48. FLL says:

    Too late, Jeebus guy. Dallas County has already gone Democratic in recent elections, and Austin and the Rio Grande Valley have been Democratic for a while. Texas could easily turn purple in 2016. Even if the Republican presidential candidate still manages to carry Texas in 2016, Republicans will be in the very uncomfortable position of having to put up a real fight in Texas, and the Texas congressional delegation will look purple. So sad for the fundamentalist Xtians, but Texas is low-hanging fruit for the Democrats.

  49. Matt Barbot says:

    “Clearly someone has spread the talking point around to the Republican party talking heads – smear Latinos and blacks, post-election, as some kind of greedy welfare queens.”

    And also do it before the election. And in between elections.

  50. nicho says:

    The funny thing is that it’s the churches that are getting the biggest government handouts. If I didn’t have to pay income tax, state tax, sales tax, and property tax, I’d be in pretty good financial shape.

  51. J.W. Swift says:

    The “steal our jobs” meme is getting tired and has been fairly well bebunked by now, so they need a new reason for their followers to remain scared of (and angry at) the brown people. Simple. As always, it’s about hate.

  52. nicho says:

    OK, now I’m confused. The GOPidiots are saying that the Latinos want handouts. I thought they came here to steal our jobs. Which is it?
