AFA’s Bryan Fischer: ‘Obama Wants To Give America Back To the Indians’

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

IT ALL MAKES SENSE NOWThe American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer writes about important religious issues, so of course his attention today has turned to the heathen American Indians who were righteously defeated by the kind, ethical, Christian cowboys. American presidents have traditionally been pro-cowboy regarding this epic struggle. But then Barack Obama got elected. “President Obama wants to give the entire land mass of the United States of America back to the Indians,” Fischer says. “He wants Indian tribes to be our new overlords.” And what’s more, Obama is in league with the U.N., which owns property on the isle of Manhattan (formerly owned by Native Americans), to make this happen.

President Obama likes the “U.N. Declaration on Rights of Indigenous Peoples.” He says it can “help reaffirm the principles that should guide our future.”

The State Department added helpfully that although the declaration is not legally binding, it “carries considerable moral and political force and complements the president’s ongoing efforts to address historical inequities faced by indigenous communities in the United States.”

So here we have a document that never will become international law, but rather is a nice “we’re sorry” to indigenous groups. So: THE INJINS ARE GONNA TAKE OVER ALL OUR PROPERTY, INCLUDING THE PRECIOUS FOUR-WHEELERS OUT BACK IN THE SHED.

I see no reason why the president, after he leaves office, can’t submit himself to the authority of any Indian tribe he wants to. Perhaps he figures that, as an adopted Crow Indian, he will be the new chief over this revived Indian empire.

Perhaps, on the other hand, Bryan Fischer is insane.

This is, of course, an affront to Christmas. Was Jesus born in a wigwam, swaddled in corn husks, and given gifts of tobacco and moccasins by a few Indian lacrosse bros on their way to a cider kegger? NO. Save it for Thanksgiving, Obama. [AFA]

    Bryan Fischer = fuck head. (sorry, he pisses me off).

    • Gleem_McShineys

      Yes! You should apologize, for that kind of language is obscene!

      Obscenely polite, considering what kind of deserving epithets you should rain down upon this ambulatory fucksack of leaking asshole disorders and congealed jackal jizzum, which leaves endless sickly stains (or 'editorials') upon his purported religion and species, under the name of Bryan Fischer.

  • SorosBot

    The Indians don't deserve the land anyway, since when Jesus came to them after his crucifixion these descendants of the lost tribes of Israel didn't listen to his teachings.

      Okay, SorosBot, step away slowly from The Book of Mormon and no one will get hurt.

      Well, and he nuked 'em all at the time, too.

  • ttommyunger

    This moron gets nuttier every time he opens his piehole. Naturally, since he is rabidly anti-Obama, there will be those who will hang on his every verbal bowel movement, but I absurdly continue to hope that he or his supporters will somehow develop a sense of shame and simply go away. Silly me.

    Indians (to Fischer): We don't want it back.

    • StillGoinGreen

      Indians (to Obomber): "Can't you just bomb Canada and give that to us?"

  • SexySmurf

    Bryan's not blaming the gays for this? He must be slipping.

      Don't get him started on the gay Indians.

        Gotta admit it, those headdresses are fabulous!

    I for one welcome our new Indian overlords and look forward to job retraining so I can play a productive role in our new casino-based economy.

    Hell, *I* want to give America back to the Indians.

    • Mahousu

      Seeing as the Indians haven't even been able to do much with the American League recently, I have my doubts that they're ready for all of America. Sorry.

      • blinky_twinkie

        Seriously? Dude, they were here before we showed up, and even though they weren't a single entity or tribe but hundreds, they still as a people with similar values did MUCH better with an entire continent for at least a thousand years than we have in only two hundred and fifty years. Indigenous people didn't wipe out the North American buffalo or leave people to rot and starve in their own filth on a regular basis. Believe me, if they're not handling their own very well right now, that's as much OUR fault as it is theirs. (And I'd still trust this country in the hands of the American League sooner than I would Mitch McConnell, thank you very much.)

    I like this trend. I think Obama should be the new Redskins' QB.

    Actually, giving the land back to the Indians could solve the coyote infestation problem. The coyote population has grown because its natural preditor, the native American, has diminished.

  • Blendergoathead

    I, too, will welcome our new, indigenous overlords, on one condition – we get to tie Bryan Fischer (and every teabagger we can find) to the ground somewhere on the Great Plains and run them over (repeatedly) with herds of buffalo (or monster trucks, if we can't find any more buffalo).

    And the entire NRO staff. Also.

      Historical claims of indigenous American tribes supported by mountains of irrefutable evidence that Fischer doesn't even deny = bad. Historical claims of indigenous Israeli tribes made up of ludicrous nonsense some Bronze Age cultists pulled out of their asses = good.

      Just to clarify.

  • SayItWithWookies

    You'd think after more than five hundred years of being hunted like animals, forced off their land, wiped out, betrayed, swindled, raped, robbed, forced to walk to their new homes in tractless wastelands, abandoned and forgotten, it would be the Indians who would be bitter and resentful. But no, it's the white dude. Go fuckin' figure.

    • V572625694

      They learned it from Rush & Co. Even when the repubes had the White House, the entire Congress and bunch of hacks on the Supreme Court in their stable, they were still acting all butt-hurt about how mean the liberals were to them. Alaskunt is the world's champion victim-whiner, sort of the apotheosis of the entire process.

    • mumbly_joe

      You forgot "kidnapped and sent to re-education camps".

      I mean, compared to the rest of the genocide things, it does pale a bit, but let's at least be comprehensive here.

      Christy: How can I help you today?

      Don: I was recently reading in the AFA blog about how Obama is going to give America back to the Indians and the UN.

      Don: I assume becasuse he is a Muslim.

      Regarding a DVD product called What Hath Darwin Wrought, the sell lines include this nugget: "Charles Darwin loved his wife and children. He paid his taxes and he never kicked his dog. But Charles Darwin had a big idea, and ideas have consequences."

      Why are there never any notable consequences for believing in Jesus?

      • V572625694

        Never kicked his dog? Even when he woke up late at night and had to stumble down the hall to the bathroom, if he had one?. I doubt it.

        These people will believe anything. Except science.

        • DoktorZoom

    The Indians have already taken half our shitty jobs, so taking over wouldn't be too tricky; besides, they make good movies, seem to have a more functional disfunctional democracy than we do, and most importantly produce the world's hottest women, so I for one welcome our new Indian overlords.

    Has this guy not read the Book of Mormon? Everyone knows that those three unaccounted for days were when Jesus came to North America and taught the Indians about horse back riding.

    Do we not have a thread to vote for worst Xmas music, or have I just been reading V17345463737474392846583902384's complaints about Little Drummer Boy so many times that it seems like it? Whatever. This is an ethnic one, so right on topic about Indians and so forth.

    Fuck Feliz Navidad and the mormon horse Jose Feliciana rode in on. Fuck that song completely. It's like the only ethnic song whoever chooses crap Xmas music knows and they stick it in the grotesque soundtrack every 3rd or 4th song for cultural diversity, or something. MAKE IT STOP!

  • http://hong-kong-actresses.blogspot.com/ donner_froh

    Even if Bryan Fisher was something other than a lying sack of shit, it is clear that his article is either the product of a diseased mind or just some random words that someone at AFA formed into sentences.

    The tip-off is the reference to the U.N. If you have ever dealt with the U.N. or if you know anyone who has ever done so then you know that the best way to make sure nothing will happen on an issue is to involve the United Nations.

My only question is, if the Republicans have become crazier and crazier with each generation what does that say about the x-er neanderthals or the y neanderthals? Shall I be prepared for big laughs or the election of a president who's so crazy he or she nukes Russia because they don't celebrate Christmas the "right way"? Or should I just assume that Republicans aren't any crazier now (after all the John Birch Society and Phyllis Schafly et. al did exist before now) and just look forward to many more good laughs at these idiots over the years?

  • Rotundo_

    You would think the AFA would be a little embarassed by this sort of idiotic commentary. I would have shown the dumbass the door when he went off on killing off all the grizzly bears.
