Bryan Fischer in 2011: Black People on Welfare “Rut Like Rabbits.” Fischer Now: I Never Said That!

On his radio show Friday, Christian bigot Bryan Fischer reminisced about the time the Washington Post didn’t fact-check a story with him. As he explained, there was a time when people were spreading the rumor that he said black people on welfare “rut like rabbits” so they can get more government handouts. He would never say something like that, he told his audience.

Fischer, as usual, is lying (in the name of Jesus).

This is what he wrote in 2011, as saved by the Internet Archive:

Welfare has destroyed the African-American family by telling young black women that husbands and fathers are unnecessary and obsolete. Welfare has subsidized illegitimacy by offering financial rewards to women who have more children out of wedlock. We have incentivized fornication rather than marriage, and it’s no wonder we are now awash in the disastrous social consequences of people who rut like rabbits.

There’s no question who he’s referring to when he says “people” since he referred to them earlier in the paragraph.

When Right Wing Watch’s Kyle Mantyla noted that at the time, Fischer quickly rewrote his column to be less blatantly racist.

Welfare has destroyed the African-American family by telling young black women that husbands and fathers are unnecessary and obsolete. Welfare has subsidized illegitimacy by offering financial rewards to women who have more children out of wedlock. We have incentivized fornication rather than marriage, and it’s no wonder we are now awash in the disastrous social consequences of those who engage in random and reckless promiscuity, whether they are Caucasian, Hispanic, or African-American.

Make no mistake, we know exactly where his mind went initially. Even if he didn’t mean it that way, that’s what he wrote.

Instead of admitting that, at best, he screwed up his wording, Fischer claimed he never said it in the first place… even though the evidence is right there for the world to see.

This is what the Religious Right does with damn near everything. They’ll say trans people are bathroom predators, even though no evidence whatsoever supports that claim. They’ll say gay people choose their sexual orientation, even though no credible study says that’s true. They’ll say evolution is a hoax when evidence of it is all around us.

If you want to hear the truth, you won’t hear it on Fischer’s show, or through the American Family Association, or from Christians who take them seriously, or inside the churches they attend. They thrive on lies to the point where they believe their own deception.
