Despicable

The only reason I’m posting this story is to prove the depths of depravity of the far right.

Bryan Fischer, the “Director of Issues Analysis” for the conservative Christian group the American Family Association, was unhappy yesterday that President Obama awarded the Medal of Honor to a soldier for saving lives. This, Fischer wrote on his blog, shows that the Medal of Honor has been “feminized” because “we now award it only for preventing casualties, not for inflicting them.”

He actually sounds like he’s sorry that Staff Sgt. Salvatore Giunta wasn’t killed in order to win his Medal of Honor.

I would say that Mr. Fischer is one sick bastard, but there are plenty more where he came from.

Fischer is a favorite of social conservative Republicans, and spoke at the Values Voter summit this fall alongside Mitt Romney, Jim DeMint, and other big-shot Republicans.
