This time, the radio host is reveling in Trump’s call for a ban on all Muslims entering the U.S.
Taking his inflammatory rhetoric a step closer to utter fear mongering, Fischer compared a ban on all Muslims coming into the U.S. to the one he imagined happened during last year’s Ebola outbreak:
“We have got to suspend Islamic immigration until we can figure out how to stop this toxic poison coming into this country. We’re not saying all Muslims are carriers of this toxic poison, but the problem is we don’t know who is a carrier and who is not. It’s like the Ebola virus.”
“Remember when the Ebola virus hit? We simply banned travel from any country where there was an Ebola outbreak. We just said we cannot take the risk. Well, Islam is the Ebola virus of culture.”
One big flaw, Fischer.
The U.S. never actually imposed a ban on travel during the Ebola virus scare.
All the authorities did was require people fly into one of five airports, if they were coming from West African nations battling the disease.
Those locations had Ebola protocols sufficient to screen out potential carriers of the virus.
Imagine Fischer saying Judaism is the Ebola virus of culture.
Well, we would know that is just the radio talk show host pulling air out of his ear.
What if Fischer said that Christianity is the Ebola virus? Now, that starts to raise the hackles.
Fischer is well aware of the power of his words to frighten and anger Americans, and he is taking a wild power trip.
