Democrats Will Tell Obama to Sit in Back of Bus, Says American Family Association (Video)

The Christian-based American Family Association radio show, "Focal Point," took a racist turn yesterday when host Bryan Fischer claimed that the Democrats would tell President Barack Obama "to sit in the back of the bus" (video below).

Fischer parroted right wing talking points that Obama's recent speech in Berlin was supposedly an "absolute abysmal, colossal failure" because his audience was with 4,500 invited guests instead of the 200,000 people who showed up at a public event in 2008, noted RightWingWatch.org.

Fischer failed to point out the obvious difference between a public and private event and did not mention that President George W. Bush was met in Berlin with 20,000 protestors in 2002.

In fact, there were more than 100 anti-Bush protests in Germany at the time, and this was before he decided to invade Iraq, reported CNN. Oddly, Fischer did not recall any of those protests either.

"What you're about to see is Barack Obama is going to be kicked to the back of the Democratic bus," Fischer said. "This guy has now become a liability... The Democratic Party is going to tell him to sit in the back of the bus. The front of the Democratic bus belongs to the white person, Hillary Clinton."

Fischer's most recent prediction was that the Boy Scouts of America would not vote to allow openly gay scout members, which it did by 61 percent.
