Bryan Fischer Literally Demonizes Michael Brown, Saying He was Demonically Possessed

Bryan Fischer reacted to the grand jury’s decision not to indict Darren Wilson in the Ferguson, Missouri shooting of Michael Brown, by saying that “the chances were very good…there was a demonic presence…inside Michael Brown’s body.”

Officer Wilson said, ‘Look, this guy was so big, he was massive, he was inside the patrol car,’ and here’s the analogy he used. He said, ‘The only way I can describe it is I felt like a five-year-old holding on to Hulk Hogan.’ And another time he says, ‘The only way I can describe it, it looks like a demon. That is how angry he looked. He comes back toward me again with his hands up’…He says, ‘When I looked at his face I didn’t see his face. I thought I was looking into the eyes of a demon.'”

Darren Wilson said “the only way I can describe it” in both cases, which is obviously untrue since he described Michael Brown as both Hulk Hogan and a demon. So there is that problem. Most of us at this point might laugh and say, Officer Wilson, which were you fighting? Hulk Hogan or a demon? One contradicts the other, after all.

Not Fischer. He looked at the camera and said, “I think the chances are very good that he was. I think that at this point there was a demonic presence that was operating inside Michael Brown’s body, activating him, energizing him, driving him forward in this homicidal rage. So when he says he looked like a demon, I think that’s because he was looking into the eyes of a demon that was driving Michael Brown to do what he did.”

No, we haven’t come as far from 17th century Salem as we’d like to think.

So yes, here we have Bryan Fischer, director of issues analysis at the American Family Association, making his analysis that Michael Brown was possessed by a demon at the time Darren Wilson gunned him down in the street.

Bryan Fischer is literally demonizing Michael Brown.

Honestly, you are not going to find better than this coming from the AFA in the wake of the grand jury decision. AFA news editor Fred Jackson said on the Sandy Rios in the Morning Show, that Michael Brown’s “sense of entitlement” is to blame for his death, because, you know, that’s a crime and it carries a capital penalty (if so, a lot of corporations need to be gunned down, starting with the fossil fuel industry):

We have to get back to the reality, there are moral truths and when people break those moral truths and decide to violate them, there are consequences. On that day, August 9th in Ferguson, Missouri, when Michael Brown went into that convenient store and stole that box of cigars, he was making a moral decision. Now no one knows what was in Michael Brown’s head that day but one could speculate that he believed he was above being told he should not steal, he was above getting any consequences for his actions. He went on to assault police officer Darren Wilson. He believed, Michael Brown, apparently, that he was allowed to do that. It is that mentality of entitlement, that mentality that says ‘you have your truth, I have mine,’ that I believe is at the core of this.

He went on to say, basically, that this is how God wanted it, because “God says there will be consequences”:

What we’ve been talking about this morning: the existence of absolute truth, and that is what’s under attack today. Absolute truth is defined by scripture, the Bible, God’s word, that’s how it’s defined and when you violate that, there are consequences. Now you may get away with it for a while, for a period, but God says there will be consequences. Both our callers, I think, addressing the crux of the problem here this morning is the family, is the breakdown of the family. When you do not have a dad figure around there is not someone there in authority to demonstrate there are consequences to violating the rules. If you don’t have that presence in the family, you’re going to have problems.

Now I’m not a fake Christian, but I don’t have to be one to know that if you kill somebody, you keep that family from being together. In other words, gunning down our citizens isn’t a way to promote family values or even families. Then again, I’m not an ignorant, racist cracker.

Talking to conservatives about the death of Michael Brown and the failure to indict Darren Wilson, is an exercise in futility. This is a point that was driven home while I was talking to a conservative acquaintance yesterday. He told me, “if only that kid hadn’t stolen those cigars.” I tried to explain to him that the store owners never said they were robbed. They didn’t call 911 to report a robbery. They didn’t even identify the suspect as Michael Brown.

That’s all assumed.

Of course I’m thinking, “If only Darren Wilson hadn’t gunned him down.” I tried to point out that even assuming somebody you stop is guilty of a crime, you, as a police officer, are not judge and jury. You don’t get to gun them down. That isn’t how the justice system works.

Though, of course, as we have seen, the justice system doesn’t work when you are a young black man. I, as a white man, could have crossed that same street, likely with nothing more than a simple admonition to get to the sidewalk. I would still be alive today.

As a commenter on YouTube said a few months ago, of the footage purporting to show the robbery, “Apparently the penalty for ALLEGEDLY stealing cigars and being black is now death.”

Even had I stolen cigars, I would still be alive today.

Because I am white.

I gave my conservative acquaintance the video showing that Michael Brown was killed over a hundred feet away from the squad car. His response was, who are these guys? Why are they doing this at night? If it’s true, why isn’t it on the news?

Fox News didn’t show it, so it must not be true, in other words.

He complained of the looting. He said, “If they are so angry, why don’t they burn down the police station instead of some poor guy’s store?” Before I could tell him you can’t indict an entire community on the basis of an actions of a few, he went on to say, “They take everything. They take all the beads. Black chicks will do anything for beads.”

No, I don’t think demonic possession is the problem here. I think we all know what the problem is.

  1. It’s easy for cowards to demonize their perceived threats.

    But why should we have cowards as cops?

  2. Considering the source and how much the lady doth protest usually, the bigger surprise here is that Fischer did not call Brown “gay.”

  3. Bryan Fischer needs to STFU. Black skin does not mean brain dead monster. You are what this killer counted on a scared to death white man who belives that black people are the bogey man. Get a grip, and admit you are like officer Wilson are a racist. You see black people as less then human.It is my hope that Officer Wilson, burns in Hell!!!!

  4. One word in german…backpfeifengesicht!..I picked it up means a face in bad need of a fist.

  5. Bryan, and those bullets you spoke of are compliments of the NRA!!! Every time a bullet is fired the NRA gets their tithe. The NRA is responsible for every murder with a firearm not only in this nation but all the countries that get illegal shipments of guns from the USA, including the Mexican drug cartels who are being supplied by the very arms manufactures that your local gun nut relies on for their proxy penis’s. The NRA cares not! they have blood on their hands and blood money in their pockets!

  6. How about the part where he said if you don’t have a father around this is what happens. I think Michael Brown had his father in his life, the stereotypes are just so ingrained in these people, it’s pitiful.

    I think we’re screwed in this country. I try to be an optimist, but I think the right-wing has effectively taken over. I have been taking a lot of people off of my Facebook friends list, some people I’ve known for a long time have surprised me lately, there is a lot of hate out there and I put the blame squarely on the right-wing and the so-called Christians.

  7. And again we have cowards who vote No Way on Common Sense, Truth, and FACT! Perhaps they realize they cannot win a debate so they just drop their turds here trying to stink up the place. Typical Conservative cowards, we should expect nothing less than their worst.

  8. Fisher has a bad case of womb envy.
    The whole ‘man in charge’ fetish. How does that fit with ‘hunters’ and ‘cowboys’ ‘Crusaders’ and a world without women? How can men be in charge of anything when they are not there?
    I suspect women sent men out to hunt to get them out from underfoot. Keeps them from resenting the fact that they can’t reproduce themselves, they can’t bring forth a new life. They’re damn good at ending it, though. Not a good role model.

  9. 12 shots…..6 hits. A 50% “success” rate at a very large object advancing towards you. Does anyone connect the dots here with so called “training”?

  10. We were told this week that two wrongs make a right. Michael Brown was only 18 years old. He was no saint. He disobeyed a Police Officer. He struck a Police Officer. He broke the law and he should have been punished, not murdered. He should have been given a chance to reform himself through the proper channels of a justice system we’re supposed to trust. Instead, he was given a death sentence in the middle of the street. Michael will never see a day in court for his wrongs- and neither will Officer Darren Wilson for his. I was compelled to create a portrait of Michael in memoriam at to stand in solidarity with the people of Ferguson and families who’ve lost their children to sentences passed by cops in the streets.

  11. There was one witness who walked with Michael Brown and he told it all, not as Darren Wilson told it!

    However, we have seen the enemy — hate, racism, prejudice and those like Bryan Fisher who speak the same language as he. This needs to stop.

    We are all children of God — brothers and sisters!

  12. these are the same ass hats who don’t believe in science, evolution, climate deniers. But believe in Demons, angels the right they were given to rule the stupid, poor of color. WELL PLAYED THOSE WITHOUT SOULS.

  13. The cop had #1 a gun, #2 pepper spray, #3 a billy club, #4 a taser, and #5 a car and radio. If he was so worried all he had to do was roll up the window and lock the doors. He wanted to kill that man child with all his heart, he just had to come up with a story to cover the fact he was a pussy. Plain and simple, we don’t need prejudiced cowards carrying guns period.

  14. Why in the hell would a cop let himself be beaten to death. It was kill or be killed. What is so hard to understand this.

  15. Beaten to death? You are so stuck on stupid I cant even insult your racist ass!
    This is your hero being beaten to death

    But then again maybe he should have been attacked by a pretzel

  16. Oh and BTW IDIOT….
    Nancy Grace Goes Off on Darren Wilson: ‘It Doesn’t Add Up!’
    Nancy Grace joined CNN’s Brooke Baldwin to discuss the Ferguson grand jury decision Wednesday afternoon and she had a lot to say about Officer Darren Wilson’s version of the story, which has finally come out through his testimony and interviews. According to her, the whole thing “doesn’t add up.”
    “When people say, it does not add up, I will tell you what doesn’t add up, these photos,” Grace said, holding up copies pictures of Wilson’s face after the shooting. “I’ve looked at a them, I’ve studied them, and I was expecting to see his face mangled.” She added, “He doesn’t even have a bruise. right? It’s red. He’s got a red mark!”
    “Look, do you know how many times I have sided against a cop?” Grace asked. “Never. But to me, this is bigger than a badge. And I don’t like speaking out against a cop, but this doesn’t add up.”

  17. There are most evil racists in the Christian Church than any other religion and Fischer, the unhinged and callous bigot is a great example!
