Social Conservative Bryan Fischer: Muslims Are Stupid Because Of Inbreeding

(from TPM)

Social conservative Bryan Fischer said Thursday that centuries of inbreeding has resulted in “an enormous cost in intellectual capacity” among Muslims.

Fischer, the “Directory of Issues Analysis” for the American Family Association, said on his Focal Point radio show that “Muslims have been [inbreeding] for fourteen hundred years and because this is what Muhammad did, they always will do this, they will always defend it, they will always practice it.”

“And this kind of inbreeding results in an enormous cost in intellectual capacity, intellectual quotient among the Islamic people,” he continued. “It’s just a plain fact. You can’t argue with it, it’s just simply the truth. And you get hammered for saying it, but that’s because the truth has now become hate speech, the truth has now become bigotry.”


Fischer, aside from being staunchly anti-bear, is also a frequent purveyor of anti-Islam sentiment. He once argued that the U.S. should restrict immigration of Muslims, and deport some of those already in the country. Fischer’s also said that Muslims don’t deserve First Amendment rights, and that the U.S. should havee “no more mosques, period.”

That hasn’t stopped a number of conservatives from appearing on his show (and alongside him at the Values Voter conference), including Michele Bachmann, Mike Huckabee, and Tim Pawlenty.

    He may not be right about everything but he is right about one thing get them out, if only 15% want to see you dead thats 150 in a crowd of a thousand we(North America) currently have millions. As I’ve told others I invite you bleeding hearts to attend any of their gatherings with your smiley face on, good luck to you. When your family is being blown out of restaurants or off of subways like the many incidents in Europe maybe you bleeding hearts will wake up. If you look at whats happening around the world with Muslims instead of throwing out the racist card right it may open your eyes!

    What is just as surprising is the emotive parroting of a party line against the perjorative term “inbreeding”.

    The ignorance of the whole time-line of most of Mankind’s history & diverse cultures marriage habits, including traditional Jews, Cypriots, aristocracy (the “Elite”), Darwin-Galton, Einstein & others etc. is ignored. A balanced view would consider these, plus island populations expanding massively from a limited gene pool & then apparently outbreeding, breeding pureblood thoroughbreds.

    PC appears to be driven by the current Western vogue, where for the sake of balance inbred is not constrasted with bastardization, miscegenation, degeneration of the stock, or such similar perjorative name-calling.

    The anti cousin marriage hysteria is also affected by politicking, where group cohesion of new & diverse immigrant minorities is at variance with the Huntingdonian dominant ethnic majority civilization.

    Close marriage can encourage the accumalation of positive biological characteristics as well e.g. intelligence or muscle type for athletics. How many lay persons recognise the fact that in biology a recessive characteristic does not mean biologically harmful & confuse it with the populist version? An example of a (biologically) recessive chracteristic in humans is that for blue eyes.

    For those who seem concerned about the increase in potentially harmful effects, we must put emotion aside & look at the facts & treat the results without fear or favor. Cousin marriages are similar to when an older woman has a child. The exact proportion of risk varies with the individual & is also affected by how many generations of continued recombination within of a “limited” gene pool community.

    In Islam both are permitted, & for Muslims making the halal effectively haram is just as bad as vice-versa. The examples from the lives of sacred personages also illustrates that fact. The Jewish community exemplify a similar story to the “Arabian” peoples.

    Ignorance leads to fear & hate.

    Great. Why are many of you wasting your time and energy debating Kal and Dan? They are about as smart as the people posting on Jihad Watch. Maybe less than that.

    Anyway, there has been some talk about the 1993 WTC bombing on this page. I would urge all of you to read about Emad Salem. The FBI knew what was happening and even supplied some of the materials used to make the bomb that went off. Emad, fearing that he might be blamed for making the bomb, taped his conversations with the FBI. He obviously didn’t trust them. In fact, the FBI could have stopped the bombing but chose not to.

    BTW, that’s not a conspiracy theory. That is front page of the New York Times. After he went public, the FBI put Salem in the Witness Protection Program. He hasn’t been heard from since.

    As far as inbreeding issue goes, Muslims have to become aware that this is a war to dehumanize Muslims, not only in the United States, but throughout the world. It is done to help Americans stomache the wars a little easier. It also helps Israel kill Palestinians. When you think a people is less than you, it is easier to digest their deaths.

  • sadia

    lol…they open their mouths and prove their own stupidity almost instantly! phew …i am tired of counting the increasing list of dumb, hate-filled bigots racing one another in smearing Islam and mooozlems. bryan loonie is himself proving his IQ(illness quotient!) with such utterly non nonsensical statements!
    Did he or his ‘type’ ever go to school?????

  • Salam

    I’m by no means a biologist, but inbreeding definitely have some negative side effects. It would be interesting to know whether or not it affects the average IQ, so if anyone has a reliable study on the subject I’d love to read it.

    @Zaxim: The author of that article must be inbred. It is one of the stupidest, most ignorant peices of trash I’ve ever wasted time to read. The author knows little or nothing about Islam OR Muslims. Nor does she know anything about science or genetics. For one thing: Siblings who are not twins share 1/2 or 50% of their genetic material; not 100% as ann states. First cousins share 1/8 or 12.5% of their genetic material; not half (as ann states). Secondly, first cousin marriage is not something unique to Islam or Muslims. Plenty of non-Muslims practice this as well. It is legal to marry cousins (including 1st cousins) throughout most of the U.S. and all of Europe. Thirdly, it is actually white european populations which suffer from the highest incidence and prevalence of genetic disorders. Such genetic diseases as cystic fibrosis are most common among white european populations. The Ashkenazi Jewish population is well known in the genetic field for its high incidence and prevalence of genetic disorders (as a result of centuries of inbreeding aka consanguinity). This is proof enough that this claim of “Muslim inbreeding” is nothing more than hypocritical projection (see my post above). I’m not a fan of marrying cousins, however I beleive some of the figures used in this article are very suspect. I know very few Muslims who have married their first cousins (none of my close relatives have, nor have I).

  • Zaxim

    To come back to the topic of Muslims and inbreeding. I’ve seen this around before. Namely here:

    Best line in the article: “In my education in animal husbandry”

  • marco

    “Let me know when there are Baruch Goldsteins out there trying to shoot up mosques in the West or non-Muslim versions of Shamil Basayev taking schools hostage (I remember you whitewashing the Beslan massacre on here so it’s pretty funny to accuse someone else of whitewashing).”

    Did you just ignore the part about the Jacksonville, Florida Pipe bomb last year? If the idiot hadn’t set it off outside the mosque, the loss of life and damage could have been great, and yet it never even made the headlines. Because no one gave a damn. If it happenned once, it will happen again. The anti muslim climate is getting even worse in America.

    Being openly hateful and racist against muslims/arabs is being tolerated and not condemned. You have muslims being branded anti semites and jew haters because they protest against Israeli diplomats, you have them being branded radical extremists just because they condemn American foreign policy.

    I never whitwashed anything that happenned on Beslan. That happenned because people who were hellbent on revenge against Russia for what they did to their loved ones.

    Americans were calling for blood after 9/11, so why is it strange to think these people in Chechnya who witnessed their loved ones being raped and massacred before their own eyes – not be so filled with hatred and anger?

    It was an evil act what they did, but lets not ignore why they did it, and not simplfy it down to them being Islamic extremists following their religion, which was not the case at all.

    Those acts of violence muslims are carrying out in Pakistan, Indonesia and elsewhere are the actions of ignorant people. That is not how muslims behave. Islam places a big emphasis on good character and manners, and even treating non-muslims in a respectful way.
    So waht those ignorant savages do, is Un-islamic and the government should be doing more to prosecute those involved in such actions, and deal with those irresponsible muslim leaders that deliberately stoke up tensions like this that send people on a murderous rampage.

  • NassirH

    I think it’s obvious that Muslims have it much better in the United States than Christians do in Pakistan or Egypt. That being said, the treatment of minorities in Pakistan — where most Muslims don’t have it so great either, incidentally — doesn’t justify Islamophobia in the West.

  • corey

    I nor marco were trying to turn this into a “who gets persecuted the most contest” and kal I think the act of bombing a place of worship is condemnable and the perpetrators should be punished to the full extent of the law however whenever a hate crime happens to a muslim I am not going to look at it as a “well he had it coming” moment because of something somebody else did.

  • Daniel

    I of course recognize that America, though far from perfect, has a much better track record of respecting the rights of minority religions…however, full-blown religious intolerance (with attendant violence) never emerges all at once. It begins as “peaceful” protests, hateful rhetoric (“it’s just words, right?), just random violence against religious symbols and houses of worship (“it’s not people, isn’t it?”), toleration of bigotry and silence in the face of lies…but the end still is the same.

    Certainly, I would much prefer being a Muslim in the west than. Christian in the east, in so far as my personal safety and rights. But that doesn’t mean everything’s hunky-dory here. I can’t change Pakistan or Egypt… But I can work to change America, because it’s my country, for better or worse. No reason to ignore the hate that can (and already does, to a limited extent) lead to violence and death.

  • Mosizzle

    “somehow you two idiots are convinced that Islamophobia in the West is worse than the persecution of minorities in Muslim countries”

    Although I don’t know how they feel about this, I know they didn’t say that. Marco wondered how long it would be before Muslims have to start dealing with violence considering morons like Brian Fisher are openly saying hateful stuff like this. In response to this, Kal said that this isn’t “Egypt, Pakistan, Indonesia or for that matter any other Muslim nation rife with violence against religious minorities”.

    Looking at the comments no one seems to disagree with that. Everyone agrees that Christians in Egypt and Pakistan have to deal with a lot lot more than what we have to. Marco and Corey only objected to Kal’s belief that the fears that Muslims will have to face violence in the future are “irrational”. They didn’t object to his comparison between America and Muslim countries.

    Kal then repeated the statement “However, the history of religious tolerance in America stacks up favorably compared to almost any other nation in the world, especially predominantly Islamic countries.” Once more, no one objected.

  • Dan

    @Cynic: “Obviously Muslims in the West are more concerned with Islamophobia there (as it directly affects them), than events that take place on the other side of the world. And neither are they responsible for said events like Islamophobes make them out to be.”

    Yet it doesn’t stop plenty of Muslims from bringing up Palestine, Chechnya, Kashmir, and Iraq all the time when it comes to claiming that Muslims are persecuted and justified in controlling non-Muslims, right?


    “All acts of violence are to be condemned, whereever they occur. ABut don’t try and use that as a way to white wash what is happening in the west, and the crap muslims are taking. Most muslims just want to get on with their lives in peace, but are now caught up in some kind of conspiracy on their part, to overthrow western civilization and force shariah law on to the masses.”

    Let me know when there are Baruch Goldsteins out there trying to shoot up mosques in the West or non-Muslim versions of Shamil Basayev taking schools hostage (I remember you whitewashing the Beslan massacre on here so it’s pretty funny to accuse someone else of whitewashing).

    And let’s be real, Pakistanis shouldn’t be complaining about persecution in the West when Pakistan (a country that have way too much pride over) treats its non-Muslim minorities like crap. Ever had any experience with Pakistani Christians? You know how much they hate Muslims? Gee, wonder why. You expect Christians in Indonesia to love Muslims when Muslim extremists have no problem kidnapping Christian girls and chopping their heads off only to dump their heads in bags as ‘Ramadan trophies’ or bombing their churches? A lot more churches are bombed by Muslim fanatics in their own countries but it doesn’t seem to bother you, does it? And as Kal said, did it bother you that two North Africans were arrested in a plot to bomb a NY synagogue? Even in the West you have plots involving Muslims who want to bomb synagogues still, and here you are implying that all Muslims are somehow victims. /rolleyes

    I am in full agreement with you that the Islamophobic nutters are getting nuttier by the day, but you fail to take account of the fact that Muslims are giving them the ammunition they need. When there are idiots in Hizb-ut-Tahrir who keep shouting the khalifa nonsense over and over, you expect anyone to support that? Really?

  • marco


    All acts of violence are to be condemned, whereever they occur. ABut don’t try and use that as a way to white wash what is happening in the west, and the crap muslims are taking. Most muslims just want to get on with their lives in peace, but are now caught up in some kind of conspiracy on their part, to overthrow western civilization and force shariah law on to the masses.

    In the UK, elderly muslim Imams have been beaten up, and you know what has been happening over the past year. That is only the start of this bigotry, it will get worse and violence is around the corner.

    Just go to atlasshruggs or Jihadwatch and see for yourself the comments and stories about Muslims. Even if it be the worst type of muslim imaginable, they will use his actions as proof that it was to further the Jihad against the west, and then you see the hateful comments about muslims.

    These people have become even nuttier, and more hateful. The hate they spew is no different to the hate i’ve seen on stormfront and Neo-Nazi websites.
    I’ve said it many times before, its only a matter of time.
    First they protest against the mosques, then its petty acts of vandalism like leaving pork, or pigs blood, and next it’ll arson, and then after that an actual attack whilst it is full of people worshipping – which has been the case on a few occasions over the past year or so in the UK.

  • marco

    @ Kal
    There have been more hate rimes against mosques the past year, ever since the anti-9/11 mosque protests began.

    Last year, a pipe bomb was set off at a jacksonville florida mosque, thankfully the idiot left it outside, but had he thrown it into the mosque, the damage & loss of life could have been really great. They got lucky that time.

    Next time, not so much. Then there was that NY cab driver that got his throat slashed just because he was a muslim. Andt there are more incidents occuring, and as this hostile anti muslim envirionment contunues to be stoked by scumbags like Rob Spencer, Pam Geller, Geert wilders who’re proclaiming muslims are secretly plotting to take over america and force shariah law on to everyone, the hostility towards muslims will get worse and violent retaliation isn’t far behind.

    These people are rabidly anti muslim, just as nazis are rabidly anti semetic. They will use violence to defend their way of life, if people keep telling them that the muslims are taking over, and that mosques are just symbols of Islamic conquest and plaecs that preach Jihad and anti americanism

    Mark my words, it will happen./ And then the same people that stoked the tensions will be quick to wash their hands of any wrong doing.

    “He is no moderate.”

    True, but that most certainly does not excuse the actions of the mob, or Deborah Pauly’s call to send these “terrorists to an early grave” (though she later limited her death threat to Wahhaj and his friend) or the use of the shofar as a call to war.

    Evidently, the mob was anti-Muslim and weren’t afraid of showing it. To say they were just there to protest Wahhaj is stupid. Even those protesting Wahhaj went overboard as they were cheering on the idea of extrajudicial killings. So there is no excuse. Those who were there to protest against Wahhaj and those there for some good old Muslim bashing behaved like absolute morons and you have no way of defending their actions.
