Who's zoomin' who?

Bryan Fischer has recently slammed Planned Parenthood for racism. Although Fischer jumps on any controversy to keep himself in the public eye, he does seem to have a deep and long-lasting dislike of PP, no doubt over the abortion issue. You probably recall the flap. Somebody called PP and got the person who answered the phone to agree to accept a donation to abort an African-American baby. The Statesman's story is here. In criticising PP, Fischer wrote:
Said IVA Executive Director Bryan Fischer, “It turns out that blatant racism is alive and well in Idaho, but it’s not coming from the Aryan Nation types – it’s coming from way-left organizations like Idaho’s own Planned Parenthood.”
Fischer concluded, “Idaho didn’t have room for Richard Butler and shouldn’t have room for Planned Parenthood.”
Well, Geoff has been doing some reading and has found some of Fischer's writings that move him off the moral high ground for accusing others of racism.
But if immigration policies allow newcomers to fundamentally alter the cultural values that have made America the envy of the world, and results in the Balkanization of American society instead of preserving its unity, not only will our children and grandchildren suffer as a result, we will lose our capacity to carry out the unique redemptive purpose God has assigned to our people.

It is my judgment that uncontrolled immigration is threatening our national unity, fundamentally altering the DNA of our culture, and dimming the light of our "city on a hill."

Thus I believe that regaining a sure and secure control of our borders as the first order of business is sound public policy for many reasons. Uncontrolled immigration not only threatens our national security, our national identity, our public health and our national stability, it also interferes with our ability to carry out God's redemptive purpose.(emphasis added)
Words like "unity" and "DNA" serve as code words. If you were of a mind to, you could read this as saying we have to preserve the purity of our race.

You're stealing my thunder and you've upset Bryan.

I'd say "good job" but I'm too jealous right now.
