Welcome to “This Week In Crazy,” The National Memo’s weekly update on the wildest attacks, conspiracy theories, and other loony behavior from the increasingly unhinged right wing. Starting with number five:

5. Bryan Fischer

American Family Association leader Bryan Fischer isn’t saying that President Obama is intentionally spreading Ebola throughout the country because he hates America. He’s just asking questions.

“It looks like he actually wants Ebola to come to the United States,” Fischer said of the president on the Tuesday edition of his show. “Why would he want that? Well remember, President Obama thinks that this country is racist to its core, it’s been racist since the beginning, it’s an evil colonial force that’s been the root of all kinds of evil all around the world, it needs to be punished, it needs to be brought down to size, it needs to be disciplined.”

“It looks like President Obama wants Ebola to come to the United States to punish America for being racist,” he continued — after reiterating that he’s not technically accusing the president of planning a pandemic. “Maybe it’s part of his redistribution plan to redistribute disease, not just wealth.”

One would think Fischer might be more sympathetic to the president’s diabolical plan to wipe out racists, considering how much he loves black males.
