Michele Bachmann went on a right wing radio show, told lies and presented full-blown conspiracy theories with no evidence at all to support them. In other words, it was a day ending in Y. This time it was Jan Markell’s radio show, which is all about the “end times,” and the subject was ISIS.
After arguing that ISIS members are entering the country as they illegally cross the southern border and “march through our United States airports,” Bachmann made the false claim that “President Obama released Baghdadi,” referring to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al Baghdadi. In fact, he was released during the Bush administration.
“I don’t want to see the car bombings and all of the havoc and chaos coming to the United States that we see in Baghdad,” she said. “Since we have the Islamic State come into the United States, we’ll see a wave of car bombings and bombings that occur here in the United States that would begin the process of destabilization to bring them to the point of defeating us here in the United States.”
There isn’t a shred of evidence that ISIS is coming into the U.S., of course, but evidence is never needed when positing a right-wing conspiracy theory. If they can imagine it to be true, it must actually be true (like their religious beliefs, not coincidentally).
