Bachmann Happy Obama is Destroying America

Michele Bachmann went on one of the many Christian right radio shows that push the “end is near” nonsense and ranted incoherently about how Obama is on the side of the terrorists and is causing God to destroy America with financial and natural disasters — but this is a good thing.

“If we actually turn our back on Israel as we have seen Barack Obama do today, if that happens then I think we will see a scale and a level of push back in the United States, negative consequences,” Bachmann told Understanding the Times radio host Jan Markell on Sunday. “I don’t know what they are, but I believe that the Bible is true. And believe what the Bible says is that our nation and the people of our nation will reap a whirlwind, and we could see economic disasters, natural disasters.”

“The United States does not want to be in that position and unfortunately the people put into office Barack Obama,” she opined. “Not only once, but twice. And the people have to rise up against his actions and demand that their leaders take steps accordingly.”

So Obama is evil and the people have to rise up to stop him. But he’s also bringing on the return of Jesus, which is cause for celebration:

“These are not fearful times, these are the most exciting days in history,” she insisted. “Talk about what you see in the newspaper. We can talk about God’s time clock and the fact that Jesus Christ’s return is imminent. Is there anything more important to talk about?”

“We need to be so on fire right now about the things of Christ and the things of God, that needs to occupy our time and our thoughts virtually from morning to night because we have very little time — in my opinion — left before the second return of Christ. That’s good news!” the former congresswoman added. “The world is embracing degeneracy, but what that also tells us as we look at what the world is doing that they’re going according to God’s time clock. Pastors, preach it from the pulpit!”

As usual, she is utterly oblivious to her own contradictions. If Obama’s actions are causing the imminent return of Jesus, why would she want to rise up against him and stop him? Does she not want Jesus to return? If it’s “good news,” why are you trying to stop it?

    “We can talk about God’s time clock and the fact that Jesus Christ’s return is imminent.”

    She and I must have different definitions for the word “fact.”

  • John Pieret

    Well, at least she got passed what so many Christians spout … that the “end times” are this terrible disaster.

  • Alverant

    If Jesus didn’t object when the USA practiced slavery, Jim Crow, the massacres of native Americans, what can Obama do to get his attention?

  • http://en.uncyclopedia.co/wiki/User:Modusoperandi Modusoperandi

    Alverant “If Jesus didn’t object when the USA practiced slavery…”

    He did object, and cursed America accordingly, by forcing Oppressed White Men to change their dogwhistles a century later.

     

    “…what can Obama do to get his attention?”

    He has His attention, on account of all Obama’s prayers refering to His Father as “Allah”.

    One good thing. The wise American people would never elect anyone so stupid into government.

  • Larry

    The GOP isn’t a political party, it’s an apocalyptic cult.

  • Nick Gotts

    before the second return of Christ

    Huh. His first return was evidently a complete washout, since there’s absolutely no historical record of it. These old stagers never know when to call it a day – always another comeback tour!

  • Die Anyway

    You better watch out

    You better not cry

    Better not pout

    I’m telling you why

    Jesus Christ is coming to town!

    He’s making a list

    And checking it twice

    Gonna find out Who’s naughty and nice

    Jesus Christ is coming to town!

  • wreck

    ““I don’t know what they are…”

    The list of things this could apply to is almost infinite.

    “We can talk about God’s time clock and the fact that Jesus Christ’s return is imminent. Is there anything more important to talk about?”

    Is there anything less important to talk about? This woman gives morons a bad name.

    And believe what the Bible says is that our nation and the people of our nation will reap a whirlwind, and we could see economic disasters, natural disasters.”

    Gibberish.

    The bible doesn’t mention the USA. Because the Iron Age sheepherders who wrote it had no idea North America even existed.

    When has the USA or any other country not had economic disasters and natural disasters? FFS, it is all part of living on a planet!!!

    In fact, the US economy has been expanding slowly and steadily for six years. The stock markets and corporate profits are at record highs. Job creation has been OK, unemployment is half what it was. Who has been cleaning up the GOP mess is…Obama.

    Who caused the economic disaster known as the Great Recession was the GOP, George Bush, and in part, Republican Representative from Minnesota, Michele Bachmann.

  • k_machine

    we could see economic disasters, natural disasters.

    Economic disasters and natural disasters!? But those never happen unless the coming of Jesus is nigh. Also, nice hedging with the “could”, Michele. Don’t you have faith?

  • raven

    One good thing. The wise American people would never elect anyone so stupid into government.

    Even the clown car AKA the GOP had problems with Bachmann. She cost them too much to get reelected for what was always a brain fizzing with confusion and religious delusions.

    When she ran into campaign finance trouble, they cheerfully threw her under a bus.

    It was almost too bad. She is an endless source of amusement and the poster person for Fundie Xian Induced Cognitive Impairment.

  • Jared James

    One gets the impression from every interview she’s ever given that the Representative from St Cloud doesn’t have much in the way of a mind of her own. Whoever talked to her last, and whatever nonsense they said (or she understood) is what she thinks about.

    She takes the term “easily-led” to a whole new level.

  • busterggi

    “As usual, she is utterly oblivious to her own contradictions.”

    Of course she is, you don’t think she pays attention when she talks, do you?

  • felidae

    Michele, dear, its the right time for you to punch out now on God’s celestial time clock and leave us alone

  • marcus

    It is the basic contradiction of Christianity, the warp and the weft, if you will.

    Everybody wants to go to Heaven, nobody wants to die.

  • Rasalhague

    “…unfortunately the people put into office Barack Obama,” she opined. “Not only once, but twice. And the people have to rise up against his actions and demand that their leaders take steps accordingly.”

    Huh? The fact that people keep electing him would seem to indicate they agree with him and not you. Why should they “rise up against his actions”?

    I saw what you did there!…I am now making a fresh coffee and trying to remember how the ancient laptop works after brushing off the dust and hoping that dry rice grains do there thing on the desktop keyboard….

    Don’t be sad, Raven:

    “It was almost too bad. She is an endless source of amusement and the poster person for Fundie Xian Induced Cognitive Impairment.”

    Remember, there’s always Louie Gohmert!

  • johnhodges

    If Bachmann and her fans think that Jesus’ return (and more to the point, Judgment Day) are coming Real Soon Now, they might want to know what Jesus said about what they should DO to prepare for that event.

    I went through the four gospels and collected everything Jesus is reported to have said about what his followers should DO. It was a very educational exercise, which I recommend to all Christians. I wrote up my findings here:

    Nick Gotts – Foolbert Sturgeon’s classic, The New, Improved, Testament shows the first return of Jesus on page one, in which he is immediately run over by a car. Second page commences with his second return.
