… not that I’m sure she was ever hinged. Still, her latest performance on the radio show Understanding the Times is pretty odd. Right Wing Watch caught her having a glorious melt down over the idea that the US is shipping arms to Syrian rebels.
At least in theory the rebels have no terrorist ties and according the the White house the aid they’re sending is protective gear and not offensive weapons. But there’s always reason to be skeptical of these claims, and reasons to fear mission creep.
But Bachmann jumps way over those concerns, “Your listeners, US taxpayers, are now paying to give arms to terrorists including Al Qaeda.” … excuse me?
From there, she exults that this non-existent political scandal is the final seal, the last sign of the coming end times:
“This happened and as of today the United States is willingly, knowingly, intentionally sending arms to terrorists, now what this says to me, I’m a believer in Jesus Christ, as I look at the End Times scripture, this says to me that the leaf is on the fig tree and we are to understand the signs of the times, which is your ministry, we are to understand where we are in God’s end times history.”
“Rather than seeing this as a negative, we need to rejoice, Maranatha Come Lord Jesus, His day is at hand,” Bachmann continued. “When we see up is down and right is called wrong, when this is happening, we were told this; these days would be as the days of Noah.”
