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?
