Michele Bachmann: God Is Punishing Us For Obama, Just Like It Says In The Bible
Now that Michele Bachmann is no longer a member of Congress, she is free at last to share her innermost insanity that she'd kept to herself all those years she was in office. Like when she wanted to call upon Americans to slit their wrists in opposition to Obamacare, or wanted to demand that the media investigate Congress to find out which members are "anti-America" -- but of course she didn't do those things, because that would sound CRAZY coming from an elected politician.
Now, no longer shackled by the restraints of feigning a sliver of dignity as an officeholder, she can let it all hang out, like she did over the weekend on a radio show about The End Times, which is absolutely a real thing, as Bachmann knows and from which she is still trying to save us before it's too late, as she explained to the show's host and fellow True Believer, Jan Markell:
The reason why, Jan, you and I are talking about this is because we take as true what the Bible says in Genesis about Israel, and about nations’ response to Israel. We recognize that we have been singularly blessed in the United States because of the way the United States has blessed Israel, over and over, from 1948 until recent times. We also know that this isn’t a one-sided view in the Bible. The Bible talks about blessing. It also talks about cursing. And we recognize that God is true, and His ways are altogether just. And if the United States turns its back on Israel, as our president is doing today, in my opinion, we cannot continue to indulge in the fantasy that the United States will be free from the negative blowback -- or curses, in biblical parlance -- that could come our way, and they could be severe.
Ya see, the president is not only "a economic Marxist," but he is also "not as concerned about United States sovereignty" because he has not demonstrated his loyalty to Israel. Wait, huh, what?
He has taken an opposite view of Israel unlike any other president that we have ever had since 1948. His view is anti-Israel. We’ve never seen that before. So that in effect now declared war on Israel from the United States.
Sure, that's valid, as long as you don't count any presidents who came before Barack Obama -- like, say, George H.W. Bush, whose administration was not exactly known for being besties with Israel. But did we ever have natural or economic troubles under Daddy Bush? No! Which just proves that the economy his son crashed when he was president, and the droughts on the West Coast and the snowstorms on the East coast, are all because God is real angry with us for electing Obama (twice!) so he could bring forth the American apocalypse, as foretold in the Bible:
It’s my opinion that that is ONLY the very threshold or downpayment. If we actually turn our back on Israel, as we are seeing Barack Obama do today, if that happens, then I think we will see a scale and a level of pushback in the United States, and negative consequences. I don’t know what they are, but I believe that the Bible is true. And I believe that 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, not only once but twice. And the people have to rise up against his actions, and demand that their leaders take steps accordingly.
Unfortunately, Bachmann does not offer any more specific biblical parlance for how to "rise up" against the president we elected. Maybe another suicide pact, since that worked so well in stopping Obamacare? Or maybe we just need to skim through Genesis to find the part where God talks about stopping the Marxist usurper. It must be in there ... somewhere. Bachmann said so.
