Default Bachmann Says Obama Fulfilling End Times Prophecy

She's so entertaining.

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 time history.

And then there's this:

“Rather than seeing this as a negative, we need to rejoice, Maranatha, come Lord Jesus, His day is at hand,” Bachmann said. “When we see up is down and right is called wrong, when this is happening, we were told this: that these days would be as the days of Noah.”

I have to agree with her about the end times. If there is a district in America that keeps putting this woman in office, it does signal the end times of this way of government.

As Right Wing Watch's Brian Tashman points out, Bachmann -- who has previously spoken of the second coming of Christ -- was stretching the truth in her accusations against Obama.

"The Minnesota congresswoman referred to a decision by the Obama administration to allow vetted Syrian rebels not affiliated with terrorist organizations to help them resist chemical weapons attacks, which was spurred by the Syrian regime’s use of chemical weapons on civilians," Tashman wrote. "While the administration’s move is only related to non-lethal, defensive and protective aid, Bachmann falsely claimed that 'President Obama waived a ban on selling arms to terrorists.'"

In other words she's a crazy ass liar.

Bachmann reminds me of Sheen's character from "The Dead Zone". Remember why Walken's character was trying to kill him?

It's frightening that people who still think like this are in positions of power.

Why? I'm agnostic and I couldn't care less. I don't feel threatened by it.

I see no point in mocking religious nonsense if you're going to confine it to one group, as liberals always like to do.

Let's see some mockery about Judaism and Islam already.

The political elite, the wealthy and Corporate America only dislike government spending when they aren't the beneficiaries - which explains their distaste for welfare spending that benefits the poor, says Eric Ruder.

Show me some ignorant statements like that from either of those faiths and we'll mock them, too.

The end times.

We know that the GOP is thick with Jews and Muslims.

The GOP will need an Exorcist to get the 'crazy' out of the party.

As you're an agnostic, I'm not surprised. You actually believe these people might have a point and don't have the intellectual fortitude to recognize how nuts it is.

I'll mock ANY religious person who claims that their superstitions should make public policy for everyone else. Hell, I'll mock them just for their superstitious beliefs alone.

Agnosticism is far less presumptuous than atheism.

Not just mock them, but work to silence them. Over your superstitions. Is that progress?

Believing there is something where there is nothing is superstition.

Believing there is nothing where there is nothing is just experience.

How about believing there is nothing when you don't really know?

the "we're all being persecuted" complex, that so many on the right are inflicted with. get called out for trying to force your beliefs on others and it's persecution.

Far too often, Progressives struggle to separate 'force' from 'free exercise'
