8 Colossal Jackasses From the Right-Wing Fringe: Just-Stop-Being-Poor Edition

And we’re not even mentioning the speakers at CPAC.

Of course, he knows that really isn’t a question since the federal government has offered to pay for Medicaid expansion under Obamacare. Translation: It would be free money for Arkansans who might get hurt or sick while uninsured.

Like you, Josh Miller, dickhead!

4. Michele Bachmann lectures Jews: You’re doing it wrong! You elected the anti-Christ!

In a conversation Monday with Family Research Council head Tony Perkins, that zany Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann chastised American Jews for voting for Obama, She warned them that Obama is “threatening Israel,” and also that he is kind of the anti-Christ, fulfilling biblical prophecies and bringing about the End Times.

Blame it on the Jews, what a novel idea!

The Minnesota congresswoman told Perkins that President Obama is pressuring Israel to “give up its land to terrorists,” who are, of course, allied with Al Qaeda. This is what is going to trigger the end of the world, or as Bachmann described it, the “final war, destroying and reducing to rubble Israel.”

Here are more of her insane and fairly incoherent ramblings:

“That’s in the natural, I just believe that as believers in Jesus Christ who see the authority of scripture, I believe that the Lord and his strong right arm will have Israel’s back and will be her protector. The question is, will we as the United States cooperate in standing with Israel and blessing Israel, or will we join those nations that come against her? We are definitely on the wrong side. It is jaw-dropping, it is stunning, it’s breathtaking.”

Fortunately, she was able to retrieve her breath and scrape her jaw off the floor, so that she could scold the American Jewish community for its wide support for Obama.

What is reassuring, in a way, is that all of this was predicted in the Bible. As Bachmann reads it: “The nations of the world will come against Israel and the scripture very specifically says all nations, now for the United States we don’t have that experience until recently under President Obama with the United States not standing with Israel.”

5. Conservative leader thinking he was off-mic: “Jews are the problem.”

Michele Bachmann, meet Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin (retired), the executive vice president of the conservative Family Research Council, or perhaps you two already know each other.

Turns out you both feel that Jews are a problem.

Boykin has other nutty ideas, like a theory that President Barack Obama is using “subliminal messages” to signal support for Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood. There is audio to this effect posted by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) on Friday.

“If you understand anything about Islam, there are subliminal messages,” Boykin says. “[Obama's] message, really, I believe was, ‘I understand you, and I support you.’”

Sounds like a thoroughly reasonable man. So reasonable in fact that CPAC won’t even allow him to participate. CPAC! — which featured such bright lights as Donald Trump rambling incoherently and Sarah Palin doing what she does best, making no sense.

Anyway, Boykin and his fellow all-out loonies hold a competing event called the National Security Action Summit. The event’s organizer, Frank Gaffney, has accused CPAC’s organizers, the American Conservative Union, of having ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Later, Boykin was just joshing around with a reporter, an Israeli no less, saying, “The Jews are the problem. The Jews are the cause of all the problems in the world.”

Oh. Hahahahahahaha.They must have had a good belly laugh.  The Jews love that kind of humor...
