Michele Bachmann, Non-Jew, Scolds Jews for Voting Incorrectly for Obama and Ushering in the 'End Times'

Bible-thumping nutjob congresswoman warns that Obama is the anti-Christ.

Remember when Michele Bachmann said she was going to retire from politics (coincidentally amidst an ethics probe)? Perhaps you thought she would stop saying ridiculous absurdities in public after that.


In a conversation Monday with Family Research Council head Tony Perkins. Bachmann chastised American Jews for voting for Obama, because she knows what's good for them—despite not being Jewish. 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. So, not crazy at all.

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 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. She even accused the Jewish community for caring more about Obama than Israel:

The Jewish community gave him their votes, their support, their financial support and as recently as last week, forty-eight Jewish donors who are big contributors to the president wrote a letter to the Democrat [sic] senators in the US Senate to tell them to not advance sanctions against Iran. This is clearly against Israel’s best interest. What has been shocking has been seeing and observing Jewish organizations who it appears have made it their priority to support the political priority and the political ambitions of the president over the best interests of Israel. They sold out Israel.

Bachmann and Perkins nodded their nutcake heads in unison when Perkins said that Obama is forcing Israel to "surrender," and also said that Israel will fall under a two-state solution.

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.”
