Rep. Michele Bachmann has always been a laughingstock as a Republican congresswoman (except for the Tea Party), but now she's trying to reach out to Tim LaHaye and his Left Behind series of books.
I wouldn't be surprised if she comes up with a Christmas coloring book for children depicting the End Times.
Speaking with Family Research Council head Tony Perkins yesterday, Rep. Michele Bachmann warned that President Obama is “threatening Israel,” and by doing so is fulfilling biblical prophecies and bringing about the End Times. The Minnesota congresswoman told Perkins that Obama is pressuring Israel to “give up its land to terrorists” allied with Al Qaeda, which will lead to a “final war, destroying and reducing to rubble Israel.”
“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,” Bachmann said. “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.”
The congresswoman was echoing an End Times belief that holds that a massive battle will take place in Israel, triggering the Last Days.
Bachmann also skewered the Jewish community in the US for its wide support for Obama. She said that Obama “was helped enormously by the Jewish community,” who she says care more about supporting Obama than Israel.
Whenever I post about her, I can't help myself -- I have to post some of her Bizaroo World Egyptian press conference.
Bachmann: My name is Michele Bachmann. I'm a member of the United States Congress from the United States of America.
