Continuing our series of Pointing Out The Crazy, Outdated Superstitions of The People Who Decide Our Laws, here’s Michele Bachmann telling Christian radio show Understanding The Times that the events in the Book of Revelation are happening in real life because Barack Obama armed Al Qaeda except he didn’t, at all. But that’s entirely irrelevant because, again, here’s an elected government official whose decisions impact the lives of millions saying her professional opinion is that we’re about to literally witness four supernatural horsemen descend from seven seals in the heavens before a beast borne of the earth and with horns of a lamb forces humanity to bear its mark, a.k.a. “Obamacare.”
“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 times history.”
“Rather than seeing this as a negative, we need to rejoice, Maranatha Come Lord Jesus, His day is at hand,” Bachmann continued. “When we see up is down and right is called wrong, when this is happening, we were told this; these days would be as the days of Noah.”
And if this just seems like the harmless beliefs of a deeply spiritual woman who just happens to get to decide who you can marry, what you can do with your uterus, and how big of an arsenal you can have lying around to defend your love of Jesus from jackbooted thugs working for the Beast, keep in mind, it’s also the impetus of Earl Conlon and his band of truckers that plans to block traffic into DC and arrest politicians. Oh, yeah:
Brother Conlon is quite a piece of work, as the Tea Party Command Center (!) message board makes quite clear.
Reply by Earl Conlon yesterday:i’ve always believed Obama to be the Anti Christ from the day i first laid eyes one him.. not to mention the dreams i have had for the past 15 years showing me a man in office who i’ve never heard of before. then comes 2008 and the dreams get more detailed and intense… you figure it out..maybe i am crazy?
But, of course, this guy is crazy for acting on his belief that Obama is the Antichrist and gridlocking Washington while Michele Bachmann is simply exercising her rights as an American by acting on those beliefs to make it illegal for you to have consensual sex without procreating. There’s a difference. Somehow.
