Bachmann Sees Proof That We're Living in the 'End Times'

Right-wing fanatics in Texas argue that hundreds of Texas school districts are indoctrinating students with Islamic and Marxist propaganda, and anti-science activists are trying to dumb down the same students’ textbooks with nonsense criticizing evolution and climate change science. But it’s important to remember that Texas isn’t the only state plagued by ideological extremists. Consider what our friends at Right Wing Watch are reporting about U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn.:

In an interview with Understanding the Times host Jan Markell on Saturday, Rep. Michele Bachmann accused President Obama of giving aid to Al Qaeda, which she said is proof that we are living in the Last Days….

Bachmann said that the Al Qaeda funding (which isn’t happening) is a sign of the End Times: “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.”

  1. Well, she’s right. At least, she’s living in the “end times”. It’s nearing the end of the high life for her and nearing the beginning of the “orange jump suit” phase of her life. The gop is circling the drain, as well.

  2. Important and yet of small comfort to know that the extremist nutcases are everywhere, as I am constantly pointing out to others who act like Texas is the only one harboring them.

  3. Yes, MN has one nut, and she is definitely looney-tunes, but TX and south-eastern states seem to breed many, many nut jobs. (Native Minnesotan’s observation based on 3 years living in Dallas)

  4. But….but….I thought the “End Times” were a good thing. I thought the “End Times” is what Christians most hope and pray for. So why isn’t Bachmann rejoicing? She should be on top of the world spiritually right now, right?

    Since it has been journalistic proven, after finding the proof, it has been The Koch Brothers that has bee funding the Tea Partiers. Now The Koch Brothers will be Doubling Down with their funding: In a blockbuster story this weekend, The New York Times reported that “the billionaire Koch brothers, Charles and David, have been deeply involved with financing the overall [government shutdown] effort,” backing multiple dark-money groups. They even funded the group that ran that horrible ad with a creepy Uncle Sam in the doctor’s office.
    Those of You who want to support President Obama, Senator Reid, and fellow progressives in staring down the Republican extremists, there is evidence that known that the Koch brothers are behind it.
    Polls show Democrats are winning the shutdown battle, which means the Koch brothers are likely to double down with a repeat attempt to eliminate Obama Care or compromise it. We need to be prepared to compete.

  6. People claim that we live in the End Times for about 2000 years now. Since then they also ignore their own holy book that says:
    ‘Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.’ (Matthew 25:13).
    Some theologians even interpret the parable in a way that the second coming will happen at a time when no one is actively expecting it (both the foolish and the wise virgins fell asleep). From that point of view people like Bachmann acually prevent the second coming by talking this nonsense. Like the old trick of ‘I’ll give you a cookie but only after you have forgotten that I promised you one.’
    Not to forget 1 Thessalonians 5:2
    ‘For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night.’
