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.”
