Quote# 81475

I am convinced in my heart and in my mind that if the United States fails to stand with Israel, that is the end of the United States . . . [W]e have to show that we are inextricably entwined, that as a nation we have been blessed because of our relationship with Israel, and if we reject Israel, then there is a curse that comes into play. And my husband and I are both Christians, and we believe very strongly the verse from Genesis [Genesis 12:3], we believe very strongly that nations also receive blessings as they bless Israel. It is a strong and beautiful principle.

Adrian said it best, if it wasn't for this stupid idea that Israel is required to exist for the end of the world to arrive (Why the fuck would you want the world to end anyway?), you'd hate the Jews just as much as you hate Muslims, Wicca, atheists, and Hindus.

Oh fucking a, I was so hoping it was someone powerless and not motherfucking Michele "Batshit" Bachmann.

I would step on children to prevent her from gaining control over a nuclear arsenal.

Oh yeah, and it's nice how you support a country that has been systematically killing and segregating the people THAT WERE THERE FIRST! I guess that's just a good ol' American tradition, huh...

fucking fascists.

So, you're lip-service Christian but in your hearts you are really Jews? Right.

Whatever, I couldn't care less. If Israel behaves like decent folks, then we'd stand with them.
If, however, they behave more or less like Nazis, then we are firmly against them.

Human Rights for The Win! We're all created equal, and we all deserve equal treatment.
That's all.

There are good jews, and those jews should be protected by the same principles and laws as everyone else... but the zionists are a criminal gang who cower behind the name of judaism while engaging in open, colonialist genocide.

Some Jews are a bit like those Amuricans who believed in 'manifest destiny' then?

I was once inextricably entwined. Well, almost. The paramedics thought they'd never get us separated.

[we believe very strongly that nations also receive blessings as they bless Israel.]

Like Palestine? Oh, wait...

Yo Bachmann, stop sucking Bibi Netanyahu's dick. For someone who's probably bitched and moaned about Obama "embarrassing" the United State, you're acting awfully hypocritical. But what else is new?

I do believe Israel has a right to exist, because the Israelis are people and I don't support the mass murder Hamas endorses. But the Palestinians are people too.

If the US fails to stand with Israel. It will mean Israel will think twice about acting the Bully in the Middle East. Good news for Palestine and Lebanon. It may mean you will have to learn Diplomacy with your neighbours and you will no longer be able to make acts of barbarism and get away with it. It could also mean the Hague will charge Israel with breaking the laws against humanity. (Mind you the invasion of Iraq was illegal and I'm yet to see Blair and Bush up for trial.

Michelle Bachmann is truly a stupid woman, but she is simply following the typical Republican "Kiss Israel's Ass" policy. In fact, even the Democrat are afraid of saying something against them.
The curse mentioned in Genesis 12:3 seems pretty ineffectual.

Everytime she speaks, I'm a little more ashamed to admit I'm from Minnesota.

EVERY time!

Israel was established in 1948. Contrast this with 1789 when the USA was formed under its Constitution.

Maybe, it's Israel that should stand with us to keep from going under. It is, after all, our money that's keeping Israel afloat.

5/25/2011 3:40:07 PM


Yeah, let's base all our geopolitical decisions, including ones that have serious repercussions for people's lives, and might escalate an already fraught situation, on what it says in the Bible. Let's seriously believe that God takes time out to have a favourite country, and that he gets mad with people who don't like it.
In fact, isn't the end game of all this Armageddon? In which case, I guess it makes perfect sense to escalate it.

5/25/2011 3:43:00 PM


And Israel is such a beautiful Christian nation.
So much for sovereignty.

5/25/2011 4:50:09 PM


I am equally as convinced that to support Isreal,is to support the Christian notion of Armageddon.

Me and my husband dont think thats a beautiful idea.

5/25/2011 4:53:18 PM


That's a nice thought Michelle, but your time in office probably doesn't leave you with enough time to devote to such elaborate goals in your personal life.

5/25/2011 5:07:32 PM


Heaven help us if she ever gets near the fucking nuclear codes.

5/25/2011 7:17:46 PM


You know of course she hates Jews. Oh yah especially Jew fags. Oh don't forget fags in general. But you shouldn't say General because all Generals are Straight.It's theRepub way. Except those who aren't.
did we win hello hello

You know, it is one thing to have fringe wackos like Lahaye and the nut case with the holy water, that's scary enough that people like this are living, breathing realities.

But to have a major political party and its candidates on the lunatic fringe really scares the crap out of me.

I don't think the US electorate really understands the potential danger associated with some of these loony toons.

Now, hopefully there is still enough sanity in the Republican Party to insure they can't do too much damage, but I'm beginning to wonder if the corporate branch of the GOP is starting to lose control to the loonies.

America has unconditionally supported Israel since its founding in 1948. We have given them trillions in aid including both money and weapons as well as totally unconditional moral support.

In return we have been blessed with terrorists attacks, massive debt and economic collapse, and endless wars.

I, for one, am willing to give the "curse" a try.....

Oh, for fuck's sake.

Fuck the jews
Fuck the muslims
Fuck the hindus
And most important of all, fuck the christ-stains.
Fuck all y'all motherfuckers

Considering that Jews regard Gentiles as mere servants, recalling that certain rabbis speech and game two shit about where they are going to find their nation based on biblical "history" instead of placing it somewhere in south americas where it wouldn't pissed off, lets say entire Islamdom.

Of course, Bachmann cares nothing about Jewish people generally -- or even Israeli Jews. What she's referring to is a very specific subset: only those Jews and Israeli people who are raging right-wingers and support totalitarian religious rule over all aspects of society, and those who support ethnic cleansing aimed at Palestinians (Muslim, Christian and secular alike). The only "good Jew" for Bachmann is one who is usable as a prop for her wingnuttery. And yet she, a goy, is willing to make sweeping accusations of "anti-Semitism" at anyone who criticizes the theocratic right wing of Israeli politics -- including Jewish progressives.

5/25/2011 7:50:49 PM


Baaaahhhh! I'm a sheep.

Michelle, imo,you are an idiot.
