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.

I researched who this Michele Bachmann is. (I'm not from US)

I realized that USA has already been cursed in the form of Michele Bachmann.

Madam, keep your religion out of politics lest politics start interfering in your religion.

Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn if you and your husbad and the family dog have all got religion. It has nothing to do with politics.

If you knew anything about economics you would know that the USA is already badly overstretched and could do far better without supporting Israel to the tune of god knows how many billions since that state was founded. Let us call a spade a spade, the only reason you support Israel is because you believe the bible requires Israel to exist, and convert to Christianity (Your version, of course) so the idiotic rapture will take place. Frankly that puts you more in the position of suitability for the looney bin than for Congress.

The Israelis stole nuclear weapons technology from us, and then they sold it to South Africa.

Any comments, Michelle?

Looking back...

"And so Michele Bachmann became president in 2012, and that was the final nail in the coffin of US/Arab relations. That's why all middle Eastern countries stopped dealing in US dollars, that's why Pakistan cut off all support in the war on terror and began supporting the Taliban. Now the US faces a deadly nuclear standoff with Pakistan and Iran, just like it did with the Soviets for over four decades. That's why the British government received no warnings over the 2013 dirty bomb in London, that's why the BNP now have four MPs in the British Parliament, and that's why Muslims all over Europe are being persecuted by extreme right-wing organisations.

So you will understand now why gasoline is now $27 a gallon, and that is why the US miltary under Bachmann have been seizing oil-bearing land from private ownership in Texas.

It is estimated that a full civil war will be inevitable within two years"...

All it takes for half of FSTDT to convert into anti-semitism is a misguided fundie talking about Israel.

5/26/2011 9:05:38 AM

@#1293182: How is it anti-Semitic to deplore the systematic persecution that the Israeli government employs against Palestinians? How is it anti-Semitic to say that the oppression of the Palestinian people is a disgrace against humanity? Just because the perpetrators are Jewish? What if we were talking about the Turkish government's own poor treatment of its minorities? Would you say that it was "anti-Turkish" to criticize them? That we hated Turks and that was the only reason why we were talking about it?

We are not talking about the Jewish people when we criticize Israel's treatment of the Palestinians; we are talking about the Israeli *government.* And the army, which serves the government. Criticism of a nation's actions (or, more accurately, the government's actions) does not automatically equate to racism against that nation's people.

Especially when there are *Jewish* critics of the Israeli government's stance against Palestinians. So, in your view, are they self-hating racists? Or do they just not approve of the Israeli government's actions?

So you want to base your nation's foreign policy in the 21st century on the scribblings of some superstitious desert-dwelling goat-herder dude who lived thousands of years before the USA even existed.

That's the only problem with democracy; it gives votes to slavering retards.

5/26/2011 11:25:11 AM


This isn't very fundie or stupid. It's bringing religion into a political situation, but it's nothing like the Navaros quotes above.

Bachmann was once quoted as stating: "She was a fool for jesus."

Well, I guess she is half right.

I strongly believe that if the United States would stop supporting Israel we could decrease the national debt.

5/28/2011 4:41:49 AM

It went fairly well until 1948. Take it easy, young lady.

Fuck you, nameless troll (#1293182). By using the rehashed and tired cliche of "anti-Semitism," you are denying the Arabs their humanity. Arabs are Semites, too. Palestinians are Arabs. Therefore if you're anti-Semitic, you're also anti-Arab, too. And if we're criticizing the Israeli state, it is in no way an indictment of Judaism in general. THAT'S what people like Noam Chomsky and Norman Finkelstein want to clarify.

I bet if you were a white anti-Jim Crow activist, you were a self-hating white person, right? Fuck off.

5/29/2011 8:27:35 PM

Michele Bachmann might be insane, but the fact that enough Americans share her insanity for her to be voted into office is more worrisome.

@Bender Bending Rodriguez

"Arabs are Semites, too. Palestinians are Arabs"

Those who were born in & live in & around the environs of Persia/Iran are Aryans.

Just tell that to any member of the KKK, Aryan Nations/Brotherhood, Skinheads, Tom Metzger et al, and watch their heads explode:


...oh, and Hitler was a paedophile too:

Ugh, people voted for this nut job.

5/30/2011 11:41:23 AM


You only like Israel because:

1) You think that the Rapture depends on it.

2) You want to blow up all the brown people anyway.

5/30/2011 3:59:42 PM


C'mon Michele, just take the challenge to debate history and American civics from the High School girl. She'll destroy you lame-ass attempts to rewrite history and the constitution.

5/31/2011 3:42:23 AM


I don't know what's more mind boggling...

...this woman's beliefs, or the fact that she's in office.

6/1/2011 10:36:38 AM


This statement shows an incredible lack of knowledge regarding geopolitics from an elected member of congress. The United States has no permanent friends, only permanent interests.

Imagine this woman with the "nuclear football" for a moment.

Oh PLEASE let this dumb cunt run against Obama and let them play a round of merciless hardball with her goofy ass.

She'll end up looking no better then Palin. I've heard this bitch spout all sort of nonsense before, like when she claimed the founding fathers abolished slavery, and I think she'd get bitchslapped around everywhere but Fox News if she ran. (Fox news would kiss her ass, but hey it's a far right propaganda network that Goebbels would either be proud of or ashamed of for it's STUPIDITY in doing what he did.)

7/3/2011 7:10:58 PM


Whoa, whoa, whoa, mates... not that I don't understand why you're saying it, but isn't comparing zionism to nazism and Israel's actions to Nazi Germany and apartheid a mite too strong?
I mean yeah, Israel does a lot of crap, but these comparisons just seem like an overreaction.
