Bachman: Who likes white people!?
    #14995873 - 08/29/11 12:52 PM (6 years, 25 days ago)

Since my last thread was locked up for 'lacking content' let me explain the intent of this thread and posting this video. I would like to point out that racism and fundamentalism are still alive and well in the GOP and that we, as Americans, should not fall for knee jerk voting in respect of the 2012 elections. Knee-jerk, emotionalist voting got Obama into power after Bush's countless faults and actions. Lets not make the same mistake an elect a Bachman into the office in a rush to get out Obama.

In my observation, the biggest racists are on the left.

Jesse Jackson
Al Sharpton
Malik Shabazz
Maxine Waters
Melvin Watt
Carolyn Kilpatrick
Congressional Black Caucus
Barack Obama

Not because of their color, but because of the vile crap that spews from their mouths.

Note that I could have made that list far longer, but I expect it's long enough to cause a few nasty comments and at least a stroke or two.

When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation.

Oh yes, as much as I think Bachman would suck, she'd still suck far less than that sleazebag we have now.

A Theocrat or a Socialist.......Hmmmmmm.

The problem is that whenever you are choosing between the lesser of two evils, evil always wins.

But at least you can slow down evil until a better choice comes along. Sometimes a delaying action is the best option.

And yet, he's convinced so many that even if he isn't, he acts like one.

Bachmann has over and over again allowed herself to say these things and tried to backtrack later.  To think that it was humor, her saying that the earthquake and hurricane were acts of God, is humorous to me.  I have a great sense of humor, to be honest, because whenever Michelle Bachmann talks I can't help but laugh.  She is the joke, not what she says.

It was an answer, just not one you wanted to read.  My basis for judgement resides in the facts that Michelle Bachmann is a Christian fundamentalist and anyone who believes otherwise is severely misguided.  Whether said "in jest" or not (my previous posts points out that this isn't the first time she has used religious rhetoric and backtracked later), the point is that it was said, and anybody who takes her seriously as a politician or a candidate for PRESIDENT has many more issues than being a "leftist nitwit" and being a "humorless dweeb."




Sorry for another nonanswer, or being wrong, or being a liberal, or disliking Michelle Bachmann,  or whatever insult you want to dismiss my posts as.

This morning Boingboing (hardly a conservative bastion) made a convincing case that she actually asked "Who here likes WET people?" in reference to a big storm taking place. 

This doesn't diminish the fact that Bachman is a loony theocrat with, like, 4 brain cells to her name.

Yes but you said I was worse.  In what way am I worse?

By the way, I don't think she is viable either, but not for the reasons you cite, which are phony.  Where were you when Obama was attending the Church of Whitey Sucks for twenty years?  Sucking your thumb hoping he would buy you something with my money, no doubt.

He didn't say a lot of things.  Neither did you.  Like an explanation for how I am worse for thinking that was a joke.  Also what you thought about Obama spending 20 years attending the Church of Whitey Sucks.

To get back to the original post we find that it is complete bullshit
http://theothermccain.com/2011/08/29/my-video-of-michele-bachmanns-christian-testimony-used-in-smear-job/

Quote:

This is so shocking I don’t know how to begin to describe it. Regular readers will recall that on Friday, Aug. 5, I covered an appearance by Michele Bachmann at the Spirit Midwest Christian Music Festival in West Des Moines, Iowa. It had been raining all afternoon before Bachmann arrived and gave her Christian testimony, which I recorded on video and posted the next day.

Some vicious monster ripped off my video and edited it, so that when Bachmann begins by jokingly asking the crowd, “Who likes wet people?” — because everybody was soaked to the bone, including me — instead there is a caption, “Who likes white people?”

Ken Layne of Wonkette then spread that smear all around the Internet.




http://onkneesforjesus.blogspot.com/2011/08/im-sorry-michele-bachmann.html

Quote:

I thought it would be good for me to respond to you all directly about the controversy surrounding my upload of Michele Bachmann saying, "Who likes white people?" As most of you already know, she actually said, "Who likes wet people?" There was a following line that was removed from my upload in which she said, "because we have the God of the winds and the rain, don't we?" Nothing was dubbed but the video cut was misleading.

I want to apologize for misusing Stacey Robert McCain's original video (0 Comments). I was angry so I decided to take Mrs. Bachmann's line out of context to make her seem more overtly racist in light of her recent signing of that Iowa marriage pledge that said black children were better off under slavery than in Obama's America. Whether or not I dislike Michele Bachmann, it wasn't right to deliver a dishonest blow like that. I wanted to apologize to Mr. McCain and all of you directly. This blog is dedicated to showing Christ's love through his followers. By posting something misleading, I undermined my own purpose.





Pretty much everybody at Wonkette has proven themselves to be slime.  Now we have a Shroomery scumbag spreading the same lie as truth.  How classy.
