Michele Bachmann is back!
What I want to know is who the HELL invited her?
Actually, the charges included misuse of campaign funds, during her aborted run at the Presidency. Specifically, using leadership PAC money to pay staff and paying an Iowa State Senator under the table. (Ethics rules bar legislators from being employed by campaigns.)
It was a bit quieter in Tinfoil Toupee Territory after she left. Of course, there were still lots of filberts like Louie Gohmert to take up a bit of the slack, but Michele was in a league of her own.
And then, along came Donny Trump (aka “His Hairness,” aka “Duh Fuhrer,” aka “Rump.”)
She probably felt a bit left out when His Hairness didn’t invite her to join the mayhem that is his administration.
I doubt if that was personal. It’s just that she didn’t meet his qualifications. She isn’t super-rich, she isn’t a high ranking military person with a few tubes loose, and SHE’S A WOMAN. (You’d think that Rump would at least want to grab her “youknowwhat.”)
I know, the Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos, claims to be a woman, but she donated millions to “the cause.” (Money trumps gender in Trumpistan!)
In any case, Michele is back in the news cycle once again.
It seems she’s got a bad case of the “upsets” about an “unconstitutional” action by Minneapolis. (Btw, “Minneapolis” is NOT Chippewa for “Apple Orchard!” Who says my posts aren’t educational?) The city actually had the audacity to set up a “hate crime” hotline.
To Michele, this reeks of fascism, not to mention government interference with the religious right of “Khristians” (As opposed to “Christians,” which they ain’t!) to be assholes
Over the weekend, Michele went on Jan Markell’s “Understanding The Times” radio rant fest to share her feelings on the matter.
What we’re seeing is that hotlines are being set up by units of government for the purpose of encouraging people to call in and rat on their fellow man to report a hate crime. What they’re trying to do is implement anti-blasphemy laws. They’re trying to implement Islamic Sharia law locally in order to quiet churches and quiet anybody who would talk about what the truth is about Islam.
What they want is civilization jihad. They want jihad through the court system to silence speech because when you take away someone’s speech rights to speak out—like we’re doing right now, to tell the truth about something—then it’s game over … There should be a lawsuit filed against the city of Minneapolis for doing this. They have violated the so-called separation of church and state that the left is so in love with because they’re preferring Islam over any other religion and, number two, they’re fascists. That’s what they are, they’re fascists; they want to shut down your right to free speech.
I noticed that she brought up the “Sharia law” thingy. That seems to be an extremely dangerous item to the religious(?) wing-nuts. They are deathly afraid of the miniscule Muslim population taking over the judicial system and replacing it with “Sharia.” However, they truely believe (Michele included) that this country should be ruled under biblical law, which, if you look close, is a mirror image of “Sharia.” (Probably stems from the fact that Jews, Christians and Muslims are all “People of the Book.”)
p.s.: If my ramblings don’t revolt you, check out my FaceBook page (“Grouchy’s Grumbles”) you might just enjoy it. Better yet, you might “like” it. I’d love it if you did. It’s free (and worth every cent) and almost completely painless (other than the usual bad jokes).
