Bachmann Implies She Knows What’s Best for Israel, Says Jewish Americans Have ‘Sold Out’

bachmann-11Religious fanatics crack me up.  They’re so convinced that they know “what’s best” that even when their beliefs are contradicted by people who know far more than they do about a specific religion – they still don’t believe that they’re wrong.

You’ve seen this with several prominent conservative figures questioning Pope Francis’ faith, with Sarah Palin saying that he sounded “too liberal” and Rush Limbaugh calling him a marxist.

Heck, you even had a prominent Fox News editor calling him the “Catholic Church’s Obama.”

Nothing quite like “Christians” attacking the beliefs of the most powerful Christian leader in the world simply because they contradict their propaganda.

Well, now you have Michele Bachmann attacking Jewish Americans.  Because, you know, she apparently knows more about what it is to be (and represent) the Jewish religion than actual Jews.

While doing an interview with Family Research Council president Tony Perkins, Bachmann said, “The Jewish community gave him their votes, their support, their financial support and as recently as last week, 48 Jewish donors who are big contributors to the president wrote a letter to the Democrat senators in the U.S. Senate to tell them to not advance sanctions against Iran.”

She also attacked Jewish organizations like the American Israel Public Affairs Committee for backing off a push for a swift vote on new Iran sanctions, saying, “This is clearly against Israel’s best interest.  What has been shocking has been seeing and observing Jewish organizations who it appears have made it their priority to support the political priority and the political ambitions of the President over the best interests of Israel.  So in some respects, they sold out Israel.”

Yes, that’s someone who isn’t Jewish telling the leading Jewish organization, and Jewish Americans, that she knows more about the best interest of Israel than they do.

Talk about arrogance.

I really feel like God or Jesus Christ could come down from the heavens, tell Republicans that they’re completely wrong, and conservatives would just scoff and say, “You have no idea what it is you’re talking about!  You’re just liberally biased!”

Because that’s really the point we’ve come to.  Republicans telling the Pope that he’s wrong about Christianity and non-Jewish Republicans telling Jewish Americans that they’re selling out Israel.

Statements that would almost be funny if they weren’t true.

    why in the name of God do you give air time to this stupid freaking asshat?

      10 months and counting. Hopefully, she did not lie about not running for Congress again—hopefully!

    >”Jewish organizations … made it their priority to support … the President over the best interests of Israel. So in some respects, they sold out Israel.”

    Um. Why WOULDN’T they support the President over the ‘interests’ of another country? Why wouldn’t ANYBODY support our President (and our country) over the ‘interests’ of any OTHER country in this world??

    There is a name we have for those who support other countries over our own. Is THAT what Michele Bacmann advocates???

    This same ‘type’ of thinking — that our loyalty lies with our heritage, rather than our President (and our country) — is what led to the internment of Japanese Americans during WW2…at a time when their sons/brothers/fathers/husbands in the 442nd served with distinction and valor in Europe.

        You know, I used to think Bachmann rode the Crazy Train. Now I realize, she’s the damned Conductor.

      Thank you for this. It was entirely appropriate.

    What I really want is Michelle Bachman to run for President. Please. Her country needs her to run. Please Michelle. No one could run opposed to Hillary like you could. Please Michelle. Run Michelle Run!

        This dirty moth troll “mighty tegu” is actually famous Democrap, Janet Reno

        Listen Janet I have it on good authority that Hillary might be interested. If you have a decent pant suit in your wardrobe, why don’t you give her a call.

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        ejoy voting for the 2016 loser— Hillary 2016-2024: has a nice ring to it; donnnnt it?
        ( hows our bet? poor genetic inferior: women loathe thee)

      • TheSotSays

        Give her a call Janet, maybe you can be FLOTUS instead of Barry. You’ll have to shave your legs though.

        I understand all the ugly Democrap women donate their leg shavings to George Soros.

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        seems our wager cannot get traction– please excuuuuse my “faux pas” for even suspecting that U may have any value- my total stupidity!
        I sell the huge amount of hair I have left over ( when I trim it) to guys such as U who need follicle therapy but cannot afford it.
        BYTHEWAY– how IS that small dicked gian keys? he tells me he is proud of his brittle body

  • Edward Krebbs

    So now the fundamentalists know what is better for Israel than Israel does ? Wouldn’t the next logical step be the forced conversion of Israel to a Christian nation ? Wonder what Jewish folk have to say about that.
    Admittedly, I have my own items of criticism and items of support of Israel. I understand that the fundamentalist wing of Christianity has long been an ardent supporter of Israel.

    • moe/larry & curly keys

      the regressive rightwing religious trash here in America now wants to privatize circumsicions
      lets start with Bachmann– u KNOW she aint getting any sex

      • TheSotSays

        The Warden at Raiford would like to do one on you. He thinks it will provide him with a chance to get a head.

        I hope you have good luck with it!

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        sorry,,,,,,,,,,,,,, my weenie is only for large breasted women ( noooo boob-jobs)
        luckily that rules out all of the rightwing bad genetic flat chics they throw at us

      • TheSotSays

        I called Starke to see if you’re a trouble maker. The Warden said you weren’t too bad except they had to make sure they kept you away from the farm animals.

        Apparently they were worried when you started to pester the armadillos.They use those critters in leprosy experiments so you better be careful.

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        actually mr NON informed: armadillos are known for tuberculosis.
        your education mirrors your existence.

      • TheSotSays

        Well Janet have it your way but when your transplant falls to the ground don’t say I didn’t warn you.

        Nevertheless Janet in the long run how can it matter for a sad wretch like you? I’ve heard that your ilk operates on the stupid premise that a good tongue is worth 10 inches any day.

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        wow– U imply U have “10 inches”??? Hmmmmm,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
        that was covered in 10th grade ( see: those who claim generally shouldn’t)
        transplant? naaaah– all of my fabulous body parts are 100% original ( except a crown on a back tooth from eating FROZEN turtle candy 10 yrs ago)
        seems when I repeatedly catch U with your overt lack of knowledge U (repeatedly) fall back upon infantile aspsersions.
        care to see more pics of she? or me? I got lots!!

      • TheSotSays

        No no Janet you need some work on your reading comprehension.

        To make it perfectly clear, what I said was that your transplant is about to fall off from armadillo induced leprosy but not to fear because you have a lying 10 inch Democrap tongue that should fill the bill and make Chesty happy. Provided, of course, she doesn’t sail away to Dry Tortugas with me.

        You’re in bad shape Janet and very very confused. You should have gone a little easier on the Branch Davidians. You cut your own nutz off when you decided to become a Democrap cut throat.

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        comprehension? (again,,,,for the pseudo intellectuals among us) they are known to carry TB. Must be tough having your age related alzheimers inflicted sooner than the norm by your assimilation of prescription meds and ( see: Limbaugh and beck) alcoholism.

        U do speak my language occasionally!

      • TheSotSays

        Well they also use them in leprosy experiments so be careful. We don’t want parts falling off you and getting nibbled by some Reef Fish while you’re out “snorkeling.” (Snicker)

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        done many free dives to 35 ft and stayed for over a minute ( in my 20’s) still can surf 12 ft waves. Reef fish? dinner: perhaps francaise or cilantro-lime ginger vinaigrette ?
        you? GOLF.
        GOLF,,,,,,,, now THATS demanding!
        ” G O L F “

      • TheSotSays

        It’s unusual that you should renounce and shy away from the great sport of golf where one- upmanship plays such an important role.

        One of your heros, Tiger Woody, is a significant participant. Wacky Baracky, also, is said to play a lot of golf but since no one has ever actually seen him at it I suspect he’s no better at golf than he is at making girly pitches to Albert Pujols.

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        more of a Nicklaus guy as he was the name when I was a kid.
        sounds to meeeeee that U are indeed a white tyrash bigoted small dicked aging ( kike??) loser who simply is awaiting a long overdue–and supremely sought– end of your tortured existence.
        ” GOLF”………

        im a chef– a self employed chef —
        I do a weeeeee bit more than that-
        ———- but it does sound like a perfect avenue used by you for entertainment!
        still worried about your encroaching darkness?

      • TheSotSays

        A chef? Well listen Janet send over a plate of fries and gravy will you. Hold the vinegar if your implant has enough tensile strength.

        I hope you don’t pee in the sink like the pizza “chef” in West Virginia.

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        I didn’t realize u were so eloquent with that menu development! Seems U are a wanna be “foodie” and just got crippled knowing what I do for ( 100% cash) income
        NOTE: I am not a pastry chef. they are obese and diabetic. Similar in scope to your aesthetics and assimilation of poor quality ( quality??) foods

      Hitler was a child of God! If he’d killed millions of niggers too he’d be a hero today.

      • republic84

        A hero in your eyes perhaps. I doubt many would find anyone who murders any amount of Innocent people regardless of the reason a hero. Frightened cowards hide behind a sheet to vomit their ignorance. Call yourself whatever you like, you are NOT an American. People like you point out the unfortunate flaws in our rights to free speech.

      • True White Republican

        There’s no such thing as an innocent nigger, exterminating them is ridding the planet of a cancerous disease. You should be gotten rid of too.
