Michele Bachmann Heads Further Off the Deep End, Claims Obama Has Brought About “End Times”

michele-bachmannYes, Michele Bachmann is still a United States Congressperson and yes, she is still on the House Committee on Intelligence. Let that sink in before reading the rest of this story (which is not satire, by the way).

…. sigh ….

Speaking on Jan Markell’s “Understanding the Times” apocalyptic-themed radio program on Saturday, Bachmann showed us once again that yes, she is absolutely capable of wading further into the waters of utter insanity. If you can stomach reading it (oh, and there’s audio too), Bachmann said:

“President Obama waived a ban on arming terrorists in order to allow weapons to go to the Syrian opposition… Your listeners, US taxpayers, are now paying to give arms to terrorists including Al Qaeda. This happened and as of today the United States is willingly, knowingly, intentionally sending arms to terrorists. Now what this says to me, as I’m a believer in Jesus Christ, as I look at the End Times scripture, this says to me that the leaf is on the fig tree and we are to understand the signs of the times, which is your ministry, we are to understand where we are in God’s end times history…  The prophets longed to look into the future to see these days of His coming! Rather than seeing this as a negative, we need to rejoice! Maranatha Come Lord Jesus, His day is at hand!”

And for good measure, she added:

“And so when we see up is down and right is called wrong, when this is happening, we were told this; that these days would be as the days of Noah. We are seeing that in our time. Yes it gives us fear in some respects because we want the retirement that our parents enjoyed. Well they will, if they know Jesus Christ.”

You hear that, folks? Praise the Lord, Jesus is coming! President Obama armed Syrian rebels, so therefore… Jesus!

Now don’t get me wrong, I am not in any way trying to demean Christians, Christianity as a whole, the Bible, Jesus or anything about any religious belief. But come on… There’s a thin line between devout Christianity and believing in Jesus, and twisting that into something that borders mental illness and completely contorts Christianity to suit your own insidious agenda. If anybody is demeaning Christianity, it’s Michele Bachmann.

Just look at this woman’s own words. They don’t even make sense! 

“This says to me that the leaf is on the fig tree and we are to understand the signs of the times, which is your ministry, we are to understand where we are in God’s end times history…  The prophets longed to look into the future to see these days of His coming! Rather than seeing this as a negative, we need to rejoice! Maranatha Come Lord Jesus, His day is at hand!”

“And so when we see up is down and right is called wrong, when this is happening, we were told this; that these days would be as the days of Noah.”

Is she saying that because she exists, that is proof that we’re in the “end times?” Because her and her fellow tea party Republicans are the only ones in government who have proven time and time again that they think “up is down and right is called wrong.” Feeding the poor and healing the sick? Wrong! Proven science and history? Wrong! 

Seriously, Rep. Bachmann has always been a little off her rocker, but it seems like ever since she made the announcement that she won’t be seeking re-election, she’s used that as an excuse to trade the rocker in for an apocalyptic broom and pointed hat. Gone are the rather amusing days of talking into the wrong camera and looking crazy on magazine covers; she’s now conducting crazed press conferences in Egypt and hitting the airwaves on Armageddon radio to apparently sing the praises of President Obama for summoning the return of Jesus.

Aside from the utter absurdity and borderline insanity of her comments, let’s not lose sight of how terribly misguided she is on her understanding of the “Last Days.” Bachmann, like millions of others in our country today, would do herself well to reassess whether she truly knows prophecy and when “Jesus will return.” As my colleague Arik Bjorn has pointed out in a fantastic piece which I’d highly encourage checking out:

Suddenly Christianity’s coded comfort codex is turned into an Agatha Christie whodunit.  And each passing generation, further removed from the text’s original intent and increasingly anxious that Jesus has not yet returned as long ago promised, interprets Revelation more and more as a Hollywood disaster film.  As one of my theology professors once put it:  “In the past millennium, not one generation has gone by without Christians insisting that the Book of Revelation points to Christ’s imminent return, and that all of the text’s cryptic references can easily be mapped to the current political world.  And every single generation has been spectacularly wrong.

I don’t have a problem with people believing what they want to believe, as long as they aren’t doing harm to others in the process. We have the First Amendment for a reason, and even the craziest get to utilize their rights. But there’s a difference between nutjobs like those associated with the Westboro Baptist Church utilizing their First Amendment rights (as disgusting as they might be), and a whacko like Michele Bachmann utilizing hers. She is a sitting member of Congress, with direct influence over matters of intelligence in our country. She helps to oversee the CIA, FBI, NSA, DOJ and several other extremely important (and sensitive) departments. And here she is, expressing her belief that President Barack Obama has brought us to the Last Days.

Congresswoman, do us all a favor and just resign from your position in Congress. It’s obvious you’re more interested in expressing your opinions on Armageddon rather than doing any sort of actual governing — you’d do the whole country (which you claim to love) a good deed by stepping down immediately.

I’d highly encourage everybody reading this to stop by Rep. Bachmann’s Facebook page and let her know your thoughts, as well.

    She does need to resign.

  • Rita Jane Clark-Smith

    look at that face – the face of a woman who is lost, and still talking.
    How did she ever get on the House Committee on Intelligence – tells
    something about the direction the GOP in Congress headed towards and
    why, today, we are in the midst of an American disaster.

    • joy

      Because her and her other nut jobs Republican (tealaban) are putting us on this road. I am a Christian. however everything that they are doing is not vey Christian like . So I guess if we want to look at it through their eyes they have brought us all right where we are today. You are not suppose to let the hungry go without food and sick go without care. If we need to get these wack jobs out of office . Cant we the people Fire them they work for us. Right?

      • meatwad_SSuppet

        Removing them would require stepping over the occupied media and the zionnazis control of it all. Recall elections are not easy if you are going against their flow.

    • Florida Guy

      Yes she has that ‘crazed’ look. One day she will implode I think.

    • meatwad_SSuppet

      When they play the zionNazis game, they can get into places you could never imagine.

    Hopefully she will get raptured up to heaven real soon

      Right? She should be HAPPY about The End Times!

      • Finnsmom1

        To some people, superiority is a sport. It says more about them than it does you.

      • Eric RoM

        You miss the point: if Obama is bringing the End Times, why is Bachmeister opposing him?

      • KatieDancer

        Go with it Michele!

      • meatwad_SSuppet

        This is what I’ve seen as their NWO, biblical acceptance of their beast and antichrists dominion over the whirled. And their love of the jewish fraud of an israel that can do no good.

  • Arik


    U.S. voters must discontinue putting lunatics in office. Civilization depends upon it! Bachmann is at least a partial reflection of the rural Minnesotans (my home state!) who put her, and kept her, in office these many years. Shame on them!

    The Book of Revelation was a letter of comfort to first-century Christians, undergoing persecution for their faith. Representative Bachmann, if she really believes in the literal truth of the text, has altogether forgotten the curse contained therein:

    “I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this scroll: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to that person the plagues described in this scroll. And if anyone takes words away from this scroll of prophecy, God will take away from that person any share in the tree of life and in the Holy City, which are described in this scroll.”

    You would think that would prevent the likes of MB from going off the deep end. But it shows her overall hubris: she thinks she is even above the exhortations of the Bible she literally invokes.

    • Jeffrey Sparks

      I agree, people need to vote “not crazy” when in the booth. However, there are a fairly significant amount of people whose only education is in this. Even though they don’t even know the Bible either, they believe this garbage is happening. How do you teach those people? How do you get them to see they are voting against themselves?

      • meatwad_SSuppet

        Educate them on the liars source of their religious script, might be a start.

  • Anthonij

    Let us all contemplate for a moment what would ever happen if somehow the Tea Party led Republican party were to gain control of two of the three main foci of power — the two houses and the presidency — to go along with the strongly right leaning Supreme Court. Imbeciles and bigots of Bachmann’s ilk would be given ever more influence in policy making by their corporate puppet masters like the Kochs and we would have two evils working together to pass laws: the fundamentalist Judeo-Christians together with the capitalist oligarchy.

    Imagine how grim that would be.

    • Brent Thibault

      Then I HIGHLY suggest someone with half a brain start teaching the poor and the dumb of America the difference between right and nutcracker wrong.

      • Finnsmom1

        It’s easier to fool people than convince them they’ve been fooled.

    • Karkadann

      “Imagine how grim that would be.”
      Well, that is not very hard.
      Just look at Afghanistan. Look at Arabia. look at Nazi Germany. Look at stalinist Soviet Union.
      Totalitarianism is, in the end, always pretty much the same.

    • CherMoe

      It kinda looks like they’re in control of the House right now.

      • Anthonij

        I think we are all well aware of that. My comment was about the frightening spectre of them getting control of either the Senate or the White House as well, which would enable them to cause a far greater degree of trouble, esp. in light of what they are now doing with very limited power.

    • Alicia Lambdin-Slagle

      Kim not all Christians are like her. Believe it or not Christians do believe in science and know that the earth is not flat. That is something atheists believe to make themselves feel superior. Science discovers what God created!

      • Lmaris

        No, science discovers what happened and what is happening. Theists insist some deity is acting or has acted despite absolutely no proof the deity exists outside the theists’ immagination.

      • Kim Wilson-Young

        I did not say all christians. I know a few with common sense. But why do we have to live the way they think we should. It’s freedom OF & FROM religion. If they get control of government it will be like living under the Taliban. These people control with fear, if that don’t work what’s next.

    I think your trying to patronize these people instead of calling them what they fucking are. Lunatics. christian, bible thumbing jeebuz lunatics!!! claiming you know what happens when we die makes you a fucking liar!!!believing it makes you crazy! i am done tip toeing around these jesus psychos. I dont care, they have ruined this country, completely ruined it!! if you cant tell I am an ATHEIST!

    • Alicia Lambdin-Slagle

      Louis, do you really think you know everything? Only someone who would make such an statement thinks they do. I guess you can count me in as one of your lying, crazy lunatics. I would call you narrow minded. Just because you have never experienced the Holy Spirit and the love of Jesus Christ doesn’t make it not real for the millions of believers!! By the way I am a democrat and thinks the Tea Party that is using God for their own agenda have to go. Just because someone says they are a Christian does not mean they are.

      • Lmaris

        Okay I will count you in the group of crazy lunatics. You do not get to decide who is a Christian. They claim to be Christians, though you disagree with which parts of the bible they feel are important and which to ignore, you do the same thing. Ergo, also a crazy lunatic.

      • Alicia Lambdin-Slagle

        No I meant that just because someone says they are something does not mean they are. One of my favorite says is “Sitting in church doesn’t make you a Christian any more than sitting in the garage makes you a car”. I never said anything about the Bible and what parts I feel are important and which are not. I feel that every word of the Bible is from God so it is important. Just because you don’t understand it doesn’t make it not true.. You are the one who is angry and so convinced that you are right and anyone who does not agree with you is crazy. There will be one day in every ones life when they will discover if God is real, the day we die.

      • meatwad_SSuppet

        I’m with Louis. When you preach as fact that which is only your faith, you are performing the ‘false witness’ game. Take that to your hell with your kind please. Right, you have no fear of your actions placing you into your hell because deep down you know it ain’t real.

  • Florida Guy

    Christians have thought they were living in the end times ever since Jesus died. No matter what era they were living in, it seemed bad enough to be the end time. But the end never came. Is the world really worse today than it ever was in the last 2000 years? We’ve seen slavery, pillaging, genocide, torture, atomic bombs, plagues, starvation, warfare, floods, volcanoes…generally speaking, life for most of the planet was wretched up until recently, and it is still wretched for a large percent of the population. But it’s not as bad today as it was in past eras. That is obvious. So why does she think things are so bad that we are NOW in the end time? Because we have a black president perhaps?

    • duh

      What you just said is exactly the days of noah attitude.

    • meatwad_SSuppet

      Maybe their thoughts on it are a “non-christian” muslim in office. Why do they focus on the guys middle name and not his jewish first name and jewish mother??

  • SHaTRO

    Oh, and Fox News is the best example of “up is down” and “wrong is right” I have seen in decades.
    And by the way: 18
    U.S.C. § 371 – Conspiracy Against the U.S. Government. Courts have
    ruled that “proof that the United States has been defrauded under this
    statute does not require any showing of monetary or proprietary loss.”
    The government can show intent to defraud by proving “any willful
    impairment of a legitimate function of government, whether or not the
    improper acts or objective are criminal under another statute.”

  • katherine norton malek

    Only a few more months of her left, thank God & all the Saints. {pun} Nevertheless, as she’s recently shown – there’s still plenty of time for her to cause collateral damage. It’s a proven psychological fact that individuals under extreme stress have gone over-the- (religious)-top. Given the investigation into her campaign fund usage & pressure from ex-campaign workers who’re still haven’t paid from her presidential grasp, she’s kind of backed into a pressure cooker corner (probably the very reason she announced she will not run again). Venturing a pretty logical guess that her recent wackier than wacky remarks are a result of her coming unglued under said campaign fund investigation. After Jan. 1 – we’ll probably see her on a street corner, haggard & in need of a shower carrying a “The End Is Near” sign and shouting “SINNERS REPENT”. Call the men in white coats.

  • Janet Lingel Aldrich

    Well, whether it pleases your viewpoint or not, from a conservative Christian standpoint, up IS down, wrong IS right and those are the kind of things we’re supposed to notice.

    I love how someone you all disagree with or don’t understand is automatically “mentally ill”. Isn’t that what the Soviets did with people THEY didn’t agree with?

    • Paul

      Not being a christian, I will not get into your dogma. But listening to Michelle Bachmann over the last 2-3 years, especially during the campaign, one cannot arrive to any other conclusion. The stuff that she says is not just “disagreement” or “misunderstanding.” It is far beyond what any reasonable person would say.

      For example, I totally disagree with Newt Gingrich, but I don’t think he’s crazy. Same goes for Bill Krystol, to name another. But when you listen to this woman, and to Ann Coulter, and Sean Hannity, one has to wonder whether they are trying to deceive their audiences, or they truly believe the crap that comes forth from their mouths.

    • mutatron

      Oh yeah, it’s just because people disagree with her, that’s the ticket. It couldn’t have anything to do with facts, because truth is relative, and we’re all winners.

  • CherMoe

    Bachmann herself is one of the Republican terrorists. How dare she point the finger at others? She’s also nuts in the head, along with Cruz and a whole bunch of their cronies. It’s no wonder the U.S. is going down the tubes. What type of stupid people vote these idiots in to office anyway?

    • meatwad_SSuppet

  • Cheryl Williams

    Damn Ronald Reagan for shutting down the asylums! Bachmann is a Dominionist, they aren’t exactly Christian even though they claim to be. They believe that they have to occupy government office in order to bring America to a theocracy so that Jesus can come back. We need to open all of those asylums back up, put big gaudy crosses on them and once all the Dominionists are inside, shut the doors, put them in straight jackets and place them in rubber rooms. Commitment is necessary because they are clearly a danger to themselves and others!

    • Lmaris

      Yes, dominists ARE Christians. The fact you would rather they were not doesn’t change they fact that they are. Do love how the semi-rational Christians try to distance themselves from the bat-sh#t wing of their religion, but lump all Muslims, Jews, Hindus, or atheists in one size fits all for each group.

    And even if one was to believe in her view, then that would mean Pres Obama had no control over any of this, he would be the puppet her god put in place.

    As a Wiccan I am genuinely offended that you would insinuate that the next step beyond crazy is becoming a witch. Us witches here on the west coast have our feet on the ground and many of us are loyal progressives and activists. We would appreciate it if you retract your statement about trading in crazy for a broom. Thanks! Oh, and Bachmann Is a loon. I can’t believe she was elected by thinking people… What *were* they thinking?!?!

  • F1nn3as

    A number of christianists have been seeking the “end of times” for a number of years. Mrs. Bachmann is not unique. She, as are a number of like minded folks, believe that now they are close to being able to precipitate ‘Armageddon’ thus fulfilling prophesy and getting their Jesus to return.

  • KatieDancer

    Fig leaves? She’s looking REALLY frazzled and haggard.

  • robynquinn

    I don’t like republicans or democrats, but as a Christian I love everyone. Rather, I don’t believe that either side can save us. But, I’ve read Revelation, and Jesus is coming back! Very soon! Michelle is NOT crazy, she’s a realist. And she didn’t add or take away from the book of Revelation – she’s simply trying to interpret it and the ability to decode the last book of the Bible wasn’t made available until now…as even the Bible tells us that no one was given the ability to decode what was written therein until the time came for the beginning of the end…which we are in. Read Matthew 24 and Revelation 6 to see for yourself. How can you judge anyone or anything without reading it and researching the truth that is there first? I’m so tired of people saying that Christians are crazy when we are going by the ONLY WORD that is truth, that will NEVER fail us, and that cannot be distorted on its own…Others can distort it and I”M NOT AT ALL SAYING THAT MICHELLE BACHMAN IS OR ISN’T DISTORTING IT BECAUSE I DON’T REALLY UNDERSTAND THE FULL OF WHAT SHE WAS TRYING TO SAY AND MEDIA CANNOT BE TRUSTED ANYWAYS…EVEN THE ONE’S THAT BRING THE DARKNESS INTO THE LIGHT WHOM I FULLY RESPECT FOR BEING OPEN AND HONEST.

    • meatwad_SSuppet

      But your book also describes the adversary to a t, and your Jesus confesses to that description as him in the second to the last words attributed to him in rev 22:16. Makes sense that most christians behave as devils subjects when their Jesus is also known as Lucifer.

  • Paul Hanes

    Yes what a nutcase. Problem is that there are many many more people like her in congress. President Carter has warned about these people and their closeness to the Bush Whitehouse and the military industrial complex. WHat the Christians look forward to is the return of Christ. Sounds nice. Unfortunately they believe that Most of the world dies and is destroyed and uninhabitable… and this is a good thing. The preconditions to this is The Jews Reunited to the home land, surround Jerusalem (illegal westbank settlements) and the anit christ is getting about pretending to be good. All this comes about fmisinterpretaion in the Kingjames Bible about the ‘end of the age’ Piceies the fish…. To now read ”the end of the world’ I am for what its worth an athiest. These doomsdayers do not care about screwing up the world as god will fix it all. Ie dont care about Depleted Uranium, Destroying the world or Shutting down congress for that matter. There are hundreds like her in COngress and across both parties.

    Bachmann is a nut job, but in all fairness she is partially right. Al Qaeda is most definitely involved with the Syrian rebels and both they and the rebels are guilty of numerous human rights abuses in this war.

    What kind of drugs is this woman on?…or maybe she needs to be put on something, I mean really enough is enough!

  • DaddyPro

    Hysterical psychosis aside, she is right about one thing: the U.S. is knowingly sending help to the Syrian rebels, and some of them are Al Qaeda.


    The retirement our parents enjoyed was created by the middle class, who are under attack. Michelle, you really need to shut your mouthhole, the sewage that is leaking out of it would make my parents barf.

    She rightfully feels the ‘end is upon us’ as she’s buried under campaign finance improprieties and ex-staffers still not paid for their work on her aborted presidential bid. Yes, the end is indeed upon Michelle Bachman and Amen to that. Psyche ward – she is a comin’.

    It’s amazing how hypocritical these right wing loonies can be, quoting the bible whenever they get the chance, while ignoring the REAL message of the Bible in their daily workings. How about this Bible verse…

    Matthew 25:35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

    37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

    40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

    So, Michele, when you voted to cut food stamps, food programs for the poor and children, and voted against an extension of unemployment benefits, you NOT ONLY did it for the poor, needy, unemployed, you did it to the very Christ you CLAIM to follow!

    And every time Bachman opens her mouth, we wish it were end times.

    Dear Mr. Barr:
    As a practicing Witch and — along with most of my co-believers — a committed liberal, I take exception to your characterization of Michelle Bachmann as “trad[ing] the rocker in for an apocalyptic broom and pointed hat.” We Witches are so very tired of being the trite go-to image for every nut-job, especially every female nut-job, whose antics make it into the media. We are no more crazy than any other religious movement, and considerably less so than the likes of Michelle Bachmann. Unlike her, we’re pro-science, pro-environment, pro-women, pro-freedom, and anti-theocratic.
    Using the ‘witch’ image for Michelle Bachmann is not only insulting to Witches, it’s illogical: a far more accurate image for a bigot like her would be a burning cross.

    I thought we already had the end of times 3 times in the last 5 yrs.

  • Rusti

    I don’t know whether I’m more concerned about her sanity (or lack thereof) or the sanity of all those people who actually voted this wingnut into office! Weird!

  • tsolie

    I wonder why those who think the end times are near worry about the national debt.
