Michele Bachmann Uses Rape to Stir Up Fear About Immigration Crisis (Video)

bachmann-immigrationWhile I’ve dealt with several online, I’ve never actually met someone face to face who voted for Michele Bachmann.  But one of these days I really want to.  I need to see firsthand the type of individual who would actually vote for this clown.  Because while there are worse politicians (though not by much), she’s easily one of the most ridiculous elected officials I’ve ever witnessed.

Take for instance her recent comments she made on CNN where she called child immigrants “invaders,” then proceeded to use rape and vehicular manslaughter to stir up fear of immigrants.

“Foreign nationals that have come into the United States are between 300 – 500,000,” Bachmann said. “My heart is broken for a female college student in Minnesota who was raped, murdered and mutilated by a foreign national who came into our country. We had a school bus full of kids in Minnesota.  Four children were killed on that school bus because an illegal alien driving a van went into that school bus.”

“My tears are crying for the family members who lost four little children on a school bus in Minnesota,” Bachmann continued.

So I guess to Michele Bachmann, rape is more acceptable if committed by an American citizen?  And I guess no children ever die in car accidents due to the negligence of American drivers?

Or are those crimes less tragic when American citizens commit them?

Honestly, I have no damn idea what the point of these comments were.

No, I take that back.  I know why she said them.  To the typical conservative who reacts based on what they hear, without thinking about what it actually means, these comments are indeed “alarming” and “terrifying.”

“How dare these illegal immigrants come to this country and commit such heinous crimes!”

Which, granted, does sound terrifying – if you’re someone who lacks the ability to think for themselves.  But when you really think about what she said, it doesn’t make any sense.

First, the vast majority of illegal immigrants (or immigrants in general) aren’t criminals.  For her to try to paint immigrants as uncontrollable violent criminals is absolutely disgusting.

Second, the hypocrisy of someone who’s an avid gun rights supporter to cite 4 deaths as a reason to come down harder on immigration is astounding.  Around 9,000 people die each year due to gun violence.  And you know what Bachmann thinks we need more of?  Guns.  

And her “tears are crying” for the families of the victims?  Please.  Twenty-six people died at Sandy Hook Elementary, yet people like her think we need more guns in this country with fewer regulations.

Michele Bachmann is an absolute embarrassment to this country.  Her last day in Congress can’t come soon enough, though I doubt she’ll be out of work for long.  Her level of ignorance, hate and vile stupidity are exactly the kind of “talent” that guarantees her future employment at Fox News.

    The dumbing down of America. When did we start to vote for people with few brains and less civility?

    • BobLoblaw

      It is old school thinking. People will vote straight ticket without doing any research. And then complain about issues!!! As a Texan I find it amazing that so many people vote against their best interests.

  • BobLoblaw

    Is this woman deaf? I find it amazing that she will not answer a simple question. She must stay up all night memorizing her talking points. She definitely has tunnel vision. It sends shivers down my spine just thinking that she wanted to be the President. Can you imagine what America would be like if she was actually elected?

  • Jonathan

    I think Charlie give Bachmann way too much credit………She’s a despicable human being………

  • Michael Doyle

    I’m also pretty sure that anyone who comes in from the southern border isn’t going to Minnesota once they get here, so maybe it’s Canadians she’s afraid of.

    • Shelley Matzelt Samples

      I don’t know about Minnesota but they are in Southeast Michigan. In the last few years, there has been a notable increase in our area.

  • StevenP

    She “sits” on the intelligence committee. Hahaha. More like she “shits” on the intelligence committee.

  • John L

    I was wondering why and where all the teathugs were saying ” how many of these illegals are going to rape our women” had been coming from the few hours..

  • FD Brian

    Michele Bachman wouldn’t need to worry about rape if she wasn’t so damn sexy….(sarcasm people)

  • Eg Kbbs

    Can’t wrap my mind that Bachmann talks about how much her heart goes out to a person who was raped but totally ignores that the reason for the current law is to protect these child refugees from sexual exploitation (repeatedly raped).

  • Michelle Grasz

    has it even been verified that this even happened? (the rape and 4 kids)…the last time she spouted her vile about vacinations causing autism cuz a lady at her ralley said so….she doesn’t always let facts come into a discussion, if ever

    • Eg Kbbs

      Had a similar question. Everytime there is a crime reported in my location and the alleged perpetrator either has a latino name or appears hispanic, the comments turn to the salvo of typical RWNJ comments on securing the borders / deportation / etc. Even when presented with evidence that the person is a 3rd generation (or more) USA Citizen, the RWNJs are invincibly ignorant.

  • surfjac

    mr. gohmert was stirring the same “rape” pot.
    That must be part of the “rwnj talking point of the week”.
    Stir the pot, scare the sheeple!

  • Veritas vos Liberabit

    Michele uses the word “penetrating” lucidly several times in this interview. Interesting!

    • giankeys luvs shemale porn

      transposing her husbands lack there of

  • gordo

    The woman is bat shit crazy, has been for years.

  • Stephen Barlow

    At least she isn’t like Louie Gohmert, who wants MILITARY ACTION against these “invaders”. Who are really refugees from ANOTHER Republican Policy caused problem.

    Send in the Marines? The TOYS FOR TOTS guys????

  • 2Smart2bGOP

    If I could one thing to bestow upon Michelle Bachmann, it would be total self awareness. She apparently lacks any.
