Michele Bachmann Rightfully Concerned About Liberals Hating America

by Jim Newell

Here’s your video of wacky Michele Bachmann on the Chris Matthews show, talkin’ bout libruls. Barack Obama is anti-American! Nancy Pelosi! Harry Reid! All liberal anti-Americans and yet they are RUNNING AMERICA. Not good! Not a good situation at all. Around 6:30 in this seven-minute clip is when she suggests the media perform a Witch Hunt to determine which members of Congress are “pro-America” and “anti-America.” [YouTube]

Hey Michele, what’s the definition of “fascist”?

This probably wasn’t just Bachmann being stupid, either. Bible Spice has been going out saying how she likes to visit ‘pro-America’ parts of the country–see the theme? I hope they both get a bad case of genital warts.

OTOH how often do you get to see Tweety speechless??

Gopherit v2.0 October 17, 2008 at 6:54 pm

Ahhhh…..there’s liberal anti-American, and then there’s OVER THE TOP anti-American.

I hope she drowns in horse semen during her next sexual frenzy.

the bf October 17, 2008 at 6:55 pm

geez, I don’t hate america – I’m just embarrassed by it.

Quietly October 17, 2008 at 6:56 pm

A bunch of Anti-Americans are running America? Is the sky falling? Is the new official religion Satanism, and are you being forced to practice it? Are conservatives being treated as second class citizens? Are the blacks turning whitey into slaves?

No? Well I guess America under anti-Americans runs about the same as America under the loving care of God’s patriots. Hmmm….

Tra October 17, 2008 at 6:56 pm

For a moment, I thought I was watching a version of the McCain crazy eyes gif, and then I realized. She does that with her actual face. All the time.

ky-jellydonuts October 17, 2008 at 6:56 pm

I yield the floor to the editors of Esquire, who named her one of the ten worst members of Congress:

“One gets the impression that if, in the name of “traditional values,” Bachmann could rescind the vote for women, she would. Her vacant, wild eyes recall a doomsday prophet, or one of Charlie Manson’s girls. Equal parts religious hack and party hack, she’s got spunk and not much else.”

Canuckledragger October 17, 2008 at 6:57 pm

Since there’s nothing MORE “un-American” than witch-hunting, let’s start by investigating this witch-hunter and, once found guilty, burn her at the stake.

Actually, fuck the investigation. Let’s just burn her anyway. I’ll bring the marshmallows.

Yellow Cake October 17, 2008 at 6:58 pm

I think we’ve found our witch.

damndems! October 17, 2008 at 6:59 pm

Long time lurker, first time poster. I know I’m supposed to say something snarky (hilarious) here, but I watched this and was horrified.

Van der Whoville sure worked herself into a lather in response though. I loved it:

4tehlulz October 17, 2008 at 6:59 pm

Somehow, all federal funding for Ms. Bachmann’s district dries up the next fiscal year.

That’s change we can believe in.

american mutt October 17, 2008 at 7:02 pm

This isn’t snarky but Jeremiah is not “anti-american”. He maybe a bloated, stupid, preaching, fire-breather but that’s doesn’t equate to “anti-american”.

pdiddycornchips October 17, 2008 at 7:02 pm

If only the American people could experience the way the “pro-America” guys run things in Washington for say, six or eight years, they would see how really awesome they are at this governing thing.

Keram2 October 17, 2008 at 7:03 pm

I’m actually genuinely curious. Do you think she actually believes the crap that comes out of her mouth? Or is this all some political bullshit to garner votes?

regisgoat October 17, 2008 at 7:05 pm

It’s true! Hopey is the most liberal member of the senate, just like John Kerry was the most liberal member of the senate in 2004. Guess who’ll be the most liberal member of the senate in 2012? Whoever the democrats run for president, that’s who.

I believe this is the very witch Palin’s minister was trying to get rid of – how did she get out of Africa? What is wrong with our Homeland Security? And how, how, how, did she end up in Minnesota? Lutherans must be so embarrassed…

Say this pernicious, bone-headed nazi was accidentally trapped in a cave with her long lost sibling Kitty Harris, and Sarah Palin was with them, would it be wrong of me to enjoy them resorting to cannibalism before they died of thirst?

[re=138828]damndems![/re]: Welcome! I was shocked too. I mean, I know ya got politicians who say crazy things but this is beyond everything. How can she she query Congress when she need only look to the White House? The last eight years provided a Presidency consisting of the worst collection of irresponsible evil-doers ever to undermine American pride and self-confidence: “The last and greatest betrayal of the last and greatest of human dreams”.

No matter; it’s over now. The poison has all bled out. It’s been at a great cost and a whole generation is about to pay further for its venom; but at least America really is on the right track now. Happy days – even as people hand back the keys to their houses and hit the road – happy days.

guess ya all know what happened to napoleon in waterloo…

so i’m kinda sceptical about her further career.

2druk2phluq October 17, 2008 at 7:44 pm

I wondered who that crazy woman was. I saw Tweety looking scared, and then there was like five minutes of this crazy bitch talking about how everything was ACORN and Obama and Ayers or some shit. And then there was a shot of Tweety going, “Duh.” And then there was more crazy bitch, so I threw my cat at the television. The cat, having been trained, understood the command to change the channel (the remote is broken).

MSNBC is reporting that the Obama campaign is trying to get a special prosecutor appointed to investigate the McCain/Palin campaign and their connection to voter fraud and ACORN. The argument, as I understand it, is the same argument that was made in New Mexico…that McCain and republicans in DC are pressuring the justice department to come down on ACORN.

Love the Wiki:
Bachmann had grown up in a Democratic family, but says she became a Republican during her senior year at Winona State. She told the (Minneapolis) Star Tribune that she was reading Gore Vidal’s novel Burr: “He was kind of mocking the Founding Fathers and I just thought, ‘What a shit. I just remember reading the book, putting it in my lap, looking out the window and thinking, ‘You know what? I don’t think I am a Democrat. I must be a nutcase.’”[7]

Do you think she is a secret muslin [sic] ay-rab who had Michael Jackson surgery so that she could infiltrate the white christian community?

I heard she had an affair with a crack dealin’ kingpin and had a partial birth abortion to get rid of the embarrassing long pig. I don’t know if it is true or not but that is what I heard.

Actually there are only two districts–the 6th (Rep. Bachmann) and 2nd (Rep. Kline)–that are McPalin strongholds so that’s where McPalin has gone to hold their rallies. Click: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/coleen-rowley/wrong-lesson-from-mccains_b_134343.html for more details about the paradoxes involved in this last McCain Rally in Lakeville, Minnesota (MN’s 2nd District).

Not at all. When asked what differentiates the two, a wise man once said “Canuckistanis are Americans who read.” I would add that that we pray to the Yahweh of our choice, not our guns, but that’s debatable these days.

You might also enjoy being plugged into our hive-mind of smug [aka "We're not THEM!"] Your tax dollars won’t be used to bail out broke banks and failed insurers, because we don’t have any of those. You won’t send your kin to foreign wars prosecuted under false pretenses. You’ll also enjoy universal health care [tho' it needs improvement], access to cheap Pharma, and the best reefer on the planet, at an affordable price.

On the downside, it’s tundra for ten months a year, with two months of hard sledding. And you’d better quickly get accustomed to being hated by Yanquis for being smug.

Again, on the Wiki… Yeah, WonkPac!
On the evening of October 17, 2008, Tinklenberg’s opponent, Bachmann, appeared on Hardball with Chris Matthews. Her statements about liberalism and anti-American views were quickly spread around liberal blogs such as The Daily Kos and Democratic Underground. Because of the widespread outrage felt due to her comments by readers of these pages, donations to Tinklenberg’s campaign reached over 100,000 dollars overnight, mostly in small donations from around the country[10]. In response, Tinklenberg wrote, “The last few hours have been nothing short of astounding. Since Congresswoman Michele Bachmann appeared on MSNBC’s Hardball earlier tonight, there’s been a deluge of support unlike anything we have seen.”

Just think of the opportunities to turn America into a world that Michele can be proud of! — and for those who haven’t checked it out – you MUST check out her website – she has a page devoted to her definition of Minnesota “values.” (tip – there seems to be mostly 1 value, and it goes bang.)

OMG! I am loving the attention this race is getting — Tinklenberg is doing a townhall meeting about a mile from my house on Tuesday, I am going to try and get off work so I can check it out. I have been forwarding that link along with a message to everyone and pasting it everywhere!


Michelle Bachmann was on Hardball on MSNBC yesterday. She was spouting such radical BS calling Obama and liberals anti-American and said there should be an expose focusing on cleaning out congress to get rid of the anti-Americans.

The segment hit youtube, and the blogs (Wonkette!) went nuts. All of a sudden this is getting national attention, and someone posted this link: http://www.actblue.com/entity/fundraisers/18660 and it got forwarded and pasted all over the place.

It goes to Elwyn Tinklenberg’s fundraising site. Before Bachmann apeared on Hardball, he had approx. $3,000 in contributions. I just checked, and since that segment aired yesterday, he has over $140,000 in contributions. And it is coming in from all over the country!

The power of the internet! If you go to this link you can see the segment that is getting everyone so riled up: http://www.actblue.com/page/nonewmccarthy

Loves it!

nyhfrog October 18, 2008 at 1:20 pm

This has probably been mentioned before. But it’s good to repeat it. There is a petition on Huffington Post to censure Bachman.

I’ve been voting for Democrats and progressives for 20 years and have been accused of being un-American for doing so that entire time. This is the year that ends.

Since this is Wonkette:

Hey Bachman,

I cat believe that this is happening again. I hope we learned from the McCarthy era. If they label Obama a socialist and do a good enough convincing the Fox viewers of it… then fear will dominate this election and dare I say… Obama will loose. THEN… and I hate refering to books when Im pontificating but man, if McCain wins we will have a similar reality thats laid forward in America2014. Its a sequel to the classic 1984 and it lays out the situation Bush and Cheney could have brought upon us…. and a reality that if McCain and Palin are elected will surely happen. Its a Orwellian tale and man is it scary. Wire tapping, surveilance, tests of your Americaness, all sorts of horrific stuff.

Love it that Tinkles has made over 230k off this McCarthyesque rant. Fuck yourself much?

It’s all very clear to me now though! Obama’s attending Harvard, working very hard all his life, community organizing, bringing people together, leading a life of service with the inevitable run for the Presidency. It was all a plot because if he wins he plans to destroy the country because he HATES it, so, so much. Dear Michele, people who run for public office do not hate America, and saying so cheapens us all.

My favorite part is that Obama called this when he said that he would say a lot of things during the campaign but he would NEVER question his opponent’s patriotism, because “We ALL love our country, we ALL put our country first.”

I hope Sunday goes quickly because seeing her angry mug is giving me the brain hurt. New post pls.

Believing intelligence and “knowing” a fact is completely different.
Powell is a liar.
Powell knew that Bush told the NSC in January 2001 he wanted to attack Iraq.
Powell knew that Cheney pressured Tenet, CIA boss to ignore the false documents and false claims
on WMD.
Powell is a liar and wants to be Secretary of State for Obama.
The USA will remain in Iraq for the entire Obama Presidency.

Nader is our only chance. Obama sucks.

Interesting logic. So Obama suckz because war criminal Powell endorsed him. Man, that means I should endorse Nadir. Now Nadir suckz too – well, I’m not a war criminal yet, but I have some pretty bad qualitiies.

Dear Vig,
If you believe Nader, that his campaign is about challenging the 2, flawed, major parties…why doesn’t he run for senate?…the house?…state senate?…city council?… somewhere he could make some impact on someone, somehow.
But NO. He’s a performer that no one’s ever heard of, demanding to play Carnegie Hall.

I feel as if I do owe Michelle Bachmann a ‘Thank You’ – my Republican fiance has come over to the anti-American side of the spectrum, and Mizz Bachmann is part of the reason. A few weeks back she was on Larry King and when they were discussing the 4,000+ troops that have died in Iraq, Bachmann stated ‘Well, they did volunteer’ This caused such anger in the fiance that we had to change channels because he stated that she was giving him chest pains. Maybe Bachmann is a plant, and she is forced to say such asinine BS so that she can weed out the anti-Americans posing as Republicans by causing them to go into cardiac arrest for not agreeing with what she says? How’s that for a conspiracy? Put that in your pipe and smoke it, Vigilante!

[re=139370]vigilante[/re]: There, that wasn’t so hard, was it? Not very good, but much better than the mindless ranting. Now, if you can at least maintain a modicum of sanity, could you please present some sort of cogent argument for a Nader presidency? Considering that I’ve already voted, it won’t do much to sway me, but I am curious as to how he would be better than the other candidates. Here’s a high-level overview of how I see the candidates (obviously I should have put more thought into this):

McCain/Palin: Tax cuts for the rich, golden showers for the rest of us. Pretty much everyone not already rich fucked. War is good. Stick it out in Iraq until the rapture, maybe start a few more wars and hope for Armageddon. Socialized losses good, socialized medicine bad. Protect the wealthy at all costs. You betcha!

Obama/Biden: Tax cuts for the middle class, modest increase in taxes for the wealthy bringing us back up to the levels we had under Reagan (not really all that helpful, granted, but at least it is something. Focus on Afghanistan/Pakistan for the Global War of Terror, hopefully get us out of Iraq eventually, but no real promises as to when. Hopefully work on global health care, but most likely will fail as insurance company lobbyists and every fucking republican will throw a shit-fit. If smart, and lucky, will get us out of deficit spending in ~8 years (at which time, the idiots who voted in Bush will vote in the next incarnation of the soulless little anal fistula and we’ll start this ride all over again).

Ron Paul: We leave Iraq immediately, drop the federal reserve, return to the gold standard and everyone pretty much left to do whatever the hell they want (as long as it doesn’t involve being gay or getting an abortion or trying to protect the environment). No longer a need for Rennissance fairs and SCA events as we slide back into the middle ages. The border fence is extended to surround the entire fucking country. Every other country in the world chips in a few extra bucks to make it taller. TruckNutz for everybody!

Ralph Nader/Paco the Parrot: Get out of Iraq, ban Ford Pintos (oh hey, they don’t make the Pinto anymore? Damn, what’s out there now?) and require seat belts for motorcycles. Umm, what else?

Other: ?

[re=139400]vigilante[/re]: Colon, not colen. It’s not that hard to type. Try it. As for the insurance bit, why would I be expecting Colin Powell or Obama to lower my premiums? I think that in your blind rage you may have mistaken me for someone else. So do you have an answer for my earlier questions about Nader, or are you happy just continuing to show yourself as violent, stupid and vulgar? To be honest, there’s nothing wrong with vulgarity, but it helps if you mix it up a little. Twatwaffle. Cocksucking turd. Asshat. Fuckface. Santorum. See, there are five more phrases you can add to your repertoire. Mix those in with your assholes and morons and you’ll be a bit less boring. Unfortunately, I can’t help you with being stupid or violent. Enjoy your game.

The gents at Esquire seem to believe this “spunk” stuff is some kind of magic. Come on. Bachman is stupid and has a big mouth. At some point in her life she learned if you keep yelling shit, people will have to interrupt you to stop you, and most of them are too polite or whatever, so you keep the floor. But really, people, since when were women with no brains and big mouths a scarce item?

Loud, stupid drunks you can find in every bar in creation. I guess the remarkable thing about Bachman (if it’s true) is, she does this sober. There’s a solid tradition of people just like her in Congress but weren’t they all drunks? Except maybe for that total asshole from Pennsylvania, the one with about thirty kids, whose name God has finally granted me the ability to finally forget.

Point is, if that’s “spunk,” then the Macaca asshole Allen had “spunk,” too. He was, like, oozing spunk from every hole. It’s like, Kucinich would qualify as “spunky,” except he’s not quite dumb enough and he occasionally lets other people talk.

[re=139410]artbot2000[/re]: Art: In defense of Esquire — which, in all fairness, occasionally has some good writing – I think the “spunk” the editorial staff had in mind was that used as a euphemism for semen.

You know, as in: “Bachman was oozing spunk from every orifice — much as Vigilante used to in his Navy days, when he would return from his ‘rear guard’ duties at some of the more aggressive gay bars in Norfork . . .

You Obama lovers tuned out when he keeps claiming he’s going to get you lower insurance premiums.
Then why are you voting for him? It must be his Wall Street bail out vote, and his fund the war votes except the time Hillary and him waited until the last minute before they both voted against
funding the war.

His wife said, “I’ve never been proud of America.” Then when the shit hit the fan she became proud of America.

So what I’ve gotten from reading this whole fucking thread is that Michelle Bachmann is a psychotic cunt (I knew this already) and vigilante is a violently repressed bottom who joined the navy for the semen, but was confused by the homonym (I knew this already)…. So all that reading to learn nothing new. Thanks Wonkette!

I couldn’t say if it’s retentive or expulsive, but his odd preoccupation with uploading one’s head into one’s own ass, is very disturbing. His cruelty of speech reaches out in a threatening, physical sense, and the fact that he would bring George Washington into his delusion goes way too far. “George Washington would have shot all you Obama freaks. You don’t know shit about Obama.” Once again, he obsesses with feces. I looked at his silly blog a bit. He seems to be an Alex Jones wannabee, but lacks the social skills to garner a following. People like vigilante go to Sarah Palin rallies and shout out the words that lead to the killing of hope for this country. Now I’m going to return to my elitist viewing of “Masterpiece Contemporary” on PBS.

[re=139156]Canuckledragger[/re]: I am sorry – but I hate – really anywhere that isn’t DC, NY or LA. I cannot live Canada Dry, though I don’t fault others for trying.

Free healthcare maybe the Cat’s meow. But for a paltry pittance of my weekly salary, I get some pretty standard health insurance coverage that allows me to see world-class, smart doctors with good degrees, pleasing bedside manners and clean, quite waiting rooms with CNN Health playing on flat screens. They know all the latest preventions and treatment. They even give me their home numbers. I enjoy that.

As for my tax dollars bailing out banks? Yes, tots sucks; but can you, as a Canadian, really afford to stop and paying attention to who and what is getting your tax dollars when the increases are coming so fast and furious up there? Sales taxes, incomes taxes, sin taxes, entitlement programs I hear rise every year- I am surprised having a teenage in Canada isn’t cause for bankruptcy.

And the tundra….call me crazy, but if I had to give up living in Los Angeles thereby giving up year-round surfing, camping, hiking, skiing, jet skiing, baseball, outdoor fairs, and exhibitions, at least I need the consolation of cultural meccas like of Austria or New York. Is “watered-down Americana” even considered a “culture” though?

Sorry, man, the whole Canada thing is like saying – “I hate Sarah Palin winning the election so much I am moving to Alaska!”

WIDTAP October 20, 2008 at 2:35 pm

Give me Ottawa, Quebec or even Fredericton any day. eh?

OMG This nutcase is on the world stage now. Minnesota is a really great place, trust me. The 6th district is home to a lot of suburbs and the occasional megachurch. The main problem is the Dems ran a sincere, honest good woman who just was not a good candidate for office in ’06. Our idiot Bachman was the head prolife nutjob (or was that nut prolife headjob?)in the MN state senate and she won. Her alleged good looks (lost on me, but I only like liberal New York gals)have of course catapulted her to the top of the talk show charts.
Maybe she finally skewered herself but who knows these days?
