Michele Bachmann Speaking through Yahweh, Abraham, Maybe Chertoff, Too
Land of Ten Thousand Flakes -- OK, at least one...Break out your snow plows, North Dakota! LWOH has learned here that Michele Bachmann has recently been preaching her own brand of craaazy, apocalyptic Fire 'n Brimstone scripture to some Jewish Republican big shots in Los Angeles. She will then be keynoting something called the Take Back Washington North Dakota event in exotic Bismarck this Friday night to spread her holy, terrifying
warning word that God Himself “handed down” Israel to the United States. Bachmann threatened that if America should “pull back support for Israel”, we will all most assuredly go straight to absolute seed and “cease to exist.”
Cease to exist? Heavy stuff, here, and Miss Christian High Priestess probably is not talking locusts. More like a post-empire, pre-seventh circle of hellish, poxy repeat performance of the Christmas Crotch Bomber evil stunt that actually works, maybe? We don't know! But her ominous havoc 'n mayhem cease to exist sermon to the L.A. temple dwellers might suggest what's coming will make Sodom & Gomorrah look like a moonlit, midnight walk in Central Park with beefy security detail - if you're into that sort of thing.
Here’s a transcript of some of her remarks at the RJC event, where we briefly summarize Bachmann's cryptic, Armageddonish sermon:
“I am convinced in my heart and in my mind that if the United States fails to stand with Israel, that is the end of the United States . . . [W]e have to show that we are inextricably entwined, that as a nation we have been blessed because of our relationship with Israel, and if we reject Israel, then there is a curse that comes into play. And my husband and I are both Christians, and we believe very strongly the verse from Genesis [Genesis 12:3], we believe very strongly that nations also receive blessings as they bless Israel. It is a strong and beautiful principle.”
OK. What is likely meant here is that the U.S. only receives “blessings” when we don't piss off Rahm Emmanuel and his friends to avoid being mercilessly “cursed” at by Rahm with his overuse of the “F” word.
“Right now in my own private Bible time, I am working through Isaiah . . . and there is continually a coming back to what God gave to Israel initially, which was the Torah and the Ten Commandments, and I have a wonderful quote from John Adams that if you will indulge me [while I find it] . . . [from his February 16, 1809 letter to François Adriaan van der Kemp]:
“I will insist that the Hebrews have done more to civilize men than any other nation. If I were an atheist, and believed in blind eternal fate, I should still believe that fate had ordained the Jews to be the most essential instrument for civilizing the nations.”
We think this must have something to do with banking, although the passage “Right now, in my own private Bible time, I am working through Isaiah...” could "Isaiah" be a shadow contact involved in arms smuggling and or Nigerian money laundering?
“If I were an atheist of the other sect, who believe or pretend to believe that all is ordered by chance, I should believe that chance had ordered the Jews to preserve and propagate to all mankind the doctrine of a supreme, intelligent, wise, almighty sovereign of the universe, which I believe to be the great essential principle of all morality, and consequently of all civilization.
. . . So that is a very long way to answer your question, but I believe that an explicit statement from us about our support for Israel as tied to American security, we would do well to do that.”
This lengthy passage reveals some mystifying confusion, starting with “If I were an atheist of the other sect...” What other kind of atheist sect is there? As far as we know, there is only ONE atheist sect whose holy charter is to die like dogs – unless she means the OTHER one is GOD – which is dog spelled backwards? Of course, this business about the supreme, intelligent, wise, almighty sovereign of the universe strongly raises some secretive relationships issues, as with chemistry research agencies to sow the seeds of terrestrial life throughout the universe. Everyone else on Bachmann's non-chosen list including those who want Social Security and Medicare can totally forget about that Armageddon Afterlife psychedelia shindig in the Sky.
Hey Michele - don't forget: The wife of Lot got turned to salt because she looked behind her.
