Bachmann compares nation’s economic woes to Halocaust

Rep. Michelle Bachmann: What, me worry?

Michelle Bachmann, one of the intelligence-starved bimbos who generate orgasms in the intellectually-challenged tea party, outdid herself this past week, comparing America’s tax burden to the Holocaust.

That’s right. The Minnesota Republican congresswoman says the “loss of economic liberty” that Americans face is comparable to the killing of millions of European Jews by the Nazis during World War II.

“We are seeing eclipsed in front of our a eyes a similar death and similar taking away,” Bachman told a gathering of the rabid right in Manchester, New Hampshire. “It is this disenfranchisement that I think we have to answer to.”

Bachmann also compared the nation’s fiscal problems to the film, “Thelma and Louise,” a popular movie 1991 movie about two women on a killing and robbery spree in the Southwest.   The United States, she said, is “going over a cliff right now.”

In the movie, Susan Sarandon’s character drives her Thunderbird convertible off a cliff so she and the charater played by Geena Davis, can avoid capture for their crimes.

Bachmann said the nation is suffering from “fantasy economics.”

“All of the problems we’re facing with debt are man made problems,” she said. “We created them. It’s called fantasy economics. Fantasy economics only works in a fantasy world.”

Bachmann aimed her criticism at the Obama administration but forgot to mention that the country’s current recession began during the administration of George W. Bush.

    Sadly, Bachmann is the voice of the Republican Party. Anyone who has travelled around the USA since the GOP turned Christian can see this new element of ignorance that bloomed under the influence of the churches and internet combined. After WW2, this movement started and was driven by the Birch Society in conjunction with the fight against Communism.

    This new movement can destroy American values faster than another 9/11. The American people feel as if the government has forsaken them and they will turn to their churches for comfort. To the religious right, Bachmann is smart, politically savvy and ready to make the changes that they want.

    Abortions will be banned as an act of terrorism with murder charges issues on the women. Gays will be forced back into the shadows of the closet to be treated like lepers. Birth control will be controlled by the federal government and I don’t see a counter-movement growing in America.

    Unless an active balance is made to remove this dangerous miovement, we all will lose our freedoms and choices. Look at Europe during the 17th century and be warned. Look to the Vatican to nail sainthood on Pope Paul to show the rest of the world that they have the power and the only power to save the human race.

    It is possible that the American people want prohibitions from the Constitution to force their entire families into submission to the state.
