The Democrats’ War On Everyone

0 Shares
Members of Congress and WWII Veterans Break Down Barriers at the WWII Memorial in Washington, D.C.

Earlier this week, Representative Michele Bachmann (R-Every Democrat’s Nightmare) stepped in a puddle of controversy when she linked President Barack Obama to the really nasty parts of the Revelation of Saint John the Divine. Bachmann said: “[T]he United States is willingly, knowingly, intentionally sending arms to terrorists… what this says to me… we are in God’s end times history.”

I’m willing to admit that kind of rhetoric carries a lot of weight. And I’ll further admit that I don’t share Bachmann’s apocalyptic world view. Among other things, the end times require some seriously heavyweight bad guys, and I have yet to see them appear. I’m not suggesting the world doesn’t have its share of creeps, and al-Qaida certainly qualifies. But for all the bloodshed and pain they’ve inflicted, al-Qaida terrorists live like cockroaches, constantly scurrying from the light to stay alive. I honestly don’t believe Armageddon can be engineered by guys who dream of one day moving out of that drafty cave in Waziristan and into a suicide vest. Even if they could force the world over the brink of destruction, their methods preclude them from enjoying the fruits of their labor.

Nonetheless, Bachmann’s pronouncement — which included the entirely accurate part about Obama’s arming terrorists — touched off a whole new round of Democratic hysteria. Among those who lambasted Bachmann was a friend of mine who happens to be a Democrat. This pal, whom I’ll call Darrow in reference to his career as a criminal defense attorney, is also a very nice fellow who plays a decent game of golf and knows a good glass of scotch when he drinks one, the truest test of a man’s character. When Bachmann fired off her catastrophic caveat, Darrow took her to task. A few of his fellow liberals piled on. And until I mentioned it, I doubt anyone realized that the whole conversation was essentially just a remix of the same songs Democrats sang about Sarah Palin, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer or any other woman who steps outside the role assigned to them by liberal men.

After all, Bachmann might be putting from the proverbial rough when it comes to apocalyptic predictions, but she’s dead-solid perfect on Obama’s shocking foreign policy ineptitude. And even if you refuse to believe that Obama is funneling weapons to some of the worst people on Earth, Bachmann’s warning is hardly the silliest thing said by someone in government. In fact, compared to a number of Democrats who seem stuck in their own personal auditions for “Liberals Say the Darndest Things,” Bachmann is a veritable sage. At the very least, I’d be willing to stake a pretty sizable claim that Bachmann:

  • Knows the moon is not a planet and that Neil Armstrong never walked on Mars.
  • Is aware that Guam is buoyant enough to withstand the U.S. military without capsizing.
  • Knows there are 50 States, and knows which ones border the Gulf of Mexico.
  • Can tell the difference between Tina Fey and Palin.
  • Recognizes handing weapons to al-Qaida is generally a bad idea.
  • Knows the difference between an actual terrorist and someone who simply believes the Constitution is worth more than a cocktail napkin.
  • Would prefer World War II veterans get the run of their memorial over, say, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and a herd of illegal aliens.

Bachmann hardly lives above reproach. But it strikes me that some folks can’t wait to pounce on Bachmann’s gaffes — or even ones Palin didn’t actually make — but can’t seem to find their righteous outrage when Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, Clinton (pick one), comedian Bill Maher, Secretary of State John Kerry, Representatives Hank Johnson and Sheila Jackson Lee, the “Revs.” Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, Rachel Maddow, Anthony Weiner, Chris Matthews, Michael Moore, etc. choke on their own toe fungus.

I’d call that a “war on women” were it not for the fact that the Democrats seem to be fighting pretty much everyone these days — except for al-Qaida.

    Intelligent conservative women make intelligent comments and the left attacks them as being stupid. Stupid liberal women make ridiculous and stupid comments and the left praises them for their intelligence and incite. I guess it shows that conservatives are better educated than liberals. With liberals, stupidity and a lack of intelligence rules!

      Or the left makes into heroines women like Wendy Davis in Texas who support & promote the murder of innocent life…who fight tooth & nail against the most sensible abortion center regulations & could not care less about them & the Gosnell’s of America & revel & feel triumphant every time a woman gets an abortion…who feel they are freedom fighters on this issue..that’s right to them “Choice” is Freedom…freedom for a mother to kill her baby??? Their consciousness is straight from The Pit of Death & Hell!! May God have mercy on their souls!

    “Progressivism is a mental disorder” appears to be the Fright Wing meme of the moment. Okay, let’s address that issue.

    People with mental disorders said the Earth revolves around the Sun, and not vice versa.
    People with mental disorders gave women the right to vote.
    People with mental disorders freed the slaves.
    People with mental disorders suggested doctors wash their hands between patients.
    People with mental disorders said nine year-olds should not be coal miners.
    People with mental disorders said all children should be educated.
    People with mental disorders said it is wrong for our rivers to catch fire.
    People with mental disorders said workers should have a five=day, forty-hour work week.

    Thank God for mental disorders!

    • B

      It was Rebublicans that freed the slaves!!! 500,000 white men died for that often overlooked TRUTH!!!! This administration has divided this country more by race and is trying to do it economically!!! Have fun with the price/ penalty you are FORCED to pay for healthcare now UNTILL the day you die unless something is done and quick to repeal this horror inflicted upon us at the willing hands of Democrats!!!!

    • B

      Oh and by the way, your an idiot, Louis Pasteur discovered the relationship between germs an disease in 1860, guess u want progressives to take credit for that too! And children have been educated since the beginning of human history, guess progressives want credit for that too!!! Parenting is the most significant responsibility in adult life, so why are more democrats on welfare, and why are 90% of publicized assassins/ killers that the left blames republicans for are registered democrats!!! Hmmm, cause most of you are Godless!!! I apologize for the harshness but its true!!!

      • Alex

        B, you obviously have NO idea what the term “Progressive” means. You seem to think that Progressives are a Twenty-First century phenomenon—-back to school for you, ma’am…

    • J.

      Alex. The “Fright Wing” as you name call like a frightened school yard punk is responsible for the American Revolution, founding the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights, The Civil War against the slave owning southern Democrats, the Emancipation Proclamation, Equal Rights Ammendment, Having “Jim Crow” laws ruled unconstitutional. ending school segregation victory in WW II. Just basically making the U.S. The greatest country in the world. And most of all we have filled cemetaries with “Fright wingers” that died protecting welfare warrior cowards like you. Drink your Kool-aid and cash your government check and always remember. “The government that bought you (welfare check) owns you

People like this are not really people, but SHEEPLE & simply cannot think for themselves.

    • speedle24

      Alex, are you saying that “Progressives” gave us the reality of the earth orbiting the moon, or freed the slaves, or had surgeons wash their hands, or promoted education, or banned children from coal mines, etc? Some of these things were “Reformist” efforts but not “Progressive”, certainly not by today’s definition of “Progressive”. Progressive (read: liberals, collectivists, Statists) are all about big government and the abolition of personal freedoms. Sorry pal, your ilk has no connection to the genetic tree of the people responsible for any of the above.

      Yeah baby, thank God for Conservative Christians!

  • Moshe McCarthy

    Bachmann & Palin have more common sense & gutty balls & leadership skills than 99% of all pols in DC & they are not promoters of perverted homos & transvestites & fake global warming science!!! & they are not part of NWO elites or their feckless sell out enablers!

    BTW, the Bible & many of its meanings & symbolism have been perverted over the centuries. When Jesus said, “I AM with you always, even unto the end of the Age”…He was not referring to the end of the world, but the end of the Age of Pisces, the Zodiac age of which He was the Hierarch, we are now firmly in the Age of Aquarius & Saint Germain is the Hierarch. He is also the Sponsor of the United States of America. SEE: “THE TEACHINGS OF THE ASCENDED MASTERS”…

    Also, the real Israel is America, not the tiny nation in Middle East, that is Judah. America is “EPHRAIM”, the blessing promised to Joseph. SEE: Herbert W. Armstrong’s “AMERICA & BRITAIN IN PROPHECY”, available for free by calling, “Philadelphia Church of God”

    Finally, people do not understand the real function of prophecy. It is a warning to change one’s ways & to bend the knee to God & to the Christ..it is not written in stone & can be mitigated, thus if it is not fulfilled it does not mean that God’s word was wrong!

  • Spongebob

    I think Shes right, and Obama is the antichrist

    • Mole Johnson

      He’s not the antichrist … he’s just a weasel!

  • wavesofgrain

    IMHO, I think Bachman is not far from the truth. Every day I read about more corrupt policies, more corrupt cancers that have taken over our government and government employees. The Public Unions have now implemented a partisan virus in our government, working against the very taxpayers that pay their wages. And it is only going to get worse until we abolish public unions. Our elections are now being stolen, irregularities are not investigated, and even certain members of Congress and Justices have turncoated overnight against their constituents. (“bribes/threats? Check vatican bank) Our Congress is even shrugging off the unconstitutional spying on Americans.

    So, with the brainwashing of America, encouraging of throngs of illegals/immigrants to change our culture and ensure a Democratic Majority, the takeover of our Mainstream Media (The Globalists funded journalist schools, also), the militant Unionization of our Teachers/Professors…who are influencing our children with their Marxist views, The Union IRS…illegally interfering in taxpayers rights………well, I agree with Michelle….that the end is near. Because if/when our country has been taken over with the DemKrats, we will no longer have America. They will install a Diktator/King, and eliminate our sovereignity and freedom. The Global Warming movement (scam created by ObM and Gore) is striving to completely control the world’s energy use…and that will topple civilization as we knew it.

  • Exfg

    Republicans party was founded in 1854 as an abolitionist movement with the Creed that “slavery is a violation of the rights of man” Fredrick Douglas called the Republican Party the party of freedom and progress! Abraham Lincoln was the first republican president and the author of the emancipation proclamation! It was the Republican Party that added the 13-14-15th amendments giving former slaves citizenship, voting rights and due process of law. Democrats were the party of Jim Crow who defended the rights of slave owners. It was a republican that championed the civil rights act of 1957, democrats filibustered the bill. The progressives in the Democratic Party are about one thing, control, things like Welfare, food stamps, Obamacare, are passed of as Social justice, charity. But they are not designed to lift people out of poverty. They are designed by the liberals to keep people dependent on the government so they can be controlled. To keep them in power. Yes, progressives are mentally challenged or they would do some research instead of name calling!

        • Liz

          That’s continues because some Black leaders make a living off the poor uneducated minorities by perpetuating the issue. They couldn’t make money if the uneducated became educated, got off welfare and put the past behind them.

      • Vincent James

        • Smee

          Look up the history of the KKK

          • Vincent James

            Yes they are an ultra conservative group. Before 1930s the Democrats were the conservatives and the Republicans were the liberal party. Thus why Lincoln was a Republican. With FDR and the New Deal in the 1930s there was a constituency swap between parties because they were so divided on the New Deal. From that time forward the Republicans became the conservative party and the Democrats the liberal party. So if you are telling me anything before 1930s conservative was from Democrats, yes that is correct. But lets not put perfume on a pig, whatever party name they hide under the conservatives have always been the problem in this country whether it was the KKK conservatives the FBI hunted like dogs, or the tea party conservatives which America is getting rid of as well.

    • wavesofgrain

      “”Democratic Party are about one thing, control”””
      Yup, that is why they changed their tactics. They found that if they become Santa Claus, dupe the poor and the naive by telling lies about their opponents, they will remain in power forever.

    • Vincent James

      You forgot to mention that before the 1930s the Republicans were the liberal party and the Democrats were the conservative party. Kind of makes sense when you tell the whole story.

    Ben- You’re the best, but the “end times” don’t require any more seriously bad guys than the ones who have been around since Christ ascended back to Heaven 40 days after the resurrection, 2000 years ago. Christ’s return- the Final Day of Judgment doesn’t “require” anything other than God’s will and could be today, tomorrow, another 2000 years from now- whatever!

    • HueyDude

      No doubt. “…the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.” 1 Thess. 5:2. We have been in the last days since the sack of Jerusalem in AD 70, which the Lord prophesied about, the Great Tribulation. Everything that is happening is not necessarily the signs of the end, for we know not when that day will be.

  • AWiley

    She is absolutely right! That is what Benghazi and Syria was all about. He has been arming the Muslim Brotherhood and other terrorist groups with our tax payer money for years. He should be impeached for many other offenses also. There are too many globalist that want to keep him around. Someone has to bring the truth to light and it takes a courageous woman like Michelle Bachmann to do it. More leaders need to show no fear for such a time as this or our country will be given over to a dictatorship. Think of the future generations. As it is, their faith has been dissipated because of Marxist ideas in our schools and have no trust in God or in his principles to live by, which explains the chaos we have today. We need to clean house in our government NOW. And Obama is the most powerful Marxist in the White House. Evil knows no bounds.

  • Michael Shreve

    Picture Obama as the Muslim ANTI-Christ. Still, are things THAT bad. If WE THE PEOPLE don’t take action, THEY WILL BE.

      I find it fascinating only white people were responsible for the slave trade. Blacks fail to mention that in order for the slaves to be sold they first must have been “captured” and sold to the white man by their own kind.

      ODUMBO proudly posed for a photo op at Maison Des Esclaves on Gorée Island off the coast of Senegal as the last spot where slaves were traded knowing full well that blacks were just as responsible for the slave trade as whites.

      I also find it interesting that people only think of the US as being the only place slaves were sold into servitude. Slavery in the British Isles dated from before Roman occupation and continued until 1833 yet no one mentions this fact.
