Bachmann VS. ISIS
Bachmann has been publicly critical of not only ISIL, but also Islam, calling on President Barack Obama to declare war on the religion during a speech at the conservative Value Voters Summit at the end of September.
“It’s because we have jihadists who subscribe to a radical ideology that believes dying in the name of Islam gets them to heaven,” Bachmann said. “And what we need to do is to defeat this Islamic jihad. Sadly, President Obama has the wrong prescription. He even fails to acknowledge their motivations for bringing about jihad. Yes, Mr. President, it is about Islam.”
Further, she said, “And I believe if you have an evil of an order of this magnitude, you take it seriously,” Bachmann said. “You declare war on it, you don’t dance around it. Just like the Islamic State has declared war on the United States of America.”
A spokesman for Bachmann disputed the characterization of her speech. “Politico’s blatant mischaracterization of the congresswoman’s speech at the Values Voters Summit hits a new low. It is abundantly clear to anybody who actually bothered to watch her speech that she was referring to declaring war on the Islamic State,” said Dan Kotman, the Bachmann spokesman.
She has also introduced legislation that would renounce Americans’ citizenship if they join ISIL. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) has introduced similar legislation in the Senate.
Congress opted in September against taking up legislation that would deal with the ISIL threat in Iraq and Syria.
Bachmann told Newsmax in September that she was told by FBI officials that Americans involved with ISIL would be allowed to return to the United States.
“We need to ‘get a brain in the United States and wake up,’” Bachmann told Newsmax of the policy of requiring U.S. citizens only to be put on a watch list and undergo additional screening. “Because the Islamic State has been very clear about their intention. That’s why they call themselves the Islamic State. They see that the global caliphate literally goes around the world, including the United States.”

Oh that’s rich! So ISIS is afraid of Mrs.Bachmann? What a shame that this congresswoman gets more attention from ISIL-AQ-IS-CIA then our own P.O.T.U.S. Hmmm, or this is a stunt to make her look strong for a GOP candidacy? She tried once. Romney quit over less threats on his life. I don’t think there is one potential candidate who instills any fear into ISIL-AQ-IS-CIA. So many lies from these elk.
Here’s what she really said:
(*note this is Value Voters Summit, a FRC event– ISIS/ISIL is watching the Christian Right Political groups?!)
Here’s Huffington Post and their take, including the above video that ISIL used as propaganda and threat towards Bachmann.
**I found the “true” ISIL video of Michele Bachman that Huffington didn’t quite use the whole thing… I don’t speak/read Arabic or whatever language this is scrolling. If anyone of you know how to translate add it in the comments.
Michele is correct, “This is spiritual Warfare…” (and it would do her good to find out exactly who the Yazidis are and if they are Christian. Not that I’m for what ISIS is doing to them, but they are clearly NOT Christian brothers and sisters. I’ve wrote about them in other posts)
In the same vain I would stress that our United States Government LIES so much that we the people even struggle to believe that ISIS/ISIL is truly a threat against the US. Why? Because a vast majority of thinking people believe and understand that ISIS/ISIL is a US government concoction. I believe at least that this so called group was conceptualized by the military complex, or whomever is Obama’s true boss, because frankly he’s too inept to be so brilliantly evil. Thus, when we hear of this “enemy” that also gets support from McCain and Kerry when they were used to fight Assad mere months ago, then they are killing in droves and being ALLOWED to take over Iraq and Syria; I find it hard to believe that ISIS/ISIL is really after Michele Bachmann.
Would ISIS/ISIL dare to come onto our shores and attempt any act of terror like they seem to have license to do in the middle east?
I’m inclined to believe that gun owning Americans would fight back. Obama failed to complete his mission to take our 2nd Amendment right, hence there would most definitely be a group of people who would fight back against ISIS(ISIL, et. al).
Is Bachmann truly a threat? She’s not the President, she doesn’t have the majority power in the congress or among the house of the Senate. Our Government is inept. How many others have stated greater inflammatory remarks against ISIS/ISIL? Should we believe this story?
There is a spiritual war going on, there seems to be an objective to get the Christians here in America to believe that “we” are under attack, that the “enemy” is coming for “us,” and we will be persecuted, killed, and decapitated like those in the Middle East. However, this is not entirely false, it’s true that this is on its way, but is this particular group ISIS/ISIL (Al Qaeda), the source of the coming persecution? It’s not necessarily an organic group of terrorists. What is going on is a huge psy-op trap and we have to walk circumspectly and make sure that what we are seeing and witnessing is “real.” Banners and sound effects telling us, “This is Real,” doesn’t make it so. We have to be sure. When our own government lies about everything, it lends us to believe nothing, then when it is real…we may neglect to sound the alarm. Let us be vigilant then, let us put on our whole Armor of God, and be ready.
