Potty-mouthed Bachmann launches another ‘Obama’s anti-American’ attack

She’s a deranged cus, isn’t she? I don’t know who earns more Pinocchios, but Michele Bachmann or Robin Hayes. I experience maximum schadenfreude with Bachmann, since the homophobic Congresswoman has been on the LGBT community’s radar for years.

On Hugh Hewitt’s radio show yesterday, Bachmann declared that “Barack Obama’s views are against America”:

BACHMANN: All I did on Chris Matthews is I questioned Chris Matthews and said, “look, if John McCain had friends like Jeremiah Wright and Bill Ayers and Father Pfleger, you’d be all over him Chris, but you’ve laid off of Barack Obama.” And so, he was using the word “Anti-American” and I told Chris, what I question are Barack Obama’s views. Because Barack Obama’s views are against America. They won’t be good for our country.

On Mike Gallagher’s radio show this morning, Bachmann attacked Obama’s policy proposals, asking rhetorically, “Are they for America or will they be against traditional American ideals and values?”:

BACHMANN: And they can’t take it because the point is what are Barack Obama’s policies? Are they for America or will they be against traditional American ideals and values? And I’ll tell you what. Punishing tax rates, redistribution of wealth, socialized medicine, inputing censorship in the form of the un-Fairness Doctrine and taking away the secret ballot from the worker has nothing to do with traditional American values. That’s why your listeners need to know. Otherwise the United States may be literally changed forever.

When Gallagher asked, “How is it not reasonable to wonder if that’s anti-American?,” Bachmann did not disagree with him.

Think Progress has the audio and full transcript of this self-immolating looney-tune.

Eva at Dump Michele Bachmann reports that the Congresscritter has sent out an emergency fundraising letter now that the GOP has pulled the plug on advertising. A snippet is below the fold.
She isn’t sorry, she isn’t telling the truth. She said what she said on Hardball and she’s paying the price. Oh, so sorry…

Dear Friend:

Nazi. Psychopath. Deranged. Mentally ill. Disgusting human being. Bitch.

I apologize for the rude language. But, these are just a few of the names that my staff and volunteers have been called over the past 24 hours simply because they work for me.

Ever since my appearance on MSNBC’s Hardball on Friday night, my office has received calls from all across the nation – California, Illinois, Georgia, Texas, Oregon, Vermont, and elsewhere. Some of the calls have been respectfully disagreeing with my statements on the show. Most, unfortunately, are full of hate and anger and language like that above – and worse.

And, they’re putting their money where their mouths are.

My opponent has told the media that he raised more than half a million dollars in the 24 hours following the show.

All this because I dared to say that the formative relationships that Barack Obama had are relevant to figuring out what kinds of policies he might bring to the White House. Because I said that Barack Obama’s close relationships with people like Bill Ayers and Jeremiah Wright and others who hold far-out-of-the-mainstream views might have had some influence on the policy positions that Barack Obama holds.

From there Chris Matthews did what Chris Matthews is paid big bucks to do: Twist my words and set them up for full-fledged distortion when his next guest came on. And, when the liberal blogs got hold of little clips of my appearance, the spin machine really kicked into overdrive.

I never said that all liberals are anti-American. I never asked for a House Unamerican Activities Committee witch hunt. But, that’s what the spin machine is saying. And, that’s what these callers believe.

Surf over and read the rest.
