Where the fuck is the Secret Service? Why is it that a college kid could get visited by the Secret Service for wearing an anti-Bush T-shirt, but a member of the U.S. House of Representative can exhort her mouth-breathing minions to take up arms against the Obama Administration — and that’s OK?
Controversial Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) said this weekend that she wants residents of her state “armed and dangerous” over President Barack Obama’s plan to reduce global warming “because we need to fight back.”
Asked about the White House-backed cap-and-trade proposal to reduce carbon emissions, Bachmann told WWTC 1280 AM, “I want people in Minnesota armed and dangerous on this issue of the energy tax because we need to fight back. Thomas Jefferson told us ‘having a revolution every now and then is a good thing,’ and the people — we the people — are going to have to fight back hard if we’re not going to lose our country. And I think this has the potential of changing the dynamic of freedom forever in the United States.”
Bachmann also told her constituents she was “a foreign correspondent on enemy lines,” sending Minnesotans warnings through her blog, Facebook, Twitter, and Myspace. “I try to let everyone back here in Minnesota know exactly the nefarious activities that are taking place in Washington.”
Where was Michelle Bachman while George W. Bush really WAS spitting on the Constitution for eight years? Why wasn’t she calling for armed revolution then? Or is it OK to violate the Constitution too if you’re a Republican?
