WASHINGTON, DC – Rep. Michele Bachmann called for citizens to be “armed and dangerous” over one of President Obama’s proposals, and she has stepped up to the plate.
Bachmann is a Republican Representative for Minnesota, who has already found herself in hot water numerous times. Bachmann has stated that gays and lesbians suffer from “sexual dysfunction” and believes the gay community targets children. During the 2008 presidential election, Bachmann said she had concerns that nominee Barack Obama had anti-American views, and that there were anti-American members of Congress that should be investigated.
But Rep. Bachmann made her most alarming statement just a few days ago. When asked on a radio show about President Barack Obama’s cap-and-trade proposal to reduce carbon emissions, Bachmann exclaimed:
“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.”
Rep. Bachmann has made good on her word and showed up outside the White House this morning, shotgun in hand, ready to start a revolution. To a press conference of three, Bachmann stated, “I have called upon thousands of loyal Americans to march here this morning, with whatever weapons they have on hand: butter knives, slingshots, silly string, water balloons… Anything that’s going to let the Washington Elite know that we are serious!”
By 10am, no other citizens had shown, so Bachmann decided to go it alone. She made it halfway over the gate before getting stuck. Security guards stood by for 15 minutes and watched her struggle before finally helping her down. They quietly confiscated her GI Joe toy rifle and let her go.
Rush Limbaugh pledged that he would help Bachmann dig a tunnel to the White House; however, he pledged this on his nationally syndicated radio show, somewhat ruining the element of surprise.
