The GOP is preparing to produce a presidential candidate in Michele Bachmann who has just managed to elevate herself past the duncery levels of Sarah Palin. If Republicans do not disassociate themselves from this lunatic, they would have proved themselves as racist as we assumed they were.
The latest issue Bachmann has trumped all her other stupidity with is comparing the lives of young black children in slavery to those living under Obama’s presidency. I would say she was retarded, but I wouldn’t want to chance someone lumping her in with those who are mentally handicapped. She gave a clear exhibition of her lack of knowledge of anything black or having to do with slavery by bringing this dumbfounded comparisoin up with the anti-gay marriage pledge she was first to sign, according to Mediaite.
Her claim in her “Marriage Vow” bunk was that children born into slavery were more likely to be born into a nuclear family overthose “born after the election of the USA’s first African American President.” Read for yourself how she wrote it into the pledge:
Slavery had a disastrous impact on African-American families, yet sadly a child born into slavery in 1860 was more likely to be raised by his mother and father in a two-parent household than was an African-American baby born after the election of the USA‟s first African-American President.3
LBJ‟ 1965 War on Poverty was triggered in part by the famous “Moynihan Report” finding that the black out-of-wedlock birthrate had hit 26%; today, the white rate exceeds that, the overall rate is 41%, and over 70% of African-American babies are born to single parents4 – a prime sociological indicator for poverty, pathology and prison regardless of race or ethnicity. 5
She calls herself “The Family Leader.” Wow. Where is Pat Sajak when you need him because this chick needs to buy a clue. If black children were born into such stability and prosperity we wouldn’t have anything to complain about now. Why would she try to place the instability of the black community on our first black President and breathe slavery into the same sentence? All of the white Presidents of these United States are THE culprit behind the cultural destabilization of America, especially the 15 Presidents that condoned slavery. She is clearly not only stupid, but delusional and dangerous.
