Michelle Bachmann Insists American Jews “Sold Out” Israel by Voting for Obama
This piece blows me away, because there used to be a time when American Jews who supported Zionism were considered un-American by the Bachmanns of yesteryear. But now they’re un-American for not supporting Israel.
Seems to me that by RWNJ standards, American Jews just can’t win.
Also included, end times gibberish for the FRC audience!
Michele Bachmann: American Jews “sold out Israel” by supporting Obama
by Elias Isquith
Barring something truly world-historic, catastrophic and unforeseen happening, 2014 will be Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann’s last year as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives. And it would appear she intends to spend her last months on the job the same way she spent the previous 11 years — as the voice of conservatism’s wild and fear-stricken id.
Speaking with the far-right Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins on Monday, Bachmann continued strengthening her ironclad and unshakable relationship with the U.S. Jewish community by accusing American Jews of having “sold out Israel” by voting for President Obama in 2008 and 2012.
“The Jewish community gave him their votes, their support, their financial support,” Bachmann told Perkins, “and as recently as last week, 48 Jewish donors who are big contributors to the president wrote a letter to the Democrat [sic] senators in the U.S. Senate to tell them to not advance sanctions against Iran.”
“This is clearly against Israel’s best interest,” Bachmann continued. “What has been shocking has been seeing and observing Jewish organizations who it appears have made it their priority to support the political priority and the political ambitions of the president over the best interests of Israel.”
“They sold out Israel,” she concluded.
