WTF???  They're CHILDREN!  Not murderers and rapists, CHILDREN!

WTF is wrong with these people?

"Don't scapegoat the American people," Bachmann countered. "Van, don't scapegoat the American people right now who are losing jobs."

What does that even mean??

I think she believes the van picked up the children and brought them here on its own.

Fits with her MO.

from their perspective, its perfectly logical and even acceptable to blame innocents for horrible crimes...you do what you have to do in order to win.  its all about the winning.

Michelle Bachman said something stupid.

Must be a day ending in "y".
 
2014-07-16 08:34:02 AM  
Why don't we just make a trade - we'll take these kids, and in return, send a roughly equivalent number of hateful racist assholes to Central America, or the bottom of the sea, or into outer space, doesn't really matter.

They're INVADERS! It's an INVASION! We're being INVADED! They are a threat to our SOVEREIGNTY!

Poor Marcus, I bet he lies awake at night, face-down in his pillow in a quivering sweat by the very IDEA of brown-skinned young men breaking into his room and forcing him to...DO things. Especially ones who might look like Gerardo in that video Marcus' DVD player burned a hole in, or Ricky Martin looked in that Menudo poster Marcus keeps under the mattress in the spare, spare, SPARE ROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM

We've heard this from despicable members of Fark already.
 
2014-07-16 01:11:15 PM  
"We should stand with those children, but we should not scapegoat every one of these kids for that despicable crime," he said. "You know better as a congressperson than to lay at the feet of these children the acts of a despicable criminal."

A reasonable person would think that a congresswoman would know better than that.  However ...

"Don't scapegoat the American people," Bachmann countered. "Van, don't scapegoat the American people right now who are losing jobs."

It's sadly obvious that Bachmann doesn't know the meaning of "scapegoat.

So you are saying that children are incapable of murder and rape?

What fantasy world do you live in?... and where these kids are coming from, murder and rape are a daily occurrence and the norm.

The thing I am worried about is the 'camps' turning into a image of "Lord of the Flies"... you KNOW its going to happen.

Not what he said at all, but you go on with that binary brain..
 
2014-07-16 01:14:37 PM  
And so the very evil children
Took the dog out to play in the park
Then they took him home
And refused to set him on fire

They were evil, evil, evil children
And they refused to do as they were told
They would say, "Why should we leave
The elderly woman in the expressway?
No way, we're not doing it"

Then they would go downstairs
And prepare the Molotov cocktails
Knowing full well that when they were finished
There was no way in hell
They were going to blow up the neighbor's barn

They were evil, evil, evil children
All their lives people expected them to do bad
They almost let them do it forever

/meh, first thing i thought of
 
2014-07-16 01:14:49 PM  
The second you see Michele Bachmann in the headline, you know that you can write just about anything in quotes and no one would question the legitimacy of what was said.  I mean, would it honestly surprise anyone if you saw in the headline Michele Bachmann: "I'm eating this corndog to protest the oppression of Christians against the Obama administration.  Marcus is pooping for the same reason."

there is a certain segment of the population that won't be happy until there is an incident in which the US national guard guns down hundreds of "illegal invaders" at the border

Shes not talking about about innocent Travon Martins. Shes talking about MMA wannabee fighter Travon Martins.

Were you worried the GOP wasn't going to say enough stupid crap between now and November?  Relax, they got it covered.  Stupid shiat before an election is their raison d'etre.
 
2014-07-16 01:19:19 PM  
Pay attention. This is how the GOP reacts to a genuine humanitarian crisis.

Yup.

At least Louie Gohmert had the decency to keep his calling the children invaders separate from calling immigrants rapists. He has plausable deniability he meant the kids in his case.
 
2014-07-16 01:23:04 PM  
Anything, and I do mean anything, Michelle Bachmann says can be safely disregarded.

It's sadly obvious that Bachmann doesn't know the meaning of "scapegoat.

I wonder if she knows at least how to pronounce it.

How in hell is Marcus going to manage sneaking out late at night in order to go to Roscoe's Manne-Hole Bar & Grill with Michele Bachmann back in town on a permanent basis, especially on "Rotisserie Chicken Floor Show" contest night?
 
2014-07-16 01:26:16 PM  
How does someone's heart get filled with this much hate?

How does someone's mind become this filled with this much derp?

How does someone sink this low, and still believe that she is a human being?
 
2014-07-16 01:26:33 PM  
The Bachmanns didn't adopt children, they were temporary foster parents most often from the spring planting through the fall harvest seasons. That's how you run an efficient farm without Mexican labor.

Weaver95: from their perspective, its perfectly logical and even acceptable to blame innocents for horrible crimes...you do what you have to do in order to win. its all about the winning.


And this is the reason I still believe that one batshiat person is going to take it upon themselves to 'rid our nation of this menace' and start shooting up the buses or blowing them up.

With the sheer amount of batshiat comments (like the most recent from Bachmann), sadly, I think it's only a matter of time.  And that scares the hell out of me.

Technically those aren't mutually exclusive, not in a society that sets the age of majority at 18.  Anyone of any age can be a murderer, and anyone over the age of puberty can in theory be a rapist.

Albeit... yeah, I think most of us have given up on trying to work out what the hell is wrong with Bachmann.  Even those of us that are pretty sure there's some underlying logic under the GOP in general that's not as psychopathic as they seem superficially can't really explain the vortexes of stupid and crazy that seem to cross into literal crazy like Bachmann, Palin, Cruz, etc.

Some people are just terrible, I guess.

// I mean... the rest of the GOP is basically rolling with "we're sympathetic and willing to offer asylum while we discuss the larger issue", so she's even an outlier in crazyland.  Even beyond being a dick move on an individual level, this is a bad position to take politically.
 
2014-07-16 01:27:30 PM  
I am glad she's leaving.

<CSB> My neighbor is running for her seat.  GOP, but not crazy.  But, she'll need to court the crazy, which is sad. </CSB>

The sad part is (well, one of the sad parts) the people who voted for this insufferable c-word agree with her point of view... and it's not an insignificant number of people. Even people who ordinarily care for the welfare of children in general, I think, listen to this woman and think "yeah! Stick it to those invading, rapist brown people, Michelle! You are doing God's work."

I hate people sometimes.
