The batshit crazy bitch just won't go away. Like that nagging pain from a bad case of hemorrhoids, this pain in America's ass just won't quit. She's at it again with her lies and hatred, this time about AmeriCorps. Now Bachmann is saying that the youth of America are going to be forced into "re-education camps" run by AmeriCorps, to "re-educate" them for government service. Nothing could be farther from the truth....well, except everything else she has said about President Obama and the Democrats in Congress.

From Alter Net:

Wow! Michele Bachmann Out-Crazies Herself

More crazy talk from the performance artist known as Michele Bachmann.

I didn't think it was physically possible, but over the weekend, the performance artist known as Michele Bachmann out-crazied herself.

I believe that there is a very strong chance that we will see that young people will be put into mandatory service. And the real concerns is that there are provisions for what I would call re-education camps for young people, where young people have to go and get trained in a philosophy that the government puts forward and then they have to go to work in some of these politically correct forums.

Bachmann is referring to the Serve America Act, which expands the AmeriCorps program and is co-sponsored by the closet Stalinist, Orrin Hatch.

You really have to listen to the whole segment. Bachmann ominously announces she's "watching our freedoms slip out the door," warns that "President Obama wants to cede American sovereignty to trans-national global authorities," and once again calls for everyone to be "armed with knowledge so that they can be dangerous to the views of the Left."

But the takeaway is that we have a sitting Congresswoman telling people that the government is going to brainwash their kids in modern-day gulags.

There's going to be a lot more Pittsburghs if this kind of talk continues, I'm afraid.

Here's some more from Truthdig:

Bachmann Alarmed About ‘Re-Education Camps’ for America’s Kids

Rep. Michele Bachmann is sounding the alarm to radio-show host/wingnut Sue Jeffers about the scary government-controlled future that will surely result if Barack Obama has his way with us—starting with “mandatory” re-education camps for American children. And don’t even get her started on SCHIP.

There's audio for the on air interview with asshat wingnut Sue Jeffers at the link above. It's well worth the listen, you get a much better idea of just how batshit crazy this bitch is.

Here's a couple more links for you to check out. The first on is to the AmeriCorps website. When you get there click on the link "For Individuals", then go to the side bar and click the "What is Americorps?" link. This will give you an explanation of what Americorps is all about, the truth not Bachmann's warped lie.

The other link is to a blog by someone in Bachmann's district. Dump Michele Bachmann has stuff about what she hasn't done for her district and why they need to get rid of her.

UPDATE: My buddy Jacob at Contextual Criticism has a post up about this.
Here's the link to it, Michele Bachmann - Ha, ha, ha.

Have fun with 'em kids.

The woman is sick and needs to GO!!! Did you read Pappys rant, the one I told Nancy about?? These people are dilusional and I'm afraid of what their next move is! They say the country should fear Obama, I say we should fear THEM!!!

Sue - Yes she has to go, and there are people in Minnesota working on that.

I went and checked out that site, but didn't stay long. I try not to read anymore of their propaganda then I have to.

Nancy said...

Eddie - great post! It inspired me over at my blog. When I read about Ms. Bachmann's crazy thought about re-educating America's children, I immediately thought of the movie "Jesus Camp." I'm sure she would rather America's children be re-educated by complete nutjobs.

Grandpa Eddie said...

Nancy - yes, I'm sure she believes that it is much better to be brainwashed by a bunch of batshit crazy fanatical religious head-cases.
That way all the children will follow her blindly.

Grandpa Eddie said...

Shea - I think that would be nice.....but.....I don't think the Rethuglicans are THAT stupid....of course, I've been wrong before.
