(AllHipHop News) In a new level of bipartisan passing the buck, former Tea Party Republican, and failed 2012 Republican Presidential Nominee hopeful Michele Bachmann, who represented Minnesota’s 6th congressional district in the United States House of Representatives from 2007 until 2015, has invoked God’s wrath and President Barack Obama as the culprit and instigator when it comes to the current egregious state of global terrorism and terrorist attacks around the globe.
In an article that Bachmann wrote today for WorldNetDaily, the former representative called the 44th President of the United States “little big man” and proclaimed, “we aren’t all the same. We don’t believe the same things, nor do we hold to the same values,” as she extrapolated from current world events that God is using recent terrorism in Brussels, Paris and elsewhere as a doomsday method of “humiliating” Obama for his overall “foolishness” in the face of what her ideal Republican party leadership would do with regards to international security, international relations and general diplomacy for America.
Religion and politics are seldom good bedfellows – as suggested by our nation’s staunch separation of Church and State. However, to briefly play by Ms. Bachmann’s rules in critiquing our current president, perhaps she would do well to be more inclusive of everything that she can borrow from what she liberally cites as ” Western Christian” values to further bolster her decidedly religious attack of “our feckless U.S. President”. To that end, she has conveniently ignored the theology behind Ephesians 4:29: “Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.” Considering that Ms. Bachmann would seem eager to posit herself as a pious political watchdog, this biblical entreaty to not say anything if you have nothing good to say or good to contribute to a situation, might be the more prudent ticket for a failed 2012 Republican Presidential hopeful who is for all practical matters completely out of the current political game.
