Michele Bachmann claims Jewish Democrats "sold out Israel"
Michele Bachmann is out with her latest lunacy, and this time it's borderline antisemitic.
In an interview with Family Research Council Head Tony Perkins on Monday, Bachmann claimed that Jewish Democrats "sold out Israel" by supporting Obama.
She also said that the president's policies will result in "destroying and reducing to rubble Israel" and that this will ultimately usher in the biblical end times.
"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," Bachmann said. "They sold out Israel."
In her rant, she specifically calls out Jewish donors who asked Obama not to impose sanctions on Iran.
"The Jewish community gave him their votes, their support, their financial support, and as recently as last week, 48 Jewish donors who are big contributors to the president wrote a letter to the Democrat senators in the U.S. Senate to tell them to not advance sanctions against Iran," Bachmann said. "This is clearly against Israel's best interest."
Yes, Bachmann is still crazy. Luckily, she won't be in office much longer.
