Michele Bachmann: Hurricane Irene A Message from God

Michele Bachmann Says Hurricane Irene Should Be Viewed as Message from God

On the campaign trail, Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann is coming under criticism for saying Hurricane Irene should be viewed as a message from God. She made the comment on Sunday at a campaign event in Florida.

Michele Bachmann, Republican presidential candidate: “And I don’t know how much God has to do to get the attention of the politicians. We’ve had an earthquake. We’ve had a hurricane. He said, ‘Are you going to start listening to me here?’ Listen to the American people, because the American people are roaring right now, because they know what needs to be done. They know the government is on a morbid obesity diet. It’s got to rein in the spending. This is not a difficult problem to solve.”

On Monday, Bachmann attempted to back away from her comment. A campaign spokesperson said Bachmann made the comment in jest.

No. She wasn’t joking. It is just how she sees the world. It does play into the stereotype that’s out there. Fear mongering is one technique in mind control. It is an effective tool. The idea is to terrify and terrorize the audience during every waking moment. This of course raises the question: why terrorize your own audience? Because it is the fastest way to bypasses the rational brain. In other words, when people are afraid, they don’t think rationally. And when they can’t think rationally, they’ll believe anything.
