Over the weekend Rep. Michelle Bachmann shared her understanding of American history with Iowans for Tax Relief (more tax relief?!?):
“How unique in all of the world, that one nation that was the resting point from people groups all across the world. It didn’t matter the color of their skin, it didn’t matter their language, it didn’t matter their economic status. It didn’t matter whether they descended from nobility or whether they have a higher class or a lower class. It made no difference! Once you got here, we were all the same! Isn’t that remarkable? It is absolutely remarkable!”…Rep. Michelle Bachmann, Tea Party Leader
“THATS NEWS TO ALL OF US!”
“We also know that the very founders that wrote those documents worked tirelessly until slavery was no more in the United States.” …Michelle Bachmann
Yesterday she invited Justice Antonin Scalia to a special Tea Party sponsored instructional seminar to inform them about the Constitution.
Next time perhaps she should invite a historian.
Might I suggest Henry Louis Gates or Cornel West?
