Michelle Bachmann no longer funny

In a November 13, 2009 video message to the “Christian rock” band-cum-ministry You Can Run But You Can’t Hide, US Rep. Michelle Bachmann (R-MN) told the band,

It a tough job that you do, but someone has to do it. I thank God that he has given you the strength and the resolve to fight for our timeless values

The “timeless values” frontman Bradlee Dean fights for are violent hatred, dogmatism, intellectual laziness, and hysteria.  In one talk radio interview, Dean said the following things about LGBTple:

“Muslims are calling for the executions of homosexuals in America…This just shows you they themselves are upholding the laws that are even in the Bible of the Judeo-Christian God, but they seem to be more moral than even the American Christians do, because these people are livid about enforcing their laws. They know homosexuality is an abomination.”

“If America won’t enforce the laws, God will raise up a foreign enemy to do just that,” Dean said later. “That is what you are seeing in America.”

“The bottom line is this… they [homosexuals] play the victim when they are, in fact, the predator. On average, they molest 117 people before they’re found out. How many kids have been destroyed, how many adults have been destroyed because of crimes against nature?”

Andy Birkman at the Minnesota Independent has been covering the band and its ties to the GOP for some time.  Read his many stories here. The band was given a booth at the 2009 state Republican Convention. Dean has also called for “war” against liberal “criminals,” denies a secular foundation for American law., and described Obama’s appointee to the Dept. of Education Kevn Jennings as a “blatant homosexual.”  

Here’s a petition demanding Bachmann sever all ties with You Can Run But You Can’t Hide. And here is the passage from De Rerum Natura appropriate for the occassion:

 Such are the crimes to which Religion leads.
And there shall come the time when even thou,
Forced by the soothsayer’s terror-tales, shalt seek
To break from us.
