Oh yeah. She's virulently antigay, too.
I just read an article over at Politicususa that was so WTF!?-inducing, that I put a record on just so I could make it scratch — skr-r-r-reeek!! — after which, I slapped myself, did a double take, rubbed my eyes with closed fists, did a shot of whisky, and then read it again.
That’s how absurd what you’re about to read is.
But first, let me back up.
A couple weeks ago, Michele Bachmann signed a Families Values Are Awesome and Homosexuality Will Kill Your Children pledge, which noted that while slavery was, like, totally the worst, at least little black childrenses had two parents back then.
The “slavery preamble” to the Conservative Nutbag Pledge read as follows:
“Slavery had a disastrous impact on African-American families, yet sadly a child born into slavery in 1860 was more likely to be raised by his mother and father in a two-parent household than was an African-American baby born after the election of the USA?s first African-American President,”
Needless to say, that didn’t go over too well; the odious clause was removed from the pledge, and Bachmann made some silly claim that she hadn’t actually read the slavery preamble (even though it was the first damn clause in the pledge, hence the term “preamble”).
But never mind that. Point is, the conservative nutbags realized that it is absolutely inappropriate for a white person to laud the virtues of black family life under slavery.
It’s much better if you get a black person to do it.
