Michele Bachmann Tells Iowa Youth to Give Lives to Jesus: VIDEO


UPDATE: Chris Moody at The Ticket posts a correction to the 'On Knees for Jesus' posting noting that Bachmann clearly says "Who likes wet people?" not "Who likes white people?"

Unedited video posted, AFTER THE JUMP...


Blog On Knees for Jesus has posted some rather unfortunate video of 2012 presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann asking a Christian Iowa crowd, "Who likes white people?"


A poster at Political Hotwire writes: "Apparently, the warm-up band for Bachmann was called the 'White People Soul Band'...'it is obvious to me that whan she asked 'Who likes white people?', she meant the band, but even from the reaction of the audience, you can hear a not so subtle undertone. Either way, it is extremely awkward and probably not the smartest thing to do when you know your opponent in the GE will be a black man."

But aside from that gaffe, the rest of the video is noteworthy for its feverish preaching.

"God is not partial," Bachmann later says, at the beginning of a sermon urging young people to pray. "That's my message for all of the young people here tonight. He is powerful...give your life over to him now while there is yet time. Jesus Christ. Trust him, and all his ways."

  1. Michele, I trust Jesus already. However some of his fan clubs give me cause for grave concern.

  3. I dislike MB as much as anyone, but this is rediculous. It's an edited clip, plus she says "wet" not "white" people.

    Here's what she said: "Who likes wet people? Yeah that right because we have the God of the winds and the rains don't we."

    Whoever edited this clip typed out the word "white" so you'll think she's saying "white" instead of "wet", and then cut out the next sentence Bachmann said - "Yeah that right because we have the God of the winds and the rains don't we"

  4. "I had never heard of Jesus Christ referred to as the "creator of the universe"

    Actually, the Bible says Jesus, Divine in every way, created the universe, and Christianity has held so from the start. Her theology is consistent with historic, mainstream Christianity and the Bible.

    "15 The Son [Jesus] is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. 17 He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. 19 For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, 20 and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross."---Colossians 1: 15-20

  5. Wow, Javier. I really wasn't expecting a Bible lesson on Towleroad. The scripture you cite just reminds me why I stopped being a Christian. It is very dense and none of it makes any sense to me.

  6. Michele Bachmann and her husband are both very far out. Not good for the U.S. She is running on her own “gay agenda” platform. We are closing schools, laying people off. Families are being foreclosed on and being put out in the streets. And all this Republican running for President and her husband can do is talk about is “praying away the gay”. It is a good money maker for her, but we have bigger things to do, and I am hopping God has too. If you or your church has the gay agenda on your mind, all the time you may need to set down and talk with someone. We need to start looking at what is best for the country. Not our own religion’s views, that blow in the wind.

  7. what serious presidential candidate would follow a a band with such a name? Who booked this act? As soon as MB advisors knew the name of the band they should have backed out.

    These events only leave me to believe that she has no serious intention of being a real presidential contender. She's pulling a Palin.

  8. Eddie, politics isn't a Reese's cup. You, Michele and Marcus keep your religion out of government.
