I recntly posted a graphic on FaceBook of a quote by Michele Bachmann from Fox news Aug 1st 2013.

The quote attributed to her said;

"If every American owned a gun, we could shut down every police dept in America and save the US taxpayers $1.23 trillion a year in needless law enforcement. It's like we wouldn't need police."
Michele Bachmann Fox News, Aug, 1 2013




One of my friends challenged the veracity of this quote, I have searched youtube, fox news, google etc, and I cannot find anything showing her making this statement.

Does anyone here at DU know where I can find a vid clip of batshit crazy Michele Bachmann making this statement?
I would appreciate a little help here, thanks in advance!

1. Wow, not surprising.

 

I recall her saying something along the lines of "Slavery was good for black folk"

2. If you can't find a citation, then it probably never happended.

Not that she wouldn't have said such a thing.

17. Yes, but Bachman doesn't realize she should be hiding everything she says.

She happily flaunts her stupidity.

5. That's why I don't post the graphics w/ quotes until I confirm them -

- you'd be amazed at how many of them I've never been able to find a trace of or they've been taken totally out of context.

13. It was easy to believe since it was attributed to the idiot republican Bachmann.

11. That's the problem isn't it?

You can come up with something really stupid and say she said it and people will believe you. I wonder if she understands that?

14. I googled the quote and got: "1 result (0.50 seconds)"

The one result of course being this thread.
