Unbelievable. Bachman begins her sermon by asking "WHO LIKES WHITE PEOPLE?"

1. WTF? Where was this? It's obviously recent.
"Who likes white people?" Yeah, she really said that.

50. It's a band.
"White People" is the name of the band that was playing just before she came on. Not that her question is sensible. She should have qualified it, "Who likes the band White People?"

56. White People
She did not say White People... she was talking about a band called "Wet People", some opportunistic jerk is making it out that she said something she didn't say.

6. It's the name of the band that opened for her.
The White People Funk Band, or something like that.

Not really necessary to manufacture outrage about her batshittyness.

But she's not very self-aware, is she?

19. Sorry, I didn't mean that it was intentionally misleading, necessarily.
But if it were true that she was referring to the band that just played, then it would change everything about the statement she made. Bachman has said enough stupid things already, and she doesn't need anyones help in seeming any nuttier/awful than she actually is.

But if you don't know, then obviously you don't know. No blame there. :hi:

18. I was wondering why it was edited right after she said that.
Still, what was the band thinking? I know there's a serious shortage of original band names, but not knowing their background certainly leads to questions in white bread Iowa. Even more so, what was the thought process behind booking a band of that name to precede any presidential candidate? Especially a Republican! , I guess we missed the opening band, Crash Marquet & Wall Street Bandits.

As a symbol of Bachmann's campaign, the whole rally seemed a breach of judgement.

36. That's a weird thing to say. It's usually "let's hear it for the White People band"
Or "weren't they great?" not 'who likes white people?"

I meant to say "do we know the context of HER statement" my faux pas! Mea culpa.

But are you talking about 400 posts in a day? Not me. But I wanted to make sure when I posted the video of her and claimed she said it as "do you like white people" that I wasn't making a fool of myself by the nasty Faux followers.

21. "Who likes white people?" Sharks. Mountain lions. Grizzly bears. Streptococcus pyogenes.
Personally, I'd say with a little mustard and barbecue sauce, they're not as good as handraised pork, but they're all right.

43. Given her conservative voting base, saying she likes "wet people" is more of a scandal
I assume she means people who get wet only within the context of a heterosexual traditional church sanctioned marriage.

Or maybe she thinks she's appealing to the Latino vote that way.

27. Even if it's the band's name, any poli w/ 1/2 a brain would know not to say that.
So since it's Michele Bachmann, we'll have to give her a pass...

She either knew EXACTLY how it would be portrayed in the media if it got out and decided to once again play to her most basest of followers or figured she had an "out" by countering that she was just talking about the band.

35. This was edited to make it sound like she said "white people".
She actually said "wet people". If you listen to the whole thing, she talks about god and rain right after saying it. This clip cuts that part out and prints "Who likes white people" across the top.

This kind of editing and manufactured outrage is the kind of thing the right does. I always thought we were above that here on the left. Let's please be honest so we don't make ourselves look like fools.

Bachman is enough of a wack-job already without having to create things like this.

42. Does she say "White People" or "Wet People"? Also she was born in two cities
She says she was born in Waterloo and in Ceder Falls. I always thought that "born again" was a figure of speech. Or maybe she is just taking pandering to a new level.

53. The fact that a presidential candidate is doing revival tent is worthy of discussion.
I mean seriously, wtf - "I'm here to talk tonight about the Creator of the universe our lord and savior Jesus Christ." ???

This is someone running for President. That's just as alarming as if she said "who likes white people".

51. Well, the fun stuff comes later, in her Christian advocacy.
"I'm here to talk about the creator of the universe, Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ." Well, given the theory of the unified nature of the Holy Trinity she may be technically right, but the Son of God is seldom thought of as the Creator, but more often as the Savior, so she seems a little confused. The Trinity is usually referred to as God the Creator, Christ the Savior and Holy Ghost the Redeemer.

Now I'm an Episcopalian, so maybe fundamentalists have different roles for the Trinity, but if the Son is the Creator, what role does that leave for the Father? Even for someone who denies evolution youd think its difficult for the Son to create the Father. Its usually the other way around.

Later in the piece she says, and emphasizes, that God is not partial, and then, as part of the same topic, describes how God helped two soldiers defeat an entire army. I think her definition of partial may be a bit different than mine.
