Michele Bachmann signs yet another pledge and disavows Hispanic vote

 Michele Bachmann signs pledge to secure our Southern border to keep out Mexicans and Syrians

Never one to shy away from quixotic pledges that are either homophobic or racist in nature, Michele Bachmann has signed yet another.  This pledge solidifies her right wing bona fides as being someone who doesn’t particularly give a damn about brown people from South of the border, and distinguishes herself from Gov. Rick Perry who might have come across as seeming too compassionate for a GOP presidential hopeful.

She’s not using John McCain’s painfully forced “Complete the danged fence” phrase, but Michele Bachmann is vowing to do just that. Yesterday the struggling Tea Party favorite signed a pledge to complete a double fence along the whole US-Mexico border by 2013, calling it “job No. 1,” reports the Los Angeles Times“And it will be every mile, it will be every yard, it will be every foot, it will be every inch of that border, because that portion you fail to secure is the highway into the United States.”

Bachmann is so far the only candidate to sign the pledge of Americans for Securing the Border; she also indicated that she’d be willing to authorize federal agents to conduct raids in search of illegal immigrants.

By doubling down on immigration, she turns the heat up on Rick Perry, whose longtime support of in-state tuition for illegals has proven less than popular among conservatives. Bachmann emphasized the national security aspect of the border, saying, “Fifty-nine thousand this year came across the border … from Yemen , from Syria. These are nations that are state sponsors of terror. They’re coming into our country.”

Only Syria is among the four nations the US lists as state sponsors of terror, notes the Times.

    Bachmann did not “disavow the Histpanic vote.” That is a complete fabrication by Collin Hinds, whose Team Obama blog is political propaganda, not reporting, just has his Bachamnn photo was doctored.

      Who are you going to vote for in the primaries, Derek, and why? Which one of these fine candidates do you prefer? Do you agree that Perry’s immigration initiatives in Texas seem too fair and compassionate?

      OMG, that’s great! Jess, this moment should be shared by all. Interested in making it a post? I’m stealing this for my FB page.

        I am certain Betty Bowers will be happy to know her good Christian ways are being posted all over the internetz machine. Steal away.

    This is my new reply to all things crazy eyes. I’ve run out of ways to call this woman stupid.

    Brilliant, Collin. This is exactly how Meg Whitman and her $170 million war chest lost against Gov. Brown.

    Witless supported “protecting” the borders to White audiences, and was against it with Latinos: seems pensaba que los Mexicano-Americanos no podía hablar Inglés.

    How much money do you think she’d spend on the “war” on drugs? These are the same conservatives that proclaim progressives waste money. The irony.

    It’s not that her campaign is falling apart, it’s that she fell apart years ago…

    Here’s the pledge I hope Bachmann signs: “I’m dropping out of the race.”

    Perfect photo, Collin.
