I'm calling it a fake
As little as I think of Michele Bachmann and/or Fox news, I couldn't find any support for that being anything other than a satire fake.

Are you trying to say that was a real event? Then source of the photo, please.

Re: I'm calling it a fake
Is it a real Fox fake or a fake Fox fake?

The mind reels.

For me, the comedy is not in what the stupid thing that MB allegedly said, because, come on, she says all kinds of stupid shit...

The comedy is in the fact that you cannot tell whether or not she actually said that.

ABE: the point is that the hilarity doesn't rely on whether or not she actually said it.

Well, it depends on how you parse it. The U.S. has had lots of Presidents who were like Benjamin Franklin ... in one way or another. Grover Cleveland, for example, was an overweight horndog.

Re: I'm calling it a fake
I guess the symbol in the upper-right indicates something is fishy.

Besides, I find it hard to believe that Fox news would be so ignorant to accept Benjamen Franklin as having been president (they would have been the ones putting the caption up), even if Michale Bachmann had said such a thing. Or do you think that Fox news would be out to make MB look stupid?

The comedy is in the fact that you cannot tell whether or not she actually said that.

I think this should have gone into the "Humor" topic. Fox news has plenty to call them on without hitting them with something that they didn't do.

I just did a quick set of searches and it appears that this is actually a fake. She never claimed Benjamin Franklin was president.

However, she DID claim that the Founding Fathers worked tireless to abolish slavery and that Carbon Dioxide is not a harmful gas because it is 'natural' and exists in 'nature'.

And of course, let's not forget that she famously said vaccines can cause mental retardation in children. To which, she responded to the person making the claim by exclaming: "Mom??!!"

Ok, I made up the last part.

Re: Due When? Why?
Also (ironically), a time that right wingers often cite as being the 'good times'.

I think that had more to do with how they were allowed to treat minorities and women.

Almost all news is false news. Its propaganda from the powers that be. Control the media and you control the people, as you have to win minds and hearts to start new wars, and demonise enemies.
Left is the dame as right, right the same as left. Democracy the same as dictatorship, because those behind the scenes control both and all sides.

Conservatives and liberals are pitted against each other but they are the same and selfish, and news controls their minds. False news controls their education and upbringing as with forecd education, no difference. When alternative news and teachings are not allowed, all become indocrinated.

But the Lord always allows the truth to be there, so that no one can excuse themselves

I can't hear you over the echo in my chamber

Yeah, I hear this a lot, from right and left, especially in regards to the "lamestream media". I certainly agree that there's a lot of truth to it.

But then, where do you get your information? How do you know whether your sources are reliable? How do you ensure that you haven't trapped yourself in an epistemologically closed bubble that merely confirms what you already believe?

I suppose that religious crackpots can feel smug that the Holy Spirit is guiding them to The Truth that the sheeple can't see, but the rest of us don't have it so easy.

Common sense, travel, honesty, basic truths needed for discernment
Yes, you need common sense, and it helps to have traveled and experienced different cultures and meet different people...and talked to them as individuals...and discerned whats hapenning there and HERE and everywhere.

It takes honesty, and the truths will not stoke a persons pride, or nationalism. You have to understand human nature, and how the rich or powerful will do anything to gain more power and wealth, including killing their own. You have to know that they lie and steal and kill for their greed sake. You have to be beyond racism and nationalism and pride to find out 'whats really happening'..... as thats one of the places I go to help see fulfilled prophecy, via different real journalists and authors and via honest comments.

It takes maturity, basic knowledge, not just the Holy Spirit. The Lord gives His people wisdom, but most Christians are taught sickening political/nationalism which makes them prone to support war (and even torture) more than their fellow citizens etc.

How sad, but such is the sick state of religion and politics.

Yet with honesty, people can discern fake news and propaganda from whats really happening.

Perhaps you could go to a widely known news organization, pick out 2 or 3 stories from a single day, and show how they are false. Otherwise, I can only conclude that you are blowing smoke.
