Former U.S. Representative Michele Bachmann made outrageous claims about the End of Times on Wednesday during a radio interview with Tony Perkins.

Bachmann, who attempted to win the presidency in 2012, was eager to relay her prophesy regarding Jews and Doomsday. “Day by day by day, we are seeing the fulfillment of scripture,” Bachmann said. She declared that signs of the inevitable apocalypse appeared in “almost every article in the paper.”

Bachmann has been no stranger to extreme comments in the past, but this time she turned her attention to the Jewish faith:

“That’s why we as a remnant want to be faithful in these days and do what it is that the Holy Spirit is speaking to each one of us, to be faithful in the Kingdom and to help bring in as many as we can – even among the Jews – share Jesus Christ with everyone that we possibly can because, again, He’s coming soon.”

Thankfully, with Bachmann out of politics for now, comments like these are just passing offenses rather than real threats to our government and society. And if the rapture does come to pass? One can only hope that it takes Michele and leaves the rest of us here in peace.
