Bachmann: I Want People “Armed With Knowledge”

It looks like Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) has now become more careful with her use of the English language. In an interview with NewsMax, Bachmann spelled out in detail what she means when calling for people to be “armed and dangerous” on the issue of cap-and-trade.

Check out the 3:25 mark:

“I want my people in Minnesota to be the most educated people,” said Bachmann. “I want them to be armed with knowledge, so they can be dangerous to the policies of the left.” (Emphasis hers.)In an interview from last week, Bachmann toned down her previous rhetoric that the country was at the point of revolution, by making it absolutely clear that she was calling for people to organize against President Obama in the 2010 and 2012 elections.

Bachmann did get a few details wrong in this latest interview, though. Among other things, she referred to Judd Gregg as Obama’s former Commerce Secretary, though he never actually took office in the cabinet, and she referred to Obama’s Climate Czar Carol Browner as being the Energy Secretary. But those are small concerns, if she is in fact turning the rhetoric down a notch.
