"If English was good enough for Jesus when he wrote the Bible" wasn't said by Bachmann

Did you hear the latest ridiculous Michele Bachmann quote about that multilingual Coke ad?

"If English was good enough for Jesus when he wrote the Bible, it should be good enough for Coke," Michele Bachmann is quoted as saying on Fox News in a viral image circulating Facebook.

Just one problem: She didn't say it, and a version of this fake quote has been circulating since 2011.

FOR REAL MICHELE BACHMANN QUOTES: www.shitbachmannsays.com

When the quote originally appeared on a spoof website back in 2011, it read, "If English was good enough for Jesus Christ, it's good enough for every child in America to speak."

When Coke premiered a commercial featuring "America the Beautiful" sung in different languages, some conservatives were predictably chafed. The 2011 meme was refashioned to reflect the stupidity of this sentiment and went viral anew. 

Bachmann, it should be noted, has not expressed an opinion about the Coke spot.

Wow, really? We need city pages to tell us that a quote off of the "Christans for Michelle Bachmann page is fake? Next, you're going to try to tell me that "Marijuana Makes You Violent" isn't science based and i should be wary when they tell me that Marijuana is responsible for all violent crimes in the history of the universe...
Bravo...*slow clap*, Bravo... city pages...Well Played.

Actually I always heard the quote attributed to Miriam Amanda "Ma" Ferguson. First female governor of Texas elected in 1924 and again in 1932. Democrat. She was against the Klan, prohibition, and women getting the vote. She was also know for issuing about 100 pardons a month…. if the price was right.

If you actually read the article, it very clearly states she did not actually say this people. Not to say that there aren't plenty of other reasons to hate her.

Its equally if not more sad when a so called "legitimate" outlet such as City Pages allows such ignorance without proper retraction.

This is the first I've heard of this quote. Even though it's fake, it's so sweetly believable from her.

Hey Kevin Hoffman:


Was Rupar fired? He hasn't been blogging for 2 days now.


So are you going to replace him as City Page's Liberal/Progressive/OWS/Warrior of Social Justice/Minority-Crime Apologist/Communist/Marxist/Socialist/Anti-American/Let's Post Non-Stories about Michelle Bachmann Because We Have No Journalist Integrity Whatsoever Blogger?


Wow. I can't wait. Just try to have an opinion and state it very clear in each of your blogs. Rupar sucked at that. He was too wishy washy. And I hope that City Pages pays you more than they did Rupar. He is 30 years old and they only paid him enough to rent a shitty one-bedroom apartment and to ride a one-speed bike to work and back.


Speaking of which.....Isn't City Pages owned by a corporation? You know, those evil entities who dare try to make a profit at the expense of your labor? If City Pages is not paying you $30/hr (plus full benefits) for your brilliant journalistic talent, I think that it is high time that us Social Justice Warriors boycott City Pages. Why should City Pages (and their Village Voice conglomerate) be allowed to pay their employees shitty wages while the big wigs rake in all the profit?


That's travesty, I say! 


The irony is that the big wigs who own Village Voice are most likely conservatives who are making a profit off of your Liberal bullshit blogging, but most readers of CP (and VV) are stupid brainwashed morons (see MichelleBachmann, MNJoe, etc.) who buy into it. Each time they spout their moronic tirade, the conservative owners of CP/VV are getting more advertising dollars each time someone clicks "post comment". Such as I am going to do right now.


Liberals are so stupid it is not even funny. They are so stupid that they don't realize that their own party is fucking them over. 


But anyway, Kev......congrats on the promotion!

Why don't you all read the actual article & not just the headline, she didn't say that, it's been going around for 3 years!!! You can't believe every headline you see on Facebook, common people, be smarter than that!

I was going to call BS that not even MB could say something that dumb but the article seems to say it wasn't true. Granted, it's a marvelously sensationalized article! Duffusses.

I don't see why a Facebook page called Christians for Michele Bachmann would make something like this up. I think City Pages is off base here.

Who voted for her? The right and the middle, because the left's candidates were - GASP - worse.

Here's my question...I have plenty of friends on the right, left, middle, and I don't know a single person who can stand this gal. So my question is, WHO VOTED FOR HER?

While she may not have said this, she does have numerous quotes that are even more ridiculous that is correctly attributed to her.

@WhiteMatt   "I will tell you that I had a mother last night come up to me here in Tampa, Florida, after the debate. She told me that her little daughter took that vaccine, that injection, and she suffered from mental retardation thereafter." –Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), on the HPV vaccine, Fox News interview, Sept. 12, 2011



Yeah liberals are the stupid ones.

Um, no.

Her district is HEAVILY conservative and would vote for a goat if it had (R) next to the name, kind of the opposite of Minneapolis.

Been looking for a Video to see if she said it, found none. However your comment of only Democrats doing such things is a lie, Fox News and Rep is constantly spreading lies as facts. Obama isn’t American, he is a communist, a Muslim. Death panels. Raise min wage will cost jobs, I could go on and on on the Rep lies

1) Read the article. She didn't say it.

2) It's sanskrit, not sand script.


3) The Bible wasn't written in Sanskrit.


4) The Bible wasn't written in Latin, but it was translated into Latin.

Watch how Stupid these Poverty Pimping Democrats are.  If you can make sense of anything said in this presser on "Full Employment Caucus" you are from a different planet.    Take a look at these freaks, and this is only just a few that represent the Democrat Party.  Remember MB, they need a permanent underclass in order to get elected by giving free stuff, the constituency will never ever reconcile what good voting for them does.  This exemplifies Stupid.    Just take a look.

@kurt124  Just to put the debate to bed about which party is stupid I will point out Charlie Rangel is a member of the House of Representatives, not a Senator.   Hey stupid, why is it you never know what you are talking about?    You think it might have something to do with you being a hardcore member of the stupid party?   

MicheleBachmann

@kurt124   All you have is childish insults with racist overtones.  Nothing in that video is as dumb as what Bachmann says.  Also Bachmann wasn't holding some press conference.  She was running for President.  I think its a little more embarrassing that is the best your side can put up for Presidential material.  No matter how dumb any of these back benchers sounds they have no shot at being President because the Democrats are a party filled with smart people.  Bachmann was leading the polls for President at one time.   The Democrats aren't the party that just lost their front runner because the stupid fat boy shut down a bridge throwing a tantrum.   No one is buying your bullshit about which party is stupid.   


If what they said was so dumb you could have written a smart, researched, informed mocking of what they said.  Instead you just call a bunch of black people pimps because you are mad they care about reducing unemployment.  Dumb racists like you are such a joke.  You can't see one story without posting racist stupidity.   You are boring crazy losers.  You are exactly why Republicans are such a joke.  Congrats on 6 more years of Senator Franken.  Nominate some racist nitwit just like you.  I'm sure he will get 35% of the vote.
