Former Republican Congresswoman and failed 2020 presidential candidate Michele Bachmann of Minnesota said on a World Prayer Network Zoom call on Wednesday night that Democrats and proponents of critical race theory are ignoring the significance of September 11th because they only see the United States as an “oppressor nation.”
Bachmann also accused the aforementioned of using the COVID-19 pandemic as an excuse to forget the tragedy of that fateful day in 2001, which is why – according to Bachmann – God recruited her to host an event featuring conspiracy theorists and right-wing bozos on the eve of the 20th anniversary of the deadliest terrorist attacks in history.
“The Lord spoke to me about four months ago and said to do a conference on September 11th. Well, that isn’t quite as riveting as a horrible tragedy that impacted people to the depths of their soul. America was changed forever but it was a different type of conference than the election integrity conference that just touched a nerve with people. So we started putting this together,” said Bachmann.
“I noticed that in academia, there really wasn’t much of an emphasis, there were no symposiums that I was seeing on September 11th. There may be some now but I hadn’t seen any when we were starting to put this together. And so we began this process and one reason why it was intriguing to me is because America has taken a turn. From all of our cultural gatekeepers – whether it is from the entertainment industry, academia, even corporate culture – America is now becoming an ‘anti’ view. It is not a pro-America view; it is an anti-America view,” she declared.
“And so I noticed in July, for instance, that [President] Joe Biden had canceled the Fourth of July celebrations in Washington, DC. A lot of Democrat governors, Democrat mayors, were canceling their Fourth of July festivities, all under the auspices of COVID. And I thought, ‘This is very, very strange. There’s an effort to cancel not only our voices, but there’s an effort to cancel America’s history, traditions, and even our holidays and our heroes.’ And so I was even more convinced that we were on the right track here at Regent by focusing on September 11th,” Bachmann continued, referring to Pat Robertson’s Regent University, where her soiree will take place.
“One reason why I think there’s such an ‘anti’ mood towards September 11th, is because America was the victim that day,” the ex-lawmaker added. “Under critical race theory – whether it’s being taught through corporations, or whether it’s through our K-12 schools, or preschools, or at the collegiate level – critical race theory says that America is the oppressor nation and we, the American people, are the bad guys and any other nation is the victim. And so I knew again that focusing on what really happened on that day probably wasn’t going to happen, so we pulled together incredible speakers for this to speak the truth because, at Regent University, we’re committed to being truth-tellers and speaking the truth.”
