Michele Bachmann makes an appearance in a new documentary called “Socialism: A Clear and Present Danger,” produced by an organization that has been previously criticized for linking the theory of evolution to the Holocaust.
The documentary and corresponding book, titled “10 Truths about Socialism,” argue that socialism and “the envy-inflamed ideas of Marx and others are at war with the family, the church, and with God and His Word.”
Bachmann is the lone elected official to appear; others interviewed include several evangelical Church leaders, Joseph Farah, founder of WorldNetDaily.com, Steve Forbes, and Chinese basketball player Kai Chen.
Bachmann speaks in apocalyptic terms about the direction the country is heading. According to the film’s website, she says: "We're now spending money on a scale that no one has ever seen before. In history we've seen this happen just before the fall of Rome, where government raided its treasuries in order to grow a bigger bureaucracy. That's now happening in the United States. We have to reverse course immediately or it could mean the sinking of our civilization."
Florida-based Coral Ridge Ministries, an evangelical media organization founded by D. James Kennedy, produced the documentary.
Coral Ridge Ministries has gotten into hot water for past works, including a 2006 documentary, “Darwin’s Deadly Legacy,” which the Anti-Defamation League “blasted” for attempting “to link Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution to Adolf Hitler and the atrocities of the Holocaust.”
Amid reports that Donald Trump was in danger of not getting on Minnesota's presidential ballot, the Trump campaign says everything is in order and voters will have a chance to cast their ballot for him in November.
Interest groups spent less slightly money lobbying state government in 2015 than in the previous year, according to a report released Wednesday by the Minnesota Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board.
Hillary Clinton said Thursday that Donald Trump has unleashed the "radical fringe" within the Republican Party, including anti-Semites and white supremacists, dubbing the billionaire businessman's campaign as one that will "make America hate again."
