No, Michele Bachmann Doesn't Want to Ban Halloween

Michele Bachmann Wants to Ban Halloween

Here's a direct quote from the Free Wood Post article claiming that Republican House member Michele Bachmann wants to ban Halloween:

"We have to ban Halloween to save the children. That's how they indoctrinate them you know. Giving them Satan's candy sacks. Soon you've got a country full of children sucking on Satan's sacks and thinking liberal thoughts instead of good Christian ones."

And here, for all you social mediaites who believe Bachmann has really "declared war on Halloween," is what the Free Wood Post says in its own online disclaimer:

"All news articles contained within FreeWoodPost.com are fiction, and presumably fake news."

Pass it on.

While this is satire, one true story about the Princess Numbskull was her efforts as a Stillwater Minnesota School Board memeber to ban the Disney movie Alladin from a pre-school party because it promoted Witchcraft and Paganism … so the humor isn’t far from the truth

The best part of the satire here is that it is almost believable that it came from her….

Just like Michele every other time she opens mouth, inserts foot, then runs from it. remember on Chris Mathews she said the govt should be investigated? then denied it? then when the video played she said it was taken out of context? then when asked what context she said the video was doctored? common author. Just listen to you? its fake pass it on? for gods sake say she messed up we respect honesty
