Montel Williams to Rep. Michele Bachmann: Use the Knife to Kill Yourself

September 4th, 2009 2:03 PM

Perhaps he's auditioning for a part on MSNBC: The place for Michele Bachmann bashing.

Air America host Montel Williams stepped away from his mild-mannered World Series of Poker playing, Big Orange prescription drug bus driving and medicinal marijuana advocacy roles to fire a salvo at Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., encouraging her to stab herself on his Sept. 2 radio show (h/t Radio Equalizer Brian Maloney):

WILLIAMS (1:30:32): Michelle, slit your wrist.
Go ahead... or, do us all a better thing [sic].
Move that knife up about two feet.
Start right at the collarbone.

Bachmann has been a regular target of lefties in the media time and time again. MSNBC personalities have regularly attacked Bachmann and other conservative women on the network, with Chris Matthew once referring to Bachmann as a "Mata Hari." On MSNBC's Sept. 1 "Countdown with Keith Olbermann," host Keith Olbermann entertained the musings of Dan Savage, a syndicated sex columnist, author and gay-rights advocate, who suggest Bachmann and Fox News host Glenn Beck were trying to get Obama killed.

And Olbermann and the local liberal Minnesota press also went after Bachmann's son on Aug. 13. So, that only begs the question - where is Montel Williams getting his vitriol from?
