Michelle Bachmann asked for an investigation into Huma Abedin's alleged ties to the Muslim Brotherhood last week. Those allegations led to a threat against Abedin over the weekend. Now, she's accusing Rep. Keith Ellison of being associated with the Muslim Brotherhood?!
Should Bachmann be charged with inciting violence? Has she gone completely mad? Or is it the one who yells the loudest that should be watched the closest?
Nine other racist Republicans signed Bachmann's letter calling for inquiries into Muslims holding government offices including southern representatives Lynn Westmoreland (Georgia) and Tom Rooney (Florida).
She certainly appears to be racist and/or targeting people based on their religion. Huma Abedin is a practicing Muslim, as is Keith Ellison. They are also both dark-skinned. Logical, liberal minds know that adds up to religious and race intolerance.
The Republican party is quickly backing away from these statements. Surprise. They don't want the entire nation to see them for what they truly are so Sen. John McCain and even Speaker Boehner have spoken out against Bachmann. Boehner calls her remarks "dangerous."
Republican Mike Rogers, former FBI agent, told USA Today that Bachmann's accusations about the Muslim Brotherhood's infiltration of U.S. government are false. "That kind of assertion certainly doesn't comport with the Intelligence Committee, and I can say that on the record," Rogers said.
Her allegations that the Muslim Brotherhood is infiltrating the White House, the Pentagon, and the FBI is nothing more than yet another personal attack on Barack Obama. President Obama can say that he's not a Muslim 50,000 more times and bone-heads like Bachmann still won't believe it. What makes her so much more "in the know" than everyone else?
Perhaps Michelle Bachmann should be named on that inquiry letter.
