Just when I was beginning to think — to HOPE that Michele Bachmann had quietly disappeared into the deep dark corridors of “She who has no common sense,” Bachmann reappears once again like a bad magician. She will not quit, but she is absolutely no good at what she does.
Rep. Michele Bachmann says the Muslim Brotherhood, the international Islamist movement that recently came to power in Egypt, has made “deep penetration” within the U.S. government, and she wants an investigation of its influence within five federal agencies.
Bachmann: ‘deep penetration in the halls of our U.S. government by the Muslim Brotherhood’
The Minnesota Republican, joined by Republican Reps. Trent Franks, Louie Gohmert, Thomas Rooney and Lynn Westmoreland, sent letters to the inspectors general of five government agencies responsible for national security to demand they investigate infiltration by the Muslim Brotherhood into the highest reaches of the federal government. In particular, Bachmann singled out Huma Abedin, the wife of former congressman Anthony Weiner and a top aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. In case Abedin hasn’t already been through enough already, Bachmann is now questioning her loyalty to the U.S. by asserting that Abedin has three family members who are connected to the Muslim Brotherhood (Abedin is Muslim). She’s been targeted before by anti-Muslim activists, and Bachmann notes that Abedin’s position “affords her routine access to the Secretary and to policy-making.” Bachmann also claims the state has “taken actions recently that have been enormously favorable to the Muslim Brotherhood and its interests.”
Bachmann is insane! Her homophobic and now Muslim-phobic nature has absolutely no business being present in our government. I would love it if Michele went to visit a Muslim country in the Middle East – and they arrested and tried her for being Christian and a threat to their religious beliefs and system.
You may read and/or download a pdf copy of the letter Bachmann and her groupies wrote to Ambassador Harold W. Greisel. All letters are the same except for the recipient.
