This May Be Michele Bachmann's Worst Stunt Yet
Ugh, a Bachmann story that we'd like to ignore if it was just another stupid gaffey line about nothing, but this really seals it: she needs to be in a mental institution, which we mean 100% seriously and with the utmost concern for her mental health, or she needs to be sued for abuse of power or defamation or whatever legalese doo-da buzzword thing it is. SHE HAS RELEASED A DOCUMENT, friends, outlining how the Muslim Brotherhood has achieved "deep penetration" into the highest levels of the federal government. She points to Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton's State Department slave and Anthony Weiner's wife, as an Infiltrator, and how does she even have a security clearance? Michele Bachmann is either mentally insane or too stupid to be allowed on a federal ballot, and the latter would be an extraordinary feat. Why is she allowed to be in Congress? Why are these professionally damaging and hurtful and trashy hallucinatory accusations allowed to flow into the world without an official reprimand or censure?How is Michele Bachmann allowed to happen?
It is probable that the Muslim Brotherhood has apresencein Washington, since it RUNS THE COUNTRY OF EGYPT NOW and we recognize this. They surely have many lobbyists and diplomats in Washington, representing the nation of Egypt, in official capacity.
But... maybe they do the illegal infiltration spy route anyway, for the thrill! Here is Michele Bachmann's case against Huma Abedin, as described by Salon's Alex Seitz-Wald:
In the new letter, Bachmann questions why Abedin, a top aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the wife of former Rep. Anthony Weiner, was able to receive a security clearance despite having family members that Bachmann believes are connected to the Brotherhood. “I am particularly interested in exactly how, given what we know from the international media about Ms. Abedin’s documented family connections with the extremist Muslim Brotherhood, she was able to avoid being disqualified for a security clearance,” the congresswoman wrote.
As evidence, she pointed to Abedin’s late father, Professor Syed Z. Abedin, and a 2002 Brigham Young University Law Review article about his work. Bachmann points to a passage saying Abedin founded an organization that received the “quiet but active support” of the the former director of the Muslim World League, an international NGO that was tied to the Muslim Brotherhood in Europe in the 1970s through 1990s. So, to connect Abedin to the Muslim Brotherhood, you have to go through her dead father, to the organization he founded, to a man who allegedly supported it, to the organization that man used to lead, to Europe in the 1970s and 1990s, and finally to the Brotherhood.
The next paragraph of the law review article she cites quotes Syed Abedin concluding that the Koran calls for, “multiple ways of life … i.e. religious and cultural plurality among mankind.” Pretty scary Islamo-fascist stuff. It’s also worth nothing that Weiner, Huma Abedin’s husband, is one of the most unquestionably pro-Israeli politicians in America. But Bachmann would have us believe that the security clearance process somehow missed Abedin’s nefarious connections, and thus she knows more than, say, the CIA and FBI, who are involved in the background-check process.
Think of Joe McCarthy, if you will. Joe McCarthy is *the* example of witch-hunt absurdity in our politics, and he eventually faced censure, humiliation, and shame. Rightfully so -- and yet, the hunch that Soviet sympathizers and communists had infiltrated the government was far less outrageous than what Michele Bachmann is now doing. Joe McCarthy is like a ... super... good... guy.... he is a super good guy, compared to the Minnesota mistake.
Keith Ellison should accuse her at length of direct ties to Nazi Holocaust genocide crimes and just run with it for a while, why the hell not. It's not as if there are rules.
