Michele Bachmann isn’t smart enough to do this on her own. Makes you wonder who is helping her and why? Is it possible that someone wants to create chaos in the House and harm as many normal Republicans as possible?
Ever heard of the Salem Witch Trials? We’re now dealing with the Tea Party B^tch trials.
“...The first Amendment defines American political community, based on individual integrity and voluntary association. Congress cannot interfere with an individual’s religion or speech. It cannot restrict a citizen’s communication with others to form community by worship, publishing, gathering together or petitioning the government. The First Amendment addresses the rights of freedom of religion (prohibiting Congress from establishing a religion and protecting the right to free exercise of religion), freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of assembly, and freedom of petition…”
Are you now or have you ever been a member of the Muslim religion?
The Pink Flamingo is expecting to hear something like this before much longer. According to Mark Levin, Michele Bachmann is a heroine.
If you are to believe Andrew McCarthy…
“…The letter averred that Abedin “has three family members — her late father, her mother and her brother — connected to Muslim Brotherhood operatives and/or organizations.” It turns out, however, that Abedin herself is directly connected to Abdullah Omar Naseef, a major Muslim Brotherhood figure involved in the financing of al-Qaeda. Abedin worked for a number of years at the Institute for Muslim Minority Affairs as assistant editor of its journal. The IMMA was founded by Naseef, who remained active in it for decades, overlapping for several years with Abedin. Naseef was also secretary general of the Muslim World League in Saudi Arabia, perhaps the most significant Muslim Brotherhood organization in the world. In that connection, he founded the Rabita Trust, which is formally designated as a foreign terrorist organization under American law due to its support of al-Qaeda....”
Seventeen conservative “leaders” sent a letter to John Boehner criticizing him for refusing to allow Michele Bachmann to go all Joe McCarthy on members of the Muslim religion. Then I saw the list. What a total and complete crock. These are no more “leaders” than my toy poodle, Ronald Rumsfeld Reagan Reidhead is. Fact is, I have more faith in the dog than I do these “leaders”. Most of them are people who are conning their idiot donors into supporting their lifestyles of the annoying and conservative. Never mind that numerous credible religious leaders in the country have denounced her.
One of them, Judson Phillips, well….
“...“John McCain needs to sit down and shut up,” said Judson Phillips, head of Tea Party Nation, in an email blast headlined “Michele Bachmann and the battle for the truth.” The Family Research Council lauded her for asking the “tough questions,” saying, “Like us, she believes the business of national security shouldn’t be driven by political correctness. It requires careful scrutiny, vigorous debate, and fearless leadership—three things on which Rep. Bachmann will not compromise.” Sean Hannity called Bachmann and her four congressional colleagues “modern day Paul Reveres.” Christian radio host Steve Deace tweeted, “Grassroots patriots: want to know who’s at least somewhat on your side? Look at their response to Michele Bachmann controversy. Litmus Test.”…”
“...Yesterday Sean Hannity had both Louie Gohmert and Andy McCarthy on his show to explain the Muslim Brotherhood inquiry made by Gohmert, Bachmann, and three other GOP Reps. Gohmert helped draft the letters that were sent to the 5 Inspector Generals and explains that it wasn’t an accusation, but an inquiry and had the GOP leadership and other Republicans read the letters they would have known that….”
In other words, it is now about who someone you know – knows, that can get you damned as a terrorist. I wonder where that would put Svetlana Alliluyeva, Alina Fernández Revuelta, and other relatives of communist dictators who defected to this country? Today, I gather they would be damned as evil, not welcomed as heroes for defecting.
Strangely enough, the “libertarian” Republicans and tea partiers are the ones most likely to be anti-Muslim. They’re the ones pushing to have Muslims exposes as terrorists and Islamics. Yes, it is ironic, because they are allegedly the live and let live folks – right?
Here’s the thing:
The alleged crime Huma Abedin has committed against tea party, libertarian, and far right sensibilities is the fact that she knew people, met someone, or was related to someone. That’s it. Nothing more…just innuendo.
This is the United States of America. We don’t destroy a person because of someone they met or are related to, no matter who they are. It doesn’t matter who that person annoys, or how important the accuser is. This is the United States of America. We don’t do this sort of thing.
Do you have relatives you don’t want to be associated with? I sure do. When I moved here to New Mexico, there was a Reidhead family. They were descended from John Reidhead, Sr. first family, John Reidhead, Jr. We are descended from the second family, and Paris Reidhead, I. Big difference. Our families have never had anything to do with one another.
This bunch of Reidheads moved not long after I arrived. They were polygamist. They were con artists. They were thieves. When they moved, they gave their creditors my phone number. After over a decade, I am STILL getting calls about them.
Should I be held responsible for the criminal activities of someone remotely related to me? I guess, if I were Muslim, I should be, right? Doesn’t matter about the Constitution, Bill of Rights, or basic human decency. If Michele Bachmann needs attention, she can destroy whom she wishes. She’s done it to Tim Pawlenty. She’s done it to Newt Gingrich. All that matters is that the emotionally disturbed attention whore gets attention.
She goes on television and gains support of the other attention whores who feed off one another. Doesn’t matter that she could have caused serious harm to come to Hillary Clinton. Hillary’s a Democrat, she’s asking for it, right? WRONG
Michele Bachmann and her “conservative” associates are assaulting, raping the Constitution they claim to love and adore. There is no other way to put it. They are, in their own little way, destroying the very Constitution they claim the revere.
It really doesn’t matter if they are destroying the GOP. More and more The Pink Flamingo is hearing that there are Republicans who are saying that they refuse to be in a party where someone like Michele Bachmann is allowed to spew her hatred.
There are no conservative bigots they say.
The conservative bigots are forgetting that in this country, we are innocent until proven guilty. We are not to practice guilt by association. They are forgetting we have libel laws. They are forgetting there are laws against slander. They are forgetting we have the right to practice the religion of our choice.
They are also forgetting the fact that most of them claim to be either “Christian” or “Jewish”. I might want to remind them of a little group of rules they want plastered to the wall of every school room, every public building in the country. Frankly, if they can’t at least pretend to follow these 10 little rules for human decency, the how the hell to they plan to hot glue them to the rear end of ever school child in the country?
I hope Huma Abedin decides to file the biggest lawsuit you’ve ever seen against Michele Bachman and misc. “conservative” leaders. They deserve it.
