New Campaign Against Rep. Bachmann for Anti-Brotherhood Stance

witch-huntBy Clare Lopez

People for the American Way (PFAW) has launched a new campaign against Representative Michele Bachmann (R-MN), who, after her recent re-election to Congress, has been re-appointed to the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI).

A PFAW-sponsored petition with 178,000 signatures is to be presented to House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) on Monday 21 January 2012 to protest Bachmann’s HPSCI appointment.

Citing what PFAW calls “ugly Islamophobic fear mongering,” the petition decries what it alleges are Bachmann’s “unfounded and irresponsible attacks on dedicated public servants.”

Although it does not say so specifically, the PFAW petition likely refers to a set of letters signed by Rep. Bachmann and four Congressional colleagues – Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Trent Franks (R-AZ), Tom Rooney (R-FL) and Lynn Westmorland (R-GA).

The letters were sent in June 2012 to the inspectors general of the Departments of Defense, Homeland Security, Justice and State and the Office of the Director of National Security (ODNI). The letters note that U.S. foreign policy has undergone a dramatic shift in the direction of open support for the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood to power across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region and question whether that policy shift may be the result of Brotherhood influence operations.

Given that the 2008 Holy Land Foundation HAMAS terror funding case had established with voluminous documentary evidence from the Muslim Brotherhood’s own archives that its mission in America is “a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within,”  Congressional requests, most particularly from the HPSCI, that inspectors general look into the possibility of Brotherhood penetration into the highest levels of the U.S. government would seem to be most appropriate.

As the debacle of the Islamic Awakening continues to churn across the MENA (Middle East North Africa) region, and Muslim Brotherhood operatives consolidate their sharia rule in Tunisia, Libya and Egypt (and move closer to ousting Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad), the collaboration of the U.S. government in the Brotherhood’s “grand Jihad” is as critical to the jihadis as it is inexplicable to defenders of genuine democracy both at home and abroad.

As Rep. Bachmann and her colleagues rightly pointed out, U.S. policy, once implacably opposed to the march of Islamic jihad, shifted dramatically during the years following the 9/11 attacks. At the same time, individuals with close links to the Muslim Brotherhood were named to advisory and appointed government positions.

  2. THAT WOMAN is stronger than dirt! Leave her alone! She and Newt Gingrich both had the same message when they were running for President of the United States.
    Get the Muslims out of Washington D.C. AND Ban Sharia Law in the United States of America.

    Wellll, look who they kicked to the curb! Michelle Bachman and Newt Gingrich… to make room for Romney who wanted to use the U.S. Tax $ to build an “Islamist Charter School/”
    Not only that…at the same time, we had “54” Politicians in D.C. who had taken $$ from CAIR and HAMAS. Is it any wonder that Michelle Bachman was kicked to the curb?

    Many of us warned the various bloggers on two specific sites about Romney while Michelle and Newt both were running…guess what? We got “banned”. Yep, they sure did!

    Now examine he end result. Romney did get the nomination even with the fraud behind him yet, when Obama DEFRAUDED to a much greater degree and ended up in the WH again… what happened to Mr. Romney — What? He didn’t ask for an investigation? Hmmm wonder why?

    Michelle Bachman has more guts in her little toe than Obama or Romney!

  3. I call them Murdering Savages every chance I get..She is a Sr. Sen a I don’t they can do anything but complain…. BUT if the Wimpering, cry baby tries he can relieve her… Then All HOLY HELL WOULD BREAK LOOSE..And Not Muslim…
