Keith Ellison: Michele Bachmann Thinks Muslims 'Are Evil'

Keith Ellison: Michele Bachmann Thinks Muslims 'Are Evil'

“Are you in a position in your job where you ever have to hire someone? If you are, have you ever had a situation whereby you looked at someone's resume?

Here's how I picture the MB's resume:

Present employer: We've taken over Egypt
previous employer: Nazis (but we don't do that any longer)”

“What did you mean "shown to be so" ? Got any proof? The issue isnt whether SHE is involved with he MB, because it's common knowledge she has some family members with ties to the MB, that's all over the internet and is difficult to deny. As for her, I don't have a clue about her involvement.

If we are serious about not allowing unfriendly foreign operatives into our federal government this would be a non-story as the lady would have undergone the proper vetting for her security clearance before she ever started a job working for someone as important as our sec'y of state. But as you know, we are not serious. Not even Barack Obama was fully vetted by our congress prior to running for president, thus it was the democrats that created the 'birthers', all because they didn't do their job. The only thing the left is serious about is political correctness. Need proof? take a look at what's been happening this week in the Fort Hood shooter case and the 'special' treatment of Nadal prior to the shooting. This was/is a bad bad man and he was allowed his special circumstance simply because he is Muslim.”

“Lefties are leaving out one important aspect of this. Bachmann's links are true. Abedin's family has a relationship with the MB.

I would only agree that a specific person should not have been named without very pertinent proof, so she messed up by jumping the gun. But I do agree we can't allow any MB operatives to infiltrate our gov't if at all possible. Don't forget their history with the Nazis. Oh, and don't forget that we give Egypt -now apparently controlled by the Muslim brotherhood- a fistful of tax dollars every year.”

“YOUR family has a connection with the MB.”

keraz on Jul 20, 2012 at 09:36:37

“You're right, Grilled. Yesterday, I heard an interview with Congresswoman Bachmann. She said she was not saying the Hillary Clinton's aide was in the MB. She said that, when she was hired, people seemed to glance over the fact that her father and brother were both in the MB.

I think the links you mentioned were links to the Al-Jazerra website but those links were recently scrubbed.”

“grilledturbot, I think it's interesting that both the M Brotherhood & Michelle B have the same initials...does that mean she is a secret member? Makes about as much sense.”

“The Muslim Brotherhood is a huge political party in several Middle East countries. Anyone whith family there, or from there, likely has "someone" who is associated with them in some way.

It is ture that many years ago certain things they did and said had questionable leanings, but just like the current political parties here, they are very different from what they were 20-30 years ago.”

“So you're saying they can't bring any charges against Romney because he hasn't broken any laws correct?

Remember the Sestak case? Someone in our White House levied a bribe and specifically broke the law when they tried to get him to step down and not run against Arlen. But with a broken DOJ naturally nothing happened. Just like nothing will happen with Holder being in contempt of congress.”

“It was a sign the republicans in the House were doing what their constitutuents want them to do which is repeal Obamatax. Unlike the vast majority of democratic house and senate members that think they know best and do NOT attempt to do what citizens are telling them to do.

BTW, if you are referring to how dems said repubs wasted millions trying to repeal Obamatax just keep in mind the numbers come from the average daily cost of the country having a House and Senate to begin with. In other words, republicans could have all been on vacation (or campaigning like Barack does constantly) and taxpayers would still experience the exact same cost.”

“Seriously, the author thinks Romney's tax returns could ever be more important to the general citizenry of the country than rampant 41 or 42 month long 8%+ unemployment? Right, the guy that badly needs a job, maybe his unemployment benefit is running out, is more concerned about the tax returns than where he'll pick up his next few dollars to feed his family. Don't think so. What a delusional attitude. Didn't your precious BHO get a poll bump from Friday when he said "If you've got a business, you didn't build that" ? He insulted a very large number of Americans that day (and every day with his lackluster performance) but dems/libs still think these very people that O is critical of will now vote for him? One thing you could do to help O, don't ever separate him from his 'prompter.”

“So you're a Glenn Beck watcher LOL, I wouldn't have thought so. That wasn't my source, but I found this for you: (UK telegraph)

A bust of the former prime minister once voted the greatest Briton in history, which was loaned to George W Bush from the Government's art collection after the September 11 attacks, has now been formally handed back.

The bronze by Sir Jacob Epstein, worth hundreds of thousands of pounds if it were ever sold on the open market, enjoyed pride of place in the Oval Office during President Bush's tenure.

But when British officials offered to let Mr Obama to hang onto the bust for a further four years, the White House said: "Thanks, but no thanks."

Diplomats were at first reluctant to discuss the whereabouts of the Churchill bronze, after its ejection from the seat of American power. But the British Embassy in Washington has now confirmed that it sits in the palatial residence of ambassador Sir Nigel Sheinwald, just down the road from Vice President Joe Biden's official residence. It is not clear whether the ambassador plans to keep it in Washington or send it back to London.
Churchill has less happy connotations for Mr Obama than those American politicians who celebrate his wartime leadership. It was during Churchill's second premiership that Britain suppressed Kenya's Mau Mau rebellion. Among Kenyans allegedly tortured by the colonial regime included one Hussein Onyango Obama, the President's grandfather.”

“Where to begin....how about a vintage O fabrication? Now, let me prepare you because it has a good ending so don't be dismayed when you read the gory middle parts.

It was recently revealed that O has been using "story-tellin" regarding his grandfathers torture whilst incarcerated by the evil British. To perpetuate the lie he sent the bust of Churchill back to Great Britain, one of our steadfast allies, alongwith an iPod and some dvd's.

So you have dual good endings! First one is his grandfather was not tortured and the second good ending, also our Thanksgiving miracle, is Barack's defeat in November.”

“Took me awhile to figure out what you were talking about....but, finally, I found the source --- Glenn Beck.....quite a source that Glenn is....anyway, here is a quote from an English newspaper:

A British Embassy spokesman said: "The bust of Sir Winston Churchill by Sir Jacob Epstein was uniquely lent to a foreign head of state, President George W Bush, from the Government Art Collection in the wake of 9/11 as a signal of the strong transatlantic relationship.

"It was lent for the first term of office of President Bush. When the President was elected for his second and final term, the loan was extended until January 2009.

"The new President has decided not to continue this loan and the bust has now been returned. It is on display at the Ambassador's Residence."

As to whether or not President Obama's father was tortured (frankly, I hadn't heard it was a big issue of national importance.), what is the source of that disclosure....hopefully, it more than just Glenn.

I find it hard to believe you are worked up about this....as I don't really see where the Anglo-American relationship is undergoing a crisis. But maybe Glenn Beck has some inside information....”

But no, you can't do that because you don't really have anything. It is sad however, to know about all of these poor people without identification not even being able to get government assistance like food stamps since they can't even prove who they are.”
