Michele Bachmann Accuses Congressman Keith Ellison of Being Affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood Too
Continuing her attacks on other members of the federal government, the always-interesting Rep. Woman Michele Bachmann accused Democratic Congressman Keith Ellison of being associated with the Muslim Brotherhood.
“He has a long record of being associated with [the Council on American–Islamic Relations] and with the Muslim Brotherhood,” Bachmann told Glenn Beck.
Ellison, who is the one sane political leader out of Minnesota, said that Bachmann’s allegations are false and problematic. He also says that Bachmann is a McCarthy-era figure who has an intense fear of people who are different from herself. Bachmann strongly believes that Muslim extremists have infiltrated the US government at its highest levels.
“I am not now, nor have I ever been, associated with the Muslim Brotherhood,” said Ellison.
Bachmann appears to actually be the extremist as of late. Even her fellow Republicans are telling her to calm down and shut it down. Republican Senator John McCain from Arizona denounced Bachmann on the Senate floor this week and even House Speaker John Boehner said that Bachmann’s remarks are “dangerous.”
Bachmann has been requesting investigations into the Muslim Brother’s “influence operations” in federal agencies within the United States. She actually named a State Department official, Huma Abedin, who is a top official in the administration of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Beck, being extreme himself, backed Bachmann’s remarks, stating that Ellison is like a “mafia hit man.”
Bachmann continued to say that it is “my duty” to speak out on the matter, and she even accused the FBI of covering up information about the infiltration.
