What Communists were for Joe McCarthy, the Muslim Brotherhood is for Michele Bachmann

Michele Bachmann thinks the Muslim Brotherhood has made "deep penetration" into the U.S. government, and she wants five federal agencies to launch an investigation into its influence.

And you thought McCarthyism was a relic of the 1950s!

In a June interview with radio host Sandy Rios, Bachmann said "It appears that there has been deep penetration in the halls of our United States government by the Muslim Brotherhood... that there are individuals who are associated with the Muslim Brotherhood who have positions, very sensitive positions, in our Department of Justice, our Department of Homeland Security, potentially even in the National Intelligence Agency."

Following that interview, Rep. Keith Ellison, a Muslim himself, said that "if [Bachmann] has sources for this type of information, she owes it to the country to reveal them to the proper authorities, but definitely not in this way... if she doesn't have this type of information, she should not be whipping up fear and hysteria about a very important manner."

But Bachmann is now naming names. Late last month, she sent letters to the Departments of Defense, Homeland Security, Justice, State, and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence raising concerns about Muslim Brotherhood infiltration.

The St. Cloud Times provides details of Bachmann's letters, which are cosigned by four other Republican Representatives:

Bachmann's letters are reminiscent of another of the upper Midwest's craziest political figures.
The letter to the State Department singles out Huma Abedin, a deputy chief of staff for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and asserts that three of Abedin's family members are connected to the Muslim Brotherhood. It says Abedin's position affords her access to Clinton, and adds that the department has "taken actions recently that have been enormously favorable to the Muslim Brotherhood and its interests."

The letter to the Department of Defense charges the U.S. Army with failing to "characterize accurately the jihadist motivations" of Major Nidal Hassan, the alleged Fort Hood shooter.

The letter to the Department of Homeland Security says the department has developed a lexicon, or official vocabulary, that obscures America's jihadist threat.

"Its approved words effectively equate those perpetrating this threat with ones said to arise from 'Christian patriots,' 'constitutionalists' and 'militia extremists,' " the letter said.

Founded in the 1920s, the Muslim Brotherhood had a violently militant element in its early years, but today, the common thread between disparate factions of the group is the desire to infuse democracy with traditional Islamic law and values. So it seems a little hypocritical of Michele to launch a campaign decrying their influence -- after all, she's been trying to infuse American democracy with Christian law and values for years.

And in the end McCarthy as right. The release of Soviet communication intercepts from the Verona Project files showed just how wide spread Soviet agents were in the US government. Agents were identified in the State Department, the Treasury, Office of Strategic Services,and even the White House. Almost every American military and diplomatic agency of any importance was compromised to some extent by Soviet espionage. The OSS alone had been infiltrated by some 15 - 20 agents.

As I said a significant number of Islamists - I didn't say all.  It just so happens the 'stupid people' (all 19 of the hijackers) were Islamists. As you know they are now tearing down archeological sites, and want to tear down the pyramids.  Seems you liberals can't engage in a conversation without name calling / insulting / snotty attitude.

Why not be concerned?  There are a significant number of Islamist who want to do harm to our country.   They are our enemy - maybe you forgot 9/11. Also, it doesn't seem any of the liberals here take offense to the 'crazy' caricaturization of Michele on the front page of this rag.

Aaron Rupar and the rest of you libtards are just jealous of Bachmann because she makes more money in one year than any of you all losers will in a lifetime.  Go ride your "green" bike and "Occupy" something while eating vegan cookies.  Fucking losers.

 @Kirk1:disqus I find it incredibly hypocritical of you to tell every to not judge someone else, yet all you are obsessively doing is insulting liberals and democrats.  Making general statements like "liberals hate conservative women and conservative minorities" only diminishes whatever point you are trying to make.

Thanks for the checklist.  Clearly I, and everyone I know, are Republicans then.  Funny how the Republican Party doesn't match up to our political and social beliefs.  We'll have to fix that in the next round of caucuses.

The United States has been nothing but a giant engine of change since the beginning.  It's why we are the strongest country.   Your point is not only stupid but shows a stunning lack of insight or even basic thinking.  You are very poorly educated and have trouble grasping not only advanced concepts but basic concepts.

@Gary Rumain "Macarthy" aka Joseph McCarthy was correct on what? The ever changing number of "red infiltrators"? The total paranoia? Blacklisting innocent actors, artists, writers and show business people? Helping future disgraced president Richard Nixon's early political career?

You, sir, are a total buffoon without a grasp of basic facts.

Everyone just seems to want to criticize each other. Can't we just have a conversation surrounding the facts without name calling and finger pointing. This is why people refuse to talk politics..

Really? They are our enemy because some stupid people may have gotten on a plane and bombed a building, so we go over and kill and rape their children, lol. Yeah, big bad tough USA, defending its self against non treats all day just to keep you stupid. And no, I am not a liberal, lol. I am just informed, get that way yourself.
