Over the past couple months, Michele Bachmann has solidified her standing as Congress' leading anti-Islam crusader.

She again upped the ante during a speech this morning at the Values Voter Summit in Washington, where she accused Obama of ordering that U.S. security agencies "be brainwashed in political correctness toward Islam."

"That's enforced Islamic speech codes here in the United States," she said.

Bachmann then said Obama's friendliness toward Islam has prevented America from acting on Sun Tzu's advice: "If you know your enemy and you know yourself, you will not fear 100 battles."

Here's a transcript of part of Bachmann's speech, followed by the raw footage:
Last October, many prominent Islamic organizations wrote a letter to the White House where they urged our White House to do a complete purge of any federal training material from references to the ideology of Islam, to ensure that all trainers in our U.S. military, our FBI, and other U.S. security agencies, be retrained so they would be brainwashed in political correctness toward Islam. That's enforced Islamic speech codes here in the United States, and all done with the help of our President and Secretary of State...

... And as we consider our way forward we should remember the voices of history. Don't forget Sun Tzu who famously said, 'If you know your enemy and you know yourself, you will not fear 100 battles.' But the fact is that this administration has virtually outlawed understanding who the enemy is, and at every turn, the enemy-the President seems insistent on apologizing for who we are as Americans. (applause)


Bachmann wasn't done there. She called Obama "the most dangerous American president we have ever had on foreign policy," saying the embassy protests and attacks taking place this week throughout the Islamic world are "direct consequences of this administration's policy of apology and appeasement throughout the globe."

America is "losing our ability to identify our radical Islamist enemy," she continued, adding that we need to "draw an unmistakable red line for our enemies across the world."

Can you imagine this woman running for president on the GOP ticket in the midst of this week's scary and disturbing embassy attacks?

She makes a lot of sense. Too bad the loons on the left won't listen.

" The first thing people ask me when I tell them I'm from Minnesota is do you know Michelle Bachman. God, how embarassing..." I'm sure people from Hawaii feel the same way...

Normally I don't 'hate' people but this woman is a definite exception for me. There is no good in this woman, she is evil, vile, a liar, and she's dangerous too. I hate her.

Islam is a religion of peace and tolerance. The only reason that Muslim mobs are rioting and attacking U.S. embassies is because they still think George Bush - that quintessential islamophobe - is president. It's not just the economy, stupid, everything is Bush's fault. Did you know that he traveled back in time in the First DeLorean and started the crusades, so that 900 years latter, otherwise peaceful Muslims would riot on Obama's watch, so that it would make Obama look bad to the U.S. electorate, and further Mitt Romney's chances of being elected president?

So much of what you said Shame is either inaccurate or just flat out lies, that it doesn't even seem worth refuting... Plus, I know what disdain you GOP loonies have for facts.

The most amazing thing to me is that anyone takes this woman seriously anymore. Maybe if we all stop listening to her, she will just go away . Yeah i know but , I can dream.

Shane, while I agree with you, this is probably not the best place to post that. The lemmings here will jump all over you.

Those good ole GOP war drums are starting to beat again, ever so quietly at first.  Now that this wacko is starting to beat her hate-driven war drum the pace should pick up.  THIS is what the GOP is ALL about now, eliminating ALL OTHERS in the world who do not hold THEIR world views.  Well, if you ask me, they, along with Bachmann, are the true enemies of the United States because their hatred and bigotry and "beat their chests" pride in espousing it ,is what is going to get us into exactly what they want......ANOTHER WAR, only this time fueled by hate instead of greed and desire for oil.

stop giving this lunatic a platform, we all get it, she says stupid things. is this information or entertainment? I know the City Pages is hurting for pageviews but seriously, maybe this dreck is why this publication is on its way out. I know Zubaz and Michelle Bachmann are fun to talk about but maybe cover something worth a god damn?

 @qbawb1 That's what the GOP is all about, How long has your head been stuck up your ass that you haven't heard the muslims saying"death to america".  Find one video of a prominent republican saying, death to muslims.  Just one and I will forever agree with the liberal frame of mind.  Most republicans want the same peace the democrats want, let's get out and leave them to destroy themselves!

 @ALFRANKIN I guess you haven't been listening very closely to the GOP candidate and his "big bully man" stance that he thinks the U.S. should take all around the globe.  Or have you not seen John McCain speaking recently about how we shouldn't leave Afghanistan and how terrible it was that we left Iraq?

 

Then take all the "bully man" talk about not letting Iran become "nuclear."   With the biggest drums around that story being beaten by Republicans.  

 

But NO, they are 'Peace Loving."  LOL

 @ALFRANKIN "The United States should dominate the world.  I know the previous poster didn't really say anything about me, Mitt Romney, advocating for world domination but I in fact I did dude.  Now let's go fire someone."   -Mitt Romney 08/23/2012.  There is your quote dumbass.  You know Republicans are the pro dumb war party so instead of actually talking about facts you throw up this straw man arguments about world domination.   One of the many reasons no one sane will vote Republican is because they are both pro war and terrible at fighting wars.   The NeoCon wing wants a war with Iran because then the defense contracters make billions.  Nothing you Ron Paul idiots say changes that fact.  Ron Paul is just a con artist who convinces his stupid sheep followers to stay in the Republican Party despite not getting any respect for their views.   The power grab at the RNC just shows what a bunch of cowards and losers the Ron Paul people are.  Occupy Wall Street doesn't take that shit from the Democrats, that's why they have little to do with the party.  Ron Paul is just a pied piper tricking stupid low information voters into voting for corporately bought and paid for poiticians like Rand Paul.  Ron Paul has been a con artist his whole life with no true core beliefs, that's why he published the racist newsletters to make a quick buck.   If he was really a leader he would have left the Republican Party and ran as a 3rd party canidate.  You idiot Ron Paul supporters cost the Republicans Texas and they will listen to you next time around.  Now they know they can treat you like the scum you are and you will still vote for Mittens.  Pathetic.

Give me the quote from romney advocating world domination.  Besides, if you watched the RNC you would know most republicans are against the war, or did you not see the turmoil happening on the convention floor.
