Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) answered the challenge to provide proof of the Muslim Brotherhood's "penetration" of our goverment. Now that her accusations are seeing the light of day, they are like the rest of her conspiracy theories - spurious.
She is the modern day Joe McCarthy. Unlike Tailgunner Joe, she has no shame. You may all recall (or need to consult history books), that McCarthy resigned after his lies fell apart. Bachmann couldn't care less. Her lies and conspiracy theories have consistently fallen apart. She is a unrepentant and chronic liar who never faces consequences for her lies.
Rep. Keith Ellison (DFL-MN) appeared on CNN to discuss her conspiracy theory with Anderson Cooper.
Ellison: I have no doubt that it is simply scaremongering. I think it has a long historic root and we've seen this kind of thing before. We need to stand up to it every time it rears its head. When Edward R. Murrow challenged Joe McCarthy he wasn't standing up for communism, he was standing up for American values. I'm not standing up for any particular religious group, I'm standing up for American's to have freedom of thought in America today. And that simply being a member of a religious group does not make you radioactive.
He appeared on the Full Press Show with Bill Press on Current TV.
