    Censure Bachmann Petition

    Your email and others would be important additions to this.

    I will be writing as well.

    Write to your OWN congressperson expressing dismay that the slanderous innuendos put forth by her are  unbefitting of a sitting Congressperson and echoes an ugly chapter in our history that should not be re-visited.

      Dear Congress:

      I was shocked and appalled at the positions stated by Michele Bachmann on Hardball with Chris Matthews on Friday evening, October 17.

      For a sitting member of Congress to slander Americans as anti-American because their beliefs do not match her own is bad enough. Our country is founded on the premise that speech is a protected right of ALL Americans and diversity and discussion of opposing philosophies is not only possible but necessary for a strong democracy.

      But when Bachmann goes further and advocates for investigations into people's Americanism - well that smacks of McCarthyism in its worst form. Innuendo, lies, slanders that there are anti-Americans in Congress (and by extension throughout America) and and then linking any possible "un-Americanism" to liberalism and left-minded people is UNACCEPTABLE in the 21st pluralistic USA.

      I ask that you censure Michele Bachmann and assure the American people that having a different vision of a strong America does NOT mean you are anti-American. Americans should not be feel threatened  for expressing their views and taking actions  for fear "investigations" that could  lead to the limiting of political freedoms and the right to participate in our government.
