Michelle Bachmann again has shown us that she is an oxymoron to the intelligence committee she belongs to in the House of Representatives. She and a handful of other Republican House members have been on an adventure into trying to pin the title of "Islamic Extremist Spy" on a Hillary Clinton aide, Huma Abedin. In fact, she's accusing the woman of even influencing State Dept. policy as a reason she's working for Hillary in the first place.

She may not have put all this in words but this is exactly what she is implying by her accusations. What she's saying is that the woman is somehow connected to the "Muslim Brotherhood" a group that is considered to be a terrorist organization by some.

The accusation is that Huma Abedin, a Muslim woman is somehow connected through family members and then associations of associations. It would be like if maybe someone took Michelle Bachmann's past associations and family members - just as an example of course - connected her somehow to the Ku Klux Klan by her family members or even some old friends. It would be interesting to know how she would feel about that.

We all know that the KKK is also a terrorist organization posing as a religious organization; at least they refer themselves "Christian" as though Jesus would actually have anything to do with them in the first place. I would compare that organization with Muslim terror organizations, like maybe Hezbollah or maybe the Muslim Brotherhood. If there are any real differences between the two besides believing a different religion, please tell me what it is. There definitely are some similarities, as far as being violent and feelings of superiority over others.

I am certain that if someone wanted to do a little research, they could dig up all kinds of ties in Congress - especially to one certain political party - to the KKK and organizations like that. Does Michelle Bachmann agree we should look for those kinds of ties in our Congress too? Let's not limit our search for moles just from Muslim extremist, let's also look for ties to radical Christian groups too.

Fortunately we have some more mature and responsible Republicans speaking out against Rep. Bachmann and her ilk. Senator John McCain, the 2008 Republican presidential candidate spoke out against the attacks on Huma Abedin by saying:

"…nothing less than an unwarranted and unfounded attack on an honorable woman, a dedicated American and a loyal public servant."

He spoke highly of the Clinton aide by saying:

"Huma represents what is best about America. She is the daughter of immigrants, who has risen to the highest levels of our government on the basis of her substantial personal merit and her abiding commitment to the American ideals that she embodies so fully."

Many are calling the conspiracy charges brought by Rep. Michelle Bachmann and four other members of Congress, a playback to the old McCarthyism days when Senator Joe McCarthy went on a hunting expedition for communist party members who he claimed were attempting to take over the country. He ruined a lot of reputations with his baseless accusations and harmed a lot of people's lives.

Huma Abedin has already received threats and has been given extra security because of the accusations. I do know if something happens to that woman, Bachmann and company would be at least partially responsible.

I do believe Minnesota needs to wake up this next election and send Michelle Bachmann packing. We don't need people in our Congress like her, spreading hate and decisiveness and baseless accusations.

These accusations from Mrs. Bachmann and the other representatives are just an attempt to paint the Obama Administration as being anti-American and connected to Muslim extremist somehow. Michelle Bachmann should realize one thing about Obama and his White House; Muslim terrorist hide in terror of a drone that might drop death from above or a SEAL team that may wake them in the middle of the night wherever they sleep and send them to the paradise they so much believe in. This is all thanks to the policies of the Obama Administration.

And to even think that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton could be unduly influenced by her aide is entirely ridiculous, as anyone who knows anything about that strong-willed woman. Fortunately, the former First Lady, Senator from New York and presidential candidate, doesn't have as befuddled of a brain as Rep. Bachmann, which we're all very thankful for.

Minnesota voters - do us all a favor and bring Michelle Bachmann back home this November.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
