Another prime example of the dangers of inflammatory, baseless accusations and neo McCarthyism. In case you hadn't already heard of this story, Michelle Bachmann and 3 other GOP House Members have accused Huma Abedin, Hilary Clinton aide and Wife of former congressman Anthony Weiner, of having ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. Keep in mind, there is no substantial evidence to this claim, Bachmann has stated that Abedin's late Father and Mother were involved in the Muslim Brotherhood (and 'Sisterhood'), but she can't "prove it" because those bastards in government won't let her access personal files.
I think Jon Stewart summed it up best:
"Oh my god, it's the perfect cover! An America-hating, Muslim extremist gets a high-profile, stringent background-check job with a former First Lady, marries a pro-Israel Jewish guy and begins producing Muslim-Zionist terror baby armies. Has 9/11 taught us nothing, people?"
Huma Abedin, an aide to Hillary Clinton whose targeting by Michele Bachmann in a State Department letter caused a national firestorm last week, is being given security after a Muslim New Jersey man threatened her, according to the New York Post.
The Post reports that police and federal officials are giving Abedin adequate security after the incident. The man was questioned by both the NYPD and the State Department, but has so far not actually been charged with anything.
Last week, Senator John McCain spoke in the Senate chamber in defense of Abedin against the letter Bachmann and four other members of Congress sent to the State Department, in which they accused Abedin of having ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. Other Republicans, including former Bachmann staffers, were quick to denounce the attacks.
