Bachmann Compares Letter From Muslim Advocacy Group To Hitler’s Manifesto

By Annie-Rose Strasser on Dec 11, 2012, ThinkProgress

On a conservative radio program over the weekend, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) went on an anti-Muslim tirade, making accusations about Muslims that ranged from the offensive to the absurd. Within her long conversation with host Jan Markell and co-host Eric Barger, Bachmann suggested that Americans read Islamic study materials to learn about Muslims’ supposed plot to conquer Western civilization, comparing the tactic to reading Adolf Hitler’s infamous book, Mein Kampf.

During the interview, Bachmann said she had proof that there was creeping sharia law — or, Islamic law — infiltrating the United States. That proof? A letter signed by groups of Muslim-Americans asking the Department of Homeland Security to stop distributing anti-Muslim materials:

BACHMANN: That’s right. That’s why we need to know what their belief system is; we need to know what they truly believe. That’s why the most important thing a person could do in WWII was to read the book that the leader of Germany wrote.

BARGER: Mein Kampf.

BACHMANN: Because he laid out very clearly what his intention was, he wasn’t hiding it, the Islamist does the same thing. They do not hide it, they lay it out very clearly. But what we’ve never seen before is the United States aiding and abetting that goal.

Listen:

Bachmann’s Islamophobia has been an important part of her congressional repertoire. Most recently, Bachmann lost a lot of favor among her congressional colleagues when she led the witch hunt of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s aide, Huma Abedin, with accusations that Abedin was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood.

  1. She has proven herself to be very backwards and politically incompetent over and over again. It’s about time everyone just stops listening to her altogether.

  2. She has proven herself to be very backwards and politically incompetent over and over again. It’s about time everyone just stops listening to her altogether. SO SO TRUE

  3. Bachman is exactly right. The Muslim Brotherhood document “An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America” is a prime example. The document lays out the MB goal; they hide nothing. Web sites like this that attempt to sugarcoat the brutal truth with their “Islamophobia” claims are just as dangerous.
