Congresswoman Michele Bachmann is getting heat from establishment colleagues over her calls to look more closely into the Muslim Brotherhood and their disturbing influence and infiltration in Congress. Glenn urged people to stand with Bachmann because she is exposing a serious threat to America - it makes one wonder, why would anyone push back?
"I want to talk to you about something of the most serious nature I think I have addressed on the air in maybe a year," Glenn said as he started the show this morning.
"Do you remember when I said social justice, and get out of churches if you're involved with social justice?" he asked. "The attacks came from all quarters."
"Today the political world is in the same kind of attack mode not against me but somebody else. Michelle Bachmann. For a letter she released last week, and within minutes the attacks started coming from both sides of the aisle."
Bachmann has come under fire for comments directed at Clinton aide Huma Abedin. In a letter she co-signed, she said, " "Huma Abedin has three family members -- her late father, her mother and her brother -- connected to Muslim Brotherhood operatives and/or organizations."
Glenn said, "No one including Michelle Bachmann is saying she has been compromised. What Michelle Bachmann is asking for - as is her duty to stand and protect and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic - all she's asking is was there a proper check."
Glenn has learned that she is now facing pressure to apologize for her comments for be removed from her position on the U.S. House intelligence committee.
When the controversy first started over Bachmann's comments, she quickly explained: "Not once in the letter to the Inspector General of the Department of State, as you summarize, was it stated that “by extension, (Ms. Abedin), may be working on the organization’s behalf.”
She added, "That her family members are connected to the Muslim Brotherhood has been reported and referenced widely in the Arab-language media, including Al-Hayat, The Arab Times and Al-Jazeera."
"That does not mean that Huma has done anything wrong," Glenn explained.
Nevertheless, Glenn asked why it was so ridiculous to think that the same administration that allowed 9/11 Truther and former STORM member Van Jones to be the "green jobs czar" would fail at a background.
In the letter that Bachmann sent out, she had sixteen pages of footnoted information detailing evidence of Muslim Brotherhood infiltration into the United States government. You can read the full letter at the bottom of this article. On radio, Glenn went through some of the key arguments that Bachmann brought forth, and wondered why the media and other politicians were so quick to dismiss the entire document solely because of the Huma Abedin allegation.
"They're focusing on a process question - whether one woman went through the proper background check. It is what the left always does when they set out to destroy someone. The other claims in this letter, like for example The Muslim Brotherhood is attempting to infiltrate our US government, are supported by quotes from the Muslim Brotherhood itself," Glenn said.
"Michelle Bachmann is absolutely fearless and if they take Michele Bachmann out, they will take anyone out," Glenn said. "This is both in the Republican and Democratic parties. She is saying what she believes. She is saying at great peril to her life and her job in Washington."
"She is saying what she believes because she believes it's what is right for the country. And so do I. Without any hesitation, without any reservation. I warn you if you do not take the Muslim Brotherhood seriously and help people like Michele Bachmann stand in this battle, they will pick them off one at a time," Glenn said.
"There are very few people in Washington - more than you know, more than you would expect, less than you would hope - but there are those standing in Washington that are true to the constitution, true to the founding principles. True to themselves. Michelle Bachmann is one of them. She deserves and needs your support today. They are threatening - from the Republicans, Boehner and McCain - threatening Michele Bachmann that if she does not apologize for this letter today, she will lose her position on the intelligence committee. She is perfectly willing to have that happen. I am telling you that is a huge, huge mistake. And it is being orchestrated by those who either have their heads up someplace where their heads don't belong or they're getting marching orders from the very peaceful, very secular, nonpolitical, just sweet as pumpkin pie Muslim Brotherhood."
