Glenn Beck: Michele Bachmann Under Investigation Because She’s Against Radical Islam

American Broadcaster Glenn Beck Hosts Rally At Jerusalem's Western Wall

The founder of rightwing portal Blaze.com and full time apocalyptic nativist Glenn Beck still peddling “Radical Islam” take over of America conspiracy theories to sheeple.

Glenn Beck: Michele Bachmann Under Investigation Because She’s Against Radical Islam

Glenn Beck suggested Tuesday that the ethics investigation into the erstwhile presidential campaign of Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) is retribution for the congresswoman’s outspoken crusade against what she has called the threat of radical Islam.

“We have been sold to radical Islam,” Beck said matter-of-factly on his Internet show. “It has infiltrated and we have documented it.”

Beck continued, claiming that radical Islam is so powerful it affected the nonpartisan Office of Congressional Ethics, which, according to a Daily Beast report, is questioning former Bachmann staffers regarding “allegations of improper transfer of funds and under-the-table payments actions by Bachmann’s presidential campaign.”

“You see what they’re doing to Michele Bachmann?” Beck asked. “Michele Bachmann is under all kinds of ethics investigations now. Why do you suppose that is? … She is uber-clear on what’s going on. Uber-clear.”

Bachmann drew widespread criticism last year for spearheading a campaign alleging that high-profile aides in President Barack Obama’s administration had ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. Other Republican representatives and conservative pundits,including Beck, backed the discredited claims.

But Beck suggested there were other reasons for a supposed radical Islamic-linked backlash against Bachmann. According to him, she’d demonstrated her clarity on what was “going on” because she’d asked the State Department for answers on why it was sending Somali refugees to her district.

“She hasn’t gotten any answers and now she’s under investigation,” Beck concluded.

Beck is right about one thing. Many Somalis do live in Minnesota — more than 32,000according to census data. But the State Department’s decision to select Minnesota and Bachmann’s district as a destination for Somali refugees far predates the controversial congresswoman’s entrance into politics.

It began in the early 1990s, when civil war broke out in Somalia, forcing refugees to flee to neighboring countries. Many eventually ended up in the U.S., and the State Department sent them to Minnesota, confident that the region’s voluntary agencies, or VOLAGS — groups that partner with the federal government — could provide a strong infrastructure for their resettlement.

As Minnesota’s WCCO reported in 2011:

But the Somalis have largely stayed, somewhere around 30,000 of them, partially because of the strength of the non-governmental VOLAGS, and partially because of the strength of governmental programs to help refugees begin a new life …After the first wave is assigned here, the second wave of relatives and friends soon followed.

 

What any of this has to do with the mounting investigations and legal problems Bachmann now faces, only Beck knows.

    That’s a real cute one. Also, knickers is a word I don’t hear in America. I know it is British. It is also a common term in Pakistan.

    “Hopefully we’re closer to the end of our anti Muslim panic in the west, than we are to the beginning”

    Oh my dear gentled-soul brother, I wished I had your optimism! Heck, I think if even less than 1% (or even lesser-lesser than that ) of this world ever had that sort of optimism? humankind in the first place would never have found themselves in any major mess or crisis, like that-of we’re in today. Where always the weakly equipped among us is picked-upon and targeted and abused or simply murdered. And where the strong of the moment (or day) exploit them by any means, even as far as contemplating (or dreaming-of) what their annihilation from the mother earth could bring (as beneficial pocked-budget, a.k.a arms deals). Today is about “the Muslims”, but yesterday was about a different group, and most certainly they will be yet another that’ll replace the Muslims as the perfect target for the ‘menu du jour’ from whatever days ahead for mankind, ti’ll maybe our species is replaced by another, or maybe t’ill ‘life’ itself vanished forever, BY our own hands, no Allah aka God’ intervention needed here, as Godly “doomsday” wouldn’t be necessary.

    My problem with Beck always was that I never understood what he was trying to say. His statements often had no logical links with one another.

    You cannot clone from their brain cells.There are no viable ones.

  • Leftwing_Muslim_Alliance

    Ok but there is still the possibility of cloning . I know it may result in brain damage but how could you tell ? These two are so far off the map, reality has no meaning for them .
    Sir David

  • hopefully fewer and fewer people will listen to them as time goes on. For society as a whole, It wouldn’t matter too much if they were to reproduce, as long as no one takes them seriously. Hopefully we’re closer to the end of our anti Muslim panic in the west, than we are to the beginning.

    Luckily, I believe they are too old to breed with each other.
