It was just a matter of time before Michele Bachmann found her way back to the spotlight after a presidential bid that won the stage, if not the ballot box, with a steady parade of outlandish claims, goofy gaffes and extreme rhetoric that even startled a few of her fellow right wingers.
Now she is trying to channel Joe McCarthy.
Bachmann’s crusade against what she perceives as dangerous Muslims infiltrating American society recalls the fear of Communists in the 1950’s, but with a big difference. McCarthy and his gang had a huge chunk of the country convinced for a long time. But Bachmann is already the joke that McCarthy became in the end.
Minneapolis Star Tribune:
Bachmann’s Attacks on Muslims Drawing Bipartisan Rebukes
“Bachmann’s public campaign against radical Islamic influence in American life has been building for weeks, starting with a series of letters to oversight agencies at five federal departments. In them, she requested formal investigations into what she says are “influence operations” by the Muslim Brotherhood, an Islamic political organization.” — Star Tribune
