The left loves Alinsky attacks and they are very good at it. Their latest target is Tea Party Congressman Michele Bachmann. They have members of the Party of Treason attacking Bachmann but now they are getting Republicans to do the same.
Why are some Republicans being so stupid?
There are some things that have no known limits. Human stupidity is one and the universe is another. The universe has limits but we aren’t sure about human stupidity.
That is the only explanation for why Republicans have jumped onto the left wing Alinsky attacks on Bachmann.
If you do not understand Alinsky attacks, they come from his book Rules for Radicals. Rule 12 of Alinsky’s rules is, “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. (This is cruel, but very effective. Direct, personalized criticism and ridicule works.)”
This is what is happening to Michele Bachmann.
On June 13, 2012, Michele Bachmann, Louis Gohmert, Trent Franks, Thomas Rooney and Lynn Westmoreland all sent a letter addressing the concerns about the Muslim Brotherhood.
In the letter to the Inspector General of the State Department, where Huma Abedin’s name is mentioned in passing, Bachmann talks about how Tariq Ramadan, a noted terrorist and high ranking member of the Muslim Brotherhood was allowed into the United States. Previous administrations had refused to allow him or other high-ranking members of the Muslim Brotherhood into this nation. The Bachmann letter also points out that our government cleared the way for the transfer of $170 million in foreign aid to Hamas and Fatah!
Instead of talking about millions of our tax dollars going to terrorist organizations, the left has turned this around to make the narrative that Michele Bachmann is questioning the patriotism of Huma Abedin.
The left wants to portray Huma Abedin as a hard working mother who happens to be an immigrant and who works for Hillary Clinton.
She is not someone who “just happens” to work for Hillary Clinton. She was Clinton’s “body woman” in the 2008 election. For those not familiar with that term, it is a political term for the person in a campaign to takes care of any problems and gets anything the candidate needs.
Hillary Clinton is one of the most ruthless politicians in the Party of Treason and her top assistant did not simply get to her position by accident.
The Alinsky methods are on full display here. They picked their target, Michele Bachmann, even though she is only one of five members to sign this letter. They froze Bachmann by changing the narrative so that she had to answer the charges against her. They have personalized it by making Huma Abedin seem like a victim and finally they are isolating Bachmann.
Even Republicans are going after her.
John Boehner quickly hauled out his freshly laundered white flag of surrender when the media asked him about it. He called what Bachmann was doing dangerous and then admitted he had not read the letter.
What the hell? Well, I’m not surprised. He doesn’t read the bills he puts in front of Congress to be passed so why should he be bothered to read a letter?
Other Republicans have been jumping on this bandwagon too.
This is a crucial fight that we must win.
The Muslim Brotherhood is a terrorist organization that wants to impose a worldwide Islamic government. They want the world to look like Iran. If they are able to beat Michele Bachmann in this battle, who will be the next Congressman to stand up to them?
Courage is in very short supply on Capitol Hill. Michele Bachmann is one of very few Congressmen with courage.
We must help.
Tomorrow morning, call your Congressman. Tell them you stand with Michele Bachmann and you want your Congressman to stand with Michele Bachmann. Tell them this story is not about Huma Abedin. The story is about how the Obama Regime is falling all over itself to appease Islamic Terrorists.
This story is about the Muslim Brotherhood. This is the same group that is a terrorist group whose goal is the overthrow of the American Republic and seeing an Islamic theocracy replace the American government.
The threat is real and we must turn the narrative of this story or we will see one of the most effective and courageous Congressmen defeated. In this battle, if Michele Bachmann loses, we all lose.
This attack on Michelle Bachmann is a perfect place to make a stand against the "Alinsky like" attacks that are threatening to undermine our nation...please respond to this as Judson suggests..I am! Boehner, McCain and now Rubio have fallen "in line" and we need to try to wake them up in regard to the slams against Michelle Bachmann. Sure, their RINO way of thinkng will not be altered...but we need them to be aware that their actions toward her are not going unnoticed!
AMEN! Michelle Bachmann is our 'Knight in Shining Armor' and we must make that stand... one thing bothers me though, why isn't Col. Allen West a part of this entourage of knights. After all he was the first to hound on the Muslim Brotherhood and yet he's suddenly quiet. That is bothering me. He should be with them all.
The “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it". did the same to Herman Cain, and all of the other fine conservative Presidential candidates. One at a time.
And of cource the best "non-candidate", Sarah Palin!
This is about what I expected from Boehner and the others that have voiced negative opinions. That is the problem with our country. No one has a backbone to stand up to obama. He is the reason for this muslim takeover is getting everything it wants. I can't believe that women especially don't go after this. Do they not know how they will be treated if the muslims take over this country. I am so tired of all these career politicians that won't stand up for their counterparts and the people of this country.
The mainstream media is losing readership and viewship. MSNBC, CNN and the radical propaganda "news papers" are all in decline. Even Fox corporate media shows are in decline. Many people are beginning to realize that these people are just the tools of the extreme hard left. I do not believe that they will influence Michelle Bachmanns re-election efforts. What will influence it, is the millions of George Soros hate money going into her opponents campaign.
I will agree with Judson in that the Republican establishment has left her out to dry. Why? Judson said it best. Gross Stupidity.
Thanks for the support of Bachmann with this topic, Judson. Just like Palin, she has been a target of the progressives from the beginning of her political career because she is an educated, religious, and conservative woman that threatens their nonsensical claim of having a monopoly on advocating "women's rights."
Any political figures that claim to be conservative by Constitutional standards and yet continue to attack real conservatives instead of the progressives of both parties need to be loudly called out as either complicitly against, or ignorant of, the true principles of the founding fathers.
The United Kingdom is finally coming out with the Muslim attacks and rapes of women and children. It is probably happening here now. But guess what, nobody wants to offend them. I say B---S---!
WND article here: http://www.wnd.com/2012/07/finally-muslim-rape-epidemic-in-spotlight/
Michele Bachmann, if you think about it, is also fighting for the lives of persons caught up in homosexuality, because if and when Sharia Law becomes law of the land, those persons will be the first in line to be executed
Sent an email to Speaker Boehner's office asking why he was joining with the Democrats in their efforts to defeat Rep. Bachmann, and calling into question the Speaker's judgement. Somehow doubt I'll get any meaningful reply.
Don't forget the [dis-] Honorable John McCain (Rino-AZ)! was right in there w Boehner!
Good luck on that.................There is meaningful in DC..........
