"The action I am taking is no more than a radical measure to hasten the explosion of truth and justice. I have but one passion: to enlighten those who have been kept in the dark, in the name of humanity which has suffered so much and is entitled to happiness. My fiery protest is simply the cry of my very soul. Let them dare, then, to bring me before a court of law and let the enquiry take place in broad daylight!" - Emile Zola, J'accuse! (1898) -

Michelle Bachmann Is An Embarrassment To Minnesota and Ought To Resign Today!



Radical Right -- Bachmann Calls For McCarthyite Investigation Into Anti-American Activities Of Liberals:


Email Bachmann at (info@michelebachmann.com) an let her know that you believe HER Position is Anti-American and that she ought to resign!


After right-wing Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) appeared on MSNBC’s Hardball on Friday and called for a McCarthyite investigation into the “anti-American views” of members of Congress, she has come under a withering storm of criticism. Her opponent — Democrat Elwyn Tinklenberg — has raised $640,000 since Bachmann’s comments.


This morning, Bachmann tried to undo the damage. Appearing on WCCO (Minneapolis’ local CBS affiliate), Bachmann denied she ever called Barack Obama’s views “anti-American”:


Appearing on MSNBC's Hardball on Friday afternoon, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) called for a McCarthyite investigation into Congress to see which members are "anti-America." She said she was "absolutely" concerned that Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) "may have anti-American views." She declared, "The news media should do a penetrating exposé" into the "views of the people in Congress and find out if they're pro-America or anti-America." Reaction to her comments was explosive. On Sunday morning, former Secretary of State Colin Powell explicitly denounced her comments as an example of his dissatisfaction with the tone of conservative campaigns. "We've got to stop this kind of nonsense and pull ourselves together and remember that our great strength is in our unity and in our diversity," Powell said, explaining that her comments were an example of what was "driving" him to endorse Obama. But Bachmann on Sunday tried to claim she had been misunderstood. "I'm not saying [Obama's] views are anti-American. That was a misreading of what I said. And so I don’t believe that's my position," she told a local Minneapolis CBS affiliate. Since Friday, more than 45,000 people have signed a petition calling on Congress to censure Bachmann.

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. -- Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann's comment that Barack Obama "may have anti-American views" reflects poorly on Bachmann.


Pelosi addressed the flap after an event in Bloomington on Monday for Democrat Ashwin Madia, who's running for Congress in Minnesota's 3rd District.


Bachmann is running in the 6th District against Democrat Elwyn Tinklenberg.


Pelosi says Bachmann's statement "dishonors the position that she holds and discredits her as a person."


People from around the country donated $640,000 to Tinklenberg's campaign after Bachmann's comments Friday on MSNBC's "Hardball." She later said her statement about the Democratic presidential nominee was misread.


Spokeswoman Michelle Marston says Bachmann's campaign is looking at increasing its own ad buys to counter Tinklenberg's new money.
