Does Abe Foxman ever read a f*kcing thing? Anything at all?
“These sweeping accusations by members of Congress against American citizens who are Muslim are unfair and misguided,” Robert G. Sugarman and Abraham H. Foxman, the national chair and national director of the Anti-Defamation League, said in a statement. “Absent clear evidence of direct ties between these individuals and the Muslim Brotherhood, such allegations foment fear and cast the kind of suspicion that undermines rather than advances American counterterrorism efforts.”
For Zogby, the witch-hunt against Bachmann is not nearly enough; he wants to shut down any debate about Islam:
On orders of the Muslim Brotherhood & the OIC:
Â We must commit to changing the way we talk about Islam and the Arab World, and our nation’s Muslim and Arab communities and join Senator Scott Brown in making it clear that hate-filled personal attacks “have no place in our national discourse.”Â

Brain-dead Blitzer:Â “It was really a terrible thing to do”
McCarthy was right. Then, as now, commie infiltration made an enquiry impossible. Â Allen West is not making unproven claims either; more than 80 congresscritters are diehard commies. America needs a catharsis; a purge, both in the media and in politics.
Wolf Blitzer criticized Michele Bachmann with uncharacteristic fervor for the Republican’s attacks on Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin.
Bachmann has attracted substantial condemnation from other Republicans, includingÂ John McCainÂ and her former campaign managerÂ Ed Rollins, forsuggestingÂ that Abedin may be connected to the Muslim Brotherhood. On Thursday, Blitzer argued with Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen, who said that Bachmann’s attacks were not worth covering. It was a notably personal moment for Blitzer, who usually steers clear of hard-charging rhetoric.
“It was really a terrible thing to do,” Blitzer said.
“Michele Bachmann is irrelevant. She’s irrelevant,” Rosen replied.
“She’s not irrelevant,” Blitzer shot back. “She’s a lawmaker. She represents nearly a million people from Minnesota. What do you mean?” He called it “an outrageous McCarthy-like charge to be sure.”
Later, in a new personal commentary segment Blitzer has introduced to the show in the last few weeks, he went further.
“I have been very upset about a McCarthy-like attempt to smear one of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s closest aides, Huma Abedin, someone I have known for years,” he said. “…The insinuations are outrageous.”
He continued, “Yes, she is a Muslim. But the last time I checked, there was nothing illegal about being a Muslim in America. There are millions and millions of patriotic Muslim Americans.”
