Bachmann Shares Another Wild Conspiracy Theory About Obama, Clinton, U.N.
Michele Bachmann stopped by Jan Markell’s extremist right-wing radio show this weekend to share her latest unhinged conspiracy theory: that President Barack Obama is attempting to impose Sharia law in the United States, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton wants to override the First Amendment through a U.N. treaty.
Right Wing Watch has audio of the interview, which really must be heard to be believed.
Bachmann began by warning that “President Obama, if you look at nearly every decision he has made about this issue, it is to lift up the Islamists and to take down Israel,” before claiming that Obama has enacted “Islamic speech codes” in the United States to shut down any and all criticism of the religion...
Putting those facts aside, however, how does Bachmann think that Obama could get away with such a blatant violation of the First Amendment? As with most right-wing conspiracies, the shocking answer lies in the United Nations.
Ignoring the fact that the U.N .Resolution in question does not limit free speech at all, Bachmann goes on to say, “Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, she helped to formulate and write and pass UN Resolution 16/18, which calls for the criminalization — anti-free speech measures,” Bachmann says. “She’s already signed this. While a UN resolution doesn’t bind United States law, how in the world could the president allow the Secretary of State to sign a resolution that indicates that we are willing to take away the free speech rights of the American people?”
Another crazy conspiracy theory from the chief of crazy right wing conspiracy theories and another one involving the UN.
We have learned that we cannot live alone, at peace; that our own well-being is dependent on the well-being of other nations far away. ... We have learned to be citizens of the world, members of the human community. ... We shall strive for perfection. ... We may make mistakes, but they must never be mistakes which result from faintness of heart or abandonment of moral principle.

1. She was saying that in 2009 too
I mean - I realizes it is re-districting and that's why she's set for life as a Congress mouthpiece - but I'm more concerned about the people that voted for her (sure thing or not) than I am her.
This is nothing new - and every single one of them ought to be ashamed of themselves.
She's TRYING to gin up hatred to the President - if he gets hurt -or his family gets hurt by her hateful vile speech -
May she die and rot.
