Bachmann’s Anti-Muslim ‘Brain’ Draws Laughs At Values Voter Summit [View all]

Frank Gaffney, president of the right-wing Center for Security Policy think tank, said at the Family Research Council Action Fund’s Values Voter Summit in Washington, D.C. on Saturday that Islam is a “brutally repressive doctrine” that is “bad for just about all human beings.”

Gaffney, the man largely credited with inspiring Republican Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann’s “witch hunt” against Muslims in government, said Islam is “brutally repressive. It’s comprehensive, totalitarian, supremacist doctrine, especially bad for women, for homosexuals, for Jews, other minority, religious faiths, well, pretty much just about for all human beings, actually.” The remark prompted laughter from a packed room.

“Not to say that all Muslims subscribe to this, but everyone of them that does is a problem, make no mistake about it,” Gaffney continued. He said that we know from looking at groups like Hamas that some Muslims are “perfectly capable of being violent,” “but for the moment, here in the United States, they’re involved in what I would call, what we describe in the book, a pre-violence state of jihad.”

Gaffney’s talk also included a projected presentation that outlined Muslims that had reached the high levels of American government that he felt were dangerous, including Huma Abedin, a senior aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and wife of former New York Rep. Anthony Weiner (D). He noted that Bachmann was “vilified” and “attacked” for questioning Abedin’s alleged affiliations Muslim Brotherhood, particularly that she was deeply tied to Abdullah Omar Naseef, a man he said is a “terrorist financier.” (Image from the presentation below.)
