Michelle Bachmann has accused Hillary Clinton of having ties to the Muslim Brotherhood because one of her long time aid, Huma Abedin is a Muslim. Others in the far right also “accuse” President Obama of being a Muslim, simply because his father happened to be Muslim.
Hard to believe that this country was founded on the principle of religious freedom. The Tea party and the far right build their campaign on hatred. Huma Abedin, the Hillary Clinton aid was born of Muslim parents. her father was from India, and her mother was from Pakistan, before the two countries were separated. They both have their PhDs from U Penn, an Institution which Ms. Bachmann will never get into.
Meanwhile Sheriff Joe Arpaio has been accused of racial profiling in Arizona. And Scalia has stated slavery as a precedent for having individual states control federal immigration law.
I guess there has always been a segment of society, who has hated other people. And most often they are fueled by religion. Every religion, in order to propagate their views has to state that they are the only religion. And then they base their platform on hatred, whether its for gays, or Muslims or whoever is weak, in order to gain support for their cause. And thus the religious people, in the guise of being pious, continue their culture of hatred, shaking the very foundation of America.
