James Sensenbrenner the latest Congressman to attack Bachmann

Count Rep. James Sensenbrenner (R-WI) as being among the most irresponsible Republicans in Congress when it comes to refusing to lend credence to Rep. Michele Bachmann's warnings about the background of Hillary Clinton's Deputy Chief of Staff Huma Abedin. The others include John McCain, Scott Brown, Marco Rubio, and John Boehner.

Via JS Online:
In a town hall meeting Sunday, U.S. Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wisconsin) offered a vigorous defense of Hillary Clinton aide and Muslim Huma Abedin and the First Amendment after a constituent echoed U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann's suspicions that Abedin has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Said Sensenbrenner: "The First Amendment prohibits the government from making a distinction between what is 'good religion' and what is 'bad religion.' That’s none of the government’s business. Religion is a personal issue to every one of the people who lives in the United States, whether you practice a faith, how you practice a faith, whether you don’t practice a faith, whether you say you’re a member of a faith but don’t practice it, it’s none of the government’s business."
Mr. Sensenbrenner's decision to invoke the First Amendment is either ignorant or disingenuous on his part. Islam is not just a religion; it is a political system, which is why matters relative to Islam do not apply to the First Amendment; they apply to Article VI, which states:
This Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land;
If Mr. Sensenbrenner were either educated or honest, he would admit publicly that Islam seeks to be the supreme law of the land in whatever land it's in.

Here is video of Sensenbrenner at the Town Hall:

Incidentally, I was interviewed by Mark Halvorson on WOGO in Chippewa Falls, WI yesterday about Sensenbrenner's position. This morning, Halvorson had Senator Ron Johnson on the program and played a portion of my interview to get Johnson's reaction. Halvorson played a clip of Johnson's response and let's just say that if one could personify the word "punt," he made it blush and tried to re-direct attention and focus to the economy exclusively without taking a real position.

Michele Bachmann has more guts than these men.
