• Islamophobia Proves to Be Big Moneymaker for Michele Bachmann

    Michele Bachmann suspends her campaignWho would have guessed that making crazy accusations about Muslims could be so profitable. And in America?!

    Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) said she's raised $1 million this month.

    The big July fundraising number follows a controversy, in which she insinuated that the government had become compromised by agents of the Muslim Brotherhood. She specifically named Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) and State Department aide Huma Abedin.

    Between her husband Marcus making a career out of preying on self-hating gay people and the congresswoman herself pulling in the big bucks by stirring up distrust and anger against against Muslims, it would seem as though the Bachmanns have really hit upon a winning strategy.

    I can't wait to find out which subjugated minority groups' misery they're going to exploit for their own personal gain next. But heart says victims of wild animal attacks, but head says accused witches.
