If I didn't know about Ron Paul's far right and neo-Confederate connections, and his history of blatantly racist newsletters, and everything else about him, I'd probably be giving him kudos right now for telling the unvarnished truth about Michele Bachmann (and most of the rest of the GOP field too, for that matter): Ron Paul Takes Swipes at GOP Rivals, Says Michele Bachmann 'Hates Muslims'.
Appearing on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” Friday, the presidential hopeful took a swipe at his GOP rivals telling the crowd that Michele Bachmann “hates Muslims.”
When asked by host Jay Leno what he thought of his rivals, Paul shook his head, slowed his voice and said, “she doesn’t like Muslims, she hates them, she wants to go get ‘em” — in reference to the comments Bachmann has made on the campaign trail over her willingness to attack Iran over its suspected nuclear program.
One of Michele Bachmann's policy advisers is Frank "Shariah Panic" Gaffney, who is about one degree of separation from anti-Muslim hate group leader Pamela Geller, so this is not an unfounded conclusion.
Bachmann, of course, is outraged that anyone would notice these things.
Bachmann, who is campaigning today in Iowa, rejected Paul’s comments.
“Of course I don’t hate Muslims,” Bachmann told ABC News adding “that’s an absolutely outrageous statement.”
No, it really isn't.
