Recent attacks prove Bachmann wrong on rightwing extremists

Recent attacks prove Bachmann wrong on rightwing extremists

Just a couple months ago, Michele Bachmann took the House floor to rage against a new report warning against domestic rightwing terrorists.

But the recent assassination of late-term abortion provider George Tiller, and today's shooting at the Holocaust museum by an 88-year-old white supremacist, seem to suggest that she was stunningly, dangerously wrong.

"The Homeland Security secretary has redefined pro-life, gun-owning veterans, who like smaller government, and who believe America should secure our borders against invasion from illegal aliens, are labeled the domestic rightwing extremists," Bachmann blustered.

One look at the website of the alleged Holocaust Museum shooter and you can see that he's a perfect match for Bachmann's description of who Homeland Security shouldn't be worried about.
