Yesterday, I posted Michele Bachmann’s solid, pro-Israel videos, but something was bothering me about her campaign, and I couldn’t remember what it was. Now, I do. It’s not something. It’s someone: Ed Rollins, who has made a practice of traveling to Muslim-dominated Dearbornistan, Michigan to give Muslims advice on how to gain political power.
Michele Bachmann’s Pan-Muslim Campaign Strategist, Ed Rollins
While I’m sure Bachmann’s well-informed views on Israel are sincere and heartfelt, she cannot expect supporters and would-be supporters to ignore the inconsistency between those views and paying Ed Rollins on as her chief campaign strategist. Not unless she wants to appear like a phony. I still like her, but she’s gotta get rid of this guy.
As I’ve noted on this site, Ed Rollins has repeatedly appeared at Muslim political activism conferences in Dearbornistan, sponsored by the openly pro-HAMAS/Hezbollah Arab American Institute (headed by James Zogby). Consistently, Rollins and Ron Paul are the only Republicans and so-called conservatives who show up. The rest know better, and so does Rollins.
Rollins spoke to the mostly Muslim crowd in 2007, when the event was sponsored by La Shish, the Hezbollah restaurant, whose then-owner Talal Chahine had been indicted for laundering over $21 million to Hezbollah and continues to be a fugitive in Lebanon. At the time, Chahine had already been indicted, escaped to Lebanon, and kept operating his restaurants from there (because the non-serious feds refused to freeze his assets and/or shut down the restaurant). It was not only a national story, but an international one. Ed Rollins knew the crowd to whom he was speaking. Zogby and his AAI are not unknowns and remain tight with Frau Helen “Jews Go Back to Nazi Europe” Thomas.
So, why doesn’t this bother Michele Bachmann? If she doesn’t know this, why didn’t she do her homework? I’ve raised this issue, when Mike Hucksterbee ran in 2008, and Rollins was his campaign manager then. And it’s no less of an issue now. In fact, it’s more of one. Does she really want the guy who’s helping the enemies of America from within take over electorally, running her campaign, too?
While Rollins is a brilliant campaign strategist, he wasn’t brilliant enough to say no to the mostly extremist Muslim crowd that paid him to speak to them in Dearbornistan and hear how to democratically take over. I urge all of you who support Michele Bachmann to tell her to either get Ed Rollins to openliy and loudly disassociate himself with these Muslim extremists . . . or she should disassociate herself with Ed Rollins.
