I'm sure Michelle Bachmann was hoping that her apology for seeming a little overly McCarthylike the other day would put all the controversy surrounding her remarks to rest so that she could maybe get that party funding back.
Ah, but once the spotlight comes on ...
The Uptake at Huffpo has the video and transcript of her remarks at a primary debate in Minneapolis earlier this year in which she lets the ol' xenophobia out of the bag:
There is a movement afoot that's occurring and part of that is whole philosophical idea of multi-cultural diversity, which on the face sounds wonderful. Let's appreciate and value everyone's cultures. But guess what? Not all cultures are equal. Not all values are equal.
And one thing that we're seeing is that in the midst of this violence that's being encouraged by al Jazeera and by the jihadists that's occurring, is that we are seeing that those who are coming into France -- which had a beautiful culture -- the French culture is actually diminished. It's going away. And just with the population of France they are losing Western Europeans and it's being taken over by muh...by a Muslim ethic. Not that Muslims are bad. But they are not assimilating.
Hmmm. My guess is that she was staying up late reading Mark Steyn.
