Right-Wing Extremist Congresswoman Denounces Attacks Against Right-Wing Extremists

The recent Department of Homeland Security report, which attracted so much criticism on the right for its warnings about domestic right-wing extremists, has another big-time detractor: Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN).

Bachmann took to the House floor on Wednesday night, delivering an impassioned speech about the government tagging decent Americans as extremists for being pro-life, pro-gun rights and anti-illegal immigration — and asking whether Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano has gone “absolutely stark raving mad”:

There’s no doubt that Bachmann has a genuine stake in this argument. For one thing, she is staunchly pro-life. She is also in favor of gun rights, and wants to secure the borders. Oh, and she’s called for revolution against President Obama’s tyranny and Marxism.
