Even though Michele Bachmann hasn’t been on the frontlines of foreign policy criticism of late, she has made herself ISIS’s Congressional target numero uno. Apparently, ISIS recently released a video that featured the Congresswoman’s voice but blurred out her image, probably because an unveiled woman in a pantsuit being allowed to speak on important issues is just a teensy bit too much for their masculinity to handle.
Rep. Michele Bachmann has been provided with a “limited” protection detail after a picture of her appeared in a video by the Islamic State, a source confirmed to Fox News.
However, the source said, the temporary protection from the U.S. Capitol Police is not a full-blown, around-the-clock detail as is provided to top congressional leaders. According to the source, this sort of temporary detail is provided at times to members of Congress if there is a reasonable threat to their safety.
The protection detail was first reported by Politico.
In the video, Bachmann is heard speaking about the rise of radical Islam at the Values Voter Summit last month. She says that ISIS has declared war on the United States and the United States should declare war in return. ISIS, exhibiting a complete lack of understanding of our political leaders, seems to have immediately taken Congresswoman Bachmann at her word, not realizing no one’s paid much attention to her since the mid-1990s.
