U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann is reiterating her concerns that the federal government is contributing to the spread of Islamic law. The Pioneer Press reports Bachmann told a conservative radio show the Obama administration put a stop to the distribution of anti-Muslim materials after Islamic groups complained.
Bachmann maintains Muslim adherents to Sharia law are trying to stifle dissent as part of a plot to take over Western culture. She compared the tactic to the doctrine espoused by Adolph Hitler in his book Mein Kampf.
Bachmann spoke to the radio show Understanding the Times, with her segment coming about 24 minutes into the show.
This past summer Bachmann was criticized by fellow Republicans, as well as Democrats, for suggesting the Muslim Brotherhood has infiltrated the U.S. government. Her remarks included the assertion that Minnesota Congressman Keith Ellison is tied to the group, something Ellison insists is false.
