Michele Bachmann’s support of the NSA spying on Americans is being questioned by at least one of her colleagues.
Glenn Beck ranted against Bachmann after she voted to help defeat an amendment that would have restricted the NSA's ability to collect data on Americans unless they were under a criminal investigation or involved in terrorism.
Bachmann claims that there are “false narratives” being reported about what the surveillance program is actually collecting. "Your name, your address is in the phone book. Your name, your address is not in this national security database," Bachmann said.
Beck took Bachmann to task while he was on TheBlaze, The Huffington Post reported.
"Don't talk to me about the phone book! First of all, nobody uses the phone book anymore. Don't talk to me about the phone book," Beck said. "I know that the post office is taking pictures of every letter, etc., etc. Who uses a letter anymore?!"
He went on.
"There’s no freedom there and it’s not a false narrative, Michele Bachmann, and shame on you for saying that," Beck said. "Shame on you. You know better than that. And I like you and I have respect for you, but shame on you.”
Beck was not pleased about Bachmann’s false narrative comments.
“She could have also said something like, ‘“Look, I’m on the Intelligence Committee…[and] the American people don’t know what a precarious situation we’re in. While I’m gravely concerned about the NSA, I happen to think that we are in bigger trouble because [of a] more clear and present danger of the people who…want to kill us.”’
