Video: Welton Gaddy on MSNBC’s Hardball Addressing the Bachmann Anti-Muslim Witch Hunt

“We’re talking about politics. We’re not talking about religion; we’re not talking about security; we’re talking about a very questionable kind of patriotism.”

Rev. Gaddy appeared Friday, July 28th on MSNBC’s “Hardball With Chris Matthews” to expose the motivations behind attempts on the part of some conservatives to foment divisiveness in our nation and our government. But as you’ll see, there might also be a bright spot to some extremists going too far.
