The right-wing site World Net Daily and conservative columnist Frank Gaffney came up with a new reason this week to hate the Conservative Political Action Conference, arguing that it has been infiltrated by the Muslim Brotherhood thanks to Grover Norquist, the Republican group Muslims For America, and Ex-Bush staffer Suhail Khan.
Too bad it's not true. It could only improve CPAC, bring it more to the center.
Gaffney has been a go-to shariah "expert" on the right for some time -- he even testified against a proposed mosque project in Murfreesboro, TN, and then said on CNN that the purpose of mosques "is to destroy western civilization from within."
"Every one of his assertions is completely untrue," Khan said, adding that Gaffney "doesn't want to let a few silly facts in the way of good story."
Khan also described how Gaffney has "become completely marginalized in the conservative movement," and describes the article as a "tempter tantrum given that he is being ignored."
Gaffney ignored? Too bad that's not true either. He gets on TV all he time and not just FOXPAC.
The one thing I agree with him on is that we both hate Grover Norquist, but Gaffney thinks Norquist's too far left.
Gaffney's the wingnut whackjob of which there's no whackjobier. The clown is so far right, he's on his own left. World Net Daily is a good place for him. One round can get 'em all.
