The Infiltration Of The Republican Brotherhood
Being the self-righteous douche-bags they are- this comes as no surprise.
Reps. Trent Franks (R-AZ), Tom Rooney (R-FL) and Lynn Westmoreland (R-GA) blamed the media for unfairly focusing on Hillary Clinton’s deputy chief of staff, Huma Abedin. The three Republicans, along with Reps. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) and Louie Gohmert (R-TX), sent letters to five inspectors general last month calling on them to investigate activities that appeared to be the result of influence by the Muslim Brotherhood, a radical Islamist group.
“I regret that Mrs. Abedin has become the media focus of this story, because the intention of the letters was to bring greater attention to a legitimate national security risk,” Rooney explained..
The five Republicans said Abedin should be investigated because she “has three family members - her late father,( Dead for over 30 years) her mother, and her brother were connected to Muslim Brotherhood operatives and/or organizations.” They accused the State Department of engaging in activities that “have been enormously favorable to the Muslim Brotherhood and its interests.”
Republicans like House Speaker John Boehner, Arizona Sen. John McCain, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and former Bachmann campaign manager Ed Rollins have all condemned the allegations targeting Abedin.
The five Republicans also called for investigations targeting other Muslim members of the Obama administration. They accused the Pentagon of “submission” to Islam in Afghanistan for apologizing for the destruction of Qu’rans and avoiding the display of non-Muslim religious symbols. The five Republicans chastised the Defense Department’s Counter-Insurgency strategy for “restrictive rules of engagement that, among other things, subordinate force protection to minimizing civilian causalities.” Which means it's better to kill countless innocents, as long as you get one bad guy.
Their paranoid allegations rely heavily on “The Muslim Brotherhood in America: The Enemy Within,” a ten-part video course produced by the Center for Security Policy. The organization was founded by anti-Muslim conspiracy theorist nut-job Frank Gaffney, who has also accused the Conservative Political Action Conference of being infiltrated by the Muslim Brotherhood through anti-tax activist Grover Norquist.
