From CPAC Podium, Horowitz Claims 'CPAC has been infiltrated by the Muslim Brotherhood' LOL

Speaking at CPAC today, conservative commentator David Horowitz attacked conservative activists Suhail Khan and Grover Norquist, claiming that Khan, with Norquist's aid, "infiltrat" CPAC, the Bush White House and the conservative movement on behalf of the Muslim Brotherhood.

We've seen the conservatives fall into disarray over the recent events in Egypt with some conservatives hopeful about the fall of Egyptian dictator Hosni Mubarak while others, led by Glenn Beck, engaging in bizarre conspiracy theories such as that the protests in Egypt are tied to the Muslim Brotherhood, progressives, Marxists, and others.

But this is a whole new level.

Khan spoke at two CPAC 2011 events. Khan is also a board member of the American Conservative Union, the group that organizes CPAC each year. Furthermore, according to his biography, Khan has "served as a senior political appointee with the Bush administration" and as "Policy Director and Press Secretary for U.S. Congressman Tom Campbell (R-CA)."

Horowitz claimed that Khan "used his offices in the Bush White House with Grover support to carry water for the terrorist Sami Al-Arian." Horowitz added that "over the last 10 years, the influence of the Brotherhood has spread throughout our government." More about the charges against Khan can be found here.

3. Did they hand out tranquilizers at this retreat for the bizarro's?
Good grief, I thought they were going to kiss the ring of the Palin wannabe. If this wasn't real, it would be hilarious. The Keystone Kops of 2011. They are running around like chickens with their heads off and coming up with some of the craziest comments I think I've ever seen.

Don't they realize this crap is being seen by sane people who know what is fact and what is fantasy?

Norquist is animatronic, and Rove has recently been exiled from the zombie collective because all the other zombies think he's an asshole

9. I've thought of setting you a tin foil hat stand near a tea party rally.
Bet I'd get rich.

14. Horowitz has a thought disorder
Truman was president in 1948, long after Roosevelt had died.

15. I just read this on ThinkProgress - makes sense now Walker is very well connected.
Pretty inclusive (I hope) links at this from my journal
http://journals.democraticunderground.com/underpants/93
While any number of foundations contribute to conservative political groups, five are worthy of particular examination: the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation, the Koch Family foundations, the John M. Olin Foundation, the Scaife Family foundations and the Adolph Coors Foundation.


Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation
Koch Family Foundations
John M. Olin Foundation
Scaife Family Foundations
Adolph Coors Foundation




Clearly Walker was put in place for this issue mainly. The whole thing is giving me that "Manchurian" feeling.

I am kicking this and the other thread with this ThinkProgress link to the top.
