Far-right group warning of Islamist infiltration to hold banquet at Trump's Mar-a-Lago Club

A far-right group that believes Islamists are infiltrating the U.S. government will hold a banquet Saturday night at President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club, according to a permit issued for the event.

The group, the Center for Security Policy, has also spread the false idea that former president Barack Obama is a Muslim and alleged that mainstream Muslim organizations in the United States are secretly agents of anti-American jihad.

The group has rented a ballroom for Saturday at Trump’s club in Palm Beach, Fla., for its annual Freedom Flame Award Dinner. The 200-person event, named after the group’s flaming-torch symbol, previously was held in New York City and Washington.

This year, it was relocated. “This is our first-ever event in Palm Beach,” a center official wrote to the town of Palm Beach in an email obtained through a public-records request.

The old Mar-a-Lago is gone. This is the new Mar-a-Lago.

Once, Trump’s club was a major player in the Palm Beach social season — renting out its ballrooms for large and lucrative charity galas. Then, in 2017, Trump said there were “very fine people on both sides” in response to violence that broke out between participants of a white-supremacist rally in Charlottesville and counterprotesters.

At Mar-a-Lago, many of his best customers quit. Two years later, most are still gone.


I mean, where else would Islamophobes hold their jamborees?
