WND And Frank Gaffney Afraid Muslims Are Infiltrating CPAC
First, the RWNJ’s were going to stay away from CPAC because GOProud, a conservative gay group, would be in attendance. But World Net Daily and conservative Frank Gaffney (pictured) have a new reason to avoid the upcoming yearly Conservative Political Action Conference:
…in an article yesterday on World Net Daily called “Now look who else is infiltrating CPAC,” Gaffney “told WND that Islamism has infiltrated the American Conservative Union, the host of CPAC, in the person of Washington attorney and political activist Suhail Khan and a group called Muslims for America.”
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.”
Of concern to WND and Gaffney is the presence of Grover Norquist, the Republican group Muslims For America, and Ex-Bush staffer Suhail Khan. Norquist is on the board of GOProud and is married to a Muslim.
Khan, a former appointee in the Bush Administration and now a Senior Fellow for Christian-Muslim Understanding at the Institute for Global Engagement, dismissed the article in a phone interview with TPM today. He described how after September 11 the claim was that he was “an Al Qaeda operative in the Bush Administration,” now it’s that he’s a member of the Muslim Brotherhood — “next week I’ll be a closet girl scout.”Click here for reuse options!
