Though Allen West, sadly, was gerrymandered out of his House seat, 5 shining stars in the Republican Party continue to wage the war against Islam

wishywashy_and_real_muslims-viThe Left insists on calling them the Top 5 Islam-Bashing Republicans to Watch in 2013. But an overwhelming majority of Republican voters regard the West and Islam as being embroiled in “a fundamental conflict which only one side can win.” And left up to the Democrat dhimmis, God forbid, we know which side that would be.

1. Michele Bachmann

images-6Last summer, Bachmann garnered national attention when she and other Republicans alleged that the Muslim Brotherhood, an Egyptian-based political movement that spread throughout the Middle East, had “penetrated” the U.S. government.

EGYPTIAN MAGAZINE AFFIRMS MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD INFILTRATION OF THE WHITE HOUSE The article names Arif Alikhan, assistant secretary of Homeland Security for policy development; Mohammed Elibiary, a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council; Rashad Hussain, the U.S. special envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference; Salam al-Marayati, co-founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council, or MPAC); Imam Mohamed Magid, president of the Islamic Society of North America, or ISNA; and Eboo Patel, a member of President Obama’s Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships.

Bachmann singled out a prominent Muslim-American aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton named Huma Abedin as being part of the conspiracy. The Minnesota congresswoman made the allegations in letters sent to U.S. government officials. The letter questioned whether there was “direct influence” on the intelligence community from “[Muslim] Brotherhood operatives.” And the letter also mentioned that Abedin has “family members” connected to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Her letter to U.S. government officials made clear that Bachmann got her ideas from Frank Gaffney, a former Reagan aide and prominent anti-Islam expert. Gaffney is a leading anti-Muslim activist in the U.S., and has produced a 10-part online series about the Muslim Brotherhood’s influence in the U.S. But the idea that the Muslim Brotherhood is plotting from within is a McCarthyite theory that casts aspersions on Muslim-Americans within the U.S. government. There is also no evidence to support the theory. (Except that there is. See article posted above)

In 2011, Bachmann stoked fear about sharia law–Islamic law–taking over U.S. courts.

2. Peter King

Unknown-1He may have lost his chairmanship of the Homeland Security committee due to party-imposed term-limits, but you can count on King stoking the flames of fear towards Islam next year. King, a Republican hailing from Long Island, used his post as chair of the House Homeland Security Committee to specifically target the problem of terrorism within the Muslim community. After serving for seven years, King is no longer the head of the committee, though he will remain a member.

King held a total of five separate hearings on Islam and terrorism in the United States,  to focus on the threat of “homegrown” terrorism from Muslims.

His first hearing sparked the most controversy. Titled “The Extent of Radicalization in the American Muslim Community and that Community’s Response,” it was based on King’s assumption that the Muslim community in the U.S. is prone to breeding extremists. In 2004, King claimed that “80%, 85% of the mosques in this country are controlled by Islamic fundamentalists.”

King courted even more controversy based on one of his star witnesses at the first hearing: Zuhdi Jasser, an activist who has become the right’s spokesMuslim. Jasser is the head of a group called the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, which is funded by anti-Muslim figures like the right-wing Christian Foster Friess. Many Muslim organizations say that Jasser has little following among American Muslims (What a surprise, he tells the truth about them). Jasser narrated an Islamorealistic film titled “The Third Jihad,” that was shown to New York Police Department officers as training and claims that Muslim extremists are plotting from within to take over the U.S. (Now banned from police training thanks to whining by the Islamofascists at CAIR)

Other statements in King’s past show that his motivation to root out Muslim extremism in the U.S. is based on his claim about mosques in the U.S. being run by radical extremists (many are) and has also claimed that “the Muslim community does not cooperate anywhere near to the extent that it should” on terrorism-related cases. (The poster below was distributed to the Muslim community by CAIR)

3. Mike McCaul

images-3For the House Homeland Security Committee, McCaul, a Republican hailing from Texas, has dutifully served alongside King on the committee. And now, he’s getting his chance to run it on his own. Since King was forced out of the top spot due to party-imposed parameters, McCaul has been tapped to lead the Homeland Security Committee. McCaul’s history of exposing Muslim terrorism in the US shows why he will likely lead the committee similar to how King did.

In fact, McCaul strongly supported the King-led hearings focusing on Muslim-Americans. McCaul praised King’s hearings as a way to “end the era of political correctness.” During the hearing itself, McCaul said:  “I am mystified by the controversy that has followed from this.” After King’s fifth set of hearings, McCaul said that the “U.S. should not overlook the correlation between Islam and national security.”

McCaul appeared on Frank Gaffney’s radio show last year–the same radio show where Gaffney has spread his well-documented theories about sharia law and the Muslim Brotherhood in the U.S. And McCaul didn’t bat an eye, or mutter any response, when Gaffney carried on about the “Muslim Brotherhood’s operations in the United States.” (See article above) When he got a chance to speak, McCaul indulged in speculation about the “threat” of Hezbollah, the Lebanese armed group, in the Western Hemisphere

4. Louie Gohmert

images-4This Texas Republican has been a leader in speaking out about the dangers of Islam before. Gohmert made headlines with remarks about Islam and President Barack Obama. He suggested that Obama’s allegiances were with Islamic states instead of the U.S. “I know the president made the mistake one day of saying he had visited all 57 states, and I’m well aware that there are not 57 states in this country, although there are 57 members of OIC, the Islamic states in the world,” Gohmert said on the House floor. “Perhaps there was some confusion whether he’d been to all 57 Islamic states as opposed to all 50 U.S. states. But nonetheless, we have an obligation to the 50 American states, not the 57 Muslim, Islamic states…This administration [has been]  complicit in helping people who wants [sic] to destroy our country.”

Gohmert’s speech played into the right-wing conspiracy theory that Obama was a secret Muslim in league with anti-American Islamists. In line with that theory, Gohmert has also suggested that Obama listens to advisers from the Muslim Brotherhood.

5. Trent Franks

images-5In recent years, Arizona Republican Trent Franks has taken to demonizing Muslim-Americans. In 2009, Franks was one of four Republicans to call for an investigation of the Muslim Brotherhood proxy Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), proven to have links to terrorist group Hamas. The GOP members claimed an investigation was needed into whether CAIR was “spying” on Congressional offices in order to influence policy.

The evidence for that charge was a 2007 CAIR memo that called for placing Muslim interns in key Congressional offices in order to influence policy on issues important to Muslim-Americans–something that every interest group does in Washington. 

images-7Muslim Mafia, true story of Intern Chris Gaubatz who courageously gained the trust of CAIR’s inner sanctum, while working undercover as a devoted convert to Islam, blows the whistle on the entire factory fueling the wave of homegrown terrorism now plaguing America. His six-month penetration of the Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations resulted in a collection of thousands of pages of smoking-gun documents from this terror-supporting front group for the dangerous, mob-like Muslim Brotherhood.

Franks’ anti-Muslim fear-mongering didn’t stop in 2009, though. The next year, he showed support for Frank Gaffney’s theory that sharia law was on the march in the U.S., led by Muslim-American organizations with links to the Muslim Brotherhood who were plotting from within.

Predictably, the latest iteration of Franks’ ‘Islamophobia’ was his signature on Bachmann’s McCarthyite letter about Muslim Brotherhood influence in the U.S. government and Clinton aide Huma Abedin.

  1. My question is do these 5 people have much influence now that Obummas party is getting another term? (Im not too familiar with the workings behind the scene of American politics as BNI knows so I always ask these questions)

  2. I hope that Allan West will run again and that the people of Florida will not allow illegal voting procedures to defeat a true American patriot like Mr. West. We need more like him who are not afraid to tell the truth. We are thankful for Bachmann, King, Franks, Gohmert McCaul and all of the courageous and wise congress members who will stand up and speak up for the truth and ‘out’ the muslim agenda of jihad at every opportunity. It is up to us to support them and to do so with our votes and our wallets.

  3. My hat is off to all 5 of them! I’d love to have Peter King in John Boehner’s spot. He’s tough as whitleather (that’s rawhide for those who don’t know.) He calls it as he sees it, & he’s not worried about playing nicey-nice.

  4. Saudi sergeant arrested in rape of boy at Circus Circus

    A member of the Saudi Arabian military in the United States for a training mission has been charged with raping a boy in a Strip hotel on New Year’s Eve.

    Police said he first denied allegations but later admitted he “put his penis in his mouth for just a couple of seconds,” and his penis “accidentally” went into the boy’s rectum.

  5. Bachmann is from the usually brain frozen, muslim butt kissing State of Minnesota where her district seems to be about the only place up there with actual people living in it. The rest are the ragheads and ludefisk munchers that elected Keith Ellison.

  6. I agreed on the gerrymandered out part. Funny, but that process is used by democRATS to ssure a majority of blacks in a given district. In this case, the democRATS (and that’s a true description) joined hands (left hands) with their bosom buddies, the filthy ragheads to deprive a true Americn hero. Adfter changing the demographic, they continued to further Lie, Cheat and Steal to the extent that some precints voted more people than were registered.
    Just a case of friends helping friends — Just like Obama and the muslim brotherhood, eh ?

  7. Dear BNI:

    At least there are some politicians that are willing to speak the truth about izslime’s jihad against America and the implementation of sharia law.

    Just saw this news Bonni; it is FYI…

    In Las Vegas on New Year’s Eve; apparently a Sgt. in the Saudi Arabian military… has been arrested for raping a young boy at a well known Vegas hotel.

    Look for CAIR to try to come to his rescue or Saudi Arabian officials to ask for him being sent back to Saudi Arabia (where he could get his own harem of children). I was surprised he was arrested. Does “diplomatic immunity” apply to military personnel from foreign nations who are in the US or does it only apply to those actually in the diplomatic service? What if you are a foreign military connected to your nation’s consulate or embassy?

    I wonder if he is sent back to Saudi Arabia if islamic apologists will give him a 9 year old American girl to take back with him as a child bride… or maybe a black or filippino child as a household slave.

    Its the “New Year” now 13 years into the modern 21st century and yet another story about muslims raping children.

  8. I think Allen West must become President!

    We need more such able politicians in the tradition of John Quincy Adams, Abraham Lincoln, Roosevelt,Truman and Winston Churchill!

      • unfortunately i fear that it will take a lot longer than that. a whole lot longer
        it most likely will come down to actual fighting in fighting in the streets

  9. These are the types of Congressmen & women we need to be electing to the House & the Senate! Fiscal sanity, anti-crony capitalism and a real challenge to islamofascism and the muzzie bro-hood in the USA need to be TOP priorities of this and future Congresses!
