Pamela Geller has discovered the reason for her exclusion from the forthcoming Conservative Political Action Conference – CPAC has been infiltrated by the Muslim Brotherhood.
She claims that the conference organisers have always taken a negative attitude towards her “because of the influence of what can only be described as Muslim Brotherhood facilitators or operatives like Suhail Khan and Grover Norquist”. This is of course the same conspiracy theory that got Frank Gaffney banned from CPAC two years ago.
Geller continues: “I think at this point people need to know just how deeply we have been infiltrated. What are they doing at CPAC? Essentially they are enforcing the Sharia. Under the Sharia, the blasphemy laws, you cannot say, you cannot offend, you cannot criticize and you cannot insult Islam. That is effectively what they’re doing, they are enforcing the Sharia.”
Meanwhile, Geller’s partner in hate crime Robert Spencer reveals that he too has been banned from CPAC. Spencer was due to receive the People’s Choice Blog Award, sponsored by Right Wing News and TheTeaParty.net, having topped an online poll. But he says CPAC organisers told him he couldn’t attend the conference to accept the award unless he agreed not to attack Grover Norquist and Suhail Khan, which he refused to do.
So, well done to Geller and Spencer. Through their extremist views and crazed talk of Muslim Brotherhood infiltrators they have managed to get themselves denied a platform at one of the most influential gatherings of the US Right, where other more mainstream Islamophobes are made welcome.
