Speaking on the House floor yesterday, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) charged that the Obama administration had been ‘complicit in helping people who want to destroy our country’ and speculated that a mistake then-Senator Obama made on the campaign trail in 2008 might have been an admission that the president’s loyalties are actually with the Organization of the Islamic Conference.
Political Correction – In the past, Gohmert has railed against “illegal Palestinian settlements,” warned the nation of terror babies and even accused the president of being more willing to “sit down with” terrorists than with Republicans. Gohmert noted that there were 57 members in the Organization of the Islamic Conference, suspiciously the same number of states President Obama had claimed existed, and that American public officials took their oaths “in this body… not to the Muslim Brotherhood.”
Gohmert is quite chummy with Frank Gaffney, founder and president of the American Center for Security Policy and columnist at the Washington Times. In fact, he spoke to Gaffney on his radio show earlier in the week, warning that the Brotherhood was tirelessly working to supplant the Constitution with Sharia law. Gohmert even accused Gen. David Petraeus of implicitly endorsing Sharia by speaking out against a planned burning of the Quran by a Florida-based pastor. As Gohmert saw it, Petraeus’ warning against the burning was effectively saying that “we need to subvert Americans’ First Amendment rights to Sharia.”
