Calls for West Point to uninvite Frank Gaffney's buddy and fellow spittle-dribbling, anti-Muslim hate-monger Jerry Boykin from an upcoming prayer event have prompted Mr Gaffney to wrap himself in the famous words of Martin Niemöller. We are not making this up..
Right Wing Watch reminds us just why this is serious bullshit:
"Last year, Gaffney demanded that the American Conservative Union disinvite Suhail Kahn of Muslims for America from the Conservative Political Action Conference. He also called on CPAC to give the boot to Grover Norquist, who has done advocacy work in the past with Muslim-Americans including Kahn, labeling both of them threats to the conservative movement and supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood. Moreover, Liberty Counsel’s Awakening 2011 conference, Gaffney condemned the conference for allowing Norquist to speak there and said that he made it his “personal burden for the past twelve years” to warn conservatives against joining with Norquist, saying, “I must tell you I think this is time to bring it to a stop."
You have to admit, disconnect this wide is impressive.
It's also worth noting that Mr Gaffney, a self-declared "patriot" who was too busy to ever serve his country, is opposed by thousands who actually have on this one.
