Much is being made on the right about Muslim interns infiltrating Congress.
Oh, the hypocrisy.
Back in the 70s, Reverend Moon Shine’s Out His Ass had a plan which he implemented where he was going to put sexy young women in the offices of Congressmen and those women would convert the Congressmen into Moonies and obey Moon’s commands in his quest to rule America.
According to Wikipedia, “In 1977 and 1978, a subcommittee of the United States Congress led by Congressman Donald M. Fraser conducted an investigation of South Korea – United States relations and produced a report that included 81 pages about Moon and what the subcommittee termed "the Moon Organization." The Fraser committee found that the KCIA [the Korean Central Intelligence Agency] decided to use the Unification Church as a political tool within the United States and that some Unification Church members worked as volunteers in Congressional offices.”
This made Moon an enemy to the United States. Moon is still powerful and well-respected within far right Republican and Christian Right groups—the very club that Representatives Sue Myrick, John Shadegg and Paul Broun belong to. Apparently this started with World Net Daily, which is obviously so myopic, bigoted and fervent they cannot see what damage lobbyists are doing to Congress compared to Muslim interns.
Oh, the hypocrisy.
Oh, the paranoia.
Oh, the book sales.
According to Suhail Khan, a former Capitol Hill staffer and political appointee of George Bush on Rachel Maddow, this all began as a way to sell the book that Sue Myrick admitted to writing the forward for, “Muslim Mafia”.
CAIR is the new ACORN.
Many of you may be too young to remember a young Iranian parliamentarian named Yusuf Makarti who, back in the 70s, tried to make a name and career for himself by claiming Christians were secretly infiltrating the Revolutionary Guard.
He became very powerful and preyed on the anti-Christian paranoia that gripped Iran during the decade in which they lost their lovable Shah.
Do ya feel me? Do ya get me?
Iranian-Canadian journalist Maziar Bahari was released on bail today.
