Once again, It’s time to present this week’s statuette of shame, The Golden Weasel!!
Every Tuesday, the Council nominates some of the slimiest, most despicable characters in public life for some deed of evil, cowardice or corruption they’ve performed. Then we vote to single out one particular Weasel for special mention, to whom we award the statuette of shame, our special, 100% plastic Golden Weasel. This week’s nominees were all disgusting, but the votes are in and we have our winner… the envelope please…
America’s Favorite Closet Islamist, Grover Norquist!!
The Noisy Room: My nomination this week is Grover Norquist. Glenn Beck should be commended for taking on Grover Norquist. He should have been outed years and years ago. Beck devoted two shows to Norquist this week. The first laid out his connections to the Muslim Brotherhood. In the second show, he had Grover on to defend himself. The weasel did a very bad job of defending his record. His demeanor and posturing screamed that he was lying. He only went on Beck’s show after he petulantly emailed Beck that he was backing out and then reversed himself because he realized how bad it made him look.
The best line of the whole interview by Beck to Norquist: “If I take you at face value, you’re the most unlucky person … I’ve ever met in my life,” Beck said. “Only Barack Obama is this unlucky with a string of friends who are radicals.” I think that pretty much says it all.
Ah, unlucky perhaps from the infidel point of view, but very lucky in terms of inserting Islamism and the Ikhwan deep into the American body politic saddiqh! Why it was Grover, a good friend of Karl Rove who started an Islamic lobbying group, the Islamic Institute with the help of thousands of dollars from Hamas and Hezbollah supporter Abdulrahman Alamoudi. Alamoudi was later revealed as a top Brotherhood leader in the U.S. involved in massive terrorism fundraising operations and is now imprisoned for his part in trying to assassinate Saudi head of State Prince Abdullah.
Grover also introduced Sami-al-Arian in GOP circles, including presidential candidate George W. Bush. Al-Arian was Islamic Jihad’s man in America, later imprisoned for laundering money raised in America for Hamas and Islamic Jihad.
As a matter of fact, Grover Norquist as been one of the most influential ‘borers from within’ around when it comes to Islamists and the Muslim Brotherhood. You don’t get more weasel than that.
So step up and get your weasel effendi… Mahbrouk!
Well, there it is!
Check back next Tuesday to see who next week’s nominees for Weasel of the Week are!
