Four House Republicans woke up yesterday and said to themselves, "You know what's wrong with America? There might be a Muslim in the next room right now." Remarkably, this thought coincided with the publication of Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld That's Conspiring to Islamize America, an "explosive" book for which a House Republican — North Carolina's Sue Myrick — wrote the forward. See where this is going?
Yep, these footsoldiers in the war on terror have called for investigations into the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), because it's got Muslims palling around with Americans and vice versa all the time, and in professional circles, that's known as spying…
[Reps. Sue Myrick of North Carolina, Trent Franks of Arizona, Paul Broun of Georgia and John Shadegg of Arizona] on Wednesday accused the nation's largest Muslim advocacy group of trying to "infiltrate" Capitol Hill by placing interns in the offices of lawmakers who handle national security issues.
Exactly as it's written in Muslim Mafia, the result of an "explosive" undercover investigation: the author's son grew a beard, got an internship with CAIR and stole a bunch of their paperwork. That's one intern spy right there! There must be more, and they must be up to something…
While the Republicans said they did not know of specific legislation that CAIR had affected, Franks, a Judiciary Committee member, said he wouldn’t be surprised if it was trying to amend the Patriot Act.
Oh no, that wouldn't be surprising at all.
The real shocker would be if it turns out interns are actually capable of affecting legislation.
