Rep. Louis Gohmert: Obama Listening To Muslim Brotherhood’s Advice Not To Harm Isis
Of course, this makes no sense, since President Obama already bombed ISIS.
Appearing on SiriusXM’s “The Wilkow Majority,” Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) argued, “if you’re Commander-in-Chief you can’t be listening to Muslim brother advise on when it’s time to stop destroying Muslim brothers.”
The comments was a reference to the Texas congressman’s theory that the U.S. government has been infiltrated by the Muslim Brotherhood, a group that Egypt recently opted to reclassify as a terrorist organization. In 2012, Gohmert joined a small group of conservative lawmakers led by Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) to demand that the Inspectors General of four government agencies investigate “deep penetration” by the Muslim Brotherhood in the U.S. government. The Obama administration condemned the lawmakers for using false and inaccurate information to smear “anyone that happens to be Muslim.”
Gohmert, who had previously claimed that the organization also caused the administration to bungle the investigation into the 2013 Boston bombings, went on to argue that “six top advisers to President Obama are Muslim brothers.” “These are the advisers who have open doors for them to the president himself,” he said. “This is the kind of stuff that has to stop if we’re really going to deal with radical Islam.”[su_sky_ad]
