GOP Pushing Legislation ‘Written for the Muslim Brotherhood’
Daniel Horowitz at Conservative Review argues that Republican lawmakers “are planning to promote the Muslim Brotherhood’s agenda” as a response to the Orlando terror attack.
From Conservative Review:
You can’t make this stuff up. Democrats respond to Islamic terrorist attacks by blaming inanimate objects. Now Republicans are planning to promote the Muslim Brotherhood’s agenda. Which response is worse?
There are many legislative options at the disposal of Republicans who control both chambers of the legislature. They could start by placing a pause on refugees as Obama brings in over 100 per day. I just checked the State Department database and found a jump in arrivals from Syria of 238 just from June 13 to June 14. Overall, 1,320 Syrian refugees have been admitted since June 1 – every one of them a Muslim. The American people overwhelmingly favor a pause instead of a refugee surge while their elected officials can properly audit the short-term and long-term effects of mass migration from the most volatile parts of the Islamic world.
Next, Republicans could bring legislation to the House and Senate floors finally designating the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist group, thereby freeing up law enforcement do expunge them from our government and go after the mosques controlled by Brotherhood front groups. This would cut to the foundation of the radicalization problem inside Muslim communities in this country. It would also remove the Muslim Brotherhood foxes guarding the hen house within our sensitive counterterrorism advisory boards for the FBI and DHS. The bill designating the Muslim Brotherhood a terror group (H.R. 3892) already passed the House Judiciary Committee in February.
But no. Republicans will have none of that. Instead, Republicans plan to package a bunch of nothingburger bills that, in best-case scenario, completely distracts from the core problem, and in the worst case, actually promotes the Muslim Brotherhood agenda.
