As a guest on the fringe conspiracy website World Net Daily’s radio network, GOP Representative Louie Gohmert of Texas attacked the Obama administration’s handling of the Boston Marathon bombing investigation — adding for good measure that members of the Muslim Brotherhood have infiltrated the administration and are influencing its decisions.
“It’s very clear to everybody but this administration that radical Islam is at war against us,” Gohmert said. “And I’m hoping either this administration will wake up or a new one will come in at the next election before irreparable damage is done, because radical Islam is at war with us. Thank God for the moderates who don’t approve of what’s being done. But this administration has so many Muslim Brotherhood members that have influence that they just are making wrong decisions for America.”
Claiming that members of the Muslim Brotherhood have infiltrated the U.S. government is nothing new from Republicans. In 2012, Michele Bachmann initiated the false rumors, fingering a top Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin. Bachmann’s accusations were instantly rebuked by politicians on both sides of the aisle.
