After Grover Norquist, the champion of the no-tax pledge, attacked Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) for leading the fight to shut down the government, Glenn Beck on Monday began what he said is “just the beginning” of his work to reveal Norquist's background and motivations
To that end, Beck invited Frank Gaffney, a man who does not know how to respond to any kind of ideological challenge except to accuse his opponents of being Muslim Brotherhood operatives, onto the show to weigh in.
Where, yes, you guessed it, Gaffney and Beck accused Grover Norquist of being a Muslim Brotherhood operative.
"[Norquist] is the guy responsible for a lot of the Muslim Brotherhood stuff that goes on in the White House, isn’t he?" asked Beck.
"Glenn, I think most people who know Grover only as a prominent anti-tax guy in the conservative movement would find that statement unbelievable, and to be honest with you I would’ve, but for the fact that I saw it first-hand as a result of sharing office space for what I think of seven biblically long years with Grover Norquist," Gaffney responded. "I saw terrorists in his office space. I had colleagues come to me and say, 'You know there's a Muslim Brotherhood front operating out of his office suite?'"
Norquist has already responded to Gaffney's remarks. In an email to WorldNetDaily (yes, that WorldNetDaily), Norquist refuted all of Gaffney's Muslim Brotherhood conspiracy theories and referred to a constant feud between the two of them as being "old and sad."
"I have ignored [this] sad person and his self-absorbed conspiracy theories that revolve around himself," said Norquist. "Say a prayer for Frank. No one deserves his troubles."
If Glenn Beck had not already jumped the shark before, he has now. He has finally reached a point of childish madness far removed enough from reality to allow the conspiracy theory dump site that is WorldNetDaily become the voice of reason by comparison.
