Everyone loves a Fake Terrorist

Apparently, one of the more popular speakers at the Value Voters Summit was a con artist who peddles a story about having been a jihadi terrorist prior to converting to Christianity and so pleas pay me huge speaking fees and buy my book.

He goes by the name of Kamal Saleem, which is not his real name because if his former employers in the Muslim Brotherhood or Al Queda or whoever found out who he really is, his life would be in danger which is why he makes public appearances talking about his past life and, according to MoJo, His real name, Khodor Shami, is readily available in media reports and on the 990 forms of the nonprofit he publicizes at every opportunity.

So who would fall for such an obvious phony?

Oh, right!

 If you're looking for a good laugh, read the whole interview over at Mother Jones. Here's a little taste:

 "I was wondering," I asked, "which law enforcement agencies and intelligence agencies you've worked with?

"The majority of them," he said. "It was in Homeland. There were a whole batch of them."

Any specifically?

"Whole batch of them. All of them. Homeland."

That's a lot of agencies.

"Yes, it was a panel."

Curious, I asked where and when the panel had been held.

"I can't tell you that," Saleem said.

Oh, you know, all of them! Where have we heard that before?

So what kind of gibberish is Kamal peddling? Some crazy conspiracy theory about Barack Obama handing over America to some Islamic organization that will shut down all the churches and synagogues and, you know, the usual.

SALEEM: And when we surrender to them authority, and we apologize to everybody over there, in Islam that is a victory, and that is the start of the march now somewhere to take over the land, take over your country and fulfill your purpose and become united Islamic nations!

Because once you apologize to someone, there's just no way to stop him from taking over your land. He basically owns your ass. I apologized to my neighbor recently about the state of my lawn, now he keeps his dog in the master bath. His mother-in-law is moving into our garage next week!

 And, yes, I know, the "apology" thing is a bunch of bullshit. I know.

This is what happened. Egypt is the capital of the OIC -- the OIC meeting here in America with Hillary and her staff! You are about to introduce U.N. Resolution 1618, the hate crime bill, which will subjugate American people to be arrested and put to jail, and the churches and synagogues shut down and go underground. And if they still go they will be put in jail and be fined big time. Which will break the First Amendment and Second Amendment. 

Yeah, the Second Amendment isn't the right to bear Torahs. How would banning churches and synagogues violate the gun amendment?
Also, UN Resolution 1618 calls for protecting religious freedom. What kind of lunatics would possibly think that it could somehow be implemented in such a way as to close down churches and synagogues?

Oh, right!

This is about to be put as early as January. As early maybe as March, at most. Right now, it is on the table to be put together. We got something to fight for, and that fight is for our children, for our grandchildren, for our liberty! For our freedom! For the future! For the nations!

This was said at the same conference, by the way, that Paul Ryan addressed. And the same conference to which Mitt Romney sent a video greeting. These people are no longer the fringe. This is the new mainstream of the Republican Party.
