Thanks to all who sent this from The Blaze!
Glenn Beck on Monday began what he said is “just the beginning” of his work to reveal the background and motivations of Grover Norquist, the founder and president of Americans for Tax Reform.
Beck began by playing recent clips of Norquist calling out Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) for his efforts to derail Obamacare, noting that while he used to joke about the left’s portrayal of Norquist as a “big power player,” he’s since revised his dismissive opinion in light of the warnings that you “don’t ever take this guy on unless you’re prepared.”
Beck’s show Monday primarily concentrated on Norquist’s alleged connections to Islamists. He invited Frank Gaffney, the president of the Center for Security Policy, and Daniel Greenfield of the David Horowitz Freedom Center, to weigh in. [Readers, Greenfield is the writer with the brilliant observation about Obama which Judy posted here yesterday —ed]
“[Norquist] is the guy responsible for a lot of the Muslim Brotherhood stuff that goes on in the White House, isn’t he?” Beck asked the two.
“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 remarked. “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?’”
For more! ambitious readers might want to visit our Grover Norquist archive by clicking here (holy cow! we have over 100 posts in which Norquist’s name comes up). It’s possible that we have the largest collection of Norquist posts in any one place. We have been following his activities for years with special interest in the Islamist connections, but also in regards to his Open Borders lobbying efforts.
Just a few days ago I asked if Norquist was a sleeper inserted in the Republican Party long ago, here.
Here is one post (2010) that tells you what Norquist thinks of Beck—-Norquist disses Beck’s gift of a signature chalk board.
And, Beck’s producer (or then producer) Dan Andros did not even know who Norquist was in 2011, and they made fun of long-time Grover critic and former US Senator Alan Simpson on the show, here.
I’m glad to report that Beck and company are now starting to know who Grover Norquist is!
Next! Someone needs to write a book about Grover. In fact, it might be one of the most important projects a patriotic American could take on to save the country. I think it would be like pulling a string and unraveling the whole ball.
