Noted Islamofascist “Conservative” Grover Norquist in the Tank for Obama; Says he “Closed the Door” on Rev. Wright

By Debbie Schlussel
As long as conservatives continue to exalt pan-Islamic extremist Grover Norquist as one of their leaders, they will fail. And it figures that Norquist gave the forgiveness to Barack Obama over Rev. Wright that he’s in no position to give. I mean, after all, Rev. Wright is a former Muslim who continues to support HAMAS and anti-Semitism, just like . . . Grover Norquist.
Today’s Wall Street Journal had quotes from a number of prominent people commenting on the Obama Presidency. All of those quoted were far more prominent than Norquist, but none as tight with the WSJ editorial board and staff. Norquist’s quote was notable in how he claimed that Obama “closed the door” on racism and Rev. Wright:


HUH?: Islam’s Fave Republican Grover Norquist

Claims Obama “Closed the Door” on Rev. Wright

It was wonderful to hear President Obama state what is self-evident to most Americans. Before President Obama’s speech there was a great deal of pundit chatter about how far “we” had come as a nation. Many of “us” have not moved from the position championed by Martin Luther King.
I was pleased that Obama’s campaign and speech closed the door on more recent history – his own Chicago church’s wallowing in racial division and resentment.

(Norquist goes on to attack state power and government spending, even though he championed the Bush Medicare bill, the most expensive single government program Bush created, far more expensive than anything in contemporary times.)
HUH?! Does anyone actually believe Obama closed the door on Rev. Wright or racial wallowing?
I guess Jihad Grover missed the part where Rev. Joseph Lowery (Obama’s chosen speaker) prayed for the day when the White man will embrace “what is right.” And I guess he invented the part that “closed the door” on Wright, rather than conveniently threw him under the bus, while not explaining belonging to his church for two decades.
It’s interesting how Jihad Grover is so willing to forgive Obama but not so willing to stop his endless pan-Islamic McCarthyism campaign against those of us who are against Islamic terrorism. He got me disinvited from speaking at the NRA Convention (the NRA later had to re-invite me but hasn’t invited me back since) because he didn’t like that I wrote about his friend, Islamic Jihad terrorist group founder Sami Al-Arian’s activities and because I wrote about his friend Congressman Darrell Issa’s open support for Hezbollah and Yasser Arafat.
Who knew the NRA was the official defender of Islamic terrorism? After all, I thought they were about one issue–the Second Amendment–but I was wrong.
It should also be noted that Norquist illegally laundered over $1 million in Indian Tribe money for Jack Abramoff, ripping off taxpayers and taking his cut. He was never prosecuted by the Bush Administration. That’s something I wish Obama would “open the door” about.

Grover Norquist’s wife Samah Norquist is from Palestinian descent.
That says it all.

The whole bunch of them are a really sorry lot of careerists. I think one of the root causes of the conservatives’ apparent disintegration is the belief of so many of them that the most important thing is to win. Once you put pragmatism ahead of all else, core beliefs are forgotten, and expediency becomes the most important thing.
This takes conservatives to the point where winning elections becomes more important than denouncing a terrorist fellow-traveler (to say the least) like Norquist. Accepting Norquist as a conservative because of his occasional and quarter-hearted statements about spending is kind of like accepting Farrakhan as a conservative because he sometimes praises the family and the role of black men in the family. Just latch on to something that will keep this person in your (pseudo-conservative) corner.

Paul Sperry believes Norquist is a Muslim “revert”:
If he isn’t an Islamist himself, he certainly plays the part well.

We conservatives must drive the charlatans out of the Republican party. Thanks Debbie for identifying one of them. We must do more.

As long as the conservative movement embraces frauds like Grover Norquist and Sean Hannity, no one will ever take it seriously. Its time to clean house!

Norquist is the worst kind of scum. He, more than anyone else on the right, is responsible for softening us to Islamo-Fascism. He made the Bush White House, the GOP, and otherwise respectable circles fall for the PC poison that is slowing killing us.
He is the worse kind of traitor. We expect lefties to be useful idiots. He is more than a useful idiot–he is an active traitor.

RE : Grover Norquist
It’s great that Debbie has exposed him. The Conservatives I hang around with don’t even know
he exists, never mind his views. We abandoned
the Bush/McCain wing of the Republican Party 3
years ago when we realized he had screwed us. So
all of you who keep putting us Conservatives in
the same basket with the Bushes and McCains don’t
know what you are yapping about. We real Conservatives are solid backers of Israel, even
tho most American Jews keep voting for the Democrats ( go figure ! ). So stop bashing your
friends and wake up to who your real enemies are
( the Liberals esp. Hollywood ! ).

Obama closed the door on Wright huh? Well did anyone notice Michelle Obama`s and Jill Biden`s color choices for their outfits for the swearing in? Biden would have chosen her colors under Michelle`s direction seeing as Michelle is the senior Lady. Baby poop yellow/ drab olive green and black and red. How patriotic? For Africa maybe. Those are the pan african colors. Can be a combination of all four or just three. Yep, Michelle was displaying the colors she is really loyal to. Wright and his Africa First teachings are alive and well in DC.

Forgot to add spouses of Heads of State normally wear symbolic colors for significant events. Example for a state visit the wife would wear the colors of the host nation in some form or other.

Grover Norquist is a traitor that supports the infiltration of American institutions by the Muslim Brotherhood.

Good ol’Grover is America’s Gallowswine, he may not have the dirty mouth of his Scottish counterpart, but he does his subversive activities the sly, quiet way. Which doesn’t make him less dangerous…

Grover Norquist may want to move on but anyone with common sense would understand a simple truth. You can tell what is in a man’s heart by the friends he keeps.
Barack Obama picked this church and attended for 20 years. While he denied that he heard nor was present when Wright made his bigoted and hateful remarks, an interview surfaced from 2004 with Chicago Sun Times columnist Cathleen Falsani in which Obama confirmed that he attended Wright’s church every Sunday.
See for yourself;
When attending a church, the attendee picks the church based on its pastor. By attending regularly for 20 years, it is without question that Obama approved of the Pastor.
“To sin by silence when they should protest makes cowards of men.” Abe Lincoln.
“Courage is the first of all the virtues because if you haven’t courage, you may not have the opportunity to use any of the others.” Samuel Johnson
His hollow words during his race speech was simply for political expediancy and thus speaks for itself.
“There is not in all America a more dangerous trait than the deification of mere smartness unaccompanied by any sense of moral responsibility.” Teddy Roosevelt- Abeilene, Kansas, May 2, 1903
