In an interview with far-right radio host Pete Santilli last month, anti-Muslim activist Walid Shoebat cited former Rep. Michele Bachmann’s conspiracy theories about former Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin to assert that Clinton was promoting the goals of the Muslim Brotherhood in the State Department, adding that criticism of such conspiracy theories shows that “we are really behaving as an Islamist society.”
Shoebat, who has previously pushed bizarre conspiracy theories about Abedin, said that criticism of Bachmann from people like Republican Sen. John McCain shows that “the corruption that goes on in Turkey is happening in the U.S.”
Shoebat had a sympathetic audience in Santilli, who in 2013 infamously called for Clinton to be “ tried, convicted and shot in the vagina.”
There’s no eye looking at what Clinton is doing with the Muslim Brotherhood. And the moment you say anything about it, I mean Bachmann talked about the Muslim Brotherhood infiltration in America and she was attacked by McCain, by even, RINOs began to attack her the moment she brought up the issue.
The moment you talk about it, you are labeled as an Islamophobe, you are labeled as a hatemonger. But what about the evidence? The evidence isn’t even examined. In other words, what we see happening in this country is that we are really behaving as an Islamist society. We are very much akin to Turkey. Look at Turkey, the corruption that goes on in Turkey is happening in the U.S.
