That militantly anti-gay group is the Muslim Brotherhood.

The Obama administration conducted an assessment of the Muslim Brotherhood in 2010 and 2011, beginning even before the events known as the “Arab Spring” erupted in Tunisia and in Egypt. The President personally issued Presidential Study Directive 11 (PSD-11) in 2010, ordering an assessment of the Muslim Brotherhood and other “political Islamist” movements, including the ruling AKP in Turkey, ultimately concluding that the United States should shift from its longstanding policy of supporting “stability” in the Middle East and North Africa (that is, support for “stable regimes” even if they were authoritarian), to a policy of backing “moderate” Islamic political movements.

To this day, PSD-11 remains classified, in part because it reveals an embarrassingly naïve and uninformed view of trends in the Middle East and North Africa (Mena) region.

The revelations were made by Al Hewar centre in Washington, DC, which obtained the documents in question.

There’s more about the Obama administration’s secret relationship with this strongly, violently anti-gay organization.

US State Department documents obtained under the FOIA confirm that the Obama administration maintained frequent contact and ties with the Libyan Muslim Brotherhood. At one point, in April 2012, US officials arranged for the public relations director of the Libyan Muslim Brotherhood, Mohammad Gaair, to come to Washington to speak at a conference on “Islamists in Power” hosted by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.

Read that six times, you still won’t get your head around it. The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace held a conference on “Islamists in Power.” Apparently it never occurred to any of the organizers that Islamists and peace don’t, as those bumper stickers say, COEXIST.

 Another State Department paper marked “Sensitive But Unclassified (SBU)” contained talking points for Deputy Secretary of State William Burns’ scheduled July 14, 2012 meeting with Mohammad Sawan, the Muslim Brotherhood leader who was also head of the Brotherhood’s Justice and Construction Party. The document is heavily redacted, but nevertheless provides clear indication of Washington’s sympathies for the emergence of the Muslim Brotherhood as a major political force in the post-Gaddafi Libya. The talking points recommended that Secretary Burns tell Sawan that the US government entities “share your party’s concerns in ensuring that a comprehensive transitional justice process is undertaken to address past violations so that they do not spark new discontent.”

It’s all so strange. The Obama administration has gone gay-crazy — yet it’s just about in love with the Muslim Brotherhood. Any lefties out there have an explanation for this?

For the radical left, it is not about the cause but the revolution. If you can sell a Muslim that it destroys the capitalist and heathen, wonderful. If it promises freedom and dominance to the gays, wonderful....so long as neither figures out that the two conflict.

For anyone who has paid attention to Obama's policies and actions in the Mideast, and elsewhere, this isn't much of a revelation. It's manifestly obvious that Obama has decided that the Muslim Brotherhood, despite it's origins, activities, and policies, is a force for good that should prevail in the world.

This alone, justifies, not impeachment, but Obama's permanent commitment to an insane asylum.

Stupid? Nope.

Incompetent? Nope.

Islamic?

Yup.

That is what we're up against with Telepropter Jesus, ValJar and Company.

A criminal enterprise masquerading as a political party.

All for the promotion of a caliphate whenever and wherever they can.

Seems clear enough: Gays, Dems and Muslims all hate Republicans. All else are details to be glossed over

Too many gays hate Republicans, yes, or at least feel scorned by Republicans. "Progressives" and Islamists unite in their hatred of freedom, their hatred of America as I know and love her; each thinks to be master when America has been conquered.
Given the track records of "progressives" and Islamists, I know who I think will be master if America fails. And the gays won't be glad of the outcome.
The president has to have information on groups good and bad. The president has to deal with groups good and bad. This president could seem less enthused about a group I call bad.
