Jesus, the attacks from the loony right just got dumber and dumber by the day. Right wing talk show host Mark Levin — one of Clarence Thomas’ best friends, by the way — says that the Chuck Hagel nomination proves that Obama is part of the Muslim Brotherhood. Naturally, the Worldnutdaily is all over it.
The talk host contended Obama’s nomination of former Republican Sen. Chuck Hagel as defense secretary is evidence that Obama himself embodies the infiltration of the Muslim Brotherhood.
“You want to look into Obama’s soul?” Levin asked, then look at Hagel.
“What kind of commander-in-chief would nominate somebody like Chuck Hagel to be secretary of defense?” he asked.
This is standard tribal rhetoric. He disagrees with Chuck Hagel on some things, so Chuck Hagel is not just wrong, he’s everything that Levin hates, all at the same time. And since Obama nominated him, he is too. And anything less than 100% agreement and commitment is proof that Hagel is the enemy. Even the slightest hint that he isn’t absolutely in the tank for anything the Israeli right wing wants is proof that he supports Muslim terrorists, and therefore that anyone who supports him is also a Muslim terrorist.
