Republican: Jews Are The Problem, Cause of All The Problems in The World
Retired Lt. General Jerry Boykin, who now serves as the executive vice president of the Family Research Council, was caught on a hot mic after a panel at the National Security Action Summit telling a reporter from Israel that “Jews are the problem” and the “cause of all the problems in the world.”
Boykin wasn’t done there. He turned to another reporter, saying that President Obama “identifies and supports Al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood and uses subliminal messages to express his support.”
Boykin, who is second in command at the FRC, a massive conservative Christian lobbying group that was founded by James Dobson, is no stranger to alienating comments. His statements came following a panel at the National Security Action Summit, held down the street from the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), for conservatives that weren’t invited to speak at the gathering.
It’s no surprise that Boykin wasn’t invited to CPAC, he has repeatedly accused the American Conservative Union, the organizers of CPAC, of being tied to the Muslim Brotherhood.
Boykin was instead invited to speak at the NSAS at a panel called “Benghazigate: The Ugly Truth and the Cover-up.” After the panel was broadcast on the web, the video feed went dark but the microphones remained on. Aside from the above mentioned statements, Boykin asserted that Obama’s “first real public appearance overseas was in Cairo. The notorious apology tour. If you understand anything about Islam, there are subliminal messages. I understand you and I support you.”
He continued, saying “Al Qaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood and everybody else are taking advantage of this support and the opportunity that they see that they have a president that identifies with them, that has been supportive of them inside the United States and is unwilling to go against them.”
In the past, Boykin has made some fascinating statements about other religions. He has said that the First Amendment does not apply to Islam. He has also stated that there should be no mosques built in the US.
It’s not just Muslims, he’s not a big fan of Jews either. He has previously said that Jews must be converted to Christianity and that American Jews don’t understand Hitler and that’s why they support Democrats.
