GOP Rep: Hard To Authorize AUMF When Obama Sides With Enemy

Rep. Scott Perry, agonized over his decision to vote for the AUMF against ISIS because Obama is a secret Muslim agent.

Philadelphia had some good news today when we learned the the DNC is coming to City Of Brotherly Love in 2016, but that hasn't stopped one of their Congressmen from joining the ranks of the lunatic fringe. He joined Islamophobe Frank Gaffney's “Defeat Jihad Summit" and expressed his concerns about supporting the AUMF that President Obama has formally requested because Obama is part of the Muslim Brotherhood - or something.

Perry said that while he feels “duty bound” to stop the “growing scourge” of the Islamic State, he doesn’t want to sanction the use of force by Obama, who he claimed is “really working collaboratively with what I would say is the enemy of freedom and individual freedom and liberty and Western civilization and modernity.”

“And in that context, how do you vote to give this commander-in-chief the authority and power to take action when…you know in your heart that, if past performance is any indicator of future performance, that he won’t, and that he actually might use it to further their cause and what seems to be his cause and just drag you as a complicitor [sic] in it,” he said.

Can you imagine how conservatives would've reacted if anyone from the left had said that George Bush was working with the Taliban and Bin Laden? Bill O'Reilly would have went on a week long jag, calling anyone who said that a traitor to America who should be shot. But in today's GOP, his words are an every day occurrence. Nothing new there.
