Frank Gaffney's "Hate the Muslims" summit kicked off today and will feature Presidential candidates Carly Fiorina, Ben Carson, and Rick Santorum, who seem to have no problem joining the Hate Brigades.

But it first began with a wingnut Admiral -- Ace Lyons -- who was happy to feed attendees' fevered dreams about the President.

It was only fitting, then, that within the first hour of today’s summit — which will be attended by Ben Carson, Carly Fiorina and Rick Santorum — the topic turned to whether or not President Obama is secretly a Muslim. (Gaffney himself hasopenly entertained the idea.)

Admiral Ace Lyons, who received an award from CSP alongside Sen. Jeff Sessions earlier this year, took a question from a woman in the audience who told him, “I’d like to know why no one — that’s literally no one — is gutsy enough to call a Muslim a Muslim in our White House. It’s pretty obvious that he is.”

After what appeared to be a brief consultation with Gaffney, Lyons responded: “Well, all I can say is he certainly acts the part, doesn’t he?”

It turns out the question wasn't entirely random, but more of a response to an invitation.

“When the president of the United States is not interested in America leading or America winning, then you understand that greatest threat to our national security resides at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue,” Lyons declared to applause.

Obama, he said, has been pushing policies that are “anti-American, anti-Western, but pro-Islam, pro-Iranian and pro-Muslim Brotherhood.”

“I have to ask you,” he said. “Why would an American president embrace the Muslim Brotherhood when their creed is to destroy America from within by our own miserable hands and replace our constitution with Sharia law? It makes absolutely no sense.

Oops, there you go. President Obama is going to undermine 'Murica with Sharia law because he's a seekret Muslim.

Of course, this is all just a way to undermine Democrats by smearing the President. They're not worried about Sharia law. They're worried about Democrats winning the White House and wrecking their desire to thrash more Middle Eastern countries.
