This is what I see as the most hilarious episode to come out of CPAC 2013. A panel hosted by known as "The Uninvited" Panel (Because even the regular crackpot Republicans didn't want them there) had quite a moment when Orly Taitz wanted to discuss Obama's citizenship. "Creeping Sharia" Islamaphobe Pamela Geller wasn't about to have any of it, after all, she was there to discuss the threat of Creeping Sharia. (Oddly, many of the people raising the alarm about Sharia share the anti-homosexual, misogynist, religiously intolerant attitudes of Sharia.)

Orly Taitz, better known as the "Birther Queen," was rebuked by blogger Pamela Geller during Saturday's panel, introduced by Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) as “the world experts on global jihad.”

Geller snapped at Taitz after she asked multiple questions about President Barack Obama's birth certificate.

“I think there’s enough substance on this panel, I mean how many topics can you handle,” Geller said, “Inappropriate. really.”

Taitz gathered up her things in a huff, perhaps to go in search of more like-minded individuals.

Also, not seen in this video (However if I find footage, you'll be the first to know) when Rep. King introduced the panel he told the group that gathered that the FBI has “scrubbed out” derogatory references to "Islam" or "Muslims" because their Muslim advisers told them they had to. And of course he couldn’t pass up the opportunity to talk illegal immigrants, who he referred to as “undocumented Democrats.”

Former Bush Attorney General Michael Mukasey was also on hand, and warned of Islam’s “need to impose sharia on the world,” noting that “there has been a systematic purging of references to Islamism, lest offense be given to Muslims.” He then asked where is the government finding out what will offend Muslims, groups like CAIR and ISNA, “both of which are branches of the Muslim Brotherhood.

“The vast majority of the world’s 1.4 billion Muslims adhere to a view of their religion that agrees on the need to impose Sharia, or Islamic law, on the world,” he said.

My mind finally numbed a bit through all of the commentary from speakers with all of the details of how the Muslim Brotherhood is ruling the world -- or maybe it's just America -- it was hard to keep up with all of the spinning. But, there was a bit more humor with crying over being called "The Uninvited," and Pamela Geller's tears over her “truth is the new hate speech” drivel.
