So the movement right is having a huge fight over who gets to attend CPAC. Some background here and here as the bigfeet of Christianism - from NOM to FRC - refuse to attend if a splinter gay-right group, GOProud, is included. But who could have predicted this development: it's all being orchestrated by the Muslim Brotherhood:

Frank Gaffney, a leader of the conservative movement for the last 30 years, charges that CPAC has come under the influence of the Muslim Brotherhood, which is working to bring America under Saudi-style Shariah law.

... Gaffney, deputy assistant secretary of defense under Ronald Reagan, is founder and president of the Center for Security Policy and co-author of the new book "Shariah: The Threat to America." He told WND that Islamism has infiltrated the American Conservative Union, the host of CPAC, in the person of Washington attorney and political activist Suhail Khan and a group called Muslims for America. Gaffney also accuses another ACU board member, leading conservative political organizer Grover Norquist, of helping the Muslim Brotherhood spread its influence in the nation's capital.

There must be a word for this process of self-purification: self-McCarthyism? The attack on Norquist's Muslim faith is particularly vile.
