After writing the forward for “Muslim Mafia,” which is basically a conspiracy about how Muslims are ‘spying’ on the United States by Paul Sperry and David Gaubatz, Myrick is now attempting to distance herself from Gaubatz.

Constituents Confront GOP Rep. Sue Myrick Over Muslim Bashing at Tense Town Hall

Muslim constituents repeatedly challenged Rep. Sue Myrick (R-NC) at an emotional town hall meeting in Charlotte Thursday, with Myrick scrambling to distance herself from the Islam-bashing co-author of the book Muslim Mafia, whose foreword was written by the congresswoman herself.

Myrick has had a tense relationship with her district’s Muslim community for many years, but it’s been aggravated recently by her campaign to investigate undercover Muslim intern “spies” on Capitol Hill.

That effort arose from purported revelations in Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld that’s Conspiring to Islamize America, written by Paul Sperry and David Gaubatz, with a foreword by Myrick.

But when confronted by some of Gaubatz’s past inflammatory statements — particularly that Islam is a “terminal disease that once spread is hard to destroy” — Myrick said she did not agree, later claiming that he did not even write the book that bears his name.

“The book was written by Paul Sperry, who is very well respected journalist,” Myrick told one questioner, according to audio of the event obtained by TPMmuckraker.

(For the record, Sperry is a WorldNetDaily contributor who once called on America to “force-feed Taliban clerics pork rinds until they give up [Osama bin Laden's] location.”

“Gaubatz did the investigating for it,” Myrick added. “And, quite frankly, Gaubatz didn’t write a word of the book. And in that sense, it’s kind of a shame his name is on the book because he didn’t write it.”

The book’s cover bears the names of both Gaubatz and Sperry.

And in her own foreword to Muslim Mafia, Myrick wrote: “Former federal investigator and co-author P. David Gaubatz, meanwhile, is a great American who deserves all our gratitude for his heroic service to our country.”

Gaubatz last year called for a “professional and legal backlash” against Muslims in the wake of the Fort Hood shootings, a remark that Myrick declined to denounce at the time.

Here are two clips of Myrick responding to constituents’ questions about Gaubatz (these came about 10 minutes apart). Transcript is below.

Q: My question is, do you stand by Mr. Gaubatz’s statement … that “Islam is a terminal disease that once spread is hard to destory.” Do you stand by the statement?

Myrick: Well — what he says I don’t — that’s not something that I say, no.

Q: Why do you call him a great American?

Myrick: Because of what he did serving our country in the armed forces. You know, that situation with that whole book, and the way they got the information and all, I’ve said it should all be investigated.

Q: I believe that as the veteran eight-term congresswoman that you are, it would have been more fitting if you had repudiated such a book written by David Gaubatz.

Myrick: It was actually written by — let’s get that clear. The book was written by Paul Sperry, who is very well respected journalist. Gaubatz did the investigating for it. And quite frankly, Gaubatz didn’t write a word of the book. and in that sense, it’s kind of a shame his name is on the book because he didn’t write it, Paul Sperry wrote it.

    Even if what that document says is true, so what? It actually doesn’t prove that Obama is working with the Muslim Brotherhood to bring down the US. Also we should keep in mind that the Barbary pirates after all, and when people do bad things, they usually try to find some kind of justification for it. Besides, unless I’m wrong, the Muslim Brotherhood was founded 1928. Long after the That war was over and there were no more Barbary pirates.

    Let’s assume the Brotherhood wants a global caliphate. Why can’t they liberate even the tiny Gaza Strip from Israel? How exactly are the going to take over the mighty US Empire?

    The letter doesn’t prove anything. Islam doesn’t want anything. It isn’t a living thing. Saying that the words of Barbaty pirate proves your claim is, again, like saying the Salem witch trials prove Americans want to burn witches.

    Even in a world filled with silly, ignorant claims about Islam, this one stands out as exceptional. Thanks for the laughs.

  • Ilisha

    Is Pres. Obama using the Muslim Brotherhood to form a global caliphate or are they using him to form one?

    Neither. He isn’t and they aren’t either.

    And, why are all of our presidents ignoring the truth about Shariah/Islamic law?

    What is “the truth” about Shariah?

    Surely we all can discuss this letter written before this nation was founded can’t we?

    Yes, we can.

    …before this nation was founded…

    If the letter was written in 1786, that was after our nation was founded (1776).

    Even if it is a real historical letter, what is it supposed to prove?

    If you really want to learn about Islam, I would suggest you not consult letters of dubious origin (you didn’t link the source), supposedly citing statements from Barbary pirates who lived centuries ago. It’s a bit like learning about the US using the historical records from the Salem witch trials.

    Who said this, to whom, when, why and what has the world ever done about it? Would you consider this statement to be contrary to our Constitution, our way of life, a danger to our National and Homeland Security? Would you think these are words of an enemy? Surely, our government has studied this but where is the reports?
    “The Ambassador answered us that it was founded on the Laws of their prophet, that it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and
    duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as Prisoners, and that every musselman [muslim] who should be slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise.”
    This statement was a part of a March 28, 1786, letter from John Adams and Thomas Jefferson to John Jay, the United States Secretary of Foreign
    Affairs, Continental Congress, concerning their conversation with the Tripoli ambassador as to why his pirates/terrorists hijacked our merchant ships, stole the ships and cargo while holding the sailors for ransom.:
    Why are we failing to mention the obvious in the letter? Here are the main points of the letter:
    a. “it was founded on the Laws of their prophet”;
    b. “that it was written in their Koran”;
    c. “that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners”;
    d. “that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and”;
    e. “to make slaves of all they could take as Prisoners, and”;
    f. “that every musselman [muslim] who should be slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise.”

    Surely we all can discuss this letter written before this nation was founded can’t we?

    I would urge peoplelike BareNakedIslamI to actually examine their own positon, but often wonder if it is worth even saying anything, when you see her/his blog, where the rampant flow of falsehoods and spurious claims is only matched by the level of hatred. Here is a headline from a MArch 11 article

    The MUSLIM IN THE WHITE HOUSE no longer tries to hide his radical Islamic stripes

    With that level of brainwashing will any of the facts make a difference.

    Sue Myrick too busy being a racist while her constituents are facing high unemployment numbers. Way to go Sue nice use of tax payer dollars. Not!

    You’re an idiot. First of all the CAIR lawsuit against the authors of Muslim Mafia was thrown out of court. Myrick never attempted to distance herself from the authors, although she did way too much Muslim a**-kissing in that meeting.
