Investigate the Buddhists!

Salon's Glenn Greenwald thinks it "might actually be the most despicable domestic political event of the year."   WaPo reported this morning that a "group of House Republicans is calling for an investigation into whether a leading American Muslim advocacy group tried to "spy" on congressional offices by placing interns on key security committees."

Greenwald responded:  "They stand accused of plotting to influence members of Congress and trying to help interns obtain positions in Congress in order to advance their political agenda.  That's consistent with what virtually every political advocacy group in the nation does; it's normally called activism and democracy."   Pointing to a pie chart, Greenwald noted:
[Muslim] representation on the chart (the green section) is so small they're practically invisible.  Muslims comprise .6% of the American population.  Yet these people are running around screaming about the imminent "Islamization of America" and imposition of Sharia law and calling for criminal investigations because a few interns on Congressional Committees -- American citizens -- might be Muslim and are therefore "spies." 
My reaction?   Well, if you look at Greenwald's pie chart, there are almost as many Buddhists as Muslims in Congress.

Think about it: Buddhists comprise a similarly small fraction of Americans (0.7%), but they too presume to influence US policy.

Imagine what would happen if the Buddhists -- widely believed to be "peace-loving" -- gained influence over Congress.    

What most Americans don't know is that the Buddhist take-over of Congress is already underway.   Regular Jotman readers know that I have the photographs to prove it.
