I have a friend on Facebook whose feed has informed me of things I did not know about her before: she’s a birther, Republican, anti-gay, pro-breastfeeding, anti-“birth rape” advocate, pro-gun… You get the picture. Obviously over the last two weeks she’s been very pro-Chick-Fil-A and we’ve had some debates about her position on the issue vs mine. It’s been… informative.
Today she posted a graphic that (paraphrased) said if you boycott C-F-A for funding “hate groups” but support Obama, you’re a hypocrite because he has funded (to the tune of $1.5 billion) a group in Egypt called Muslim Brotherhood who don’t allow women out in public unchaperoned and who put homosexuals to death.
I know NOTHING about MB, their treatment of homosexuals (after Googling, I have the impression that they are very oppressive towards women), and most of all, Obama’s relationship with them and possible funding of them. The $1.5 billion showed up on countless blogs and news sources, but none of them were even pretending to be impartial and I couldn’t find a legit source for it.
What’s the truth here?
