Incoming senior director of communications at the National Security Council, Crowley has promoted the anti-Muslim conspiracy theory that Huma Abedin is a Muslim Brotherhood operative
Monica Crowley is a conservative radio and television personality. She is regularly featured on Fox News, and serves as a columnist and staff editor for The Washington Times. Crowley has proved more than willing to not only associate with staunch anti-Muslim figures and organizations, but to join them in peddling anti-Muslim conspiracy theories.
- Crowley received the Center for Security Policy’s 2012 “Mightier than the Pen” award.
- She attended the anti-Muslim David Horowitz Freedom Center’s “Restoration Weekend” in 2012, 2014 and 2016.
- During the 2016 “Restoration Weekend,” Crowley lamented that the U.S. refugee resettlement program and political elites admitted “[w]aves of Muslim immigrants who refuse to assimilate and inflict all kinds of threats on your national security from within.”
- Crowley promoted the anti-Muslim, McCarthy-esque conspiracy theory that Huma Abedin, a longtime aide to Hillary Clinton, is a Muslim Brotherhood operative.
- Frank Gaffney, one of the main proprietors of the anti-Muslim Huma Abedin conspiracy theory, lauded Crowley’s appointment in the Trump administration, saying she will “help Trump bring back ‘Morning in America.’”
- Crowley has appeared on Frank Gaffney’s program “Secure Freedom Radio” numerous times.
