L.I. Congressman Peter King is the man behind the current hearings being held in the House about the radicalization of Muslim Americans. An issue congressman Kings feels strongly about Muslim terrorism !
King wants to use his position in the house to grandstand , demonize ,and exploit the rumors about the Muslim community . As once infamous Wisconsin Senator Joe McCarthy did back in 1950. McCarthy held his hearings on Communism , which he called “The Red Scare” ! The hearings were just a means to intimidate , scare, and ruin the reputations of many public personalities McCarthy didn’t like. Many of the personalities were from Hollywood.
As McCarthy before him, King is full of shit ! The man who so hates terrorism that he want to spend tax payer money to investigate the Muslim community , is himself a supporter of terrorism . That’s the bullshit ! In the 1980’s King was a strong supporter of the IRA. Known for their terrorist attacks on England. Killing and harming many innocent civilians .
Congressman King gave speeches defending , even fund-raising for the IRA. King once said “if civilians are killed in an attack on a military installation, it is certainly regrettable ,but I will not morally blame the IRA for it”. Some morals he got !
I guess King gives true meanings to the saying, ” One man’s freedom fighter, is another man’s terrorist”!
