On march 10, Peter King, the chairman of the House Homeland security commitee is holding Hearings on Radicalization of Islam. These Hearings are reminiscent of the Mccarthy hearings, The pourpose is to Investigate the entire Muslim community on the basis that a hanful of Muslims might become radical terrorists. This seems like a prime example of Republican Hysteria towards muslims. It doesent suprise me that King is in full suport of nutcase John Boehner. Acorrding to King there is a serious threat inside the Islamic comunity, and even though it is a very small percentage. This kind of .behavior from politicians is fueling the Anti-Muslim Hysteria that is sweeping this nation.
I find it funny that Congressman King Is investigating the Muslim community for links to terrorism, saying that He is a firm Supporter of the IRA, an organization that is labled as a terrorist group internationaly. Why is a man who supports terrorism, the head of a committe on homeland security. Obviously this hearing has nothing to do with terrorism, since King supports a terrorist group, It is all about bigotry.
It is sad that in the 21st century our country is reverting back to 1950’s cold war hysteria. These hearings are not Just Immoral, and stupid, they are Unconstitutional, and threrfore illegal.. Istill Remember Bush claiming that this is not a war on islam, only to say a couple years later that this is a war on Radical Islam. They might as well just drop the radical part. The christian right is waging political was against islam in the United states. Right now our pollitical system is treading on dangerous waters with thier tea party political agenda. These kind of Politicians care nothing about the safety of this country, they are Just trying to prepetuate a holy war. This Is exactly why politics and religion do not mix, and why we must defens th 1st amendment.
