Peter King is acting like a thug. A guy like him and his ill-conceived hearings can set back the amazing cooperation our country gets from our law-abiding Muslim American citizens. The only reason we’ve been able to break up these latest few terrorist plots on our land is because of Muslims working with, or for, the FBI and other Homeland Security agencies.
We the peeps means exactly that, WE THE PEEPS. Peter King, what part of WE don’t you understand? Our very strength as a country, the reason why we will never devolve (in spite of the lunatic ranting ofÂ Glenn Beck and his sheep) into the kind of country that Iran and other theocracies like it has become, is in our diversity. There are too many different races, sexes, age groups, countries of origin, and yes, religions.
I can only assume that when King is done with the Muslims, he’ll investigate the Christian Americans who are members of a religion that has a very, very small bunch of radicals organizing Nazi, survivalist, and white supremacist domestic terrorist groups who want to prey on Americans here at home.
