Let me ask you a question.
Does the federal government have counter-terrorism units devoted to unearthing Islamic extremists in the U.S.?
Oh. And did the federal government just punish nine individuals for "administrative and leadership failures relating to the career of Maj. Nidal Hasan" who killed more than a dozen soldiers at Fort Hood?
And did legacy media just devote significant coverage to the spread of radical Islam in U.S. prisons?
Yes. Yes. And yes.
Which makes the despicably dishonest testimony of the traitorous Keith Ellison (D-MN) and the horrific Sheila Jackson-Lee (D-TX) all the more egregious.
And I don't call Ellison a traitor because he's Muslim. I call him a traitor because he is one. There can be no other explanation for his behavior or that of the kook named Sheila.
Rep. Pete King is Chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security; and he's holding public hearings on terrorism, not Islam.
Peter King isn't Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who imprisoned innocent Japanese-Americans during World War II.
Peter King isn't falsely accusing Islamists of an incessant series of terror attacks against the United States.
Peter King isn't holding secret hearings in some sort of "star chamber".
He's publicly investigating the known radicalization of young Americans in mosques.
The outrageous, anti-American rhetoric of Ellison and Jackson-Lee should be aired repeatedly in campaign commercials during the 2012 election cycle. They should be defeated and sent packing. Preferably to Somalia for a few months, after which they might appreciate this country a little more.
It's not paranoia if they really are trying to kill you.
