    Muslim 'radicalization' hearing a success, say Rep. Peter King, Republicans

    By James Oliphant, Washington Bureau

    WASHINGTON -- Rep. Peter King and his fellow Republicans in the House declared their much-criticized hearing into Muslim "radicalization" in America a success, even as detractors slammed it as an "outrage" and "reality TV."

    "Our hearings today were informative and educational and hopefully will have consequences in the Muslim American community," King, chairman of the Homeland Security Committee, told reporters after the more than four-hour hearing on Capitol Hill on Thursday.

    Well I hope this article meets the guidelines. I'm not sure why a bonafide newspaper feels the need to wrap the word radicalization in quotation marks.

    I watched the whole hearing and found it very enlightening. The Democrats to a man made fools of themselves as far as I'm concerned. They are complete slaves to the idiocy of political correctness. I am convinced that if they were captured and tortured by an "Islamist" as they are now calling Islamofascist jihadis they would apologize for not holding still.

    1) Perhaps you're not aware what a gaping hypocrite Peter King is. He vocally supported the IRA.

    2) Perhaps if Peter King and other fringe-righties like yourself were ever harassed by a paranoid overzealous peace officer -- cavity searched by a dimwitted Barney Fife, you would see how damaging blatant fear-mongering is.

    3) Your belief that people are actually captured and tortured in the U.S. shows how far removed from reality you are.

    These hearings are a tremendous success for all the racists, xenophobes and bigots in this country. The rest of us should not be celebrating.

    Like these racists, xenophobes and bigots who passed this 2007 law?

    Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Or maybe Ockham's just attempting to point out hypocrisy where he sees it...

    Don't you get it? The terrorists wanted this.

    ironically, you sound pretty intolerant of King's position.

    I agree with some of what you're saying Guy. I'm don't believe it was by design though.
