    GOP Congressman: ‘Increase Surveillance’ of Muslim Community

    Peter King sees the attacks in Massachusetts this week as a wake-up call to local law-enforcement authorities to increase their surveillance and awareness of potential terrorists.

    “Police have to be in the community, they have to build up as many sources as they can, and they have to realize that the threat is coming from the Muslim community and increase surveillance there,” the New York Republican congressman tells National Review.

    “We can’t be bound by political correctness,” adds King, who chairs the House subcommittee on Counterterrorism and Intelligence. “I think we need more police and more surveillance in the communities where the threat is coming from, whether it’s the Irish community with the Westies [an Irish-American gang in New York City], or the Italian community with the mafia, or the Muslim community with the Islamic terrorists.”

    Oh hell no! There are plenty of good moderate muslims in the U.S.

    If police have probable cause to suspect there is a problem in a specific community then by all means do some investigation, but being put under surveillance just for being of the muslim faith is not acceptable. I would prefer that the moderates report the whack jobs and get the process started, but just targeting people due to their faith is not ever going to be acceptable.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    When is Peter King gonna recognize the difference between "political correctness" and the fact that he's just being a dumb ****?
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    he probably won't. ever. that's how it works when you only seek data that supports your theory instead of testing your theory with data.

    don't get me wrong; I'm depressed by this violent bull****, and I find zealotry of all types to be the root cause. however, I doubt that the number of violent Muslims in the US even approaches one percent. what he's suggesting is akin to monitoring all white people in order to catch serial killers.

    In Peter King's defense, in 1995 he advocated rounding up everybody who's last name started with "Mc" and putting them in concentration camps. Oh, he didn't?....Never mind then.

    You are right, we should not used commons sense backed up by statistical evidence, that would be a waste of time
