Rep. Peter King chaired a hearing on radicalization of Islam in America and two Democrats tried to distract and control the hearing using emotional demagogue techniques. The rest of the hearing consisted of mostly rational and informative discussion and testimony. Unfortunately, the media will likely only focus on the emotionalizing of the hearing.
Rep. King recently defended the House Homeland Security Committee's investigative hearings on radical Islamism in the United States by stating: "Eric Holder is not saying he's staying awake at night because of what's coming from anti-abortion demonstrators or coming from environmental extremists or from Neo-Nazis. It's the radicalization right now in the Muslim community...we're talking about a radicalization in this country which is linked to an overseas enemy. This is al Qaeda -- internationally it's attempting to recruit within the United States...it's an international movement with elements here in the United States.
Peter King has been slandered by liberals who quote him as saying there are "too many Mosques in America", when he stated in the Hearing that he actually said there are "too many Mosques in America who do not work with law enforcement"
