Congressman Pete King is on a crusade to save America from non-existant ghosts. He has initiated an investigation into the “radicalization” of Muslims in America. According to Charles Kurzman of the University of North Carolina, there were 49 suspected attempts at terrorism in 2009 and 20 in 2010. Of course, these were NOT actual terrorist actions, but fears. American Muslims serve in the armed forces, there has not been any actual event of terrorism although there were a few attempts. Of course, Pete King is Irish and for years has supported the Irish Republican Army which committed dozens of actual terrorist actions. For some reason, he is not conducting an investigation into the radicalization of the Irish American community.
It would be an important investigation if Pete King would investigate his Catholic religion since estimates by BishopAccountability claim over 100,000 Catholic children were abused by priests since 1950. Pete, care to open that door?
