Peter King on Terror: Muslims bad, IRA OK?
A disturbing double standard.
After a decade of U.S. politics dominated by blanket denunciations of terrorism, Rep. Peter King (R-NY) has given several media interviews about his longtime support for the Irish Republican Army and revealed that he believes some forms terrorism are acceptable.
King is in the news right now because he’s holding a hearing Thursday on “radicalization” of U.S. Muslims, and many people have pointed out the contradiction between his defense of Irish terrorism and his opposition to Muslim terrorism.
Has anyone asked him about the Hutaree or Arizona militias yet?
