The King hearings have been compared to McCarthyism, but McCarthy went after political ideology not racial and ethnic groups, that was Hitler. New York Republican Senator Peter King is using tax dollars to go on an Islamophobic witch hunt in the United Sates. Peter King supported by the right wing will go down in history with the infamous like Goebels and McCarthy
The narrative in the United States is disturbing. Take a look at the Center for American Islamic Relations (CAIR), a wonderful group. The front page is full of refuting terrorism. The sad reality is that one people group is on the defense against such things to the extent that they have to publicly refute the prejudice assumptions from the masses. I do not see conservative sites being forced to state they are not terrorists. Maybe if we called the terrorism they bring to the world in their holy wars they may have to go on the defense. The big difference is that CAIR does not support terrorism where as the GOP does only under pretty names that legalize and self justify their murder and destruction. The U.S. doesn’t have ‘suicide bombers’ their bombers stay behind computers so they can distance themselves from the lives they are taking. It helps with the dehumanization of their victims. All Terrorists are Muslims…Except the 94% that Aren’t
King and his ilk are hellbent on going after Muslims in the U.S. when only 6% of terrorists are Muslim. Even Jewish extremism which is at 7% is more than Muslim extremism. How often do we hear of the threat of Jewish Extremism? Well outside of Nazi Germany? These numbers biased because they are coming from FBI data. This is the FBI data that does not count it’s action of terror. This is the same U.S. gov that does not record the numbers of innocents it kills. This is the same government that does not keep tally of the victims of it’s Police or Military.
As the demonization of a people group increases the state has seen fit to go after them to make them answer for the prejudice views against them despite the facts the prejudice supersedes the reality in a call for witch hunts.
