Congresswoman Equates Islamic Terrorism to Militant Christians

I could have titled this, "The Assisted Suicide of America."

Representative Peter King, R-New York, and now chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee has, since being appointed as chair, begun hearings on homeland security and those who present the greatest danger to our security.

You would think this would be something that lawmakers could kind of agree upon in that the terrorists are respecters of none--they kill Democrats and Republicans.

You would be dead wrong.

King conducted another round of hearings earlier this week in which Representative Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, in anger equated "Christian militants" to Islamic terrorists. The objections to "looking into" or "studying" Islamic Terrorism took on an unbelievable tone.

Jackson Lee compared Verne Jay Merrell, who set off the bombs in Spokane near a newspaper office and an abortion clinic, with organized international Islamic terrorism.

Please know, I do not condone any violence, under any circumstances, by anyone. Not Christians, not Muslims, not Blacks, not whites---nobody. It's wrong and must addressed with justice, as was the case with Merrell.

But shouldn't reasonable people see some difference between a Verne Merrell and organized international Islamic terrorism?

When police professionals from New York and Los Angeles told the lawmakers that young inmates were being radicalized to Islamic terrorism in our prisons and called it an "evolving threat," it is difficult to grasp the response of Rep. Jackson Lee and other liberals.

Here's what they said, what Rep. King said, an article published by Andrew Breitbart on the subject and how we are committing assisted suicide in this country.

When Representative Jackson Lee and her colleagues heard the report from law professionals, they actively argued over the true meaning of "radicalized" and said this discussion was "racist" and they should be focusing on, "Broader issues like--gangs, unfair sentencing practices that target young black men, and other extremists, including white supremacists."

King told them they had chaired this committee for the past four years and had addressed none of those issues.


America is committing assisted suicide, administered by the masters of political correctness.

Look at the progression:

Christmas Tree = Holiday tree. Thomas Jefferson prohibits it. No, the Constitution prohibits it.
Support illegal immigration = Compassion.
Oppose illegal immigration = Racism. Hate.
Defend natural marriage, DOMA = Bigotry. Hate. Intolerance. Extreme. Fundamentalism.
Defend Life and its sanctity = Anti woman. Anti choice. Narrow. Out of touch. Extreme.
Identify Muslim terrorists = Racial profiling. Racism. Intolerance.

And so it goes.

Following an earlier hearing conducted by Rep. King with similar responses, Andrew Brietbart, who published the Planned Parenthood sting videos and most recently broke the Anthony Weiner story, has published, "Move Along, Mullahs Say, Nothing To See Hear".

There are a number of contributors, some Muslims. I have linked the story here. Take a moment and read it.

Be Informed. Be Vigilant. Be Discerning. Be Prayerful.

  1. I saw a clip of Sheila Jackson comments . Now here is a represntative with an idealogical problem if I ever seen one .

    In pakistan there is a bigger percentage of their population that supported Bin Ladin then in this country that supports Sarah Palin . If the media treated this issue with half of the srutiny that it does with an unelected attractive pro life conservative woman gets we would be better informed at least . And yes Muslims are dealing with prejudice and having their religion and lives unfairly attacked at times . But what that has to do with comparing people who pray in churches and those who burn down churches is another thing .

    Sheila get a life .
    Also Gary you too, whats wrong with supoporting immigration or the people and families that are here who came here under the worse home situations . yes they did it illegally , and I agree there should be some method of allowing them to be legal , but yet not without some kind of penalty . But those folks are desperate , reminds you a little of a few folks coming out of Egypt ?

    I am pro life and pro immigrint . I don't see the difference ? I like the folks who are concerned about the debt , but Christians need not be tied to political parties , just their conscience . God is compassionate , I am just trying to learn to be through Him . You can be demonized for any oof those stands you listred . Think what it is like to be a gay kid in a public school , or a gay kid struggling with his sexuality . Regardless hearing all the rhetoric from the left or roght is not helping him or her , perhaps God is more concerned about the individual heart , as if God needs the republican party to uphold his Kingdom .


  2. The hearing should have been on Extreme
    Religious Fundamentalism and Terrorism.

    Don't fool yourself Extreme Christian Fundamentalists are just as capable of committing terrorism acts as are Extreme Muslim Fundamentalists.
