Representative Peter King’s (R-NY) hearing on the radicalization of American Muslims began today and the obstructionist and misinformation campaign of the democrat party was on full display.
Representative Keith Ellison (D-MN) accused the Congress of the United States of ignoring the dangerous acts of “America’s oldest terrorist organization the KKK.” Ellison must be a victim of the public school system. The Ku Klux Klan was investigated by the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) and indeed that focus is partially responsible for breaking the KKK as a mainstream Democrat organization. Racists like Senator Robert Byrd (D–WV) participated in and belonged to the KKK as it had morphed into a dangerous racist fraternal organization working hand-in-glove with the Democrat Party. You would think that a CONGRESSMAN would know the history of Congress and one of the brightest moments of that body when they stood up to organized racism.
HUAC is often criticized for getting diverted from chasing the KKK as in the 30s and 40s they largely focused on the growth of the Nazis and Communist movements in the United States. But the fact remains that they did chase KKK members and really turned up the heat in the 60s.
Ellison’s tearful closing statement was followed by Representative Shelia Jackson Lee (D-TX) trying to slow and disrupt the hearing by changing the rules to allow all members to make political statements. Democrats in Congress have always put up barriers to the investigation of the Ku Klux Klan, Nazis, and Communists. That tradition continues today. Of course, as a Muslim Ellison is authorized by his faith to lie to Christians and apostates.
The battle is joined. Support Representative King.
