Peter King leading the blind.

What with all the Kingness about THE GREAT MUSLIM THREAT rising again from the pits of paranoia we thought it wise to list:
2009 Richard Poplawski, racist, kills 3 police officers
2009 Scott Roeder, anti-abortionist, kills phusician
2009 James von Brunn, right-wing wxtremist, kills guard at D.C.s Holocaust Museum
2009 Major Hasan, Virginia-born Muslim, kills thirteen
2010 Joseph Stack, tax protester, kills self and IRS manager by plane crash
[NOTE: more facts can be found in the Johnstons Archive and other databases.]
And then there are the school rampages . . .
We end up with a list that belies Representative King's distorted view of where most of our violent threats come from. This is not the time for knee-jerk, quick answer, Islamophobic rhetoric that further alienates young people.
It is the time to elect officials who will lead us to rational study of problems and sensible legislation that will move us, however painfully slowly, to more peaceful tomorrows.
