An American Lone Wolf, and yet King gets to rant about fear and loathing.
Maybe if young people had more hope they'd have less hate.

Really? So your argument for why this guy was building bombs with the intent of attacking police and returning military personnel is that he is filled with hate from having no hope?

Yes, that's right, stakeholders of a society don't usually plot to destroy it. On the contrary they become conservatives (the benign kind) insofar as they work to maintain the status quo that maintains them. The disenfranchised on the other hand, hate the status quo and will act against it in direct proportion to the degree to which they are disenfranchised by it. DUH. Which antagonistic ideology, specifically, is used to fill the void left by a broken social contract will vary according to the individual in question. In any case these facts do not excuse or validate anyone's specific crimes but they certainly have an explanatory value with regards to the bulk of them.

As long as King ignores domestic right wing terrorism, nobody takes him seriously.

Left-wingers still cry "Islamophobia" over Nidal Hasan's arrest.

When the OLIGARCHY is afraid they use FEAR. Rep. Peter King is one of their errand boys.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The discouraging part of this failed attempt for Peter King and the Oligarchy, was that the perp's name..........Jose Pimentel. They would have loved the failed attempt be carried out by someone named Mohamed.

Many Muslims converts keep their "Christian" names and have an unofficial Muslim name.

This way they get a twofer. A Muslim and a Latino. It just confirms in the Rs' minds what too many of them have always believed: that brown, foreign people are inherently evil and violent and sadly, they WILL use it in the next year for campaigning. I can guaran-damn-tee that Michele Bachmann will do it, probably Perry and Santorum.

The FBI declined to pursue this case and let the NYPD run with it alone. FBI did not see credible threat to NYC beyond a lone fellow with mental health issues. I personally think Bloomberg admin used the oppty of the arrest to spook folks a bit before the holiday, get people to be on their toes before the big parade and keep the idea out there that "their are eyes everywhere". Not a pure PR stunt but using the press to keep people (both sides) on their toes.

King knows this. He is using the event to be melodramatic. I don't trust his motivations. I much prefer a security force and focus that is a little less loud and about banging the drums and is a bit more clandestine and focused on due diligence.

A lot is happening out there that we don't know about. We don't need to know about all of it. When Rep. King (and others) do the 'dancing/screaming/whatever noise I can make' routine, they just confuse the dialogue for all of us and probalby make intelligence/security all that much harder.

The biggest threat to this country is not from these terrorists, but from people like Peter King. This self serving bigot will do much more harm to Americans than these terrorist could ever hope to accomplish.

You liberals are the bigots for defending Islamists like Jose Pimentel and Nidal Hasan.

First off, learn what a bigot is. Second, learn what defending means. Third, learn what liberals actually think.

Oh yes of course. If we don't spew constant hate like you, then we must be defending.

AGAIN. Learn what a "bigot" is (you are clearly projecting) and learn what DEFENDING means.

Peter King is obsessed with the false notions that Muslims are the biggest bogey man we have to fear. Be is the horrors of Sharia law, Muslim converts or merely those who want to worship as they want...they are all the same in Peter Kingland. How and why did he get on the Homeland Security Committee?
01:21 PM on 11/21/2011
So what's your excuse for defending Jose Pimentel?

Here's the thing, I dont want Peter King, who supports and is funded by IRA terrorists to be in charge of fighting radicalism.

NYCs 3rd congressional district supports terrorism by voting for Peter King.

He was never funded by the IRA...he used old Irish American emotions in order to get votes. The moment Sinn Fein declared opposition to the Iraq war he broke all links with the party.

I think the biggest threat right now is Peter King.
01:21 PM on 11/21/2011
No surprise, since liberals think the NYPD is a bigger threat than Jose Pimentel.

Did you read the report of the FBI, it was not a serious "threat"... and yes, the NYPD is pretty dangerous.

If something does happen it could happen reguardless of which party is in control.
We need to find our balzzz as a nation again and stop letting people like King and other right wing Fascist deolouges use the "terrorist scare" every time there is an election cycle.

The photo of Rep King makes him look exactly as he sees himself, prosecutor, judge and jury.

Looking down at the accused, you can hear him say "I don't care if you're innocent, I'm declaring you guilty." We all know what follows.
12:43 PM on 11/21/2011
Has he ever said that?

Is he against the principle of presumption of innocence?

He is only against the presumption of innocenece when it is politically advantageous to be so. King is the posterboy for why we need to stop career politicians. Term limits and finance reform will go along way toward regaining our Democracy back for the people and not the 1% who buy and sell BOTH parties like cattle.

There is nothing to guarantee that the returning vets won't exhibit their anger at those that assured them of stop-loss, no body armor, susceptible-to-blast hummers, poor support, and so bite the hands that sent them.
