One of the boyos
One of my daily reads is the informative and entertaining American political blog powerline. This post on Powerline however had me fuming, as it is just one of many in the various American media outlets I have read that excuse the past (?) behaviour of Rep Peter King. King is holding controversial hearings (controversial if you are a terrorist loving liberal) into islamic terrorism in an attempt to discover its penetration into American society and hopefully perhaps find some sort of a resolution to the threat we face from home grown Islamic terrorists. The problem for me however is that King is a long time supporter of the murderers and gangsters that call themselves the IRA. He does so I suppose an attempt to garner votes from the Irish American voters of his district. Stating that nobody feared being killed in Times square by the IRA may be valid but on the streets of Northern Ireland and England the opposite was true. The pic above shows Manchester city centre devastated by an IRA bomb only a couple of hours after I had finished shopping in the soon to be destroyed shops. I don't feel that one gets to choose terrorists....they are all murdering cowardly shits...all of them, and Mr King would do well to reflect upon his past sins.
