Recently in this blog we wrote about Republican Peter King’s hearings on the radicalization of American Muslims.  We called it like we saw it, as state sponsored bigotry.  You can read the previous piece below:

However it turns out not only is it states sponsored bigotry, but the ringmaster, Peter King is also a hypocrite as he is on record supporting the Irish Republican Army, a group that used explosives and killed civilians.  Below are two links, the second a straight up news treatment of the story, but the first is how Jon Stewart took this issue on the Daily Show.
