Only one problem -- Rep. King himself used to be a radical supporter of IRA terrorism. From today's NY Times:
Rep. Peter King wrote:"We must pledge ourselves to support those brave men and women who this very moment are carrying forth the struggle against British imperialism in the streets of Belfast and Derry [...]
If civilians are killed in an attack on a military installation, it is certainly regrettable, but I will not morally blame the I.R.A. for it."
Rep. King was thrown out of a Belfast courtroom by a judge who called him "an obvious collaborator". In 1984, the US Secret Service investigated him as a national security risk. He refuses to apologize for his longstanding support for IRA terrorism, which resulted in the deaths of nearly 2000 people.
"I understand why people who are misinformed might see a parallel. The fact is, the I.R.A. never attacked the United States. And my loyalty is to the United States."
This man is a disgrace.
