Rep. Peter King (R – NY), new chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, will hold hearings on the so-called radicalization of Muslim Americans probably next month. Who better to call than these two clowns:
According to Politico, possible witnesses may include two critics of Islam popular in right-wing circles that have made “creeping radicalism” and alleged jihad in America a cause célèbre: Dutch critic Ayaan Hirsi Ali and M. Zuhfi Jassar.
They meant Zuhdi, not Zuhfi.
Ali and Jasser cynically exploit islamophobia to promote themselves. Reform of Islam is welcome and necessary but that’s not what these types are doing. Islamic reform should not come on American tanks and it should not dehumanize entire communities.
And the right loves it. The most convenient spokesperson for a cause is one who belongs to the targeted community. Ikhras will be monitoring the hearings as they unfold and analyzing the “testimony” these fools will provide. We’ll hold our noses as we examine the barrage of racist, islamophobic lies these House Muslims will offer. Bring your own barf bag.
Once again, Malcolm X’s prophetic words from nearly 50 years ago eloquently describe situations like this:
Just as the slavemaster of that day used Tom, the house Negro, to keep the field Negroes in check, the same old slavemaster today has Negroes who are nothing but modern Uncle Toms, 20th century Uncle Toms, to keep you and me in check, keep us under control.
