Skip to comments.MSNBC asks 'Is Rep. Steve King a Muslim?'

Apparently there is a contest going on at MSNBC to see who will emerge as the "face of hate" for the network of insane liberal hate.
Newsbusters' Noel sheppard writes that Lawrence O'Donnell berated Congressman Steve King (R-IA) over President Obama's religious background, and actually asked the Iowa Republican if he was a Muslim.
After treating King like a hostile witness in a murder trial, O'Donnell repeatedly asked King if he had identification proving he was a Christian.
"Should I take you at your word or should I maybe suspect you're a Muslim? Do you have a Christian ID you can show me and prove to me you're a Christian," O'Donnell asked.
Much to his credit, King kept his cool, answering "I think Gods going to ask you not to judge as I am not judging President Obamas religion."
But that was not sufficient for O'Donnell, who asked, "Do you have a Christian ID?"
Even after King informed O'Donnell he had a certificate of baptism, the MSNBC host continued his attack. "How do we know, how do we know you are not a Muslim," O'Donnell asked.
As Sheppard notes, nothing King said would have satisfied O'Donnell. So harsh was the interview, one almost expected to see bright lights and rubber hoses with electrodes attached to a battery.
Maybe O'Donnell is saving that for his next interview with King.
Despite this, the folks at MSNBC must have been proud of O'Donnell's behavior for the video of this entire segment was posted at "The Last Word Blog" with the headline "Is Rep. Steve King a Muslim?"
Sheppard notes this is what apparently passes for "journalism" at MSNBC.

Steve, not Peter King.
If MSNBC insisted, I bet I could produce my baptismal certificate.
Anybody seen O’D carrying a Bible lately? He’s likelyu a closet muzzie issuing projections.
I can too, plus my confirmation certifcate and the marriage certficate with the Priest who married me.
Does a form from my Mohel at my circumcision count?
I think the title needs to be corrected...
just because obama went to church on the day an imam was speaking, doesn’t mean he’s a muslim....
Only thing I’d like to see on MS-LSD, is the first HOST to get PUNCHED OUT on live TV!!!
It’s his own fault, and his own stupidity, for going on any PMSDNC “show”....What did he expect to get out of it, other than abuse, slander, and a soupsong of STDs for sitting in one of their “guest” chairs?
The only problem I see is King going on this pseudo news channel. Why would he go on a zero ratings show with an admitted Socialist and be berated with questions to elicit a sound bite for the lefts consumption? Larry is a very angry nut job. He goes on bitter, crazy speeches. Was King looking to make nice with radical Libs? What was the point of this stupidity on Kings part?
Yes, it does. How do I do that?
According to Stephen King Obama isn’t a Muslim, he’s a Tommyknocker.
It will be interesting to see if this sort of hostility is continued on other programs, and other channels as it might be a ploy, and I wouldn’t put it past the Left as we all have seen them in lock step before most recently over the Gifford shooting.
It could be a tactic that they would drive away Republicans from appearing on their programs, and fill out their agenda with their favored Democrat guests. The “Hosts” of these programs could dismiss Republicans as a bunch of whiners in response to complaints of lack of balance of the MSM interviews.
Will have to watch and see how this all progresses if it does.
with his legislative track record on post-birth aborion (aka infanticide) he is probably neihter Christian nor muslim. Both require a degree of humility, he possesses none
Just another apostate atheist
Just another apostate atheist poser
Just how cool would it be for this idiot to interview the rookie Hussein?
The one taking a name of the prophet’s magic horse in which he rode up into the heavens. Could have stayed with Barry Sotero.
King: What clues tipped you off that I might be a muslim? Or do you have no clue?
You’ve got to be disarming.
King got what he deserved and should have expected, going on *any* PMSDNC “show”.
I don’t feel sorry for him, and shall look twice at anything he says from now on, considering how stupid he has just proven himself to be.
*any* republican that goes on PMSDNC might as well wear a sign saying: “Kick Me, I’m a Retard! I went on PMSDNC!”
