Skip to comments.MSNBC asks 'Is Rep. Steve King a Muslim?'
Posted on 02/10/2011 11:24:13 AM PST by FredJake
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!”
I guess this means it’s OK now to ask if Obama is a Muslim. O’Donnell shows us the way.
Continues? O’Donnell is just trying to catch up with the rest of the foaming at the mouth, PMSDNC mob of Journolister gang rapists.
You could be most correct over my assessment as I don’t watch television period, and depend upon my information about what is going on from my wife who watches some, but not much.
Trying to out hate each other....lol It’s a sad day, but, that’s exactly what it looks like.
Why any conservative or Republican wouldn't get up and walk out when they started this crap is also beyond me.
I saw part of this. King just should have laughed in Crazy Larry’s face. O’Donnell is really an unbalanced moron.
this is the tactic of the communist and racist Left though, such as ODonnell as the perfect example.
True, religion is self-professed. However, you also have to look at the evidence.
Obama’s father was Muslim, as are his brothers, grandmother, etc.
Obama attended a Muslim school in Indonesia, where he admits in his own book that he studied the Koran. How many Catholic school kids studies the Koran.
Obama mentioned in his book that the sound of the call to prayer was one of the most beautiful in the world.
It’s not just self-profession of religion, it’s EVIDENCE. If King did all the things above, then yes, that is a fair question to ask him if he was Muslim. ODonnell himself is showing his racism, as he is treating Muslim as if it’s a bad thing, like Obama would HAVE to deny it.
Racist, intolerant Democrats.....how can we manage to succeed as a diverse strong country with them?
If you ever need to correct the title, the fastest way is to hit the abuse button and report what needs correction.
He should have mentioned Rev Wright. 20 years in attendance.
That’s usually a debate stopper.
But what does it make him if he went to Rev Wrights Church for 20 years.
I watch very little TV, but have seen short clips of O’Donnell. I would be punching his lights out within minutes if I sat down with him. And it would be worth the penalty.
His response should have been simple.
“If you must judge me, judge me on my actions. Are they Christian or Muslim? Do I talk up the Muslim religion and talk down the Christian religion? Do I quote the Qur’an flawlessly and miquote the Bible? Do I embrace the hostile Muslim nations and turn my back on our Christian-nation allies? Judge me by my actions.”
That would have been my response.
That would be an excellent response!
Either we talk to one another or we start killing one another. Since killing is generally unacceptable (at least for the moment) we need to continue to talk. Having the cajones to walk into the lion’s den and calmly confront a hostile force is the sign of courage and maturity.
This interview demonstrates the leftist as a babbling moron and the republican as civil and reasonable.
Chalk up another one for our side.
