Skip to comments.Peter King Supported the IRA Before Hunting for Terrorists
Posted on 03/09/2011 1:50:08 PM PST by WilliamIII
Before Rep. Peter King was holding hearings into why American Muslims aren't doing enough to stop terrorism, he was cheering on the IRA and absolving them of "moral blame" for their terrorism. In the 1980s and 1990s, King unequivocally supported the militant Northern Irish group despite its history of killing civilians, speaking at protests staged by Noraid, which the U.S. government claimed funneled guns and money to the IRA.

IRA almost killed Margaret Thatcher. They’re not cool people in my book.
Isn’t he Irish? Might have a different perspective and probably saw the civilian deaths as done by non-mainstream IRA. I know many Irish that aren’t (or weren’t) fans of the British
Right, trash and silence anyone with enough courage to cast a light on the scummy left and their fellow traveler Islamic Terrorists.
This is nothing but a hit piece on King. If he had not started investigating muslims, this would have never came out. If it is true.
IRA are nothing but terrorist scum and any fool thinking they are not needs to have a word with themselves and then those families who lost loved one through their terrorist actions.
Old news. It doesn’t speak to his position on this. It is character assassination, and irrelevant.
I don’t care if he beats puppies. Is what he is going after now a just cause or not?
The media empire strikes back...
I’ve lived over there for some time and trust me most Irish think the IRA are scum too.
It was all about money laundering, protection money , smuggling etc.
The IRA trained with the PLO, they have been in bed together for years.
Irrelevant to the 1300 year jihad of Islamic conquest of the West.
Islam is not compatible with these United States.
Is there any evidence that Peter King supported them?
Exactly right, while the IRA are terrorist scum
I also see the media going after him for this but no mention of their messiah obama being pals with another terrorist or talking with MB
Yet again the biased corrupt media cover for the radical left and radical muslims
But I thought he left’s philosophy is “One man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter”...
If it’s true, is biased to report it?
Peter King played an integral role in bringing peace to Ireland. People are just attempting to demonize him for doing the right thing. Although, because the leftist media is so vested in supporting Islamists, I’m not sure how much truth will come out.
It's true! You just read it on the Internet!
it shows how the media will go after him for looking at our threats while ignoring how their messiah obama is pals with other terrorists and has them at his house.
Plus where is the evidence in this article ?
hit piece.. do a bit more digging on why he was acquainted with the IRA... get all the facts... the whole story... his interview on fox this am... King gets it right... the muslims need to be watched...
