Jackie Speier on Peter King's Muslim radicalization hearings: "Racist"
SFgate.com ^ | 3/9/11 | Joe Garafalo

Posted on 03/09/2011 9:22:44 PM PST by NormsRevenge

Is there such as thing as "must-see" C-SPAN3? If so, set the DVR for 6:30 a.m. West Coast time for Thursday's Homeland Security Committee, where as we told you the other day, GOP Rep. Peter King is planning to look into the radicalization of U.S. Muslims.

San Mateo's own Democratic Rep. Jackie Speier is a member of that committee and told us Wednesday that she is planning to "call out" King Thursday:

"This is one member's bias that he is now putting forth as the policy of this country and there are going to be many of us who will shout out and call him out on abusing his role as chair and abusing the Congress of the United States for whatever his personal bias is," Speier told us.

"To pinpoint Muslims as if they're the only category --- it's wrong, it's discriminatory, it's racist and inappropriate. Hearings aren't supposed to be judged before they're held. They're supposed to be illuminating," she said.

Speier said Thursday's hearing is all about politics. Specifically, 2012 presidential politics.

Maybe Jackie would prefer we just ignored the hearings.. if she didn't have her sight set on DiFi's seat inthe Senate, that is..

She is right , it is all about politics,, for the Left it's another chance to play 'Race Card' Politics.

Jackie Speir is cracked I should know she is one of my reps here. She survived the likes of Jim Jones bullets in Jones Town and she still thought his commie town was some sort of
utopia. One would think she would have changed her views after she was given a second chance at life but know she did not she still supports commies.

Ms Speier, our Nation is under attack by muslims and at war with muslims. islam declared war on America oh about 15 years ago and has been killing Americans ever since. Now I know you must be aware of this and would really really like to downplay it as much as possible, but the fact remains that islam is evil and an enemy to freedom and liberty and if both are to survive, America must fight back

It’s hard to win a poker game when you only have one card. These RATS wore out the race card long ago.

I thought that Jackie Speier was a soft-porn movie star.

Oh wrong, that’s the smarter one, Donna Speir, the blond. her two boobs are smarter than the one in Congress.

Still, you cannot deny it, the fear of a “RACISM” accusation is what unites the left and right in a common lunacy! RACISM FOREVER! WOO, HOO!

There is more than the usual mau-mauing using the race card.Many pretty solid types such as Ralph Peters go nuts if there is any imputation that there is a systemic problem with Islam and that it represents at least an adversarial threat of not an existential one. What is it that causes this visceral reaction and produces cries of Nazi and other abuse if this topic comes up? Why are so many fairly center right types so defensive about Islam? Five years ago there was similar reactions on this board anytime the problem with mass illegal immigration was raised. That has pretty much disappeared here but I wonder if the same nerve is being hit about this topic. So many who are center right have absorbed so much cultural Marxism in ways they don't even begin to know while in schools or government service. Liberal death wish thinking, white guilt ideology, and post modern nihilism disguised as multiculturalism have been indoctrinated to so many through so many fora that they have had a major impact on how even professional soldiers think about potential or actual enemies. The shorthand for this is ‘Political Correctness will kill us , literally not figuratively.

"To pinpoint Muslims as if they're the only category --- it's wrong, it's discriminatory, it's racist and inappropriate.

Which other categories should be called to testify, Madame Speier? The Amish? The Lutherans? The Jews? The Okies? The Uruguayans?

Please let us be sure to not let the dems McCartyize Peter King. We need to be sure to let the stupid people hear the truth from us in spades.

Everything devolves to race now... I'm just waiting for someone to go racist against middle-aged-female-polish-french-english-scottish-native-american-conservative-sales-people so I can collect my government check.

(sarcasm silly! :- 0 ... help me!)

Respons to Jackie: “And you are a child molester.”
Jackie: “Huh?”
Response: “Drilling a ho;e in a baby’s skull and sucking its brain out is child molesting.”
