CBS Accuses Peter King of 'Poisoning the Atmosphere' of Radical Islam Hearings.
Media Research Center ^ | March 11, 2011

Posted on 03/12/2011 1:18:24 PM PST by T.L.Sink

On CBS Evening News, congressional correspondent Nancy Cordes implied that the House Homeland Security Committee hearing on the radicalization of American Muslims was simply a political show staged by chairman Peter King. She declared that "King's own past assertion that most U.S. mosques are run by radicals" resulted in "poisoning the hearing." She praised the emotional testimony of Rep. Keith Ellison. [Keith "the Muslim from Minnesota" Ellison took his oath of office on the koran and once wrote an article defending Louis Farrakhan against charges of anti-Semitism. He admits to close ties and collaboration with the Nation of Islam. In 2006, the Minnesota State Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board subpoenaed and fined him for late and improper filings.]

For those who saw the hearing on C-span, they witnessed Ellison crying, slobbering and blubbering over a Muslim who died on 9/11. It was quite a display of staged sentimental shlock that no doubt played well for those Democrats (and there were many) who never wanted to confront a very serious matter of investigation with any seriousness in the first place.

Republicans on the committee should have all clapped and yelled, “Author, Author!” to Ellison after his performance.

Dan Rather: "Oh, Mr. President, if only you knew how
much I and your other servants at CBS support, worship, bow, grovel and kneel to you.
We have faithfully covered up all your past atrocities, Mr. President.
And for all future Husseins, we will continue our (unwarranted) attack our own Bush."

At this point i don’t need Representative King nor anyone else to convince me about the religion of peace and their ultimate goals.
I am a Christian and they want me dead.

Did Ellison cry about any non-Muslims that got killed?

Which is to say they are like the upstanding citizens who watched as the KKK strung people up. They would not do the dirty work themselves but they will hold the coats of those who do.

A moderate muslim is one who will not pull the trigger himself.

Nancy Cordes needs to attend one of these mosques and then tell wether they are radical or not. Otherwise, it is just cBS.

Even better - let her spend a few months in an Islamist culture where women are chattel property. Let’s see how loudly she demands the rights of women then!

As Bernie Goldberg said, when you’re in the proverbial hole you don’t keep digging. But that’s the race to the bottom that CBS and its cable cousins CNN and MSNBC are in!

Exactly. And doesn’t it make you feel safe and secure that we’re relying on the likes of Obama, Napolitano and Holder to prevent that?

Just saw a video of Keith Ellison interviewed by Bill Maher about his decision to convert to Islam from Catholicism. Ellison said he became interested in “social justice.” Jeez! Is it possible to be any deeper in denial than that???!! This man is deep in denial and spiritual deception. Pray for him!

Saw a replay of it, total crap, and as someone above said, did he cry for all the non-muslim first responders who died on 9/11..or any of the 343 firefighters??

Nice to see the CBS congressional correspondent hiding her liberal bias so well./s

Right - when I watched the hearings I was appalled by some of the “reasoning” some of Democrats demonstrated. Yes, I’m a conservative partisan but it goes far beyond my bias. We used to have some intelligent liberals who were strong on national security. Men like Henry “scoop” Jackson come to mind. Or Joe Lieberman who was driven out of his party recently for holding those views. We may have disagreed with such on domestic politics but they were patriotic Americans. Today, on the other hand, we see liberals with NO ABILITY. It was shocking to hear some of the infantile rhetoric that they were mouthing. To me, such ignorance of the serious domestic Islamic threat we face by some elected federal representatives borders on criminal negligence.

Or put another way, a moderate Muslim is one who will meet you half way. If he sees you drowning twenty feet from land, he’ll toss you a ten foot rope.

“I am a Christian and they want me dead.”

Is it all right if I borrow that for my tagline? I’ll trade you that for these:

“O Muslim! My bullets are dipped in pig grease!”

“Destroy Mecca and you kill Allah!”

“I’m a free man, O Muslim! There’s nothing you can do about it!”

Anyway, Rep. King is over the target and taking flak. What’s next, are they going to bring on some weeping hijabi Muslimahs wailing, “I am victimized because of the way I dress! Why are you doing this to us!!?”

In fact, count on it.

That must have been a show to remember: a black Muslim with a white atheistic religion-hater who is the son of a Jewish mother! It must have been frustrating for both of them! For whom could they express their natural hatreds without possibly causing some offense? Surely, they agreed to focus their venom and animosity and demonize some “other.” Maybe George Bush would have been the prefect target! Am I close?

Actually, it’s around two billion of us. Which, if even a small number of us decide to go all Crusade on their a**es, makes the whole proposition of a global Caliphate sort of “iffy”. I think I’d look rather spiffy in a tunic and cross. You can tell by my name that I like swords, but those college era Kendo classes need refreshing. May have to use something more modern and noisy instead.

This administration and mass media is the most treasonous thing I’ve ever witnessed; the sad thing is that I know I have not seen seen the worst of it yet.

“I am a Christian and they want me dead.”

I’d like everyone in America to have a bumper sticker of this. About time folks take their heads out of the sand and notice what may be going on.
