You're going to have to investigate yourself first, ma sharia amour!
From the Weekly Standard:
"...the [Washington] Post reminds readers of the Irish-American King's past support of the Provisional Irish Republican Army during the height of the so-called "Troubles" in Northern Ireland:
In 1985, the Irish government boycotted the St. Patrick's Day parade in New York City, the biggest celebration in the Irish-American calendar. The cause of its umbrage was Peter King, that year's grand marshal and someone the Irish government said was an "avowed" supporter of a terrorist organization, the Irish Republican Army.
King, then a local politician on Long Island, was one of the most zealous American defenders of the militant IRA and its campaign to drive the British out of Northern Ireland. He argued that IRA violence was an inevitable response to British repression and that the organization had to be understood in the context of a centuries-long struggle for independence."
"From his days as the elected Nassau County comptroller in the early 1980s, King has spoken out for the IRA, a nationalist group that waged a bloody bomb-and-bullet campaign for three decades in an effort to drive the British out of Northern Ireland. To King and other supporters, the IRA volunteers were freedom fighters. But to others, including many Irish Americans, the Provisionals (as the main IRA group was known) were terrorists.
In 1982, the New York Republican told a pro-IRA rally on Long Island, "We must pledge ourselves to support those brave men and women who this very moment are carrying forth the struggle against British imperialism in the streets of Belfast and Derry," according to an extensive account in the New York Times that traced King's IRA ties. A few years later, King said, "If civilians are killed in an attack on a military installation, it is certainly regrettable, but I will not morally blame the IRA for it."
Oh irony of ironies! Do these people not know their own histories? What they've said and done, and which terrorist organizations they've supported? Is King actually itching to start a witch hunt in which he himself could be subpoened to give testimony about his ties to terrorism? And didn't you just love that passage about fighting against "British imperialism?"
Jeebus! Did Rep. King pick that sentiment up while living in Kenya, Indonesia, fighting the Belfast Irish Mau-Maus?!
Calling Rep. King! Oh Mr. King! Tea Partier Mike Huckabee is on the line! And he has a question about British imperialism for you!!!
ZOMG! Rep. King--not just a terrorist sympathizer, but he may not be "one of us," either!
Someone, quick! Give Megyn Kelly a terrorist fist bump!
BUT WAIT! THERE'S MORE!
"emptywheel" over a FireDogLake gets further into the King hypocrisy:
"Peter King would still be in prison if the US had treated his material support for terrorism as it now does, with sentences that can amount to a life sentence. Instead, the raging hypocrite is using the Congressional seat he owes, in part, to his earlier embrace of terrorism to sow bigotry and hatred–and to make the cooperation of the Islamic community, which plays a key role in identifying real extremists, more difficult."
