Rep. Peter King: “90% of Terrorist Attacks Committed by Muslims”

Rep. Peter King: “90% of Terrorist Attacks Committed by Muslims”

Rep. Peter King is banking his political legacy on hearings targeting the Muslim American community and the overblown threat of “homegrown terrorism.” To say that Peter King is well known for his animus to Muslim Americans would be a gross understatement; this has been revealed numerous times not just through the hearings but also through King’s statements and writings, (such as “there are too many Mosques in the USA”).

King is continuing his foray into anti-Muslim propagandizing, this time going on Fox News and spewing the false claim that “90% of terrorist” attacks in the USA are committed by Muslims. The fear-mongering is clearly heightened by the way in which King frames his claim:

What I am very concerned about is that while the overwhelming majority of Muslims are good people, the fact is even though Muslims are 1 percent of the population, almost 90 percent of the terrorist crimes are carried out by the Muslim community. And there are not enough people in the community willing to step forward and speak out against this and cooperate with law enforcement.

Notice the hollow disclaimer at the beginning, statements about how “Muslims are good people” precede many anti-Muslim rants.

Our most popular article, All Terrorists are Muslims…Except the 94% that Aren’t went a long way in dispelling such notions; i.e. reality is far different. The graph below reproduced by Eli Clifton of Think Progress goes further in dispelling the lies brought up by Congressman Peter King:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It is unbelievably irresponsible for Rep. Peter King to nonchalantly speak in this manner, and the surreal part of all this is that he “Chairs” the House Subcommittee on Homeland Security.

Rep. Peter King’s legacy will not be one of a defender of America or the Constitution but rather more akin to the way we remember Sen. McCarthy from the 1950′s (he led a witch hunt against “Communists”). King will be remembered in history as the inheritor of the mantle of bigotry, divisiveness and sick political populist tactics.

  1. Obviously this is a mouthpiece of that horribly dishonest Southern Poverty Law Center.

    Rep King is absolutely correct in his statements outing Muslims in their bid to conquer the world and enslave mankind under the rule of a psychotic Caliphate.

    The Southern Poverty Law Center, Morris Dees, has never seen a truly totalitarian, psychotic, mankind-hating; civilization-destroying dogma it didn’t embrace.

    It is ironic that Dees and his minions could pretend to hate Nazi’s but embrace its twin psychotic ideology, Islam.

    What hateful, dishonest, and utterly corrupt people they are.

  2. this guy is an idiot. clearly 90% of terrorist aren’t muslims. just 90% of injuries and fatalities are attibuted to muslim terrorists.

Have your say!
