Congressman Peter King (NY-3) as the Committee Chair of Homeland Security is commencing hearings on March 9th to “Examine the Threat of Islamic Radicalization”. In a press release King states that:
“..the Committee will continue to examine the threat of Islamic radicalization, and I will not allow political correctness to obscure a real and dangerous threat to the safety and security of the citizens of the United States.”
What King is conducting is a “witchhunt” similar to that which was done by Joe McCarthy when he targeted people all over the Country who were believed to be communists trying to subvert the safety and security of the citizens of the United States.
If you are deeply concerned by the commencement of these hearings and what it will do to further the fearmongering and perpetuation of islamophobia which has led to the hateful targeting of Muslims and Arabs, and feeds the flames of war in the middle east, then come to a planning meeting to discuss future protests, rallies, pickets and demonstrations to take place not only in front of his offices in Long Island, but in Washington, D.C. when the hearings start.
Our first meeting will be held at:
151 West 26th Street, NY 10001 (212) 924-5877
Tuesday, February 22nd
6:30 pm to 8:30 pm
Please RSVP to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Spread the word! Come and stand on the side of peace and justice
BRING YOUR FRIENDS.
