Hearing test

Randall Smith March 23rd, 2011

New York Rep. Peter T. King recently held congressional hearings titled “The Extent of Radicalization in the American Muslim Community and that Community’s Response.”

Los Angeles has a large Muslim population and L.A. County Sheriff Lee Baca said that there was nothing to support King’s claims of non-cooperation by American Muslims. President Reagan said “America is a shining city upon a hill whose beacon light guides freedomloving people everywhere.”

We won the Cold War because we had moral authority. Soviet spies actually defected to the United States because they felt that we were morally superior to the Soviet way of life.

I think that beacon is starting to dim with these hearings that are simply political grandstanding and a start to a possible 2012 Senate run.
