Islamophobic GOP Rep Advocates "Infiltrating" American Mosques

Melissa McEwan: Republican Peter King is certain that the US' problems with radical Islam come down to there being too many darn mosques.
This post, written by Melissa McEwan, originally appeared on Shakesville.

Didn't I just write this post? Oh, no. That was A Big White Tent. It's so hard to keep all the bigness and the tentiness of the GOP straight. Speaking of which, it's A Big Straight Tent, too. I don't have a current post on that, but give it a day or so...

Anyway, the Big Christian Tent can only stay so beautifully Christified with lots of maintenance and tools, like New York Congressman Peter King, for instance--who is just certain that the US' problems with radical Islam come down to there being too many darn mosques.
Unfortunately, we have too many mosques in this country. There are too many people who are sympathetic to radical Islam. We should be looking at them more carefully. We should be finding out how we can infiltrate.
...I think there's been a lack of full cooperation from too many people in the Muslim community. And it's a real threat here in this country.
