King's Speech and Hearing
Congressman Peter King's hearing
on radical Islam shows once again (see Wisconsin) the some of the left's contempt for the rule of law. It's precisely hearings and subsequent deliberation that can illuminate an issue. Would that there were hearings on the relocation of ethnic Japanese
in World War II--an hysterical comparison to make: All men are created equal, but each ethnic group is unique (and diverse within itself), and not all religions are essentially whitebread Protestantism. We should keep this in mind as we hear the courageous denunciations of radical Muslims by their fellow American Muslims. (See one Muslim witness's exchange with MC Sanchez, who clearly had contempt for him.) We should also recall the beatings openly loyal Japanese-Americans were subjected to in the relocation centers--not from non-Japanese but from Japanese-Americans who demanded loyalty to the Emperor of Japan.
