Re: “This isn’t a hearing – it’s theater dripping with hate” (Eugene Robinson column, 3-11).

Robinson brands the brave Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., as “McCarthyite” in calling for the House hearings on Muslims in America.

Robinson has once again let his far-left thinking color his opinion in expressing views so far left even for him that its disappointing to read.

What King has done is finally get the topic of extreme American Muslims trying to kill Americans on the front burner. His hearings are long overdue. All the failed attempts by extreme Muslim terrorists to cause death and destruction in America are what happened right before the 9/11 attack by Muslim terrorists.

It should be welcomed by all Americans to have these hearings and find out exactly what’s been going on to get American-born Muslims to turn against Americans, how hate has been fostered and implanted in the minds of these mostly young Muslim men.

Since announcing his hearings, King has been attacked by the left in the media and most cable channels. They seem to be more concerned with protecting the Muslims who are trying to cause another 9/11 or worse.

Hopefully, this time – thanks to the hearings – America will not have to live through another attack.
