The news from Northern New Jersey is focusing on mainly two things these past 24 hours, the massive flooding that has swept the area and the ongoing fight between Peter King and the Muslim community./ Well since Hillsdale is indeed right next door, I should mention that the hot spot for news crew is the Ki=ngs parking lot. At first glance people would think it would b e good business for Kings, but then again showing the parking lot filled with water isn't exactly putting out the welcome mat. I have yet to ride my scooter down the road to check the brook.
Alright now down to business even if you totally disagree with Peter King, you have to say he has guts. The problem here, as with most government policies is if people sense their rights are going away, they'll jump up and down and scream. However once it's explained and parts implemented, then things calm down. King has struck a nerve with people who feel he's targeting a certaain group, the question is why wasn't this done before 9/11? Time aftwer time every survey shows Muslim extremism is a great threat to national security. It was said after 9/11 there would be a major backlash against Muslims, those claims were vastly overblown, just like they are now. King's actions don't make him a bigot, they make him sensible. The problem is nobody really wants to admit it. They'll be labelled a bigot \also, it's stupid. Tjhese folks need to accept the fact in the short term, they'll be demonized, but in the long run will be praised. The sad reality is, it might take another terrorist attack to prove these people right!
