Why would Peter King let known Muslim Rep. Keith Ellison testify during his hearings about how all Muslims are terrorists? What a dumb move. All Ellison had to do was tell a simple truth about Muslim Americans, and the whole spectacle was ruined.
Hamdami’s mother, Talat Hamdani, is at the hearings today. She works with September 11th Families for Peaceful Tomorrows, which opposes the hearings.
Hamdani’s mother told Politico last week that she along with two other family members of 9/11 victims had been promised a meeting with King — where she planned to urge him to cancel the hearings — but that he failed to show up at the meeting.
What a scumbag.
By the way, why is there a photo of the World Trade Center burning hanging in that room? Is that Peter King’s personal decorating style? Disgusting. It’ll be unfortunate the next time he engages in an autoerotic asphyxiation fantasy about getting captured by terrorists and accidentally dies. [Think Progress]
