The same Peter King who helped raise money for the IRA is very, very upset about how dirty fucking civil liberties hippies and That Librul Media are stopping us from stopping Muslims and their terrible terror:

In response to this week’s deadly shootings at Canadian Parliament, perpetrated by a now-deceased Muslim convert, Rep. Peter King (R-NY) believes the United States should go “all out” in its surveilling of the Muslim community, placing blame on media “morons” for the currently limited amount of spying conducted.

Appearing Thursday on NewsmaxTV’s America’s Forum, the Republican lawmaker declared it’s not at all a “coincidence” that after ISIS militants suggested Western allies carry out attacks in North America, two assaults were carried out against the Canadian military.

King urged the U.S. to respond by heightening its domestic surveillance programs. “We can have all the technology in the world, the fact is we have to find out what’s happening on the ground in these Muslim communities and we can only do that through increased surveillance,” he told host J.D. Hayworth (once a congressman himself).

The New York Republican suggested the media is to blame for limiting his precious surveillance efforts:

What the NYPD used to until those moron at the New York Times editorial board, and Associated Press, the American Civil Liberties Union went after them, the fact is we have to find what people are thinking. We have to find out who the radicals are, we have to find out what’s going on in the mosques which are often incubators of this type of terrorism.

Can you help us out?
