Terrorist Supporting REPUBLICAN Congressman Isn’t A Fan Of Ted Cruz

Peter King, Republican from Long Island thinks Ted Cruz “is a fraud” when it comes to the ObamaCare CR fight. He’s also running for the GOP nomination for President.

Here’s something you should know about King and factor it in evaluating anyone who would quote him approvingly: He’s an unapologetic supporter of terrorists. This is King talking about the IRA.

“We must pledge ourselves to support those brave men and women who this very moment are carrying forth the struggle against British imperialism in the streets of Belfast and Derry,” Mr. King told a pro-I.R.A. rally on Long Island, where he was serving as Nassau County comptroller, in 1982. Three years later he declared, “If civilians are killed in an attack on a military installation, it is certainly regrettable, but I will not morally blame the I.R.A. for it.”

In between that first statement in 1982 and the second one three years later King’s friends in the IRA tried to kill Margret Thatcher. 

I’m Irish too, don’t fall for King’s blarney.

I blog about politics and hockey because I sort of understand those things. I'd blog about women but I'll never understand them.

  1. And don’t let the “R” by his name fool you either. Long Island Republicans by and large are as corrupt, if not more so, than their “colleagues across the aisle. As I read and hear his comments from 30 years ago in support of the IRA, his stance against radical Islam infiltrating the US seems more and more a political move to try and erase his past.

    No soap. He’s a crook and a liar. Not to be trusted at all.

  2. … and King is also in favor of getting rid of Obamacare (albeit using a different method than Cruz) – so, therefore, using your logic, the idea of getting rid of Obamacare is suspect because of poorly reasoned, reckless statements King made in the past?

  3. There has never been an entitlement that was scrapped once it took root. Never. In any case, if you’re in favor of repealing Obamacare, there’s no logical reason not to do anything and everything available politically/procedurally at your disposal whenever the chance arises.

    King, like the rest of the GOP establishment (now a wing of the Democrat Party), is just doing a fan dance. They like big government and they hate real conservatives who want to dismantle the leviathan… which just happens to be their source of money and power.

  4. Guy’s a loathsome blowhard.

  5. When I saw Weiner make King look like he had a shit sandwich in his mouth, that’s when I knew he is a lightweight. His opinions regarding muslim terrorists and ObamaKare are correct but, as J.J. above, says, it’s a “fan dance”.
    King wants to get to the same place as ObamaKare with a different label.
    As to the IRA stuff, he’s no different than Byrd was if you recall what Bubba had to say about him.
