Today has not been a day for America to rest easy.
Earlier today, Rep. Peter King (R-NY) gaveled to order the start of his Homeland Security Committee to begin his/their investigation of the "the radicalization of the Muslim American community." Not since the days of Sen. Joseph McCarthy (R-WI) have we seen a congressional committee target a specific group of citizens for partisan politcal means.
While there remains a need to remain vigilant to our national security needs, Rep. King's agenda and circus may very well place our country at risk at home and abroad.
I hope that our national family has not lost the lessons of McCarthyism.
