Race hustling congressman: Klan bigger threat than Jihadists.


US Congressman Al Green claimed that decades old “crossburnings” warrant equal attention to present Muslim Jihadists.

From Washington Times…

Congressman Al Green, Texas Democrat, found himself in a heated debate with Republican members on the Homeland Security Committee on Thursday over whether or not the Ku Klux Klan should be considered a terrorist organization. Rep. Peter King, New York Republican and chairman of the committee said, “There is no equivalency of threat between al Qaeda and Neo-Nazis, environmental extremists, and other isolated madmen.” Peter King continued, “Indeed, by the Justice Department’s own record, not one terror-related case in the last two years involved neo-Nazis, environmental extremists, or anti-war groups.”

Congressman Dan Lungren, California Republican, followed up on the issue saying: “I would say to those who criticize us for a singular focus here that I have been on panels that have investigated the continuing presence of Nazi war criminals in the United States,” Lungren explained. “I’ve been there where we’ve examined the Ku Klux Klan…and skinhead groups and militias.”

I caught up with Mr. Green following the close of Thursday’s terror hearing and asked him about Attorney General Eric Holder’s remarks about 126 terror indictments where the majority of the indictments were jihad related. In a USA Today op-ed piece written by Congressman King, the lawmaker from New York notes:

Attorney General Eric Holder has said that radicalization of Americans is something that keeps him awake at night. As he noted, 126 people have been indicted on terrorist-related charges in the past two years, including 50 U.S. citizens. The great majority of those charged are violent jihadists.
