The New McCarthyism

New York GOP Congressman Peter King, as the new head of the House Committee on Homeland Security, will hold hearings on the "radicalization" of some American Muslims.

Here's the money quote from his Op-Ed in Sunday's Newsday:
As chairman of the Homeland Security Committee, I will do all I can to break down the wall of political correctness and drive the public debate on Islamic radicalization. These hearings will be a step in that direction. It's what democracy is all about.
Next step will be to hold hearings about who does business with the American Muslim community. Then who has lunch with them, then who drives past mosques in America. Better watch out.
