New York, NY - Bloomberg: Rep. King's Radical Islam Hearings Not Right
New York, NY - Mayor Michael Bloomberg says a New York congressman’s planned hearings on radical Islam are not appropriate.
Rep. Peter King said in an opinion piece in Sunday’s Newsday that he intends to “break down the wall of political correctness” in the debate about what he calls Islamic radicalization.
Bloomberg was asked Monday about King’s plans.
The mayor said he does not agree with King and said the hearings are not appropriate.
The mayor was among the first and strongest defenders of the right for Muslims to build a mosque in lower Manhattan, near ground zero.
King is a Republican from Long Island. Bloomberg is a Democrat-turned-Republican-turned-independent.
