In an expected move from a longtime dhimmi, Democrat Sheriff Lee Baca is attacking Representative Peter King for his national security hearings. Hardly surprising, given that Baca loves Hamas-linked CAIR.
Lee Baca challenging Peter King on how well Muslims have cooperated with anti-terror efforts is rich. Lee Baca has previously denounced as "un-American" criticism of him for appearing at two fundraisers for the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case. Baca's support for CAIR shows that he wouldn't know non-cooperation even if it punched him in the face, or blew up the LAPD. CAIR has never seen an anti-terror measure that it liked or supported, and recently CAIR-California distributed posters telling Muslims not to cooperate with the FBI. So CAIR is telling Muslims in California not to aid in law enforcement efforts, and Lee Baca in Los Angeles is claiming that there's no evidence of Muslim non-cooperation? He should look under his nose.
Hey Baca, King ain't the enemy. Redirect your barbs against the real bad guys. Putz.
LA sheriff takes on King Byron Tau
Los Angeles County sheriff Lee Baca said Monday that there is nothing to support Rep. Peter King's (R-N.Y.) view that American Muslims are being uncooperative with law enforcement.
"If he has evidence of non-cooperation, he should bring it forward," said Baca at a forum held today by Muslim-American groups in advance of King's hearings on radicalization in the Muslim community. "We have as much cooperation as we are capable of acquiring through public trust relationships."
"I sit on the Major City chiefs association as one of three chairs," said Baca. "I also sit on the Major County Sheriff's Association and I'm on the national board of directors of the international association for the sheriffs departments. Here's the thing: I don't know what Mr. King is hearing or who he's hearing it from."
King has said that active law enforcement offiicials are often afraid to complain publicly that Muslim leaders don't cooperate with law enforcement, but that he hears the complaint often privately and from retired law enforcement officials.
"Muslim Americans in the county of Los Angeles have been overwhelmingly astounded by terrorist attacks -- like everyone else -- and overwhelmingly concerned about a non-repeat performance of that kind - and are willing to get involved and help," said Baca.
"I'm inviting Congressman King to Los Angeles," said Baca, saying that he aims to show the relationship he has fostered between Muslim-Americans and law enforcement.
"We have no contact with Sheriff Baca and there is nothing to comment on," said a spokesman for King said.
