In response to Congressman Peter King's hearings on Islamic radicalization, Muslim Brotherhood stooge Suhail Khan authored an article denouncing the hearings as a "witch hunt." He was echoed by Ibrahim Hooper of CAIR who also branded the hearings a "witch hunt."
The Washington Post's Eugene Robinson caught on to this original idea, declaring the hearings, "Peter King's Modern Day Witch Hunt." Bob Herbert at the New York Times joined him in branding the hearings a "witch hunt." At USA Today, an op-ed weighed in on "The Danger of a Muslim Witch Hunt."
Democratic pols also got in on the act. Congressman Keith Ellison declared the hearings a "witch hunt" and Congresswoman Judy Chu complained that a "witch hunt for Muslim radicals will do little to make our nation safer."
