Rep. Peter King (R) Receives Bloody Pig's Foot in the Mail

Let's see. Rep. Peter King (R-NY) held hearings recently to determine the causes and pervasiveness of American Jihadists. He was ridiculed and painted as a McCarthyite Islamophobe. Then he receives a bloody pig's foot in the mail replete with a note containing a slew of anti-semitic rants. Was this the act of a Tea Party extremist, an angry leftist, or an angry Muslim? Not only does the Tea Party categorically reject such tactics but King is considered a favorite among the group.

Via CBS News:
Last month, King held hearings on radicalization in the Muslim-American community that critics suggested unfairly targeted Muslims, though it's not known whether this incident is related to those hearings. Muslims are forbidden from eating pork products.

Ibrahim Hooper, National Communications Director for the Council on American-Islamic Relations - a target of King's hearings - said he found the situation confusing. He said his organization regularly receives pig-themed hate messages, including letters smeared with bacon.

"My guess is it was an anti-Muslim bigot, and bigots not being brain surgeons they probably got their signals crossed," he said.
Makes total sense, doesn't it? After being painted as an anti-Muslim bigot for holding the hearings, King is sent a threatening, anti-semitic message with a bloody pig's foot from an anti-Muslim bigot. Apparently lost on Hooper is the fact that such a scenario would point to King NOT being an anti-Muslim bigot.

If I'm an investigator on this case, I'd want to know more about the 'pig-themed hate messages' Hooper receives regularly and if there are any consistencies between what they allegedly receive and what King received. If so, CAIR would be placed under greater suspicion because it wouldn't make sense for an 'anti-Muslim bigot' to send such things to both CAIR and King.
