Authorities intercepted a parcel this morning addressed to Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) containing a bloody pig’s foot and a derogatory message, a source has confirmed to CBS News.The letter contained anti-semitism too, and attacked the hearings he conducted on Islamic terrorism:
The parcel was intercepted at the Congressional mail facility in Landover, Maryland, where mail sent to lawmakers is screened for security risks.
The U.S. Capitol Police and U.S. Postal Service confirmed that there is an open investigation, though would not confirm the details of what was contained in the parcel because the investigation is ongoing. King’s office, which did not see the parcel, referred all questions to the Capitol Police.
According to the Postal Service, a hazardous materials response team tested the parcel and found it to be non-hazardous.
A Capitol Hill source tells NBC that the Washington D.C. office of Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) was sent a bloody pig’s foot with a note attached that contained anti-Semitic ramblings.It should be noted that King is not Jewish and his default religion is Catholicism.
The note referenced King’s controversial hearing last month about Muslim extremism within the United States.
Now what can we learn from this? At least 3 things: a]the culprit could have been a most deranged leftist, or b]an Islamofascist who had no problem associating him/herself with pork if it suited their deranged goals, and c]that no matter how badly King caved to political correctness by not inviting Steve Emerson, Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Robert Spencer, it will not satisfy such demonic creatures; they will still despise him till the end of time.
We must hope the horrifying package is traced, but can't be surprised if the culprits have made an effort to cover their tracks.
