I am still trying to get my arms around this one. The CNN anchor is interviewing Congressman Peter King, who soon become chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, about his intention to hold hearings on the extent of radicalization within the American Muslim community. It has set off a firestorm of political correctness in the lefty blogs … as demonstrated nicely by CNN anchor Candy Crowley. “There are just going to be a certain amount of unhappy people in this country and it has nothing to do with being Muslim.” Unreal.

Pop star Medina – real name Andrea Fuentealba Valbak – fought back with what seems to be a blistering retort on the mic, and the crowd seemed to agree with her.

This has certainly been a very quite story. What happens when kids pray together at a public school event? What happens when a valedictorian wants to mention God and her faith during a graduation ceremony? What happens when a teacher wears a cross in the classroom?
We’ve all read about the results; students are barred from praying, valedictorians are forbidden from attending graduation and teachers are fired. It’s all about this mythical wall between church and state, but if you visit Inver Grove Heights in Minnesota, you’ll have the opportunity to send your kids to a Muslim charter school through the 8th grade.
