“One thing I’m sure of is that there are people in this country – there is a radical strain of Islam in this country – it’s not just over there – trying to kill Americans every week. It is a real threat, and it is a threat that is much more at home now than it was after 9/11,” Tea Party Rep. Joe Walsh

Hate speech and Islamophobic rhetoric by racists in Congress (i.e. Republican & Tea Party reps Michele Bachmann and Joe Walsh) incites violence & hate crimes…
