In Defense of the National Security Police State

Rep. Steve King is the quasi-fascist head of the House Homeland Security Committee.  If there is any police state measure that the likes of King would oppose, news of it has yet to come across our desks.  In defense of the national security police state, and routine violations of constitutional rights and liberties, King defends the Patriot Act in a recent op-ed by arguing on the basis of fiction.  Literally.  Excerpt:
If a roving wiretap is good enough for Tony Soprano, it’s good enough for Mohamed Atta.
Is King aware that The Sopranos was not reality television?

Isn't this the dude that supported Irish Nationalist terrorists back during the 80s?

Yes. For terrorism before he was against it.

And he was supporting terrorism (IRA terror campaign) against our greatest ally (United Kingdom), so why exactly hasn't charges of treason been thrown his way? If he wants a police state, let's throw him one ;)
