On his radio show last Saturday night, Democratic Assemblyman Dov Hikind took some time to castigate the harshest critics of the recently-revealed New York City Police Department surveillance program of Muslim mosques and businesses, and especially the New Jersey politicians calling for an investigation into the NYPD’s actions in their state.
“Recently, it all started with the Associated Press when they came out with a report, a study, of … what the police department is doing is too intrusive, they’re invading Muslim mosques and they’re doing this, they’re doing that, and they’re doing the other thing,” Mr. Hikind explained, mocking the critics’ claims. “As the days go on, more and more people, especially Democrats and people on the left, are criticizing, asking for investigations. A Senator from New Jersey, I think Menendez is his name, asked for the Justice Department to look into this. I mean, these people are nuts! Cory Booker, the Mayor of Newark, same thing.”
“They’re very, very upset. I think it is so ridiculous. I think these people are endangering all of us,” he added.
