Long Island Congressman Peter King’s Office Receives Severed Pig’s Foot

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) – Capitol Police are looking into a package with a severed pig’s foot in it sent to Long Island Congressman Peter King’s office in Washington.

King is the chair of the House Homeland Security committee, and was recently criticized for holding hearings on Islamic radicalization in the U.S.

The package was intercepted by mail screeners before it got to King’s office.

Along with the severed foot was a note containing anti-Semitic slurs. King is Catholic.

Would you be intimidated? Is this proof that more needs to be done to stop radicals in the U.S.? Sound off in our comments section.

    ummmmmmmmmmmm bacom, I guess if the sender was a muslim,he couldn’t eat it anyway !

  2. wondering? says:

    is it true that Muslims get 72 virgins when they die in the service of Allah, or do they get one 72 year old virgin that looks like Janet Reno?

    1. Rodin says:

      I’d take a woman with experience to please before a “virgin” anytime. … unless I needed to hide my own sexual incompetence, inability and inexperience.

  3. Rodin says:

    Oh my, DawnTed has joined the fray. Now everything will be crystal clear.

    What was it this thread was about, pigs and kings?

  4. nasty nathan says:

    as a C B S employee, nathan has a ‘right’ to impersonate anyone he likes to ‘keep the conversation going’

    1. nathan says:

      Someone is a little obsessed with me it seems. Instead of cyber-stalking me, you can meet me in person if you have something to say. Btw, site monitor pl check my IP addy to see if I have impersonated anyone. Ever. Please

      1. Rodin says:

        The impersonations comes from an IP that also services C B S.

      2. nathan says:

        PS –
        Don’t believe me? Check the grammar.

  5. Dan Te says:

    Is he related to Martin Luther King?

    1. Dan Te says:

      I am nathan.

  6. PIKE BISHOP JR. says:

    me..i favor those pig knuckles sam the sham samwiches…ah pigs knuckles..

  7. Roy says:

    This just helps him prove his point.Radical Islam has no tolerance for freedom of speach or freedom from anything,or freedom for anybody…..!

    1. Michael H. says:

      Odds are this did not come from a Muslim. Devout Muslims are forbidden from touching anything pig related.

      1. Michael H. says:

        I am nathan

      2. Michael H. says:

        See what I mean?

  8. Big Nard says:

    They should have mailed a whole pigs. I would have had a roasting. I can make pickled pig feet also.

      Like I said above.


    To The Homeland security A**ho*es, and the Author of this article,
    A pig’s foot delivered to someone without being neatly placed in the center of a bed of neatly placed cubes of green jello,(preferably delivered in a shoebox) doesn’t count as a threat.

    1. We must crack down on this threat to National Security says:


      If it weren’t a severed pig’s foot, then it would have the rest of the pig attached?

  11. nathan says:

    Stop the hate. Muslims are are friends. They never hurt anyone. It’s only a very few extremists that did anything. And they didn’t do much. Muslims are peaceful.

    Can’t we all just get along?

    1. steve says:

      I would feel better if Muslim leaders would stand up and denounce the violence. Where are Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson? Until that happens I will continue to encourage our government to be cautious. We are at war.

      1. Michael H. says:

        Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson aren’t Muslims. “Reverend” indicates Christian denomination. Baptist, I believe.

        Why are you bringing Sharpton and Jackson into this?

      2. Kwame Dunkle says:

        Maybe Al and Jesse owe steve money?

      3. Rodin says:

        Why is anyone bringing Muslims into this? Or Sharpton or Jackson? None have anything to do with this story… unless you’re a bigot like King, in which case you’re fixated.

      4. steve says:

        Because Sharpton and Jackson are the first ones to speak out if Blacks are involved. Let them speak out now. Let them decry the racism or bigotry perceived here. Or are the impotent by their silence?

      5. Rodin says:

        Stevie –

        “Or are the impotent by their silence?”

        What is this supposed to mean? It’s a misquote that makes absolutely no sense, maybe to you, in your delusion of an education. It’s a bad translation of the Spanish “El que calla otorga.” “Silence consents” might be a more appropriate translation.

        Even your spelling is careless and sloppy.

        But, really, be careful what you post. Really isn’t saying much for you.

    2. nathan says:

      not sure if there is another nathan but as a regular poster I didn’t write that. Probably another gutless anonymous coward.

      1. Michael H. says:

        There is definitely at least one person around here that likes to post as others. I have been impersonated multiple times. CBS refuses to do anything about it despite multiple e-mails to complain about the situation.

      2. Impersonating Posters? says:

        Much like nathan impersonates others??

  12. edward says:

    How appropiate!
    he looks like he belongs in a sty and his retro- McCarthy politics is an anachronism in a time when we are all trying to better understand other peoples cultures- not rounding them up for some future ostrisizing.

    1. steve says:

      Again, where are the Muslim leaders? Why aren’t they denouncing the violence?

    2. Justine Bateman says:


      where are you from, planet ret@rd?

  13. Michael H. says:

    Anti-semitic slurs and a pig foot sent to a Catholic? Somebody didn’t do their homework.


  14. Rodin says:

    PS –

    You can see one in the PIGTURE. He’s shoving it in his mouth.

  15. Rodin says:

    Why would anyone send Peter King a Pig’s foot? HE’S GOT TWO OF HIS OWN.

    I wish someone would send ME some. I LOVE TROTTERS!
