We've all heard the sad bleatings from the defenders of the building of a mosque at Ground Zero, otherwise known as a victory monument to Mohammed. Obama claimed in his White House remarks on this subject that it was a basic constitutional right, freedom of religion, which permits this mosque to be built. Of course that's a phony argument since no one is seriously suggesting we do away with the right of Muslims to practice their relgion or to build mosques, of which there are many in New York.
But apparently the same constitutional protections Obama and other out of touch elitists and Muslim apologists cite as the cornerstone of their defense of this deliberate provocation at Ground Zero in New York do not apply to those who oppose this mosque.
Those of us who oppose this mosque being built at Ground Zero have been denounced as un-American, somehow trying to overturn the U.S. Constitution and the rule of law and attacking freedom of religion. Now, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) suggests we should be investigated:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday said she supports an investigation into groups opposing the building of a mosque near ground zero in New York.Does Speaker Pelosi suggest we should also investigate Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), who recently came out in opposition to this mosque? Does she wish to investigate the Jewish Anti-Defamation Leaque which has come out strongly in opposition to this mosque? Would Pelosi also seek to investigate the families of the victims of 9/11 who have come out so strongly in opposition to this mosque?
Pelosi told San Francisco’s KCBS radio that “there is no question there is a concerted effort to make this a political issue by some.”
“I join those who have called for looking into how is this opposition to the mosque being funded,” she said. “How is this being ginned up?”
Without a doubt, Nancy Pelosi has to be the stupidest person ever to sit in the Speaker's Chair in the U.S. House of Representatives and so, it might be easy to dismiss her remarks on this occasion if it were not for her same tendency to delegitimize whoever her political opponents of the moment happen to be with similar "un-American" rhetoric just as she did with Town Hall protesters against health care last August.
Whose side are YOU On?
So, here you have Nancy Pelosi joining Obama in supporting this mosque and attempting to tar opponents. Both are joined by the terrorist group Hamas. Also, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU)has come out in favor of the mosque. Funny, but the same ACLU refuses to recognize the constitutional principle of freedom of religion at Christmas when they actively seek to get Nativity scenes removed from public places.
A new poll released Wednesday, August 18, shows a clear majority of New Yorkers believe the mosque should NOT be built, even if those behind it have the right to do so. 63% oppose the mosque, only 27% support building it at the Ground Zero site. This echoes polls taken across the country which show similar results.
Once again, Obama, Pelosi, many on the left and other assorted elitists are on the wrong side of the American people!
