As If There Was Any Doubt

Fox News reported yesterday (via AP), “Obama Comes Out in Favor of Allowing Mosque Near Ground Zero”

Hell, even the headline pisses me off. “Obama Comes Out in Favor of …?? Our Islamist sympathizer in chief (no caps cause he doesn’t rate it … he is after all “anti-capitalist”), has always been pro-Islam. It has shown up in his speeches, his physical actions/body language, and in the deeds of his administration concerning the middle east. So how on earth, can he be “Coming out” in favor of anything, when that modifier implies at least a reasonably high chance he has applied some time in weighing the pros and cons, before making a public statement. (Hopefully after having arrived at a sound and reasoned conclusion.) It would also imply that there was some (reasonable or expected) doubt about which side of this issue he would lend the support of the oval office to. In both these cases, Obama’s stance was so much a given as to have been a no brainer. A more accurate statement would have omitted “Comes out”, and been much more to the point.

“As a citizen, and as president, I believe that Muslims have the same right to practice their religion as anyone else in this country,” … “That includes the right to build a place of worship and a community center on private property in lower Manhattan, in accordance with local laws and ordinances,” he said. “This is America, and our commitment to religious freedom must be unshakable.”

In and of itself, the above is a true statement. A point of view one would hope all our Presidents would hold as a core belief. One could even argue this is similar to what the American Nazi Party did when they marched through Skokie Illinois, ostensibly for the reasons of exercising their rights to freedom of speech and assembly, when in reality all they wanted to do was soundly tweak the noses of the largely Jewish population of Skokie, and get away with it. The incident in Skokie was just that, an incident. It came and went, and once it was done, there was no victory by the idiots who marched, the only victory to be had was in the noble act of restraint, shown by the townsfolk, in honoring the Constitution. The fools who marched only showed themselves to be what they were, for any and all to see in the light of day. But it passed.

The Islamists, with their lies, their designs of tearing down this country-it’s culture-it’s history-and it’s government, along with the bands of useful idiots who actively or passively allow them to reach ever closer in achieving their aspirations, seek not “just an incident”, or an event. They won’t be trying to “tweak the nose” of the local townsfolk. They seek to kick them in the groin … repeatedly, and as often as possible.

Yes, there is a large level of religious tolerance in this country. But there is a limit as to what is permissible, given the standards of our culture. Allowing this mosque to be built, even seriously entertaining such a thought, cheapens what we are as a culture and as a people. It becomes not a case of honest tolerance and attempts to understand that which is different or alien to our culture. Rather, it shows the instigators, we are willing to appease, to give up bit by bit, that which mark us as a culture. And once the first step is successfully taken, there will be more down the road, until we are no longer a unique culture of our own, but one part of a larger parcel … one which prostrates itself, bowing to Mecca.

  1. I hate the moral equivalency this administration gives muslim extremists. It isn’t about practicing their religion AT ALL!!! They have well over 34 mosques in NYC. If it was only because they needed more room to worship, why not take up Gov. Patterson’s offer of FREE REAL ESTATE SOMEWHERE ELSE?? It is about victory in their eyes. No one is stopping them from worship. And the idiotarians running the city seem to forget that, once a mosque goes up, you can’t have any businesses that sell alcohol or “pleasure” within sight distance. No, there is no law in NYC books for that, but there is a law in the muslim religion about that, and how much do you want to bet that will happen? They also forget that the calls to worship, the demands they make to everyone to respect the religion, without once respecting the other religious houses of worship.

    This is akin to yelling “FIRE!!!” in a theater. The First Amendment has it’s limits on freedom of speech. They limit LDS from polygamy, so why can’t they limit muslims from putting up a victory mosque that would serve as a freakin’ terrorist pilgrimage site???

    • Just another nail in the coffin holding our culture and national identity. There is perhaps some little time remaining before all hope is lost.

      As others have said, I hope for a massive change in the House and Senate come this November, but I fear what the “lame ducks” have in store for us the day after the elections. Do not be surprised if some sort of “national emergency” forces the President to “suspend” any and all part(s) of the Constitution as he sees fit. What is sad, is never in all my born days would I have entertained the thought of something like this happening (except in outlining some short story or other flight of fantasy). His actions, those of his administration, and both houses of Congress (to include members of both parties), make this more plausible with each passing day.
