Muslim Americans are opposed to al qaeda. Many Muslim Americans lost their lives in 911. For Republicans to paint, with a broad brush, that Muslim Americans are guilty of being terrorists is a bold faced LIE. Their claim is racist. Their claim is racial profiling. Their claim goes against the will of our founding fathers.
Our country was based on religious freedom. Muslim Americans have the same “freedom of religion” rights as any other American.
They have every right to re-build their existing mosque a few blocks away from the Twin Towers location.
For Republican pundits like Newt Gingrich, Rush Limbaugh and Sarah Palin to use this as a political issue to demonize and chastise ALL Muslim Americans is WRONG! They are allowing the terrorists and al qaeda to WIN. The terrorists’ wish was to change America, to change our freedoms, to change Freedom of Religion, and instead use divisive rhetoric to control and instill fear in every day Americans and to demonize our very own foundations of Freedom of Religion, Freedom of Speech and Equality of ALL regardless of race, ethnicity or religion.
Republican pundits are a blight on the very foundation of America!
Newt Gingrich compares 'Ground Zero mosque' backers to Nazis
Newt Gingrich went with a slightly different Holocaust metaphor when he compared the people behind the proposed mosque, whom he referred to as "radical Islamists," to "Nazis" during an appearance on Fox News.
"Nazis don't have the right to put up a sign next to the holocaust museum in Washington," Gingrich insisted, speaking of the museum where just a year ago a guard was killed by a white supremacist trying to enter the building with a gun. Gingrich then went on to claim that "we would never accept the Japanese putting up a site next to Pearl Harbor."
