Republican pundits are a Blight on the very Foundation of America!

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."

At the very least, the Muslims have shown an insensitivity to the feelings of others. I have grave reservations about Islam in general because I don't now what it would be like if it every gains ascendancy in the U.S. and some fiery immam begins preach a violent form of Sharia Law. Under circumstances like that, it would become clear that we had made tragic mistake in allowing them to enter the U.S. Now there are 700,000 in NYC with no end in sight. Any woman who understands the indignities women in Islamic countries have been subject would be well to look upon Islam with a jaundiced eye.

This is the most naive assessment of Islam I ever hope to see. Perhaps you need to research in depth Sharia Law before you are so quick to resort to your favorite terms. I guess you will do about anything to tarnish the representatives of half of the U.S. population and by extension that population itself.

Does this mean you are in favor genital mutilation, amputations for theft, and stoning for adultery? Good for you, Dee.

Have any of the so-called moderate Muslims denounced Sharia Law, stonings, etc.? Not to my knowledge; they ask us to accept that on faith. We used to insist that we accept but must verify Russian missile destruction. What's wrong with using the same approach with Muslims: if you are moderate, let us verify it by your denunciation of Sharia Law and all the mischief of jihad, infidels,etc. it contains. If they refuse, we reclassify them as agents of foreign governments.

Please share with us your detailed research of Sharia Law.

It's fortunate that the Republicans are awake since so many others are asleep at the switch. I understand that Islam has been given many exemptions from the requirements of Obamacare. Another good educational project for you so you will be better informed.

Here is what YOU are missing. They are American Citizens who have a different religion. They are NOT foreigners. They have a DIFFERENT RELIGION.

Our Nation was FOUNDED on Religious Freedom.

The center was already based there. They are rebuilding it.

We are talking about Americans of a different faith. It would be like denying Catholic Americans, Amish, or anyone of a different faith, WHO IS AMERICAN from existing here.

You are NAIVE .. or (who knows what) but you FORGET, they are AMERICANS!

This is a very, very teachable moment.

Dee said...

The entire issue is this:
The denial of this center is saying Muslim Americans are all terrorists and they do not have a right to be in this country.

That is RACIST!
and that is WRONG!

Dee said...

We are talking about Muslim Americans. Muslim AMERICANS.

I have NOT seen ANY reports mutilation or amputations in America. HAVE YOU?? Tell me of ONE report. Provide the url where the perp has NOT been indicted. Now WHO is naive???

Come On!

The location that is being discussed is a YOUTH CENTER. They play basketball at the site.

This is ALL political promoted by the extremists like Beck, Fox and others who HATE our President.

It ALL makes me sick!!

Hey Fox Fans, Your Favorite Network Is Part-Owned By a Saudi Prince Whose Family Rules By Sharia Law

Maybe Newtie could persuade Rupert Murdoch to have his partners build some synagogues and churches and end all this unpleasantness.

The stridency with which Fox News personalities attack the downtown Islamic center — red meat for the millions who tune in each night — is an example of the often uneasy relationship and occasionally diverging interests between many of News Corp.’s properties, in this case Fox News and its parent corporation.

For example, News Corp.’s second-largest shareholder, after the Murdoch family, is Prince Alwaleed bin Talal (pictured above ), the nephew of Saudi Arabian King Abdullah, and one of the world’s richest men.

Saudi Arabia, which is ruled by Alwaleed’s uncle King Abdullah, is, of course, an authoritarian petro-monarchy that actually is governed by Sharia law and is known as one of the top global sponsors of terrorism. A spokesperson for the Saudi embassy in Washington says that while Alwaleed is part of the royal family, he isn’t a member of the government, but rather a private citizen.

I doubt all those Fox news patriots know that the same News Corp that’s owned by a Wahhabist Saudi prince just donated a million dollars to the Republican party. Of course they’ll never find out because the only network they watch is the same terrorist funded network that’s doing it.

But if they were to hear about it, considering that they all seem to be so worried about the terrorists coming to kill them in their beds, I would imagine they’d be uncomfortable about getting all their news from a network that’s partially owned by one of “them.” And I’d be very surprised if they were sanguine about a scary Muslim donating to their patriotic political party. Why next thing you know they’ll be trying to build community centers near Ground Zero.

At the very least, this whole thing is very insensitive, don’t you think? After all, some people really hate Muslims and it’s very unpleasant for them to have to watch news networks that are owned by them and be asked vote for a Party that’s funded by them. I’m not saying that Murdoch should be forced to stop donating millions to Republicans or partnering with Saudi princes who believe in Sharia law. I just think it’s common sense that he wouldn’t do it in the first place.

It is ALL Islamophobia! Racial Profiling!

A more detailed commentary on you post can be found here

I was not suggesting that the abomimations of Sharia Law are rampant in America now. I am saying that may be in our future if everyone ignores the threat now on the basis that they are American citizens. We all know they are and we all know they are entitled to build whereever permitted by law and the City of New York. We also know they will take every advantage of the freedoms we offer while knowing full well that in their homelands no such freedoms are available. Instead, they offer dhimmitude.

It's a community center all right like the meeting place of the German American Bund before WW II.

As shown elsewhere, when the Muslim population reaches 2% that becomes a tipping point and it is all down hill from there, as liberal Denmark is finding out. The U.S. at 1.4% has a little way to go but Canada at 1.9% is close right now. Once you review what happens at higher percentages you might want to review your position on this.

When the Muslim population reaches 2% of the total that becomes a tipping point and it is all down hill from there, as liberal Denmark is finding out. The U.S. at 0.6% has a little way to go but Canada at 1.9% is close right now. Once you review what happens at higher
you might want to rethink your position on this. This is a correction of my earlier post in which I mistated the U.S. % as 1.4%. It is actually only o.6% but for how long?
