It’s a fake community center only a fake community organizer could love. The Mosque of Doom builders are too busy to answer questions about their plans for the great unity to come. But the Mosque of Doom builders are not to busy to post attacks on other religions on their official Twitter site.
Meanwhile Obama Dimocrats are throwing themselves under the bus and Nancy Pelosi must have a bottle of Gin she’s taken more than one “nip” from. It is increasingly clear that the Mosque of Doom will crush Obama Dimocrats and they must get rid of this issue before Labor Day. Like an asteroid approaching the Earth bringing death, destruction, and doom, the Mosque of Doom must be deflected – before Labor Day – before November 2011 – before November 2012.
JournoLister Ben Smith at Politico posted an article about the tolerant “tweets” coming from the Mosque of Doom official Twitter account. Among the official “tweets” from the self-proclaimed paragons of tolerance were these questions to someone who uses the name “Amish”: “1. What are you doing on the computer? 2. That’s not very Amish 3. Shouldn’t you be making butter? ”
Such tolerance and sensitivity melts our hearts!
In another “tweet”, the person who authored the official Mosque of Doom response to an Ha’aretz article, declared: “On a side note, if Haaretz likes publishing fables, perhaps they could go back to the Yiddish ones with parables”
Such sensitivity! Such unifying rhetoric! How dare anyone question the motives of these Mosque of Doom advocates!
Soon after various websites (and Greg Gutfeld’s “Red Eye” TV show) discussed the offensive “tweets”, the up till then official responder to Ha’aretz, was declared an intern and “replaced”. The offensive “tweets” were wiped from the record, never to be seen again.
The Mosque of Doom builders are such great “uniters” that it is hard to track all their activities. Indeed, the Mosque of Doom builders are so busy uniting they cannot meet with the Governor of New York. “Mosque Developer Rejects Meeting With Paterson” blares the headline.
Are the Mosque of Doom builders refusing to meet with the Governor of New York because the governor is blind and black – or is it his breath? It certainly cannot be because the Mosque of Doom builders are intolerant and refuse dialog when their alleged raison d’etre is tolerance and dialogue.
The Mosque of Doom does have some friends. The Mosque of Doom friends are doing some rather astonishing business. So tolerant, or is it desperate, are the Doomers that they think George W. Bush will save their precious Mosque. This is the same George W. Bush that Obama Dimocrats think will save them in November because they plan to run the entire Obama Dimocratic Campaign as an anti George W. Bush referendum. But how can you run against George W. Bush by calling him a savior?
Garbage scow Maureen Dowd says “W. needs to get his bullhorn back out”. Garbage truck Eugene Robinson moans “I… would hove to hear from former President Bush on this issue“. Garbage can Peter Beinart wept, “Words I never thought I’d write: I pine for George W. Bush”.
Perhaps the Mosque of Doom is already working it’s unity magic. All these Obama Dimocrats who wanted W. Bush and his administration prosecuted now want W. Bush to save them from B. Obama (the “B” stands for “boob”). All these Obama Dimocrats want to utilize W. Bush as a demon figure in order to win elections but at the same time these Obama Dimocrats want W. Bush to come to their rescue. Obama Dimocrats will be “for” W. Bush before they are “against” W. Bush. Or is it they are “against” W. Bush before they are “for” W. Bush. It’s all very confusing.
Obama appears to be the most confused of all (and testy too). Obama was “for” the Mosque of Doom before he was “against” the Mosque of Doom. That is, if you believe Obama said he was “for” the Doom Mosque and his later “No comment” on the Doom Mosque, which on Sunday he “clarified” by stating he was “for” what it was he said on Friday which today he says he is “for”.
Ignore that previous paragraph. Consider it a missive from “Amish”. Wipe it off your memory. What we meant to say, What Obama Really Meant is that he is Edith Piaf – “No Regrets”.
“Via Greg Hengler, a silly question gets a silly answer. How else could he respond? “Why yes, in light of the catastrophic polling on this issue for my party, I should have avoided even the lame, equivocating statement I gave initially”? His disapproval rating has been creeping up in Gallup ever since he weighed in, rising from 48 percent last week to a siren-worthy 52 percent today. Of course he regrets it. But now he’s stuck with it, so here’s his — very — perfunctory show of resoluteness in the face of self-generated adversity.
The media meme du jour, naturally enough, is that the mosque debate is causing an intra-party crack-up — on the right. Our Democratic president is at odds with our Democratic Senate majority leader, and our Democratic Speaker of the House has lost her ever-lovin’ mind, and meanwhile national polls show even a majority of Democrats in opposition to the mosque, and yet … somehow it’s conservatives who have been torn apart by this issue. Good work, Politico. So batty have liberals become, in fact, that supposedly clear-eyed, battle-hardened, bottom-line political operative Mark Halperin is now screaming for Obama to wade in further on the mosque’s behalf instead of shutting up until this goes away:”
Mark Halperin is inconsolable over Obama’s “losing control of his public image on a key issue” Full regret was left to others, willingly flinging themselves under the bus to get away from the poison that is Barack Obama.
“After almost total silence from New York elected officials over the weekend after President Obama’s mosque speech (in which some members were out of town, or pocket), the reactions from members in swing districts are starting to come in — and they’re almost all at odds with the president.”
Michael Arcuri the NY-24 incumbent is against building the Mosque of Doom. Mike McMahon of NY-13 (which has many 9/11 families) wrote: “We have seen very clearly in the past weeks that building a mosque two blocks from ground zero will not promote necessary interfaith dialogue, but will continue to fracture the faiths and citizens of our city and this country. As such, I am opposed to the construction of the Cordoba Center at the currently-proposed location and urge all parties to work with local community leaders to find a more appropriate site.”
Steve Israel of NY-2 said, “While they have a constitutional right to build the mosque, it would be better if they had demonstrated more sensitivity to the families of 9/11 victims. I urge them to do so before proceeding further.”
Tim Bishop of NY-1 said “As a New Yorker, I believe ground zero is sacred ground and should unite us. If the group seeking to build the mosque is sincere in its efforts to bring people together, I would urge them to seek an alternative location which is less divisive. I dispute the wisdom of building at that location, not the constitutional right.”
2×4 Chuck Schumer is in hiding, aware that buses are prowling the streets looking for his treacherous self:
“The National Republican Senatorial Committee on Monday targeted Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., for not speaking out on the issue. Citing an article that said the normally chatty Schumer would not comment on the mosque remarks, the NRSC said Schumer should weigh in.
“It’s a remarkable commentary on the most camera-friendly senator that hes more than happy to weigh-in on caffeinated malt beverages, but he wont take a public position on the construction of a mosque near Ground Zero,” NRSC spokesman Brian Walsh said in a written statement.
“It’s time for Chuck Schumer to stand up and be counted — does he stand with President Obama in support of this mosque or does he stand with the countless 9/11 families who believe its location is inappropriate?” Walsh asked.”
2×4 Chuck Schumer must be made to respond to the Mosque of Doom question. Are yer fer or agin it Chuckie boy? ‘Fess up!
To her credit, Nancy Pelousy has taken a gin soaked stand. [Charles Krauthammer thinks it is “lunacy” not the effects of gin.] Pelousy was out on Treasure Island. Not the pirate and rum soaked Treasure Island of Robert Louis Stevenson. This Treasure Island preferred Gin to Rum:
“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.
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?”
Put down the gin bottle Nancy.
“There is no question that there is a concerted effort to make this a political issue by some, and I join those who have called for looking into how is this opposition to the mosque being funded. How is this being ginned up, that here we are, talking about Treasure Island, something we’ve been working on for decades, something of great interest to our community as we go forward to an election about the future of our country, and two of the first three questions are about a zoning issue in New York City.”
Perhaps Nancy Pelousy is too ginned up to understand that no one, other than herself, is calling for an investigation into the funding of those who oppose the Mosque of Doom. There are questions about who is funding the Mosque of Doom, but Nancy needs to put down the Beefeater bottle and look up and see the approaching asteroid.
“The developers behind the Islamic center planned for a site near Ground Zero won’t rule out accepting financing from the Mideast — including from Saudi Arabia and Iran — as they begin searching for $100 million needed to build the project.
The religious organization and the development company behind the center declined to say how much of the $100 million needed to build the facility has already been raised.”
Such transparency! Such openness! Such elevated dialogue!
“When asked if they would then turn to foreign donors, Sultan replied, “I can’t comment on that.”
Pressed on whether the developers were willilng rule out accepting donations from the governments of Saudi Arabia or Iran, he repeated, “I can’t comment on that.”
So much information coming from the Mosque of Doom now. Imagine the golden future when the Mosque of Doom is fully built and hosting all those ecumenical events with Iran’s president attacking the very idea of a Holocaust or perhaps Barack Obama will come to bow before the Imam. We can’t wait to see the souvenir stand stocked full of World Trade Center Twin Towers candles. We can extrapolate the unity and openness to come from the unity and openness already displayed.
The Obama Mosque of Doom, just like Barack Obama, will be a uniter not a divider.
Supporters of the Mosque of Doom must realize that the Mosque of Doom and it’s builders are not “moderates”. Quite the opposite. The Muslims that need to be encouraged to speak up against the horrors of modern day Islam will be hurt and demoralized by the Mosque of Doom. Don’t take our word for it. Listen to the Muslims who say this openly:
“A House of Worship or a Symbol of Destruction?
By Abdul Rahman Al-Rashid
Abdul Rahman Al-Rashed the general manager of Al -Arabiya television. Mr. Al Rashed is also the former editor-in-chief of Asharq Al- Awsat, and the leading Arabic weekly magazine, Al Majalla. He is also a senior Columnist in the daily newspapers of Al Madina and Al Bilad. He is a US post-graduate degree in mass communications. He has been a guest on many TV current affairs programs. He is currently based in Dubai.”
What does Abdul Rahman Al-Rashid say that Obama Dimocrats need to read? It’s a Mosque of Doom:
“US President Barack Obama adopted a difficult position when he supported the building of a mosque near ground zero, where 3,000 US citizens died at the hands of Al-Qaeda terrorists on 11 September 2001.
Despite the fact that the president adopted the correct stance in principle, i.e. the principle of freedom of worship, in my opinion he adopted an unnecessary and unimportant stance, even as far as Muslims are concerned. The mosque is not an issue for Muslims, and they are not bothered by its construction.
This reminds us of another principled stance Obama took when he insisted on putting the Guantanamo prisoners accused of belonging to Al-Qaeda on trial before civilian courts, and on closing down the military prison. It is true that this stance deserves appreciation. However, the fact is that he fought a battle that does not concern Muslims across the world, because there are tens of thousands of Muslims – similar to those accused of extremism – who are imprisoned in worse conditions in Muslim countries.
Muslims do not aspire for a mosque next to the 11 September cemetery, and are not bothered with Bin Ladin’s cook being put on trial in a civilian court.”
Obama and Obama Dimocrats are flinging themselves into the pyre of fire for nothing. The Mosque of Doom is a killer without benefits:
“The fact is that building a mosque next to the site of the World Trade Center Twin Towers, which were destroyed during the 11 September attacks, is a strange story. This is because the mosque is not an issue for Muslims, and they have not heard of it until the shouting became loud between the supporters and the objectors, which is mostly an argument between non-Muslim US citizens!
Neither did the Muslims ask for a single building, nor do the angry Muslims want the mosque. This is one of the few times when the two opposing sides are in agreement. [snip]
I cannot imagine that Muslims want a mosque on this particular site, because it will be turned into an arena for promoters of hatred, and a symbol of those who committed the crime. At the same time, there are no practicing Muslims in the district who need a place of worship, because it is indeed a commercial district. Is there a side that is committed to this mosque? The fact is that in the news reports there are names linked to this project that costs 100 million dollars![snip]
I do not know whether the building applicant wants a mosque whose aim is reconciliation, or he is an investor who wants quick profits. This is because the idea of the mosque specifically next to the destruction is not at all a clever deed. The last thing Muslims want today is to build just a religious center out of defiance to the others, or a symbolic mosque that people visit as a museum next to a cemetery.
What the US citizens do not understand is that the battle against the 11 September terrorists is a Muslim battle, and not theirs, and this battle still is ablaze in more than 20 Muslim countries.“
This is the key sentence of the argument, one we have made and which Mosque of Doom supporters need to consider because it is the source of the emotional tuning fork which will turn the Mosque of Doom into a defining issue this November. Read it and weep, Mosque of Doom supporters:
“Some Muslims will consider that building a mosque on this site immortalizes and commemorates what was done by the terrorists who committed their crime in the name of Islam. I do not think that the majority of Muslims want to build a symbol or a worship place that tomorrow might become a place about which the terrorists and their Muslim followers boast, and which will become a shrine for Islam haters whose aim is to turn the public opinion against Islam. This is what has started to happen now; they claim that there is a mosque being built over the corpses of 3,000 killed US citizens, who were buried alive by people chanting God is great, which is the same call that will be heard from the mosque.”
