I would like to take this opportunity to condemn the brainchild of the 9/11 mosque project, Imam Feisel Abdul Rauf.
You sir, are a bigot. How dare you forget the fallen SS solidiers ? Let's build a shrine to them at Yad Vashem in Israel. How can you possibly forget the brave Imperial Japanese kamikaze pilots of World War II ? Let's build a shrine to them at Pearl Harbor. While we're at it, we need to break ground on a memorial for the brave Confederate war dead at Gettysburg and also an exquisite shrine to the Huns in Rome is certainly in order. For your obvious racism, I am reporting you to the NAACP.
Obviously, I'm joking, but this whole Cordoba Project fiasco is anything but a laughing matter. How can anyone with a straight face actually propose such a thing ? Why would anyone in their right mind allow the building of a mosque right next to Ground Zero ? Before the Progressiveviks start their tired "We Need To Be Tolerant" argument, I'll go on the record now: Most Muslims do not subscribe to Mohamed Atta's or Al Qaeda's views, especially here in the United States. Most of the Muslims I know are patriotic Americans simply trying to make it in this world. This is not a rant against Muslims or Islam.
This is a rant about creating a tourist site for Islamic psychopaths. Granted, most folks who would go to the Cordoba Center would simply go there to pray. That's fine. But what about those who would visit the center to gloat ? What about those who would make the Cordoba Center a pilgrimage site on the way to Martyrdom ? Do the memories of those who died during the 9/11 mean anything to Michael Bloomberg or the rest of the "We Need To Be Tolerant" crowd ? Shouldn't those memories be protected ?
The World Trade Center is not just hallowed ground in New York, it's hallowed ground for America. New York was not attacked, America was. That being said, our federal government should step in (You have no idea how much writing this sentence pains me.) and declare the site of the World Trade Center and the surrounding area a national park, using eminent domain if they have to. This way nothing will be built in the area. Yes, this goes against my Libertarian ideals, which I hold near and dear. However, I hold being an American a hell of a lot nearer and dearer. Of course the 2+2=5 Progressivevik Junta that passes itself off as Congress will do nothing of the sort since there are no spotted field crickets to protect. So with a heavy heart, and for the millionth time this week, I say--
God help us all.
