>Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is Or STFU

>Arson is suspected at the Murfreesboro mosque construction site because, you know, construction machinery doesn’t just torch itself.

So Newt Gingrich, Charles Krauthammer and the rest of you yahoos who contend you aren’t Islamophobes, you just don’t want those people worshipping on our hallowed ground! … I just have two words: pony up.

Come to Tennessee and embrace the mosque in Murfreesboro. We’re hundreds of miles from Ground Zero. This ain’t hallowed ground, it’s Rutherford County.

Come tonight for the candlelight vigil sponsored by Middle Tennesseans for Religious Freedom. There will be TV cameras there. I know that’s important to you.

Tell your rage-filled minions that Muslims have a right to worship in America, not just legally and Constitutionally but morally, as well. Control your hateful rabble before some innocent person gets hurt. You will have blood on your hands if this escalates. I will blame you for stoking a torch and pitchfork mob.

And when you’ve finished embracing the Muslims in Tennessee you can go to Jacksonville, Florida, where a pipe bomb was found at a mosque. And then take it to Arlington, Texas, where a mosque playground was set on fire. And then take it to Madera, California.

If your beef is really about how special Ground Zero is, fine. You should be the biggest supporters of Islamic community centers and houses of worship in the rest of the nation.

That you stay silent is very, very telling. It’s all the proof we need supporting our contention that you’re just hateful bigots stoking fear among your ignorant followers.

  1. >Southern Beale:I heard of this yesterday evening and it just made me think of incidents in Birmingham, Selma and all of the other bright and shining moments of WhiteMerKKKa. According to Boswell, Samuel Johnston said, on April 7, 1775:"Patriotism is the last refuge of the scoundrel."I would add to that that hatred and bigotry are the first refuge of the cowardly and ignorant.I have heard from numerous people that the "Ground Zero Mosque" is a bad thing. When told that a.) it is not a mosque and b.) it is not AT Ground Zero, they simply ignore those two facts and, like sullen children, repeat their talking points. Fucking morons.

  2. >"Patriotism is the last refuge of the scoundrel."It's also the first and middle refuges for today's GOBP.~

    >You left out some haters: "I support freedom of religion, but let's give the families of 9/11 victims a voice about where this mosque should be placed, because putting one near Ground Zero isn't appropriate," said Rep. Charlie Melancon (La.), "The First Amendment protects freedom of religion," Reid spokesman Jim Manley wrote in an e-mail. "Senator Reid respects that, but thinks that the mosque should be built someplace else." Billionaire real estate investor Jeff Greene, who is running in a Senate primary against Rep. Kendrick B. Meek (Fla.), spoke against the mosque over the weekend: "Common sense and respect for those who lost their lives and loved ones gives sensible reason to build the mosque someplace else," Greene said.Florida Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink, the party's nominee for governor, sided with Reid and Greene — saying that she opposes the construction of the mosque because the families of those killed Sept. 11 oppose it. Former Democratic presidential candidate and Vermont governor Howard Dean, a hero to many liberals, has called efforts to build an Islamic community center two blocks from the site of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks "a real affront to people who lost their lives."

  5. >Yeah "let's give the families of 9/11 victims a voice about where this mosque should be placed" is TOTALLY THE SAME THING as comparing "Ground Zero Mosque" backers to Nazis. Which one is more likely to result in vandalism.Jim, you're a troll. I'm tired of you. You're gone.

  6. >A lot of the victims of 911 were Muslims that worked in and around the World Trade Center. Many of the first responders who risked their lives assisting the evacuation were Muslim. Many of the people who later died from respiratory problems caused by the debris and dust were Muslim. Perhaps the beliefs of these people disqualified them from victim status. So, who qualified for victim status on 911? Only Christians, or maybe just Baptists? What about BUddists, Ba'hai, Scientologists, Hindus and even Atheists who died, do they count? New York City, home of the United Nations, has a very diverse ethnic and immigrant population. Over 70 nationalities were represented in the workforce employed at the world trade center. But a few loud mouthed @$$Hole politicians have found they can garner support by whipping up a frenzied mob with hate and prejudice just to get some votes. This political bullshit is sleaze of the worst kind. The same corrupt bastards who have ruined our economy by putting corporations above the law, who see the middle and lower classes as resources to be used up and tossed aside, want us focus our attention away from them. People who fall for this BS should be ashamed.
