There you have it folks, if you needed any more indication or proof that this guy has a thing for Islam, this is it. This president doesn’t get it, the overwhelming majority of New Yorkers and Americans elsewhere loathe the thought of a mosque, this mosque, being built there of all places, by this imam, who supports sharia in the United States.
The revulsion is growing and deepening within the US public for this president and his administration and his party. The people are going to line up on Nov 2nd and vote the Dems out in large numbers and then they are going after knumb-nuts come 2012. This president and his policies are going to be neutered by a Republican congress who are going to be answerable to the people, who are going to starve Obama’s socialist programs, then when they have both houses, overturn them.
Obama’s support for this mosque at ground zero is only going to rally the people like never before, who are going to apply pressure on the city council to rescind their support for the mosque and reverse course. If that fails, businesses are going to be targeted to not sell material for the outrage to be built. All of this is going to create a huge stir and public attention, with our message getting out about what Islam and this moque really stands for. The people will listen and Islam will be even further marginalized as the truth reaches the larger auidence. KGS
Barack at a Ramadanadingdong Iftar allah snackbar
WASHINGTON (al-AP) – President Barack Obama on Friday forcefully endorsed allowing a mosque near ground zero, saying the country’s founding principles demanded no less.
“As a citizen, and as president, I believe that Muslims have the same right to practice their religion as everyone else in this country,” Obama said, weighing in for the first time on a controversy that has riven New York City and the nation.
[TT: The man hasn’t a clue about the US’s founding principles, for if he did, he wouldn’t be trashing the US constitution like he has for the past 20 months. And while this might be the first time “he’s weighing in on the subject”, he’s already spoken by sending the imam abroad as a representative of the United States, who’s a sharia loving anti-US constitution crack pot.]
“That includes the right to build a place of worship and a community center on private property in lower Manhattan, in accordance with local laws and ordinances,” he said. “This is America, and our commitment to religious freedom must be unshakable.”
[TT: Again, like he did in the Arizona immigration law debate, he obfuscates the facts. This has everythin to do with this imam, the funding for it coming from abroad, the purpose behind it, and typical zoning laws that have effected where churches and sysnagogues are to be built all of the time. No one is saying they can’t build a mosque, but thís mosque, there, near hallowed ground.]
Obama made the comments at an annual dinner in the White House State Dining Room celebrating the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.
The White House had not previously taken a stand on the mosque, which would be part of a $100 million Islamic center two blocks from where nearly 3,000 people perished when hijacked jetliners slammed into the World Trade Center towers on Sept. 11, 2001. Press secretary Robert Gibbs had insisted it was a local matter.
It was already much more than that, sparking debate around the country as top Republicans including Sarah Palin and Newt Gingrich announced their opposition. So did the Anti-Defamation League, a Jewish civil rights group.
Obama elevated it to a presidential issue Friday without equivocation.
While insisting that the place where the twin towers once stood was indeed “hallowed ground,” Obama said that the proper way to honor it was to apply American values.
“Our capacity to show not merely tolerance, but respect towards those who are different from us—and that way of life, that quintessentially American creed, stands in stark contrast to the nihilism of those who attacked us on that September morning, and who continue to plot against us today,” he said.
[TT: What an ass, this is indeed about tolerance and respect, all the more reason for this outrage not to be built. This idiot knows nothing about “the American creed”, but everything about nihilism, which can be seen in his attempt to destroy American society, attacking the US constitution, property rights and ripping off future generations of yet to be born Americans.]
