Pelosi: Probe mosque opposition By: Andy Barr August 18, 2010 08:08 AM EDT

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?”

Republicans have signaled that they will try to turn the mosque into a campaign issue, and nearly all of the leading national Republicans have weighed in against the mosque's construction.

She’s playing into our hands, sending the Imam to the middle east on a taxpayer funded fundraising trip while investigating patriotic Americans who do not want an Islamic victory arch built on the graves of dead citizens.

We’re being funded by those who wish to help sponsor an electric plane, to fly into the mosque twice each morning, or you can purchase your own and fly yours into the mosque...err, I mean, practice your flight skills, when flying around obstacles in the local area.

Someone who didn’t hate America would be investigating how the mosque is being funded.

Politico thinks this is a good thing. I don’t see any criticism of Pelosi’s stand in the article.

Investigate them for what queen Nancy? For exercising their right of free speach...that is also mentioned in the first amendment, you know, the one you usually say is freedom FROM religion.

Republicans should be investigated because they oppose this mosque. That’s are present government’s view of our rights.

Perhaps they are.

Maybe they know how bad things are going to get and would like to saddle Rs with as much of the blame as possible.

Which is why I want the House, but they can keep the Senate by a narrow margin.

Islamic Jihadists flew planes into the WTC killing 300+ Americans
Islamic Jihadist sympathizers want to build a mosque on the site of the attack
The President of the USA sides with the Islamists

Hmm, I wonder how this controversy got ginned up?

Please talk about this kind of thing until early November. It's important to keep this issue in the public mind until then.

Honest Ms. Pelosi, it will fire up your base and ensure you keep your majority......

Honest.

Lets probe the majority of Americans who approve of AZ 1070, Lets probe the majority of Americans who don’t want Obamacare, Lets probe the majority of Americans who disapprove of President Obama and Lets probe the majority of Americans who disapprove of having a mosque in the missing shadow of the WTC.

I’d say let’s probe Pelosi but the visual imagery is too gross.

Sure. Investigate who is funding the mosque opposition -- not who is funding the mosque. Makes perfect sense to me.

Every Republican House candidate in the nation running against a Dem opponent should tie that opponent to Pelosi in every ad, and in every campaign appearance.

Even if said opponent is a "blue dog" or some form of moderate who does not vote with Pelosi 100%, the point needs to be made that the future of our country is at stake this November. Every seat is critical in determining who the next Speaker is.

I believe this to be true. And, Obama can scream that it is the Republicans that stand in the way of anything he proposes. Blame, blame and spend that is all socialist democrats know. They are quite stupid but cunning.

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.

I think a MAJORITY of American’s support an investigation into the U.S. House of Representatives and their corrupt leader - a leader who actually told the American people that she “may deem the Healthcare Bill passed” if she could not get the votes - - this in total violation of the U.S. Constitution and the Oath of Office she so obviously violated!

So, opinions (thoughts) that differ from the government must be investigated. To what end? Prosecution? (sadly, yes)

This has been the intent of hate crime legislation from the beginning.
