Dems Come out Swinging on Behalf of Ground Zero Mosque
A Semi-News/Semi-Satire from AzConservative ^ | 21 August 2010 | John Semmens

Posted on 08/21/2010 10:21:24 AM PDT by John Semmens

With the controversy over the location of a new, $100 million mosque near the spot of the 9-11 attack heating up, leading luminaries of the Democratic Party have come out in favor of going ahead with it as planned.

From the White House we have observed President Obama giving his blessing to the project, both in words and deeds. “Building this mosque adjacent to the site of the worst massacre of civilians in US history opens up a dialogue between proponents of Islam and what are termed ‘unbelievers,’” the President said. “And dialogue is what America is all about. That’s why the project must go forward.”

To show that his commitment goes beyond just words, the Administration has provided funding to help mosques get built. On the one hand, the US State Department is granting $16,000 for the Ground Zero Mosque’s Imam, Feisal Abdul Raul, to go on a round-the-world trip to raise donations to support the mosque’s construction. Raul thanked the President for “his support in helping spread Islam and bringing America a step closer to the day when sharia law shall replace the ‘devil’s document’ that now rules the land.” The ‘devil’s document’ is believed to be the US Constitution.

On the other hand, the US State Department has been quietly supplying funds for the construction of mosques in other countries. So far, mosques in Tanzania, Egypt, and Iraq have received funding from the United States government. Though normally quick to pounce on government aid to religious institutions, the ACLU has refrained from intervening on the grounds that “the government’s support of these mosques is undertaken for political rather than religious motivations,” said ACLU spokesman Bertram Petty.

Democratic National Committee Chair Tim Kaine said he “would be just as supportive of building a synagogue near the site if Jewish fanatics had been the ones who had destroyed the World Trade Center on 9-11. The fact that Muslim jihadis were responsible doesn’t change my commitment to freedom of religion one bit.”

Senator Russ Feingold (D-Wisc) expressed his concern that “a person’s position on this mosque will be used to affect the outcome of upcoming elections. This is a violation of the McCain-Feingold regulations that prohibit groups from speaking out against members of Congress during the 60 days before an election.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) demanded that those opposing the mosque be investigated by the US Department of Justice. “Our leader, President Obama, has already decided that this mosque deserves our support,” Pelosi said. “To persist in opposing it at this point is disloyal and tends to undermine his authority to rule America. Those committing such treasonous acts should face the full punishment permitted by law.”

Dems need to support this mosque b.s. and they really need to be fired by the electorate come November.

I suppose that the Dems will also be pushing for the approvals for the Greek Orthodox Church so that they can rebuild.

Oh, that's right, they're CHRISTIAN. Can't have that.

Wow. This sound like Adolph Hitler. Anybody that simply disagrees with our fuhrer will be invetigated! What is the next step, start rounding up anybody that simply disagrees and have them sent to concentration camps.

Keep it up, you idiots. Ed Schultz had 2 muslims bashing Franklin Graham and boosting the mosque. I’m starting to wonder if the RATS aren’t supporting this mosque in order to blame their upcoming loss of congress on “bigotry”.

Notice how ash hole Feingold thinks he can have it both ways hiding behind him and McAmnesty’s shameful bill. Sorry Russ you cooked your own goose by jumping into Obama’s mosque sinkhole.

This mosque issue is the final nail in the Democrats’ coffin. They are done for. This added to the Arizona lawsuit and the Gulf shutdown will bring us dozens more seats than we need.

Another good one John. Idea for next week: Pelosi starts a new HUAC.

Caroline Glick also touched upon the 911 mosque:

You know when about 50% of all your responses think this is true then you have hit that fine line, John!

Once again, what makes this so humorous is how close to reality it.

As I have said many times, what has actually happened in the last 2 years would have been seen as satire if post the 2 years before that.

I was at the National Archives today and was looking at the USC/BOR for the stains left on them by this president and congress as they have used them as T.P.

What the idiot Libtards don’t realize is that no matter how much they cozy up to the radical muslims, they would still kill them without batting an eye.

One would expect them to. The goal of the Democrat Party and the muslims is the destruction of the United States. Both will work on attaining this goal. Then the muslims will destroy the Democrats.

They need to make a COMMERCIAL out of this one!!

Something on the lines of “Democrats say they are for freedom and protection of free speech”, and the play that line with Bella Pelosi saying it”, then say something like “ Is that “freedom”?? And end with “remember ...in November”....Vote for REAL freedom and make a CHANGE, and bring some real HOPE to America!!

Warning: Semi-satire (IOW, this is not what the characters actually say in public so far).

Raul thanked the President for “his support in helping spread Islam and bringing America a step closer to the day when sharia law shall replace the ‘devil’s document’ that now rules the land.” The ‘devil’s document’ is believed to be the US Constitution.

Good job. Although it seems a little like cheating, when you can just quote the Democrats in their own words and then call it satire.
