Ground Zero Mosque Developers Applied for 9/11 Redevelopment Grant Money?
Republican Redefined ^ | T Christopher

I assume that you were particularly outraged by the headline there as I was when I stumbled upon it, so I will cut right to it.  Check out this story uncovered by the Daily Beast.

"Developers of the controversial Park51 Islamic community center and mosque located two blocks from ground zero earlier this month applied for roughly $5 million in federal grant money set aside for the redevelopment of lower Manhattan after the attacks of September 11, according to two sources with direct knowledge of the matter."

Read the full story here... and yes, its just as ridiculous as it sounds.  If you thought this was a dead issue... think again.  Round two stands to be ten times as tumultuous once this story gathers momentum.

I thought their claim was that the mosque was far enough away as not to be considered part of Ground Zero? Yet they want the grant money set aside to rebuild ground zero? Screw that! That right their proves they are liars and can not be trusted. Like we all didn’t already know that. NO GROUND ZERO MOSQUE!!!

This is just a bad joke, right? Is this from Comedy Central?

Mitt Romney deserves credit. Click below.
Romney is tied in through every aspect
of the Ground Zero Victory Mosque.
Was it an order from his JET Blue partner, Soros?
or something else?

How much of the money for these attacks against the GOP
by Team Romney were funded by money which Romney
got from the Victory Mosque at Ground Zero through Bain?

"Bain Capital, has cut checks totaling $90,000 to Romney's operation. "

"(The GroundZero Mosque) cleared its final hurdle ….
developers plan to build the $100 million center which will include a mosque.
Since its incipient stages in July 2009, when a Muslim-run real-estate development
company purchased the damaged, vacant building and land where the new center
will be built, the project has sparked controversy and debate.
.... the tattered building that was bought by the Muslim real estate company had
been owned by a subsidiary of Bain Capital, a company Romney founded in 1984.

So it's OK if his company can profit off the sale of the land ."

"Bain Capital, has cut checks totaling $90,000 to Romney's operation. "

Ground Zero mosque developers apply for federal grant
The developers behind the proposed Ground Zero mosque have applied
for about $5 million in federal grant money set aside for redeveloping
downtown Manhattan after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks....
run by the Lower Manhattan Redevelopment Corp.

Romney for President "

Standard bait-and-switch by the Left. (And though these are muzzies in this case, they are being aided and abetted by the American Left.)

First they say “it’s just a matter of simple rights. Check your constitution.”

And then they say, “you must pay for it.”

We’ve got to say: “HELL NO!”

Didn’t the president just sign a presidential order that no worship can happen in faith based organizations that get federal funds? Seems that some of that NYS money may be federal money..

I heard some talk jock on AM radio ask WHY shouldn’t they
get this money? My response would be —slay them wherever you find them ,or else bind them head and foot and if they subject to pay the poor rate/ ransom until the war is over it is allahs will. ANY butchering of their sacred text is intentional. Until New York City has honored its promises to the church destroyed when Islamic terrorists succeeded in
prosecuting their attack on the WTC- Until that church has seen New York city restore what the Muslims stole on 9-11
let the monkeys and pigs eat pork. I do not support ANY support given to our ENEMY.
