This incident really draws a sharp distinction between those who see the insult a Muslim Mosque next to Ground Zero would be and those who prattle on about 'tolerance' without realizing the ramifications of effectively bowing to the wishes of those who share a religion with the same people who willfully murdered almost 3,000 human beings on September 11, 2001 and now want to erect a symbol of that same religion that is an insult to the memory of those who died.
This kind of selective amnesia is one reason why the media quickly stopped running film of the burning World Trade Center and the horror of people jumping to their deaths to escape the enveloping flames. Flames caused by a hijacked airliner flown by young Muslim fanatics seeking to 'honor' their god by murdering people. How many clips of that film have been seen on TV since a few days following 9/11? I haven't seen any - and I doubt we ever will again. It would spoil the game of playing 'tolerance' and 'understanding' that the left enjoys - if America and it's people are the victim.
However, Muslims seem to play that game very well, don't they? Crying about 'religious freedom' (try building a Christian church in Saudi Arabia), 'tolerance', 'reaching out', blah, blah, blah. All the stupid buzz words that send a tingle up liberal's legs. It's a sham. They want to build a symbol of what they consider a victory over America, and the brain-dead folks that authorized this monstrosity played along. The NYC mayor, Michael Bloomberg, a fake 'Republican' (yeah, right) is just as bad, but who would have expected better? I didn't.
Sarah Palin gets it - so the left wants to silence her. It won't happen. This Facebook 'glitch' is almost funny if it didn't, once again, demonstrate the petty nonsense liberals will engage in to silence opposition. They failed. They'll keep failing. Sarah wins. She'll keep winning. God bless her.
You know, that's exactly right.
Suppose we even accept the proposition (oft-claimed, but little evidenced) that 99% of Muslims are peaceful, non-Jihadist "regular folks", and that our problems stem solely from the extremist 1%, the 10 or 15 million "radical Islamists". Your argument still applies.
If an extremist "Presbyterian Liberation Front" group had blown up the Federal Building in Oklahoma City, you wouldn't find many Presbyterians demanding to build a Presbyterian church on the site. Even if we rightly maintained our innocence regarding the actions of the extremists, we wouldn't ask to build a Presbyterian church on the graves of their victims. We'd kinda realize that doing so would be just rude to the families of the dead, if nothing else! We wouldn't have to have it explained to us...
Of course, that's even without mentioning the probably-intolerant observation that, relative to Muslim extremism, you really don't see very many Presbyterians blowing up any buildings at all.
