Posted on 08/14/2010 12:01:43 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
One of the leading groups representing families who lost loved ones in the 9/11 attacks blasted President Barack Obama Saturday for supporting the construction of a mosque near the site of the attack.
The group 9/11 Families for a Safe & Strong America said it was "stunned" by the president's remarks.
Obama "has abandoned America at the place where America's heart was broken nine years ago, and where her true values were on display for all to see," the group said.
"Now this president declares that the victims of 9/11 and their families must bear another burden. We must stand silent at the last place in America where 9/11 is still remembered with reverence or risk being called religious bigots."

Building the mosque "is a deliberately provocative act that will precipitate more bloodshed in the name of Allah," the group claimed.
Several prominent Republican leaders on Saturday also attacked Obamas speech and suggested the motive behind the mosque was deliberately provocative.
"He is ignoring the will of the American public," former Sen. Rick Santorum, who represented Pennsylvania in the Senate, told Fox News on Friday. The community center would "desecrate the ground of those who were murdered by people who practice the faith, or at least an element of the faith, that is being represented by that mosque."
"Islam is not just a religion, it is also a political doctrine," Santorum said. Ahead of the dinner talk, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin asked on her Twitter account: "Will Obama express US lingering pain & ask Muslims for tolerance by discouraging 9/11 mosque while he celebrates Islamic holy month tonight?" Both she and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich have said the mosque should not be built.
Later she re-Tweeted without comment a headline about Obama's mosque endorsement.

I am CRYING for America.
Yeah, well. “We won.” Tough excrement.
Which is the whole idea.
Dumbest most anti American anti white anti Christian president ever and certainly most corrupt plus less experienced ever
Yeah, but he's clean, according to Joe Biden, one of his fellow geniuses.
but he’s also not got a negro accent unless he wants one according to Reid.
Biden probably still does not get it why he was chosen.
He’s an outsider to Chicago and dumb as two thick planks who does not understand what his leader is doing
Good for them. He deserves it. His actions are an insult to the memory of what happened, and to those whose innocent lives were lost. He should apologize to the people of the United States for being so morally and emotionally obtuse.
1st Muslim President of America.....for one world government under sharia law.
Traitor to the Constitution of the United States of America.
Everything he touches is ruined. November will dispel all doubt as the Dems will soon discover.
This president ain’t right.
“Dumbest most anti American anti white anti Christian president ever and certainly most corrupt plus less experienced ever...”
We have to stop referring to this reprobate as “president”. He is NOT a president, he is NOT an American, and he is NOT one of the people. He is a foreign enemy of the United States and its founding documents.
LOL - see my sig.
If anyone could give this story enough "legs" so the media can't ignore it, it would be the 9/11 families.
While we allow religious freedom in this country (and that includes allowing the ragheads to build a mosque if they want), the choice of location is TRULY TASTELESS and insensitive to those affected directly (victims) and indirectly (me and other Americans).
Obama has no class whatsoever. Low class.
“I am CRYING for America.”
You’re not alone. Mrs. panax just told me she heard yesterday that the zer0 wants to do away with American History and study of the Constitution in schools. Plus, he said that recommended reading for High School students should be Saul Alinsky’s ‘Rules for Radicals’. I hope she heard wrong. Can anyone verify this report?
Isn’t there even ONE Senator or Congressman left to start the ball rolling on IMPEACHMENT OF THIS COMMUNIST?
But they will still vote for him.
Re your post #10 — short and to the point and on target.
To those families who did not vote for Zero, I feel your pain.What a slap in the face. To the families that did vote for him, you voted for a muslim who is just like those responsible for your family members deaths. We are at war for the soul of this nation, I cannot feel sorry for you.
