Skip to comments.Dunn acts as Obama attack dog on mosque, says GOP ’solidifying its reputation for intolerance’
Posted on 08/17/2010 7:15:21 AM PDT by maggief
Former White House communications director director Anita Dunn on Tuesday launched a furious attack against Republicans who have criticized President Obamas remarks on the Ground Zero mosque, labeling the GOP as the party of intolerance.
The Republican party as solidifying its reputation for intolerance in this year, for almost any kind of difference in American society, is going down a very dangerous long term road, Dunn said on MSNBCs Morning Joe.
They might see some short term things although I think the American people are better than that, she said.
Coming from Dunn who is no longer works for the Obama administration but still goes to the White House for regular message meetings the attacks on the GOP could be viewed as having been coordinated with top advisers to the president such as David Axelrod and Dan Pfeiffer, her former deputy who now runs Obamas communications shop.
But when asked by e-mail, Dunn told the Daily Caller that Axelrod and Pfeiffer did not know, approve, or suggest her comments, which she said were her own personal opinions.
Numerous times, Dunn sought to characterize the debate over the mosque as one which pits those who want to preserve religious freedom against a Republican party which she said is labeling all Muslims in this country as terrorists.

I invented the "liberal Look"...deal with it!
Guess what Dunn, we are also intollerant of kooks who lovingly reference Mao Tse Tung to college kids.
How “tolerant” were those Communists you love Dunn?
Coming from the intolerant side of the political spectrum, I think this is a complement. At times, imho, it is perfectly ok to be intolerant.
This is intolerance:
Saudi Arabia - Conversion by a Muslim to another religion is punishable by death. Bibles are illegal. Churches are illegal. Easter celebrations are illegal. It is punishable by death for a non-mulsim to enter the “holy” muslim cities of Medina and Mecca.
Yemen - Bans proselytizing by non-Muslims and forbids conversions. The Government does not allow the building of new non-Muslim places of worship.
Kuwait - Registration and licensing of religious groups. Members of religions not sanctioned in the Koran may not build places of worship. Prohibits organized religious education for religions other than Islam.
Egypt - Islam is the official state religion and primary source of legislation. Accordingly, religious practices that conflict with Islamic law are prohibited. Muslims may face legal problems if they convert to another faith (up to and including death). Requires non-Muslims to obtain what is now a presidential decree to build a place of worship.
Northern Cyprus - About 133 churches, chapels and monasteries have been converted to military storage facilities, stables and night-clubs. Seventy-eight churches have been converted to mosques, and dozens more are used as military facilities, medical storage facilities, or stockyards or hay barns, according to statistics from The Republic of Cyprus. Agia Anastasia Church in Lapithos was converted into a hotel and casino, while the Sourp Magar Armenian monastery founded in the medieval period was converted into a cafeteria.
Algeria - The law prohibits public assembly for purposes of practicing a faith other than Islam. Non-Islamic proselytizing is illegal, and the Government restricts the importation of non-Islamic literature for distribution. The country has passed the “Regulation of Religious Practice” law, which stipulates a punishment of two to five years’ imprisonment and heavy fines for anyone convicted of urging a Muslim to change his religion.
Syria - The constitution requires the president to be a Muslim and specifies that Islamic jurisprudence is a principal source of legislation. Sharing your Christian faith is discouraged as “posing a threat to the relations among religious groups” and carries a penalty of up to life in prison. A Christian is not allowed to proselytize ever. Churches who want to hold an extra service must get a government permit. Sermons are routinely monitored, as is church fundraising.
Jordan - Has the death penalty for any Muslim selling land to a Jew.
Sudan - Conversion by a Muslim to another religion is punishable by death.
Pakistan - Conversion by a Muslim to another religion is punishable by death. Bans proselytizing by non-Muslims. Christians regularly put in prison for charges of blasphemy. Islam is the state religion, and in a court of law the testimony of a Christian carries less weight than that of a Muslim. Section 295(c) of the Penal Code calls for a death sentence for anyone who defiles the name of the Prophet Muhammad and requires the testimony of four Muslims for a conviction. This fosters an environment in which Muslims can feel free to use intimidation and violence against religious minorities for personal gain. Also, if any criminal Muslim rape with any Christian female and then take plea that she has accepted Islam and marry with him. Such person is not culpable under Pakistani criminal law
Qatar - Islamic instruction is compulsory in public schools. The government regulates the publication, importation, and distribution of non-Islamic religious literature. The government continues to prohibit proselytizing of Muslims by non-Muslims.
Malaysia - Under Malaysian law, any convert to Christianity must apply to a shariah (Muslim law) court to legally renounce Islam. Many Christians prefer to remain silent converts rather than take their battle to the shariah courts, where apostasy or conversion out of Islam is punishable by whipping, fines, imprisonment and—in the most extreme application—death. In a country where Muslims account for more than half of the population, conversion from Islam is punished with a 5-year prison sentence and a $3,000 fine. A Malaysian Muslim who marries a non-Muslim and who converts the non-Muslim to Islam is rewarded with an apartment, a car, a one-time payment of $2,700, and a monthly stipend of $270.
The Maldives - In the island paradise visited by tens of thousands of tourists each year, Christianity is simply not tolerated. While local Christians said to number around 300 out of a total population of 300,000 do get together to worship, they do so at the risk of imprisonment or worse if discovered by the Muslim authorities. Bibles are banned, and tourists can be arrested for trying to bring them into the country.
England - Bradford, Yorkshire, UK. Pop. 300,000 - 20% Islamic. Local police required to tell community elders the location of girls who run away to escape arranged marriages. Bars and liquor stores in the Lumb Lane / Manningham Lane area of the city requested to close on Fridays. Schools, colleges, and health clinics have to have separate areas for women, with a copy of the Koran available. Public critcism of Islam or its adherents, such as letters to the local paper, emails to friends, speeches etc, can and has led to criminal charges Using words intentionally and wilfully to cause fear, hate, or distress. Christmas decorations not to be put up, as this may make the Moslems feel culturally overshadowed. Shops requested not to display easter eggs for the same reason. The term requested means not legally enforceable but local police warn that they cannot intervene if your premises get damaged somehow. Local councillors and MPs have encouraged all this for the past 15 years. Bradford Northwest MP Ann Cryer regularly appears with long sleeves and her head covered. She once stated that women in Islam are properly liberated and that Islam is an example to us all.
Guilty - no chance of parole!
Maybe she should start with members of her own party.....like Harry Reid. Does she want to direct any comments toward him?
Please keep up these informative rantings, okay?
At least until after the elections!
What Washington doesn’t realize is that the American people have made up their minds about muslims. Not the Republican Party. People are tired of losing our culture in favor of the Presidents culture......muslims.
“”Numerous times, Dunn sought to characterize the debate over the mosque as one which pits those who want to preserve religious freedom against a Republican party which she said is labeling all Muslims in this country as terrorists.””
Obama labeled our returning warriors and Tea Party patriots as terrorists. Pick a side. As for me and my house, we will join the ‘intolerant’ Republicans who fight against a muslim monument of conquest built on the grave site of my countrymen. And you?
At least now we are all just religous bigots instead of racists.
Maybe GOP is listening to the voice of the people of the US. Like the way Nancy the Pig obeys the ghost of Alinsky Marx Stalin etc. Novel idea.
The human lizard speaks.
Typical, transparent Commie tactic.
Accuse your opponent of fear and ignorance, with the new buzzwords of “intolerance”, “racism” and “hate-speech”.
The Communists have been deploying these juvenile word game/emotion-driven propaganda ploys since the days of Lenin.
The best response is a direct and frontal assault on their lies.
I have news for Anita Dunce; the real intolerant are those that want to build the mosque to begin with. Good luck with all that coexistence stuff.
The majority of Americans are against you and your boy child President.
What a dumbass.
The magnificent, Mao-loving, tolerant Dunn.
I know idiot-ridden socialist and Maoist radical Anita Dunn is not opening her mouth on this issue....=.=
keep digging bitch. if you don’t bury yourself, we’ll bury you. we got the numbers on this one....
Why the hell is the MSM not talkig about this? I am sick of us looking like the bad guys.
Intolerance can be a good thing. I wonder if “zero tolerance” is considered a form of intolerance.
Idiots. Worse, they think the citizens are, mainly because we proved it a couple years ago.
I have to say, the most intolerant people I know are my liberal friends. That’s one thing I enjoy about Face Book. My liberal friends out themselves as intolerant jerks all the time.
Pat Buchanan asked her what about the intolerance for the Americans who lost family at the WTC? What about the intolerance for the feelings of most Americans?
She looked like he just punched her in the stomach, and stumbled for a reply. Fortunately for Dunn, MSNBC is a communist friendly organization, and Mr. Buchanan’s questions were all but ignored from that point on.
Joe Scarborough has really grown into his postion as a lapdog. If Joe is a Republican, I’m Ghengis Khan.
Shut up, Anita and take your meds.
Add ‘status quo’ to the list, too. They LOVE that one.
To hell with that hag and all the other O-holes around the usurper.
The democrat administration of Bill Clinton’ slaughter of 80 plus men, women, and children of a Christian religious group in WACO Texas.
You will see and enjoy quite a bit of our intolerance this November... commies.
“”The best response is a direct and frontal assault on their lies.””
This is worth repeating.
“”The best response is a direct and frontal assault on their lies.””
I had great fun engaging a lib at the local pub a while back. It was during the GWBush admin and his angle was ‘why is it okay for us to bomb cities but wrong for the 911 hijackers, blah blah blah. As he was making his point (in convoluted fashion) I patiently waited for him to come up for air.
Then I gave my answer. “Because we are good and they are bad.” I left it at that. I thought his head would burst. When you drill them with confident moral conviction they just simply can not comprehend it. Oh what fun.
Reading through the list of how islam is enforced in those countries, how do people not see what a weak god allah must be.
I can never get that picture out of my mind. It was so much like an episode of V.
Psst. Say these are your own personal opinions.
Tolerance is the vehicle that Liberals use to bring about change through Judicial Activism as a prelude to the new intolerance.
Did Joe kiss her feet at the end of the interview or before?
What psople are not talking about is where islamabama made the remarks. At a ramadan dinner in the white house. No media type, and I mean NO media type, are bringing up this point. The man was speaking to his muslim brethren. I wonder if there were any non-muslims present at the dinner. And WHO are these muslim who were present?
Intolerance for communist subversives is a virtue.
I nominate you for "Quote of the Day".
Un-huh. The Left is a criminal conspiracy.
Call me intolerant but what is a liberal Friend? Rather befriend a rattlesnake...they elected the Zero and losers like this Dunn. They are my enemies and there is no doubt about it. Friends are folks that share my viewpoints etc.
Yes, Republicans not tolerating Commies or Headchoppers would tick off the Commies and Headchoppers.
READ this blog and then let’s use the laws existing to prohibit the unlawful practices of Izlum . . . stoning, child brides, pedophilia, are already illegal.
...the Sedition Act of 1918 and the 1954 Communist Control Act give us some guidelines for cracking down on Islam.
I am all for intolerance of Islam. I am also in favor of intolerance towards ugly Maoist bitches.
The horror!! The dems are intolerant of the intolerant!
Typical leftist ‘move to the basket’. These kinds of moronic remarks should be immediately responded to with very strong remarks that denigrate this idiot’s talking points. Anita, how do you define ‘intolerance’? Flying airplanes full of innocent people, including women and children, into buildings full of innocent people because you want to kill those who don’t think like you is ‘intolerance’. Wanting to prevent salt from being poured into the wounds of the victims is not intolerance. But what do you know of ‘tolerance’ Anita? You worship Mao, an architect of the Cultural Revolution. How tolerant was that? Is Mao’s China your shining example of ‘tolerance’?
Anita, I’m left to think that either you are truly dumber than we thought, or that you have no respect for the intelligence of Americans. You are not only wrong, but you are ironically painting yourself with the same brush of ‘intolerance’ with which you are trying to paint those who disagree with your sophomoric world view. I feel sorry for you. You really need to read more and open up your mind.
This has got to be the biggest meatball of a political issue of all time.
Islamic radicals fly civilian airplanes into the WTC killing 3000+ Americans.
Islamic radicals want to build a victory shrine as close as possible to the site
support or oppose?
After showing their true anti-American, islamic terrorist sympathies, the Libs are now spinning faster than the Tasmanian Devil. talk about EPIC FAIL
This ugly Maoist beotch would have to sneak up on a glass of water.
This is what passes for "babe" in Liberaland.
