Pelosi: New Yorkers Should Decide on Mosque (Says it's a "zoning issue")
The San Francisco Chronicle ^ | Tuesday, August 17, 2010 | Drew Joseph

Posted on 08/17/2010 6:33:15 PM PDT by kristinn

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi today weighed in on the heated debate over the proposed Islamic community center in Manhattan, saying that New Yorkers should be left to decide on what she called a "zoning issue."

Asked by The Chronicle what her position was on the community center, which includes a prayer space that some opponents are referring to as the "ground zero mosque," Pelosi, D-San Francisco, said that she is leaving the issue to her colleagues in New York.

And when Doug Sovern of KCBS asked a follow-up question, Pelosi criticized those who are trying to use the issue for political gain and also offered a bit of a retort to us dang reporters for not focusing on why we were gathered there, which was something to do about transferring Treasure Island from the Navy to the city.

Shaky Hand Productions was there to capture Pelosi's reponses, and apologies for the poor sound quality. It was a bit windy (just ask Mayor Gavin Newsom's hair).

The WTC Victory Mosque is New York’s version of the Al Aqsa Mosque on the ruins of the Temple Mount.

Sorry Nancy, we know that you would be among the first to demand the punishment of anyone who urinated on your grave.

That botox is eating away at your frontal cerebral cortex ~ quite rapidly now.

Dear Nancy, if you think it’s a NY issue then STFU.

I imagine the braindead Ms. Polizei also believes that the attack on 09-11-01 was also a “zoning issue”. The muzzie terrorists didn’t like those damn towers standing there blocking out the sun.

How cowardly can a politician be...nah, don’t take a stand, just peddle it off as a “zoning issue”. Hey, Bela—guess you’re gonna have to build the mosque to find out what’s in it, eh, you botoxed old hag?

Actually, Pelosi has a point here in that NYC could easily solve this by zoning out religious buildings in the area. (all religions equally)in the interests of public saftey. Pelosi knows that’s how they keep out those they don’t like in lib cities - I see it as a signal of her saying, “just pass a zoning ordinance and put this to bed, you’re killing my majority by letting this fester”

Most people do not recognize that what happens in a mosque is sedition. Pure and simple. Islam is not just a “religion”, it is a cult, it is it’s own government, its judicial...is in its sharia, and its military (jihadis) all rolled into one with one intent ...and that is to rule wherever they take root. It is a invasive, systemic infection looking to take over the host once it has quantum.

This is not just a “religion”, but something that cloaks itself in those terms so it should not be given the same treatment contemplated under the first amendment. The Korans rules in Sharia are to consume whatever government there is wherever it goes. To supplant and replace.

The sooner America learns this , the better.

Obama? Obama and Company? Should be tried for treason in this issue for promoting the establishment of a foreign government on our soils. As a Muslim, he knows this, he knows sharia, but is looking to deceive America.

For all interested...Wanna learn more?

I've posted references to it several times. Just go to the Science News magazine site and look up BOTOX.

Young grad student did a pretty basic study and found that BOTOX seems to destroy your ability to tell that others are unhappy or angry.

Nancy definitely acts like she thinks everybody is happy.

I agree that it should be left a local issue and trust that New Yorkers will convince the Muslims to pick another site.

In following this logic I also think the Arizona “Illegal Alien” bill is also a “local” issue and other states should butt out of that as well.

Local and state governments are best positioned to govern.

Pelosi criticized those who are trying to use the issue for political gain .... (blah blah blah)

It's always amusing whenever some politician (usually Dem) accuses opponent politicians of using current issues for 'political gain' ... as if they are so high above the fray themselves ... it's sickening really.

Pelosi is not an American. She has no feeling for the American public or its feelings.

Nancy doesn’t give a hoot ‘cause she’s from San Fran. This would be a whole different story if she was from NYC.

Pelosi wouldn’t care if she was from New York City. She’s no different than that unfeeling oaf, Jerry Nadler.

I don't agree that the mosque is a local issue. They didn't attack NY, they attacked AMERICA. Just like Pearl Harbor, the Japanese didn't attack Hawaii, they attacked AMERICA. They attacked me. I live in AZ but am deeply disturbed by this mosque. I don't have to live near Ground Zero to recognize that it is AMERICAN hallowed ground.

I don't have to be a 911 family member to be pissed off by this mosque.

I can't type what I think of nancy.

I would think as someone who lives in AZ, you of all people should be wary of “outsiders” trying to make laws or policy for you. What did you think of all the Progressives telling you how you were a Racist for not wanting illegals in your country without having direct knowledge of how the problem is affecting your life and local area?

I don't want the Mosque there either. As a former upstate New Yorker, I trust New Yorkers to take care of this mess and convince the Muslims to pick another site without someone from Wash DC, Calif, or anywhere else telling them they are racist for not wanting it there.

My hunch is personally Nancy would like it to be there but is playing politics.

Even Pelosi is running from Obama.

Wow, we've entered an alternative universe...where the supposed "most powerful man in the world" stands alone.

There's nothing but a cold, quiet breeze at his back.

Pelosi is a perfect example of what it means to be out of touch with the American people. Did anyone actually believe that building a Mosque near Ground Zero was not going to be inflammatory?
