Skip to comments.'Nazi' Pelosi: Investigate Opposition to 9/11 Mosque
Posted on 08/17/2010 7:21:10 PM PDT by kristinn
Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) today called for an investigation of those opposing the mosque being planned for construction a block away from the site of the September 11, 2001, terror attacks on New York City that toppled the Twin Towers at the World Trade Center complex in lower Manhatten and killed nearly 3000 people.
Speaking to reporters in San Francisco, Pelosi at first deferred to New Yorkers on the mosque, calling it an "urban development question" for them to decide.
"I think everybody respects the right of people in our country to express their religious beliefs on their property. The decision though as to how to go forward in New York is up to New York," Pelosi said.
Pelosi reiterated that New Yorkers should decide in response to a follow-up question about Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) differing with President Barack Obama on the construction of the mosque, but then launched into a brief tirade against being questioned on the mosque and demanded an investigation be made into the opposition to the mosque.
"There is no question there is a concerted effort to make this a political issue by some. And I join those who have called for looking into how is this opposition to the mosque being funded. How is this being ginned up that here we are talking about Treasure Island, something we've been working on for decades, something of great interest to our community as we go forward to an election about the future of our country and two of the first three questions are about a zoning issue in New York City," hissed Pelosi.
Audio of Pelosi's comments was posted by KCBS-AM-FM which ignored Pelosi's call to investigate the opposition to the mosque in its summary of her remarks--likewise for the San Francisco Chronicle.
Dissent is unpatriotic.
Until they’re out of power.
I guess Nancy Pelosi is going to “investigate” Harry Reid. Now, I’d pay to see that.
When the Muslims took over Palestine they built a mosque on the very site where the Jewish temple had been torn down. Building a mosque on Ground Zero is like a dog mark his territory. Islam thinks it was victorious on 9/11 and to the victor go the spoils.
Good. Investigate all 70% of the American people who oppose this. In fact, conduct show trials. I’d love to see it.
Hissed??? The San Francisco Chronical reporter said she hissed??? Really?
What Good Can a Handgun Do Against An Army?
Keep pushing the people Pelosi!
Typical lib, believing that all political points of view must be ginned up and funded. Hey, Nancy--anyone with half a brain (that eliminates all democrats) realizes how insensitive this would be towards the friends and families of the 3000 innocents who perished there on that horrific day.
All dissenters on the Right must be investigated! Sounds like a witch hunt in the making!
“Islam thinks it was victorious on 9/11 and to the victor go the spoils.”
I guess they haven’t seen what we did to al queda in Iraq and Afghanistan...
Since I pay taxes, I pay for the schools and public buildings. That would make those schools and public buildings my property. Tell the ***holes at the aCLU to knock of the bull**** before I bring a lawsuit against them for violating my freedom of religion.
America has become a bad movie with some sick twisted minds running the projector.
What’s to investigate?
If the dems think there is something to investigate about Americans just saying they need to build the mosque elsewhere in another location and not near ground zero then they have truly become the Nazi fascists they call others.
Nancy Pelosi is reprehensible if she thinks good but opinionated Americans should be investigated for their values, beliefs and principles.
Pelosi is a totalitarian despotic liberal fascist bully and she needs to be replaced and voted out of office...the sooner the better.
Islam is Anti-Representative-Republic and therefore should be eradicated from the the United States of America.
Investigate Nazi for having an automatic, large bore gavel.
LoL. Not how is the mosque being funded, but how is the opposition to it being funded.
No, I did.
She wants to know where the the funds are coming from to pay for the opposition to the mosque. Is she out of her mind. Well, you know what I mean.
How about - we want to know where the funds are coming from - regarding building the mosque and we don’t want our money being used to help raise money to build the mosque.
In fact, we want to know where all of our money is going these days? Geez, what a racket. What nerve.
