Joe Scarborough on Monday bashed former House Speaker Newt Gingrich for saying the building of the Ground Zero mosque would be like putting a Nazi sign next to the Holocaust Museum...
The next day on MSNBC's "Morning Joe," Scarborough let Gingrich have it...

I never heard any of this! He resigned?
I actually don’t understand your conflating Gitmo with the mosque. They have nothing to with each other from a legal perspective or social compact.
They knew there would be one hell of an issue with most Americans.
And the only real reason for their building this edifice is as a monument, is just completely insensitive and is meant to insult us.
And if rights are rights then there should be no problem with opening a butcher shop, next door that caters mainly to those who prefer pork products.
Could even follow Greg Gutfields suggestion that a gay bar be opened across the street. My suggestion for the name is “Bottoms Up”.
Next to that they could open a porn shop and a porn theater. Heck, it could be called “The Pornicopia Mall”.
Boy, that’s the truth! And, it would be a good first step to see them acquiesce on this issue. It could be the beginning of something truly great. But it will have to come from them because they cannot come from government.
Bingo. I noted this on an earlier thread (one claiming that government workers got paid twice as much as everybody else -- basically, it came down to a junk-statistics trick of just averaging the two groups together without comparing jobs at equivalent education and experience levels).
The Great And Powerful Oz is pulling out all his pyrotechnic arts to get you to look anywhere other than behind the curtain.
I am not sure if those rights have been tested.
What about the new place that the mosque is moved to?
Do the people living in that community have right to object? Were they not hurt just as much as anyone else on 9/11? What about community where lots of kids are serving in armed forces and that community is losting its sons and daughters?
What about someone who tries to build a church or synagogue in heavy muslim areas of Michigan? Can they on the grounds of mid-east conflict claim offense and demand certain arbitrary distance to move them?
If politicians didn’t make it a big issue that is has become, then community could have solved it amongst themselves, and if people were genuinely outraged, then that city-council would have been voted out.
Now that is HAS become a flash point, to me it is rights issue now.
You have absolutely NO earthly idea what you are talking about. Don’t come here and fling bald faced lies, please.
You mean kinda like the Greek Orthodox? church that the powers that be have NOT allowed to be rebuilt since it was demolished on 9/11?
I assure you, with ALL MY HEART, I support Gutfeld’s Gay Muslim Bar and Pork Butcher shop at Park 50 and Park 52 respectively.
If I was Billionare, I would make it happen.
As for my point, I am not saying it is exactly same, but in terms of OFFENSE, people didn’t want those prisoners from Gitmo moved to their state, for either security reasons, or just not wanting certain filth in their community.
We have to let people offend each other. That is MUCH SAFER than people not allowed to offend each other.
I talked to a guy the other day and told me that Mexicans were taking his job away. I took the hat off his head and showed him the label inside. It said “Made in China.”
Get the hell out, ya freakin’ furriner.
And take your idol ron paul with you.
It's time that the 8 million move or get moved out of this nation - close every Mosque. This nation was & is a Christian nation. Dump this cult that masks as a religion. Do some good people get dumped? Yep. It's called collateral damage. If not, do you want to be another France?
Ron himself would be the first to admit that he is not an idol.
So let me make own absurd conflation. A convicted child molester serves his time and is no longer on parole.
Should he be allowed to live next to a school or anywhere he chooses?
I mean, what could people possible be offended by and shouldn’t we all get along, though we might find offense in proximity to certain people or things? /s
Or! Shouldn’t men and women be allowed to share the same bathroom? Don’t laugh, this is common in Asia.
Joe Scarsborough just wants to be liked by liberals. He is now an idiot. Took Newt out of context just like every other liberal does. He now is no better.
Jos has been dumb as a rock for a long time. No he's a dumb lefty rock making the same tired arguments that all lefties make. For example to oppose his opinion you must be a hater, a racist, a bigot or some unGodly mixture of all three.
This has never been about a private properties owners rights, that right is recognized by all except the liberals on the SCOTUS who gave us the Kelo holding. It is about the freedom of speech that Scarbourough thouroughly hates. It is totally American for citizens to express their displeasure at this mosque being built by these characters at this location. It would be unAmerican for the heavy hand of the state to tell them they Can Not build on their properry.
Dumb Joe can't get through his thick lefty skull and neither can some fools on this thread.
Ask Joe if putting a dead girl there would help.
nah...he just has some odd views on Israel and Islam
but is right about some things too
