Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Ground Zero Mosque? Sure. But first…

I know, I know.  The AP told me I can’t call it the Ground Zero Mosque anymore…which, of course, means I’m going to call it the Ground Zero Mosque even more that I would have had they kept their leftist cakeholes shut.  Anywho, awesomely McAwesome analogy from Ace:

Is it time to return the Stars and Bars to the South Carolina State House?

I ask because I thought the rule was that an understandable revulsion to the memory of an emotionally-wounding time was enough to win out over a noisy, self-promoting group’s determination to advertise its views in a prominent, highly-symbolic area… but now I find that’s not so true, not so true.

So — Confederate flag at the SC statehouse again?

Because the people flying the flag there say they too have good, non-objectionable motivations for doing so — a reminder of heritage, honoring the dead, etc., etc. But previously we have shown skepticism towards their claimed motivations, and also decided their motivations were irrelevant — it wouldn’t even matter, we decided, if their motives were pure; the important thing was the Confederate flag was too hurtful to have near the people’s house of government.

Again, so I now find out this isn’t the rule anymore.

So if it’s not the rule anymore: Why can’t we have the Confederate flag at the SC statehouse?

Yes, I know, blacks (and others, including whites) consider it offensive and a nasty reminder of a national tragedy; but the spokesmen from Cordoba House have a response to such concerns, and that response is “F##k yourself, get over it already.”

So why doesn’t that work in South Carolina, too?

Why should we not take this “F##k yourself, get over it already” principle of moderate Muslim outreach wide and apply it to other emotionally-charged scenarios?

Bingo!

  1. Thing is the confederate flag is part of OUR history. Islam is not. Well except when they have killed, maimed or kidnapped and beheaded Americans.

    What I mean is NO GROUND ZERO MOSQUE. Confederate Flag, I don’t care. Up to that state.

  2. I love the analogy! I am a firm believer in what’s good for the goose is good for the gander. The liberals would soil themselves if they saw the Confederate (battle flag) flown in SC again. I don’t want to see a Mosque built next to ground zero any more than I want to see the United States Flag that so many have given their lives to protect burned in protest. That is what is so beautiful about this nation and it’s flag. That flag stands for the freedom and right to burn it in protest if you feel the need to. That flag will in a sense sacrifice itself to protect the freedoms for which it stands. For us as a nation to disallow our own citizens of muslim faith to build a mosque anywhere goes against the pricipals of liberty and freedom that we have built this country on. If we change our standards of freedom and liberty because of the attacks on Sept. 11 then the terrorists have won. Furthermore the victims of those attacks are and will remain the first casualties of the War on Terror. To allow freedom to be denied to any “Legal” citizen based on effects of a terrorist attack would make their sacrafice in vain.
    My statement to the Muslim community govern yourselves I’m not going to tell you that you can’t build your church there BUT I will tell you that you shouldn’t.

  3. Enough already.
    That imam was offered, free of charge, another parcel of land on which to build his “house of religion”.
    He refused.
    So it’s not about religion but the symbolism involved.

    To whichever liberal this concerns:

    I understand you have instructed your legions of Journolistas to no longer use the term, “Ground Zero Mosque”. As such, might I request as an alternative, “The Soetoro Memorial House of Nobel and Falafel”?

    Smooches,

  5. Ground Zero Mosque is just them slapping American citizenry in the face again. I wonder when will people say enough is enough!

  6. I’m really sick and tired of our “leaders” bending over backward to appease our enemies. This Imam is radical and this mosque should NEVER be built on American soil, much less Ground Zero.

    Did anyone see the protest over the weekend at Ground Zero with all the muslims carrying American flags with signs touting SHARIA?
    “Building bridges”… my foot! They’re building a monument and our leaders are helping them.

  7. You know what, how about some Southern Pride around Ground Zero? I’m sure that there were proud Southerners who died in the 9/11 atrocities. So how about a memorial to them, somewhere around Ground Zero. The Confederate Flag represents distinct Southern cultural pride? How about at their memorial, display the confederate flag!

    Not everyone who was part of the confederacy supported slavery, not every southerner was a slave owner. Why shouldn’t they be allowed to display their flag with the same pride that the Muslims in NYC are displaying their mosque.
