Obama supports Ground Zero mosque

Naturally.

The people of New York who don’t want it? They’re just going to have to learn how to be good Americans.

  1. “The principle that people of all faiths are welcome in this country, and will not be treated differently by their government, is essential to who we are. The writ of our Founders must endure.”

    Lunatic.

  2. Because Valerie Jarrett told him to.

  3. as enthusiastic suckers of cock go he’s a pretty goddamn fabulous president

  4. Obama, speaking to ABC’s George Stephanopoulos on “This Week,” was talking about what he described as “smears” that were claiming he was a Muslim when he maintains he is a practicing Christian.

    “Let’s not play games,” Obama stated. “What I was suggesting – you’re absolutely right that John McCain has not talked about my Muslim faith. And you’re absolutely right that that has not come.”

    Stephanopoulos immediately interrupted Obama, stating, “Christian faith.”

  5. Well, unlike Clinton, no one can claim that he’s “governing by polling data” — so he’s got that going for him.

  6. WASHINGTON, DC, August 6, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – On Thursday, President Obama praised Kenya for approving a controversial new constitution that liberalizes abortion laws and that partially implements Muslim Sharia law within Kenya’s borders.

    “This was a significant step forward for Kenya’s democracy,” President Obama stated, “and the peaceful nature of the election was a testament to the character of the Kenyan people.”

    The new constitution was approved by about 70% of voters. It permits abortion for the sake of the “health” of the mother – a term that opponents of unborn rights admit can be “broadly interpreted when need be” to help bring about abortion on demand.

    It also carves out legal space for Muslim khadi courts, which handle family issues in accord with Sharia law. Only about 12% of Kenya is Muslim.

  7. “all men shall be free to profess, and by argument to maintain, their opinions in matters of religion.”

    Al Qaeda’s cause is not Islam – it is a gross distortion of Islam.

    jihadwatch isn’t on your bookmarks or you wouldn’t say such a silly thing

  9. not you sdferr

  10. Obama seems to think that he alone is fit to decide what is Islam and what is not, all while quoting Jefferson to the effect that each man [Osama or Ayman, for instance] must be free to profess for himself what his religion is. Such immediate self-contradiction is the mark of extreme unselfawareness, if not insanity.

  13. sdferr, you hit the nail on the head, insanity.

    Last few months I’ve come to the conclusion the world is, ultimately, insane. Its always been insane. Sure, now and then we have a few leaders, politicians, monarchs, etc that pierce the veil of madness, entirely or only momentarily during the course of their rule, but most people are just downright insane. Its thanks to the internet we can see this fact more clearly then at any previous time in human history. If you have no perspective, you would tend think things around you were normal too (otherwise, you may end up in Siberia. Your experiences may differ!).

    We have a madman leading us straight to the gates of oblivion right now. I thank whatever, if any, greater force in the universe every day that we have a few bastions of sanity on the internet such as protein wisdom.

    For as long as the FCC tolerates our presence anyways.

  14. Of course he supports the mosque. Was there any question?

  15. here’s a good article about how your cocksucker president plans to kick our little country’s oil industry in the balls

  16. I remember when Baracky wanted to lose a whole war. Plus ca change, plus c’est la meme chose.

  17. otherwise, you may end up in Siberia

    General Motors recorded a profit of $1.3 billion or $2.55 per share in the second quarter of the year, compared to a loss of 12.9 billion or $21.12 in the second quarter of 2009, when the automaker was in the midst of bankruptcy filing.

    The automaker relied heavily on rental-car, government and corporate fleets to drive sales, which are, however, less profitable than retail sales.*

  19. We have a madman leading us straight to the gates of oblivion right now. I thank whatever, if any, greater force in the universe every day that we have a few bastions of sanity on the internet such as protein wisdom.

    The Force, indeed. Left to our own devices, we’re gonna blow it all up. It looks like it’s going to be quite a ride and I hope I’m around long enough to see the good guys win. They’d best saddle up quick.

    Overpopulation was an early concern and interest. In a 1969 article, Holdren and co-author Paul R. Ehrlich argued that, “if the population control measures are not initiated immediately, and effectively, all the technology man can bring to bear will not fend off the misery to come.”[19] In 1973 Holdren encouraged a decline in fertility to well below replacement in the United States, because “210 million now is too many and 280 million in 2040 is likely to be much too many.”[20

  26. I’m starting to see red, it’s like this rage that keeps building, every day a new insult, a new smear. I can see November from my house. It’s gonna be ugly for the Dems.

  27. Congress is considering far-reaching legislation that would impose new environmental safeguards on offshore drilling, repeal oil-industry-friendly provisions of energy policy, hit producers with a new tax to fund conservation programs and eliminate the $75-million liability cap on economic damages from oil spills.

    This is bad because

  28. Barcky focused on their Right to do so, not whether or not it was right. Whether they can, not whether they should. It is the weasel way out.

  29. AJB – Does your head hurt? Have you learned to tie your shoes yet?

    Oh, that liability cap is already meaningless, you fucking imbecile.

    He could hire Anthony Zerbe as his campaign manger: “Here is the instrument of cleansing, my brethren. And nothing quite cleanses like fire.”

  33. This is bad because

    Since you disappear like a stupid, gutless bitch every time you comment, the least you could do is express complete thoughts when you drop by. Or just kill yourself. We’re fine with that too.

  34. Obama is a moron, honest. Anyone who would take moral instruction from such a person deserves whatever ills befall them.

  35. well, little driveby troll, maybe because all those measures apply to AMERICAN oil companies

    The Chinese and the Brazilians are going to be just fine sitting off Cuba’s coast slant drilling into American Gulf reserves.

    and the Watermelon Left will still shriek we can’t build nuclear plants

    they don’t want prosperity..they want America to cease being America.

  36. Coming this fall on NBC!
    “Have Apology, Will Travel” Friday 9:00pm
    An obsequious, America-hating President wanders the globe ignoring centuries of diplomatic precedent by bowing before every despot, tyrant and human-rights abusing junta he can find. Tonight, Obama promotes a provocative Islamic insult at Ground Zero, then travels to Pyongyang to obediently lick Kim Jong-Il’s boots while simultaneously defecating on Old Glory.

    It’s more “Must See TV” from NBC.

  37. Obama is an absolute disgrace as prsident. He isn’t even pretending to like America.

  38. they don’t want prosperity..they want America to cease being

    Fixed it for ya…

  39. When other North American Muslim leaders are calling the Ground Zero mosque “a deliberate provocation“, this tin-eared amateur President deigns lecture the American people on tolerance.

  45. It’s almost like Obama wants something bad to happen to him so he’s JFK and not “Worse than Carter”.

    That cannot happen. I would be very sad if I was deprived of the pleasure of Obama’s childish-meltdown concession speech. I’ve already got a little tingle.

  46. If I were that was.

  47. I am waiting for a single statement from Obama, a single thought in his teeny little reptilian brain, one tiny action from him that will disprove my theory that he has been put in office by God Himself in order to destroy the Democrat Party right down to its roots.

    If, like Bill Clinton, he lives by polls, he must read them carefully and then set out promptly to do the exact opposite of what the focus groups say they want.

    Behold, democrats, your much vaunted, and eagerly awaited Im.Be.Cile, now in the process of stopping your precious ‘long march’ in its tracks.

    Right. They’ll create a new Department of Fire Control to get it done.

  52. create a new Department of Fire Control

    Too hard. New czar is easier.

  53. The mosque really isn’t a problem.

    We just put the same people in charge of it that are “constructing” the Freedom Tower, and voila! It never gets built.

    Problem solved.

  54. Yeah, but that’s just one job, geoffb. Creating several hundred is better.

  55. looks like Mr. Treacher’s business instincts are bang on

    The Cordoba House community center is the brainchild of Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, who told Reuters in an interview last month that he had modeled it on the Young Men’s Christian Association.*

  56. richard dreyfuss should be in charge

    and he’s jewish

  57. teri garr for czar of sitars…

  58. From ‘feets link:

    Mark Williams, a spokesman for the conservative Tea Party political movement, said the center would be used for “terrorists to worship their monkey god.”

    Don’t you just love the incestuous relationship between self-appointed leaders who crave exposure and reporters who want to quote crazy-sounding rightists?

  60. Re: #51

    People is DC love to scurry around in a self-important, self absorbed, don’t-you-know-who-I-am fashion with their eyes glued to their smart phones, all of them convinced that they are at the very center of the universe, and if the next meeting/fax/conference/white paper doesn’t get done then IT’S THE END OF THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT!!!!

    The remarkable thing about them is their almost total lack of awareness regarding how little of vale the drones in DC really produce, and how much it costs them to produce it.

    The staggering damage wrought by the poorly thought-out regulations they do manage to excrete is inconsequential since all that really matters is the fact that their next meeting is CENTRAL TO LIFE AS WE KNOW IT!!!!

    But you must understand that the members of this DC based cult of self-regard do not care about anything outside of themselves. If you don’t live in DC it is difficult to imagine how insulated these people are from real life and the easily forseeable consequences of their policies. They are barely aware that you serfs who are outside the Beltway even exist.

  61. I personally like the monkey god comment. I think it fits old Mo’ to a T.

  62. Well, it’s not like they’d be doing something really offensive like singing the Star Spangled Banner at the Lincoln Memorial.

  63. Well the local Bedouins worshipped the Moon god, god Williams can be an embarassing git at times

  64. People can think and say whatever they want, Mr. W. My point is that I don’t recall there being a vote on positions like “spokesman for the conservative Tea Party political movement”.

    Did I miss that?

  65. Mark Williams is the one they kicked out cause of he’s an asshole

  66. I think it’s safe to say that anyone who uses the term “monkey god” is too stupid to be dealing the the public or the media.

  67. he’s an asshole what wore that tie with that shirt

  68. Well he had his Muslim buddies over for Ramadan, so of course he pandered.

    As I said before I am not for blocking this mosque in a manner that violates the first and fifth amendments, but the first amendment also allows all of us to speak out against it. They are up to no good. It is not racist or anti American to say so.

    Frum suggests these promoters are nothing more than upside down condo developers who hooked up with a new “Islamist” partner to try to drum up funding in the middle east for a piece of property they can’t unload. I am skeptical of Frum, but let’s say that is true. With the President now supporting it, that drumming up of funds becomes more likely not less.

    And you have Bloomberg and local officials falling over one another to show how progressive and openminded they are in welcoming our Islamic pals. Somehow I doubt we would have gotten here if Rudy or Ed Koch were still mayor.

  69. Yeah, it’s almost like he’s an attention-starved radio host attempting to present himself as a Tea party leader for personal media exposure.

  70. “Mark Williams is the one they kicked out…”

    So he would be their go-to guy from here on out. Interesting Predictable that he hasn’t the sense to keep his mouth shut.

  71. BBH,

    - AJB – When gas tops 8 dollars a gallon you MIGHT begin to understand. Doubtful.

    He doesn’t need gas, he rides the bus.

  72. He doesn’t need gas, he rides the short bus.

    FTFY

  73. Thanks Darleen. Perhaps he should call this The Other Andrew Sullivan.

  74. I don’t care to make more of the analogy than it will decently bear, but so far as the 1st Amdt goes this does somewhat resemble shouting fire in a packed theater.

    On the other hand, the call and response is more instructive.

    * We’ll build a Mosque [for reconciliation’s sake] !

    * Howls of pain from the Public, NO!

    * That’s exactly what we wanted to hear, thanks.

  75. As I said before I am not for blocking this mosque in a manner that violates the first and fifth amendments, but the first amendment also allows all of us to speak out against it. They are up to no good. It is not racist or anti American to say so.

    Krauthammer agrees:

    Location matters. Especially this location. Ground Zero is the site of the greatest mass murder in American history — perpetrated by Muslims of a particular Islamist orthodoxy in whose cause they died and in whose name they killed.

    Which makes you wonder about the goodwill behind Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf’s proposal. This is a man who has called U.S. policy “an accessory to the crime” of 9/11 and, when recently asked whether Hamas is a terrorist organization, replied, “I’m not a politician. . . . The issue of terrorism is a very complex question.”

    America is a free country where you can build whatever you want — but not anywhere. That’s why we have zoning laws. No liquor store near a school, no strip malls where they offend local sensibilities, and, if your house doesn’t meet community architectural codes, you cannot build at all.

    These restrictions are for reasons of aesthetics. Others are for more profound reasons of common decency and respect for the sacred. No commercial tower over Gettysburg, no convent at Auschwitz — and no mosque at Ground Zero.

    Build it anywhere but there.

    The governor of New York offered to help find land to build the mosque elsewhere. A mosque really seeking to build bridges, Rauf’s ostensible hope for the structure, would accept the offer.

    The location proposed “Cordoba House”, named after a past Islamic conquest, is pure political statement. Too bad so few in positions of authority can see that.

  76. bh:

    The TEA party is a movement, and an exercise in free association, not a political party.

    The people in the TEA party understand that, the liberal media does not.

    How can it be a Party without a real leader like Mao, or Pol Pot, or Stalin?

    So they continue to try to report the musings of a TEA party spokesman like he was Robert Gibbs behind a lecturn. The only result is a further shredding of the media’s already flaccid ‘trust’ ratings.

    My point is that anyone can claim that they speak for the TEA party, and CNN can call this person a spokesman, but who listens to anything CNN says anymore? People trapped in airports?

    Keep fucking that chicken, Wolf Blitzer!

  77. Had his wife still been in Spain, I am sure some in the Spanish press would have reminded her what the name Cordoba symbolized. Then again, maybe not, Spain declared “no mas” when al Qaeda attacked them. It is easier to stand in the corner until it is your turn.

  78. Is it OK to be VERY FUCKING ANGRY at a Socialist (Marxist) moron?
    Let’s cut to the chase. Persona(Al freedom comes ABSOLUTELY LAST on O-Ha-Ha’s list.

  84. good job, bh

  85. Thank God the President is standing up for the religion this country was founded on. The religion of Freedom! People need to let go of the past and forgive. If the rights of these people to build this church and worship were they choose is abridged, the goals of the terrorists who perpetrated 911 will have been accomplished in ways they could have only dreamed about in their wildest Nirvana scenario.

  86. hey Tick! How’s it going with the bloodsucking?

  87. good job, bh

    I’m going to take that in a very broad sense. From lawn mowing to my professional activities.

  88. Was #86 a parody of some sort?

  89. Calling a mosque a church and then saying the terrorists might achieve Nirvana could be flags, Abe.

    Hard to tell though.

  90. If I’m reading 86 correctly, it essentially says that if we don’t let Muslims build a triumphalist marker at the site of an Islamic religious attack on this country, the terrorists will have already won.

    Seems kinda like a rigged game when you put it that way, doesn’t it?

  91. My favorite is that the terrorists win when you kill them.

    See, that’s still losing in my book.

  92. Not at ground zero

  93. If this Tennessee hilljack tries to suggest this isn’t at Ground Zero once more I’m going to boil his cat and make an awesome paella with it.

  94. The least we can do is credit the Mosque builders with a thorough comprehension of where one must go to commit a profanity.

    And it’s not hard to turn the question around is it? Where would one go to profane Islam?

    Prof. LEWIS: No, but it’s a saying attributed to the prophet, that none–that there shall not be two religions in Arabia, and some take this as being limited to the hijjahs, some take it to apply to the whole of Arabia. But it–certainly in the hijjahs non-Muslims are not allowed to set foot.

  95. Have you heard this one? — Since the mosque would foster ongoing ill will against Muslims, Jews must secretly be responsible for the plan.

  96. Not at ground zero

    Except that the landing gear hit the roof of the building that used to be on the site.

    Other than that…

  97. I hope they do build it. It will be entertaining to watch as the place is bombarded by real New Yorkers with pig entrails, its windows broken, trash lit on fire, and its parishoners asses kicked in the parking lot.

    Mayor Bloomberg is not representative of the New York populace as a whole. He wants to turn the ‘city that never sleeps’ into the ‘city that’s in bed by 8:30′ but it ain’t gonna happen.

    This all assumes that the unions (Firefighters? Police? EMT?) are going to let the building get built in the first place.

  98. My favorite is that the terrorists win when you kill them.

    I’m down with that. Let’s have as many triumphant terrorists as possible. Let us fill Paradise to the brim, and overflowing.

    The Blue Mosque of Manhattan will be built. Get used to it, h8trs.

    I think what happened is you changed your argument and now you’re getting shrieky about people wanting to actively deny kids a mom and dad, which I don’t think anyone has said that…

    all I said was that there may indeed be instances where gay couples might be more better adoptive parents… but now you seem to be saying that yes you agree with me about that.

    I think that’s great.

    I don’t think these comments are deserving of deletion really and I would like Darleen to explain what it it is I’ve said in these comments that she feels is untrue.
