Earlier this month a New York City agency cleared the way for the
construction of Cordoba House, a 13-story building that would include
meeting rooms, a prayer space, an auditorium and a pool.
Some of the families of those killed in the attacks have mounted an
emotional campaign to block it, calling the center provocative and a
betrayal of the memory of the victims.
“It does put salt on the wound,” King said. He urged Muslim leaders behind the project to reconsider the location.
A CNN/Opinion Research Corporation Poll showed a majority of Americans
across the political spectrum opposed the project being built near the
site of the attacks.
The survey, released on Wednesday, showed nearly 70 percent of
Americans opposed it, including 54 percent of Democrats, 82 percent of
Republicans and 70 percent of independents.
So what if 70 percent of Americans think the mosque shouldn’t be built there? So what if a majority of Americans think religious freedom should take a backseat to the feelings of people who, by and large, not only weren’t in New York on 9/11 but have never been to New York and likely won’t go?
And so what if a broad political spectrum of people are against it? That proves nothing except that there are assholes and insects in every political party, and most of them are racist fucks who’d rather not have
to deal with sticky, uncomfortable stuff like “religious freedom even
for people I think suck” and “this is America, you can have your stuff
anywhere you want even if it makes me itch.” It’s hardly news that
Democrats, Independents and Republicans can be total dicksucks, even if
that last has had kind of a lock on the market for the past decade or
So what if it hurts people’s feelings? People’s feelings are not law. People may be squicksome over this now, but on election day, are they going to vote based on that their kids don’t have enough to eat, or are they going to vote based on the president said some stuff in a video address that nobody paid any attention to anyway, and some Republicans were jerks about it on Sunday shows nobody watches?
I mean, if we’re gonna take the argument to that level you’d bestbring it, King, because people’s feelings are hurt over a lot of stuff right now. For example, many of us do not have jobs. Others have jobs but they suck. Others still are dying of preventable, curable diseases because doctors are expensive and/or inconvenient to them. And that’s just the real stuff. I’m pretty sure I could find a plurality of Americans to oppose your hair, you chewy little fuck. Will you then shave it off? Do I have the right to tie you down and do it to you?
Prominent Republicans have opposed the proposed site of the center,
saying it was insensitive and reopened the wounds of the attacks. On
Sunday, several criticized Obama for what they said was his support of
the center’s construction and subsequent waffling on the issue.
“This is not about freedom of religion because we all respect the right
of anyone to worship according to the dictates of their conscience …
but I do think it’s unwise to build a mosque at the site where 3,000
Americans lost their lives as the result of a terrorist attack,” Texas
Republican John Cornyn said on the “Fox News Sunday” program.
“To me it demonstrates that Washington, the White House, the
administration, the President himself seems to be disconnected from the
mainstream of America,” Cornyn said.
If the mainstream of America is a bunch of dicks who have no idea what America is actually about, then I say hallelujah, allahu ackbar, and GO TEAM, okay? Let’s be clear on this: the president’s duty is to the Constitution and the law of the land, not to how many dickheads King and Cornyn can make dance on the head of a pin. And if he wants to act like that for once, andtell these bigoted tools to go fuck themselves:
Well, my intention was simply to let people know what I thought. Which
was that In this country we treat everybody equally and in accordance
with the law, regardless of race, regardless of religion.
Then I sayHappy Obama Photo, bitches:
And by the by, this:
Republicans said the November elections will be about jobs, and that
the president should be addressing high unemployment in the United
States instead of speaking about religious freedom.
Is some quality bullshit. Howl and scream and release your flying monkeys to hassle all of America which IS busy with high unemployment and stuff in the world being generally broken, and then when the President has to step in and calm your asses down, claim he’s diverting YOUR attention from the real problems. Sure. That’s just great.
