Or is he just Anti-Christian/Jewish/Budhist/etc/American?
My turn… This past Friday evening I spent until wee hours in the morning arguing with a slew of progressives (I will no longer use caps when writing the word progressive/s. Using caps would cause some people to assume that I have some respect for them) about Obama’s latest foray into bat-sh*t-crazy-land, the Ground Zero Mosque in New York City. Before I continue, let me make a few points of order so our progressive friends understand what I’m refering to.
The proposed Mosque is NOT on ground zero, but damn close. The proposed Mosque will be inside and/or part of a large Muslim Community center. The permits applied for with the City of NYC calls for a Mosque that can hold 3,000 people safely during daily prayers. Three thousand people bending over in prayers on the floor take up an awful lot of space, so this is NOT considered a small prayer room as progressives/liberals would have you believe. The Mosque/Community Center is two short blocks away from ground ZERO. For those of you that have never been to NYC let me explain what I mean by “small blocks”. Lower Manhattan, especially in and around the proposed Freedom Towers have smaller city blocks than what you will find further up the Island of Manhattan. They are more like 0.5 city blocks, with some even smaller. Simply do an overhead Google map search of NYC. As you zoom-in on NYC you will see what I’m talking about. Most of the city blocks north of Ground Zero are much larger than the blocks around Ground Zero. When people go on about “it’s two city blocks away” they want you to assume that they are the size of most large city blocks as you would find in any large American City, not. The front door of the proposed Mosque/Community center dumps you out onto the streets of lower Manhattan a scant 1 minute walk to Ground Zero. Not only that, when you exit the front door of the Mosque/Community Center, the Freedom Towers will be the largest/tallest buildings in the area, and will tower over you. You will feel as if you can reach out and touch this sacred ground where thousands of our fellow Americans died on 9/11. Another item… there may be a small number of people in the USA that don’t know what our “Rights” and Freedoms” are (they would be Illegals and progressives), but the overwhelming majority of our population of 350 Million citizens know their RIGHTS! If any progressive/liberal (Obama comes to mind) tries to argue that we, Conservative Americans, don’t know our rights, feel free to tell them to kiss your a**! Update: Eric Bolling of Fox Business Channel went down to Ground Zero yesterday (8/17/10) and walked from Ground Zero to the proposed site of the mosque with cameras rolling. His estimated distance… 60 linear ft!
Now that I have the ‘particulars’ out of the way, I want to get down to the meat of this issue. What in the hell is up with President Obama? That will be the last time I use caps when calling Obama ‘president’, he doesn’t deserve the respect.
There seemed to be a bit of a climax today with people from all over the political spectrum questioning the wisdom of Obama wading into something that for the most part, was a NYC issue. People that supported him, and voted for him like rabid Dogs, are now questioning why he also did things like recently give the head of NASA orders to make his top priority to engage Muslims around the world. Sure, you and I questioned that move too, but we were simply dismissed as bigots by the Left, remember. At the time nobody could answer our obvious question of “what the hell does engaging Muslims have to do with NASA’s missions???”, but now the progressives/liberals are asking the same thing. The list goes on and on (I will add to the list when I’m not so upset and can think straight) where Obama has come to the defense of Muslims, and/or the Muslim religion, while at the same time going around the world appologizing for America, as if we are “the cause of all problems of the world” and Islam was the answer.
What I really want to know is, are all those crazy conspiracy nuts right about Obama being some sort of Islamic sleeper agent? But I also want to know… until we get some answers from Obama, should he step away from representing the United States of America as our President? I have about another 200 questions, but let’s start with this one.
Please add to the base of knowledge with the issue of Obama and his reverence of Islam, so share what you have found, in the comments section.
I gotta stop here right now before I burst a main artery!
Here’s a little extra…
The New York Times Editorial board bow mightily at the alter of “Obama the Magnificent”. I swear this guy could kill 1,000 people, rape 500 School children, beat and torture Hispanic women, set fire to live kittens, and the NYT’s would still come to his defense. http://www.nytimes.com/2010/08/17/opinion/17tue2.html?partner=rss&emc=rss
