Head teabagger and not-at-all racist Mark Williams has already expressed his dismay at the fact that those dirty towelheads are building a temple to worship their evil monkey-god (“monkey-god” is a quote, btw, and “towelhead” is informed supposition) and now the rest of the fear-mongering right-wing pieces of shit have spoken up.
Thankfully, Talking Points Memo has compiled the choicest outbursts in one helpful blog post. We’d suggest that these community center haters are fauxtraged, but we’re sure their racist outrage is real. Here we go!
Back in December, when word about the proposal first surfaced, WorldNetDaily posted comments from outraged right-wingers, including: “If this is true, our beloved country is already gone. We no longer have the America I know and love.”
Yes! An America where you can openly tell brown people that you’re better than they are no longer exists. Sorry!
The Washington Times editorialized today that the proposal is “at best inappropriate, and at worst an attempt to hijack the memory of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.” The piece was approvingly tweeted this morning by Keep America Safe, Liz Cheney’s group.
False. Just false. No surprise that Liz Cheney is on this bandwagon.
Investor’s Business Daily judged that the plan is “a monumental sign of weakness. Right now, our enemy is laughing at us.”
One would think that letting Muslims build a mosque near a site destroyed by Muslims would be a sign of strength. You know, a we-know-you-technically-practice-the-same-religion-but-aren’t-extremists-so-here’s-your-board-approval kind of thing. But no. Showing any sort of tolerance is apparently weak. Sigh.
Robert Spencer, who runs “Jihad Watch,” wrote on Human Events: “The Twin Towers, after all, were the symbol of America’s economic power. Placing a mosque by the site of their destruction (at the hands of Islamic jihadists) symbolizes the taming of that power.”
What? How does one follow the other? That doesn’t even make sense.
Andrew McCarthy of the Weekly Standard noted on Fox, in opposition to the plan, that while there are 2,300 mosques in the United States, there are no churches or synagogues in Mecca or Medina.
Question: Are there American Christians clamoring to travel to Mecca so they can worship Jesus? Bleh.
Nothing like promoting hate! Fat America: Land of the freeeeee! Yay!
