Obama and the administration have now said quite a bit about the Ground Zero Mosque. What’s important to notice is what the haven’t said. Obama has not come out condemning the radical connections of the mosque or the fact that they are purposely desecrating the sacred land of ground zero, the land that brought America together. Obama’s placed himself in a dangerous political position where the Americans will unite again against terrorists. It’s no surprise that Obama’s found himself on the wrong site as he’s an elitist that doesn’t know the American people.
“I was not commenting and I will not comment on the wisdom of making the decision to put a mosque there, I was commenting very specifically on the right people have that dates back to our founding. That’s what our country is about.”
So he chose to comment, but he didn’t sound very neutral on the subject. It’s tough to find his original comments but here they are:
“Ground zero is, indeed, hallowed ground. But let me be clear: As a citizen and as president, I believe that Muslims have the same right to practice their religion as anyone else in this country. That includes the right to build a place of worship and a community center on private property in lower Manhattan, in accordance with local laws and ordinances.”
I understand that we can practice our religion, but we can also tell people where they can go when they aren’t our friends. And anyone who does any research on this specific mosque will find that they are not our friends, in fact the leader of Hezbollah agreed with Obama saying the mosque MUST be built.
Just to be clear, the president is not backing off in any way from the comments he made last night. It is not his role as president to pass judgment on every local project. But it is his responsibility to stand up for the constitutional principle of religious freedom and equal treatment for all Americans. What he said last night, and reaffirmed today, is that If a church, a synagogue or a Hindu temple can be built on a site, you simply cannot deny that right to those who want to build a mosque.
So Obama won’t get into NY’s business but when Arizona has some immigration issues he’s fine with taking the side of illegal aliens? It makes it awfully hard to make the case that Obama is pro American, at leas not the America most of us know.
