In rebuttal to Ahmadinejad’s recent comments at the United Nations General Assembly, President Obama made some eerily similar comments as those who were protesting an Islamic Cultural Center near Ground Zero. Obama had this to say:
And particularly for him to make the statement here in Manhattan, just a little north of ground zero, where families lost their loved ones, people of all faiths, all ethnicities who see this as the seminal tragedy of this generation, for him to make a statement like that was inexcusable.”
Only weeks ago the media distractions towards the mosque were at an all time high. Many of those against the building of the mosque had this to say:
Sarah Palin: “Build a mosque….but somewhere else that’s less offensive and less provoking.””
Donald Trump: “I think it is very insensitive to build it there. I think it is not appropriate. I think it’s insensitive and it shouldn’t be built there.”
Newt Gingrich: “I’m quite happy if they’d come in and said, ‘We want to build a community center near Central Park, we’d like to build a community center near Columbia University.’ But they didn’t. They said right at the edge (of Ground Zero)…”
Glenn Beck: “I’m opposed to it. I think it’s crazy.”
Dem. Governor of Illinois Pat Quinn: “I do believe that there are special places on Earth that should have a zone of solemnity around them. I would strongly urge those who are thinking of putting a mosque within that zone to rethink their position.“
The web is filled with references to the mosque being too close to Ground Zero, made by people like I have pointed out above.
Obama has aligned his positions with Beck, Palin, Gingrich and many others in limiting and restricting the most basic freedoms around the site of the World Trade Center.
It is time to see through the smoke and mirrors; 9/11 is being used by both parties as an excuse to limit civil liberties and curtail freedoms worldwide while continuing the occupations of aggression in the Middle East.
