Say What? August 15, 2010 [Reader Post]



President Obama: “Islam has always been a part of America.”

NBC’s chief White House correspondent Chuck Todd said that if the GOP has a big win it will still be seen as a “A bad election night for all of Washington.”

Pelosi’s $26 billion bill, which funds teacher’s unions by taking money from the Food Stamps program, caused Connecticut Rep. Rosa DeLauro, chairwoman of the subcommittee that funds Agriculture Committee programs, to say, “This is a bitter pill to swallow.  As you can imagine, for me personally, it’s like `Sophie’s Choice.'”  In the movie, Nazi’s made Sophie choose which of her children would die.

Sheryl Crow, still a babe at age 48, calls for “Eco-friendly cleaning and bathroom products” and “post-consumer recycled toilet paper and paper towel” to be used at her concerts.

Vice President Al Gore bitterly denounced the Senate and federal government, saying several times, “The U.S. Senate has failed us” and “The federal government has failed us.”  This is because he does not see climate change legislation as being passed this year.


Keith Halloran,
a Democrat candidate for the New Hampshire House, posted in a Facebook thread about the plane crash that killed former Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens, “Just wish Sarah and Levy [sic] were on board.”

New Hampshire State Representative Timothy Horrigan replied Wednesday, “Well a dead Palin wd [sic] be even more dangerous than a live one … she is all about her myth & if she was dead she cldn’ t [sic] commit any more gaffes.”

Greg Gutfeld, in response: “Where did all the grown men go?  Seriously, why are adult males writing like catty teens on facebook?  Have we turned into a nation of 12-year-old girls pining for the Jonas Brothers and planning sleep overs?”


President Obama: “As a citizen, and as President, I believe that Muslims have the same right to practice their religion as everyone else in this country. And 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.”

Greg Gutfeld (of Fox’s Redeye) has proposed a gay bar to be build across the street from the Ground Zero Mosque, to cater both to western and eastern gay men.  Park51 twittered, “You’re free to open whatever you like.  If you won’t consider the sensibilities of Muslims, you’re not going to build dialog.”


Harry Reid, “I don’t know how anyone of Hispanic heritage can be a Republican, okay?  Do I need to say more?”

Marco Rubio has responded to this outrageous claim on several occasions; here is one of those statements: “But let me explain why Americans of Hispanic descent would want to be Republicans, and it’s a pretty simple concept. The number one issue in the Hispanic community in America is economic empowerment, the desire to leave their children better off than themselves. It’s the reason why my parents worked two jobs and sacrificed throughout their lives so I would have the opportunity to do things they could not.  It is possible because of God, and it is possible because of their sacrifices, and it was possible because of the American free-enterprise system. And the agenda that Harry Reid supports is trying to destroy and dismantle the American free-enterprise system. And so that’s why Hispanics should be Republicans, and I believe a growing number of Hispanics will become Republicans because the agenda Reid supports kills Hispanic dreams for their children.”


Press Secretary Robert Gibbs told the Hill that the “professional left” will only be satisfied “when we have Canadian healthcare and we’ve eliminated the Pentagon. That’s not reality.”

Some Democrats have been furious with Robert Gibbs and his comments about the Professional Left, and one person commented: “[It’s] Time for Gibbs to grab a couple of beers, follow Romer, and slide down the exit chute along with the rest of this collection of arrogant bozos .” posted by Chris in FL.  I had heard that Pat Buchanan said, this, but I could not confirm that.  Several people posted quotes similar to this at various websites.


Time Magazine’s editor Joe Klein, after looking at President Obama’s speech touting the end of combat operations in Iraq, in a blog, wrote it “will not be remembered as vividly as George Bush’s juvenile march across the deck of an aircraft carrier, costumed as a combat aviator in a golden sunset, to announce-six years and tens of thousands of lives prematurely-the `end of combat operations.'”

Joe Klein on Face the Nation, on the May 4, 2003, said of this same event: “Well, that was probably the coolest presidential image since Bill Pullman played the jet fighter pilot in the movie Independence Day.”


Sarah Palin to President Obama: “Mr. President, should they or should they not build a mosque steps away from where radical Islamists killed 3000 people? Please tell us your position. We all know that they have the right to do it, but should they? And, no, this is not above your pay grade. If those who wish to build this Ground Zero mosque are sincerely interested in encouraging positive “cross-cultural engagement” and dialogue to show a moderate and tolerant face of Islam, then why haven’t they recognized that the decision to build a mosque at this particular location is doing just the opposite?”

John Boehner, the Ohio Republican who is the House minority leader, said: “The decision to build this mosque so close to the site of ground zero is deeply troubling, as is the president’s decision to endorse it.”

Representative Peter King, a New York Republican, said “President Obama is wrong.  It is insensitive and uncaring for the Muslim community to build a mosque in the shadow of ground zero.”


Andrew Klavan: “Rape is one of the lowest of crimes because it deprives others of their personal choices in order to satisfy your own craving for power—it’s like being a Democrat.

From an unidentified Black leader in the TEA party express about the accusation that a Black Congressman was spit on: “In the words of Johnny Cochrane, ‘if there is no spit, then you must acquit.’ ”

Barry, a Verizon employee, said, “I feel like there is a ruling class of people who think that they know better than me on everything and they don’t really give a damn about what I think.”  Quote conveyed by Rick Santorum.

Glenn Beck: “Why is the [Great] depression called a depression in every other country, but called a Great Depression in the United States?”

Sign at a TEA party rally: “Socialism: Tax dollars at work for those who don’t.”

What Obama had to say about placing a Mosque at ground zero was perhaps expected; but a failure on his part to yield to the will of the majority of people in America will cost Obama everything he has and force him out. No mosque will be built on or anywhere near ground zero.

Why were the Obama comments expected?

For a man who writes, “The Muslim Call to Prayer is one of the Prettiest Sounds on Earth”, said Barack Obama to the New York Times. What would you expect?

For a man who spent a great deal of time as a youth in Indonesia surrounded by Muslims; his step-father Sotero was Muslin, his uncles and aunts were Muslim, his grandfather was Muslim and his relatives and friends were Muslim. Obama read and recited the Islamic book called the Koran daily. What would you expect?

For a man that says America is no longer a Christian nation, despite the statistical fact that almost 80% of American’s relate to Christianity in some way. What would you expect? In truth, Muslims are not more than .06 to less than 1.0% of the population in America (est. 2009). Very small percentage of Muslims in America, very small.

On more than one occasion, Obama has had a Freudian slip and declared that he is, or his religion is, Islamic. What would you expect?

Both Obama and Bloomberg have the right idea. This is a religious question. However, remember that there is NO imperative that a mosque be built in the area called ground zero. And, as a matter of tolerance, we can say that those Muslims that want to build a mosque in New York can build it elsewhere. That is tolerance enough and certainly more than the Muslims have for our feelings about ground zero.

And, as for Obama’s declaration that we must allow for religious freedom, I agree. An overwhelming majority of America’s Christians believe that Islam is primitive, of the devil, intolerant, unforgiving and backward. The Koran is proof that Muslims are encouraged to kill infidels rather than tolerate then; and force their religion upon others. Islam is an extremely degenerate set of outdated tenets.

So we have to be tolerant of Muslims when their Islamic ideals call for intolerance; I say NO.

Nevertheless, Christian opinion is strong enough to carry the day and prohibit, by whatever means, the building of a mosque anywhere near ground zero.

And, as long as Obama has declared that we shall have religious freedom, Christians and other dignified non-Muslim individuals will fight openly and freely against everything that Islam and Muslims stands for.

As a matter of fact, we shall pray fervently that the Muslims who don’t give a damn about the sanctity of ground zero can go to hell. Religiously, we shall oppose this plan of theirs with everything we have. And, to those who feel that we should tolerate Muslim’s intolerance regarding respecting our views on ground zero — Obama and Bloomberg and liberal extreme democrats — we American’s will push them out on election day or sooner by any means we can.

American’s have begun their fight to put Islam down as unAmerican; it is part of our religious right and the free exercise our beliefs. Amen.


“If you won’t consider the sensibilities of Muslims, you’re not going to build dialog.”

And that, Mata, is the very argument I have been making. Sensitivity is a two way street.

But for these Muslims, sensitivity is give and take. We give and they take. And that puts to the lie the notion that this mosque is being built for understanding or bridge building. I do think it is intended to be a monument to a conquest.

#3: I agree. The Park 51 quote tells me that they are not interested in real, two-way dialog or tolerance. They expect us to appease them and cater to their “sensibilities” while stomping all over ours. Even a Neanderthal should understand that a place where 3,000 people died as the result of a terrorist act is a place for a memorial and nothing more.

You can’t make this stuff up.
The blindness is staggering.
The 19 perpetrators of the 911 terrorist atrocity were, as a matter of demonstrable fact, engaged in the free exercise of religion. Their religion was Islam. Their God was Allah. And their understanding of their responsibility to Allah was to kill infidels.
They were engaged in Jihad, and all of the persons in the World Trade Center were the oppressors of their Islamic brethren throughout the world.
Is the free and unfettered exercise of Jihad (expressed as terrorism) now a protected part of religious freedom? The writings of Wahab, Qutb, and Bin Laden are quite explicit. These folks fully intend to use our open society to inflict their religion upon us.
What part of “Islam means submission” do you not understand?

Just asking.

German mosque used by Sept. 11 attackers shut down

(AP) – Aug 8, 2010

BERLIN — German authorities say they have closed a Hamburg mosque used by the Sept. 11 attackers as a meeting place before they moved to the United States.

A statement by Hamburg officials says the Taiba mosque was shut down and its cultural association was banned on Monday.

The prayer house, formerly known as al-Quds mosque, used to be a meeting and recruiting point for some of the Sept. 11 attackers.

Weekly news magazine Focus cites a report by a local intelligence agency branch in saying the mosque has again become the city’s “main center of attraction for the jihad scene.” It says some members who belonged to the Taiba group and prayed at the mosque have moved on to a radical training camp in Uzbekistan.

Officials could not immediately be reached for comment.

GARY KUKIS: thank’s for an eye opening POST, many of the opposit party should read it also
THEY might decide to seriously switch and start figuering that AMERICANS best be served by conservatives and republicans in the next election. bye

“If men are so wicked with religion, what would they be if without it?” –Benjamin Franklin

IT IS not for AMERICA to consider the sensibility of FOREIGN IMMIGRANTS,
THOSE who come to embrace the FREEDOM earned with the blood of AMERICANS patriots,
MUST considered the sensibility of AMERICANS, UNTIL they earn their place as realy being TRUE AMERICANS… WITH NO other ADJECTIVES ADDED

And here I thought you came to America because you wanted to be an American … subscribe to American values and customs.

Oh please….as if democrats or anyone ELSE in the house actually believes money will be taken from the food stamps program!! Hell, that’s one of the left’s biggest vote-buying schemes.

One of the mistakes being made in the West is thinking that the “Islamic Faith” is a religion, in the “Judaism” or “Christianity” or “Hinduism” definition of the word.


So true, my friend. Islam is more a political idealogy disguised as religion. It has no place in America. Sharia law is the antithesis of our constitution. A pox on all who adhear to Islam.

@Old Trooper 2: Love the Franklin quote! I think the only difference would be that the wicked would have to find another justification/rationalization for the evil they do.

I find it odd that one of their talking points lately is the fact that there are other mosques in NYC area…one just 2 blocks further than the proposed one they are building now. CNN was banging on about it. And the president yammering on about freedom of religion and how we don’t want to stop people from prayer or practicing their religion? What the hell are they talking about? Who is making “that” argument — to keep muslims from practicing religion in NYC??

Here’s the deal..nobody is trying to stop the Islamic faith, or keep muslims from prayer. We are talking about “A” mosque…one in particular..and “it’s” proximity to the location of ground zero. Secondly, the argument that there are more mosques in the area, including one just a few blocks further from the proposed new one, doesn’t necessarily bode well for the arguments that this mosque is even necessary in the first place…..or…that people are somehow trying to stop all mosques or worship in the area. That’s never been the argument/issue. They are making up strawmen to unstuff them on TV. Lets stick to the issue. This about “a” certain proposed mosque and “ITS” location to ground zero. Why not build on or enhance the one that’s been “nearby” for years that nobody has a problem with?

If they build this mosque anyway…I hope someone does open a 24 hour muslim gaybar/pork store right next door to them…..because after all…they would have the “right” to do it.

Mr. Kukis, the gentleman with the spit quote is Kevin Jackson from “The Black Sphere”. He said that at a black conservative leaders’ press conference. It’s on Youtube here “”.

Good stuff.
