The demise of Western man will then be complete, when he chooses to accept the slap of the bully without a whimper. The bully will then know that he has won against a frightened, cowering opponent.
This is what the building of a victory mosque overlooking the rubble of Ground Zero will represent to Islam. What a coincidence that it's scheduled opening is 9/11/11, the tenth anniversary of that heinous attack on America.
The main function of the Constitution is to protect American citizens from the possibility of the Federal government becoming tyrannical.
Over the years, the Extreme Left has whittled away at Constitutional rights, they have scorned the Constitution and the Founders, they have called it a "living breathing" document to justify their Extreme Left Jurists mandating changes that could never be accomplished through Constitutional Amendment proceedings. Try telling your banker that your mortgage contract is a "living breathing" document.
Yet these same Extreme Leftists, and their global political bedfellows, the muslim jihadists, will beat anyone over the head with our own Constitution to achieve their goals. The Constitution used as a hammer to destroy the very freedoms that it was intended to protect.
The Constitution is not a suicide pact. According to the arguments posted by Americas Extreme Leftist proponents of the Ground Zero mosque, the U.S. would have been powerless to stop the building of a "Nazi Gentlemens Political Club" next to the Capital Building during WW2. After all, the Constitution guarantees the right to assemble.
The Extreme Left cares nothing for the Constitution, but they know that you do. Therefore, their argument smarmily goes, you are a hypocrite if you don't agree to give Constitutional rights to every cause, even if it is self-destructive. This argument has been used, quite effectively, to advance their socialist agenda over the years. They take your Patriotic love and respect for the Constitution and use that to brow beat you into accepting things that the Constitution does not require you to accept. It's worked for years.
The Extreme Left, also, in this case, piously exclaim that they are for freedom of religion. No one is denying muslims freedom of religion. We are arguing the placement of a building. Does it strike you as strange that the people who have used separation of church and state for the last 50 years to limit your freedom of religion, conveniently use that argument when it advances a muslim cause? The Extreme Left have made it eminently clear that they despise YOUR religion, spitting, and worse, literally, on it's most sacred precepts, via TV, and in all other popular culture media. This done with gleeful, even impish, enjoyment of the hurt and harm that it causes you, your family, and your beliefs. In fact many of them openly call your religion evil, be it Christian or Jewish, they mock the existence of God, and disparage anyone who believes in Him as ignorant and superstitious, even portraying you as dangerous terrorists who believe in a fictional "ghost in the sky". Some on the Extreme Left have openly declared Americas Christians as being more dangerous to our country than muslim extremist jihadists. For decades they have publicly portrayed you as people of limited intelligence, unlike they, the enlightened ones. Indeed, it can safely be stated that they have waged ideological war on you and your beliefs during those decades.
Isn't it also strange that the ones who have worked to silence your church bells as offensive, for instance, have no such problem with the muslim call to prayers that will be broadcast by loudspeakers five times a day over the muslim killing grounds of The Twin Towers? What clearer declaration of victory and supposed superiority could there be?
There is irrefutable, factual evidence that Imam Rauf, the originator of the Ground Zero mosque project, is solidly aligned with worldwide jihadist interests and causes. That he has substantial ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, whose main tenet is to destroy the West from within. In other words, he is far from a "moderate" muslim in search of universal brotherhood. To the contrary, he is openly and blatantly attempting to erect an insult that the entire muslim world will understand and applaud. He will be their hero.
And your State Dept is paying for Imam Raufs current trip to muslem countries. They tell us it is for outreach purposes to the muslim world, and he is prohibited by the rules of the program from soliciting funds for the mosque. Oh, OK. This being the guy who has refused to disclose where funds for the mosque, to date, have, or will come from. Yeah, I'm OK with this. I like salt rubbed in my wounds by my own Govt, which is currently run by an Extreme Left Administration. They think we're the bad guys here. Anything feel upside down and backwards about that to you? Are you offended that they think you stupid and unworldly enough to swallow this?
Though I admire, on the one hand, the intrinsic good motives and sense of fairness that some American proponents for the mosque operate under. I can't help but believe they have not researched the Imam in this instance to determine his motives. Either that, or they know, but are too cowardly to stand up because of the well known barbaric tactics of the jihadists. Which only encourages the continued use of those tactics, as obviously, they work to cower, and eventually subjugate their enemies.
There is speculation amongst some that the Planning Board members, whose names and home addresses are a matter of public record, voted unanimously for the mosque, fearing physical retribution for a negative vote from muslim extremists. Seems they fear jihadists more than they do Christians, putting the lie to whom is actually most dangerous to Americans. The thought of your own beheading over a wrong vote must throw considerable weight into the decision making factor. I'm just sayin'.
Once again, as always, the Extreme Left sides against America and the majority of her citizens. Once again, ignoring all facts as irrelevant, they call anyone who cites such facts despicable names, and disparage their intelligence. As if only cowards and turncoats have the mental capacity to understand all of the nuances of this issue.
When, in reality, such smear tactics against their fellow citizens simply sublimate the true cause of their stand, which is either mortal fear, or a desire to aid our enemies in the fundamental transformation of our country. I believe it to be the latter. The Extreme Left, from the President, on down to his lapdog media, and the majority of appeasing Extreme Leftists in America, stand against you, and aid and abet those who consider you their enemy.The Extreme Left undermine, and strenuously fight, any attempt to protect us and our way of life, right down to our honor, our traditions and our history.
Those are my personal thoughts on the Ground Zero mosque, I am against it.
