Godwin's Law Bites Back

"Nazis don't have the right to put up a sign next to the Holocaust museum in Washington."

"There should be no mosque near Ground Zero in New York so long as there are no churches or synagogues in Saudi Arabia."

-Newt Gingrich


"There will be a mosque in Rome only when a Roman Catholic church is permitted in Mecca."

-Benito Mussolini



According to his Newtness, it's high time America derived its values regarding religious freedom and tolerance not from those appeasers who wrote that silly Constitution but from the mighty House of Saud and European fascists. Okay?

"What God Do You Pray To?"

On that day, 3,000 people were killed because some murderous fanatics didn't want us to enjoy the freedoms to profess our own faiths, to speak our own minds, to follow our own dreams, and to live our own lives. Of all our precious freedoms, the most important may be the freedom to worship as we wish. And it is a freedom that even here -- in a city that is rooted in Dutch tolerance -- was hard-won over many years...

Whatever you may think of the proposed mosque and community center, lost in the heat of the debate has been a basic question: Should government attempt to deny private citizens the right to build a house of worship on private property based on their particular religion? That may happen in other countries, but we should never allow it to happen here.

This nation was founded on the principle that the government must never choose between religions or favor one over another. The World Trade Center site will forever hold a special place in our city, in our hearts. But we would be untrue to the best part of ourselves and who we are as New Yorkers and Americans if we said no to a mosque in lower Manhattan.

Let us not forget that Muslims were among those murdered on 9/11, and that our Muslim neighbors grieved with us as New Yorkers and as Americans. We would betray our values and play into our enemies' hands if we were to treat Muslims differently than anyone else. In fact, to cave to popular sentiment would be to hand a victory to the terrorists, and we should not stand for that...

On Sept. 11, 2001, thousands of first responders heroically rushed to the scene and saved tens of thousands of lives. More than 400 of those first responders did not make it out alive. In rushing into those burning buildings, not one of them asked, 'What God do you pray to?...

We do not honor their lives by denying the very constitutional rights they died protecting. We honor their lives by defending those rights and the freedoms that the terrorists attacked.
-Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg

WWW.SHARRONANGLE.COM

And here it is folks, what the "conservative media" hath spawned:



Known Fox critic Carl "Morning Eyes" Cameron was naturally bemused with this elf-woman's assertion that his network ought to do a better job of promoting her own political aspirations, especially when the media has been soooo easy on Obama. Sure, conservatives are slapping their foreheads in disbelief at this crazy lady's rare moment of honesty, embarrassed that one of their own would so blatantly demand the same white gloves special treatment that they've accused liberals of securing through their vast, impenetrable cabal of media insiders, or whatever Glenn Beck is crying about today. But I for one will not allow Sharron Angle to be dismissed by anyone in her party as a mere amateur, despite all evidence that she clearly is an inept, in over her head naif. You bought it, you now own it.

You see, when Angle enjoyed an incredibly sizable lead over Politburo Vice-Premier Harry Reid a few months back, she was hailed as a citizen hero, leading the people's brigade against a despised symbol of corruption and unfreedom. Like with other mama grizzlies before her, Angle's "quirks," "isms," and "polishlessness" were unmistakable signs of realness and folksiness, something apparently very much lacking in the United States Senate despite Chuck Grassley. Now that it's clear this woman is crazier than ape excrement, the GOP and the NRSC are stuck with "a real American mom" (read: moron) who ever since Clinton got a hummer from that chubby girl has held Hannity viewing parties every week in her living room with the ladies from the God's Gals bridge club before deciding she'd make a fine State Assemblywoman and vote no on everything. Now she's running for the Senate to get the U.S. out of the UN and the gays out of each other and the party is pulling the collars off their necks with apprehension and the media is NOT being helpful, sheesh! Poor Sharron must have thought all this time that if she could only avoid the sabotaging liberal media, make it onto the No Spin Zone and nail all the softies, she'd finally be able to single-handedly eliminate Social Security, quit "spoiling" our citizens with Obama's jobless pimp money, and finally end our long national nightmare, or the Department of Education. What good is a right-wing news outlet if it won't do it's JOB?? Why won't Carl Cameron just ask Sharron Angle what her website is????
