This out of touch:
“There is no question there is a concerted effort to make this a political issue by some. And I join those who have called for looking into how is this opposition to the mosque being funded,” she said.
Of course, that’s Nancy Pelosi speaking about investigating those who oppose the building of the mosque at Ground Zero in Manhattan.
Couple that with this:
New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg says it would be un-American to investigate a mosque that is planned for construction near where the World Trade Center once stood.
Bloomberg was asked Monday about GOP gubernatorial candidate Rick Lazio’s demands last week that Democratic rival Andrew Cuomo investigate the $100 million mosque being developed near the Sept. 11 attack site. Bloomberg said investigating or vetting religious organizations goes against what the nation stands for.
Some survivors and family members of Sept. 11 victims say building a mosque disrespects the memory of those who died at the hands of Islamic terrorists. Still, Bloomberg repeatedly supported its construction and believes that it poses no security concerns.
Lazio refused to say whether he opposes the general idea of a mosque near the site. He opposes the proposed mosque because he is concerned that not enough is known about its funding sources and has questions about its director, Imam Faisel Abdul Rauf.
Let’s recap for those who are a tad obtuse.
Leftist leaders believe it would be appropriate to investigate who is funding those who oppose the building of the mosque when there’s no apparent reason for that investigation… and un-American to investigate who is funding those who are for it when there are obvious reasons for doing so.
I can see November from my backyard.
