Better put your mats down.
Not your Muslim prayer mat, but your roll-on-the ground-laughing-at-liberals mat.
Mocking liberals for their massive hypocrisy can be a dangerous sport; you don’t want to hurt yourself laughing at them by falling on the hard ground. Take precautions.
We’ve been told by the American left – including Obama – over and over and over again that the Ground Zero mosque issue was a “religious rights” issue. You may or may not like what the Cordoba Initiative is doing building a mosque as close as possible to Ground Zero, but they have the right to do it, and if you don’t celebrate their “religious freedom,” you’re a bigot.
Conservatives have been saying over and over again that it isn’t and never was about “religious rights” or “religious freedom.” We’ve said that we recognize that they’ve got the right to build; but that just because you’ve got the right to do something doesn’t mean you should do it.
This isn’t about freedom of religion, and it isn’t about the Constitution. It’s about right and wrong.
Let me give you an example of what I’m saying. In this country, I have every right to go into a black establishment and repeatedly shout the N-word at the top of my lungs. I have the right to go into a black church wearing a white robe and a white pointy hat. But I shouldn’t do it. And all rights aside, I’m profoundly wrong if I do do it.
On the Democrats’ morally idiotic defense of the mosque, the fact that the Muslims have a right to build it means therefore ergo sum that they should build it, and that anyone who disagrees is “intolerant” or is violating the Constitutional rights of the Muslims.
But that is every bit as stupid as my walking down the street pointing out every single black person and shouting the N-word, and then telling anyone who criticizes me for doing it that they are enemies of the Constitution.
And, of course, the only reason I’m wearing that white robe and that pointy hat is for “community outreach.” You see, I want to create a “racial dialogue.”
So how DARE you criticize me. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ll put my pointy hood back on and be on my way. I have some black people to go shout at.
But the left were too fundamentally morally stupid to understand that. Teaching liberals good ethics is like teaching cockroaches differential equations; they’re just not very good pupils.
An all-too-typical liberal moral moron wrote in the Huffington Post:
“The core American ideal of religious freedom has been put at risk… These protests, diatribes, and campaigns against Park51 violate the ideals of religious freedom to which our country has long aspired.”
And then he proceeds to lecture us on the First Amendment.
Which is exactly what the Ground Zero mosque protest isn’t about, of course.
I will be looking forward to reading this guy’s column angrily demanding that we all support Pastor Terry Jones’ Koran burning day and lecture the left that if they don’t support it, they are all a bunch of religious bigots and freedom-hating anti-Constitutionalists. But I’m not holding my breath.
Because I’d pass out. And probably miss my roll-on-the ground-laughing-at-liberals mat.
Sarah Palin Twittered her view that the Ground Zero mosque should be moved because it represented an “unnecessary provocation” that “stabs hearts,” and that it should be rejected by Muslims “in the interest of healing.” And the despicable, vile left demonized her for it, and made her “the face of intolerance” for taking a very legitimate moral stand.
Now we’ve got Pastor Terry Jones and his in-your-face Koran burning day. And what are the left saying but that it is an “unnecessary provocation” that “stabs hearts” and should be rejected by Christians “in the interest of healing.”
Because hypocrisy defines the left; it is what they are to the core of their shriveled souls.
Where’s Obama to endorse the controversial plan to burn Korans? Where is that little weasel now to tell us “that a nation built on religious freedom must allow it”? I want our moral coward in chief to be consistent for just once in his life.
And where’s the ACLU flocking to Florida and making sure nobody interferes with Pastor Terry Jones and his team of Koran burners? I mean, my Lord, these people celebrated the rights of Nazis to march through a town filled with Nazi Holocaust death camp survivors. With that kind of company, can’t they give a Koran-burner just a little love?
This nutjob Pastor Terry Jones has a tiny little congregation of just 50 lunatics. And yet the way the Obama administration is going after them, you’d think they were the ones who were way ahead of schedule developing the nuclear bomb, rather than Iran.
Attorney General Eric Holder is calling the Koran burning “idiotic and dangerous.” But this same slimeball was out with the rest of the left celebrating the Muslims’ right to build that Ground Zero mosque which was the VERY DAMN THING that provoked this pastor to start showing that Korans burn at Fahrenheit 451.
Why does the left only care about the feelings and fear the provoking of Muslims? Maybe if they had a functioning brain cell they’d think twice about that idiocy.
Hillary Clinton and her State Department went even farther, calling American citizens “un-American” for their participation in this exercise of the same religious freedoms and First Amendment rights they were celebrating when Muslims were sticking their thumbs in Americans’ eyes.
General Petraeus found it necessary to tell us that this act could provoke a response against our soldiers. But where was either he or anyone anywhere on the left worrying that the Muslim Ground Zero mosque could provoke a response by Americans, and that it therefore it shouldn’t be built there?
And just who is more depraved and intolerant: the guy who burns a Koran, or the guy who commits an act or mass acts of murder because someone burned a book?
I don’t doubt that Petraeus is right, that the Koran burning would incite terrorists. But on the other hand, you kind of have to laugh at this line of reasoning, too. I can just see Al Qaeda saying, “We only kind of hated Americans when we flew passenger planes into their biggest buildings and murdered 3,000 of them. But now we REALLY hate them!”
In all actuality, the fact that we’re worried about what Muslims will likely do just goes to demonstrate that the actual intolerant people are the very Muslims that the left has so ardently supported. And if they’re as violent and evil as the left are now warning us about due to this Koran burning, then maybe we shouldn’t be encouraging these people to come to our country and burn mosques as close as possible to a Muslim act of mass murder just 10 years ago.
For the record, I think this Pastor and his “flock” are profoundly wrong for burning Korans. Because – unlike the liberals, I am actually consistent. I think it is wrong for Muslims to build a mosque right next to Ground Zero because it was nothing more than a provocation that resolves nothing, and I think this Koran burning would be a provocation that resolves nothing.
I don’t mind being labeled as “anti-Islam,” because I don’t believe for a second that “Islam is a religion of peace.” It is, rather, a religion that boasts, “We will win, because we love death more than you love life.” But I am most definitely NOT anti-Muslim. I’ve talked with quite a few Muslims, and generally found them engaging and polite. If I saw a Muslim being assaulted I would come to his or her aid and help. And if I saw a Muslim’s property being vandalized I would call the police.
I think Islam is evil, and I believe that we should document its evil teachings and its evil deeds. But I don’t think that we should just insult Muslims with meaningless symbolic gestures merely for the sake of provoking them. Which is why I earlier called Terry Jones a “nutjob” and his congregation “lunatics.”
On the other hand, the one thing Terry Jones and his band are accomplishing is demonstrating how vile liberals and most Democrats are.
Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Attorney General Eric Holder, New York Maybor Bloomberg, and many other liberals have endorsed and supported the Ground Zero mosque. And now they have now provoked at least one man (and probably others) to commit outrageous acts. Americans overwhelmingly oppose this provocation.
Liberals are hypocrites to argue that the provocative Ground Zero mosque is a legitimate exercise of religious freedom and First Amendment rights, but that the provocative Koran Burning day is not. And they are moral cowards for cheering the mosque which deliberately provokes Americans, but crying over the provocation of Muslims via the Koran burning.
If you support the Ground Zero mosque, I hope you support the Koran burning with every bit as much zeal. But personally, I think you’re a moral idiot.
P.S. Speaking of true moral idiocy in the most blatantly morally idiotic sense of the word, Hillary Clinton’s State Department just came out with the following statemen comparing Pastor Terry Jones with the 9/11 terrorists:
“We hope that between now and Saturday, there’ll be a range of voices across America that make clear to this community that this is not the way for us to commemorate 9/11. In fact, it is consistent with the radicals and bigot – with those bigots who attacked us on 9/11.”
Only a liberal could be so profoundly stupid and fundamentally depraved to compare burning some books to murdering 3,000 innocent human beings.
