Obama Celebrates Ramadan by Pushing for Mosque at Ground Zero

I am surprised that Obama showed himself so eager to trample on the sacred ground that is Ground Zero. I thought he was going to stay well concealed behind Mayor Michael El-Bloomberg and his cronies in the various ACORN-infested councils of New York City. It does seem obvious that Obama has been behind this nefarious plot all along--it certainly would not be happening without his strong approval.

But I didn't think the president had it in him to come right out and tell the American people that they don't count at all, ever, alive or dead. It does, after all, take, ahem, well, you know. He must have borrowed a pair for the occasion.

But he'd need a much bigger pair to stand up to Daisy Khan and her Ground Zero imam, it seems. Or, he'd have to actually want to.
As a citizen, and as president, I believe that Muslims have the same right to practice their religion as anyone else in this country. 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. This is America, and our commitment to religious freedom must be unshakable.
Got it. Americans' freedom to grieve for their dead is nothing compared to Muslims' freedom to celebrate our loss and rub our noses in it. They couldn't have their religious freedom down the street, say, or even in one of the at least 100 other mosques already existing in New York City.

One thing Obama won't admit to is understanding what is plain to most Americans, like Charles Krauthammer, an American born in New York (and I'll bet he has the birth certificate to prove it).
When we speak of Ground Zero as hallowed ground, what we mean is that it belongs to those who suffered and died there — and that such ownership obliges us, the living, to preserve the dignity and memory of the place, never allowing it to be forgotten, trivialized or misappropriated.
Many will argue that Obama just doesn't get it. Don't fall for that. This is not Obama's first attempt to desecrate 9/11. One year ago, almost to the day, his administration got together with ACORN, the AFL-CIO, the Apollo Alliance, Friends of the Earth, the RainbowPUSH Coalition, and a raft of other leftist "organizations" to turn 9/11 into a "Day of Service" to obliterate the memory of that day's events. The sick rationale: to drain 9/11 of all meaning because the 9/11 attack "helps" republicans.

That's how these people think. Nothing is sacred to them.
