Lessee - Barry refused to attend events on The National Day of Prayer. He opted to appear on 'The View' do a bit of fundraising instead of speaking to the Boy Scouts. But...


He had time to attend a Muslim Ramadan dinner at the White House, where he - you better sit down for this - supported the building of a Mosque/Cultural Center/$100 million plus (of whose money, no one's sure) Islamic something-or-other at Ground Zero in New York. He said it's because America's commitment to freedom of religion "must be unshakable".

But for Obama, that unshakable commitment seems pretty damn one-sided. When Barry supports Robert Schuller building a Crystal Cathedral in Mecca with US government dollars, then I'll believe he means it.

UPDATE 14AUG2010: Obama to the gathered Muslims at the White House: "Ground Zero is, indeed, hallowed ground. But..."


Sir, there is no "but" after that first statement. There never should be when it comes to Ground Zero. It IS hallowed ground. End. Of. Sentence. The people who caused the deaths of almost 3,000 Americans in a day - the worst attack on our country in more than a century - weren't singing 'The Internationale' when they crashed those planes into the Twin Towers and the Pentagon, or saying the Lord's Prayer. They were shouting, "Allahu akbar!". Did you forget this, Mr. President?

Simply because someone can, doesn't always mean they should.

UPDATE 14AUG2010: The Grey Man makes a great analogy in the comments: "Will we now have a Confederate Heritage Center at Gettysburg? A Japanese Embassy next to the Arizona?"

UPDATE 14AUG2010: Obama getting his dhimmitude on isn't sitting at all well with those ignorant, ungrateful proles the American people. Of course, the Team Hopenchange spinning has begun.

Realistically, the mosque will probably never happen for the worst of reasons. NY's corrupt laws require Union everything. Think any union members will build this after spending a year cleaning up Ground Zero?

I recommend we raise money for the biggest frigging cathedral ever seen. Let's dwarf the Vatican on one side, with America's biggest strip club on the other, and a huge gay bar across the road.
