If you needed any more proof to conclude that the woman who is second in line for the Presidency is a complete idiot, you've got it today. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is now claiming that the opposition to the Ground Zero mosque is a right wing conspiracy being "ginned up" for political purposes, and she has called for an investigation into the funding behind such opposition.
"There is no question that there is a concerted effort to make this a political issue by some," she said Tuesday, "and I join those who have called for looking into how is this opposition to the mosque being funded."
On Wednesday, Pelosi's office said that she is not calling for a "congressional inquiry," though she still supports looking into the funding of the mosque's opponents. "I support the statement made by the Interfaith Alliance that 'We agree with the (Anti-Defamation League) that there is a need for transparency about who is funding the effort to build this Islamic center. At the same time, we should also ask who is funding the attacks against the construction of the center," she said.
Actually, I hope they do figure it out, so I can know where to send my invoice for my services in opposing the Ground Zero mosque.
Speaker Pelosi, last time I checked the Constitution, which you and Comrade Obama are working so hard to destroy, still contains a First Amendment that allows for free speech. There is a major difference between, on one hand, looking into clandestine funding for a group that has never had more than $100,000 to its name now wanting to build a multi-million dollar Islamic shrine in Manhattan, and on the other hand, a substantial number of Americans voicing opposition to said project.
I have detailed the issues, as I see them, in several previous posts on this site, as well as in my column that will run in the Georgetown News-Graphic on August 19. There are ample questions into why an Islamic group wants to build this mosque two blocks from Ground Zero, and name it for a symbol of Islamic conquest over Christians. What is proposed is literally and figuratively a huge toehold for a mysterious group on prime U.S. real estate.
The opposition, however, is many Americans, no matter how organized, voicing their offense and opposition to the site for the proposed mosque, and at the double standard propounded by Pelosi and her ilk who fall all over themselves to avoid "offending" Islam, while doing nothing about the dozens of atrocities perpetrated in the name of Islam on a weekly basis.
Nancy Pelosi is a complete and utter idiot who should be summarily dispatched back to her mansion in California, so she can botox herself into oblivion. As Speaker of the House, she is a clear and present danger to the United States and its people.
