The 'kill the messenger' mentality is alive and well in Liberalland. Stiffle criticism instead of answering it.



House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, California Democrat, called for an investigation of those who are protesting the building of the Ground Zero Mosque on Tuesday. She told San Francisco's KCBS radio (http://kcbs.cbslocal.com/2010/08/17/pelosi-on-mosque-plans-for-the-wtc-site/)

"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. "How is this being ginned up that here we are talking about Treasure Island, something we've been working on for decades, something of great interest to our community as we go forward to an election about the future of our country and two of the first three questions are about a zoning issue in New York City." (h/t Kristinn)
Calls to investigate the funding for those proposing the $100 million "Cordoba House" have fallen on deaf ears, though, as New York's Mayor Mike Bloomberg has described such an investigation as "un-American."

Ms. Pelosi called the Ground Zero mosque an "urban development decision" for New Yorkers to work through. Her remarks happened on the heels of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Nevada Democrat, parting ways with President Barack Obama on the issue. Mr. Reid suggested the mosque should be built somewhere else.

I like how the left are all claiming that people should be allowed to do what they like on private property when anyone with a brain knows that any such claim is a blatant and abject lie.

This is almost funny. All of a sudden this is a private property and religious freedom issue with the left. How come the left wasn't this adamant about Kelo v. New London?

Where were these people when Kelo v. New London was adjudicated? Not to mention the other countless cases of eminent domain. Oh, and for those who care, the land that the SC so delicately ripped from property owners is now an empty lot.

They only care about the rights of protected groups.

From the FoxNews story:
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2010/08/18/pelosi-calls-mosque-debate-zoning-issue-says-new-yorkers-decide/



House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is suggesting a coordinated effort is behind the opposition to a proposed mosque and community center near Ground Zero, saying the whole dispute has been "ginned up" for political purposes and she supports a probe into those opponents.
Commenting publicly for the first time on the Park 51 project, Pelosi said the issue was posing a distraction and that some organized force is behind it.


Newsflash for Nan, that organized force behind it is called THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. You know....as in "WE THE PEOPLE" who you're supposed to be working for.

That's blatantly obvious.

Why isn't she investigating the reason why the Greek Orthodox church, that was destroyed on 9/11, is going through their troubles trying to rebuild. Where is their religious freedom?

C'mon, get with the left wing program! Sheesh! Greek Orthodox might as well be Jews, and they ran out of left-wing "rights and liberties" tokens. The muslim groups have the all the "rights and liberties" tokens now.

In 1963 a KKK member bombed a Negro church in Birmingham, Ala. killing 4 kids. I wonder if everyone would be this tolerant if the KKK wanted to put up a museum across the street from this church?
