“The monument would consist of a mosque for the worship of the terrorists’ monkey-god.” Urged to apologise, he said: “I owe an apology to millions of Hindus who worship Lord Hanuman, an actual monkey god.”I don't have to be a monkey to see that he's a racist and hateful bastard. This community center is slated to be built in the old Burlington Coat Factory Building two blocks away from the World Trade Center site.
The $100 million (£69 million) project would include a swimming pool, a basketball court, a 500-seat theatre and possibly a daycare centre. About 2,000 Muslims are expected to attend Friday prayers there.Well, I wonder if he realizes that there was a mosque IN the WTC. Just as there was a shul. Jews and Muslims need to pray during the work day and the WTC accounted for that. I imagine there was a chapel as well. So, if they are building another mosque/community center near by--I am sure that it serves a need for the Mulim-American community. Remember, none of the terrorists were American. And, even if you disagree with Muslims' freedom to worship, how can an emerging third party's leader say ignoramus things like "monkey-god."
So, they lost me.
I find it hard to believe that the Tea Party will continue to gain power when they spew nonsense like this. How will they gain the support of sane and educated people? I'm not sure if the Tea Party is going to continue to support this monkey asswipe as a political boss, but I am probably lost to their cause.
Do you support the tea party?
