GROUND ZERO MOSQUE comes up in the Weiner-seat race.
Remember all those lengthy lectures 13 months ago from our moral and intellectual superiors on the Ground Zero Mosque? Liberals insisted that we should be tolerant and support those all-American things like freedom of some religions, single moms, and the Prius. My how our liberal betters strutted and preened and clucked their tongues at us mouth-breathing, booger-eating, inbred, racist Tea Baggers for daring to suggest that maybe this was a bad idea. We must stand by basic American principles, they said.
Now, with a congressional seat in balance, liberals are saying How Dare You Quote Us!
Have you no decency, sir, and all that bunk.
I am rather amused. Republican Bob Turner faces Assemblyman David Weprin in Tuesday’s election to find a successor to Democratic former Congressman Anthony Weiner, whose boner on Twitter cost him his job. Weprin appears in a yarmulke in his ads. Turner cannot. That is how important a certain religion is in the Brooklyn/Queens district. The problem for David Weprin is, a year ago, he supported the Ground Zero Mosque. . . . My, my, my. If supporting the building of the mosque is the right thing to do, why not stand by those words that were said 13 months ago? Oh wait, that high-moral-ground stand might cost Democrats a seat in Congress. So what liberals are saying is that they are willing to stand up for unpopular causes — unless doing what they say is right may cost them a few votes.
Quoting people’s statements when they are politically damaging is unfair, or something.
