The Ground Zero Mosque is without a doubt the most outrageous surrender to political correctness and multiculturalism that I have ever seen in my lifetime.
It is a 13-story monument to Islamic terrorism that will be built as a tribute to 9/11 victims on a national graveyard. The groundbreaking ceremony is scheduled to take place on September 11th. The Ground Zero Mosque will open its doors on the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.
The audacity of these people and their calculated symbolism is breathtaking. I’ve never seen a bigger slap across the face of White America.
This represents a historical milestone in our collective national decline. It is one of those moments that White Americans will look back on in old age and vividly recall as a point when the downward spiral began to accelerate.
Before anyone points out the obvious, I don’t agree with everything that Pat Condell says above, especially twaddle about “Islamonazism” in the middle of the video. Islamic triumphalism isn’t the real issue. As everyone here knows, it is only a symptom of the larger problem.
In a healthy society, one ruled by a self confident elite, such a national insult would never be tolerated. Instead, Michael Bloomberg*, the Mayor of New York City, went on national television to accuse his critics of surrendering to terrorism.
1.) The Ground Zero Mosque exposes the true nature of multiculturalism and political correctness. White Americans are told they must police their language and walk on eggshells in order not to give offense to minority groups. As we recently saw with Mel Gibson, we live in a world where uttering an offensive racial slur in the privacy of your own home can end careers.
It is hard to imagine a more provocative and insensitive act designed to offend White America than building a monument to the 9/11 terrorists on Ground Zero.
The critical point to be made here is that liberals who insist on “diversity training” in the workplace and an elaborate code of racial etiquette designed to avoid giving offense to “people of color” do not hesitate for a second to defend the insensitivity of this calculated insult to the White majority.
2.) Lawrence Auster once made the acute observation that every time the “protected classes” misbehave, as Muslims did on 9/11, those Americans who are infected with multiculturalism and political correctness will redouble their efforts to make excuses for the atrocity and redirect their criticism at the victims.
3.) The fight over the Ground Zero Mosque must be seen in the proper historical context: as the latest clash between the Blues and Reds over the future of America.
The Blues are using the Ground Zero Mosque as an opportunity to flaunt their moral superiority and social status over the Reds. It is just another example of twisting their nose and waving the flag in front of the bull.
They are deploying all their usual insincere rhetoric about nativism, racism, xenophobia, hate, bigotry, and intolerance. The Blues preach inclusiveness and universalism, but only as a boundry marker, as a way to exclude and distinguish themselves from the Reds.
The Blues see themselves as towering above the Reds whom they consider their social inferiors. As their social inferiors, it is perfectly acceptable to show gross insensitivity, offense, and disrespect toward the Reds, which is why all the Blues are defending the Ground Zero Mosque.
Flying the Confederate Flag in South Carolina? That’s offensive to African-Americans. Haul it down.
Naming a building at the University of Texas after a Klansman? That’s insensitive to African-Americans. Rename the building.
Indulging Strom Thurmond on his 100th birthday? That’s insensitive to African-Americans. Trent Lott must resign.
Building the Ground Zero Mosque at the World Trade Center site and opening it up on the tenth anniversary of 9/11? That’s offensive to White Americans. Proceed.
Spit in their face.
I’ve spent a lot of time lately writing about how White America is stirring and waking up from its slumber. The alarm clock is going off after forty years of multiculturalism and political correctness. In the previous thread, I pointed to recent polls which show a collapse in the legitimacy of major institutions.
The budding anti-mosque movement is another side of the same coin. It is becoming increasingly commonplace for the Reds to protest mosques in the name of the “Real America.”
Granted, this is retarded and kosher, and misses the real enemy by miles, but there is a larger significant point being made here which is not lost on our enemies: a cultural identity is being asserted and another identity is being declared incompatible with that identity.
The message being sent is that America is more than “freedom of religion” and “property rights.” It is not a mere geographic space where anyone can do business and no one cares who will live here a hundred years from now.
Like black criminals and illegal aliens, Muslim terrorists are highly visible soft targets. They are the thin edge of the wedge or the tip of the iceberg which can lead to a greater understanding of more important issues, namely, the impending demise of White America and the tyranny that will be established over our descendants.
The Ground Zero Mosque is stirring a polarizing debate over American identity. A blunder of this magnitude shouldn’t be allowed to go to waste.
