    They still have permitting requirements & zoning ordinances, just like any other city. Most cities won't allow a strip club to be built next to a school, either.

    Which is a shame, too. I think it would be a great lesson for all the girls at that particular school on the necessity to get a diploma.

    Add to that: hospitals, old folks homes, day cares etc.

    His strawman is that when people argued that these people had every right to build a mosque near 9/11, it was an argument based on the U.S. being a 'free country'. The real argument was that these people had not committed a single crime in obtaining the rights and permits to build a land and prohibiting them from building a mosque through legislation or the feelings of the public would violate their first amendment rights.

    He's trying to build a bar, not a strip club.

    That being the case, would it be difficult to get a liquor license in this instance?

    Considering that Greg Gutfeld is a comedian, I'd say that this isn't a serious attempt at all. Of course, if he is serious he certainly has a right to do so, but it seems like it would be a poor investment. It's probably just a lame excuse to make jokes that are both homophobic and anti-Islamic at the same time, very poor taste.

    So it isn't a free country. Cities do descriminate on who can put what where.

    We heard so much from the other thread that if they have the money and the property is available they should be able to put a Mosque anywhere they want. Double standard FTW

    What crime has Gutfeld committed? Your argument is so thin its almost transparent
