Yes some small pockets of moderate American muslims are coming out and speaking out disagreeing with the placement of the Islamic Center / Mosque. Where are the rest?
    Where are the rest? Hmmm, I guess they must be hiding in the shades of grey you mentioned for fear of getting stabbed by a deranged American or lynched by a mob who have been influenced by the ginned up right wing rhetoric against Muslims. No doubt, "good Muslims" see what happens when they speak out. They still get accused of being terrorists.

    And when the progressive liberal left start degrading those who don't agree with them and start throwing around vitriolic propaganda like "Islamaphobic" and "un-American"... we have to realize these are the same progressive liberals who want God stricken from every public building, off our money, and manger scenes taken down each and every Christmas. I just can't bring myself to give them much credibility on such an issue as this.
    LOL You didn't give yourself very much credibilty either when you recognized there is black and white thinking about Muslims (good Muslim, bad muslim) and then labeled and blamed an entire demographic of people as "Progressive, liberal, liberal" for the actions of a few. "Progressive, liberal, left." Phew, that label sure says it all, doesn't it? Apparently, labels must help you think in black and white or you probably wouldn't be able to think at all.

    So tell me, since you only understand labels, where are the moderate conservatives and why aren't they speaking out against this blatant attack on the first amendment? Do they even exist or have they have all been purged from the Republican party?

    You don't have to like it but it is their right to do so.
    Unless ofc, you have access to CIA files which shows the Imam is linked with terrorists and the centre is going to be a base for terrorist activity.

    In which case, show 'em.


    The fail in that statement. Lol. Just lol

    I don't like it, and it's not funny. I do hope they find something really juicy on the Imam, since he did say we were partially responsible for 9/11. He's not a really nice man to have said that. Sometimes you need to shut up, but obviously he couldn't. They had that little hole in the wall place, and now they're gonna have this big expensive building. Shame on them. And shame on us if we let this happen if we can stop it. I say, don't let them get over on us. No way! No shenanigans!

    Sure Americans can stop it being built.

    Burn your constitution and it can happen.

    FALSE -- that's not what he said, get better informed, stop watching Sean Hannity....

    He's not a really nice man to have said that.
    How would you know anything about him?


    Sometimes you need to shut up
    Indeed.

    Start watching 60 minutes because that's nearly exactly what he said. He labled the U.S. as an accessory to the crime of 9-11.
