    The 911 Hard Hat Pledge

    The 911 Hard Hat Pledge
    Here are the names of union and non-union tradesman who refuse towork the site of the proposed Ground Zero Mosque. We feel we have been betrayed by our civic leaders and elected officials as they allow the Cordoba Initiative Group build their Mega-Mosque on top of the ashes of the 3,ooo innocents who were slaughtered on 911.

    The attackers yelled “Allah Ahkbar” as they destroyed our symbols of economic power and liberty filled with Americans.

    Across the world and even in our own neighborhoods Muslims celebrated in the streets as the nation grieved like never before. The Imam Feisal Rauff leader of the Cordoba Initiative days after the attacks on 60 minutes called the United States an accessory to the crime and for all intents and purposes Osama Bin Laden was made in the U.S.A. This is the man responsible for the project to build this Mosque of tolerance and peace. He has refused to condem Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood as terrorist organizations and will not reveal the massive funding he needs to complete the project these facts cast a dark shadow over the Imam’s true intentions.

    My fellow Americans stand together and pledge not to work this hurtful insensitive project. Without us this sacrilige cannot be built. Let us show the younger generation what it is to be a proud American and defend those brave souls who now lie in a pit at Ground Zero unable to speak because their light was snuffed out by the worst attack in our nation’s history. Together we will achieve this.
    Sounds perfectly reasonable to me, in addition to the various proposals for gay bars and bacon street vending at the mosque, lets have some old fashioned picket lines, too.

    If they can get the Unions, not just the hard hats behind this, then no, it will never be built.

    This is dumb.
    These people didn't do anything to anyone.

    I'd work for them just to spite you all.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    So many people taking so much joy in disallowing American citizens from enacting their protected civil rights.

    #1 - It's 2 blocks from Ground Zero - so it's not a "Ground Zero Mosque".

    #2 - It's an Islamic Community Center that include - along with prayer space - a basketball court, a theater, and is open to the entire public. Thus, it is not only NOT a "Ground Zero Mosque" because it's not at Ground Zero, it's also not even a Mosque - no more than St. Mary's Hospital is a Church because it has a chapel in it.

    #3 - This is a yet another instance of Conservatives (and wimpy a-holes like Harry Reid) reveling in the restriction of someone's rights. Gotta take away the rights of gays in California to marry; gotta prevent Muslims from building a Community Center; gotta take citizenship rights away from immigrants.

    The only threat to freedom I see comes from the likes of Newt Gingrich, Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, and their supporters.

    If you are against this, then you are in favor of any group preventing the construction of any building on private land anywhere simply because they might take offense to it. Go ahead. Open that can of worms.

    It will very likely get built and there will be people who will build it - in a down economy (especially for construction workers), intelligent beings will take the money.

    So its like a YMCA or a JCC?

    Well, the YMCA is no longer really associated with christianity these days.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Since when have the "conservatives" of the US been so concerned about being politically correct and so concerned about the "feeling of people"

    This is really a case of all muslims being blamed
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    The government's not involved in denying them their freedom to build, and as far as I know, I haven't heard anyone say that the fed should get involved in denying them the right to build. This is not a first ammendment issue, just as the Laura Schlessinger situation was not a first ammendment issue. In both cases they are free to go forward, in both cases they will have to suffer the peoples opinion for the decisions they made. People that disagree have the right to express that disagreement.

    #2 - It's an Islamic Community Center that include - along with prayer space - a basketball court, a theater, and is open to the entire public. Thus, it is not only NOT a "Ground Zero Mosque" because it's not at Ground Zero, it's also not even a Mosque - no more than St. Mary's Hospital is a Church because it has a chapel in it.
    Will muslims be entering the site to pray and worship their God? If so, and they will be, it fits the very definition of mosque. We have a mega church by us. It contains swimming pools, gymnasium, restaraunts, etc, etc. While it can be more than just a church, it is still a church. By the same token this building can be more than just a mosque, but it will be a mosque.

    Rauf has even stated that one of the reasons this building was necessary was that other mosques in the area were rather full, and this would be able to take in that overflow.
