    Howard Dean: NYC Mosque a "Real Affront"

    Howard Dean: NYC Mosque a "Real Affront" - Political Hotsheet - CBS News

    Former Democratic presidential candidate and Vermont governor Howard Dean, a hero to many liberals, has called efforts to build an Islamic community center two blocks from the site of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks "a real affront to people who lost their lives."

    "That site doesn't belong to any particular religion, it belongs to all Americans and all faiths," he said.

    ...

    Meanwhile, conservative Ted Olson, whose wife died in the terrorist attacks, broke with the majority of conservatives to support the project. He said he believes President Obama "was right about this."

    "I do believe that people of all religions have a right to build edifices or structures, or places of religious worship or study where the community allows them to do it under zoning laws and that sort of thing," he said on MSNBC. "And that we don't want to turn an act of hate against us by extremists into an act of intolerance for people of religious faith. And I don't think it should be a political issue."
    Why are conservatives such hate-filled bigots?
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    In related news, Dean is a desperate hypocritical douchebag.

    "It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters." - D. Webster

    Who disagrees with what Obama said? No one I know of.

    This isn't a political issue, and for the most part it really isn't about tolerance of Islam. There are two factors at work here: what people believe the intentions behind the mosque are, and what people believe the response to the mosque will be. These things do not have clear conservative/liberal divisions, though differences in their outlook on human nature surely color their responses.
