Palin Suffers From Twit Tic: Tweets Ground Zero Mosque Questions to Obama
August 16, 2010
(ChattahBox)—Not to be left out of the religious bigotry feeding frenzy of the GOP, former half-term governor Sarah Palin twitted out some idiotic tweets on her Twitter machine Saturday, questioning President Obama on his views of the “wisdom” of building an Islamic community center in Lower Manhattan. “Mr. President, did you encourage the mosque dvlprs to accept Gov. Patterson’s offer of land if they move away from hallowed ground @ GZero?” She also posted her questions on Facebook, entitled “Legitimate Questions for the President,” insisting President Obama announce whether he agrees with the Islamic community center developers. Note to Palin: the proposed community center is NOT on hallowed ground. The site is two-blocks away from Ground Zero in a former Burlington Coat Factory building. Secondly, Obama said on Saturday, “I was not commenting, and I will not comment, on the wisdom of making the decision to put a Mosque there.”
Wrote Palin on her Facebook page:
“Mr. President, should they or should they not build a mosque steps away from where radical Islamists killed 3000 people? Please tell us your position. We all know that they have the right to do it, but should they? And, no, this is not above your pay grade.”
The factually challenged half gov. then proceeded to spit out multiple postings on her Twitter page, apparently suffering from some sort of twit tic.
In one of her tweets, Palin compares the Islamic community center in Lower Manhattan to building a Serbian Orthodox Church on top of the killing fields at Srebrenica.
“9/11 mosque=act of fitna, “equivalent to bldg Serbian Orthodox church@Srebrenica killing fields where Muslims were slaughtered” – Raza&Fatah”
Palin, disgraced former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and the Fox News right-wing noise machine, can resort to fearmongering, hysteria and religious bigotry all they want. But their divisive bigotry won’t change and shouldn’t change, the basic fundamental constitutional principles our country is founded upon.
And that’s why Presiden Obama, as our leader, spoke out against religious intolerance of the type espoused by Palin and Gingrich, in favor of religious freedom.
