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.

Below are Palin’s tweets demanding that President Obama answer her questions:

    The St. Paul’s Chapel of Trinity Church is 2 Blocks from the twin towers and i have a photo of that church covered in ash, papers, debris and broken windows from the attack on the twin towers on 9/11/2001
    I feel as many do that 2 Blocks away is Hallowed Ground!
    And i do not think that the proposed Mosques is in anyway a olive branch to the American People.

    If you want to know about “religious intolerance” perhaps you should remember the 3,000 of your fellow citizens who were slaughtered on your streets because of it.

    They are the bigots, and you are ignorant!

    I guess the entire nation is nothing but a bunch of bigots then, because over 70 percent are against this insult to America.

    Your “president” is not a leader, BTW.

    The link Sarah posted is to an editorial by two Muslims explaining that what the terrorists behind the Ground Zero Mosque are doing is against the Koran.

    And yes, the people involved with that Mosque are terrorist, including Hamas.

    Of course, Obama would side with Hamas, because his church of 20 years supports them with money and other aid.

    You ignorant liberals need to read up on Cordoba, Spain, and how it was conquered by Islamic armies. Learn THAT and you’ll understand why these terrorists want the Cordoba House (the official name of this thing) built on Ground Zero.

    It’s a symbol of victory and conquest.

    Your man Barry is no leader, but Sarah Palin is.

    I’m not sure how I feel about a mosque near Ground Zero. But I do think we need to remember the foundation of tolerance and inclusion upon which this country was built. If we “outlaw” certain religions/societal beliefs, where do we stop? Do we outlaw owning Hondas and Toyotas because of the Americans lost at Pearl Harbor and in the War in the Pacific (which is where my father, a U.S. Marine, fought)? Do we outlaw the practice of the Lutheran religion, founded by a German, to honor the Americans who died in WWII? Yes, 3000 people died on 9/11, due to a group of people who tried to use God’s name to justify cruelty and hatred. For me, I’m pretty sure that’s what NOT using the Lord’s name in vain really means. So…is it then right to do the same thing in reverse? Is it?

  5. Alexandra on August 16th, 2010 1:41 pm

    To Gary: Perhaps you need to read up on the history of Cordoba Spain. It was conquored by Islamic armies and those armies, upon occupying it, did build a mosque, BUT they did not outlaw or discourage Christianity. Both Muslim and Christians worshiped in peace during that occupation. Perhaps it would be prudent to consider that just because Sarah Palin says something, doesn’t mean it’s true or factual. Actually, nearly everything she says has proven to have no basis in fact. She just counts on the premise that everyone out here in general-public-land is too lazy to look anything up.

    WOW, it is sad to see that racism is still alive and well in this country. I am against all radicals, including radical Christians. We have many people on all sides promoting hate. Personally I doubt that Ms. Palin cares about what Christ would have done in this situation. It seems she is too busy forwarding her political career.
    I would also like to point out the our President is not the only one who has a past history of attending a church that is radical. Ms. Palin was blessed against witchcraft at her church in Wasilla. She also can be viewed on Youtube telling the congregation that GOD put her in office. I doubt that the creator has much to do with our political figures considering their low level of morality (both Democrats and Republicans).
    When will Americans realize that both parties are dishonest and that there is nothing wrong with being a conservative or liberal. It is just an opinion, nothing to hate each other over.

    “Radical Islamists” shouldn’t mean the entire nation of Islam (unless you mean it in a racist way.)
    Lynchings in the U.S. were all done by Christians.
    Condem all Christians for this act?
    I don’t think so.

    Does any politician seriously think that allowing the Muslims to build this Victory Mosque will pacify them or prevent further attacks? In fact, it will only encourage them, in the same way that allowing the Nazis to occupy the Rhineland led to their occupation of Austria, Czechoslovakia, Poland and then the whole of Europe.

    The politicians should read the links under ‘Appeasement’ at EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT ISLAM

    Seems odd to me that “Constitutionalists” feel they can deride the First Amendment when it doesn’t agree with their moronic, racist and divisive illusions.

    Giving into this hatred of Muslims is giving into radicalism. People need to understand that the war in Iraq was against terrorists and radicals, NOT against Muslim Americans.

    To tell Muslim Americans to build their site elsewhere is to tell them they are not American.

    Would we equally sneer at a muslim tourist wearing a headscarf while she visits ground zero? I would hope not.

    After 9/11, there were a lot of mosques that were desecrated and set on fire. There was also discrimination and crimes against muslim americans. It was misplaced anger as this controversy is now.
