I vehemently oppose a mosque and Muslim community center being constructed in the shadows of Ground Zero.
I find this to be incredibly, and I would argue, intentionally, insensitive.
Some readers aren’t happy about my outrage. Their PC-ness and inability to reason has them painting me as hating all Muslims. I don’t hate anybody. I do have a major, serious, huge problem with the many, many, many, many, many, many, many, many, many, many Muslims that want to kill Americans. And I don’t apologize for that, to anyone.
Let’s be even more direct and in your face by calling in one of my favorite columnists, Doug Giles (I’ve just got to get him on my show when I fill in at WISN). From his just released column…take it away, Doug:
“Building a mosque at Ground Zero is like OJ’s mom putting a glamour shot of Orenthal over Nicole Brown’s gravestone. In other words, it’s very wrong and extremely disgusting, as every person with a lick of decency would agree.

This is sick, twisted, rancid, pathetic, profane and offensive in the extreme. But this is what they historically do. Muslims see our 3,000 murdered citizens as a conquest to be celebrated, so they’re going to memorialize their bloody victory by establishing a mosque in honor of that sad morning.”
That’s most of Giles’ outstanding column. Read the entire masterpiece here.
