Ground Zero Mosque Poll Proves Ruling Elite Out Of Touch

The latest poll results from the Washington Post prove that the ruling elite do not represent the views of the average American.  An overwhelming two thirds of voters decisively reject the notion that Ground Zero, the site of America’s greastest mass murder, is the appropriate site to build a Muslim monument.   In addition, half of all Americans have an unfavorable opinion of Islam.   Why do so many of the ruling elite miss the common sense element and vehemently support the Mosque?

Washington Post – Two-thirds of those polled object to the prospective Cordoba House complex near the site of the former twin towers, including a slim majority who express strongly negative views.

-49 percent of all Americans say they have generally unfavorable opinions of Islam

-Nearly a third of all Americans see mainstream Islam as encouraging violence

Americans recognize that it is simply not right to build a Muslim mosque next to a site that is still an open wound for many Americans.    If the builders of the proposed mosque possessed simple human decency or respect for 3,000 murder victims, the mosque project would have never been proposed.  The mosque project is an act of outrageous provocation and Americans should push back.

America’s outrage should be equally directed at both the mosque builders and the politicians who support the mosque under the banner of “religious freedom”.  A huge majority of Americans already believe that the government does not have the consent of the governed and this is a prime example for feeling that way. 

It’s a big country – pick another place!

Location matters. Especially this location. Ground Zero is the site of the greatest mass murder in American history — perpetrated by Muslims of a particular Islamist orthodoxy in whose cause they died and in whose name they killed.

America is a free country where you can build whatever you want — but not anywhere. That’s why we have zoning laws. No liquor store near a school, no strip malls where they offend local sensibilities, and, if your house doesn’t meet community architectural codes, you cannot build at all.

These restrictions are for reasons of aesthetics. Others are for more profound reasons of common decency and respect for the sacred. No commercial tower over Gettysburg, no convent at Auschwitz — and no mosque at Ground Zero.

Build it anywhere but there.
