Barack Hussein Obama Comes Out in Favor of Allowing Mosque Near Ground Zero


Just because you have a right to do something, does not make it right.

Surprise, surprise, surprise … President Barack Hussein Obama comes out in favor of allowing the building of a mosque near “Ground Zero”. What else would we have expected from this President who at every opportunity seems to spit in the eye of America and tries to demoralize its citizens. As Obama honored the beginning of the the Islamic Holy month Of Ramadan at a WH dinner, he then praised the building of the controversial Mosque near Ground Zero under the guise of Freedom of Religion.


Make no mistake, this has nothing to do with Freedom of Religion and people saying that a mosquw cannot be built. It has to do with Muslim’s using common sense and tolerance for understanding what Ground Zero and the vincinity means to NY’ers, Americans and the families who lost loved ones. According to a recent Fox Poll, 61% stated that they have a right to build a mosque; however, 64% believe it is wrong to build near Ground Zero.

Why would we ever think that this President would ever act Presidential and come down on the the side of tolerance and deference for the victims and families of 9-11? Sadly, this President could not find it in himself to say, that although individuals have a right to build a religious mosque near Ground Zero, that they should be tolerant and sympathetic of others in maybe considering another location. Failure to act a a US President and provide such leadership and understanding is exactly the reason why Obama has an approval rating in the low 40′s and will be a one term President. This extremist President continually thumbs his nose at “We the People” on every issue. This time Obama sides with 20% of Americans.

Obama had been hesitant on getting involved in this hot button topic; however, much to the dismay of Democrats running in 2010, Obama jumped into the mosque discussion, hook, line and sinker. Just what Democrats needed prior to the 2010 midterm elections, another issue that smacks in the face of the majority of Americans.

After skirting the controversy for weeks, President Barack Obama is weighing in forcefully on the mosque near ground zero, saying a nation built on religious freedom must allow it.

“As a citizen, and as president, I believe that Muslims have the same right to practice their religion as everyone else in this country,” Obama told an intently listening crowd gathered at the White House Friday evening to observe the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.

“That includes the right to build a place of worship and a community center on private property in lower Manhattan, in accordance with local laws and ordinances,” he said. “This is America, and our commitment to religious freedom must be unshakable.”

The full text of Obama’s speech as he speaks at the White House Iftar dinner on Ramadan and panders to political correctness and Islam.

That is not to say that religion is without controversy. Recently, attention has been focused on the construction of mosques in certain communities – particularly in New York. Now, we must all recognize and respect the sensitivities surrounding the development of lower Manhattan. The 9/11 attacks were a deeply traumatic event for our country. The pain and suffering experienced by those who lost loved ones is unimaginable. So I understand the emotions that this issue engenders. Ground Zero is, indeed, hallowed ground.

But let me be clear: as a citizen, and as President, I believe that Muslims have the same right to practice their religion as anyone else in this country. That includes the right to build a place of worship and a community center on private property in lower Manhattan, in accordance with local laws and ordinances. This is America, and our commitment to religious freedom must be unshakeable. The principle that people of all faiths are welcome in this country, and will not be treated differently by their government, is essential to who we are. The writ of our Founders must endure.

      hello, was there ANY question where I Won would stand on this issue? Remember, he was RAISED as a Muslin. He hasn’t found a Christian church to attend since he left the Rev. Wright’s American White hating church.

      Yes, we are founded on religious freedom – but no one is denying muslins a place to worship – only suggesting that across the street from where muslins KILLED 3,000 Americans isn’t THE place.

      Oh and where is that separation of church and state the liberals are so fond of when Obama weights in on a religious matter?

    2. dawg1948 on August 14th, 2010 12:37 pm

      This “President” is a complete and total DORK when it comes to matters of sensitivity. The Damn Mosque can be built somewhere else in the NYC, its not like the people are denying them the right to build and worship as they please only demanding another site for the Mosque, which is a more realistic solution to this question than “The Ones” complete and total compitulation to the Muslims.

      Back during my all-expense-paid tour of sunny Southeast Asia, the bad guys had a trick they used to use when the good guys showed up in their junglehood. They would send out a couple of their guys to serve as lures to try to draw us into their kill zone.

      The problem isn’t the mosque or its location. The problem is the Islam. Muslims have been doing things like this for 13 centuries. They are well practiced at it. While trying to resist the mosque is, in a sense, admirable, it takes the focus off Islam and Mohammed and his 9-year-old trophy wife Aisha. The muslims are getting their jollies watching the idiot infidels banging their heads against their Islamic wall. They have put the infidel, once again, into a no-win situation. If the mosque is stopped, Americans have suspended their American values. If the mosque goes forward, the muslims have put their supremacist Islamic thumb in America’s eye. If the muslims walk away from the deal they are magnanimous benefactors to their fellow citizens.

      My youth in the Bronx tells me to get in touch with the owner of the property across the street and propose putting one of those computer message boards on the outside of his building. The message board could be entitled “Islamic Thought of the Day” or some such. I would recommend for the opening day, “Mohammed married Aisha when she was six and consumated the marriage when she was nine.” Oh, yeah, and perhaps an artful “Have a Nice Day” across the bottom of the board would be appropriate.

      It’s the Islam, stupid!!! It always has been and always will be. What they want most to protect is what we must attack. There is a reason why muslims are so easily aggravated by criticism of their “religion” or proselytization of its adherents by other religions. It’s their greatest vulnerability.

    4. A Texas Grandfather on August 14th, 2010 12:59 pm

      Once a muslim, always a muslim. So what should people expect?

      Barry does not care about the American people. He has no moral values that match our society.

      The American people need to wake up to the fact that the so called muslim relegion is not a relegion at all,but a political hate system that has as its goals to enslave all people on the planet.

    5. AntiqueRose on August 14th, 2010 1:02 pm

      Well said, Katablog. There are very strong feelings about this happening, and it is just a feeling I have that they may TRY to build but it won’t be completed without a lot of grief. Just sayin…

    6. rightknight on August 14th, 2010 1:29 pm

      Islam is a political system (kinda totalitarian) as well
      as having a religious element in it. That system conflicts
      with the United States Constitution. Does Sharia Law
      encourage our American way of life or what?

    7. Scared Monkeys on August 14th, 2010 2:19 pm

      This President has become nothing more than a devisive trouble maker.

      He sits back and watches an issue like the mosque being built near Ground Hero and does nothing.

      Then weeks later he comes out against the will of the American people and claims Freedom of religion.

      This has nothing to do with the right to worship or build a mosque. How many mosques are alreadry in the US. This has to do with the builders of a Mosque and the Obama having the common sense and compassion to not build a mosque where it will cause pain and anguish to others.

      Just because you have the right to do something, does not make it right to do.


    8. Jayne (on the left coast) on August 14th, 2010 2:19 pm

      St. Nickolas a Greek Orthodox church was destroyed on 9/11. Nine years later they still can’t get pass all the red tape and bureaucratic nonsense. A mosque gets fast tracked.

    9. brie. on August 14th, 2010 2:44 pm

      Obama has stated in the past that 911 was our fault…how could that be. His background denotes his behavior. He shouldn’t be in a position that allows him both power and money. His misuse of both.

    10. Steve Holloway on August 14th, 2010 3:38 pm

      “Great posts” You guys nailed it on the head.

      Islam is the enemy.

      They should consider the feelings of America and not build at that location.

      Muslims killed us. Not anybody else, Muslims only.

      Because why? Answer-Their faith.

      This is a war from islam because it calls it’s believer’s to kill anybody that will not submit to it.

      If they build the mosque it will become a BEACH HEAD for further attacks and these’s places will have a mosque (BEACH HEAD) built on the death and destruction from what ever event that happens in the name of the false moon god they worship, and the muslim’s that commit THAT crime will become hero’s just like the 911 muslims.

      I say from the top of my voice NO WAY. If we keep giving in, over time you dumb xxxxx will slowly let American go to islam. You will have no rights then, only what they say you will have. Women forget being equal with man. Gay people you will be killed. Christian and Jews will be killed along with any another group that will not submit. This is not freedom if you are not a mulsim.

      Do you think in arab counties these’s groups of people have rights like the muslins, NO they don’t. Don’t be stupid. Stop this now while we can.

      I want to open a gay bar, a hooters, and pulled pork bbq place across the street from this mosque.

    12. unfriended on August 14th, 2010 5:19 pm

      I could not find an article commenting on president’s faith before. It was surprise for me to read about it. How sad something like Ground Zero, which is really big symbol for me, has been used to clarify his true believes
      We have lost our memories , apparently.

    13. Greg the Mongoose on August 14th, 2010 5:28 pm

      President Barack Hussein Obama is destroying this country! Our tax dollars are paying for that that Mosque.

      “Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf is considered controversial for his refusal to acknowledge Hamas as a terrorist organization as well as for a comment he made to “60 Minutes” in 2001 when he said that U.S. foreign policy could be considered an “accessory” to the 9/11 attacks”

      i don’t think it will go over well. somebody’s gonna get hurt.

    15. rightknight on August 14th, 2010 5:55 pm

      The ‘good and peace loving’ Muslims are having
      a terrible time weeding out, condemning, and
      eliminating the 150 million militant terrorists
      living within their ranks. It’s that 10% of hateful
      warriors that give the rest of them a bad image.
      It is ONLY 10%, right?

    16. barbreee on August 14th, 2010 6:03 pm

      So on CNN he is “not commenting on the wisdom” of the project. Then why say anything at all? Playing both sides of the fence.

      It’s obviously just too hot in the kitchen for this guy. Where’s his balls? If he’s going to shoot off his mouth, back it up.

      I saw a post that stated our amendment rights don’t include the right to not be offended. That’s true, but this building did not have to be slated to be placed so close to ground zero. That’s taking turn the other cheek to a level it can never go.

    17. Tes on August 14th, 2010 6:29 pm

      Barak Hussein Obama! Of course he has to support building of any mosque, he is a Muslin in disguise…he bowed to the Saudi King (his spiritual leader)!
      If he was a real christian, in return, he should have demanded a church/ synagogue be built in Saudi as well! The problem are these appeasing and appeasing leaders! America will gradually be conquered by these silent invaders and put under sharia’h!
      We should fight now to stop building of this mosque near ground zero and vote Hussein Obama out of office in October!

    18. brie. on August 14th, 2010 7:25 pm

      The members of the Greek Orthodox Church can not be too happy about this, no one is doing anything to help them….they should be first in line and not the Muslims…this is heart breaking for the families who lost their loved ones in 911.

      It’s obvious who Obama’s allegiance is to…and it isn’t American’s….

    19. nurturer on August 14th, 2010 11:41 pm

      Stop feeling sorry for yourselves.

      I write to the American in general. You knew what he was before he became President, based on his record


      Did you read his record?

      NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! But you voted for him anyway.

      It was all there in front of you.

      But ‘American Idol”, and ‘Desperate Hourse Wives’ were much more important.

      You get the government you deserve.


    20. Brenda in Virginia on August 15th, 2010 7:49 am

      Tes, if Obamanation were a Christian you can bet your life he wouldn’t have been nominated by the Leftist-liberal Democratic Party as a candidate for president. They wouldn’t have that. He’d then have American values, which is clearly something lacking in full.

    21. mc on August 15th, 2010 8:02 am

      Maybe President Barry should ask his muslim overlords if Rifqa Bary should also have the right to practice her religion?

      Rome and the Trojan horse have absolutely nothing to do with each other.

      This is what islam brings to American’s

      Muhammad Al-Arifi: “There is no doubt that a person whom Allah enables to sacrifice his soul, and to fight for the sake of Allah, has been graced with a great honor. The Prophet Muhammad said that the dust of battle for the sake of Allah and the smoke of Hell shall never meet in a man’s nose. [...]

      “Devotion to Jihad for the sake of Allah, and the desire to shed blood, to smash skulls, and to sever limbs for the sake of Allah and in defense of His religion, is, undoubtedly, an honor for the believer. [...]

      “Allah said that if a man fights the infidels, the infidels will be unable to prepare to fight [the Muslims]. By Allah, the infidel countries today – the U.S. and its allies – dare to fight the Muslims, to rape their women and turn them into widows, and to inflict their corruption on Islam and the Muslims on a daily basis only because they see that the Muslims do not even consider fighting the infidels and conquering their countries. [...]

      “The Koranic verses that deal with fighting the infidels and conquering their countries say that they should convert to Islam, pay the jizya poll tax, or be killed. If the Muslims had implemented this, we would not have reached the humiliation in which we find ourselves today.”

    27. M.Clifton on August 16th, 2010 3:17 pm

      If you remember, Obama canceled international day of prayer which is for Christains and I believe he said he didn’t want to offend anyone. He doesn’t mind offending the American pople with supporting a mosque at ground zero. What is wrong with you people. You knew he was a muslim, when you voted for him. I am a Christain and I will always defend My God againt all else. GOD BLESS AMERICA FOR WE ARE SURELY GOING TO NEED IT. BLESSED IS THE NATION WHOSE LORD IS GOD>

      Brenda, there are many more than “the one” who want to see the USA fall. We have many here already that pretend to be our friends but are not. In due time they will rise up against us, only not the way we think. They are using our own liberties against us and our freedoms and the laws we have in place to their advantage. When enough of them are here and they are very patient, they will take us down from inside the framework we have accross the country.

      Go for it, Obama, just keep it up! November is coming…

      Watch Nascar on Sundays, even if only their opening ceremonies. They are awsome, a prayer, the National Anthom, the jets flying over and the crowds cheering, flags flying. Gives a good example where most of us stand. I wonder how they get away with that with the way things are these days, but hey, they are just rednecks, right? LOL

    32. Dolf on August 17th, 2010 5:33 am


      a what?

    33. KING on August 21st, 2010 8:07 am

      Barack Obama is the GREAT…. Providing opportunities and making freedom to every individual and religion in the states.

      Y u people make the fight on saying Islam is not a good religion… Have u ever heard that Muslim say Christians are not good or they hate your religion.. There are bad people in all religions… even in a small family you can find different types of habits.. Please stop and stay line… We are not only Muslims and Christians in this world but many other religions… We are all Human with different faiths… We need to be one and support each other..
      SM: “Have u ever heard that Muslim say Christians are not good or they hate your religion.”

      Actually, I think they have when they decided to kill 3000 people on 9-11.

      We need to support each other, really? Well if the Muslems behind the building of the mosque near Ground Zero really wanted to support others, they would have the
      common sense and compassion to move it elsewhere. The fact that they do not is telling. The more they are rigid in the diologue, the more it tells people that this mosque is not a bridge, its a victory statue.
