NYC Mayor Bloomberg Calls 60% in US and 9-11 Families Un-American, Again


Why is it that every one has to be tolerant except Liberals and Muslims?

How many times will NYC Mayor call 60% of Americans, including families who lost loved ones on September 11, 2001 UN-AMERICAN? There are probably more NY’ers than not who wish Bloombergwas “un”employed these days. Simply amazing that these LEFTist tool politicians call others Un-American when they are just expressing their First Amendment rights of Freedom of Speech. I guess we can now understand why Leftists like Bloomberg are in lockstep with the ridged, without compassion, unbending and unrelenting planners of the Ground Zero mosque, they have all too much in common. But Bloomberg says, the hell with the people and what they say … build it no matter what. What tolerance and compassion for the families and victims of 9-11.


Pic Hat Tip: Weasel Zippers

In a rousing address before a predominantly Muslim audience Tuesday night, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg reaffirmed his commitment to the controversial Islamic cultural center near the former site of the World Trade Center.

Bloomberg, who hosted the annual Ramadan Iftar dinner at his official Gracie Mansion residence, did not back away from his position as the most vocal and public defender of the so-called “Ground Zero mosque.” If anything, he couched his defense of the project in even deeper moral and political terms, calling the Cordoba House a telling illustration of intrinsic American principles and a valuable tool in the war on terror.

From Bloomberg’s prepared remarks:

But if we say that a mosque and community center should not be built near the perimeter of the World Trade Center site, we would compromise our commitment to fighting terror with freedom.

We would undercut the values and principles that so many heroes died protecting. We would feed the false impressions that some Americans have about Muslims. We would send a signal around the world that Muslim Americans may be equal in the eyes of the law, but separate in the eyes of their countrymen. And we would hand a valuable propaganda tool to terrorist recruiters, who spread the fallacy that America is at war with Islam.
Islam did not attack the World Trade Center — Al-Qaeda did. To implicate all of Islam for the actions of a few who twisted a great religion is unfair and un-American. Today we are not at war with Islam — we are at war with Al-Qaeda and other extremists who hate freedom.

Much more from No Mosque at Ground Zero.

It is amazing how NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg could bastardize the “Ground Zero” opposition less than 9 years after 9-11. Let’s just say Bloomberg’s words will ring hollow at any 9-11 anniversary. Actually, he need not show up at all.

Mr Bloomberg, yes  “we are at war with Al-Qaeda and other extremists who hate freedom,” and those who would take away our civil liberties like freedom of speech, expression and right to civil protest. What side are the Ground Zero mosque planners on this issue? Heck, what side are you?

      Michael Bloomberg’s financial interests are Muslim backed. There are 100 mosques in NYC. A few Muslims that live near ground Zero does not show a need for such a huge 911 victory mosque.
      This mosque was rubber stamped by the Mayor against the peoples will. Next election the will of the people will over come the $$$ this time.

      I don’t know what happened to Bloomberg but since he bought himself another term he has changed and isn’t a friend of the people of New York. We have had many great mayors in New York and they always loved the city. Mayor Koch was one – even though some of his politics were different from mine, he was a true New Yorker. Mayor Guiliani (the country’s mayor) was also a true blue New Yorker and he did great things for the city. And, of course, everyone knows how he handled the chaos after 9-ll and when the Saudis offered 10 million dollars to the city he told them to keep it – he didn’t want money that was coming from terrorists – and he was right. This ground zero mosque is not only causing many problems and heartache for so many, the backers are getting nastier by the minute. Doesn’t sound like peace loving actions to me. But again, the biggest disappointment is Bloomberg.

    3. Paula on August 25th, 2010 4:03 pm

      The backers are not only getting nastier and defensive but this Daisy Khan is one arrogant woman. The way they criticize America is unbelievable and I don’t know how they can live a good life here and feel that way. They are two-faced parasites!!!

    4. brie. on August 25th, 2010 6:59 pm

      He said” the hell with the people and what they say….build it no matter what.”

      I guess the Muslims feel get victory and power building a mosque and looking over the site where they bombed 3000 people. Husbands, wives, children, single folks, grandpa’s and grandma’s, relatives, so, so many. And they have to live with their grief the rest of their lives.

    5. Paula on August 25th, 2010 10:27 pm

      Yes Brie, it’s disgraceful and so is Bloomberg. Shame on him. I don’t know anyone who wasn’t affected by 9-11 and “everyone” knows someone who died on that day. I am afraid that much trouble will come about because you just can’t negate people that way and think they will go along like lambs.

      Mayor Bloomberg is not from New York, but from Boston. He is a flaming leftist.

      this boy needs that head rag around his scrawny

    8. Paula on August 26th, 2010 9:33 am

      If Mayor Mike has ambitions beyond mayor of NYC I think he can kiss them goodbye. How dare he lecture New Yorkers on tolerance – New York is probably the most tolerant in the world. He shows more compassion and understanding to those that prove they are enemies of the city and the country. As mayor he could have taken control of this situation but instead he has let it become a hotbed of controversy.

    9. Greg the Mongoose on August 26th, 2010 7:14 pm

      A Sharia Victory mosque. A Blooming idiot! Just because your rich does not mean your right. Another Madoff.

    10. brie. on August 26th, 2010 8:02 pm

      At first Bloomberg said he was going to negotiate with the Muslims to find another location. Now he says “the hell with the people”. Also, at first, the contractors said they could look for another location because there is other land available, now they are saying no they can’t. Guess who is behind all of this, our number one enemy, Obama.

    11. NGBoston on August 26th, 2010 8:07 pm

      #6-Bloomberg is an Idiot! I can name several other politicians out of this bright blue State that are also a huge embarrassment…but we won’t go O/T

      And, how are the Protestors of the 9/11 Mosque going to be labeled now that the Cabbie has been stabbed? Just watch the left keep going!
      Within minutes of the news that a Muslim cabbie was slashed and stabbed in New York, liberal blogs jumped to the conclusion that this was a “hate crime” inspired by right-wing Islamophobes and their heated rhetoric against the 9/11 mosque.

      My favorite headline is from loony Lefty prof/pundit Juan Cole: Republican National Committee Slashes New York Muslim Cabbie


      Michael Enright of Brewster, New York, who was booked on charges of attempted murder and assault with a weapon as a hate crime, is listed on Facebook as an employee of the New York City-based Intersections International, a “global initiative dedicated to promoting justice, reconciliation and peace across lines of faith, culture, ideology, race, class, national borders and other boundaries that divide humanity.” And a few weeks ago, they announced their support for — you guessed it — the Cordoba House, better known to many as the “Ground Zero Mosque.”

      So while Enright is involved in liberal projects that support the 9/11 mosque, his Muslim victim—a longtime immigrant to America who’s raised his family here—opposes putting a mosque on this sacred ground.

      It turns out that the REAL story is that Enright is a guy with a drinking problem who’s had some rowdy run-ins with the cops in the past. “Police said the mosque was never mentioned during the attack,” the NYPost reported.

      So why isn’t yesterday’s headline–“Opposing the mosque means your support violence against Muslims!” being replaced by “Mosque supporters will kill moderates who oppose them?”

      Because both are idiotic. Even if some idiot did something stupid opposing the mosque, that fact wouldn’t prove anything about the project or its opponents as a whole. Just like Enright proves nothing about mosque supporters.

      The difference is that the media that would never print the second lie is STILL trying to “report” the first one today.

      More BS from the LEFT, and Bloomberg makes a visit today with the Cabdriver. Oh, Michael- you make me want to puke.

      Wow! After following some “news” links from MSN I found myself on huffpo and wow is all I can say. Them posters over there have got some real issues.

      This is not a freedom of religion issue, this is a people of a nation deciding an issue by majority.

      “Boom”berg should decide which side he is on. Remmember, we are all infidels whether we are together or opposed.

    14. Dolf on August 27th, 2010 8:40 am

      most Muslims are not really excited about this whole thing as well (esp. abroad)

    15. Scott on August 27th, 2010 9:35 am

      Yeah since you know most Muslims?!? LOL!

      Considering this is being built by the leader of Hamas; I doubt your “claim.”

      This is a way to funnel terrorists to our country pure and simple but Bloomberg and the rest of the libtard nut jobs out there are getting a huge kick back.

      BTW…I hear more elderly people are being left to die in that great social healthcare system that you claim is so great…LOL

    16. Dolf on August 31st, 2010 10:07 am

      no scott, because we have the same issues here with the Islamic extremists as you overthere.

      you claim that the leader of Hams is funding that Mosque?


      the other claim that the dems are trying to funnel terrorists in.
      Somehow I doubt that they (terrorists) check the political view before they attack.

      and didn’t you get the memo……old ppl die…in fact all ppl tend to die some day.
