Nancy Pelosi’s America has always borne only a passing resemblance to the America that the rest of us know and love, but the Speaker of the House has at last demonstrated just how out of touch she really is with the rest of the nation’s citizens. Her now infamous comments that appeared on the San Francisco Chronicle‘s website on Tuesday regarding the Ground Zero mosque provoked wholly justified howls of outrage. “There is no question that there is a concerted effort to make this a political issue by some,” Pelosi said. “And I join those who have called for looking into how…this opposition to the mosque [is] being funded.” If Democrats wonder why they are in trouble this coming election season, they need look no farther than those two sentences. The Speaker revealed – once again – the ruling party’s disdain for public opinion and their insulting presumption that those with differing opinions must be ignorant rubes who have been manipulated by sinister forces.
Over sixty per cent of Americans are opposed to the construction of the Ground Zero mosque. This is for one very simple reason: it’s a plan to build an edifice that honors a religion that inspired zealots to destroy an American landmark and, more importantly, kill thousands of Americans. Constructing such a monument within eyesight of that tragic, shattering act of terror is deeply insulting. There is no need to fund opposition — how can anyone, much less the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, fail to understand that? Americans don’t need to be convinced that building a mega-mosque two blocks from Ground Zero is an offensive, insulting and provocative act. The facts speak for themselves.
