Mosquing Tape



Okay, anybody got the over-under on how long before this is revealed to be a big joke by Trey and Matt?

My favorite thing about the bumper-sticker sloganeering hyper-patriots out in NASCAR Land is that they're always quick to appropriate and defend the sacred memory of 9/11 and its legacy in New York City when A) they weren't actually there and therefore weren't directly affected by it (losing loved ones, smelling death 24/7, living with overwhelming paranoia, etc.) and B) they generally think the city is full of godless liberal elitists and probably deserves to be sunk into the sea anyway.

We've got to stop the mosque?

You don't have anything to do with it since the only decisive action you took in the wake of 9/11 was to stop eating fucking French Fries.

Hear! Hear! I live in D.C. Some of us here in these godless precincts had to entertain the thought that day that we and our friends and loved ones might get killed.
We could smell the smoke from the Pentagon and went to funerals.

Yet I wouldn't dream of telling my friends from New York how they ought to feel about the World Trade Center or how the site ought to be treated.

That will be stuck in my head all day long.

Curses to you. Curses.

Way to rhyme "stand" with "stand"...

"They'll turn 9/11 into a mockery..."

Psst... hey, Bubba. YOU just did with your fucking song.

And I'm tired of this "it's a sacred place," "hallowed ground" bullshit. I don't understand how these yokels have managed to doublethink themselves into believing that the Bible is the first and last word on everything but that America is somehow a sacred land. This country is overrun by closet mormons.

Personally, I think they should put a mosque, a synagogue, a church, a Denny's, a homeless shelter, an abortion clinic and a giant OTB there in a circle with the entrances facing each other. Just to see what happens.

Lol, stuck in my head too. Damnit.

Also, that totally sounds like South Park... if only!

The first thing I did was get on a plane two days after the attacks and fly to North Carolina. Why? My little brother was being sent off to war, and I wanted to say goodbye to him. I knew it might have been my only chance. I'm glad I did because he came pretty damned close to not coming back quite a few times; and ended up coming back wounded once, only to be sent back immediately after he was deemed "fit." But all the same, even I don't appropriate the 9/11 tragedy or call it my own for the exact reason you stated: I wasn't there. Yes we all experienced it, but unless you were actually there, there is no comparison and these folks should stop trying to create one.

I hope Greg Gutfeld does put a gay bar across the street from the mosque center they want to build and call it "The Camel Toe."

And seeing the latest obesity stats for the country, they couldn't even commit to that.

My understanding is (a) that the proposed mosque is not ON the 16-acre site of Ground Zero but is not far from it; (b) that the mosque is not being proposed by radicals but rather by mainstream Muslims; and (c) that this country was founded on religious freedom.

Chez said...

The Gutfeld thing is actually really clever. If he's doing it to legitimately test their tolerance and make a very nesessary point, then it's brilliant. If he's just trying to piss off a bunch of Muslims, it's silly.

There are at least 30 mosque prayer centers in New York. Why put another one there?

Ethnic Redneck said...

In 10 years will anyone even give a shit about this? Except for the guy who gets pissed off that no one agrees with his cowardly-ass opinions and assumes that his being ignored justifies his rebellion against the government.

I'm disappointed that it wasn't done to the music of Stop the Rock :(

Here's a few facts: there are churches within two blocks of ground zero. Also two strip joints. Also within a block and a half of the proposed Islamic outreach center that includes a mosque, there are one or two gay bars (I've read both numbers being reported). As one blogger pointed out, these Muslims have chosen to put their building in downtown New York City, a place where, on any given corner you have a good chance to see a gay man walking his dog while eating pork.
