"There is no question there is a concerted effort to make this a political issue by some. And I join those who have called for looking into how is this opposition to the mosque being funded," she said. "How is this being ginned up that here we are talking about Treasure Island, something we've been working on for decades, something of great interest to our community as we go forward to an election about the future of our country and two of the first three questions are about a zoning issue in New York City." (h/t Kristinn) Calls to investigate the funding for those proposing the $100 million "Cordoba House" have fallen on deaf ears, though, as New York's Mayor Mike Bloomberg has described such an investigation as "un-American." Ms. Pelosi called the Ground Zero mosque an "urban development decision" for New Yorkers to work through. Her remarks happened on the heels of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Nevada Democrat, parting ways with President Barack Obama on the issue. Mr. Reid suggested the mosque should be built somewhere else.

I used that clip in one of my threads about Reid-oops. Harry Reid talks about anchor babies.

What I was asking, is Piglosi going to investigate Reid since he spoke out against the mosque.

We already know where some of the funding has come from, the federal government. They are paying for the imam to travel through the mideast looking for donors to the project.

Yep, might just as well investigate 80% of the country piglosi, that is who is against the building of the mosque there. She is the devil incarnate, or at least a low level demon.

I'm pretty sure more than 80% of the country understands the first amendment and are able to understand that as Americans, they have the freedom to build a mosque there if they so please.

Oh, or we can just break the first amendment and give in to xenophobic / racist / bigots that don't want it.

And furthermore, it is a community center with basketball, swimming, a food court, etc.
Calling it a mosque is like calling Circus-Circus in Vegas a cathedral because it has a wedding chapel.

Anyone who votes based on this issue is so beyond ignorant there is no hope for them.

That being said, she's not entirely wrong about this being politicized to the max. And they LIE. Shocking, I know...politicians lying.

I have tons of examples if anyone wants to see them. Tons. Here's are a couple.

See, you continue to push the agenda provided to you. Let me explain this one MORE TIME.

We know ALL about the first amendment.



Funny how the progressives bring it up when they want to push an agenda, just not when someone wants to say a prayer at a football game or on the Supreme Court steps or blah blah blah.

Yes, they are Constitutionally ALLOWED to build the church, but amazingly enough, it MAY NOT be the wisest of decisions.

Hmmmm, who said THAT?

Oh well, keep falling for the divide and conquer crap.

Again, is piglosi going to investigate reid now that he has come out against the mosque?

No she just wants to investigate the majority of Americans that oppose the placement of the mosque.

I wonder where all the new (ground-zero mosque defending) constitutionalists will be on this one?

Why is it a big thing?

Do you think the American Muslims that are going to go to the Islamic center are the same type of people that acted on 9/11?


just not when someone wants to say a prayer at a football game or on the Supreme Court steps or blah blah blah.


I'm pretty sure the constitution mentioned something about the separation of church and state.


it MAY NOT be the wisest of decisions.


Why? Are they terrorists? Are they being suppressed because of the hatred of someone that acted in the name of religion but that they don't even have any connection to? Really.


keep falling for the divide and conquer crap.


You're the one dividing America, you're the one who is denying the first amendment to Americans based on their colour and on their religion. A religion did not attack New York on that day, extremist terrorists did.

Stop equating extremist terrorists with all Muslims and Middle Eastern people who just want to build a community center that you will not even see from ground zero.



Boy, that community center that has a prayer center on the top two floors sure looks nefarious.

You should probably research more on where and why mosques are built. Then MAYBE you will understand that opposition is not limited to "racists and bigots"- it extends to those of us who understand the true motive of its placement. Thanks.

For the same reason any religious building is built. Quit trying to act like you're being invaded by extremist terrorists.

But really, what's this hidden motive that I have not understood...?

Seeing as this topic is about what Pelosi and more specifically what she said about the political aspects of the issue, if you want details about the issue itself, along with the political aspects, there's a pretty decent summary in this thread: The War for Your Mind: "Ground Zero Mosque", a work in progress.

More politics...eminent domain for this dude...

The hidden motive is that someone is trying to provoke a confrontation so that the government can further invade whatever freedoms we have left.

See Pelosi.

Even more disturbing is that if we were a British style parliamentary state she would automatically become the prime minister due to her being the head of the majority party of the lower legislative house

I'm pretty sure there was quite a conflict and confrontation before Pelosi /any politician got involved...

Or are you saying they are "provoking" confrontation because Obama and gang said that he supports the first amendment?
