House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is suggesting a coordinated effort is behind the opposition to a proposed mosque and community center near Ground
Zero, saying the whole dispute has been "ginned up" for political purposes and she supports a probe into those opponents.
Commenting publicly for the first time on the Park 51 project, Pelosi said the issue was posing a distraction and that some organized force is behind
"There is no question that there is a concerted effort to make this a political issue by some," she said in remarks posted Tuesday in a video on the
San Francisco Chronicle website. "And I join those who have called for looking into how is this opposition to the mosque being funded."
On Wednesday, Pelosi's office clarified that the speaker is not calling for a "congressional inquiry," though she still supports looking into the
funding of the mosque's opponents as well as its patrons.
"I support the statement made by the Interfaith Alliance that 'We agree with the (Anti-Defamation League) that there is a need for transparency
about who is funding the effort to build this Islamic center. At the same time, we should also ask who is funding the attacks against the construction
of the center,'" she said.Please visit the link provided for the complete story.
As much as despise this woman, I think she may be on to something here. With that being said, what really gets me, is that Pelosi doesn't mind
exposing this conspiracy (if it does exist), but stays mum on the more important and dangerous conspiracies. I guess that's just our corrupt system
at its finest. This appears to be another attempt at getting the public's mind off of what really matters, though there could be a silver lining.
If the public sees that certain groups do conspire with each other, they may subconsciously accept that conspiracies do exist by those who we would
otherwise not suspect of taking part in.
Ever since this has been an issue, I have suspected that it was a coordinated effort, though as relatively unimportant as it is, it could show others
that conspiracies are just part of the woven fabric of the elite.
Who knows, maybe her opposition will then feel compelled to expose a conspiracy to which she takes part in.
