Why does Gary Bauer hate 9/11 victims?
Surely most of them were almost twice that tall.
Liberal talking heads often suggest that opposition to the mosque at Ground Zero is just thinly veiled bigotry. They contend that the opponents of the mosque would oppose the construction of a mosque anywhere, and ask rhetorically, “How large should the mosque-free buffer zone around Ground Zero be?”
I’ve thought about that question, and here’s my suggested compromise: Back up the mosque one yard for every life that was lost at Ground Zero on 9/11. Three thousand lives lost equals three thousand yards away. If the organizers of the Ground Zero mosque would accept that compromise, the controversy would be over.
Does Gary Bauer have no one in his life who is willing or able to say the simple words, “Shut up. You are adding nothing to the national discourse. Go get a real job”?
Kyle at Right Wing Watch did the Liberal Math and determined that Gary Bauer’s Mosque Buffer Zone would be 1.7 miles around.
Somehow I have a feeling that if eight mosques were planned at equidistant points 1.8 miles around Ground Zero, Gary Bauer and the rest of them would find a new reason to run their wordholes against it, because for them, it’s not about principles, but rather about thoughtless knee-jerk bigotry and racism.
