The directors of the planned Islamic community center and mosque near Ground Zero in Manhattan have applied for grants from an agency helping the area recover from the 9/11 attacks. The request is for about $5 million.
Nothing could be more outrageous than to give taxpayer money to Muslims, some of whose adherents killed 3,000 of us nine years ago. The fact that the place is being built is an outrage. That these people are asking us to help pay for it is beyond outrageous. Talk about submitting to Islam! This is all part of their process of subjugating America to the grand crescent.
New York construction unions have said they want nothing to do with building this place. Those behind the idea say it will provide hundreds of construction jobs and 150 permanent jobs when it is completed.
Our worship of political correctness will probably mean they get the money, but we will live to regret all of this and much more. Our enemies know exactly what they are doing. We refuse to believe them and worse. Other than intrusive pat downs by TSA agents, we won't do what is necessary to defeat them.
