NYC Could Finance ‘Ground Zero Mosque’

From a cheering Reuters:

Ground Zero Muslim center may get public financing

August 27, 2010

NEW YORK (Reuters) – The Muslim center planned near the site of the World Trade Center attack could qualify for tax-free financing, a spokesman for City Comptroller John Liu said on Friday, and Liu is willing to consider approving the public subsidy.

The Democratic comptroller’s spokesman, Scott Sieber, said Liu supported the project.

"If it turns out to be financially feasible and if they can demonstrate an ability to pay off the bonds and comply with the laws concerning tax-exempt financing, we’d certainly consider it," Sieber told Reuters.

Spokesmen for Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Governor David Paterson and the Islamic center and were not immediately available…

The mosque’s backers hope to raise a total of $70 million in tax-exempt debt to build the center, according to the New York Times. Tax laws allow such funding for religiously affiliated non-profits if they can prove the facility will benefit the general public and their religious activities are funded separately

Yes, this would be the cherry on the top of the whole outrage. To have New York City taxpayers put up the money for this victory mosque at Ground Zero.

And you can bet that none of the usual suspects will say a peep about the ‘separation between church and state.’

    Which just goes to show that Lenin was wrong when he said “The Capitalists will sell us the rope with which we will hang them.” Sell them the rope? Not only will we buy the rope for them but we will put up the money to build the gallows as well.

    Man alive. If this gets public funding there really will be hell to pay.

    What the @#%$!?! What is with Bloomberg anyway? He’s a Jew – one of the #&## infidel!! – he should know better -and yet he doesn’t have a @%#$ clue that the @$%koran teaches @$%@# muslims to kill non-believers wherever they find us? It’s not bad enough that not only were the towers brought down but a hole put through the heart of anyone with at least two firing synapses! All kinds of nationalities were murdered that day: Americans, Brits, Canadians, etc…..

    …..And these Bloomberg wants everyone to !#$ pay for this muslim atrocity?? Is he out of his ever-loving mind? Guiliani wouldn’t put up with this, neither would GW Bush!

    This is a fracking @%$#% nuts! The only thing the koran is good for is using when toilet paper runs out!

    When you are all tired of the drama, and perpetual abuse at the hands of our ‘public servants’ —maybe you will realize that it’s been past time to hit the REST BUTTON, and start this country again with a new Constitution and clarification of our real rights etc.

    • Right of the People says:

      I’m with you 1000%!

      We need to rewrite the constitution and put the Bill of Rights in the body so there isn’t any dispute about the freedom of speech and the right to bear arms. Get rid of the stupid amendments like the 16th and abolish the damned IRS.

      We need a lean, minimal kind of government that supplies national defense and a few other services and let the states take care of the rest.

      Term limits for all elected offices.

      Close the friggin’ borders, clean up all the damned wets and send them back from the third world sh*tholes they crawled out of. After we clean things up, we can restart legal immigration and be picky about who we let in like every other country in the world. If you don’t have a skill we need, we don’t need you!

      Get rid of all of the entitlements and other worthless programs.

      Keep all taxes at the state level and let them decide how much the feds get.

      Make this country strong again. If the libs and other factions don’t like it they can move to their promised land in Europe in live in that liberal utopia but if they leave they must abandon their US citizenship and if they want to come back they’ll have to get in line and fill out all the proper papers.

      Amend it, not rewrite it.

      #1 amendment should be a means for the people to recall elected federal officials, at ANY TIME while they are in office. Once a recall election is set, the official must be suspended from office. It can’t be too simple to do, or it will be abused. My suggestion. If 25 or 30% of voters in prior election petition it, recall election must be scheduled within 1 or 2 months.

      Imagine what that would do to the criminals in office today. Other than the stimulus, which was crammed in before anybody could even look, the rest of the disastrous communist agenda would have been stopped in its tracks. Probably only one recall election would have been necessary to reverse the criminal takeover.

      That one thing would do more than all of the other ideas combined.

    One thing for sure is New Yorkers will have to pay more taxes for more law enforcement & security if the mosque is built.

    Muslims will come from all around the world to visit the historical mosque known as the mosque resurrected from the dead one in Spain, and praise allah at the WTC.

    It will be important for Tourists to NYC to visit the 9/11 memorial to be able to tell others that although the memorial was full of scary robed muslims, there were police.

    And surely, there are more police 24/7 at Times Square now.

  8. canary says:

    Mediate: NYC mayor Bloomberg on Comedy Central video. At approx. 4 minutes into his puke Bloomberg says people complaining about mosque don’t even care, just want publicity or
    election votes. This is one big lie, aside soldiers all around the countries volunteering to fight terrorism, Americans across the country are grieving all over again. We will never forget.

    Then the bigger lie NYC mayor Bloomberg tells is that he knows since he’s the chairman of the memorial committee that the victims relatives are 100% behind the building of the mosque. I am guessing this 100% are the ones with unnamed relatives. I had to stop there.
    Bloomberg is one cold-blooded sob to go on a comedy show and laugh about 9/11, ground zero, mosques, to include porno places nearby.

    Bloomberg all happy & gay, could only do this for publicity, and it’s as tasteless as Obama cracking a joke about New Yorkers be afraid when AF1 circled ground zero with no advance warning under the guise it was for a commerical.
    New York City is in deep trouble with a mayor so callous.

    If this Ground Zero mosque goes forward, as Canary said – that area will become ‘sacred’ ground for the muslims and We Americans will lose more than just the fact – it’s been 9 years and we still have a hole in the ground at Ground Zero – we will have lost the battle against the very people who started this. And the radical terrorists who just happened to be islamic will have won.

    Do not give me the bs that this started 500 years ago (sorry, there wasn’t an America running around the World being Team America World Police that long ago), it did not start in 1948 with the ‘creation’ of the state of Israel, it did not start in 1979 – The radical terrorists who happen to be islamic – start it, continue it and blame anyone American (which makes one wonder if indeed muslims in America are American first or muslim first) – for their ills and fate hate in the World. It is not Europe, it is not America, it is not Christians, it is not Jews – It is their own ‘religion’ that incites, inclines and induces them to hate life more than they love themselves (actually Golda Meir said, “We will only have peace with the Arabs when they love their children more than they hate us.”)

    And so it goes – tragically the li(e)brals in America are using the ‘majority’ they cheated and committed fraud to obtain in the last election to shove their ‘power’ down the throats in such a disgusting and insulting way is sad to me. But the suicidal tendencies to side with a ‘religion’ – the complete hypocrisy of siding with a ‘religion’ – the most extreme ‘religion’ that is against every single tenant of the li(e)bral/progressive stance – which would slaughter them without a second thought – simply because muslims hate America (and it’s values, FREEDOM and opportunities) as much as li(e)brals do – astounds me. The li(e)brals are truly suicidal, cutting off their noses to spite their face and abusing power & the American people – and must be stopped. And so must the Ground Zero mosque.

    Pray today for the Restore America Rally in DC.

      wm4, you are correct.

      However, the thought experiment is still valid that if the smelly people got their way and all of the US was obliterated, what then? The Japanese? The Chinese? They, just like any cult that needs hate to survive, will never be satisfied. Never content.

      They tried to do that to Europe several hundred years ago and Europe beat them soundly back. Now, they are returning for act II and succeeding by being more underhanded and using European nations’ own tolerance against them. European nations need to just say no and kick them out if they don’t behave.

      Sadly, European nations have very crippling gun laws and laws that are skewed to punish their own more severely than they would an outsider. Sound familiar? That’s the goal here in the US as well from the socialists.

      Everywhere you look where is-lame is the religion of “choice” there is religious violence. Zealots who think that to get what they want, they must kill and be violent. Naturally, this is very telling of a societal defect. Religion of peace, my ass. I am an islamophobe. Keep them out, get rid of them, send them back to dirt-land where they belong.

      And to the ones who say, “But, it’s the radical few who are creating the problem; You can’t lump them all together like that.”

      Well, if the radicals are a minority, then where are those muslims who condemn them and say “STOP” and put up a wall to prevent the radicals from succeeding? Why does the West get absolutely no help from supposed “moderate” or “peaceful” muslims? Because they want the radicals to succeed so they can have all the bounty this nation has to offer while still remaining “true to their faith”. You cannot be a patriotic American and a muslim. The two are diametrically opposed. to believe in equality, fairness and justice, you have to ignore the filthy text laid forth by a demented pedophile.

      So, why do they come here? Just like the Puritans of the 1600’s it’s not about “religious freedom”; It’s about the freedom to persecute the way they want to which disagrees with the mullahs “back home” but is no less prejudiced. It’s just as bad. It’s just as divisive. And they are just as dangerous because when they see an enemy of the US, they become strong friends instead of condemning them for their hate.

      It’s so deeply rooted in their system, they cannot change.

  10. Petrus says:

    So, why hasn’t anyone done something to stop this. Seriously – form an organization, raise funds and purchase the second NYC building the muslims need to construct their mosque. I’m more than certain that the patriotic citizens of the U.S.A could gather enough funding that all the arab oil money in the world couldn’t touch us.
