"Ground Zero Mosque"

by VorJack

This is one of the most dishonest and over-the-top political ads I’ve ever laid eyes on:


How much dishonesty can you pack into sixty seconds? Let’s count off a few:

1. “They”? “They” who? If you’re trying to blame all Muslims for the actions of Al Qaeda, you’re going to have to do a better job than that.

2. It’s not a 13 story Mosque, it’s a cultural center called the “Cordoba House“. That’s kind of an obscure reference. Cordoba, Spain, during the early middle ages was one of those rare places that Islam, Christianity and Judaism existed side by side without too much friction (as near as historians can tell). Understanding that makes it’s purpose pretty clear.

3. It’s not at Ground Zero, or looking down on Ground Zero as some have suggested. It’s three or four blocks north of the site.

… and so on.
