Republican mayor defends mosque as Democrats mostly say nothing

Mayor Bloomberg strongly defends the Ground Zero mosque while Obama, Harry Reid, Howard Dean and other Democratic ‘leaders’ remain mute or attack it. Yet again, Democratic leadership shows itself to be both gutless and complicit with the far right.

Islam did not attack the World Trade Center — Al-Qaeda did. To implicate all of Islam for the actions of a few who twisted a great religion is unfair and un-American. Today we are not at war with Islam — we are at war with Al-Qaeda and other extremists who hate freedom.

The members of our military are men and women at arms — battling for hearts and minds. And their greatest weapon in that fight is the strength of our American values, which have always inspired people around the world. But if we do not practice here at home what we preach abroad — if we do not lead by example – we undermine our soldiers. We undermine our foreign policy objectives. And we undermine our national security.

Tell me again what the Democratic Party stands for? Because Bloomberg’s speech should have been made by Democrats, lots of them.
