Speaker Nancy Pelosi was interviewed yesterday on KCBS radio in San Francisco, while New York Governor David Paterson is trying to negotiate a compromise and she wants the opposition to the Ground Zero Mosque investigated.

Here’s the transcript via The Washington Times:

There is no question there is a concerted effort to make this a political issue by some. And I join those who have called for looking into how is this opposition to the mosque being funded.  How is this being ginned up that here we are talking about Treasure Island, something we’ve been working on for decades, something of great interest to our community as we go forward to an election about the future of our country and two of the first three questions are about a zoning issue in New York City.

Yes, let’s investigate the funding of the opposition, but not consider where the Park 51 developers may be getting their money.  Ah heck, let’s just but a damper on the First Amendment a little and issue subpoenas to appear before some Congressional committee.  That would be helpful for the debate.  She doesn’t want Washington involved in making the decision about the mosque, but is ok with involving Washington in investigating the opposition.

That is messed up, but I’ve learned not to expect any differently she’s always been a part of the fringe.

  1. The blogosphere is hyperactive with Ground Zero Mosque posts. It’s impossible for one person to keep up with them (I’ve tried!). If you use Google Blog Search for ‘Ground Zero Mosque’ set to the last hour, they come up faster than you can comment on them.

    Most of the posts seem to be against the Victory Mosque, but many of these bloggers are working on gut feel only, and are obviously not Islamically Aware, being confused about the true nature of Islam and regarding it as just another religion.

    If we counterjihadists all spent an hour a day commenting on recent posts and pointing the bloggers in the right direction, then we could do a great educational job. You can find links to resources HERE
