Bigotry isn’t liberal or conservative. It’s just bigotry. To take the actions of less than twenty radical Muslim terrorists and wrap 1.5 billion Muslims into their heinous act by denying them the ability to construct a community center two blocks from Ground Zero, is bigotry. To compare the truly heinous acts that Germany and Japan committed in WW2 as elected representatives of their citizens to the heinous acts of an insignificant unrepresentative slice of Muslims, as Newt Gingrich did, is bigotry.
And to say we need to heed the wishes of the victims of 9/11 while at the same time ignoring the wishes of 200 “9/11″ families that, in May, backed the building of the mosque, only gives credence to those that suspect that the mosque issue is more about “not in my backyard” bigotry.
