The Deeper Narrative Emerges

Oh, you mean the imam behind the Park51 Community Center in Lower Manhattan had been on trips to the Middle East on the State Department dime as part of a program to promote religious tolerance and modernization? I think I now see the machiavellian reason to whip up emotional and xenophobic furor over this imam's construction project - because without national political figures getting involved, it wouldn't be an issue.

But by making it an issue, it really plays a part of the "Obama is a secret Muslim agent from Kenya, bowing to the King of Saudi Arabia and paying for the imam who wants to bulldoze graves of American heroes to build a victory mosque in New York."

From birthers to Republican Presidential candidates in just a few easy steps. Hey, whatever keeps us from talking about the real issues, right?

Oh, and "New Rule." If anyone out there wants to claim someone is "blaming" the United States for something bad that happened to us, they must provide transcripts or it didn't happen. And by "blame," I refuse to accept legitimate rational disagreement regarding US foreign policy or airport security proceedures as such.

Beware of old white guys. They can feel our country's demographic changes in their bones are they're heading for a full freakout.
