    ... that would be HER bigotry, in her comment opposing the mosque. Get this:

    During my lifetime, a number of racial and ethnic slurs have been effectively banned from our national vocabulary -- not because our free speech has been limited, but because we recognize that these words are deeply offensive to our fellow citizens and we decide to avoid them.

    ...so to her, a Muslim place of worship is comparable to someone using racial/ethnic slurs.

    but better yet:

    The proposed site of Park51, an Islamic cultural center that will include a mosque, is especially contentious because it goes to the heart of who is to blame for the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

    ...which is to say, innocent Muslims are at the heart of who is to blame.

    She blathers on here:

    They tore down all the churches within 5 blocks of the Murrah Bldg...so I don't know what the big deal is.

    In a forgotten ironic twist, after the Oklahoma rightwing terrorism, the Clinton administration wanted to take a closer look at rightwing militias and the rest of that crowd that McVeigh had been associated with.

    The Right threw an epic fit. They were beside themselves that anyone would broadbrush an entire group for the crimes of a few.
