Gina Loudon Somehow Manages to Be Even More Obnoxious

Just a couple weeks after comparing gay marriage to marrying animals, Gina Loudon has somehow managed to outdo even her own amazing propensity for obnoxiousness. FiredUp Missouri relates Loudon's recent rantings claiming that people who want to build an Islamic Community Center blocks away from Ground Zero are similar to Nazis. Yes, Nazis:
The land surrounding Ground Zero is a war memorial. The proposal of an Islamic mosque there is synonymous with a Nazi war memorial in downtown London. How would the world react to that proposal? Wouldn’t Western Europe just about leap off the map if that were proposed? Where is the outrage from our European “friends?”
She goes on to say that the only way Muslims can really prove that they are peaceful is to give up their freedom of religion:
If the Muslim world continues to fight for this mosque to be built at Ground Zero, they are not interested in peace, or religious dialogue. They are interested in war. They are using the Sharia law concept of lying in the best interest of Allah, and they will be further from the hearts of America than ever before.
This is a classic tactic of the Right: to try to tie all Muslims, or at least all Muslims that don't automatically go along with their right-wing ideology, to terrorists. Loudon is suggesting that the most peaceful, family-oriented, generous, loving Muslim is still "for war" if that person disagrees with Loudon about Park 51. Absolutely ridiculous.

Loudon's original post also linked directly to the truly despicable www.thereligionofpeace.com, a webiste with the tagline: "Islam: Making a True Difference in the World - One Body at a Time." The website says the following about Islam:
And so, our mission evolved from simply memorializing the victims of Islamic terror to trying to educate the open-minded on how Islam is so tragically different from other religion, including its incompatibility with secularism and Western liberal values.
Straight, unadulterated, unapologetic bigotry. That's all it is.


  1. What is it about the Loudons, the Cheneys and the Santorums who know so much about bestiality?

    I'm glad you referred to the area as Park 51. As most thinking people know, this is not a mosque but a recreational center with a prayer room. It's sort of like the one located at the Pentagon and in corporate headquarters across America.

    These people will say and do anything at all to foment their own hatred of Muslims or anyone else on their radar.

  2. I think Bloomberg said it best "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."
