The Last Remaining Sensible Person in America speaks – Sarah Palin on Ground Zero Mosque

Posted on: July 19, 2010

Never Forget - Illuminate the Truth

Governor Palin, you are the only true leader remaining in this country!

For months now, the blogosphere has been seething with dismay over the 9-11 site mosque. Passionate and strong-willed  Pamela Geller,  has been a most assiduous, consistent and scholarly critic of this proposal. She stood up  to speak against the idea repeatedly, and took on a lot of criticism, during the limited coverage American media gave to this  important issue. Lest people forget, this is not just a local matter of concern to New Yorkers only!

Last week, this blog posted lengthy summary of the voices that spoke out on why this monstrosity is wrong. Timid Big Media and Cruel, Insensitive, Big Mosque -The ad the networks won’t put on air. That post fondly wished for our favorite Governor to express her thoughts on the matter. And she just did.

Coming as it did, so quick on the heels of our post, the timing  so dramatic, it’s almost tempting to take credit for eliciting Sarah’s response. But that’s neither here nor there, the point is: the last remaining sensible AND BRAVE politician in America spoke. And how eloquently!

Brief, pointed, succinct and shout-out-loud – all hallmarks of Palin-speak.

Stated like only Sarah could:

Peaceful New Yorkers, pls refute the Ground Zero mosque plan if you believe catastrophic pain caused @ Twin Towers site is too raw, too real.

Peace-seeking Muslims, pls understand, Ground Zero mosque is UNNECESSARY provocation; it stabs hearts. Pls reject it in interest of healing.

This is a pair of tweets like none other, placed like bookends (or, double-barrels, depending on your taste); at once addressing two sides of the coin; worded with the elegant, syntactical symmetry of a Kennedyism;  challenging the Mindless amongst the New Yorkers, to look into their hearts and feel the true emotions of that day of bloody catastrophe; subtly asking Muslims if they are truly ‘peace-seeking’; simply asking for honesty on both sides.

Indeed if the soulful brevity of the Twitter format were ever meant to be the bearer of a stinging rebuke, there couldn’t be many other examples such as this one.

Thank you Sarah Palin, America loves you! The world will thank you, someday.

Addedndum:

Sarah followed upon those tweets with a wonderful post at Facebook.

She called the idea of the mosque ‘an intolerable mistake on hallowed grounds’.

This is not an issue of religious tolerance but of common moral sense. To build a mosque at Ground Zero is a stab in the heart of the families of the innocent victims of those horrific attacks.

Many Americans, myself included, feel it would be an intolerable and tragic mistake to allow such a project sponsored by such an individual to go forward on such hallowed ground. This is nothing close to “religious intolerance,” it’s just common decency.

Thanks again, Sarah, for speaking up on behalf of millions of Americans. You lend your voice to the pain, consternation and the uh oh feeling in the hearts of millions of people around the world – yes including Americans who will never vote for you. You took an important moral stand, articulated the feelings of many, and stood with those who cry out. Governor, you did the right thing!!

    Home from commercial fishing grounds in Bristol Bay, and here's Piper helping slay salmon to market! A good season for wild reds on the Nushagak, Piper hopes to make enough to cover, maybe, a cell phone bill. Do you agree, as I’ve said before, we need more girls holding up fish in pics instead of holding up iPhones in selfies?!  It’s always wonderful re […]

  • It Takes a Village... to Slay a Salmon July 3, 2013
    The beauty of catching some of our Alaskan species with fins is the amount of meat harvested with each fish. Rod and reeling red salmon, or, my favorite, a big (or even not so big) halibut ensures you've got a few dinners taken care of even when feeding a bunch of people.We had a blast hauling in halibut in Homer a few days ago, despite the cold rain an […]
  • Commemorating the 150th Anniversary of Gettysburg June 30, 2013
    Today marks the beginning of the week-long ceremonies commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg. There will be a full re-enactment of the battle, discussions with panels of historians, and of course a re-reading of the Gettysburg Address. But as Lincoln affirmed when he dedicated that hallowed ground, nothing we say or do can “add or de […]

    If you missed President Obama’s State of the Union address last night, you didn’t miss much – especially if you watched any of his past four State of the Union addresses. We heard the same recycled rhetoric, and we heard his Orwellian declaration that the cornucopia of new federal programs he proposed, as well as his intention to eradicate world poverty, wou […]
  • New Year's Resolution to Keep the Faith! January 1, 2013
    Best wishes to everyone for a happy New Year! In the coming days there will be a great deal of debate about the goings-on in the political arena and the shenanigans in Washington. Constitutional commonsense conservatives must stay engaged and hold our “leaders” accountable to the voice of average everyday hard working Americans or we will very soon become an […]

    In a jaw dropping spectacle in the lobby of Trump Tower on Tuesday, the President went off on the media while ranting about his response to the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia over the weekend.

    CNN delighted in reporting the results of a recent poll question which asked: “How much do you trust the things you hear in official communications from the White House? Do you trust almost all, most of it, just some of it, or nothing at all?” If a regular viewer of CNN chose anything higher than zero, you'd assume he was a victim of the opioid epidemic […]

    On Tuesday’s Hardball, MSNBC host Chris Matthews irresponsibly dabbled in fake/false news by claiming that Republicans and those in GOP leadership haven’t spoken out against President Trump’s handling of the Charlottesville violence, including his Tuesday afternoon press conference.

    Since late January of 2012, the Washington Examiner’s Paul Bedard has once a week featured a “Mainstream Media Scream” selection in his “Washington Secrets” column.

    "Kim Jong-un blinked and backed off some of his threats.

Unfortunately for Berman, he br […]
