WBT-1110 and Tara Servatius Spreading More Hate and Lies About the Muslim Community

Today, I listened to Tara go on and on about the Mosque “AT” ground Zero. But as usual she wasn’t telling truth. There is NO Mosque at Ground Zero. And if you read below you will find out the truth about what many sick people have been trying to perpetrate against the American people. I don’t think it serves in the best interest of the community to allow someone with Tara’s extremist views to represent Charlotte. She has an agenda of hate against the poor, black people, gay people, immigrants and Muslims. Tara calls herself a journalist but often blatantly lies to promote her brand of hate. Tara’s so-called Mosque is a community center and it is NOT at the Ground Zero site as she would have you believe. Sadly enough I have made staff at WBT-1110 aware of this and they don’t seem to care. Tara Servatius and WBT-1110 are guilty of inciting hatred against people they don’t even know. Below is the truth about the location of what she calls the Mosque “AT” Ground Zero.

From the Huffington Post:

From 45 Park Place, the former Burlington Coat Factory building that will make way for the Cordoba House, it’s two blocks, around a corner, to get to the WTC site. Park Place doesn’t lie between the construction site and any mass transit stations, so you would need to go out of your way to have it offend you.

If you look up the walking directions you’ll notice that it takes a couple of minutes to walk the distance (approximately a tenth of a mile) between the two spots. Pretty much two minutes exactly when I took the trip with a shaky video camera.

When the new World Trade Center rises, you’ll be able to see it from 45 Park Place, because it’ll be by far the tallest thing around. The planned Cordoba House will be dwarfed. It certainly won’t overlook or overshadow Ground Zero.

Why is the distance between the two sites so important? Simple accuracy, for one. It’s frustrating to see so many commentators blithely disregard an obvious, physical problem with the “mosque at Ground Zero” formulation: it’s not at Ground Zero.

Clyde Haberman of the New York Times further explains the significance:

There’s that “at.” For a two-letter word, it packs quite a wallop. It has been tossed around in a manner both cavalier and disingenuous, with an intention by some to inflame passions. Nobody, regardless of political leanings, would tolerate a mosque at ground zero. “Near” is not the same, as anyone who paid attention back in the fourth grade should know.

I understand the journalist’s impulse to use the “Ground Zero Mosque” shorthand to instantly remind readers why they should care about the story. Headlines leave out qualifiers like “near” all the time for brevity’s sake. But in this case the elision is critical; leaving out the “near” clearly takes sides — against the “mosque” and against accuracy.

In addition, the building planned for 45 Park Place is a cultural center with a prayer room — not a single-purpose house of worship for Muslims, which is probably what we should reserve the word “mosque” for. As Haberman also explains, “That it may even be called a mosque is debatable. It is designed as a multi-use complex with a space set aside for prayer — no minarets, no muezzin calls to prayer blaring onto Park Place.”

The 92nd Street Y, on which the Cordoba House is explicitly modeled, has a whole host of Jewish events take place inside of it, but no one calls it a synagogue. There’s no good reason why Cordoba House should be misleadingly called a “mosque.” I’ve been guilty of using this word too, in conversation and in writing, but it’s inaccurate. Muslims already read the Quran and pray at 45 Park Place, but that does not and will not turn it into a “mosque.”

There’s one more catch for the opponents of the so-called Ground Zero mosque: by the same logical leap you can call the Cordoba Center a “mosque,” you can also call Ground Zero as it already exists a giant, open-air mosque. Muslim prayers are already taking place right on the edge of the construction site, and not for world domination. Families are going there to pray — for the souls of the dozens of innocent Muslim victims who died on September 11.

Any Questions About The Barack Obama Birth Certificate ? Please Get A Life.

Haiwaii State officials say there’s no doubt Barack Obama was born in Hawaii.

“Health Department Director Dr. Chiyome Fukino said Friday she and the registrar of vital statistics, Alvin Onaka, have personally verified that the health department holds Obama’s original birth certificate.”

“Fukino says that no state official, including Republican Gov. Linda Lingle, ever instructed that Obama’s certificate be handled differently.”

“She says state law bars release of a certified birth certificate to anyone who does not have a tangible interest.”

Some Obama critics supported by Members of the Ayran Nations and The Ku Klux Klan still claim these documents are not good enough to prove his citizenship.

“Earlier Friday, a southwest Ohio magistrate rejected a challenge to Obama’s citizenship. Judges in Seattle and Philadelphia recently dismissed similar suits.”

US Secret Service Blames Sarah Palin for Death Threats Against President Elect Obama

According to an article in the conservative paper the London Telegraph, Sarah Palin’s hateful rhetoric is being blamed for a huge increase in the number of death threats against the president elect.

“The Secret Service warned the Obama family in mid October that they had seen a dramatic increase in the number of threats against the Democratic candidate, coinciding with Mrs Palin’s attacks.”

There have been two assassination attempts broken up and various death threats, the majority being in the white supremacist community.

“Details of the spike in threats to Mr Obama come as a report last week by security and intelligence analysts Stratfor, warned that he is a high risk target for racist gunmen. It concluded: “Two plots to assassinate Obama were broken up during the campaign season, and several more remain under investigation. We would expect federal authorities to uncover many more plots to attack the president that have been hatched by white supremacist ideologues.”

Many believe this may have caused permanent damage to Sarah Palin’s reputation and may hurt any future attempts at a political run.

“Irate John McCain aides, who blame Mrs Palin for losing the election, claim Mrs Palin took it upon herself to question Mr Obama’s patriotism, before the line of attack had been cleared by Mr McCain.”

LANDSLIDE

barack-obama1
The people have spoken loud and clear. Change is coming. Barack Obama is the next president of the United States of America. Joe Biden is the next Vice President of the United States. He has won by over double the electoral votes needed and by a margin not seen since LBJ. He also won the states in the deep south that will probably change the political landscape forever for the better. Its time for all Americans to pull together. We rise and fall as one nation, together. Democrats and Republicans.

Why The Republican Party Died In 2008

casket1
There are several reasons the Republican Party died in 2008. I’ll explain several I am sure of. If you can add some insight to the reasons, please feel free to add your comments.

One of the groups that took over the Republican Party were anti-abortion religious fanatics that have turned the Republican Party into a religion instead of a conservative movement. When your base is the Christian Taliban your probably not going to get any crossover votes.

We didn’t catch or kill Osama Bin Laden and lost the war against al-Qaeda and got into a unjust war with Iraq that has taken the lives of 4100+ American soldiers and 500,000+ Iraq civilians and 7 years later there is no end in sight.

Secret prisons and POW torture at the behest of the United States Government. People imprisoned for years without being charged with any crime. Violating the Geneva Convention with permission from the Republican President of said United States.

Sending our jobs overseas. Giving tax breaks to corporations that send our jobs overseas. Giving tax breaks to the rich. Seeing the only jobs being created are at Wal-Mart and McDonalds.

Trillion Dollar deficits and the largest expansion of the government since the New Deal.

Right-Wing Nuts spewing hate and lies daily over the airwaves about Democrats that are over 50% of the population. Its pretty tough to tell lies these days when the truth is just a mouse click away.

Allowing government departments to spy on US citizens phones calls and electronic data without a search warrant and call it Homeland Security.

Attacking immigrants, gay people, minorities especially Muslims and pretending that as a group they are not important and don’t count and don’t deserve a place as Americans.

Now the Republican Party is pretty much dead and delegated to south and losing ground there. Young people just don’t join the Republican Party anymore. Hate mongers and war mongers are not cool. Killing innocent civilians and shredding the Constitution isn’t cool either. Now its time for the Republican Party to curl up and die or get rid of the pollution that has poisoned it. I believe its dead and I won’t shed a tear.
