Michael Bloomberg: Unamerican to Investigate Funding of Ground Zero Mosque

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 8:09 pm



When the amazing is predictable:

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg says it would be un-American to investigate a mosque that is planned for construction near where the World Trade Center once stood.

I’m listening hard for his condemnation of Nancy Pelosi’s call to investigate the mosque’s opponents, but I can’t hear it over all these damned crickets.

Thanks to Dana.

  1. Muslims have a First Amendment right to build a megamosque near Ground Zero, and they also have a First Amendment right not to be criticized or questioned for it. Didn’t you get the memo?

  2. Nothing to say, as I got the memo.

  3. Under the Obama Department of Social Justice, people if certain undetermined ethnic origins and religious affiliations have been exempted from screening for raising money for or receiving money from organizations sponsoring man-caused disasters. This is just understood. There are no memos. Didn’t you get the memo?

  4. Ditto on my memo. Do I get double-plus-good points on both allusions.

  6. I have no response but to simply shake my head in amazement at how racist and islamophobic you all are.

  7. JD:

    But it’s all because we have the bitter, clingy sweat causing us to lose the grip on our guns despite our new-found wealth from the Koch brothers and that crying guy.

    I denounce myself. Racists.

  8. this is both unexpected and unprecedented……

    in other news, sales of firearms and ammunition continue to be the only bright spot in an otherwise bleak economic news cycle.

    to combat this, Ear Leader and his regime have banned the resale of obsolete US weapons from the Republic of South Korea they had previously approved.

  9. Where did all of this talk about the Koch brothers come from? Trolls are starting to spit that out, and Ag80 is obviously mocking them. Are they some rich guys that should be paying me?

  10. Unamerican to investigate the funding of the GZM? Like all of those untraceable donations via credit cards to the one?

  11. JD – Koch Brothers finding conservative causes was in a New Yorker(?) hit piece the left is orgasming over.

  12. daley – Their denials are proof of the evil conspiracy. But Soros is not.

  13. JD – Koch Bros. should be paying me, not you. Billionaire oil family from Kansas I believe. Been around a long time.

  14. They could pay both of us, no? I am still waiting for my check for opposing the Ground Zero not-Mosque.

  15. in Lefties think….. its unamerican to investigate anything that opposes or exposes their marxist /communist/terrorist/socialist/elitist taxing thieves agenda.

  16. Well, call me un-American.

    I suspect it’s being funded by the Saudis, and if it was up to me, it would be illegal for the Saudis to construct temples or religious schools in the United States.

    I’d like to know where the dough is coming from.

  17. “un-American to investigate”

    — Henry Waxman is having a good chuckle over that one.

  18. Where did all of this talk about the Koch brothers come from?

    If you have the stomach for it, you can peruse the hack piece at TNY. Typical leftist cant, replete with shock and outrage over a private individual actually funding opposing viewpoints in the public arena. No mention of the individual who made billions betting against the western world’s currency, of course.

  19. Could Michael Bloomberg make himself anymore ridiculous? The Mayor of NY City just put himself in the same category of idiot as Baghdad Bob.

    That statement alone is clear proof that Bloomberg lacks sufficient common sense to hold public office, any public office. Either that or he’s a secret convert to Islamic jihad.

    Talk about un-American, can anyone imagine Rudy Giuliani ever saying anything remotely similar to that?

  20. The Sweet Little Mayor, it has been alleged, has substantial financial interests in the Middle East. Of which, he is trying to expand substantially. Is this not like, conflict of interest, or something. Prosecutable?

  21. When it comes to the GZM, Mayor Bloomberg wants us to take it on faith that everything is on the up-and-up.

    Trust but verify, Mr. Mayor.

  22. Bloomberg may be protecting his investments:

    Paralleling Mayor Bloomberg’s veiled insults towards those acutely aware of the historical Islamic conquest of non-Muslim lands by their building of mosques on top of or dominating a conquered people’s holy sites, is the concurrent Bloomberg LLC’s expansion of its Dubai financial center into a regional hub for the UAE.

    Founded in 1981 by Michael Bloomberg, who privately owns 85% of the limited liability corporation, Bloomberg LLC is a dominant player in global financial software, data gathering and news, commanding one third of its market niche estimated at $16 billion dollars.

    Bloomberg LLC sells its terminals from seven regional hubs: London, Sao Paolo, New York, San Francisco, Tokyo, Hong Kong and Sydney but the Dubai regional center will allow Bloomberg access to Islamic sharia based banking and monetary systems by developing a sharia compliant finance portal.

    According to the regional head of Bloomberg LLC’s Middle East and South Asia centers, Max Linnington, “The region for us has seen explosive growth. For example, last year in the UAE, we grew our core business by 61 per cent. And already this year, we exceeded what we achieved in all of last year in the UAE. So we are selling a lot of Bloomberg terminals, basically.”

    Linnington went on to add, “Particularly since the meltdown of the western capitalist system, there has been an increasingly large focus on the virtues of Islamic finance. Today, there is no one single provider of information that caters to the Islamic finance market. So by Bloomberg being here, we are in the process of building out an Islamic finance product. We are very confident that we can build a product that meets the needs of the market right now.”

    Bloomberg LLC has news bureaus throughout the Gulf Corporation Counsel (GCC) and is opening offices in Saudi Arabia and Qatar. Its new Dubai regional hub will cover financial news, analysis and data gathering throughout the Middle East and extend Eastwards across Afghanistan, Pakistan, the Indian subcontinent and Nepal.

    By siding with Islamic expansionism through mosque building, New York Mayor, Michael Bloomberg’s insulting tirade against the Cordoba mosque’s detractors, calls into question his ethics in catering financially to an avowed enemy of Western civilization and democratic principles.
