It happened on the way to Ground Zero

Watch the video, it is astonishing.

Warning: Social cohesion it is not. But don’t worry, no ‘black Muslim Puerto Rican types’ were physically hurt in the making of this video.

This is a take of it from gawker.com :

Both supporters and opponents of the “Ground Zero” “Mosque”—a proposed community center—held rallies in lower Manhattan today. Can you guess which side started chanting “no mosque here” at a black guy wandering through the crowd?

While you spent your Sunday trying to teach your cat to go to the bathroom on a human toilet, a group of brave, freedom-loving Americans gathered in New York City to express their extreme disapproval with the Park 51 project, an al-Qaeda plot to build a community center featuring a swimming pool and auditorium on the very site where a Burlington Coat Factory once stood.

As you can see in the video above, at some point during the rally, a dark-skinned man wearing an Under Armor skullcap and what looks like a necklace with a Puerto Rican flag walked through the anti-”Mosque” crowd. The crowd, astutely recognizing that he was on his way to build the mosque, began to chant “NO MOSQUE HERE” at him. In the video, someone says, “run away, coward.” The man turns around, perturbed. “Y’all motherfuckers don’t know my opinion about shit,” he says. Au contraire, my friend: You are a black man wearing a skullcap, after all! You are definitely a pro-Mosque, anti-freedom Jihadist! Why, aren’t you, in fact… Osama Bin Laden??

No, actually, according to the guy who uploaded the video to YouTube, the skullcap-wearing gentleman’s name is Kenny and he’s “a Union carpenter who works at Ground Zero.” Kenny is also—as he points out several times in the video—not a Muslim. (No word on whether or not he voted for Obama, as one of the very reasonable and intelligent-sounding anti-”Mosque” protestors speculates.) But I’ll bet you Kenny has been totally convinced about the truth of the Burlington Coat Factory Desecration Community Center. Who wouldn’t be?

    Here we go again with more ignorance from abroad.

    Try perusing the FBI hate crime statistics and look at the racial groupings of those who allegedly commit hate crimes against Muslims. In most years Blacks are over represented in that number.

    Many of the African immigrants come from countries like Nigeria where strife between Muslims and Christians is quite common.

    Now Beakerkin is here to tell us that the baying mob outside the GZM site which, as we can see easily descends into a race hate lynch mob, is actually a demonstration against African American crime.

    This is getting better and better!

    Yakoub,

    Sadly, they probably are.

    And here’s an AOR/Country&Western treatment from the ‘Stop the Ground Zero Mosque’ movement. Very rousing, anthemic stuff I’m sure you’ll agree:

    About the anthem:

    “I assert that Mr. Martin’s song is so ridiculous, so over the top, so horribly sung and amateurishly edited, that by the end, everyone on his side of the spectrum either looks like an idiot or is forced to reassess his position”

    http://www.aolnews.com/weird-news/article/protest-song-decries-mosque-at-ground-zero-and-sucks/19604174

    I agree. As far as I’m concerned, it’s a pro GZM anthem.

    Yeah and it’s so fucking awful, the pro GZM deserve it. The ‘anthem’ that is.

    You know zero about the area.

    This is only round one. No doubt it is legal to build a Mosque right next to the site of the greatest war crime committed against the American people. Of course the subject of foreign funded tax exempt religious structures and funny money in our Universities will be discussed in congress. Expect swift changes and you can thank the intransigence of the backers of this project for alerting Americans to a problem that needs to be solved.
