Right-wing silence about Pentagon mosque betrays Ground Zero flap as phony wedge issue
Did you know that throughout these nine years since the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, Muslims have been praying at a mosque INSIDE the Pentagon?
Probably not. Hardly anybody knows about it — mainly because the likes of Newt Gingrich, Fox News and the usual gang of suspects have not kicked up a fuss about it.
For some reason, the right-wing rabble-rousers, mindless of America’s First Amendment guarantees of religious freedom, have aimed their intolerant wrath solely at plans for a mosque near Ground Zero in New York City and have paid no mind to the Pentagon mosque.
Perhaps they figure that since the Pentagon mosque is a fait accompli — and has not spawned any untoward incidents — it just won’t do as a wedge issue in an election year.
