Mosque lady builds bridges by calling 70% of U.S. bigots

Font Size:

Daisy Khan is one of the brainiacs behind the Ground Zero Mosque the Burlington Landing-Gear Receptacle That Place in Lower Manhattan Everybody Is Talking About. She also has perhaps the most confusingly evocative name ever. This morning, she appeared on This Week with Christiane Amanpour.

Displaying the cool impartiality and journalistic rigor that are making viewers everywhere call for the return of Jake Tapper, Amanpour asked Khan if America is Islamophobic:

“This is like a metastasized anti-Semitism, that’s what we feel right now,” Khan said. “It’s not even Islamophobia, it’s beyond Islamophobia; it’s hate of Muslims. And we are deeply concerned.”

Second most wrathful Khan ever? Good job staying on message, Daisy. “We can’t create a dialog and exchange ideas and nurture mutual respect until you bigots shut up!!” I don’t particularly like Harry Reid and Howard Dean, but I’d stop well short of calling them Muslim-haters.

One reason liberals and, um, “moderate” Muslims like Daisy Khan make such wonderful bedfellows is their unfailing instinct for declaring themselves victims. 9/11 families? What 9/11 families? The real victims here are people like Daisy. How dare you question her judgment? How dare you criticize her plans? Isn’t this America??

P.S. Daisy’s almost as good at this public-relations stuff as her Twitter guy.

P.P.S. Conniving Miss Daisy? Recently she met with some 9/11 survivors, who recall: “They kept talking about wanting to build bridges, but they weren’t answering any questions.”
