Leading the charge was Pam Geller from Atlas Shrugs, a libertarian/objectivist blog. From Atlas Shrugs:
Robert and I were expecting 500; imagine our wonder when close to 5,000 showed up. This is just the beginning. We are going to sue to designate the Burlington building aAnd from . There is a large piece of an airplane in that building. That is a war memorial. Instead of a mega mosque at ground zero, let's build a 911 war memorial to the victims. The current plan for a 911 museum is several floors underground, like a dungeon. And the mosque plan calls for the mosque to be on the top floor, looking down triumphantly on the burial ground of Ground Zero.El Marco, another blogger covering the event:
Pamela Geller did interviews with Al-Jazeera, AP, Chilean television, Italian television and many others; I was interviewed by Italian television and TV Asia. ABC? NBC? CBS? CNN? Even FOX? AWOL.Good question El Marco. I mean Fox News should have been a shoe in for this and they ignored it. Are they afraid of the racism card? Did they get told not to do it and if so, by whom? I encourage everyone to watch Pat Condell's video about this, here at The Right Guy Show as he paints a grim picture as to their motives. The silence is deafening. I only wish I still lived in NY so I could have joined in with this protest. Kudos for Pam for being in the fight if not leading it. The fact AP and Al Jazeera interview Geller is incredible. If Sean Hannity or Glenn Beck had any balls, they'd be down there too, whether participating or interviewing, instead of eating caviar by the pool in Lloyds Neck and Greenwich (or Westport, or may be they got invited to Rush Limbaugh's wedding. Priorities. ).
