Just when you think the New York Times couldn’t be more egregiously moronic…you look at today’s op-ed page devoted to trashing all those yahoos out there who object to a mosque next to Ground Zero, particularly one promoted by a guy who said that the U.S. was an “accessory” to the 9/11 attack and doesn’t know the correct answer to the question: Is Hamas a terrorist organization?
I really love this nugget by the Times’ resident harpy Maureen Dowd:
…The dispute over the Islamic center has tripped some deep national lunacy. The unbottled anger and suspicion concerning ground zero show that many Americans haven’t flushed the trauma of 9/11 out of their systems[my emphasis] — making them easy prey for fearmongers.
Gee! And other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, how did you enjoy the play?
I guess MoDo also would urge black folks to “flush out” that “unbottled anger and suspicion” over slavery and Jim Crow.
And as a feminist, she would certainly want to urge her sisters to bottle up their obsessive paranoia about men, an obsession we know she bottled long ago.
And while she’s at it, she might urge Muslims to bottle up their grotesque and totally fictitious claim that they, because of wholly imaginary instances of discrimination directed at them, are also victims of 9/11.
