Grover Norquist, longtime enabler of Islamic supremacists, is at it again — warning Republicans to stay away from the issue of the Islamic supremacist mega-mosque at Ground Zero, claiming that it will hurt them in November despite the fact that polls show that 70% of Americans oppose the mosque.
“Some Republican figures urge candidates not to focus on NYC mosque issue,” by Karen Tumulty in the Washington Post, August 18 (thanks to Bill):
“The support for criticizing a mosque is half a mile wide and an inch deep,” conservative activist Grover Norquist warned. “And at the end of the process, the only people who will remember it are the people who feel threatened by this — not just Muslims, but Sikhs, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists and Mormons.”
Framing an issue that has the support of 70% of Americans as a losing issue is what makes Grover Norquist the strategic genius he is reputed to be, I guess.
