Disturbing comment on Ground Zero Mosque article also makes no sense

First of all, the comment was anonymous. Most of them are when they are incoherent and/or don’t want to be identified with what they said. Incognito comments are a necessary evil in order to hear what readers want to say, but if what you have to say is offensive in any way, you should have the guts to put your name on it. Otherwise, you’re just a coward.

Anonymous calls himself a “Kansas Patriot, and claims to have won first place in some essay contest in which there were 2,200 participants. I can only imagine what the other 2,199 must be like. If this sounds like a put-down, it is. And you’ll see in the following.

Our essayist calls New York Mayor Bloomberg a “Napoleon,” indicating monetary reward is expected by this man who is a millionaire many times over. He is right when he describes the planned Muslim temple as a “sharia-hugging mosque.” Sharia Law comes from their God, Allah, and is devoutly observed in Islam.

For those of you who are interested, you can read an article on why the sharia is bad for all societies. You might also want to read another article by that gives a different view. What ever your preference, this is a religion that has been around for years and apparently plans to stay around.

It’s hard to tell if our Kansas Patriot has read either of the above but there is some insight into his take on this when he comments: “…how high the collective temperature has now risen in the hearts of true American patriots – many of whom are now willing to die for America right here in America if they get pushed completely over the line by traitors.” That’s heavy, and I assume liberals are the “traitors.”

He prattles on about Obama “destined to become a black-slavery avenger,” and hopes “Mayor Bloomberg, dressed as Napoleon, will thoroughly enjoy his mosquerade party.” The latter is relatively clever for someone who rants on endlessly without ever making a real point.

Whatever anonymous-Kansas patriot-essayist is trying to say—and there are many today trying to make their point, whatever it is, in this way—it’s going way over the heads of the real thinkers.
