Gutfeld's Stunt: A Ground Zero Gay Bar

I see that Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty has weighed in yet again with his bigotry.

From Politico’s Ben Smith: Islam and 2012

Pawlenty’s spokesman Bruce Gordon said there’s “no misunderstanding” over the governor’s comments, which suggested building a mosque near the site of the World Trade Center attacks was unpatriotic.

The governor’s message is clear: New York is a big place. Find a different location for the mosque,” Gordon said in an email

Pawlenty told Scott Conroy last week that he opposes the planned Islamic center near Ground Zero because, “We shouldn’t have images or activities that degrade or disrespect that in any way.”


One thing that is a bit unexpected is the sheer venom that constitutes the comments section. Politico readers are usually better than the crap they’re polluting this story’s comments with.
