I think I can definitively state President Obama is not a muslin. Additionally, your insistence that he is a muslin is not helping your credibility. How many people think Obama is a muslin? Quite a few, apparently.
In all seriousness, I think “muslim” is somehow a proxy for race. It’s part and parcel of Obama being a black other, a foreigner, not a “real American.”
The name “Ground Zero Mosque” certainly evokes a lot of emotion. Better than saying “Mosque and community center close to the site of the former Twin Towers.” How far does holy ground extend, anyway? And are porn shops and strip joints permitted? In any event, talking about how muslins should be sensitive to the feelings of “Americans” strikes me as more than a little ridiculous. Undoubtedly Muslims were among the 9/11 victims. Maybe even Muslims who were Americans. Maybe even a few muslins.
Sensitivity to bigotry. It’s the American way.
Speaking of “real Americans,” how exactly are we going to prove citizenship if birthright citizenship is repealed? The passport is issued after another proof of citizenship has been provided. For people born in the United States, that proof is often a birth certificate. Maybe everybody will be required to obtain a certificate of citizenship. But will birthright citizenship have a grandfather clause? Will citizenship be contested based on alleged non-citizen status of parents? What if one of your parents is a muslin? Will DNA tests be required for alleged citizens who claim citizen fathers? And is this just a move towards Real ID?
