There are legitimate questions being asked by people who oppose the mosque. One of them involves a desire to know exactly where Rauf is getting the money. Bloomberg chastises those who ask such questions.
Via the New York Post:
He bashed those who wanted to use the city’s landmarking process to stop the mosque and insisted government has no business prying into its finances.Unfortunately, this isn't the first time Bloomberg has utterly embarrassed himself when it comes to rubbing elbows with Islamists in New York City. Last year, he met with an un-indicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing at City Hall in the name of reconciliation.
“Do you really want every time they pass the basket in your church, and you throw a buck in, they run over and say, ‘OK, now, you know, where do you come from?’”
In WWII, Neville Chamberlain sealed his fate as a disgrace when he attempted peace through appeasement. What Bloomberg is doing is much worse. He is actively siding with those who would do us harm. His actions are more reminiscent of Henri-Philippe Petain.
