Guess which one gets the softball questions:
Pamela’s on the wrong side of history? She’s “fringe”? Really? Why do a majority of Americans object to the Ground Zero mosque? Are they all on the wrong side of history? Was this guy just spouting off a bunch of cheap talking points, or what? Those who don’t buy the bull are “ignorant”…that’s the koolaid the oh-so-tolerant left needs to feel smugly superior to the rest of us.
It’s clear to me what’s going on, and it has nothing to do with tolerance for different religions, but supremacy over them: A Mosque at Ground Zero Equals Victory.
See Jihad Watch for more commentary.
Pamela’s report on the Mega-Mosque protest:
Wrong side of history!
El Marco was there as well. His photo-essay isn’t up yet, but he did a pre-report last night:
I think the 8,000 in Pamela’s post may be a typo, as everywhere else I’m seeing the number at 5000.
Pat Cadell wonders if America is losing its mind:
He’s right, it’s one insult too far, and that spokesman dweeb who debated Geller on CNN in the first video – who feigned offense at our offense, was profoundly unconvincing. Let’s just say, his taqiyya was weak.
El Marco has some pictures up, here.
Another crack CNN crowd counting job, here:
CNN iReporter Julio Ortiz-Teissonniere, who attended the rally and sent photos to CNN, said the number was closer to 200-300 while he was there for the first 45 minutes of the event. All three said the protest was peaceful.

Another blogger, Conservative Monster reports:
I am estimating that about 8,000-10,000 people showed up to this protest since there were so many people that were passing by and showed their support as well. I did not see any news trucks from CNN, MSNB Sleaze, NY1 or Fox News. The press prior to the protest most likely helped get the crowd out, so at least that is good news.
Maybe that’s where the 8,000 number came from?
