So it turns out the man who slashed a New York City cabdriver's throat after asking him if he was a Muslim was...a supporter of the Ground Zero Mosque:
The alleged assailant, Michael Enright, is — according to his Facebook profile and the website of the left-leaning media organization Intersections International — a student at the School of Visual Arts and a volunteer for Intersections, which recently produced a statement of support for the Park51 project and is funded by the mainstream, liberal Collegiate Church of New York.
Intersections did not respond to two messages, and the group does not appear to be picking up the phone. Enright did not respond to a message through his Facebook account.
Enright was trying to kill an innocent man in order to gin up hatred against other innocent people in order to allow a mosque to be built on the graves of other innocent people killed by the religion espoused by said mosque.
It's an epic fail...almost. He did find one sucker - Mayor Bloomberg, who grows dumber by the minute:
“This attack runs counter to everything that New Yorkers believe, no matter what God we may pray to," Mayor Bloomberg said in response to the attack.
Bloomberg is too dense to realize that Enright was actually on his side. Or that perhaps it was Bloomberg's incendiary rhetoric that drove Enright to attempt murder in order to have the mosque built. In any case, Bloomberg decides to take another dive off the deep (left) end and urge the Muslims of the Mosque to remain rigid, hardline, intolerant, and spiteful:
A defiant Mayor Bloomberg, saying there should be no compromise, insisted last night that a mosque be built near Ground Zero, declaring, "We must do what is right, not what is easy.
"There are people of every faith -- including, perhaps, some in this room -- who are hoping that a compromise will end the debate," he said. "But it won't."
Amazing - the Mayor of New York now demands that a mosque be built on Ground Zero, barely hiding his disgust for those who may not approve , while refusing to criticize those on his own side who attempt murder on behalf of Mayor Mike's Jihad. Such self-blinding self-righteousness is shocking in a public figure, and will only lead to more mayhem. 99.9% which will be committed by the Mayor's side.
I leave you with these thoughts on where the mayor's jihad will take us:
Self-righteous people can talk themselves into forgetting they are part of a civilization. They can then feed on that culture, bringing it down. It's happened many times in the past. It could happen to us.
The greatest enemy to human souls is the self-righteous spirit which makes men look to themselves for salvation.
Update: Interesting contribution re: Mike Enright in the comments...
Updare II: From Jim Geraghty's Morning Jolt:
We need to stop this mosque project, to prevent its supporters from assaulting any more Muslims!
