Once again if people inform themselves before spewing their hate, perhaps they'd get a clue and bite their tongue...

One of the best Special Comments from Keith Olbermann, on Countdown with Keith Olbermann: 'There is no 'Ground Zero Mosque (full transcript and video available at that link and video below courtesy of Countdown). Yes you read that right - THERE IS NO GROUND ZERO MOSQUE!

Want to know what REALLY is being built:

  "...What is planned for 45 Park Place, New York City, is a Community Center. It's supposed to include a basketball court. And a culinary school.  It's to be thirteen stories tall and the top two stories will be a Muslim prayer space." - Keith Olbermann

...and how far away from "Ground Zero" that it REALLY is, and how those that attacked us on 9/11 have nothing to do with this facility:
"...It is two blocks away from the northeast corner of the World Trade Center site. From the planned location of the Sept. 11 memorial it is more like four or even five blocks...." - Keith Olbermann. Yes, once again, you read that right, not even close. 

Sound threatening to you? I doubt it.

So, reminiscent of what is happening due to blind ignorance, lest we remember and never forget:

' “First they came for the Communists, but I was not a Communist so I did not speak out. Then they came for the Socialists and the Trade Unionists, but I was neither, so I did not speak out. Then they came for the Jews, but I was not a Jew so I did not speak out. And when they came for me, there was no one left to speak out for me.” Martin Niemoeller (1892-1984)'

What we are seeing is once more the spread of hate and fear to manipulate people to follow the party that thrives on the hatred hoping to manipulate you. Know the real facts about every issue, and about every real and fabricated controversy before you judge. And yeah, don't forget the Constitution if you need to refresh your memory of all of our rights.

Listen to all that is revealed in Keith's Special Comment. About the people, the structure and its purpose(s). Even if you're not a fan of Keith, it does not make what he tells you any less relevant or true. Learn a little about history, about what is happening right now, and how ridiculous this controversy, that should not be, truly is. It is nothing less than another distraction of what is important:

And oh, yeah, this pretty much shows how when one stop and really listens, really hears about even just it's location, it alone is a wake up call:

What corporations are controlling our destiny?

Don't forget, we have the Supreme Court to thank - they made Corporations people. So you should keep track of the:
