Nancy Pelosi Brings Back the McCarthy Era – Info Gathering on 9/11 Mosque Opposition

Posted on August 18, 2010

Republicans want to get to the bottom of who has financed the mosque proposed for a lot close to the 9/11 site.  Mayor Michael Bloomberg has called their investigatory actions “un-American.”

Nancy Pelosi wants to investigate individuals who have protested the mosque.

“There is no question there is a concerted effort to make this a political issue by some. And I join those who have called for looking into how is this opposition to the mosque being funded,” she said. “How is this being ginned up that here we are talking about Treasure Island, something we’ve been working on for decades, something of great interest to our community as we go forward to an election about the future of our country and two of the first three questions are about a zoning issue in New York City.” (h/t Kristinn) [Washington Times via Drudge Report]

It is wartime.  The government does not want to know the identities of who is behind the Mosque?  What about that “Patriot Act”?  I guess spying on its own citizens what this government is about.  Since the Republicans have come out in vocal opposition to this mosque, this is of course partisan politics.
