So for some reason my remote stuck on MSNBC tonight ;) And I caught Chris Mathews. The first segment I caught was about the Mosque at Ground zero on Sept 11th. He spent the entire segment pointing out that the ground was public ground and that for NO REASON should the mosque be being built there.
ok...fast forward through the commercials and he comes RIGHT back with a segment on Glenn Beck giving a rally/speech thingy on the steps of the Lincoln memorial on the day of MLK jrs I have dream speech. He is PISSED about it. Says THAT is a sacred day and sacred ground...ummmm what?
His OWN MSNBC commentator and political science proff POINTED OUT the hypocrisy in that and he just "eeehed" her off.
So...what do you think? Do you care if GB has a rally in DC that day? Is it sacred but ground zero area not? or vice versa?

I have to say, personally, I don't care about either event. I do not live in NY and I do not visit any mosques. I do not listen to GB and I won't be going to his speech. I think the problem is that a lot of people emotionalize things like the mosque and even GB giving a speech and don't realize that they are showing their double standards. This is why I try to never emotionalize anything political. But even when I have a strong belief in my own opinion, I can completely understand and grasp that someone else out there feels exactly the opposite as I do and I respect that - no matter how much I disagree.
