Greg Gutfeld, genius 

In the brouhaha over the so-called “Ground Zero Mosque,” there’s been a lot of inconsistency among all sides. Many conservatives, including former GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin have been advocating against property-rights (something they’ve gotten rightfully upset about regarding the Supreme Court’s atrocious ruling in Kelo vs. New London). Liberals such as New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg have finally found a religious institution they can get behind–one utterly unaffiliated with traditional Christianity or Judaism.

One person who has formulated the exactly correct approach has been Fox News late-night host Greg Gutfeld who has brilliantly illustrated the absurdity of the whole affair by trying to raise money to build a bar catering to gay Islamic men right by the proposed site of the controversial mosque.

That situation is worth savoring alone but then when you find out that Gutfeld managed to get a comment from the builders of the new Park51 mosque about his project. Their response is reproduced below:

.@greggutfeld You’re free to open whatever you like. If you won’t consider the sensibilities of Muslims, you’re not going to build dialog

The irony is thick enough to cut with a knife. Park51 developers are offended at Gutfeld’s idea and have now called on him to “consider the sensibilities of Muslims.” How would one do that exactly when making a bar targeting openly gay Islamic men?

Perhaps building a butcher shop or a women’s swimwear store right next door would do the trick.
