The Ultimate Act of Spite

Over the past few weeks, America's elite political class, which has no better representative than New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg, has displayed something close to ecstacy when spitting on the cultural sensibilities of average Americans by backing the proposed mosque/Islamic cultural center near Ground Zero in lower Manhattan. The opportunity to lecture Americans on the finer points of multiculturalism - the primary doctrine of which is that Western (read: white European) culture is unmitigated evil and everything else is good - is something they can't pass up. Nor can they resist the chance to call anyone who disagrees with them a bigot/racist. Fortunately, that term is losing is impact due to overuse.

In the face of rising opposition to the project, the elite's irritation at the audacity of ordinary Americans to dare to disagree with them has now turned to pure spite. Not only do the elites insist that the mosque - whose only purpose is to infuriate and insult Americans - but they now are offering government financial assistance for the project.

The Muslim center planned near the site of the World Trade Center attack could qualify for tax-free financing, a spokesman for City Comptroller John Liu said on Friday, and Liu is willing to consider approving the public subsidy.

The Democratic comptroller's spokesman, Scott Sieber, said Liu supported the project. The center has sparked an intense debate over U.S. religious freedoms and the sanctity of the Trade Center site, where nearly 3,000 perished in the September 11, 2001 attack.

"If it turns out to be financially feasible and if they can demonstrate an ability to pay off the bonds and comply with the laws concerning tax-exempt financing, we'd certainly consider it," Sieber told Reuters.

This is how America's elite function. If they can't win a public debate, they turn the machinery of government against the people.

In previous generations, America's elite felt some attachment to the nation's ethnic majority and the common culture, mostly because they were drawn from the same gene pool. But today's elite is comprised largely of people who have very few ethnic ties to the majority population, and only contempt for its ethnic makeup and religious/ideological beliefs. This is why they can so easily embrace anyone and anything that damages America's core identity or interests.

It is also why they so desperately embrace open borders immigration, a policy designed to destroy America's core ethnic identity.
