Greta Van Susteren braves the wilds of Wasilla in search of the shrill voiced Alaskan Cuckoo bird.



In this second half of Geta's interview with the Wacky Wasilla Witch she, of course, broaches the subject of the New York Islamic cultural center and elicits a response from the least qualified person in the country to offer their opinion.

VAN SUSTEREN: We're back live in Wasilla, Alaska, with former governor Sarah Palin. And once again, President Obama has put himself in the middle of a controversy, this time over the planned mosque near Ground Zero in New York. Now, on Friday, President Obama came out strong in defense of Muslims building that mosque. Then Saturday, when things seemed to get a bit heated, the president clarified his statement, saying he would not comment on the wisdom on the decision to build a mosque there. Governor Palin?

PALIN: Well, you know, it sounds cliched to say that the president is disconnected from the American people on this issue, but how else do you describe it? He just doesn't get it, that this is an insensitive move on the part of those Muslims who want to build that mosque in this location. It feels like a stab in the heart to, collectively, Americans who still have that lingering pain from 9/11.

A "stab in the heart?"  Now see THIS is Palin's version of "religious tolerance."  She obviously lays the blame for the attacks on 9-11 on ALL Muslims in the world, including those living in New York City who actually endured the attacks and undoubtedly lost loved ones on that fateful day.  But because of their religious beliefs, Palin feels that it is acceptable to paint them all as terrorists, or terrorist sympathizers.

(By the way if you want to REALLY understand how religious intolerance can feel like a "stab through your heart" you should educate yourselves on what the introduction of  western culture and Christianity did to the native people of Alaska.  I wonder if Todd Palin feels a "stab through his heart" when he passes a Russian Orthodox Church or the local Wal-Mart?)

PALIN: Well, what the president seems to be suggesting is that everybody needs to be so tolerant of others' beliefs. That is fine. Then let him take that lesson and try to apply it to the debate on the other side if you were right now and talk to that imam, those others who want to build and choose that precise location for their mosque that is so offensive to so many people, and ask them to be tolerant. Ask them to understand America's feelings on this. And see if then the president can use some of his influence in a more positive, less divisive way. That's one way that he can help bridge this divide.

So in other words Sarah Palin is all for religious tolerance so long as it is OTHER religions being tolerant of HER religions intolerance and xenophobia? 

VAN SUSTEREN: Well, I think it certainly says the president doesn't pay attention to polls because I think (INAUDIBLE) American people overwhelmingly are opposed to it. I mean, I think the numbers -- I haven't seen the numbers today because I've been on the road with you -- actually, up in the air with you. But I haven't seen the numbers, but he certainly - - I mean, he's making decisions independent of the polls.

PALIN: No, I don't believe that.

VAN SUSTEREN: You don't believe it?

PALIN: I believe that's why he made his comment Friday night. He knew immediately because his advisers told him, You went too far on this. So the next morning, he tried to backtrack that. And now, curiously, he's not coming out and saying -- we want to know -- Mr. President, we have a right to know. What's your position on this? Again, we all know that there is that 1st Amendment right to build a church, a mosque where they want to, if it's legally appropriate. But what is your position on this? Should they? Do you support it? And we don't have the answer from him.

You know if Palin were a person who was fit to be the President of this great country she would understand that President Obama should NOT express his personal opinions on this debate.  His job is to defend the Constitution, not take sides in a local conflict over New York City real estate.

Besides doesn't Palin have "sticking your nose in and overreacting to issues that don't even concern you", already covered?

P.S. I know that some of you have trouble getting he videos to play, so if you click here you can read the transcripts as well as see the first part of the interview that i did not include in this post.

    Paylin's "reasoning" is juvenile and overly simplistic. She does not possess the capacity for complex mental processes. That is why she appeals to the ignorant and uneducated, they can understand her. It doesn't matter if she's right or wrong, it is enough that she pays attention to these fools and they reward her with their adulation. It's incredibly frustrating, but we have to remember that the system works: when given the opportunity, the American people overwhelmingly rejected this under-qualified beauty-queen-wanna-be.

    I'm wide awake, thank you. You see, in the Democratic party we tolerate the dissenting views of others. Harry Reid expressed his disagreement with the President's position. He has not been ostracized, demonized nor vilified. We respect his right to have his own opinion. Scarah Paylin is only right on this issue if you completely deny the Constitution. She is right only if you support religious intolerance, racism and oppression. And for the record, I seriously doubt $P has been right about any substantial issue ever.

    Again, it's not the President's job to approve or disapprove a community center, not a mosque being built. His job is to uphold the constitution, which Sarah has no respect for.

    This is an issue for the people of NYC to decide. She should stay out of it. 2 blocks in NYC is the difference between one neighborhood and another (I know, I used to live there).

    Personally, I think our President is upholding the 1st ammendment of our Constitution that is being so bandied about these days.

    IMHO, having a cultural center built NEAR the "hallowed" ground of the WTC would be a collective middle finger to all religious extremists from the people of the USA. What better way to say "United we Stand"? But that's just me...

  22. Well $arah, the president is doing his job.

    He is supporting and defending the constitution, with true faith and allegiance.

    His personal "opinions" are not part of his job.

    Of course we KNOW that an "oath of office" means nothing to you, because you proved that by quitting YOUR "job" as governor of Alaska.



    OATH OF OFFICE

    for Congressmen, Senators and the President of the United States as set forth in the US Constitution:

    I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    "I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States"

    "I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same"

    All current politicians making statements that the "mosque" should be built "somewhere else", have broken their oath of office.

    By making such statements they are SUBVERTING the constitution instead, by exerting political pressure in order to SUPPRESS Americans of the Muslim faith, their first amendment rights.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Amendment 1 - Freedom of Religion, Press, Expression. Ratified 12/15/1791.

    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

She stabs others on national tv, while her 15 year-old daughter stabs at the heart of a family whose home she may have vandalized. What about Bristol using US and People mags to sell her personal life stories. Her marriage plans, then oops, no marriage plans. Criticizing her baby's father? How is that going to stab at the heart of Sarah's grandchild some day?

    Her judgments of others may come back to roost on her doorstep if those skeletons of hers are ever exposed. She talks about her disappointment in the President. Imagine the disappointment of her donors, followers, supporters when her s#it hits the fan? That'll be the disappointment of the century.

    Greta's main reason for traveling to Alaska is most likely to attend and cover the funeral of Senator Ted Stevens. Palin was probably secondary. Senator Stevens service will be held tomorrow and VP Joe Biden will be in attendance along w/other dignataries.

    Palin's attendance will be something to watch as she was not in good sted w/Senator Stevens and probably would not be warmly received by the Stevens family. He didn't trust her which most of us in Alaska already knew.

Their whole intent in trying to move into our neighborhood needs to be examined. Just what are they up to anyway.....

    Just how does one know what the "9/11" families want? Has there been such a poll? Who qualifies as a "9/11" family member.

    Do you have to be the family member of someone killed? seriously injured (and then there's defining "seriously injured") injured. afraid and running down the street? someone who's business on harmed? someone who's business was on the path while people were running away from the Twin Towers. work in the twin towers?

    Do those "victims" or "survivors" of the Pentagon and Plane count?

    Assuming we can decide on the definition of "victim" or "survivor" of 9-11, who is a family member?
    Spouses for sure. and children.
    What about parents of adult children? Grandparents? neighbors, friends. religious community? colleagues? those who worked in the same office.



    And then there's the question, why do families's feelings count more than the feelings of those who live in Manhatten? or NYC? or New York?

    Who gets to decide who's feelings count?

    I'm not suggesting this should be decided by feelings. I think the Constitution is more important. This is one of the precise reasons the Constitution protects fundamental rights.

    I'm just suggesting their "feelings" arguments is as porous as cheesecloth.

    I worked in the building directly across the street from the WTC. The building I worked in sustained so much damage that we had to work in NJ for over a year while they replaced everything with exact replicas of tiling, light fixtures, paint…. However nothing can remove the shock of coming down the elevator which faces the wall of windows that now show the hole where the WTC once stood.

    When we went home at night, you can still smell the results lingering in the air. The sky had this yellowish hue for about a week. We looked up all of the time. We walked around numb once we were allowed back into the building.

    None of that compares to not being able to worship whenever and wherever I want to. if the COMMUNITY CENTER is forced to relocate because there’s a mosque housed in the building, could you imagine the precedent it would set for future houses of worship?

    Anyway - her comment about the other Manhattan mosques is meant to stir the racist hearts of her followers. How does she know what the other mosques have done or haven't done on behalf of education, promoting tolerance, reconciliation and understanding? She sure wouldn't be aware of it, nor would she have cared had anyone reached out to her. (God knows she didn't reach out to them.) She is so busy hogging Fox's airtime that they probably wouldn't have a chance to notice if something like that were even happening!

    toilet plungers from Wal Mart not from a door to door salesman.

    Americans just need to step back from the emotional debates, and realize what's going here: The GOP is PREDICTABLY stoking fear-based cultural issues because they are a party in disarray with nothing else to offer at this time.

    ---scary illegal immigrants
    ---scary Muslims
    ---scary "anchor babies"
    ---scary New Black Panthers
    ---scary gay marriage
    ---scary gays in the military
    ---scary Black Muslim Socialist President
    ---and on and on and on

    Meanwhile the Democratic Party is trying to actually implement policy and help regular Americans,

    Folks need to understand and recognize these tactics. Point them out to everyone you talk to. It's so clear and obvious once you get people to step back and actually look at the issues the GOP are pushing. They are SCAPEGOATING. Period!!!!

    SP is attempting to act "perplexed" on this dilemma on why the President won't give his personal opinion. The President/ acting presidential, by not taking off the Pres. hat (as you did when Gov.) He knows he represents ALL the citizens in this country and no matter which way he may feel personally, it does not matter because the constitution protects their rights.

    Also, her behavior reminds me of someone throwing a stink bomb in a "mob crowd" and watching them go at each other.

    She is an instigator.

    Please do not call her a witch. It is an insult to all Pagans and witches, who believe in doing no harm.

    She just does not qualify being called a witch.

    Sarah,there is a church across the street from where the twin towers were located. Maybe that church should be closed as not to offend the Muslim people who died that day. It is okay to have a Catholic church near ground zero but not other faiths.

    Did anyone notice that Greta was flying on Franklin Graham's plane?

    I don't understand why she keeps asking the president to do something about it. it's not up to him. it's up to whatever department in NYC takes care of these things. The president, currently not a citizen of NYC, can only state the law and his opinion. what in the world does she expect him to do...and if he did it (get involved) would she then expect the same if he had an opinion and wanted to get involved in the location of the church of her witch-doctor pastor?

    so many good comments here, it's difficult to give props to all of them - but I must say that anon @ 3:21 pm is one of many who nails it.

    a fear based cultural issue, that's all this is. has absolutely nothing to do with correcting any of the problems we have in this country. such a waste.

  71. Sorry Anonymous 5:00.

    I really wanted to call her the "B" word but then my XX chromosomes visitors get all defensive and I guess I kind of figured there were fewer Wiccans visiting my site than females so I took the coward's way out. Sorry. Though let's face it, I could have offended you either way.

    However if it makes you feel any better, I picture her more as the kind of witch you drop a house on, as portrayed in the "Wizard of Oz", rather than a cute bookish lesbian witch ala "Buffy the Vampire Slayer."

    Does that help?

    The is off subject but I'm curious to know reactions, especially in Alaksa - to Palin re ANWR on Greta - According to Palin it is barren land with little wildlife and ripe for drilling. Is this true? What do the environmentalists in Alaska say? It looked barren but I wonder what wildlife is below the surface and at risk of drilling. . .

    In my opinion, these anti-mosque people are just plain childish. So I guess I can hate all men because a man molested a child? That is the same thing as blaming all Muslims for what happened on 9-11. Islam didn't kill all those people. Bad people killed all those people. What is it those right-wingers are so fond of saying: Guns don't kill people; people kill people.

    Ok, I would like one of our computer nerds on this site to take that video and replace "our president, President Obama" (and any other term she uses referencing the president) and replace it with "I" when Sarah is speaking. Replace it with "you" when Greta is speaking. Oh yeah! It fits perfectly.

    Gryphen (from Anonymous @ 5:00).

    I understand what you are saying, and appreciate the response/apology/explanation.

    There has to be a word to describe her that does not demean other women. Too bad I can not think of one.

    I am probably overly sensitive, but seeing what she is trying to do to the Muslims, I think it is only a matter of time before burning witches starts entering her lexicon.

    And you are right, just like the terrorists, just because someone of a particular religion does something horrendous, that does not mean that all people of that religion are equally horrendous.

    Sarah can be the Wicked Witch of the Ice Cold North.

    Namaste
