You may not have heard of Bridget but you ought to:

her latest post is something I really empathize with.

At Big Hollywood Greg Gutfeld details a session of tweets with the Park51 people that I had the pleasure to see in progress:

And so I return to that tweet I received from the Mosque-teers earlier this week. When I asked them if they would welcome my new Islamic gay bar (the most popular name by the way, is “Outfidels”) next to their center, they wrote:

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

And so, eariler, I tried to build dialogue. I tweeted them all day, asking them why they rejected Paterson – and offered them a spot on Redeye.

They evaded the question – and, in the spirit of communication and tolerance – turned down my show. Their reasoning: I wouldn’t engage in “dialogue.”

So, by asking them to come on the show, and talk about the mosque, I was not engaging in “dialogue.” And by refusing to come on the show, they were.

And here again you see where, when it comes to the mosque, tolerance is a one-way street. We tolerate them. They hate us.

So Gutfeld has proven that the people involved in this mosque are disingenuous.

But remembering Moonbattery’s video concerning Islam successfully proving that Radical Islam might not be telling the truth is as exciting as proving Lindsy Lohan’s virtue might be questionable.

So that is a victory of sorts but since it will not be considered “proof” by anyone who actually opposes the Mosque it is a Pyrrhic victory.

Moral victories mean nothing to Radical Islam, they only understand force.

Qualifiers not withstanding it appears that their reports might have more meat than I thought, Confederate Yankee continues to disagree and has some backup. I respect him very much but the conflicting reports don’t seem to confirm one story or the other.

Or to put it another way. I don’t know the truth, so my implication that Digger’s Realm and Kimberly Dvorak were shown wrong was premature and patronizing.

Since I can’t decide what is true and what is not I have no business implying that they are clinging to a false story for that I apologize.

I talked to a friend, active tea party member and regular reader of this blog today. She will be making her TV panelist debut on WGBH Channel 2 Boston at 7 p.m. on the show Greater Boston talking about Illegal Immigration and defending the conservative cause.

As a conservative Tea Party person on public TV she will of course be matched against two liberals to challenge her. Pretty heavy stuff for her first time on the firing line, but I’m sure when the show comes on tonight I’ll see she acquitted herself splendidly.

7 p.m. WGBH if you are in Boston, the panel discussion should be online at the link above after it is broadcast.

Update: The video is online here
