A recent Google search and tweet on social media enlightened us to the fact that there are no Islamic mosques in the Upper East Side of New York City. The Upper East Side is known as a very wealthy, upper class, ritzy neighborhood. Despite their being over 285 mosques in New York City none of them are located in the Upper East Side.
That is a lot of mosques! Yet coincidently they all miss this one section of New York City. News flash, it is no coincidence at all. It was calculated and purposeful. It’s like that for a reason.
The Upper East Side is also known for being flamingly liberal. The Soros family at times has lived there, as has the likes of the Clinton family. Look at some social media users responses to this latest revelation. It is just what you would expect. And rightfully so, people are pissed off.
This perfectly embodies what is wrong with liberals. They push a progressive agenda they expect everyone to abide by and follow by, then they refuse to abide by and follow it as well. They want to have open borders and a liberal immigration policy, yet they won’t allow any Muslim mosques in their neighborhood. There is a reason they don’t.
It is nothing more than flagrant hypocrisy. Yet they are never held accountable for their actions. How would they like it if a Muslim congregation permeated their community and neighborhood? Well, they don’t know, because they haven’t allowed Muslim mosques in their community. Why shouldn’t they be held to the same standards as everybody else?
Nobody is calling them xenophobic bigots. But this is all they call conservatives for wanting the same exact thing. They are nothing more than the epitome of the “not in my backyard” people. What is good for the goose should be good for the gander. Apparently if you have a lot of money though you get to play by a different set of rules. Even though that is exactly the same thing they excuse Republicans of doing.
What the Democratic Party needs more than anything else is a good old mirror. Until they get that and do the self reflection they need to do they will continue to lose election after election after election.
Perhaps if they could not even walk down the street without being able to speak to someone who speaks English they would have another opinion. They have no clue what it is like to live the average American life. They have no clue what it is like to live in a community made up predominantly of Muslims or refugees. How it feels to be treated as an other in your own country where you were born and raised and pay taxes.
Once they understand what that is like, which they never will, then we will listen to them. But not a minute before. We will be dead soon from holding our breath for that long.
