Ron Paul on the Mosque

I am not really Ron Paul's biggest fan, most especially on race issues, but kudos is due to him for getting things basically right here.

  1. Much of what Paul says here is indeed right. On the other hand, he himself engages in the kind of tendentious demagoguery that he condemns when he claims that the anti-mosque outcry was created by "neoconservatives" who want to drum up support for endless wars. Most of the anti-mosque advocacy has been conducted by conservatives who can't be considered "neo" in any way, unless merely disagreeing with Paul's views on foreign policy automatically makes you neo.

    Paul also ignores the more reasonable objections to the mosque based on the specific (and in many cases despicable) views of its particular sponsors.
