Shut up, go away, and also, stop lying, or at least tell your politicians to stop lying.
It might help you recognize the truth, which is that you're wrong, and
you're attacking vital American freedoms by going against this Mosque.
The truth is that you're terrorists in your own right. You are striking
against America by going against ...this mosque. You are, in effect, almost
as bad as the ones who killed people on 9/11. Okay, not quite, not
really, but kind of, because you're fighting against what 9/11 victims
died for: religious freedom, which said terrorists don't have and don't want anyone else to have.
But now you have a map to see how wrong you are, okay? Now: Fuck you.
Fuck you and shut up, you assholes. Shut up and leave New York alone.
