Government May Seize Land for Islamic 9/11 Memorial

The gargantuan mihrab the government has scene fit to construct as a memorial to Flight 93 for some reason requires 1,500 acres of highly valuable, resource-rich land. The people who own it may not want to sell, considering many regard the memorial as a tribute to the hijackers, not the heroes who prevented them from crashing to plane into the Capitol or White House. But that's okay, the government can just seize the property:

The federal government issued an ultimatum … to people who own land designated for the Flight 93 memorial in Western Pennsylvania: They have one week to reach an agreement on the sale of their land or the government will initiate proceedings to seize it.
The order came hours after Interior Secretary Ken Salazar and U.S. Sen. Arlen Specter (D., Pa.) met with people who own 500 acres in and around the Shanksville area, where Flight 93 crashed on Sept. 11, 2001, and with victims' relatives eager to see the memorial built in time for the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks.

Here's a little reminder of the grotesquely inappropriate design our moonbat rulers have settled on:

According to the National Park Service Fact Sheet on the Flight 93 National Memorial:

By law, lands may only be purchased from willing sellers for the Flight 93 National Memorial.

But rule of law is so pre–Hope and Change.

I WON'T AND NEVER WILL! But, if they do build it, somebody, someday will blow the damn thing into an enormous smoking hole you would be able to see from the moon with a pair of cheap binoculars.

It would be a bad idea to live within 10 miles of this future blast.

Why does this "Memorial" require 1,500 acres?

Right kek, there should be a nation-wide, hell a global outcry against this insanity. I felt sick just reading it.

The intentional dishonoring of the memories of the brave and true heroes of 9/11 just keeps going and going.

Really, really terrible :(

This lunacy makes about as much sense as erecting a Shintoist/Buddhist temple above the resting place of the USS Arizona at Pearl Harbor! Are they going to include a statue of King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia so Obama can go by and bow down whenever he wants? In saner days, the treasonous vermin who would have suggested such an undertaking would have been tarred, feathered, and run out of town tied to the front of a locomotive.

The reason why they want 1500 acres appears obvious. They don't want adjacent landowners erecting a competing patriotic memorial in memory of the heroes of Flight 93, or, as an insult to Islam, having a pig farm next door (not a bad idea). If the heavy hand of government is used to forcibly take the land from the landowners who are unwilling to allow this travesty to go forward, just another piece of our freedoms will be chopped away by Maoist Hussein Obama's administration.

This is why I hate Liberals more each day.

You have to ask: "Are they really that stupid, or are they doing this delibratly to piss us off?"

Take a moment to look at the full plan, not just the composites. It's actually a beautiful tribute:
