Dear Muslim Republicans,

I share your outrage and hurt at Donald Trump’s recent comments and policy suggestions about Muslims. I share your outrage and hurt that he still is polling well among Republicans. I share your outrage and hurt that we should even have to discuss such matters.… Read more ...

This topic was previously discussed in the comments at LNC In Action, but not yet in an IPR post itself. Although this is always true, since this is a contentious topic, I would like to remind our readers that all opinions expressed are those of the author, in this case Thomas Sipos, not editorial statements by myself (paulie) or Independent Political Report.Read more ...

Wayne Allyn Root, John Hospers: The LP’s Anti-Libertarian Faces

Massachusetts Libertarian Party Chair George Phillies reports on Independent Political Report (comment 148):

“I am amused to report that the LNC was contacted by a reporter who wanted to do a story on possible interactions between the Libertarian Party and Malcolm X, the question being ‘Has Malcolm X inspired your Libertarian activism?’

“It was observed by one LNC member that there was a PA local candidate who was a member of the Nation of Islam.… Read more ...

Phil Maymin: In the Lower Manhattan Islamic center debate, everyone is pretending to be something they’re not

By Phil Maymin, 2006 Libertarian candidate for U.S. House of Representatives from Connecticut’s 4th congressional district. Forwarded by Marc Montoni via email.

When it comes to the mosque to be built near Ground Zero in New York City, everyone is pretending to be something they’re not.

Perhaps for the first time since Grover Cleveland, a Democratic president is championing private property rights, states’ rights and a limited federal government.… Read more ...

Libertarian Party Blog: ‘Ron Paul, former LP Presidential candidate, supports property rights of Islamic cultural Center supporters’

Libertarian National Committee Chair Mark Hinkle at Libertarian Party Blog:

http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-503544_162-20014453-503544.html

Libertarian Congressman Ron Paul is breaking with many of his fellow Republicans – among them his son Rand – to support the creation of the planned Islamic cultural center near the former site of the World Trade Center that has come to be known as the "ground zero mosque."

In a statement decrying "demagogy" around the issue, the former Republican presidential candidate wrote late last week that "the debate should have provided the conservative defenders of property rights with a perfect example of how the right to own property also protects the 1st Amendment rights of assembly and religion by supporting the building of the mosque."

 "Instead, we hear lip service given to the property rights position while demanding that the need to be ‘sensitive’ requires an all-out assault on the building of a mosque, several blocks from ‘ground zero,’" Paul continues.Read more ...

Libertarian Mike Beitler: ‘Mosque issue hijacked for political expediency’

Liberty Point:

The issue of whether or not to build a mosque near the site of the World Trade Towers terrorist attack has been hijacked for political expediency, said Mike Beitler, Libertarian candidate for U.S. Senate in an op ed on his website. “To collectively blame every Muslim for the actions of a few is probably the most un-American act I can think of,” Beitler said.… Read more ...

Howie Hawkins (G-NY) Decries Attack on Proposed Muslim Center near World Trade Center

OnTheWilderSide:

The only way that the Green Party can regain ballot status in NY is to get 50,000 votes for their Governor candidate in 2010. This opportunity comes only once every four years, and it only applies to the Governor’s race. Gaining ballot status will enable the Green Party to run more peace candidates, more single-payer candidates, more anti-fracking candidates, and more sustainable energy candidates.

Statement on the ‘Ground Zero Mosque’ by Jake Towne

Originally published August 17, 2010 at http://towneforcongress.com/individual-rights/ground-zero-mosque/

On the front page of today’s Morning Call was an article on the mosque to be located near Ground Zero in NYC. Below is a video statement and transcript of those remarks. My comments were misinterpreted slightly, and I absolutely do not speak for all Muslims – just myself – but the fact remains the reporter just wasn’t able to fit in my full thoughts on the matter, so the below is mainly to elaborate.… Read more ...
