What kind of Muslim doesn’t support the Ground Zero Mosque?

Way back in like ’06, when I questioned which type of Islam Lupe Fiasco belongs to, prison Islam or terrorist Islam, the likes of TPAR got all butthurt. Some of them didn’t like the terms I came up with – prison Islam, for the type of Islam black people often convert to in prison, and terrorist Islam, for the type of Islam that’s led some (not all Muslims, mind you) to blow themselves up in exchange for sex with 72 virgins[1]. Some of them resented the very idea that there’s a difference between prison Islam and terrorist Islam. Even though I’m pretty sure real Muslims, in the Middle East, don’t take black Muslims seriously. I know there were some attempts by the terrorists to reach out to the black youth here in the US, by way of rap music, Malcolm X and what have you, but that’s just because they need warm bodies. They’re like the US Army: when they get desperate, they start to ease up on their standards for recruitment. No shots at the troops, over there making sure I’m safe to sit around all day in the A/C, watching BangBros videos until my balls start to hurt. (That’s not bad for my balls, is it)? I’m just saying.

I couldn’t tell, just from listening to his music, the exact nature of Lupe Fiasco’s religious beliefs. I detected a whiff of Islamic fascism, in the parts where he criticized rap videos for having too much pussy in them. (Of course I’d beg to differ). But I know he’s from Chicago, which is like the Salt Lake City of prison Islam. Can you be a black Muslim in Chicago and not be a capital-B Black Muslim? Wouldn’t Farrakhan just have you shot, like he did Malcolm X? Wouldn’t bin Laden be pissed at Farrakhan, for killing Malcolm X, Prince of Islam? How come they didn’t have him taken out a long time ago? Or do they still find him useful for recruitment purposes? The whole thing boggles the mind. That’s why I try not to think about it.

But it just occurred to me again, the other day, when I read where Lupe Fiasco has come out against the Ground Zero Mosque. Which, of course, isn’t even at Ground Zero. I’ve heard it’s gonna be three blocks away, sandwiched in between a Burlington Coat Factory and a strip club. Or will it displace the Burlington Coat Factory and the strip club? I can’t imagine they’d purposely elect to build a mosque next door to a strip club, even if it was in a location that would be useful for upsetting the families of the victims of the attacks on 9/11. As much as I’m not with the people protesting the Ground Zero Mosque, I’ll admit, the idea of a mosque displacing a strip club bothers me. As an atheist, pr0nography might be the closest thing I have to religion. I’m definitely devoted to it. And I like the idea of a Burlington Coat Factory next door to a strip club: you can buy some clothes chicks aren’t attracted to (anymore), and where them next door to a place where the women are better-looking anyway, and not nearly as judgmental.

Put a Wendy’s next door to that, and we’d be in business!

I’m also not sure if it’s even a mosque. I’ve heard it referred to as an Islamic cultural center, though I’m not sure what that means, or what their motives were in calling it that. While I support the Muslims’ right, constitutionally, to build a big eff u to all of those dead firefighters and stockbrokers, I wouldn’t be surprised if they aren’t completely on the up and up. I’m pretty sure I read somewhere where they didn’t want to say where they’re getting the money to build this thing, which I’m sure costs a shedload of money, and it wasn’t on one of these conservative. I don’t really fuck with any conservative sites, unless you count Infowars (the troof has no political slant), in part because there’s only so much time in the day and in part because, invariably, liberal minded people tend to be a lot smarter and much better writers. I’ll read anything, if it’s enjoyable. No homo. Anyway, bin Laden might be funding this Ground Zero Mosque. I’m sure the government could find a financial connection between bin Laden and a ham sandwich, if they wanted to. They probably would have a long time ago, if this shit didn’t make for such a good distraction from more pressing concerns.

You can find the quote from Lupe Fiasco re: the Ground Zero Mosque somewhere at Vlad TV, if you’re so interested. I’d find a link for you, but this is the last day of my vacation, and I’ve got better things to do. I joked on my own site about getting some glitter on my face and eating crab meats, but I haven’t actually had any crab meats. I need to rectify that, before it’s too late. The gist of it was that Lupe thinks it’s important for Muslims to have a place to do whatever it is they do in a mosque (plot against western civilization), but he understands why this is a sensitive issue for the victims of 9/11, and that’s why he’s against it. Again, you have to wonder what his angle is in all of this. For all of the shots that I’ve taken at him over the years, I’ll concede that he’s not a dumb guy. How could he possibly be against the Ground Zero Mosque? Er, the Muslims’ right to build a mosque at Ground Zero, if they want to. I hate to see a mosque built anywhere, even inside a bum’s asshole, just because I hate to see people mislead, but what’s right is right. It’s what separates us from countries that don’t have as many rights as we do, assuming there are any countries that don’t have as many rights as we do, at this point.

I’m left with either one of two conclusions: (1) Lupe Fiasco is about as Muslim as I am skinny. (2) The TIs told him he had to come out against the Ground Zero Mosque, or else they wouldn’t release Lasers. Which one is it, Lupe?

[1] Something that just occurred to me about the 72 virgins: Does it matter when you blow yourself up? What if you’re old and about to die of cancer or some shit anyway, like Christopher Hitchens? There wouldn’t be as much sacrifice, but you could still take out a lot of Jews – which is what really matters here, right? You should still get like, 36 virgins. If there were a such thing as Allah, I might go for that, when I’m old (hopefully) and about to die. Instead, I might take a shedload of heroin.

    “…Even though I’m pretty sure real Muslims, in the Middle East, don’t take black Muslims seriously.”

    Damn! Either you are seriously ignorant, or you are seriously brain-damaged. Do you even own a passport? Have you ever left this country to visit ANY place other than strip clubs??? If you did you would realize that “Black Muslims” are everywhere. Not only the U.S.

    So I’m thinking…..Maybe you should have used the words “African American Muslims”. I hate to be your editor, but that is really some ignorant shit.

    If you’re cracking jokes…. Crack jokes. But do it with half a brain.

      Sha, he’s obviously referring to the Nation Of Islam, and not Black people who are Muslim. The NOI has different beliefs that other Islamic sectors. So yeah, you have to wonder what they think about the Mother Plane and Allah appearing in person to meet Wallace Fard Muhammad.

    No, no. The strip club is safe. Mosque is replacing the Burlington Coat Factory.

  • 6 100

    The “Cultural Center” is located in a building that used to be a Burlington Coat Factory.

    And the stip club is about a block away from the spot. The strippers are all white, and all skinny with fake tits

    There is a Wendys on Nassua streetlike 4-5 blocks away though

    tell me this: why is everyone so upset they’re building a mosque at the 9/11 site?
    as the 9/11 truth movement grows, don’t you think its funny the media starts this new controversy over a mosque at ground zero?
    it’s all just to distract us from what actually happened on that terrible day.
    open your eyes.

    Fuck off you Bigot. I regret ever meeting you and being cool with you Byron.

    This article is filled with way too many lies and slander for me to correct it.

      wow…you catching feelings after being scorned by Bol? The Bang Bus and Naughty America worshipper? damn homie…you should be embarrassed to even type that kind of stuff.

      Anyway…I doubt the Nation of Islam is regarded as true Islamic teaching.I doubt they’re wearing bow-ties in Mecca whilst watching Calypso ‘The Charmer’ Louis speak.

  • tstiffy

    Man, I’m cool with the cultural center. A huge portion of the world pop is Muslim. A vast minority of said religion blow shit up. I’m sure there’s a big ass synagogue and many big ass churches in the vicinity in Manhattan. Jews and Christians alike have “terrorized” the good ol’ US in the past, too.

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news to the protestors. Wherever your chosen house of worship is located in the states is on stolen land. There were probably a gang o’ pissed off Native Americans a lot closer than three big ass NYC blocks to any of the early US churches and shit. They didn’t get a chance to protest, cause they were shot on sight in a lot of cases.

    Catholics especially need to chill, all Christians for that matter. Even though I’m not an authority on world theology/history, I’d have to guess Vatican City is on what was once disputed land.

    People need to learn to love their fucking brother—even if he got some wild ass head wrap on.

        I thought that after I posted too, but I figured I’d wait for the official results from the intellectual Pumper/Juelz debate about whether saying no homo or something similar is actually crazy homo before getting back to pausing and nohomizzling.

    Keep up the good work, Bol. These bitch ass niggas need a dose of non-pussification.

  • flavorblade

    When you write this way on a serious topics I’m not sure if you’re looking for real responses or follow along jokes.

    Lupe’s opinion in this matter appears to be more socio-politically angled than religious affiliated. African Americans who are Muslim tend to be more holistic in their total belief system than Arabs. I think because Islam is more of an alternative choice in the States. So the practitioner is liable to still incorporate concepts from the primary belief system of the land as well strands from other alternative schools of thought.

  • killa

    you are the most ignorant dumb fuck i have ever heard of… couldn’t get past all the ignorance in your first paragraph, fuck you and your beliefs with your dumb misinformed ignorant ass. go lick Bill O’reillys asshole while you at you dumbfuck.

  • fredMS

    Muslims take black muslims srsly.
    but muslims do not take nation of islam-brand islam srsly at all.
    cuz its mad racist (white ppl are the devil) and elijah muhammad says he’s god.
    islam believes all races are equal, and there’s only one god.


      YO, MAN THIS IS INCORRECT Elijah does not say he is god that’s how rumors get started and people get slapped. He simply claims he is a prophet and the last messenger of Allah. Though he does say GOD CAME TO EATH IN THE FORM OF A HUMAN BY THE NAME OF W.D. FARD Muhammad.

    The ugly truth is it’s being financed, at least in part, by a Muslim business partner of Rupert Murdoch – you know, the owner of Fox News. That wouldn’t go over too well with Fox News’ politically conservative viewing audience.
