No Moonbat Freedom Museum At Ground Zero...

Museum Dropped From WTC Site for Now - Yahoo! News
NEW YORK - Bowing to pressure from furious Sept. 11 families, Gov. George Pataki on Wednesday removed a proposed freedom museum from the space reserved for it at ground zero, saying the project had aroused "too much opposition, too much controversy."

He left open the possibility that a new spot at the former World Trade Center site could be found for the museum.
The decision followed months of acrimony over the International Freedom Center, with Sept. 11 families and politicians saying that the museum would overshadow and take space from a separate memorial devoted to the 2,749 World Trade Center dead and would dishonor them by fostering debate about the attacks and other world events.
Pataki said that the Freedom Center cannot be part of a cultural building located near the proposed trade center memorial. But he left open the possibility that the center could find a home elsewhere on the 16-acre site.

Pataki said he would direct the Lower Manhattan Development Corp. — the agency he created to rebuild the site — to explore other locations for the center.
"Goodbye and good riddance," said Rep. Vito Fossella one of three congressmen who had threatened hearings on federal funding if the museum stayed where it was. "The IFC will not stand on the hallowed grounds of the World Trade Center site."
In addition to the terrorist attacks, the Freedom Center planned exhibits on such topics as Abraham Lincoln, the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., the fall of the Berlin Wall, the civil rights movement, the Declaration of Independence and the South African constitution.

Okay, so the loonie left can't erect their monument to evil America at ground zero, but don't believe for a New York minute that their insane plans are thoroughly thwarted. Like all rats caught in the light of day, they'll scurry for cover and Pataki will grant them refuge in some nearby nook or cranny. And this is what bad politicians do best, they create what is perceived as a compromise but in reality the shit-fest will continue a few yards from where they originally wanted it. The MOON is too close to the remains of the Twin Towers for such a travesty to be built, but I always thought that somehow, some way, they'd get their "museum" no matter who protested the very idea of it.
