Peace-Loving Teabaggers - Please "Refute" Hatred And Thuggery

I thought this was interesting - here is an excerpt from an Associated Press article regarding the "Ground Zero Mosque":
The wife of an imam planning an Islamic community center and mosque near ground zero said Sunday that she and her husband have received death threats.

"For the record, my life is under threat," Daisy Khan said during a town hall debate on Islam broadcast on ABC's "This Week" news program.

Khan, who's married to Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, said her husband's life also is under threat but, "We do not walk around with bodyguards because we love this country."

Chief police spokesman Paul Browne confirmed that Khan had told authorities about the telephone threats she'd received.

"There were telephone threats made," Browne said, adding the police department was investigating.
The Islamic center wasn't a big deal unitl the right-wing seized it as a pet cause and pushed scary stories through their media, yet those same individuals who pumped up the lies claimed that they were doing nothing wrong and that Imam Rauf should be feared.  That fear has now led to death threats from the very same people who claim liberal thuggery is out there while conservatives are full of God and morals and everything nice...
