Nicholas Kristof writes an amazing editorial about the subject here.
I find the issue highly-annoying and overplayed in the news but it’s a relevant issue for Die Die Hipster and of course, the main focus, Diehipster.com. Blocking the mosque is about hate – it’s about not taking in a new building because of stereotypes surronding it. Just as Diehipster hates Hipsters moving in because they are all annoying and spoiled and gross, the U.S. hates Muslims moving in because they are all terrorists and violent. Of course a Mosque is a peaceful place – and very very few Muslims are terrorists, yet our paranoia continues just as the hate still continues on Diehipster over hipsters. Doesn’t hating on hipsters get old after awhile? I swear, I’m pretty bored of it after three weeks.
