TAKE BACK THE MEMORIAL: HEAT’S ON

The battle over Ground Zero continues, and the public relations master for the Blame America side is losing his cool.

– Check out this must-see segment from the O’Reilly Factor Tuesday night in which Fox & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade describes an off-air confrontation between 9/11 family member Debra Burlingame–who blew the whistle on the plans to Soros-ize Ground Zero–and Dick Tofel, president of the planned International Freedom Center.

– Note the call yesterday by NYC councilman Alan Gerson to put a freeze on construction of the IFC and built it somewhere else:

“The families have raised legitimate questions as to whether or not that type of museum should be in the memorial quadrant,” said Councilman Alan Gerson. “We should put the Freedom Center Museum briefly on hold. We need to rethink this before we proceed,” Gerson told The [New York] Post following a hearing on Ground Zero reconstruction.

– And read today’s NYPost editorial blasting Tofel’s spin:

Richard Tofel, president of the Inter national Freedom Center, went on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends” Tuesday to answer, yet again, charges that the IFC will be a forum for America-bashing.

But his on-air claims contradicted his recent, seemingly reassuring, Wall Street Journal article on the topic. And his off-air behavior afterwards raised even more questions about his judgment.

No wonder so many folks don’t trust the project.

No wonder folks like City Councilman Alan Gerson are demanding that the project be put on hold.

Tofel simply doesn’t speak straight.

Exactly what Debra Burlingame has warned us all along.

Take Back the Memorial continues to follow the latest developments. More than 11,000 have signed the website petition to keep politics out of Ground Zero.

Keep the heat on. They’re starting to sweat.

Update: Just noticed this statement about the 9/11 memorial from NY George Pataki buried in the New York Times…

“No one is going to turn it into something that is a negative statement about America and our belief in freedom, so long as I am governor of this state.”

They’re listening.
