Couric: Mosque Opponents 'Tear Down Towers' Of American Values

"There is a debate to be had about the sensitivity of building this center so close to Ground Zero. But we can not let fear and rage tear down the towers of our core American values." -- Katie Couric's Notebook, 8-23-10 [emphasis added]
Hey Norah: Katie's stealin' yer lines!

As I noted here, last week Norah O'Donnell accused mosque opponents of acting "like the people who attacked America and killed 3,000 people."

In her "Notebook" of yesterday, Katie Couric sounded the same theme.  Couric employed WTC imagery to claim that "fear and rage" [translation: animated mosque opponents] were threatening "to tear down the towers" of our core American values.

Subtle, Katie; very subtle.  Oppose the mosque?  You're really no better than Mohammed Atta.  Good to know how you feel about so many of your fellow Americans.
