NBC and CBS have refused to air an ad created by the National Republican Trust PAC which makes absolutely no bones about conflating the 9/11 terrorists and every other Muslim in the world. "On September 11, they declared war against us, and to celebrate that murder of 3,000 Americans, they want to build a monstrous thirteen-story mosque at ground zero," a solemn narrator says as images of a plane crashing into the World Trade Center and a man falling from one of the towers flash onscreen. If the zombie hijackers are building this mosque, then yeah, that's kind of alarming. Pretty sure it's different guys, though.
