Over the weekend, exactly nine years after the 9/11 attacks, thousands lined the streets surrounding ground zero with a common cause -- fight the mosque! -- and a common enemy, radical Islam. (Although the "radical" part appears to be optional these days.) While cable networks provided a mostly sanitized take of the day's events, the reality was much different, with crude anti-Islamic sentiments ruling the day.

The following slide show is a sampling of the literature circulated at the rally.
