The Politicization of 9/11
A couple of weeks ago, in the Wall Street Journal opinion-editorial, Debra Burlingame, who is the sister of Flight 77 (the flight that crashed into the Pentagon) pilot, Charles Burlingame, wrote an article describing how the International Freedom Center isn't just planning a 9/11 Memorial on Ground Zero that honor American citizens who lost their lives on that Tuesday morning. No....they are planning on building a memorial that will include history and propaganda that have nothing to do with 9/11! Apparently it is backed by a "who's who" of the navel-gazing, hand-wringing, self-loathing, self-hating, "blame America first" crowd. The Memorial will lecture us on American genocide, slavery, and civil rights "abuses" post-9/11, including Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo, and the Patriot Act
. Read Michelle Malkin's piece, and this one from The New York Post
.They want to use 9/11 as a platform to talk about human rights abuses?! I say, the IFC backers should be taken out to the woodshed, drawn and quartererd.....then lynch 'em! (in case this last paragraph should be "abused" as an example of the "vitriol" coming from the right-wing noise machine, please note that I kid.....mostly).
