Previous to 9/11, only a national military was capable of inflicting the kind of damage that the United States had sustained and the fact that it had all been planned and conducted by civilians meant that the rules regarding national security had changed. Today, nine years later we do not remember 9/11 as we should. Instead, Brian Williams and the NBC News team have been focusing on New Orleans and Katrina. NBC did this not to remember the devastation of Katrina, but to lessen the remembrance of the attack on September 11th.
The hope of the various and sundry news teams is that you will be focused on the pain and suffering of the poor residents of Chocolate Town (Mayor Nagin’s words, not mine) and blame Bush all over again as the White House is so fond of doing these days (really, I half expect them to start blaming Lincoln for the economy so that they can accuse the Republican Party of being evil down to their very roots). They even go so far as to demonize the poor pastor who is going to burn a copy of the Koran on the anniversary of the attack. You see, if the public remembered the attack on us as it was intended by the Muslim bastards that planned it and carried it out, then we might be a tad more unforgiving in the building of the victory mosque in New York City.
The fact that Islam wishes to place a mosque on sacred ground does not surprise me. What does surprise me is the absolute lack of a spine and character that American politicians have demonstrated at this aggressive act. Mike Bloomberg basically knelt down at the feet of Islam and kissed the Imam’s toes in an effort to look politically correct and President Obama had basically done the same thing causing American’s to wonder if he really is a Muslim. Despite what the talking heads in the media say, if it walks like a duck, has feathers like a duck and it quacks like a duck, then it is a duck.
If Americans do not wake up and remember who they are and the Muslims succeed in planting the flag of Muhammad at their greatest terror achievement to date, then we are lost as a nation. Had 9/11 occurred in 1971 and the Muslims tried to build a mosque there it would have been all over except for the crying. That is because the libtards had not yet poisoned the soul of the nation and America still remembered who we are. As for me, I don’t give a damn how the Muslims take it if that mosque isn’t built. Let them riot, let them murder, and let them stew.
If Pastor Jones wants to burn the Koran, then I say great and if the Muslim world riots over it then so be it. We are Americans. We have the freedom of speech and if we want to use that right then tough luck. I have seen the Muslim bastards spit on my flag, wipe their feet on my flag, burn my President in effigy, and say all manner of vile and disgusting things about my home. That is their right, but rights work both ways and I don’t give a rat’s furry ass about what the Muslims do when an American exercises the same rights that the Muslims have. If it were me, I wouldn’t burn the Koran. I would print it on rolls of toilet paper and pass the rolls out for use to my congregation and neighbors, but that’s just me.
I remember 9/11 as if it happened yesterday. I remember the loss of sixty of my fellow officers. I remember the loss of 343 firefighters. I remember the loss of my fellow Americans. Most of all, I remember that it was Islam who authored the attack. I remember the Muslims dancing in the streets and laughing as I wept. I remember how Islam said that we deserved our tragedy for our arrogance and I remember my anger. I remember it all and I will never forget.
For me the attack on September 11th resulted in a wound that will never heal. The same can be said of millions of Americans. Each and every idiot that claims that America overreacted, or was too arrogant in our foreign policy or that we did X and therefore we deserved what happened can all go to hell. We did nothing to bring that attack upon ourselves because it was hatred that came to our shores that day and it is a hatred that we should know well. We saw it in the Nazis during World War II and I see it reflected in the eyes of the left.
Remember the fallen. Remember those who did this to us and remember to fight the evil that authored our tragedy. That is the best way to honor the slain and to remember them.
