Obama sullies 10-year memorial of September 11th

Americans will join together today — at public memorials, in their homes, churches and synagogues to mark the tenth anniversary of the unthinkable — the most vicious attack on American soil since our nation’s founding.

Ten years ago today, 2,973 people were murdered by 19 radical Muslim terrorists who commandeered two commercial airliners and flew them into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City and another into the Pentagon. The death toll also includes 40 passengers and crew members aboard the fourth hijacked plane, United 93, which crashed in a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, as courageous passengers rushed the cockpit in an attempt to apprehend the hijackers. It was destined for the U.S. Capitol building.

The passing of a decade seems but a blink of an eye. We all remember how we initially heard the reports, saw the video, thinking at first it was a horrible accident — until the second plane penetrated the tower.  It’s unimaginable that few short years after these horrendous acts perpetrated by those who sought to demoralize us, our own U.S. President, Barack Hussein Obama and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg would advocate for a $100 million Islamic cultural center and mosque to be built near the site of the what came to be called Ground Zero.

Equally as bizarre is the White House’s attempt to neutralize the attacks by calling for “observing 9/11 with national service.” In fact Americans are wonderful community volunteers each and every day of the year, in countless ways. Such service is a hallmark of who we are.

But now it’s official: September 11 isn’t about the massacre of nearly 3,000 innocent Americans by Islamic fanatics. It’s about, in Obama’s words, “solving today’s most pressing challenges: clean energy, energy efficiency, health care, education, economic opportunity, veterans and military families.” We recommend Canada Free Press’ Matthew Vadum’s fine commentary titled: Obama’s Defilement of 9/11 and Michelle Malkin’s “All the Wrong 9/11 Lessons.”

The New York Times notes that the White House has issued detailed guidelines to government officials on how to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, with instructions to honor the memory of those who died on American soil but also to recall that Al Qaeda and other extremist groups have since carried out attacks elsewhere in the world, from Mumbai to Manila.

To community organizer Obama, our losses are merely a sub-set of a larger group. Let’s not linger on September 11th or the murderous perpetrators. It’s time to get on with our community service.

    For Obama to turn this solemn day of reflection and mourning into a scouting merit badge opportunity is disrespectful, but typical. As the son and grandson of Muslims, he wants to deflect away from any thought of Muslim terrorists plotting and carrying out this atrocity.

      And again, don’t forget the one, single person who could have prevented 9/11: Jamie Gorelick, Clinton’s assistant attorney general who erected the “wall of separation” so the FBI and the CIA could not share the information they had on the terrorists.

      Had each agency known the other’s data on the 20 terrorists, they all would have been arrested well before boarding those four flights.

      I have not seen one mention of Gore-Lick’s name this entire weekend.

    He’s also got his education “czar” Arne Duncan dumbing down our nation’s schoolchildren in the exact same manner. We must make a commitment to teaching our children historical truths or the United States will be akin to the historical scrubbing and revisionism that has taken place in China and the former Soviet Union.

  3. Overtaxed1 says:

    Obama’s cold and callous reading of the Scriptures this day clearly displayed that this part of the memorial was very distasteful to him.
    His grimace at every line he read told of his callousness toward the Bible and lack of feeling for the entire event as well. His wife’s often sour face could not be missed by those who watched carefully.
    Quite a contrast from the tears and sadness reflected in the faces of President and Mrs. Bush.

    • Frankly Speaking says:

      Yes. And in a theatrically fake editorial today, written as though there would still be newspapers (especially the already dying Arizona Republic) 100 years from 9/11/01, the Republic jumps ahead a century and blames the bloody brutality and destruction on President George W. Bush. Not a word about Islamic fundamentalists hijacking four commercial airliners with the intent of committing mass murders.

  4. Rambling Rose says:

    I’m horrified and sickened each time I see the photos of the towers being hit and falling. Still I believe we need to see them more often. Our NEA/Union driven public schools are not teaching truth, but refocusing on Obama’s advice of turning this into a day of public service rather than remembrance. Sadly our children have attention spans of fleas. Even adults are more hooked on sports, celebrities and trendy television programming than news affecting our lives and future. We are in a sad state with a Marxist leading us down the river. I pray he will be defeated in 2012.

    • Seen It All says:

      Do more than pray, Rose. People have prayed while unspeakable atrocities happened and they and their children were still doomed. Action is what is needed.

      You need to get involved. Become a Republican Precinct Committeeman. Join a tea party. Educate yourself and then you can educate others. Our future is at stake as never before. Prayers are fine, but throughout history violence has brutalized those who prayed for peace. Get off your knees and start working!

      Watch this Tom Hanks produced short on actual events of September 11, 2001, to see the spectacular effects of what people can actually accomplish with ACTIONS!! This video is evidence of how God moves people to service:

    I suppose, for a Muslim, the significance of 9/11 is entirely different than for the typical American. Imagine how significant it must actually be for Obuma! I wonder if America will elect him again!
