Commemorating Sept. 11, 2001: Teach your children the truth

 

Politically correct schools are not teaching about this carnage

Today marks the 17th year since 2,973 people were murdered by terrorists who commandeered two commercial airliners and flew them into the World Trade Center Twin Towers in New York City. Another airliner crashed into the Pentagon. The death toll 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.

 Along with our American citizens, people from 90 other countries were viciously slaughtered in the attacks committed by Islamo-fascist extremists.

These monsters,* here on easily exploitable foreign student visas, were able to commit this evil against Americans on our own soil because our government deplorably failed to enforce our borders, laws, and national sovereignty. This malfeasance has continued. Only President Trump, who ran and was elected on his commitment to a border wall, has  made this issue a resonating theme.

Far-left AZ Democrat David Garcia is currently campaigning for governor on his opposition to both a wall and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), which he has stated his intent to dismantle.

In these times where striking unionist teachers walk out on over 800,000 Arizona students for a week, the obligation falls on parents and grandparents to teach the facts of September 11th. They are not getting this important information in school. It doesn’t fit the left’s ‘celebration of diversity’ playbook and focus on “Islamophobia.”

Yet even left-of-center NPR acknowledges, according to one survey, only about 20 states include anything in depth about the events of that fateful day in their high school social studies curriculum. And when they are taught, it’s often through a narrow lens. Education Week an educrat publication headlines: “Majority of States’ Standards Don’t Mention 9/11.”

The 9/11 Memorial & Museum can be seen here It’s Teach + Learn pages are critically important since too many young adults today are abysmally lacking basic information about the single deadliest incident in the history of the United States.

Philosopher George Santayana is noted for saying, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” Today’s PC educrats reject his wisdom.

 *H/T Creeping Shiria depicts the murderous Muslim extremists, referring to the barbarous hijackers as the “Magnificent 19.”

    It’s doubtful there was ever a concern that young Americans would be damaged by hearing the events leading up to our involvement in World War II. Americans were not raised as “snowflakes.” They enlisted, following the Hollywood celebrities who dropped their careers midstream to defend our country. Today’s celebs are mostly liberal extremists who follow the example of American apologist Barack Obama, and denigrate the USA, which represents a beacon of freedom to those who live in repressed societies.

    Under educated students, taught by bottom of the rung teachers (who followed a 24 year old admitted socialist leading their strike), say they support socialism over capitalism. Were do you think they get those ideas?

    There should be a separate course dedicated to teaching the horrors of 9/11. It’s amazing how weak we’ve become, but the education establishment has been hard at work undermining our strength by teaching relativism and demeaning our Founders as all white men wearing short pants and wigs.

    This video shows the jubilation within the Arab world following the 9/11 attacks. These are our Muslim friends. They were clapping, grinning and handing out candy to their children! This is important to remember.

    Did you know that on September 11, 2001 there was a massive hurricane headed toward NYC?
    Hurricane Erin.
    But citizens did not know. In fact, it was a beautiful, sunny day in NYC and people were going about their day in the usual fashion until approx.. 8:56 A.M.
    Hurricane Erin, a category 3 hurricane, during mid-morning on 9/11/01. The eye has an unusual appearance. Notice how close Hurricane Erin is to New York City. Why didn’t the morning news inform about the category 3 hurricane that was headed straight for NYC on 9/11?

    The satellite photos on this have been taken down from the internet.

    Why was Hurricane Erin (category 3) travelling in a straight line towards NYC for 4+ days, from September 7th-11th 2001, yet there were no warnings by most corporate news broadcasts in the days leading up to 9/11, or on the morning of 9/11?

    Hurricane Erin was similar in size to Hurricane Katrina, and hurricanes rarely head straight for NYC, so why weren’t we warned by most corporate news outlets that Hurricane Erin was heading straight for such a densely populated city?

    Astonishingly, Hurricane Erin reached its closest point to NYC on the morning of September 11th,
    before it did a ~150° turn away from its straight-line trajectory later that day and headed back out to sea.

    Astonishingly.

    Additionally, on 9-11-01, our military was completely involved in a planned NORAD exercise called Vigilant Guardian and Global Guardian. Wargames to simulate a full-on nuclear war. Even our submarines were involved. The operation called for communications outages, which further complicated matters.

    Please, also remember the Americans who lost their lives in Benghazi on September 11, 2012.
    What happened to Ambassador Stevens is horrific.
    You were never told. But there is photographic evidence.

    SRAZ has once again integrated important information about September 11, 2001 and the lack of attention paid to this unparalleled, nightmarish event today, just 17 years later. Today’s teens were born too late to have any recollection and the schools are too afraid of the questions raised about Muslims to teach it .

    There were no such restrictions governing the teaching of World War II history when I was growing up. We knew the Japanese bombed our docked ships, killing thousands in Pearl Harbor. We learned that Germany was under the control of Nazis, systematically starving, dong grotesque ‘medical” experiments, and ultimately murdering millions of Jews and others in concentration camp ovens and “showers” that spewed deadly gas instead of water.

    We were not damaged by the truth. We learned from it. Eighty-plus years later, after the US Marshall Plan rebuilt destroyed areas and many of the economies of the war ravaged cities, costing us $billions in 1940’s and 50’s cash, we travel to the those counties and welcome their descendants who desire citizenship. Keeping our American youth ignorant of the full scope of September 11, 2001 is lunacy.

    If, God forbid, we ever lose our great country, it will be due in large measure to the increasingly leftist Democrat party and the educrat establishment that is failing, I believe purposely, to educate America’s students. The two are actually one and the same.

    They teach transgenderism to kindergartners and since here in Arizona they follow a socialist rabblerouser themselves, teach that as a preferable economic system to capitalism. Bernie Sanders won a large chunk of the millennial vote. Why do you think that is? The simple answer is that they are not taught the superiority of capitalism and don’t realize that socialism means you own nothing. What incentive it there to excel? None! Smoke weed and dig ditches and you’ll earn the same as an engineer or medical doctor.

    Take your kids out of government schools. Arizona is a leader in charter schools and we have some of the best in the country, The liberals hate them.
