Flight 93 Memorial Design Should Spark More Outrage Than New Missile Defense Agency Logo
Bob McCarty Writes ^ | 2-24-10 | Bob McCarty

Earlier today, Drudge Report correctly pointed out similarities that exist between the new logo of the U.S. Missile Defense Agency (below left) and the logo used by the presidential campaign of Barack Obama (below right). It's another design similarity, however, that deserves more attention and should spark more outrage among Americans.

Earlier today, Drudge Report correctly pointed out similarities that exist between the new logo of the U.S. Missile Defense Agency (below left) and the logo used by the presidential campaign of Barack Obama (below right). It's another design similarity, however, that deserves more attention and should spark more outrage among Americans.

The design of the Flight 93 Memorial in Shanksville, Pa. (below left), is almost identical in appearance to the Islamic crescent moon and star symbol (below right) -- yes, the same iconic symbol adorning the flags of no fewer than 11 Muslim countries around the world today.

Nine days after reading about it in NewsBusters, I began sharing my feelings with the world Oct. 6, 2007, in a post about the controversy surrounding the Flight 93 Memorial. Since then, I've been trying to draw attention to the memorial that's allegedly intended to honor the heroic passengers aboard United Flight 93. I use the word "allegedly", because it appears the memorial's design is paying homage to the Muslim terrorists aboard Flight 93 instead of the passengers.

Visit the NPS web site for the memorial, and you'll be challenged to find any imagery that shows an overhead view of the site. Same goes for the private Honor Flight 93 web site set up by the folks raising funds to help pay for the site. Apparently, the people involved in the project recognize the design similarities. In addition, however, they don't want members of the general public to see a "bird's eye" view of it -- lest they get upset like I did.

Before you contact your elected officials in Washington, D.C., to express your outrage, learn more about this insult to the real heroes aboard United Flight 93 that day almost nine years ago, read my other posts below which appear in chronological order:

If you can’t erect a genuine memorial to Flight 93 then abandon this obscenity.

If they build it to the design presented it won’t last 10 days!

Why aren’t they comparing the crescent moon to the new missile defense logo. Now that is an eerie comparison.

I’ve known about the Flight 93 Memorial design and agree it is an anathema.

But, as an aside, not only does the new US Missile defense logo bear a resemblance to Obama’s campaign logo, it also shares the crescent moon and star symbol. Even Pepsi wouldn’t go that far...

By the way, did we get a president or a graphics designer?

Meh, nevermind.

Please...

As you can see, the crescent has been utilized in design for some time. If your going to gripe about something, at least gripe about something worthwhile.

It's psychological warfare via subliminal perception - it's their way of saying, "Yes, Obama's an illegally-born Muslim, we're conspiring Marxist subversives, and the weak-minded, supplicating dhimmis who believed our rhetoric about 'hope and change' are too slow-witted to realize it. We will destroy your country, your laws, your culture, and your spirit. Then, we will remake it all to our own liking and control, and there isn't a damned thing you can do about any of it. We enjoy rubbing your noses in it, capitalist dogs!"

The bastards know exactly what they're doing.

The old one (below) has the red and yellow colors of communist China and Soviet Union. Also, a missile shooting through what could symbolize a red communist star and/or intercepted Soviet or ChiCom missile. Maybe Obami the commie just couldn't handle this imagery, or was asked by his comrades overseas to replace it.

I clicked on each link and the page came up “This thread has been pulled”. I then went to your site and links were OK. No other posters had trouble?

I was thinking about this earlier while driving, and have come up with an entirely different interpretation of the new missile defense agency logo. If this interpretation catches on, it will result in almost certain abandonment of the new logo.

IIRC, the star normally represents where Mecca is, or is a directional marker for same. The striped lines going directly to the center of the star obviously represent a missile strike to that which is represented by the star.

Yes crescents have been used as symbols before. That does not mean that radical Islam isn't trying sneak their symbol into the memorial. Islamic crescents are not the same as natural crescents like you would see on the Moon. Islamic crescents are usually a circle within a circle because they want to distinguish their crescents from other crescents.

From Wikipedia:

"Note that in the case of an astronomical crescent, such as the moon observed in the sky, the outer arc will be 180° (a half-circle as previously mentioned), while the Islamic crescent symbol (Arabic هلال hilāl) is often shown with an outer arc significantly greater than 180°"

Crescent


When a person is facing into a crescent in a mosque, they are looking in the direction of Mecca. The same is true of the memorial crescent. It is aligned with Mecca.

You can call it griping if you want to but Obama and his kind are using Islamic crescents as their logos. To them it is a victory to sneak their symbolism into our government. Just like the mosque they want to build at Ground Zero is meant to be a symbol of their victory there.

Do a search for "stylized Islamic crescent"

Let me get this straight: You’re commenting in September about a post I made in February, even though you didn’t even sign up until April? Really? Get a grip...
