Skip to comments.Obama on 9/11: Get Over It
Posted on 09/12/2010 9:13:52 AM PDT by Zakeet
Obamas remarks on 9/11 were about what you would expect from a president who ridiculed his countrymen for overreacting to the most lethal terrorist attack on our soil and who cant manage to utter the worlds Islamic fundamentalists or jihadists.
Really, lets not dwell on the bad stuff, he tells us. On this day, its perhaps natural to focus on the images of that awful morning images seared into our souls. Its tempting to dwell on the final moments of the loved ones whose lives were taken so cruelly. Yes, it is tempting because that is what the day is all about, to recall the diabolical work of our enemies and recommit ourselves to the defense of our civilization. But no, in his book, its about diversity training: They were white and black and brown men and women and some children made up of all races, many faiths. They were Americans and people from far corners of the world.
As for the Islamist fascists who killed so many and made orphans and widows of many more, he has this to say:
It was not a religion that attacked us that September day it was al-Qaeda, a sorry band of men which perverts religion. And just as we condemn intolerance and extremism abroad, so will we stay true to our traditions here at home as a diverse and tolerant nation. We champion the rights of every American, including the right to worship as one chooses as service members and civilians from many faiths do just steps from here, at the very spot where the terrorists struck this building.
Oh, good grief. Yes, it was a religion fundamentalist Islam that attacked us. Al-Qaeda is one organization but the jihadists attack because of religious beliefs.

You stupid $*%&# Freepers need to get over it
May I be the first to say, “FUBO”!
I am so SICK of this arrogant piece of crap. 2012 is too long to wait!
” I am so SICK of this arrogant piece of crap. 2012 is too long to wait! “
4 years too long
It is absolutely time to consider impeachment for this man who has violated every spirit of his oath. He is a traitor and needs to be removed from office.
Wait, if we are a tolerant nation why are we told over and over how intolerant we are? My head is starting to spin.
What did anyone expect?
It's irrational to tolerate evil.Islam is evil. It uses force to violate natural rights to achieve a goal, world domination, which all Muslims believe in and agree with, not just the terrorists.
The way I see it, this is yet another institution that is being undermined.
Not only is The Won attacking our legal and financial institutions, but also those days in our history that we hold most sacred.
Actually, Obama has become creepy.
“tempting to dwell on the final moments of the loved ones”
Barry commands that we wipe our past clean, empty our minds and submit to his reeducation. The guy was doing better when he was on his four month vacation. Every time he shares his opinions he digs himself deeper into the hole with the American public. He seems to have nothing but contempt for anyone outside his Harvard educated coterie of lefty employees and journalists.
...unless that American is burning a Koran or being critical of Islam in any way.
Good article ping!
Glad some on our side get it. Don’t be confused by Obama’s slights of hand. Obama and the left want to use President Bush’s words about not being at war with Islam as a cover for their complete appeasement and complicity when it comes to radical Islam. At least with President Bush, one knew he was trying to be diplomatic in his words after 911. With Obama, one almost has to wonder if he is not part of the coming Islamic caliphate designs for the world.(/part sarcasm..not sure what Obama is...just like the rest of Americans aren’t really sure.)
Yesterday, after Obama’s patronizing speech to our country telling us not to dwell on the images and horror of 911 anymore, I decided to spend almost the entire day and night watching everything on TV about that evil day. The history channel had a griping and horrifying special. I also spent time online reading and looking at pictures from that day and praying for the lost souls. I shed quite a few tears and sometimes raw,seething and righteous anger boiled up inside. My bet is that many people did the same thing and my hope is that many more will in the future. 911 isn’t a day to remember to be good community organizers or to work for some leftist greenie cause..IT IS A DAY TO REMEMBER THE EVIL THAT VISITED US THAT DAY,TO PRAY FOR OUR LOST COUNTRYMEN AND HEROS AND TO RENEW OUR COMMITMENT TO FREEDOM AND THE PROTECTION OF OUR COUNTRY AGAINST ALL ENEMIES..FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC.
He wants that mosque, doesn’t he?
Maybe like zero should wipe away the “dreams of my father” that he didn’t even know?
We are all paying every day for his father’s crap - that is if BHO Sr was in fact his father.
I'm thinking the same thing. What is up with his mouth? I've never seen a person's mouth like that.
Jennifer Rubin gets it. Love the Scalia quote towards the end too.
This is the tautology the Left is trapped into. They tell us to be tolerant of those among us who are not tolerant - Muslims. Yet, they themselves are not tolerant of Christians or conservatives.
The logical pretzels being used to defend the Left’s position are starting to trouble even casual observers of the political scene in middle America.
Wow, that was a great quote from Scalia in the article. Worthy of parents passing it on to their children!
You’re right. The hypocrisy has got to be becoming obvious to even the stupidest among us.
“Maybe like zero should wipe away the dreams of my father that he didnt even know?”
haha, yes, I forgot that Barry had this penchant for Oprah sytle deep, navel-gazing about his own past. What a hypocrite.
This is a day when all Americans from every walk of life unite
in our resolve for justice and peace.
America has stood down enemies before, and we will do so this time.
None of us will ever forget this day.
Yet, we go forward to defend freedom and all that is good and just in our

"In this day and age (Islam) will kill other people.
That threat is here.
The American people must understand that.
It is a reality of today's world".
I learned something last night. It has to do with dates.
This one has to to with April 27th.
The overfly of Manhattan by Air Force 1 with the military escort made three passes. One of the comments from an article I read: I, too, was outside on the JC waterfront, just below Exchange Place, when I heard a loud screech. It almost sounded like a missile or rocket (but was probably just the fighter plane, on further relection). Out on the pier, you always see helicopters flying up and down the river, and the occasional small plane a little higher, but this was different. A few seconds later, we look up to see a very low flying jumbo jet with a fighter in what appeared to be a chase position (BTW, there are no markings or insignia on the BOTTOM of that plane). We looked down the street to see it banking south over Jersey City before disappearing behind the buildings. Emergency landing at Newark Airport, maybe, I thought? Then a minute or two later, it comes around again, from the south, down around the Verazano Bridge. We didnt see it coming in until it was almost right on top of us and started banking right around the Goldman building. It was damn close! People had come out of the buildings and started running north along the pier, thinking it was going to crash, and I cant say I blame them for thinking so. It was somewhat chaotic, to say the least!
The date of the overfly was April 27, 2009.
April 27, 2009, was 204 years to the 1st day of the battle of Derna (or Derne). The Battle of Derna is considered the turning point of the First Barbary War, which we have immortalized in these words: ...to the shores of Tripoli. Those words are from the Marines Hymn.
The battle began at approximately 2:45 pm local time.
The victory that day (reaffirmed twice until mid-May, after repulsing efforts to retake the city) marked the first time the US flag flew over a foreign battlefield.
Louis Caldera took responsibility for the Manhattan flyover of AF1 and resigned.
Louis Caldera was Director of the White House Military Office from January 20, 2009, until May 22, 2009, and served as the 17th United States Secretary of the Army from July 2, 1998 until January 20, 2001.
I believe what New York and we witnessed on 4/27/2009, was the symbolic reenactment of the battle of Derna @ Tripoli, in reverse, complete with 3 passes over the site, and, the ‘planting’ of the flag by a foreigner in command on uS soil, perhaps with a sighting for the mihrabs location at the GZ mosque. At the direction and with the support of the sitting President of the United States, as evidenced by presence and actions of an Air Force One 747.
The ‘Won.’ The Proud. The Base. (’Al Qaeda’).
On 9/11/11. maybe Obama will dedicate the Shanksville mihrab and march from Ground Zero to the new ‘Community Center’ at ‘51 Park Place’ (look up that Chapter in the Koran). He might even lead some of the prayers in Arabic himself; after all, he knows them all.
A Sept. 11 first responder filed a $350 million suit against the developers of a proposed cultural center and mosque near Ground Zero, calling it a "nuisance," "a terror risk" and "an assault."
The strongly worded suit, which was brought by a former volunteer firefighter from Westchester named Vincent Forras. who helped at the Trade Center site after 9/11, with the assistance of the conservative group Freedom Watch. It charges developer Feisal Abdul Rauf and Park 51, the organization behind the mosque, "are the front persons and in charge of operations for interests tied to terrorism," and "are believers in radical Islam and its jihad against America and AmeriCn interests." Theyve strongly denied those allegations.
The suit, which seeks class action status, calls the proposed center "a monument to the jihadists victory over American ideals of freedom and democracy, [and] a desecration of the terrible sacrifice made by those innocents attacked."
It claims news of the plans for the site have been worsening first responders injuries. Forras and others "symptoms and illnesses have significantly increased since defendants sought to erect an Islamic Center and Mosque on or near Ground Zero," and the "emotional, mental and physical pain resulting from defendants actions in planning and taking concrete steps to build the Ground Zero Mosque are intolerable."
The suit seeks damages for nuisance, emotional distress and assault. it says the legal papers were written by Forras, and that controversial Freedom Watch founder and lawyer Larry Klayman was acting as his counsel. A rep for Park 51 didnt immediately return an e-mail for comment.
It’s starting to look like that is a better option. He’s dumb but not necessarily evil, well other than being an evil dem that is.
I loathe this Muslim Pimp. I am frickin’ sick and tired of him telling us what to do, forget about 911, be tolerant of evil, etc. There is nothing remotely American about this imposter.
I did the same, penelopesire. I immersed myself in the events of 9/11 again and could hardly go to sleep last night for the nightmares. About B.O.’s speech—it all depends on what the meaning of “diabolical work of our enemies” means. To him, it may not mean islamofascists at all. Perhaps he is referring to other “enemies”—you know, the bitter gun-and-religion clingers. Also, he refers to al Qaeda as a “sorry band of men.” Makes it sound like Robin Hood and his “band” of relatively harmless n’er-do-wells who, like Little John and Friar Tuck, occasionally work their mischief.
So glad this is happening! For those that might want to donate to a worthy cause:
We need to start gumming up their commie/islamist works with all the lawsuits we can muster!
Ah, yes. Soebarkah.
I love your passion and every single one of your creative and dead-on graphics.
Today, nine years after that horrible event, I still feel intense anger when watching a pre-9/11 movie and a pan shot of NYC includes the magnificent Twin Towers.
The 9/11 documentary mentioned above contains the only known film of the first plane hitting the tower. This past week I rented United 93 from Netflix. Highly recommend it.
I hope one day to visit this 911 Monument on September 11th.
“Also, he refers to al Qaeda as a sorry band of men. Makes it sound like Robin Hood and his band of relatively harmless ner-do-wells who, like Little John and Friar Tuck, occasionally work their mischief.”
Excellent observation. Obama’s double speak and leftist banality is getting so tiresome...not to mention downright dangerous for our country. He seemed so cold and bloodless yesterday. I guarantee you that Obama has never spent an entire day or even more than an hour reviewing the evil events of that day in 2001. Obama was busy working up his community organizers and leftist agitators in Ill. that day to protest any ‘retaliation wars’ shortly after 911.
We could probably follow the UN Oil For Food scandal(Saddam paying westerners and officials to end the Iraq sanctions) right to his Ill. senate office if we dug deep enough. Obama,his handlers and syncophants are hiding many disturbing secrets about his real agenda and loyalties.
You bitter clingers with your guns and bibles....
FUBO and the camel you rode in on.
I was just mentioning this to a friend. I honestly do not believe he has ever shed a tear for the loss of life on 911 or any other day. I honestly do not think he is capable of feeling other people's pain, and that is SCARY. Tons of people are losing their jobs, homes, and dreams, and he's livin' it up in high style...nobody who is capable of empathy would do such things.
Well, you and penelopesire can count me in as well. I did the exact same thing as you both did and stayed up until 1 A.M. watching. There were also two very good 9-11 related programs on Fox News Ch. that I’d not seen before last night. Most horrifying incidents seem to fade somewhat with the passing of time, but each year since 9-11 happened, it’s as if I’d never seen it before...and it still HURTS just as much as it did the day it happened!!!
You’ve probably heard this before, but malignant narcissists and sociopaths are incapable of real empathy. Obama has more than ‘political issues’...he has some dark and disturbing mental issues as well.
Many good post on this thread. Saw video yesterday I hadn’t seen before. Most horrifying I’ve seen. Wish we could do a Clockwork Orange thing on 0bama and force him to watch while we play the Islamic call to prayer.
I’ll bet Zero and Moochelle both shouted “allah akbar!”
