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.
