Obama and Our 9/11 Trauma
American Thinker ^ | September 11, 2011 | Stella Paul

Posted on 09/11/2012 9:28:05 AM PDT by Trafalgar123

Where did the idea of Obama come from? Let's examine an obvious, yet overlooked source: the rubble of the Twin Towers. 9/11 was the most traumatic day in American history, and its horrors left deep gashes in our national soul. We stumbled around in pain and confusion for years, groping for a magical salve to heal our wounds -- and there, suddenly, was Barack Hussein Obama.

As we turn our gaze from our current Obama-induced agonies to remember the terror attacks ten years ago, let's do ourselves the favor of honesty and admit how tightly the two are connected.

On that fatal Tuesday, as the World Trade Center and Pentagon lay in ruins, President George Bush spoke to the American people, with simple words that pierced the heart of our new situation: "Freedom itself was attacked this morning... And freedom will be defended."

But as it turned out, millions of Americans were not ready to defend freedom. Despite the "United We Stand" posters plastered everywhere, Americans almost immediately divided into two irreconcilable camps: those willing to understand the nature of our enemy and those who wanted to deny it, at all cost.

Within days of the attacks, a friend coolly informed me, "the people in the Twin Towers deserved it." Still reeling from that shock, I almost lost it when another friend admiringly compared bin Laden to George Washington. Soon thereafter, a well-known academic in my circle complained that the sudden outpouring of patriotism made her sick.

The main thing to remember today is this. We were attacked for our religious beliefs by Wahhabi Sunnis ,which comprise about 110 million Muzzies. They killed 3000 Americans in NYC and Washington DC. Then Wahhabis ,like Nidal Hassan, the bearded protected killer of 13 and shooter of 43 more at Ft hood, was allowed to roam free in our military by political correctness delayed in his prosecution for political expedience,instead of being rounded up and deported as illegals or traitors. We are so stupid. But focus on who they were, not this maudlin crap about “coming together”.

They killed 3,000. We should have killed 300,000 of them. One or two nukes would have done the trick.

But what did we do? We declared a “war” on terrorism that we’ll never win because we’ll never be willing to do the above. I told my wife this very thing the day the war in Iraq started.

And “we” (no freepers, hopefully) went to theaters and yelled “Too soon! Too soon!” when the trailer came on about 9/11. We are a nation of whimps.

Peace Through Superior Firepower!

Our day is coming. This country is doomed and will totally collapse. It will not be pretty but out of the smoke and ruin may come new leaders not willing to live LIES.

I’d like to know if the usurper was laughing and cheering for the planes that day. I’d also like to know if Moochelle was proud of the terroists since she wasn’t proud of America in those days.

Hey, I’m trademarking that, lol.

I remembered seeing an event on TV with Jesse Jackson soon after 9/11. There were no US flags and no hint of patriotism--it was all about his usual grievances.

I attended a local event soon after 9/11 (a few dozen people present). There were a couple of Muslim immigrants (one from Bosnia, one from Yemen) who strongly condemned the attacks and I saw no reason to doubt their sincerity. There was also a black American woman there who just wanted to talk about her grievances against white America.

Who knows what Obama's first reaction was to the attacks--this is a terrible crime against America? or this is a case of chickens coming home to roost?

I had been looking for something to answer those dippy "coexist" bumper stickers you see. Found this on Facebook a few days ago - it fills the bill nicely, doesn't it?

It’s perfect.

Now I have to get to OfficeMax for more sticker stock.

I don't need to reflect on this possibility. Miserable 60s retreads and their followers are predictably anti-American. I'm sure Barack and Mooch celebrated heavily that day.
