Olbermann: Republicans have hijacked 9/11
MSNBC ^ | 09/10/2008 | By Keith Olbermann

Posted on 09/11/2008 7:11:00 AM PDT by GLH3IL

But 9/11 has become a brand name. A Republican campaign slogan. Propaganda of the lowest form. 9/11 has become 9/11 with a trademark logo.

9/11 (TM) has sustained a president who long ago should have been dismissed, or impeached. It has kept him and his gang of financial and constitutional crooks in office without — literally — any visible means of support.

The political party in office at the time of the attacks, at the local, state and national levels, the party which uniformly ignored the warnings and the presidential administration already through twenty percent of its first term and no longer wet behind the ears, have not only thus far escaped any blame for the malfeasance and criminal neglect that allowed the attacks to occur, but that presidency and that party, have managed to make it seem as if the other political party would be solely and irredeemably responsible for any similar catastrophe in the future.

And his childish, squealing, braying, Tourette’s-like repetition of 9/11 (TM), was greeted not as conclusive evidence that he is consumed by massive guilt - hard-earned guilt, in fact but rather as some kind of political tour-de-force, an endorsement of your Vice Presidential nominee, a rookie governor , a facile and slick con artist.

All of this, sadistically disrespecting the dead of New York, and Washington, and Shanksville.

And yet of course the exact moment in which Sen. McCain’s Republicans showed the nation exactly how far they have fallen from the Better Angels of Mr. Lincoln’s Nature, came the next night.

What we got was not a tribute to the dead of 9/11, nor even a tribute to the responders, or the singularity of purpose we all felt. The Republicans gave us sociological pornography, a virtual snuff film.

I, sadly, caught some of these sickening remarks last night as I was channel hopping. I was furious at what little bit of it I did hear.

The libs of this country, through their mouthpiece, have alot of audacity to speak this way! It was the failure of their guy, der Schlickmeister, whose administration failed to act against terrorist aggression against our nation. It was Jimmy Carter's ignorance that allowed the Islamic fundamentalists to gain the confidence to openly challege us. It was Gore, Kerry, and Obama that openly declared that we had already lost this fight, that had declared that we could never win, that had openly declared that we were at fault for that happended today 7 years ago.

Olbermann, it is sick SOB's like YOU that continue to give our enemies aid and comfort. It is bovine manure like YOU that hate America so much that you would rather see us fail than prevail in our global fight against terrorism. It is scum like YOU that will, ultimately in the light of history, be proven to be bloviating fools that should have been sent to prison for treason against the American people.

Obama and Biden need to hold a press conference today where they read this verbatim. That’ll knock Palin off the front page.

I called this one, YEARS AGO...

And it’s going to come in the middle of EVERY ELECTION SEASON from now until a DEM President outlaws the observation of it in the interest of “healing”....

It reminds people that America really does have enemies, and that is never good for Democrats.

Olbermann....., just remember, words are not just words as OBambi would have ‘us’ believe. There have been many ‘words’ spoken in this election year by many which will not be soon forgotten.

Olbermann, soon you will realize that this fine country will speak for herself.

Sure, Keith. Why should we worry about a few thousand dead Americans, or a vicious attack on our way of life? After all, Bush looked pretty damned good after 9/11 - clearly the whole thing was simply designed to boost the Republican Party.

They used to call it ‘lunacy’. Today, I guess it gets you a cushy network job. :-P

If the standard of ‘giving aid and comfort to the enemy’ could be applied, Olbermann would be behind bars right now.

I will never voluntarily watch him or support him in any way.

I second that. If Republicans have hijacked 9/11 then Democrats caused 9/11 by their wussie look the other way policies.

Liberals had no idea how much they loved Muslims until 9/11. Now they're tripping over themselves to praise them and elect them into office whenever they have an opportunity.

September 11 is a reminder to every lock-step progressive punk-ass like Olbermann that his party and its so-called principles have been, are, and always will be a Miserable Failure (TM).

I bet they all start cringing inside and out when the calendar turns to September. Good.

I wonder at a network so biased that it puts an, obviously, mentally ill man up as its spokesman.

It is too easy to dismiss Olberman as just another leftist traitor (which he is), the public must see that this man truly has issues that someone in his family should force him to deal with- an “intervention”, if you will.

But for the love of heaven, take this man off the air. He embarrasses himself and the network.

Am I reading this right?

Bush was in office barely 8 months out of a 48 month term (16.6%), and the Democrats were still blocking his secondary appointments out of spite for winning the election (along with holding up his transistion funding during Gore's lawsuit).

Furthermore, the terrorists were here practicing since 1998 (75% into the Clinton administration), so who wasn't minding the store?

That's an old sign. Underneath 9/11 it reads “ religion.” As with religion, the Democrats abandoned major aspects of what America is. It is illogical to say someone has “hijacked” what you have abandoned.

Olbermann shouldn't worry. Liberals will have their own 911 on election night when they see the Magic Negro's bus with smoke pouring from the windows and supporters jumping from the windows to their death. There will be memorials. There will be the reading of the names of the DBM elite whose whole world came crashing down right in front of them. Each election night we will see the repeating footage of the smoking Magic Negro bus. Liberals will have their own 911.

Democrats are free to memorialize 9/11 as much as they wish. It’s not that republicans have taken the day, it is that democrats shun it.

Keef conveniently forgets that the Clintons ignored terrorism for 8 years.

They had good warning into the events that occurred on 9/11 if only they had delved deeper into the terrorist practice run in 1995 where they were developing plans and training for 9/11.

Of course, the press NEVER brings this up.

Libs hate it because it requires them to actually love their country for a change. Yes, we are questioning their patriotism, because time and time again they run this country down at the drop of a hat.

There are those who would have us surrender our ideals to a group of murderous, fundamentalist whackos half a world away, who would like for nothing more than to see the American eagle clip its own wings and put itself in a cage.

Fortunately, enough Americans love this country too much for that to happen.

Same happened to me. I didn’t linger on that channel very long though. It gives me some small satisfaction that Olbermann is constantly seething with anger. It must be a miserable existence to be perpetually enraged.

Usually, I would have some small amount of sympathy for such a person. In Olbermann’s case it just makes me smile.
