Skip to comments.Obama's Plan to Desecrate 9/11
Posted on 08/24/2009 4:23:38 AM PDT by Scanian
The Obama White House is behind a cynical, coldly calculated political effort to erase the meaning of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks from the American psyche and convert Sept. 11 into a day of leftist celebration and statist idolatry.
This effort to reshape the American psyche has nothing to do with healing the nation and everything to do with easing the nation along in the ongoing radical transformation of America that President Obama promised during last year's election campaign. The president signed into law a measure in April that designated Sept. 11 as a National Day of Service, but it's not likely many lawmakers thought this meant that day was going to be turned into a celebration of ethanol, carbon emission controls, and radical community organizing.
The administration's plans were outlined in an Aug. 11 White House-sponsored teleconference call run by Obama ally Lennox Yearwood, president of the Hip Hop Caucus, and Liv Havstad, the group's senior vice president of strategic partnerships and programs.
Yearwood, who uses the honorific "Reverend" before his name, has been in the news in recent years, usually for getting arrested. After Democrats took back Congress, the rowdy activist was handcuffed outside a congressional hearing in September 2007 when Gen. David Petraeus was to testify. Yearwood told the "Democracy Now" radio program that he wanted to attend the hearing to hear Petraeus give his report. "I knew that when officers lie, soldiers die," he said.

Trying telling the families of both the victims and heros about it and see how far it goes.
You've got to be kidding. This man is insane.
We need a recall petition.
National Day of Service? Sounds like a holiday fit for the USSR or Nazi Germany.
National Day of Slavery
Martin Luther King Day in January has, in recent years, been designated as an unofficial “day of service.” Why not just stick with that?
This is just another classic miscalculation on O’s part, if this report is even half accurate.
It won’t play so well in the congressional districts, if this report is even half true.
Tin horn, tin ear.
To make 9/11 about "Repowering America" or "Greening Up America" implies that the 9/11 attacks were perpetrated by terrorists because we were insufficiently "Repowered" or "Greened Up".
if you are a muslim.
What better way to remove the tarnish on his religion and his brethren than to rewrite history and remove any references to the act perpetrated by islamofacism. We no longer are at war with the jihidies, they are not terrorists, and those in captivity in Gitmo just want to assimilate into the American way of life. This POS can not leave office soon enough....
I, personally, have not seen a lot of “service” getting done on MLK Day.
It’s a 3 day weekend.
Everybody who knows how should upload to YouTube et.al. every scrap of available 9/11 footage — shove it right back into the Liberals’ faces...
Never forget - never forgive!
This is incredible!!! What are the American people going to do?
Only for government employees.
I've usually been working and "doing my national service" by paying taxes.
With this crap act, those days are all in the past.
Sadly, it’s accurate. I read that he’s going to give a big speech on Sept. 11 about things like Americorps and new “youth volunteer” programs.
Unfortunate, though, I think people are just going to shrug and there won’t really be any negative reaction at all, except here, of course.
Yeah, give it a few more years. Sept 11th will turn into a National day of apology and groveling to the Muslim wornd. No doubt there will be ritual conversions at the Pentagon and WTC sites.
I’m beginning to think maybe obammy is trying to gt America furious at him and his minions the unAmerican socialist democrats.
Like a previous poster stated.
“F you B.O.” you socialist pos punk
How do we move to impeach this fraud asap?
He signed this in April, yet this is the first I've heard of it. I suppose others who usually don't pay attention to politics haven't heard it at all.
This does need to get out loud and clear. If it does, that -14 poll number is going to go even lower.
And all along, while most people with years of knowledge in the counterterrorism field thought 9/11 was a response to our foreign policy, it was because we weren’t green enough. Whodathunkit, if only Bush signed the Kyoto Treaty the towers would still be standing. </s>
