Obama's Plan to Desecrate 9/11
The American Spectator ^ | August 24,2009 | Matthew Vadum

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.

National Day of Service? Sounds like a holiday fit for the USSR or Nazi Germany.

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.

Of this National Day of Service, Jones says little except that it will be a great opportunity "for people to connect, to find other people in your peer group who are also passionate about repowering America but also greening up America and cleaning up America."

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".

It makes perfect sense:

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....

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.

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>

Normal people are busy enough and the democrat base is too lazy to get out of bed. I doubt anyone cares about Obomas "service."
I can understand the democrat base being asked to do something for their keep, but I think everyone else has already done more than their fair share.

Folks, I hate being in the position of even indirectly defending Obama, but let's not forget that he can't sign anything like this if it isn't first given to him by Congress. There is a lot this clymer is doing to destroy the country, but he isn't doing it by himself. We have to stop blaming him exclusively and widen the blame to Congress.

Here is the summary of who is responsible for sending this abomination to Obama. He bears the ultimate responsibility for signing it (and, of course, not discouraging it along the way), but we should all know who sent it.

The counts lead to the detailed voting information for each category.

March 18, 2009 Roll call number 140 in the House

Question On Passage: H R 1388 Generations Invigorating Volunteerism and Education (GIVE) Act
Ayes: 321 (Democrat: 251; Republican: 70)
Nays: 105 (Democrat: 1; Republican: 104)
Abstained: 6 (Democrat: 2; Republican: 4)

March 26, 2009 Roll call number 115 in the Senate

Question On Passage of the Bill (H.R. 1388 As Amended )
Ayes: 79 (Democrat: 56; Republican: 21; Other: 2)
Nays: 19 (Democrat: 0; Republican: 19)
Abstained: 1 (Democrat: 1; Republican: 0)

I go further.

Zero is an incompetent, whiny, race-baiting boob who hasn't had an original thought, maybe ever.

All of our problems - ALL OF THEM - are the fault of Congress, the universal franchise, and electoral corruption.

Reform proposals need to go well beyond term limits, IMO.

The only thing Zippy worships is himself but he is definitely a muzzie sympathizer. He picked that up during his formative years in Indonesia and can never get Islam completely out of his system.

It’s a bit like the old Catholic formula of “get them while they’re young” and they’ll always be Catholic at heart. What we learn in our early years becomes a part of our persona.

Too bad not enough of us realized before the election that Hussein would act this way once in office.

These bozo's ruining our country only do so because WE allow it.

If you want to make a change; and not the snake oil type change Obama sells, we have to be smarter compared to our enemy. We have the truth on our side!

This is war, our enemy is know, battles lines are drawn - the only remaining question, will you sit on the sidelines or get your hands dirty?

If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle. - Sun Tzu

Ok so I guess the supposed outrage at the Lockerbie Terrorist being released was a fake. IF we had any real reporters they would drill this question to the chief propogadist.

I have a question. IS there anyone in this Administration that Loves America? Why do they continue to go along with this nightmare. Either they are ignorant or they are malevolent.
Where are the resignations. Or are they collecting material for a giant book deal?

Putting on my tinfoil hat (birther, Manchurian candidate tinfoil hat), think about the following:

Green is the color of Islam. In that context, the 9/11 attacks were an attempt to "green up America".

This is asinine. If we want some action related to 9/11, then that action should be about vigilance and preparedness. If we want to honor a group of people, it should be a day to recognize first responders.

Seems NY's Mayor Bloomberg already has a head start on this insidious plan.

The New York City Council June 30 called on Mayor Bloomberg to add Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha to the New York Public School calendar. The non-binding council vote, Resolution 1281, passed with only councilmember G. Oliver Koppel opposing, urges the schools be closed to celebrate the two Islamic feast days. The vote comes as the culmination of a three-years lobbying effort by New York Islamist groups and what supporters such as the Council on American-Islamic Relations describe as “over 80 Labor and Community Organizations.”

What a disgusting human being, and President to boot!

Anybody else out there remember both him and McCain jointly visting Ground Zero in NYC about a year ago?

McCain (whom I do indeed dislike as many know) lays a wreath with gentle respect with a military demeanor; Obama just throws his down from a distance with an unceremonial toss, much with the same cavalier, piece of sh*t-look he had when they sung the national anthem and he was the only one on the dais not to show respect.

This guy is BAD NEWS. We know what's going on this this guy's brain. We know what he is made of. What he respects and what he disdains. And therein lies his BIG PROBLEM...he is woefully out of step with the United States of America.

How much longer can this go on before something gives.

Thank you. I will be making a trip to my local fire station (who puts up a memorial to the NY firemen, etc. every 9-11) with some token of my appreciation and a big 'thank you' to them all. We should all do the same ..... maybe the movement will grow and overshadow this other crap that just got signed into law by Obumble.
