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>
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.
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
March 26, 2009 Roll call number 115 in the Senate
Work our tails off to put conservatives in charge of both houses of Congress.
They’ll flip out over this the same as they did over Obamacare. But first they need to be told about it.
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 American media are too busy fellating Zerobama to bother reporting any news.
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.
“This POS can not leave office soon enough.... “
He needs to shown the door....
Not sure how but we can’t stand 4 years of this crap.....
The sooner the better.
Let’s see how many acts of service Hussein and Michelle do on Martha’s Vineyard.
I think we all need to start calling our Congressional reps and demanding impeachment proceedings.
I see KBH voted yes. I want to know why Louie Gohmert abstained!
I sent this story to Glenn Beck.
Never underestimate Obama.He just ALLOWED the murderer of the flight 103 passengers to go free.Think what this did to the victims’ families and friends.
Every day, his true self emerges.
He is a muzzy mole and is trying to destroy this country.
There are already protests scheduled for 9/12. Ozero is really trying to start riots.
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?

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 ... greening up America ... "
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.
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.
Eventually something like “Islamic Memorial Day.” Celebrating Allah’s departed heroes.
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.
Then Republicans will need to hold their own event on or near Ground Zero soil on Sept. 11th, make it solemn and in complete remembrance of what happened 8 years ago, and DO NOT INVITE SENATOR OBAMA.
Like the zero gives a tinker’s damn about them.
How did President Obama...”allow” that?
What a fool. What is it about liberals needing to remake and redefine? 9/11 has a meaning that is deeply significant for a majority of Americans. Why isn’t that enough? Why try to make it something else?
