Skip to comments.Mayor Bloomberg: 9/11 site shouldn't be called "Ground Zero"
Posted on 09/06/2011 1:10:05 PM PDT by La Enchiladita
People should stop calling the site of the September 11 attacks "Ground Zero," New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg said on Tuesday, urging Americans to move past a term long linked with the World Trade Center's twin towers destruction.
"We will never forget the devastation of the area that came to be known as ground zero. Never. But the time has come to call those 16 acres what they are: The World Trade Center and the National September 11 Memorial and Museum," Bloomberg said in a speech on the rebuilding of lower Manhattan.
Ground Zero originated as a term to describe the site of a nuclear explosion and later was used to refer to the point of any dramatic or violent event.

Puleeeeeeeez stop telling us what to do. It’s not your job!!!
How would we ever get by without Big Brother Bloomberg to tell us what to say and what to think, and when to invite the preachers and when not to invite them.
Bloomberg is a sick bstrd — he really must think it is his lot in life to correct what we say, what we eat, what we smoke, how much salt we use - everything. He is really mentally deranged.
Shame on New York for electing this nanny state clown.
Where ever 0bama is now, is now Ground Zer0.
Looking for synonyms, “Bloomberg” comes to mind.
Besides which, “ground zero” has become part of our language in the general anyway - denoting the center of any particular activity. IE...Morehead City NC was “ground zero” for Hurricane Irene — etc.
Dear Dumbkof Mayor of New York City: STFU and then drop dead.
Mayor Bloomberg shouldn’t be called “Mayor” Bloomberg.
“The World Trade Center and the National September 11 Memorial and Museum”
I sometimes refer to it as the the Muslim Killing Field.
Ground Zero does not adequately describe my outrage and has always sounded too tame.
Assbreath wants us to sanitize it further? Not likely.
This f***ing LOON has to GO. Bloomberg is getting crazier with each day.
When ever a politician tries to get into your head to tell you how to think, that’s the time to dig in and hold firm — no matter how trivial or how important the topic is.
Every syllable I read about this revolting runt makes me find new ways to hate him more. Can’t he just go away?
And his plane is Air Force Zero.
Bloomberg is useless.
Bloomberg is expanding his office in Dubai — it’s becoming his “MidEast Hub” office.
This is why he’s so erratic. Because every morning, he gets another call from his moslem backers telling him “If you still want to do business in the Mideast, today you’ll announce ________.”
Would someone please plug this jackass’s pie hole?
Good God, what is wrong with New York?
Okey dokey-—GROUND ZERO it is.
Ground zero would be Obama in a giant mortar and pestle set
That pharse, just trips off the tongue, doesn't it?
Well, maybe not quite, we’ve already used up “Commandante Zero”, and just “Zero” ~ need something new for Bloomberg ~ how about Bloomquisling, or Bloompetan, or maybe Bloomhitler ~ yeah, Bloomhitler.
EXCELLENT post about them telling you what to say or think!!
However, “The World Trade Center and the National September 11 Memorial and Museum” does sorta just roll off the tongue.
another jew hating jew.
I like that. Revolting runt. My father would have called him a sawed-off stinker. I just call him Kapo B-Berg.
What does this commiecrat want us to call it? Future al quada celebration mosque site and headquarters?
I have named my toilet “Bloomberg” in honor of the mayor.
Is he mayor for life?? Good grief! When will he ever just go away?
OK Bloomy. Let’s call it what THEY would call it.
There really is no other way to say this:
“Ground Zero” is an entirely appropriate name for the site of an evil attack of that magnitude. “Spineless Wimp” is an entirely appropriate name for the elitist snob who thinks it’s divisive to use an essentially neutral term for the site of a massively evil attack. I will continue to use both names.
It would seem Mr. Mayor missed yet another opportunity to keep his mouth closed.
How about a Muslin Free Zone. Eh Bloomy?
. . . and people should stop calling those of radical Islam, “terrorists”!!!!
Right, we will get on that ASAP.
Or Dar al-Hudna.
Yes, that’s what Bloomy wants.
You Dhimmis pony up and we’ll buy a little respite.
Eventually he will order everyone to call it “Cordoba House Plaza” but he won’t announce that demand until after the 10th year 9/11 ceremony.
Mayor Bloomberg can go pound sand. End of message.
Okay, I can understand wanting to call the site the 9/11 Memorial instead of “Ground Zero”. But did the mayor have to speechify about it? I don’t think so.
46 murders over the holiday weekend, and this is on his agenda this morning? They should call the whole town ground zero at this rate!
Hopefully they will call it Bloomberg’s political graveyard. What a nincompoop this guy is.
Bloomberg, like all secular relativists, is horrified at the thought that good and evil exist. Ground Zero is the ultimate confirmation of evil. So, he can’t deal with it.
In fact, to borrow a line from Colonel Jessup in A Few Good Men — Mr. I’ve-got-my-bloomers-in-a-twist, “You can’t handle the truth!”
Why? Let’s be factual. Isn’t that what Al-Qaeda called it?
He doesn’t want much, does he?
How about calling it the Islamic Killing Field?
