Amherst Town Meeting, Sep 10, 2001, 12 hours before the first plane struck the WTC
self YouTube ^ | 09/09/2012 | RaceBannon

Posted on 09/09/2012 4:51:28 PM PDT by RaceBannon

This town hall meeting took place Sep 10, 2001 in Amherst Mass 12 hours before the first plane struck the towers in New York City, before the Pentagon was hit, and before Flight 93 was taken down in a suicide dive by the terrorists who were beign overrun by brave Americans.

This video is significant because of the statements made at the 40 minute to 50 minute mark and again at the 1 hour 10 minute mark which were in response to comments made at the 45 minute mark.

Keep in mind this was made 12 hours before the World Trade Center was attacked on 9/11.

We seldom juxtapose tar and feathers the way we used to. More’s the pity!

For those who don’t want to click on youtoob, the name of the individual, and maybe a transcript of the relevant statements might be helpful.

Could he be talking about the flag with Obama in the star field? Now that’s terrorism.

For those here unfamiliar with Massachusetts if you go to the youtube clip linked at the top and fast forward to the 1:10:00 mark you'll see what Massachusetts has become.Clowns like that b**** are a dime a dozen here...they make up an enormous portion of the population.Add the welfare parasites to those clowns and you understand where Barney Frank,Kerry,Dukakis and others come from.We have,basically,become a state of welfare parasites and Dennis Kuscinitches.

Jenny Traschen UMass prof

http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0110/14/sm.09.html

>>PROF. JENNY TRASCHEN, UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS: Actually, what the flag stands for is a symbol of terrorism and death and fear and destruction and repression.

DELANEY: The next day, in the wake of the hijackings, Web sites began to fill with anger toward Professor Traschen, and she received a deluge of what she describes as hateful and vile, even frightening phone and e-mail threats. Declining to comment on camera, she now says her beliefs haven’t changed, but her words were taken out of context. The hijacking, she said, horrified her.

Isabel Lyman writes:
>> “The flag,” she told the Select Board in a statement that was reported in this newspaper, “is a symbol of tyranny and fear and destruction and terrorism.” I gasped. In a room filled with veterans and patriots, that sentence had as much impact as if she had burned Old Glory on the Town Common. Amherst resident Phyllis Daley had three words for Traschen as the latter walked past her seat: “Shame on you!”

Since that meeting, and since the events of Sept. 11, 2001, other outraged citizens have repeated Traschen’s words - almost verbatim - to me.

I share their outrage. Such “I hate America” sentiments reflect a lack of gratitude for all the good the United States has done, all the blood we’ve shed on foreign soil, all the money we’ve given to poorer nations, all the immigrants’ dreams that have come true.

But it is easy for me to dismiss her remarks as a childish rant. See, that isn’t my American flag she’s talking about. Not even close. Let me tell you about my flag.

My flag is the one carefully draped over the casket of New York Fire Department Chief Peter Ganci.

My flag is the one that mourners at commentator Barbara Olson’s memorial service in Arlington, Va., placed on their suit lapels and somber dresses.

My flag is the one in downtown Northampton that a crowd outside Spoleto restaurant faced as they sang the national anthem during a candlelight vigil.

My flag is the one that our president, George W. Bush, raised when he visited Ground Zero.

—Then a rebutal by Traschen:

>>As a result, I have received a large quantity of hateful e-mail and phone calls. Most of these have been ugly and violent in tone. Many recent ones, from readers of the WSJ site, have also been obscene. Almost all have been anonymous. These anonymous, hostile, obscene messages accuse me of undermining American freedoms. They accuse me of supporting violence and terrorism.
This could not be further from the truth. Since I was a child, I have been involved in working for peace. I abhor violence, torture, and murder

Sorry Skippy.Some people must have lots of time on their hands to waste. I'm not one of them.

People, please try to avoid posting links to videos unless the information can't be presented any other way.

Apparently, you didn’t read anything else

there were plenty of links to actual Freeper pages covering this event

And actual definitive information where you can skip most of the video and go right to the juicy parts and save your precious time, of which you must have lots or else you wouldn’t have wasted it on this thread, eh?

also, the video is the actual event, of the actual event, of which I was a personal witness to the actual event, of which the Freeper pages directly refer to

you cant cover the event without actually SHOWING it, can you?

So, SKIPPY, I think you can recant now...

So, if you are offended that I posted the most direct evidence that an event actually took place, then maybe you need to go complain somewhere else, Okay SKIPPY?

I wonder how this Marine from the second Fallujah action would feel about some of the goons shown in your videos.

This is almost prophetic ! I remember the last time I flew before Sept 11th. I went to Indiana on Labor Day 2001 - flew from Colorado Springs to Cincinnati and back home. The next time I flew was in December and things were so different.

That’s sad to learn about Mr. Miller. A lot of liberals despise our country and our soldiers. Mr. Miller probably was confronted by it all because he had his picture taken and became a target of the enemy from within.

Liberals are terribly demoralizing people. They hurt Americans all the time with their festering hatred, unthoughtfulness and intolerance, but to come under their attack in war as they idolize the enemy and hate you as an American soldier and the country and constitution you are fighting for, must be really devastating.

Then, to make things worse, to find the elite and both parties have decided to declare war on terror against normal Americans, and specifically against veterns and suspend much of the constitution you fought to protect...

This is a hellish time for America. God bless and protect and heal our soldiers and their families. Deliver us from evil.

Jennie Traschen

Professor of physics at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.

Our flag represents death and destruction.

“What the [American] flag is, is a symbol of terrorism and death and fear and destruction and oppression.”

It's always been my experience that garbage like Prof. Traschen, for all their talk about ‘’working for peace’’ and denouncing violence think and sometimes act in complete opposite of the ''peace'' they claim to work for.

Thanks. I can really feel bad for him as well as quite a few other's in our Army, Marines, Navy, Airforce, to a degree our Coast Guard who participated in the Iraqi Stabilization and Security Operations over a long time frame.
My nephew, a two tour Marine was involved in the first Fallujah action. He was also involved in quite a few very bad, how should I say situations that developed through the whole near western, southern, and eastern areas of Baghdad between 2003 through the end of 2004.
I used to have very bad dreams and waking up in a cold sweat as I tried to kill of a few Islamist in say a dirty filthy canal where they where trying to attack say a Shiite Arab father and his little daughter.
I practically lived much of what went on in those first few years in Iraq via. this site and many other sources.
So the Marine depicted in that photo and what he and so many duty bound, with honor had to do.
Well. My heart is with so many of them.
My nephew went through some trying times. I guess I would also, if was almost blown into pieces more then once in towns like al Mamudyia, al Latifia, al Kurma, Fallujah, then switch to missions he had to go through in a humvee as a S4, Intelligence, on the more eastern shit holes south of Baghdad, for some twenty clicks or so radias, equally hostile to all American forces. Deep in the heart of the Sunni Islamic Insurgency as it formed.
So you can bet I also have a deep respect for them all.
Not being a money bag. I can at least continue to hold them all up for HIM to provide in the end game and perhaps before, HIS very best for each of them. They served with honor.
Do have a great upcoming day. The season of fall is upon us.

There are quite a few FReepers who don't believe PTSD exists.

I'd spit in reference to them, but I hold back because I understand that their own PTSD could be the reason they reject the concept, out of fear. Instead, if any of them read this, I recommend you seek help - it can be helped.

Wrong. But unlike Satanists, you secular progressives don't know who you are working for.
