9/11 Museum Director Tried to Cut Firefighter Photo: Too 'Rah-Rah American'
Breitbart ^

Posted on 07/29/2013 10:24:38 AM PDT by chessplayer

According to Elizabeth Greenspan, author of the up coming book Battle for Ground Zero (St. Martin’s Press), Michael Shulan, creative director of the 9/11 Memorial Museum, thought about cutting the famed photo from Ground Zero of three firefighters raising the American flag amidst the rubble of the World Trade Center…because he thought it was too “rah-rah America.” Shulan said, “I really believe that the way America will look best, the way we can really do best, is to not be Americans so vigilantly and so vehemently.”

The chief curator of the museum, Jan Ramirez, eventually minimized the photograph in favor of three other camera angles of the scene. “Several images undercut the myth of ‘one iconic moment,’ Ramirez said,

They attacked America on 9.11. they attacked symbols of America because we are America. They hate us because we are America. What exactly is wrong with this expression of our being American on that horrific day?

The 911 monument must praise al Qaeda (now supported by
the US gov’t against the functionally ‘naked’ American
people whom the gov’t has betrayed with treason).

What is it with these people?  It's as if they're embarrassed about our nation.  Man, if they're that upset, just move away.  Leave the rest of us in peace.

“My concern, as it always was, is that we not reduce [9/11] down to something that was too simple, and in its simplicity would actually distort the complexity of the event, the meaning of the event,”

A bloody OUTRAGE!! There was nothing complex about 9-11. It was very simple.

Muslim terrorists attacked America, and killed 3,000 civilians without provocation. End of story. It was only a complex event in the delusional mind of progressive leftists, who have to jump through all kinds of Orwellian mental hoops in a disgusting attempt to mold reality to their totalitarian worldview.

I’m waiting to tour the 9/11 Museum, to discover the following sections:

1) Why America is Hated So
2) Provocational Acts of America Against Islam
3) Allah Is The Only True God
4) We Deserved It
5) How Bad We Got Creamed, Look At The Bodies Of The Infidels
6) How To Convert To Islam

Now that One World Trade Center is done, perhaps Michael Shulan should get a taste of what it’s like to jump from it. You know, to instill a sense of perspective from all those ‘rah-rah’ Americans.

Remember when someone there wanted to make a “racially inclusive” statue of the flag raising? It was ridiculous!

It was well panned on FR at that time.

Imaginary History: “Picture three white fire fighters raising the American flag at Ground Zero. Then picture a magical transformation: a statue of one white, one black and one Hispanic. The rulers of political correctness didn’t like what really happened, so they plan to portray it the way they think it should have been.”

Shulan said, “I really believe that the way America will look best, the way we can really do best, is to not be Americans so vigilantly and so vehemently.”
___________________________________________________

and I think that the way Islam will look best, is to not have Islam at all...

Just do away with Islam...

that way we Americans can really do best, we can do what we are Constitutionally suppose to do, be Americans vigilantly and vehemently without the fear of death for just being Americans...

0bama agrees. He has canceled just about every event or program that generates patriotic nationalism for America, including manned space programs by NASA, fleet week and other military celebrations, White House tours for the public, etc.. He himself does his best to downplay America’s greatness, but when he does mention America he talks about “income inequality” or how Ho Chi Minh was inspired by our Forefathers.. WHAT AN A-HOLE!!!!

It is widely accepted that many of the trustees of the 9/11 Memorial Museum are liberals.
Go no further for the answer as to why certain Americans would be "uncomfortable" with the idea of loving America unconditionally.

Liberals believe they are citizens of the world and America deserves most of the bad things that happen to her.

Just reason number 12 to truly, despise them!

the left equates American pride with “nationalism,” in the most fascist way possible lol The first time I came across this, was while volunteering and putting together a mailer... I inadvertently came back with the Flag forever stamps and was told they couldn’t use them because “some” people found the flag to be offensive. Huh? then she explained, it represents national fervor lol
