Why liberals are wrong about politicizing the memory of 9/11
Communities Digital News ^ | 15 May 2014 | By Eric Golub,

ATLANTIC CITY, May 15, 2014 — The opening of the 9/11 museum in New York City has created an everlasting memorial for all of the victims. The story of every one of the nearly 3,000 lives lost on September 11th, 2001, is being told.

Children and grandchildren of the fallen will get to know about the final hours of the people they spent far too little time with on this earth.

Unfortunately, as more time goes by, it becomes clear that many of the 9/11 victims died in vain.

At the risk of offending the half of the country that needs and deserves to be offended, Democrats’ liberal policy and tip-toeing around the issue of whether 9/11 was the result of radical jihadsts are the reason why there will be more terror victims in the years to come.

This is a political issue.

Let liberal heads explode. Let them scream about how 9/11 must not ever be politicized. 9/11 must stay non-partisan.

Wrong. Totally, completely, unequivocally wrong. 9/11 and this museum must be politicized.

How about trying to just do things right without regard for politics?

Allowing them to call themselves, “liberals.” is part of the problem. There is nothing liberal about them.

Given free choice, the political left always seems to choose evil.

The problem is not liberals.

The problem is government and their corporate cronies.

How convenient that the “liberal vs conservative” theatrics takes the heat off the ringleaders of crony capitalism, and pits the people against themselves.

I stopped playing that game.

I am guessing by “right” you mean “true”. For fellow travellers, bolsheviks and sundry progressives there is no truth, only politics.

Good distinction, but I was speaking on a common sense level.

It would be a grave mistake to forget that the statist ideologues, Bolsheviks, are setting the tune all others, including the crony capitalists, are dancing to.

So very true. From Travis McGee, ‘The Lonely Silver Rain: “No matter how many dead ones see, indifference is never achieved except by butchers.”

I watched some of the ceremony... it felt like a funeral. Which was appropriate over a decade ago - NOT appropriate today. The dedication was liberal in the sense of strong overtones of defeat - of victims and pity parties. It was political... liberal to the bone. Verging on offensive.

I missed Obamas speech at the opening of the 911 museum. Did it go something like this?

What a great article. I always said they should have a section in this museum titled “Causes of 911” and have Bubbas face right next to the radical Muzzies. That freakin d-bag sat around on his ass getting BJ’s while Mohammed was blowing stuff up one after another like popcorn on a hot plate and all that turd cared about was getting laid and having his butt kissed by celebrities.

While truth is a relative term, why not just present the FACTS and let the truth be self evident. The facts are often stubborn things and without editing the facts to drive an agenda, the truth becomes evident.

The facts state that muslims hate the west, and want to destroy the west. The facts are that all of the perpetrators of 9/11 were muslims, fervent ones, originalist muslims who want to live by 7th century rules. Want to enlist, enslave, or kill all infidels.... Those are the facts, the truth of what those facts are saying doen’t need to be stated, it is obvious.

They are not only wrong but they are wrong at the top of their lungs.

Right.

And there is no significant political divide over whether or not innocent people should be killed.

But we’re encouraged to emphasize the politics of this, which distracts from simply doing what’s right.

Politics are divisive. The facts of moral righteousness (sans politics) are never divisive.

No, he said if he had a son he would have died in the Twin Towers.

“career politicians and their special interest funders”. There’s only one party in DC: The Re-Election Party, dedicated to the personal wealth accumulation of its members at tax payer expense.
