Debasing the Memory of 9/11
American Greatness, by Titus Techera

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 9/12/2017 1:44:43 PM

This time one year ago, I was touring America to see the country in the grip of the agonistic election campaign and to prepare, like other foreigners before me, to write a book. I had only one afternoon in New York.(Snip)I felt confusion and anger well up in me, all the more as I realized I was all alone in these emotions at this place. The Americans I saw at Ground Zero did not seem exactly to be tourists, but neither were they pilgrims. I thought I saw the heart of easygoing American law-abidingness there, and I did not like

Comments:
I had to chop out a lot of exposition about his going with his guide to the Empire State Building and then to the World Trade Center and the 9/11 Memorial.

This is a fine article, in my estimation, that well expresses the outrage many of us feel about what happened on 9/11 (usually ill-described as a “sad tragedy” rather than an atrocity) and what is being done to debase the memories of our heroes. The MLK memorial, the Eisenhower memorial (mercifully cancelled?) and others.

I found many points of agreement with this.

For example, FTA:

Unless we count the Transportation Security Administration and Department of Homeland Security, which have managed mainly to treat every citizen as a potential terrorist, where have we mobilized the country? How is it that a country once too proud to treat an act of war as a bureaucratic matter, now puts citizens through a humiliating, mindless bit of security theater, and abandons to insensate commissions the responsibility we all share to defend our country? How did we turn the suffering of 9/11 into an ongoing war of partisan hysteria.

Do recommend this article.

This is exactly how I felt the last time I was there - and I nearly vomited when I went int St. Pauls. It was transformed into a grief porn center featuring a photo of one of my dead friends smiling as part of their exhibit put on to entertain and divert people before the go to eat artisanal kale in Tribeca somewhere.

I have never been back.

I would probably react like #2.

I had been to the WTC just a few years before, parking way underground, visiting an office in Tower 1.

I liked the twin lights far better than any of the manmade contrivances that are there now. It is a place to pray and remember and vow “never again", not just another tourist attraction.

Here, we have an excellent summation of everything emotion-wise that we, as a nation- have experienced over the 9/11 atrocity. And it was an atrocity of almost unimaginable proportions.

but, I can tell you exactly why we have more or less, shunned the appropriate human emotions over it.

George Bush was the first President in our history to recognize the astounding implications of that act. 300 million Americans, owners of the wealthiest and most heavily armed nation on this planet were struck down while basically minding their own business. Attacked by simplistic representatives of what is likely the most blood thirsty human gang since Genghis Khan and the Golden Horde: Islam!

To think of what response to such an evil, heinous act would be appropriate, only Armageddon would conjure a more dreadful concept. So, fearing his anger (if he ever had any) and the anger of the American people, Bush sought to walk up the steps to a mosque and meekly surrender our collective rage and pronounce the great lie; "Islam is a religion of peace!" It is neither a religion nor does it offer peace. When I saw him do that, I had to force myself not to vomit!

That day, I knew what we should do. And that was smite those heathens so mightily, they would never again dare to raise a finger against us! Expel every Muslims from our country never to let one in again! And then would come the “Smiting”.

We did none of that. We attacked convenient surrogates, enemies of the Muslims who actually orchestrated the attack, the Saudis, and tried to then rebuild their nations for them. The message was quite clear. We lost that war and have been losing it ever since.

9/11 was the attack that defeated America at long last!

What debases the memory of 911 is our obsession with all things Muslim. After Pearl Harbor we didn´t celebrate Japanese or German culture, place Japanese and German immigrants or their second and third generation offspring at the right hand of the seat of power.

How many Muslims were in key federal roles on 911 and how many were there in 2016? Does that make any sense?

While I can´t disagree that all these years laterAmerica´s response has been most disappointing.

However, contrary to the author and others on this site, I found the Memorial and Museum moving and reverential. It is reminder of all that was lost that day and it moved me to tears.

I hope the author returns someday to see the museum. It might change his mind.For those who have not been there, I advise you visit and judge for yourselves.

I am glad somebody said it - about the 9/11 Memorial. I know a lot of people who did not find it reverent, beautiful at all. It felt like something they came up with
that nobody could disagree with or be offended by. I think that says it all.

Found it sterile and a tribute to a mass loss of first responders rather than a testament to the capacity of Muslims to do evil in the name of their religion. Compare and contrast with the Holocaust Museum. Imagine if the Holocaust Museum had no mention of Nazis and only discussed the American soldiers who died in WWII, without discussing the ghastly demonstration of the power of evil.

The whole place puts too much emphasis on memorializing those who died trying to help and not marking, for all time, the evil done by those trying to hurt.

Doesn´t matter to me what is there now. I remember what used to be there. I can´t look at the Freedom Tower today without my memory flashing back to what used to be in its place. And although I was in Memphis on 9/11, three months later I walked down Broadway and saw the pile of still smoldering rubble with my own eyes. Somewhere in my closet are pictures I took that day. Do I need some artsy-fartsy memorial to remind me of that day? No, I have my memories, and that is all I will ever need.

I have no desire to see this place in person.

I know people who died there, and I know what their loss means to their families. I also know someone who miraculously survived.

The only thing I can think of about those reflecting loss pools/waterfalls is to think of all that water as tears, the tears of the families, the tears of all of us for what has been lost

Exactly what millionaire athletes are protesting these days isn’t exactly clear to them or anyone else. The common thread appears to be some anti-American/police sentiment. America is racist?

The nine justices at the Supreme Court escaped having to decide the travel ban case, as time expired on President Trump´s executive orders calling for 90-day and 120-day moratoriums on travel with six countries. Justices can read calendars. In June, justices lifted injunctions on his orders, and scheduled hearings for October -- which was after the expiration date of his orders. Basically, they struck down the lower court orders without having to explain why. They don´t have to. From NPR: Over the weekend, the Trump administration issued a new update to its travel ban, which had been poised to expire.

A fast-moving column of Union troops marched along a narrow stretch of beach in coastal South Carolina in the twilight of July 18, 1863. In the vanguard of the federal force was the 600-strong 54th Massachusetts Infantry, the first black regiment raised in the North. (Snip)At some point during the advance, the sergeant who carried the national colors, John W. Wall, became separated from his charge. According to a report published soon after the assault in The New York Herald: “He fell into a deep ditch, and called upon his guard to help him out. They could not stop for

Mass fan walkouts at stadiums will prove more effective than boycotting NFL advertisers. Organize mass exits and I guarantee you’ll beat the flag flouters at their own mass-media game. This is not to say you shouldn’t continue to throw your slippers at the TV set and curse a blue streak when major league players thumb their noses at Old Glory. I do. I’m just saying we can also do something really useful. When you walk out after standing for “Oh say can you see … ,” the TV cameras will show you saying, louder and better, the opposite of what the flag back-handers are

Trump will fire Robert Mueller eventually.

A strange quiet has settled in at the White House. President Trump greeted Robert Mueller’s appointment as special counsel in charge of the Russia investigation with a steady stream of diatribes, including some 40 bilious tweets. He challenged Mueller’s impartiality and called the investigation a “witch hunt.” But for nearly two months, Trump has restrained himself on the subject. His lawyers, meanwhile, have treated Mueller with customary deference.* (Snip) Which spurs three questions: 1) Will Trump one day try to oust Mueller? 2) If he does, will he get away with it? and 3) What consequences would that have for our political

AUSTIN, Texas — Sen. Ted Cruz on Sunday said he doesn’t support the latest Obamacare repeal plan, dealing a fresh blow to Republicans’ last-ditch effort to kill Barack Obama’s signature health care law. After seven years of promises to repeal Obamacare, Republicans have six days to pass legislation with a party-line vote. But with Cruz’s opposition, at least five Republicans in the 52-member caucus have signaled that they either won’t vote for or are leaning against supporting the Graham-Cassidy bill. The legislation, authored by Republican Sens. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, would block-grant federal health

With the announcement that John McCain will not be voting in favor of the Graham-Cassidy bill that would repeal major portions of the Affordable Care Act, conservatives raced to Twitter and talk radio phone lines to express their outrage. “Woe is us! John McCain has ‘betrayed’ us again!” Conservatives shout these words into the ether and to those who are paid to listen to (and stir up) their rage. Sadly, conservatives did not take to Twitter or flood the congressional phone lines in support of Graham-Cassidy in the days leading up to McCain’s “betrayal.” It seems that in the policy

Who would have thought that Colin Kaepernick would actually do the nation a great service? He’s been a change agent alright, but not in the way he hoped. His well-documented inadequacies on the field got him benched by the San Francisco 49ers, which led him to pursue a career as a free agent. But it was Kaepernick’s political theatrics that made him toxic to many fans and thus to potential employers. Still, those of us who love America owe him a debt of gratitude. It took Colin Kaepernick to pop the sports bubble. We’ve all watched the bubble inflate for years. Palatial new

CARSON, Calif. — It’s time for NFL owners to go beyond issuing statements and to make a statement: bring back quarterback Colin Kaepernick. On Sunday, from an undisclosed location, Kaepernick retweeted on his Twitter account several images of NFL players wearing T-shirts that read #IMWITHKAP. NFL owners need to show they are as well. They finally can dispel theories that Kaepernick has been blackballed for refusing to stand for the national anthem last season, or, fearing a blacklash from fans, that they simply lack the courage to give him another chance.
