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.

What makes it reverential is what you carry in your heart. No expression in marble or any other material can convey it.

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

Posted By: earlybird- 11/21/2017 12:14:11     Post Reply
In the Alabama Senate special election next month, the national political parties are either a punching bag or an anvil. Republican Roy Moore is increasingly running against the GOP establishment in Washington after top elected officials called for him to exit the race amid allegations of sexual assault and improper relationships with teenagers decades ago. Moore’s struggles and the shock of the allegations against him have tilted the race significantly, providing an opening for Democrat Doug Jones to compete in ruby red Alabama, which supported President Trump by nearly 30 points over Hillary Clinton last November.

On Monday, Charlie Rose of PBS and CBS, and Glenn Thrush of the New York Times fell. The latter got drunk and made a pass at a woman half his age who was equally drunk. Apparently, he did something and left her in tears. Rose gets the prize for the most sanctimonious apology so far.(Snip)But this is uncommon manure from an angus retentive bull who sees himself as the great white father bestowing kindnesses upon his lessers -- "I have prided myself on being an advocate for the careers of the women with whom I have worked."

Scott Adams of Dilbert fame thinks Roy Moore is toast, I don´t. The allegations of sexual impropriety are specious at best, and overwhelmed by the shoes elsewhere dropping like a shoe store in an earthquake. The election comes down to whether Republicans want to limit government, cut taxes, and Make America Great Again -- or whether they would like to please the news media. We cannot risk the disapproval of Charlie Rose, can we? Glenn Thrush may skewer us in the New York Times. Democrats have no such problem. They would vote for a yellow dog if he were a Democrat, and

WASHINGTON — After making the transition from comedy to politics, Senator Al Franken, Democrat of Minnesota, positioned himself as a staunch defender of women’s rights. “Sexual harassment and violence are unacceptable,’’ he wrote on Twitter last month. “We must all do our part to listen, stand with and support survivors.’’ Now it is Mr. Franken who stands accused, and his uncompromising stance in support of “survivors” of harassment has left him few options but to apologize and try to weather the storm.

The former boyfriend, Jeff DeVine, attended high school with Young and is currently in Thailand, where he runs DeVine Ministries with his wife and twin daughters.

GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore is attempting to discredit the story of one of his accusers, who alleges he sexually assaulted her outside of an Alabama diner when she was 16 years old. The Moore campaign released a series of bullet points on Monday that contest the account Beverly Young Nelson gave during a press conference with attorney Gloria Allred last week, comparing statements provided by former employees and patrons of Olde Hickory House with her remarks. The campaign points to the accounts of four unidentified witnesses including "two former waitresses and two former patrons" who say they never saw Moore at

American jurisprudence is well-known for its basic premise of “innocent until proven guilty.” In a court of law, a criminal defendant must be found guilty beyond a reasonable doubt to be convicted of a crime. That defendant walks into the court presumed innocent until that presumption is rebutted by evidence that a judge or jury finds convincing beyond a reasonable doubt. A political campaign may not be a courtroom, but nonetheless Americans have an innate sense of fairness and due process. Americans believe that due process is a precept applicable in many walks of life, including the workplace, which is why

Bocanegra (D-Pacoima) announced Monday that he would resign effective Sept. 1, 2018, citing “persistent rumors and speculation” regarding sexual harassment claims.

Eight women have told The Washington Post that longtime television host Charlie Rose made unwanted sexual advances toward them, including lewd phone calls, walking around naked in their presence, or groping their breasts, buttocks or genital areas. The women were employees or aspired to work for Rose at the “Charlie Rose” show from the late 1990s to as recently as 2011. They ranged in age from 21 to 37 at the time of the alleged encounters.

A federal judge on Monday permanently blocked President Trump’s executive order to cut funding from so called “sanctuary cities.” Trump’s order would have removed some federal funds from cities that limit their cooperation with U.S. immigration authorities. U.S. District Court Judge William Orrick rejected the Trump administration’s argument that the measure only applies to a relatively small pool of money. Orrick also said that Trump cannot set fresh conditions on spending that Congress has previously approved. Monday’s ruling came in lawsuits brought by two California counties, Santa Clara and San Francisco.

Over the last few days, I’ve had a number of conversations with both right- and left-leaning friends about the political futures of Al Franken and Roy Moore. Without equating the severity of the alleged offenses (Moore’s are obviously worse), I’ve been struck by the extent to which people across the political spectrum will tolerate misconduct in politicians that they’d never, ever tolerate in their own workplaces. In most functioning corporations, if there’s pictorial evidence that a senior executive groped a woman, then that executive is forced to resign. If there are known, credible allegations that an applicant for a senior
