I heard about this this week and just about drove off the road! Apparently, The liberal thought police in Manhattan have gotten control of the publicly funded memorial to the victims and horror of 9-11. Debra Burlingame wrote a piece in the WSJ on Tuesday that should be manditory reading for every American. She is the sister of one of the American Airlines pilots of flight 77 that hit the Pentagon. She has been a tireless crusader on behalf of the victims to ensure that a fitting tribute be constructed to memorialize those murdered by the scum in dirty night shirts. In her article The Great Ground Zero Heist, she documents the travesty of how the memorial project has been handed over to a committed leftist named Tom Bernstein. Bernstein has been involved with far left, anti-American activist groups such as the ACLU, and Human Rights First and has been involved with lawsuites against Donald Rumsfeld on behalf of detainees in Iraq and Afghanistan. This is the guy that has been handed the reigns of millions of federal dollars to construct a memorial to something he probably thinks we are responsible for! Under his direction, the memorial will not be a tribute to the cowerdice and brutality of September 11th and the resulting bravery and heroism in it's aftermath, but rather a global retrospective of political incorrectness over the centuries.
In her expose' of this scandal, Burlingame writes, "The public will have come to see 9/11 but will be given a high-tech, multimedia tutorial about man's inhumanity to man, from Native American genocide to the lynchings and cross-burnings of the Jim Crow South, from the Third Reich's Final Solution to the Soviet gulags and beyond. This is a history all should know and learn, but dispensing it over the ashes of Ground Zero is like creating a Museum of Tolerance over the sunken graves of the USS Arizona."
This is one issue that I hope will catch public attention and grow to the point where congress and the President get involved and pull the plug before it's too late. It has been the "turn the other cheek", "blame America first", liberals that have caused much of the atmosphere that made possible an event like 9-11. We don't need a Tax payer funded anti-american lecture by a committed lefty on the site of the worst single act of terrorism on our own soil.
Call your congressman and demand that something be done.
