First the “War on Christmas,” now the dastardly “War on 9/11.” Will the hard left never cease its evil crusades?
In April, President Obama signed the Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act, which includes federal authorization “to establish September 11 as an annually recognized National Day of Service and Remembrance.” This is an effort led by 9/11 family members and others to encourage volunteerism, such as assistance at food banks.
The right has gone apeshit over this, labeling it as a “desecration” of 9/11. As brilliantly analyzed by Sadly No, Ted Kennedy’s Serve America Act is yet another “hard left” “war” on a national holiday, making it.
. . . Obama’s vilest plot yet, his plot against September 11, the day on which no other subject is to be discussed and on which all Americans are supposed to be dressed in the blackest of crepe bathed in the bitterest of tears.
An excellent example of this lunacy is Obama’s Plan to Desecrate 9/11, a column by Matthew Vadum in the American Spectator.
Sadly, No captures the sinister essence of this evil War on Rudy G.’s favorite day of the year:
According to Matthew, if Obama has his way, September 11 would be renamed “tarehe kumi na moja mwezi wa tisa,” which is Swahili for September 11 and which no ordinary American can ever remember, much less pronounce. School children will no longer be allowed to sing 9-11 songs at their 9-11 pageants, but will instead be forced to sing socialist stuff like “This Land is My Land,” “L’Internationale” (in French!!! ) and “Big Yellow Taxi.”
Yes, God Forbid that 9/11 should be remembered as 9/11 families wish, by helping those less fortunate and other public service.
The Spectator’s Vadum makes a wonderful (Freudian?) slip, however, when he writes:
The plan is to turn a “day of fear” that helps Republicans into a day of activism called the National Day of Service that helps the left. In other words, nihilistic liberals are planning to drain 9/11 of all meaning.
Nice to see a winger admit that 9/11 is a “day of fear” that helps Republicans!
Of course, the Spectator commenters are a bit less subtle than Matthew, including one who wittily contributes the following:
So, basically, he’s turning Sept. 11 in to National Radical Negro Day.
Hail Nero! Hail Caligula! Heil Hitler!
This guy is gonna make REAL AMERICANS – (You heard me) – REAL AMERICANS, Americans who LOVE this country, rise up. You thought that there could never be another Revolution? This THING in the White House is TRYING to destroy this country. This is gonna get ugly. Mark My Words.
Couldn’t have said it better myself. To completely round it out, add something about death panels, OK?
