On 9/11/2001, I went into work like normal. I worked at a Newspaper, improving their Internet presence. My office was in the Press building. When a friend came in and said, "A plane has hit the Twin Towers". And I thought, "another silly pilot flew into it while in fog or something, like happened to the Empire State Building in 1945."... but I went down to the Newsroom to see the hubbub and read/watch what was coming across the wire. This is about my experiences, how the FakeNews has distorted history, and used a tragedy to divide and polarize us.
|What happened on and after 9/11||The left's revisions of history is that after 9/11, they behaved well and that the nation came together. Then the Iraq War and the Bush Lies divided us.||The truth is that the left blamed the U.S. for 9/11 from the start, used it as an opportunity to divide us (as they always do), and many of the historical revisions they do to this day, polarize us between those who remember what happened, and the Democrats.|

The Towers Fell -
Some People - Ilhan Omar was on video saying the terrorist supporting, anti-semitic CAIR, was founded because they recognized "Some people did something", meaning Islamic Terrorists took down the Twin Towers on 9/11. Fair was actually founded nearly a decade earlier. President Trump tweeted the video because it shows the truth about the left's PC apologism for 9/11. The left couldn't argue the facts, so they put their lie-machine in overdrive. WaPo FakeNews'ed by trying to claim that Bush said it too... before we'd identified the source of the attack (as if the context was the same). Atlantic tried to deflect for her. Other operatives for the DNC pretended that Trump was inciting violence or islamaphobia by showing the video of Ilhan's own words. This is moronic, the Republicans love her! She's the poster-child for stupid, racist (anti-Semitic), Politically Correct terrorist apologism. They need her to run-against in 2020. They're more likely to hire a security detail for her, than wish any harm on her. But still, Dems started a "#IStandWithIlhan", and cries about poor her, for having her own message magnified. The fake pearl clutching is an insult to our intelligence, and is obvious gaslighting.
9/11 Imaginary Unity -
The truth is that just weeks after the attack (before the smoke had cleared and ground zero had been cleaned up):
- Thousands of protesters were marching in the streets of NYC, blaming the attacks on President Bush.
- They had never dropped their lie that he (or the Supreme Court) had stolen the election from Al Gore, and this just magnified it. (It didn't slow until Bush won resounding re-election against John Kerry... but then the narrative shifted to blaming Bush/allies for telling the truth about Kerry's Swift-boat chicken-hawk heroism).
- The Universities were holding “teach-ins,” with faculty arguing that America had this coming for its colonialism, capitalism, and racism!
- Everyone could hear mumblings from many of their leftist friends about all the things wrong that had contributed, from this was revenge for the Crusades (seriously) or meddling in the middle east, or various other excuses to fit their narrative that America is always wrong.
9/11 and the NYT - New York Times. Under twitter blowback, they removed the tweet (without apology or a firing of the person responsible). . Again, imaginary unity. In reality it is the left against History, Facts and America.
Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11 -
Militia and United Airlines Flight 93 - A column from Sept 2001 (National Review Online) explained the basics of why the Militia hasn't been superseded by the National Guard. On 09/11 who prevented United Airlines Flight 93 from reaching its target? The National Guard? The regular Army? The D.C. Police Department? None of these had a presence on Flight 93 because, in a free society, professional law-enforcement and military personnel cannot be everywhere. Terrorists and criminals are well aware of this — indeed, they count on it. Who is everywhere? The people the Founders referred to as the "general militia."Cell-phone calls from the plane revealed that it was members of the general militia, not organized law enforcement, who successfully prevented Flight 93 from reaching its intended target and saved the lives of many others, by sacrificing their own. That's why the general militia is better than the organized militia, and always will be. We used to call it civic responsibility.
Trump and the Disabled Reporter -
9/11 could have been about bringing us together: and for a brief moment, some of that did happen. But the left can never let an opportunity (to politicize something, and divide us) go to waste. So they did exactly that. They fought to polarize us based on memorials that went up, the left was decrying the widespread abuses against Muslims that never really happened, they revised the history on how well they behaved (they didn't), they tried to edit out that some celebrated, they tried to rewrite the history and then are shocked that some people protest. To the America haters, America behaving well can never be left alone.
