The Years of Shame

Is it just me, or are the 9/11 commemorations oddly subdued?
Actually, I don’t think it’s me, and it’s not really that odd.
What happened after 9/11 — and I think even people on the right know this, whether they admit it or not — was deeply shameful. Te atrocity should have been a unifying event, but instead it became a wedge issue. Fake heroes like Bernie Kerik, Rudy Giuliani, and, yes, George W. Bush raced to cash in on the horror. And then the attack was used to justify an unrelated war the neocons wanted to fight, for all the wrong reasons.
A lot of other people behaved badly. How many of our professional pundits — people who should have understood very well what was happening — took the easy way out, turning a blind eye to the corruption and lending their support to the hijacking of the atrocity?
The memory of 9/11 has been irrevocably poisoned; it has become an occasion for shame. And in its heart, the nation knows it.
I’m not going to allow comments on this post, for obvious reasons.


      You are not going to allow or not allow me to make a comment on this post...which was not a post, but one of your illogical, ridiculous contributions that are regularly printed in the editorial section of the Old Grey Lady with lamentable frequency.

      In spite of the fact that Rosie knows that fire cannot burn steel, she, like you, answers questions that do not need to be asked.   For instance, she apparently is asking, "How can a building fall from fire when the girders are made of steel?    There! You see?  With my brilliant question I have proved that George Bush blew up the Twin Towers and Building Number 7.   I am such a brilliant person!"
      Why would one waste time showing Rosie how steel is poured, in liquid form...seething, hissing, orangish-red swirling mass of hellish liquid that later the magic of eggs that are made in a grocery store and placed in little styrofoam cartons 12 at a time....sheets and rods of hard metal-looking stuff ?

      What does Giuliani do that is so evil?   Is it that he objected to horrid, perverse people rubbing elephant dung into and onto a potrait of the BVM and calling it art?   Do you call it art, Mr. Klugman?    Are your heroes those who flock to the art galleries that might have a pickle jar with a crucifix in it, filled with urine, is "art"?
       What is to be expected of people at a time like 11 September 2001?  How does the reasonable mind comprehend it?    Pearl Harbour  was at least understandable in military terms....surprize attack....poorly guarded flotilla.... Japanese hegemony in the Orient.     But how can one understand people so devoid of souls that they will enslave the "Palestinian people" as a form of hostage to promote a false cause....that they will suddenly kill and maim without cause or rational reason women, children, Jew, Gentile, Muslim, Hindu, aetheist, or any other in the way of some deranged declaration of self-will.
       How is George Bush supposed to react?   Should he send a note saying something to the effect that "I got your message, and I agree with you.   America is a bad place and Americans are bad people so I am going to kill myself and everybody here.   You can have North America to include in your Caliphate.   Once again, please forgive us."
       You people are amazing.    You say among yourselves, "George Bush is stupid and ignorant.    Oh! My un-god!   He was born in Texas.    A place full of retards and bigots.   Stupid inbred hicks and hayseeds."    That is Monday.
         Come Tuesday and it becomes, " and then GHWBush gets into an SR-71 and flies to Paris where the deal is made to release the American Prisoners in Teheran the day Ronald Reagan is sworn into office.     And this man's son is appointed president of the United States so that he can continue the cover up of that incident and also protect the interests of Halliburton in the Middle East".     It would take quite a genius to orchestrate that.   Obviously, it could only be done by some intellect so advanced that only Valerie Plame and Joe Wilson could figure it out.   After all, Valerie was so smart that she could claim that Scooter Libby had outed her as a CIA employee, several months after she appeared in Vogue magazine talking about her life at the CIA, and after driving around for a good long while with a CIA parking permit on her auto's front windshield.
        Or, perhaps we can remember those noble moments....three weeks after the incident.   Hillary Rodham Clinton ....shrieking.....shrieking like a banshee....on the floor of the United States Senate...rattling a New York Post in her pure hands with the headline "BUSH KNEW".     She shrieked and cackled repeatedly  "BUSH KNEW!!  BUSH KNEW!!.....perhaps that was her lashing out because of the depression she felt, knowing that Chelsea was down at the Ground Zero Location when the planes hit....although as Rosie knows there were no planes, just halogenic images beamed up from American and British submarines in the Hudson River.

Below is a summary of  (Sir Edmund) Hillary's recollections about that fateful morning.   The words are taken from another source, but verified by national publications citied.


Hillary Clinton's Shameless Terror Tale
Hillary Clinton is one of the most shameless people and when she happens to come out of her cave to stand in front of a camera for a softball interview, her behavior becomes very apparent. Hillary Clinton appeared on NBC's Dateline and told viewers of a heartbreaking story about how her daughter Chelsea had cheated death that morning of Sept. 11th.

"She had gone on what she thought would be a great jog," Hillary Clinton explained. "She was going down to Battery Park, she was going to go around the towers. She was going to get a cup of coffee and - that's when the plane hit!"

Apparently Hillary Clinton's tragic tale of Chelseas near death experience was a big hit with the media. "At that moment, she was not just a Senator, but a concerned parent," TODAY show's Katie Couric told viewers.

Hillary Clinton's shameless exploit wasn't reported in the media when it was contradicted by Chelseas own take of that morning of Sept. 11th. After it was clearly contradicted by her own daughter, Hillary and the media didn't touch the story any longer. Chelsea Clinton wrote about her own experience in a Talk Magazine article.

Chelsea's story was simple: she did not mention any morning jog, she did not mention plans to go to Battery Park near the World Trade Center Towers, only to be stopped by a coffee break. In fact, Chelsea writes that she was at her friend's apartment on Park Avenue South miles from Ground Zero when she learned of the attacks!

"I stared senselessly at the television," Chelsea writes.

(Old Gringo's observations begin anew)
      But, of course, we have to cut Her Majesty some slack, because she was still dizzy from corkscrewing into....well, better yet, let me allow Her Majesty to explain it.....
 HILLARY CLINTON: "You know, we landed in one of those corkscrew landings and ran out because they said there might be sniper fire. I don't remember anybody offering me tea on the tarmac when that was happening."

    One must quickly note that Chelsea was honest in her remembrance of the events of 11 September 2011.   Her mother will be known in history as a mendacious, murderous, marxist hag.  While Chelsea could reasonably hate me for these observations, my only response to her would be that she, as a daughter, is too good for Hillary as a mother.

       What slugs and dregs we find on the left.   Pelosi, Teddy, Al, Jesse, Jeremiah, Weiner, there's not enough space in cyberspace for the roll call.   But one of the first in the roll call of dishonor, mendaciousness, and arrogance will be Mr. Paul Klugman.
More later.
