What is up with liberals and their anti-patriotism?
Most of the nation took the time to recognize the tragedy of 9/11/01 on Sunday, the tenth anniversary of the brutal attacks by Muslim extremists on American soil.
But far from being dissuaded by the memories and associated grief of everything and everyone we lost that day, there were some liberals who took the opportunity instead to push their typical spiteful agenda.
The New York Times’ Paul Krugman, for example, spouted off this opinion… after making sure to disable readers’ ability to comment for what he called “obvious reasons” (namely that he is a close-minded coward):
“What happened after 9/11 – and I think even people on the right know this, whether they admit it or not – was deeply shameful. The 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.”
Talk about a lack of unity when the rest of the nation is solemn with remembrance, huh? Not to mention a lack of memory, considering that George W. Bush secured domestic American soil against terrorist attacks for the next seven years… a feat made even more impressive by Barack H. Obama’s gaping failures in this area.
Not to be dissuaded by logic anymore than patriotism however, Krugman’s fellow lefty, Professor Tom Engelhardt, commemorated 9/11 by asking insanely insensitive questions such as “Haven’t we had enough of ourselves?” and “Isn’t it time to… remove 9/11 from our collective consciousness?”
According to Engelhardt, Americans exploit the memory of 9/11 in order to “make ourselves feel like a far better country than we are.” And he makes a concerted effort to stress that the losses we suffered ten years ago really weren’t that big of a deal.
With rhetoric like that, no wonder liberals are so often categorized as unpatriotic! (And heartless. And elitist. And egocentric.)
If those two men are the rule and not the exception, then it’s very obvious that most liberals care very little for their homeland to the point of actually hating it.
Which leaves me with a very important question: If they can’t stand the amber waves of grain and sea to shining sea, why in the world don’t they just leave?
We certainly don’t want them.
