We must,unfortunately, begin today's commemoration of 9/11 with the nadir of suffusive, brain retardant "left-wing think" from none other than Paul Krugman of the NY Times OUR ALIEN ATTACK ECONOMIST, who laments:
Indeed, Paul Krugman! Fascinating, but not unexpected, from a man such as Krugman, so obnoxiously liberal that Obama, to him, is the second coming of Thomas Jefferson. Krugman finds something both odd and not odd at the same time... an emotion that we Conservatives often feel about Liberals, far too often.
In Krugman's column on 9/11, he enigmatically finds America's sense of subdual as an oddity, which then brings those of who of us who are either blessed or cursed with true common sense into a heartfelt seasoning of outrage, yet again. But then Krugman corrects himself by stating that "it's not really that odd."
Uh-oh, get ready whenever Liberal pundits correct themselves in a literary stuttering format. Ergo, here it comes:
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. And then the attack was used to justify an unrelated war the neocons wanted to fight, for all the wrong reasons.
Here, and once again, as through the lengthy annals of Socialism's failures , Krugman seeks to deploy the communistic format of historical revisionism. After 9/11, Bush and virtually every Democrat in Congress and America were in total and complete agreement. Whoever did this terrible act would be found and would be punished; whomever threatened us would also be corrected, preemptively, if necessary. It was a stance of rabid defiance and complete defense.
As I recall, it was not just the neocons either. Pretty much everyone was ready for the fight, except the knee-knocking liberals who preferred a stance of lily-livered appeasement, as is typical.
But we do find it poignant that Krugman would seek to cast the blame on the "horrible hero's" of 9/11, being those who's first thought was to both protect and defend.
This, no doubt, would include the many firefighters, policemen and first responders who also lost their lives on that day. Krugman pretty much denigrates the memory of each and every one of those brave and heroic men and women.
The feeling, I am certain, is not lost on either me or the reader, that Krugman most likely counts the death-dealing terrorists as the true hero's of his 9/11.
Krugman goes on:
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?
Once again, Krugman completely leaves out the poisonous ideology of radical Islam, which became the actual act of an atrocity-- in the hijacking of a religion for the purpose of exploitation and barbarianism and violence. In fact, at no point in his column does Krugman mention the actual evil-doers. Instead, Krugman seeks to politicize one of the nation's most horrible sneak attacks into a diatribe opposing the defense of America against all threats to it's defining civilization.
The memory of 9/11 has been irrevocably poisoned; it has become an occasion for shame. And in its heart, the nation knows it.
Indeed Mr. Krugman, your shame knows no bounds, and your misleading ideology showcases only the need for those of your mindset to be defeated and soundly, if not completely, in 2012.
The true shame within this nation is not the defense against a cowardly attack by barbarians, but rather, the true shame lies in the millions of people like Krugman. A man so cowardly that he chose to close his column to comments rather than allowing people to refute him within his own column.
A man who makes not one mention of the evil aggressors who started this war in the name if Islam, and who, even now, plot ways to kill us while Krugman cries foul against the hero's of our defense.
Typical and, yes, expected, but then, we all know deep down that if Krugman's aliens actually did attack we Americans, Krugman would find some way to take their side as well.
