Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Reflections on 9/11, a decade later

For those of you on the left, feel free to Google “9/11/2001” if the date doesn’t ring a bell for you.

All of us who weren’t in a drug-induced stupor recall exactly what we were doing when the attacks came and when we first got word of it.  I’ll spare you the play-by-play of what I was doing, other than to say that the first plane hitting the WTC made me think it was an aviation accident.  Obviously, the second plane hitting the other tower minutes later cleared up that misconception.

In the days immediately following, I had never seen patriotism and unity like that in my life, and I haven’t seen it since.  I doubt I ever will again, either.  I recall getting chills watching then-House Minority Leader Dick Gephardt (a man I did not hold in high esteem) give an impassioned “This is war!” speech that drew a standing ovation from the entire chamber.  I remember legislators falling over themselves to shake our Commander in Chief’s hand during Bush’s joint Congressional appearance a few days later.

Then, three years later…the country was one state away (Ohio) from sending to the Oval Office a liberal Masshole with a shameful record of crapping on the American soldiers and palling around with Hanoi Jane.  His “service” to this country was a resume-padding means-to-an-end for that schmuck.  Yet here we were as a country, pretty much back to the attitude we had before 9/11/2001, hung up on matters that should have paled in comparison to the big matter of “Who will keep us safer?”  Luckily, the blueblood with a lackluster record of achievement was found to be the weaker link.  But were our attention spans really that short?

Then the unthinkable happened: Seven years after that fateful day in 2001, the country elected an unaccomplished leftist ideologue who had never run so much as a lemonade stand, but had plans on bringing the American economy to its knees worse than it already was.  Why did Americans do such a foolish thing?  Because the brother was adept at reading a teleprompter.  Because he could orate in glittering generalities and vague, non-specific niceties.  Because it was the “in” thing to do, so we could tell our friends and neighbors “See?  I’m not racist!  I voted for the black guy!”  Because he would give us more government goodies than the old dude who, unlike Kerry, actually did serve his country with honor and dignity and withstood years of torture and imprisonment rather than crap on his fellow soldiers.  With the willing accomplices in the kamikaze media, it was a fait accompli.

Sure, there are some signs that the country is waking up to its mistake of 2008.  But the damage has been done, possibly irreparably so, and I submit to you that the damage done by four years of liberal legislative assault and 2.5 years of socialist executive rule far exceeds the carnage that was experienced ten years ago.  As I watched the History Channel this week, all those memories came rushing back to me, along with the realization that our country doesn’t learn its lessons well anymore.

I pray for the family members and friends of those whose lives were lost ten years ago today.  Their pain is a kind that I hope I never experience, ever. I also pray for my country: may it return to the roots that made us great and the envy of the world.

UPDATE:  Welcome, moonbats!  I see I got a plug from Her Highness, Queen Andrew the Power Glutes, and Excitable Andy’s pals at the Village Idiot’s Voice.  What, were the welfare lines closed today?  Anywho, the honor’s all…well, yours.

  1. A most elegant post sir! I personally blame LIBERALISM. Shrillary said “it was patriotic to disagree with the President of the United States” when Bush was President but it’s rascist now!
    After 9/11 there was a lot of patriotism being displayed…….for about a month. Then it was politics-as-usual again. The MSM and the democrat politicians ticked me off when they would NOT allow any video of the planes crashing into the twin towers during the presidential elections since 9/11. Massging the facts.
    I wonder how bad the media will “massage” the facts for next year’s election?

    Well la-de-da, Mr Man. I was in a drug induced stupor and I still remember exactly what I was doing. I never did get to see the end of that Muhammed Ali documentary that disappeared from my screen to be replaced by the image of a burning tower, soon to be two burning towers. And you know what I did then? I smoked more pot and stared at the screen glumly thinking about the dying and knowing that the reaction from the U.S., which scum like you would cheer on, would make the numbers that died that day seem a pittance.

  3. Well since this post is political, my two cents: I do not agree with most of liberalism, but a lot of liberals were affected by 9/11 more so than you were. It’s really hard to forget that day when everyone knows someone or has lost someone close, monuments are all over the city, and downtown remains part construction site, part annoying tourist attraction (I get wanting to see it, but smiling and taking pictures in front of the rubble was just weird). Yes, some groups of people have taken an opportunity to further their political agendas (including some 9/11 family members). But please don’t say that everyone on the left has forgotten that day.

    As for your choice of presidents – while I voted for McCain, I don’t think everyone voted for Obama because it was the “in” thing to do. Heck the guy is half white, let’s remember and most people in this country have moved past black and white. You don’t have to like Kerry either. If you want to dis his service…whatever, I wasn’t there and won’t judge. But to say he did nothing, while Bush served in the National Guard (coincidence that a rich kid got in) and Cheney deferred service five times is rather disingenuous. I believe it was the Bush campaign in early 2000 that put out the idea that McCain wasn’t fit either because of the trauma he suffered as a POW. Now who fell for that crap?

    I’m with you, however, wanting my country to become even greater. Unfortunately we have elected officials who hardly represent their constituents anymore – most are lawyers whose skills are basically arguing to win whether the premise is right or wrong. Most have been there way too long. Seeing senators whose faces I remember from my junior high school years says a lot.

    Sorry to start an argument so early in the morning. Alright, no I’m probably not. Have a good day!

    No worries, Alli. Too much dog squeeze there for me to address, so I won’t waste my time or yours.

    Have a good day!

    You do the same! 🙂

  6. Uh-huh. LOL If you go to HotAir, there’s a “Last Funeral” post which pretty much sums up how I feel…one of the ways I feel, at least.
