The White House, in its ever growing nanny-state, has taken this a step too far.
Coming out with guidelines on how to observe the attacking of America on 9-11.
They want this to be a global observance. To show that this attack was not just about America, but on the world. That somehow we must not focus on America and the heroes of 9-11. We can't talk about al queda, because bin laden is gone.
The whole thing about issuing any guidelines for this attack is just plain disrespectful.
This attack was about America. It was an attack on America. Of course other nationalities died. But that was not the focus. They just happened to be there doing a job. The attacks were planned and focused on America and our way of life. Period.
They did not fly places into London, Hong Kong, or anywhere else. They targeted Americans.
What makes this even harder to swallow, is that we forget the attack on the Pentagon on the same day. Pure terrorism attacking Americans and our freedoms.
There is no need for the White House to somehow want to cower away from what 9-11 is. Obviously they want to not offend anyone. They don't want us to observe the real thing. We need to understand, to get other countries to feel good about us.
The whole thing is completely disrespectful.
This was an attack on the United States, our citizens, our freedoms, our way of life.
And we need to observe that and never forget the true meaning of what 9-11 was. We cannot let a White House bent on apologizing all over the world for our way of life, change the true meaning of 9-11.
We urge you to write the White House and your congressmen to let them know your displeasure in any such disrespectful guidelines about observing 9-11.
Americans are FREE to decide how they should observe such an attack, no matter how the White House tries to spin it.
Completely disrespectful and very shameful.
