Skip to comments.Daily Kos Holocaust Denial: 9/11 Attacks 'Were More About Optics Than Actual Harm'
Posted on 08/12/2010 11:43:05 AM PDT by Nachum
While the Ground Zero Mosque controversy strikes the media as an opportunity for "healing" that's being denied by stubborn conservatives, the leftists at the Daily Kos see it as an opportunity for Holocaust Denial. The blogger known as "Something the Dog Said" dropped this jaw-dropping paragraph Thursday morning about fear of Muslims:
Given that they are such a small minority in this nation, it is odd that so many of our fellow citizens see them as such a threat. Yes, the 9/11 attacks were horrific, but they were more about optics than actual harm. The economy was already taking a hit before the Twin Towers fell. The reaction of the nation to seeing two major buildings in New York fall on T.V. has boosted the attack out of proportion. While the loss of even a single life is to be condemned and the devastation these deaths caused the families of those killed, more than this number of teens are killed every year in car crashes. These are also tragic losses but we do not make the kind of high profile issue of it that the 9/11 attacks are.

“Something the Dog Said”?
Well the cat says that Woofer is woofin’.
“Something the Dog Said” is full of dog sh*t.
For liberals, 9-11 was enthralling.
And just so there is no misunderstanding later, anything I do during that meeting is intended more for the optics than any actual harm.
So how about executing as many communists per year as the number of people who die in car crashes in that period? Would that be no big deal then?
“Yes, the 9/11 attacks were horrific, but they were more about optics than actual harm.”
Two things bother me here. First, the absolute minimization of 3,000 lives lost when we all know the author is shilling for Saudi money. The other is the use of the word “optics”. Optics has a real meaning, but it is now a new “progressive” buzzword to distance the obvious odiousness of a thing or occurence and to annoint the speaker with special insight. I find this author’s statement repugnent. Imagine if I were to say: “Yes the holocaust was horrific, but it was more about optics than actual harm.” See what I mean. Dispicable.
Liberalism is a mental disease....proof abounds in the confines of the place of liberal idiocy known as the Daily Kos...on a daily basis... =.=
“While the loss of even a single life is to be condemned and the devastation these deaths caused the families of those killed, more than this number of teens are killed every year in car crashes. These are also tragic losses but we do not make the kind of high profile issue of it that the 9/11 attacks are.”
So this brain dead animal on DailyKos finds equality between the thousands of deaths and billions in destruction caused intentionally, deliberately by a handful of people and accidents that no one set out to produce; as if mere body counts, and not motives are the substance of such tragedies.
What’s the flipping deal with the word “optics” being used everywhere? Was it Rush that pointed this out a couple days ago? Good Grief
At least six million babies have been aborted in this country since the liberals got their “freedom of choice” enacted, so why are we still upset at Hitler for the same number of murdered Jews?
Leftist logic in action.
Rhetorical question: Which end of the dog said this???
I love your type of thinking - LOL.
3000 people...two 100 story buildings.Nope,no actual harm there.
The Daily Kook-Kiddies are at it again.
Just like the idiot liberals use of the word "gravitas" during one of the previous presidential elections.
The use of new terms and words must come directly from the Democratic Party faxes and e-mails because, out of the blue, the term or word is used on the same day by every liberal propoganda outlet and talking head.
Liberals are not smart enough, en mass or otherwise, to start using new words and terms.
This kind of double speak is proof they are all using Democratic talking points.
Unlike the finance business people in the WTC.
“These are also tragic losses but we do not make the kind of high profile issue of it that the 9/11 attacks are.”
Someone could say the same about all wars, Hiroshima, whatever.
But they don’t, because they would be COMPLETELY missing the point.
But that’s leftards for ya.
Whats the flipping deal with the word optics being used everywhere?
The MSM and liberal outlets are so entrenched in repeating the talking points handed to them, any new buzz word goes viral. This is just further evidence of the coordination.
Another "Gravitas" moment...
“the 9/11 attacks were horrific, but they were more about optics than actual harm”
What the hell is this “optics?” What the hell does it have to do with my eye doctor?
Its no big deal, really, that a kook website would print stuff like this from a moral imbecile.
Its a big deal that these kooks are the intellectual giants of a movement that has control of the White House and both houses of congress.
This is the great weakness of any democratic system. What happens the day the moral imbeciles outnumber the decent and can consistently outvote them at the polls?
I wasn’t aware the misuse of the word ‘optics’ had gone ‘viral’ in libdom. Is is intended to mean “had we not seen it on television it never would’ve been such a big deal”?
After all, why else would they fly those planes into the towers in the dead of night so the fires could light up the sky in a pyre that could be spotted for 100 miles and when the buildings and streets of Lower Manhattan were deserted and ...
... oh, wait a minute ...

“The reaction of the nation to seeing two major buildings in New York fall on T.V. has boosted the attack out of proportion. “
Out of proportion to what? To someone yelling “towel head”? Oh, I forgot. Yelling “towel head” is a “hate crime” and flying occupied planes into occupied buildings is just because we’re Christians and Jews and George Bush and we’re all bad Christians and Jews and should feel guilty for being Christians and Jews and it’s not a hate crime because we deserved it for the Crusades and because someone once yelled “towel head.”
< bitter sarcasm. I will never forget 9/11 and I will never forgive. Anyone who is offended by this deserves to be offended.>
What part of Al Qaeda declaring war on the U.S. does Kos fail to understand?
Our “progressive” friends are in fantasyland.
9/11 deaths 2,819
The left are not the people their grandparents were. No character. No judgment. No intellect.
Just like Pearl Harbor.
Pearl Harbor wasn't televised. We chased them all the way back to their homeland and burned them into vapor.
Different generation. Different stuff. Our parents weren't raised on television and didn't give a rip about optics.
“Optics” aren’t the problem. Liberalism is. Lack of knowledge is. Lack of courage is. Lack of common sense is. Lack of maturity is. Lack of reality is.
from August 2010, with a sidebar from 2006. Thanks Nachum.
