SRM — stark raving mad!
They attack us on Sept. 11th, because we are America, and some politically correct types are offended that someone would raise our flag????
Well, heck, I’m offended that they attacked us on Sept. 11th. So that makes us even, right???? If we’re going to get into a p*((*g contest about who is offended by what.
That image became a US postage stamp.
I display a framed sheet in a book case.
.......as well Its should have.
Their Madness is Evil to the core.
Instead they went with the pictures of the Occupiers burning the American Flag....
“trying to wrangle any sense out the illogic of the “progressives” logic” leads nowhere.
bottom line theyre evil fools.
Wouldn't that have just been so special then !!
From the article:
I really believe that the way America will look best, the way we can really do best, is to not be Americans so vigilantly and so vehemently, Shulan said.”
They would also be ok with 3 gay guys, wearing only thongs, raising a rainbow flag.
Just like those 19 firefighters who recently lost their lives in the Arizona wildfires-oh wait, they were all white too. Guess they’ll have to fix that.
And the photos of falling bodies were probably excluded for being too real.
Progressive leftists disgust me. There was nothing complex about 9-11. It was very simple.
Muslim terrorists attacked America, and killed 3,000 civilians without provocation. End of story.
It was only a complex event in the delusional mind of progressive leftists, who have to jump through all kinds of mental hoops to mold reality to their delusional worldview.
That is the monument they should have gone with.
Blame the victim. It’s not just for cases of rape anymore.
Dear God, please give us a man like Ronald Reagan again. Someone who not only believes in the greatness of America, but moves others to see it also!
Amen to that!
“..Bottom line they’re evil fools....”
They’re sick, evil fools. Liberalism is a mental disease.
What you’re seeing is the symptoms of it.
Its a chronic disease with no known cure. it rots out the brain to the point where rational thought can no longer happen. They become self-loathing, hating, despicable little creatures. In the final stages of the disease, they commit extreme violence has we’ve all witnessed in the media.
They, in essence, become the “walking dead”...mentally speaking, of course. They will eventually get us all killed if left to their own without proper supervision (straight jackets).
The day after 9/11, I was in our United Methodist church office helping organize a prayer service for the next night that would be advertised to anyone who wanted to come from the local community. Someone suggested that, among other things, we pray for the message of love taught by Jesus to be heard and understood by those who would hate and destroy. A loony Democrat committeewoman who was present objected to that. She said it would be offensive, since people who don't believe in Jesus might come to an open-doors prayer service in our Christian church.
I am not making this up.
And I forgot to add: the pastor agreed with her.
Someone at the U.N. must’ve objected...
You should have jumped to you feet and shouted:
GET OUT! The power of Christ commands you.
Yeah, and him too.
Yes! That’s exactly what we need!
It sounds as though a bunch of America-haters are running this “museum”. Figures. We don’t want to “offend” the Islamoterrorist murderers who visit there in order to celebrate their “great victory over the Great Satan”.
This makes one wonder how we ever won the greatest war ever. Can you imagine trying to coddle the Nazis or the Japanese while we were fighting them?
The New Yorkers wanted to elect Weiner as their mayor. He’s still at 19% approval rating.
They adore his wife, Huma.
She is a muslim. They want her as first lady of New York.
She is Muslim Brotherhood.
They adore her. she is glamorous. That shot of her mother barreling into Manhattan today ought to give them pause.
They are, as a culture, unprincipled.
Highest rate per capita of abortions.
Their history is rich in patriotism, the Churches are beautiful, built by the immigrants to remind them of the faith of their fathers.
They certainly forget that they are obligated as Americans. They don’t consider needing the rest of the country.
They are inconsiderate with this despicable mayoral candidate and his operative wife - one, worse than the other.
They need a revival.
After the towers came down and revealed God to them in many ways, they got back to cynicism.
I don’t know.
What these leftist assholes don’t realize, or don’t want to realize, or will never realize, is that perhaps one photo can sum up an event better than a collage or a book.
I just visited my 93 year old father-in-old in an eldcare recovery home (from a bad fall and hospital stay). To him, and his family (including myself, a Vietnam/Cambodia war journalist and my son, Op. Iraqi Freedom combat vet), Jim’s war was summed up by the American flag flying over Mt. Surabachi on Iwo Jima. It flew over his decimated unit, the 75th JASCO (Joint Assault Signal Company), US Army, Signal Corps.
No other words were needed to understand what it meant.
The same could be said of the photo of the sunken USS Arizona at Pearl Harbor (or the exploding USS Shaw destroyer), or of our men and Philippino troops on the infamous Bataan Death March), or a photo of the gassed and cremated bodies of Jews and Poles at Auschwitz (which included members of my family).
How about the picture of the US Marines charging into Bellieu Woods in WW1, or drawings of Teddy Roosevelt’s “Rough Rider” charge up San Juan Hill? The same for photos the Civil War dead at Antietam or Gettysburg?
Remember the photo of a wounded GI holding the head of another wounded GI in Vietnam? Or of our artillerymen firing 105’s at Khe Sanh?
Sometimes one photograph says it all. The rest, as they say in the news business, is “commentary”.
We have too many “exhibitionists” and not enough “heros” on display. Time to revise this trendy trend.
Something is VERY wrong in New York.
Now that you mention it...don’t two of the men in the photo at the top of this thread look to have been darkened?
And then this "freedom" tower?? What the hell is that they put on top? It looks like an Islamic minaret. Are they kidding me with this crap? It's a giant trophy to Al-Qaeda.
hey assholes....we ARE Americans, we were attacked by arabs, and screw anyone who can’t handle that fact
and make her Sarah Palin
I still have the photo with Bush on the microphone, and I was still in canada during that time. Heck, i thought it was THAT photo.
Yet Sissy Boy Michael Shulan has no problem making money off of 9/11
Glad we have it!
America, under the Moslem Impostor, celebrates,
arms, and supports al Qaeda and its terror.
No doubt, the victims of 911 will soon be claimed to have
There is NO honesty in the USA as it has
devolved to support terror, terrorists, and slavery.
Shulan had worked on a popular post-9/11 photography exhibit called Here is New York in Soho when he was hired by Alice Greenwald, director of the museum, for his unique approach.
As we continue to ignore the elephant in the room.
...Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
These images matter so much. On my profile page, I've got a couple of other images that I think show why.
Your sin is you love your country. Liberals suffer from oikophobia - fear of home or the familiar. Anybody who loves America is an ignorant dupe. It’s also projection.
