What happened after 9/11 — and I think even people on the right know this, whether they admit it or not — was deeply shameful. Te 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.
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?
Krugman's column series is titled "The Conscience of a Liberal. If that's the case, then it could be said that liberalism in it's most extreme form is a mental disorder.
So to people like Paul Krugman, I say go f**k yourselves! It's assholes like you, Gordon Duff, Eugene Robinson, EJ Dionne, AFL-CIO head Richard "Little Dick" Trumpka, as well as a bunch of others who have spent the last years dividing this nation because you were the ones who only looked at 9/11 through a political prism. In doing so, you guys took over where the al-Queda terrorists left off.
