"Those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it"
Besides a brief appearance at the Pentagon, how did Richard Milhous Obama and Moochelle remember the events of yesterday 13 years ago?
They volunteered for a children's non-profit called KaBOOM! (Twitchy).
Because they don’t want us to remember. They want us to “serve.”
It's because under Obama (back in 2009), the liberal mantra of "Forget 9/11" has been how they transformed that sacred day into "Mow Your Neighbor's Lawn Day" thus diluting the meaning of the day, thanks to liberal America-haters like Van Jones (American Spectator).
Let’s hope that’s not true. Some commie Care Bear contrived “day of service” is no way to remember the worst attack on U.S. soil in history. Service is great but it’s not how you commemorate an act of war—especially while the war is still being fought.
The Obama White House is behind a cynical, coldly calculated political effort to erase the meaning of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks from the American psyche and convert Sept. 11 into a day of leftist celebration and statist idolatry.
This effort to reshape the American psyche has nothing to do with healing the nation and everything to do with easing the nation along in the ongoing radical transformation of America that President Obama promised during last year's election campaign. The president signed into law a measure in April that designated Sept. 11 as a National Day of Service, but it's not likely many lawmakers thought this meant that day was going to be turned into a celebration of ethanol, carbon emission controls, and radical community organizing.
The administration's plans were outlined in an Aug. 11 White House-sponsored teleconference call run by Obama ally Lennox Yearwood, president of the Hip Hop Caucus, and Liv Havstad, the group's senior vice president of strategic partnerships and programs.
Yearwood, who uses the honorific "Reverend" before his name, has been in the news in recent years, usually for getting arrested. After Democrats took back Congress, the rowdy activist was handcuffed outside a congressional hearing in September 2007 when Gen. David Petraeus was to testify. Yearwood told the "Democracy Now" radio program that he wanted to attend the hearing to hear Petraeus give his report. "I knew that when officers lie, soldiers die," he said.
On the Aug. 11 call, Yearwood and other leaders kept saying repeatedly that they wanted 9/11 to be used for something "positive," "forward-leaning," and "productive," said a source with knowledge of the teleconference.
The plan is to turn a "day of fear" that helps Republicans into a day of activism called the National Day of Service that helps the left. In other words, nihilistic liberals are planning to drain 9/11 of all meaning.
...On Aug. 4, the White House offered a glimpse into its plans to desecrate 9/11 for political advantage. (Van) Jones appeared in a largely ignored 33-minute video posted on the official blog of the White House to discuss the administration's plan to flush 9/11 down the memory hole just as it has tried to do by rechristening the Global War on Terror the "Overseas Contingency Operations."
Of this National Day of Service, Jones says little except that it will be a great opportunity "for people to connect, to find other people in your peer group who are also passionate about repowering America but also greening up America and cleaning up America."Look, service isn't bad, but on 9/11? Which leads any rational person to think this was a calculated strategy.
Because we've seen what the Obamas REALLY think about 9/11 (flashback to 2011).
"All this for a damn flag?"
Is it any wonder why Benghazi happened on 9/11, two years ago, and we are now facing a threat from ISIS, who represent the same ideology that attacked us in 2001? Because America-hating leftists like the Obamas and Democrats appear more intent on having us Forget 9/11 instead of remembering it.
