Only in America can Paul Krugman be so Hurtful and Hateful
Paul Krugman posted on his Conscience of a Liberal blog on the New York Times website a short column titled, “The Years of Shame“. I have re-posted the text of his entire column below with my comments in RED:
The Years of Shame by Paul Krugman:
Is it just me, or are the 9/11 commemorations oddly subdued?
Actually Mr. Krugman the answer in Sarasota, Florida is no. There are multiple commemorations including the dedication of a 9/11 memorial at Patriot’s Park in Venice, FL. Not sure if you remember but three of the 9/11 hijackers learned to fly their weapons of mass destruction here, including Mohammed Atta.
Actually, I don’t think it’s me, and it’s not really that odd.
No, Mr. Krugman, it is only you and your fellow liberals who are without a conscience. You and your fellow liberals are odd.
What happened after 9/11 — and I think even people on the right know this, whether they admit it or not — was deeply shameful. The 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.
The people on the right are proud to display our love of country and patriotism on days like 9/11, December 7th, Veterans Day, Memorial Day, etc. Unlike you this is not a wedge issue, rather it is an issue of national security. You see Mr. Krugman, we Americans look upon this as a direct attack against liberty and the entire free world. Two ideals you do not embrace. The wars in Afghanistan and Iraq were needed and necessary for our national security. For you see we are not fighting a War on Terror, we are engaged in a global war against shariah Islam. A geo-political, military, financial, judicial and social system that has announced its intent to kill you and me.
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?
There is no blind eye, there is however a hiding your head in the sand mentality on your part Mr. Krugman. With all due respect the real corruption laid in the hearts of the hijackers and those who continue to support the ideology that killed thousands on 9/11 – shariah Islam.
The memory of 9/11 has been irrevocably poisoned; it has become an occasion for shame. And in its heart, the nation knows it.
Sadly, Mr. Krugman it is you who is poisoned. It is you that Americans are ashamed of and this nation knows it. Your comments are both hateful and hurtful. Freedom of speech is a gift to you from the men and women in uniform who are fighting and dying to protect you, so you may speak without fear.
