Odd Lessons from 9/11: T-shirts, the Flu & Love Songs

By Debbie Schlussel
Some odd lessons from yesterday’s 9/11 anniversary and today’s news coverage of it show that we still haven’t learned a thing (some of us haven’t, anyway):
* Lesson #1: Thou shalt not wear t-shirts supporting the troops or remembering the attacks to a public school in America.
Fifteen students at Lincoln Park High School in the Detroit suburb of Lincoln Park were sent home because they wore t-shirts that featured 9/11 commemorative messages including, “I support my troops,” and a U.S. Navy T-shirt with “9/11″ on it.
Interesting that this happened in the same Detroit suburb, where earlier this year, Fitness USA caved to Muslims and built a dividing wall between men and women, so Muslim women could exercise hijab-free and without modest attire.

Only in America: “Former” Islamic Terrorist Imad Hamad

Gets More Respect Than Students Honoring 9/11 Victims

Moral: A private gym can be cowed by Muslim extremists who want to impose their religion on America; But Americans can no longer have free speech in public institutions on 9/11.
Oh, and where is the ACLU, defending these kids?
* Lesson #2: Thou shalt create silly civil liberties boards–whose members are Muslim extremists–to find ways to sacrifice security and safety against terrorism.
Detroit’s hip-hop, Pimp Daddy Mayor, Kwame “the Kingpin” Kilpatrick (whose uncle is a Muslim minister) decided to establish a Detroit “Freedom Board” to focus on protecting civil liberties at the cost of tighter security measures. Kilpatrick, who took junkets to Dubai and the UAE courtesy of Muslim and Arab groups, plans to appoint Muslims and consulted with FBI award revokee and “former” Islamic terrorist Imad Hamad on the plan.
He got the idea after watching a Ted Koppel special on Discovery Channel. Ted Koppel–the self-important, toupeed gift that keeps on giving.
* Lesson #3: Flu linked to air travel.
Well, this one we don’t object to. We just think it’s interesting how the obvious was proven by 9/11. Yesterday, researchers–led by Harvard epidemiologist John Brownstein–said they documented a late start in the flu season of 2001, which they attribute to the drop in air travel just after 9/11. They say this shows a correlation between the numbers of people traveling on planes and the rate of the spread of a virus.
Well, was it ever a secret that stale airplane air, full of germs, is recycled? Not really. But still, the research is interesting.
* Lesson #4: No love songs for extremist Muslims.
Islamic terrorists in Somalia, linked to Al-Qaeda, yesterday, allowed Radio Jowhar to go back on the air, so long as love songs and/or music are not played. Only “news,” readings from the Quran, and Islamic lectures can be broadcast.
* Lesson #5: Muslims are far less than 2.5% of the U.S. population.
A survey of 1721 people, conducted late last year by Gallup and analyzed by Baylor University’s Institute for Studies of Religion found that Jews were the smallest religion of note in America, with 2.5% of the population. All other faiths with less than 2.5%–that includes Islam–totalled 5%.
Hey, CAIR, stop lying and inflating the number of Muslims in America. Since Jews in America number only 5.2 million, this survey (and extrapolating from U.S. Census figures) shows the number of Muslims is far less than the 6-7 million Islamofascist propagandists claim.

Bush’s Karen Hughes @ IslamoFascist Confab: Where’s Her Outrage?

* Lesson #6: Attention, Karen Hughes–Read Your Own Writing & Send it to Muslims, Not USA Today.
Karen Hughes, Bush Under Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs (a fancy name for “Chief Apologist and Panderer to the IslamoFascist World”), has an op-ed piece in today’s USA Today, entitled “Where’s the Outrage?: A United World Must Resolutely Condemn Terror.” But she won’t come out and say that it’s Muslims (not other religions) that won’t condemn terror. And she repeats the statistical lie of the 6-7 million Muslims.
Karen, spare us your lecturing. We already condemn terror. It’s your buddies around the Islamofascist world and even here in America, at that ISNA Conference you pander to, who need to be lectured. If 5 years after 9/11, you haven’t figured that out, you should simply retire.

Debbie…I think it’s time to abandon “polite society” manners and organize to deal with these insolent, arrogant school administrators who apparently believe they are endowed with unlimited power and authority to selectively limit the right of free speech of patriotic American citizens.
The time has passed when we can continue to remain passive and politely turn the other cheek. This approach only encourages further encroachment on our rights.
I would very much like to see, as a starting point, a good public ass beating for the worst
dozen or so offendors in the school district.

That is EXACTLY what Karen Hughes, Bush and Condi are. Remember Bush is the president thanks only to wahabi wealth (that financed Bush’s failed businesses). Condi has no clue about Islam, much less about Jihad/Taquiya/Kitman/Umma. Karen Hughes is like the 4th wife whose duty is to please her Islamic masters.
But, an accurate description, Debbie.

This is the second stern rebuke I’ve seen of the Admin. in two days. The other is yesterday’s FrontPage symposium about 9-11, Five Years Later.
ACTUALLY, I REBUKE THE ADMINISTRATION ON THIS ISSUE (TERRORISM) AND ON IMMIGRATION ALL THE TIME.

Would you kindly share the equation you used in extrapolating the Muslim population from U.S. census figures?
That’s fascinating, especially since the U.S. census bureau hasn’t asked about religion in over fifty years.
LOOK UP EXTRAPOLATION IN THE DICTIONARY.

Isn’t Lincoln Park the school system that this year has banned all clothing with any words on them? (Among other numerous strict rules) I keep seeing stories in the Detroit News about those kids getting sent home for wearing their 1st Amendment shirts.
Assuming the “no words” part of the dress code has been enforced equally across the board, I don’t have any particular objection to those kids being sent home. I think the parents who have been encouraging their kids to break the rules are teaching their kids a bad lesson. Of course, they could just make them all wear uniforms, and that’d take care of any of any gray areas.

I didn’t think I’d get a direct answer. I was right.

I was thinking in terms of the “How far have we come in 5 years?” theme – and yours was one that stood out on yesterday’s anniversary. I’ll work on paying closer attention the other 364 days, too.
