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.
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.
* 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.
