While Barack Obama is busy in Turkey continuing the same pandering to Islam that we heard for the last eight years from Bush, we also continue to pander to our Islamic enemies here.
The latest is the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey’s decision to change the name of the new World Trade Center from “Freedom Tower” to One World Trade Center.
It’s bad enough that it’s taken this long to rebuild on the site where 3,000 Americans were murdered by Arab Muslims. But even worse is the decision that the name would be changed to a simple address, because we don’t want to anger the enemy. The Port Authority’s “logic” is that calling it “Freedom Tower” would make it more of a terrorist target.
[T]he 102-story Freedom Tower’s name could make it more susceptible to future attacks than a symbol of defiance against it.
Freedom Tower a/k/a 1 WTC: Their Design . . .
Someone might want to remind them that on the two occasions–in 1993 and 2001–when it was attacked by terrorists, it was called the World Trade Center, not “Freedom Tower.” Adding the number One to the name or changing it away from “freedom” won’t make terrorists hate us any less. In fact, it will make them hate us more. They see what sniveling, pandering idiots we are.
If I could name the tower, I’d call it the Freedom’s One Finger Salute Tower, America Greets Freedom’s Enemies Tower, or Al-Qaeda Welcoming Center. And I’d have designed it with a different type of “spire.” I asked David Lunde to make the three designs above of how the building would look if I could design it.
Freedom Tower: My Designs . . .
Those who insisted on the name change from Freedom Tower to One World Trade Center simply don’t understand Islam. The only thing Muslims understand is courage and brute force.
It’s ironic that the decision on the name change was announced by Port Authority, Chairman Anthony Coscia, which is pronounced “Koh-Sha.” Hey, Tony, you’re pandering to Islam on the site where it murdered thousands of Americans is absurd. It just ain’t Coscia.
Oh, and one other thing: the new tower will be 1,776 feet high. Gee, I wonder what happened in 1776.
Presumably, to the namers of this tower, the irony was lost. To them, neither 1776 nor the ability to freely rebuild after a devastating attack on America, represent freedom.
Just another address.
