A Somber Anniversary

By Wyatt Earp | September 11, 2010

Nine years ago today, radical Islamists killed murdered 2,977 innocent people. It was the largest terror attack in history. And yet nine years later, liberals, the media, and even some residents of New York City are decrying the “racism and intolerance” of Americans like myself who are vehemently opposed to the Victory Mosque.

The Victory Mosque – a thirteen-story Islamic community center and prayer room – is Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf’s giant “F**k You” to America. The groundbreaking ceremony is tentatively scheduled for September 11th, 2011 – the tenth anniversary of their victory over the infidels.

The Imam/scumbag has said that America’s policies were an accessory to the WTC attacks, but that’s okay, because we should be tolerant of the Imam’s views. Some Americans believe we need to respect his rights.

I wonder if Imam Rauf respects Betty Ong’s rights?

Betty Ong was a stewardess on American Airlines Flight 11, which was the first airliner to fly into the WTC (specifically, into the North Tower).

Or maybe Imam Rauf respects Madeline Sweeney’s rights?

She was a flight attendant on American Airlines Flight 11, which crashed into the North Tower. She was on the phone with American Airlines manager Michael Woodward, who heard her last words:

“I see water. I see buildings. I see buildings! We are flying low. We are flying very, very low. We are flying way too low. Oh my God we are flying way too low. Oh my god!” (American 11 crashes.)

I wonder if Imam Rauf respects CeeCee Lyles’ rights?

CeeCee was a stewardess on United Flight 93, which crashed in Pennsylvania after the passengers fought back against the hijackers.

I wonder if Imam Rauf respects Kevin Cosgrove’s rights?

Kevin was inside the South Tower. He was on the line with 9-1-1 when the tower collapsed.

Personally, I don’t think Imam Rauf respects any American’s rights. Certainly not the Americans who were murdered on September 11th, 2001. He has shown that with his despicable decision to build a Victory Mosque where the Burlington Coat Factory once stood. That building was severely damaged on 9-11 when landing gear and pieces of fuselage from United Airlines Flight 175 crashed through the roof and two floors. Imam Rauf couldn’t care less. He has a mission, and that mission is to build a symbol of Islam’s victory over the infidels.

We cannot let him do it. This has to be our line in the sand, people. Do not lower yourself to violence, but fight this with every fiber of your being. Write letters, make phone calls, get informed. If this mosque goes up, so close to Ground Zero, it’s game over: they win.

Never forget.

(Many thanks to Code Monkey for photos of the flags of the aforementioned victims.)

    We should not have allowed the first mosque to be built until there was a church built in Riyahd.

    Robert B – Never happen. That being said, there are plenty of mosques in New York City, and at least one not too far from Ground Zero. Why do they need another one closer to the site?

    Someone said that a mosque at ground zero is the equivalent of a Hitler memorial in Auschwitz. The fact that they’re scheduling the groundbreaking ceremony for September 11th is the ultimate slap in the face. While we’re fortunate to have religious freedom in this country, in this case it seems to be working against us. I cannot believe the notion of building a mosque that close to where thousands of innocent American were murdered is even being entertained. Have we turned into a nation of wimps?

  6. Wyatt Earp Says:
    September 11th, 2010 at 8:45 am

    Mrs. Crankipants – Yes, and it starts at the top. Would Reagan let this happen? Truman?? FDR??? Frak. No. And while they have every right to build this abomination, we have a moral right to object to it.

    It wasn’t enough that 2,997 Americans were murdered in the name of Allah? Now we have to let them build their symbol of conquest??

    Hey Wyatt;

    This war goes beyond bullets and bombs. It is fully a war of ideas. The fuck-wad imam knows full well that bombs will not work, but the slow imposition of sharia abroad and here will accomplish the task of Islam subjugating the world. And the libs and leftists are in bed because they share the same hatred of America and western values that they do.

    Looking down at the WTC site from my apartment – exactly 9 years to the second.

    If I ever were to meet Imam Rauf, he might not respect my rights, but he would respect and fear my lefts. My right is my weaker arm.

  11. Wyatt Earp Says:
    September 11th, 2010 at 9:43 am

    J.J. – You’re absolutely correct. They’ll overtake us by using our laws and our freedom against us. Look at what’s going on in America now. We’re fighting every war (literal and figurative) except the one that matters – the war on terror.

    Captain – And never forgive.

    USAdmiral – They learned for a while, but after a few years, they’ve forgotten. Sadly, a lot of people from each side of the aisle have forgotten.

    Church destroyed in 9/11 attacks – no

    Good to know where we stand.

    When is the next civil war or WW3 supposed to start?

    Excellent column today Wyatt. I respect Imam Rauf’s rights to religious freedom. I do not respect him, his religion or his choice of location for his house of worship, nor the the true SATAN which his religious worships.

  14. Wyatt Earp Says:
    September 11th, 2010 at 10:57 am

    Kim – Well, Christians don’t fight back, so the government can do whatever they want to them. Imam Rauf already warned of attacks if this mosque isn’t built, so they’re catered to.

    Real – I agree 100%.

  15. Dannytheman Says:
    September 11th, 2010 at 11:12 am

    This “turning the other cheek” stuff sure gets old.

    Our laws, via the constitution, allow this mosque to be built, other countries laws do not.

    What this is doing is continuing to prejudice my feelings toward ‘all’ Muslims. If the legally immigrated Muslims don’t step up to stop this obvious slap in the face, I would be forced to consider them all my enemy of the Republic.

    God Bless the USA!!!

    I also noticed sadly that I am the only one in my neighborhood flying flags of the United States. I am somber and disappointed in my neighbors.

    JJ, it also includes a breeding war of attrition. Their “religion” allows them up to four wives, which all seems to be pregant repeticiously. And they take advantage (i.e., abuse) our welfare system to pay for them. All the offspring are raise as good little jihadis, and taught to hate our country and constitution.

    The alarm clock went off over nine years ago (WTC bombing ’93), and the nation hit the snooze button. Nine years ago today, the alarm went off again. America awoke, but after a few WEEKS, the lefties wanted to forgive and forget. Sadly, most of the voters agreed in November ’08.

    Danny – Mine is out, and most of my neighbors are pretty good with the flag. We should be covered today.

    Hey Dannytheman – me too. But I’ve moved from Manhattan (where I was living and working on 9/11) to North Carolina and most folks down here don’t feel such a “special attachement” as we do.
    And it’s a shame, really – it was an attack on our America.

    So glad to have you behind the shield…and for your perceptive commentary on the annivesary of 9/11.

    Well said.

    Stay safe.

  23. Ferrell Gummitt Says:

    Every night before we put the kids to bed, we have a family prayer. After the prayer we have what we call a “Popcorn” prayer where each of us thank God for things that happened today and pray to help people in need.

    I always go first, and last night I prayed for the surviving family members of 9/11. My six year old son asked what 9/11 was. And I tried to explain to him but, I couldn’t because I kept inserting the words “Bastards”, “Pond Scum” and “Evil” into the conversation. My wife asked me to stop explaining 9/11, Islamofascists and planes into buildings. I wound up telling my son, that I will explain it to him in a few years.

    I have so many memories of that day, I was at work and this guy who worked in our print room “John” kept playing the video of the planes going into the WTC and saying things like “cool” and “I think I see Satan’s face in the smoke”. Rerunning the video endlessly I had to leave after I screamed the words “Mother F**** Asshole” to him.

    I’m rambling and I apologize. Wyatt this is a really good post. Thanks. When I tell my son in a few years about 9/11, I will empahasize two words “Never Forget”.

    Excellent post, Wyatt.

    To repeat what I said on another blog…..

    While I find it heartwarming that the muslims want to reach out and share and educate us, I simply think it is the wrong time and place in history to build a mosque.

    I propose a compromise….

    They should invite us all to Mecca for a co-ed softball game and pig-roast.

    Losing team buys the beer.

  25. Fenway_Nation Says:

    If it really was about outreach, Rauf probably would’ve stopped at some point and said ‘I could see why you’d think this is a bad idea. Maybe I should reconsider’. Instead, he’s plowing on through and running off the the rest of the Muslim world in search of more backers for this 13 story touchdown dance (on our dime, no less) while his wife is seething and whining about ‘Islamophobia’……even though the most recently available FBI statistics show Jews and Christians were victims of more religously motivated attacks than Muslims

  26. Arkroyal Says:
    September 11th, 2010 at 6:19 pm

    The victims were not killed. They were MURDERED. We all need to be precise in the use of the word in this context.

  27. Kim Says:
    September 11th, 2010 at 7:16 pm

    Looking at my son, my biggest memory of this day is finding out I was pregnant with him. Nothing like holding a positive test in one hand and the TV remote in the other watching the world come to an end.

    When people ask “Where were you” or “What were you doing” and I tell them “taking a pregnancy test” they look at me as if I’m nuts then ask if it was positive or negative. I look at Charlie and smile.

    As for explaining it to children, I try with mine. Homeschooling means we are the ones who teach them everything. I covered this briefly with the children a year ago. I had Charlie watch a couple of clips on youtube that I had viewed first. Then we talked about it. I asked him how he felt and he said “Sad, but fine.” When I asked him what he meant, he said he was sad for those people, but he was fine.

    “Did you or do you feel scared?”
    “Why not? I was. I still am sometimes.”
    “Because we have God.”

    And I am supposed to be the one teaching him.

    RAPH – Thanks.

    Real – It was a disgusting and unprovoked attack, despite what Imam Rauf and Jeremiah Wright think.

    Bob G – Thank you, sir.

    Picky – I noticed that the president refused to call out radical Islam today. Figures.

    Ferrell – I was going to tell my 9-year old, but I think I’ll wait another year or two. He’s in Catholic school, so he won’t indoctrinated in liberal talking points.

    JT – I’m in! I am an above-average softball pitcher.

    Fenway – Dennis Prager said this a few times. If this was really about understanding and building bridges, he would have moved it the second the outrage began.

    Arkroyal – You are correct, and I apologize. Corrected in the post above.

    Kim – He’s a very smart boy.

    Bob – I don’t mind sentence-enhancers on 9-11. I almost used a few here today.

    Someone who wants to promote peace and unity WOULD NOT build a mosque/prayer building/whateverthehellyouwanttocallit near ground zero. Anyone with half a brain cell would understand that it would do the EXACT opposite. Offering money to the families who lost a family member, helping rebuild the Greek Orthodox church that was destroyed etc. THESE are ways to promote peace and unity. Dumb bastards.

  31. Wyatt Earp Says:

    I will never forgive nor forget.

    I would have ordered a nuclear strike on Mecca and Medina then called Israel and told them to tear down that golden dome mosque and start on the third temple. In fact in mecca (or me-ca-ca) I would have dropped it on that big black rubics cube, you know the one they swirl around throw stones at and chant death to the great satan.

    It is sad that the only one with enough courage to burn the koran yesterday (its now the 12th) was Fred Phelps of the westboro baptist church. However he loves burning the american flag also.

    If you know of Ric Rescola’s story then you know of true heroism in action, also his previous service, first to Queen Elisazabeth, then to the US Army and then to his people in the Towers. The meaning of bravery to me is that when other people are running out of danger you are running in. God Bless all the members of The Fire and Police Departments of the city of New York and all of those around the country in the groups relieving them later on.

    Jon – Phelps is a piece of garbage, not unlike the scumbags who hijacked the airliners.

    tjbbpgobIII – Lord knows I’m no hero, but on my fourth day on the street, we had a homicide. We were a block away when we heard the gunshots, and ran toward them. I thought to myself, “This is insane,” but that’s the job. You get used to doing your job first, and worrying about your safety later.
