On September 11, 2001 the United States of America was attacked by terrorists. This plan to kill many more than the 3,000 that it did was an act of war perpetrated by a non State terror entity called al-Qaeda whom publicly declared war against us. Many of us remember that day will clarity. But since it occurred over twelve years ago it is already an unknown to some of our children.
The attacks purpose was aimed at our way of life and to bring us to our knee's and expose us as the "paper tiger" that the previous 8 years of the Clinton Administration portraits. Instead of cowering and instead of talking as if the tragedy was a "law enforcement" issue, George W. Bush stood on the rubble with a mega phone and declared that America will hunt you down. The one great thing that Bush's leadership in this nations time of crisis did accomplish was to galvanize Americans. We were not democrats, republicans, black, white or illegal immigrants....We were Americans.
For the first time since WWII Americans enlisted to fight against those who attacked us. People like Pat Tillman laid down their careers, in this case an NFL player, and then laid down his life to bring to justice those that Bush declared we would smoke out of their caves.

Americans were outraged. The red, white and blue was hoisted over the corner store to the house on the corner. The red, white and blue was on bumper stickers, car antenna's and everywhere you looked. Silently, the Democrats were brooding because to counter this surge publicly was political as well as mortal suicide. So they played nice, for just a little while and even got on the bandstand. Just twelve years later the Democrats have turned this galvanization in alienation. The American flag is still flying, except where it is, it is attacked and vilified by those on the left and aligned with them.
When I said the Democrats played nice for awhile, it wasn't long for their true anti-American feelings came out. Not only were they behaving contrary to the new found galvanization of the majority of American sentiment for justice, they did so with malice of political gamesmanship. In early 2003, less than 2 years removed from the 9/11 attacks, democrat operatives within the DNC and supported by those in Congress sent out a "secret memo" from the head of the DNC with their plan. Basic excerpts were:
"In coming weeks, Democratic elected officials will question the President’s intentions on the pending war with Iraq. Writers and broadcasters friendly to the Democratic cause have already been provided talking points suggesting the war is about oil, not terrorism. “The talking points were developed before the end of last year and sent out to operatives and friendly media,” one Democratic consultant confided. “No Democratic member of Congress will question the President’s patriotism openly but we will use the media and other surrogates to raise doubts.”
--Claiming the Bush administration has “manufactured” evidence against Saddam Hussein and used that evidence to encourage Britain and other allies to join the American fight against Iraq; --Suggesting a wartime economy is the only way the administration can revive the country’s lagging economic situation. “It is clear that the current approval ratings of the administration are tied directly to strong American feelings toward traditional values,” the talking points say. “To counter this, doubt must be raised as to America’s true position within the world community and the true intent of the Bush administration in waging war.”
On 9/11 of last year the Democrats had the golden opportunity to Galvanize the American public again as the al Qaeda terror attacks on Benghazi was opening our national wounds by attacking on this day. Yet, this administration immediately sent out surrogates to claim the attacks were not terror but were the result of a anti-Muslim video made by an American. Now we also find that this Administration is siding with al-Qaeda fighters against Assad in Syria. This was on the heels of backing another al-Qaeda friendly government in Egypt.
This President and those who follow his lead need to be impeached and removed from office as their behavior, words and actions are aligned with those who want us dead. They are NOT protecting the citizens of this country and it is obvious they hate this country.
There was a couple of recent studies that show that patriotism and the American flag is synonymous with Conservatives only.
There was a recent article in April 2013 by Goal Auzeen Saedi, Phd at Psychology today titled "Do Racism, Conservatism, and low IQ, go hand in hand?". The opening line says it all and is indicative of intellectuals of the left --
"This morning as I logged onto Facebook, I came upon this image. Having followed the Boston marathon and MIT shooting coverage initially, I lost some interest when it came down to the “hunt.” As much as justice matters to me, so does tact and class, and the sensationalism of manhunts always leaves me uncomfortable. I also knew it would be a matter of time before the political rhetoric would change from the victims and wounded to the demographic factors of the suspects—namely race and religion. And alas, it has."
This author, though raised in Oregon, is obviously of this mindset of intellectual suicide politics. Just as in Ft. Hood, when an attack happens to be terror, demean those who say it is and call it something else, like say, racism or stereotyping. Don't mind that these terrorists in our midst are telling us loudly, clearly and unambiguously that they are.
