The Obama White House is behind a cynical, coldly calculated political effort to erase the meaning of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks from the American psyche and convert Sept. 11 into a day of leftist celebration and statist idolatry. This effort to reshape the American psyche has nothing to do with healing the nation and everything to do with easing the nation along in the ongoing radical transformation of America that President Obama promised during last year's election campaign. The president signed into law a measure in April that designated Sept. 11 as a National Day of Service, but it's not likely many lawmakers thought this meant that day was going to be turned into a celebration of ethanol, carbon emission controls, and radical community organizing.

From our point of view, it's a desicration. From his, something different. Just to play devils advocate for a moment, his way of thinking is different from ours. Whether it's a broader picture or (?) his vision for our country is going down a path that is radically different from what we are used to.

OK, that's done. I tried to argue his point but couldn't do it. It goes to this administration's, "lets not waste a good crisis" mentality.

I didn't vote for him. Now you see why.

Good find.

They can do anything they want, but I will never celebrate that day for any reason. I pray for the victims and their families every year, and tell them I will never forget. They can put any spin on it they want, to me it will always be one of the darkest days in American history, as well as the world. Those people deserve our respect, and to weep for them is not a bad thing, in fact it's the least we can do, for most of us shall never see a death so horrible.

I will never forget !!!!!!!!!
God Bless America.

oh my god, i cannot believe those evil scumbag socialist puppets want to use 9/11 for something positive, 9/11 should only ever be used as an excuse for the erasure of civil liberties and as justification for illegal preemptive wars against brown people.

to try to emphasize the selfless heroism in the service of their fellow man that so many people displayed that day is the lowest kind of evil manipulative nazi propaganda i have ever witnessed.

these people must be stopped.

It doesn't surprise me. I think there's a segment of the far left that would like to erase the events of that day from the memories of the American public forever.

For the same reason that we don't throw a big party on December 7th every year, we shouldn't even contemplate this. 9/11 should be devoted to the victims and their families and to turn it into something else is a disrespect, IMO.

Well said. It should be a simple day of remembrance and respect. We should all watch the news footage of that day in order to remember just how we felt on that day.

Matt Vandum's language hardly reads like a piece of journalist work.
The entire article suffers from lack of any real facts as it is based upon
hyperpartisan rhetoric and emotional drivel. Therefore it is very hard to discuss
any aspect of this stories basis when its entire construction is that of opinion.

By default some of you are saying they need the establishment of government to CREATE a durable meaning of this historic event for you and yours. This does not translate well considering all the talk of limiting the role and scope of government.
Do we need government to dictate to use that which is self evident?
Do we need government to tell us how to feel about the horrid day?

Well of coarse his way of thinking is different then ours. When he grew up much of his childhood was outside of the states, he lost that core american value. Then top it off with mentors like the Reverend Wright, Bill Ayers, Frank Marshall, and we can damn bet his views are anything but American at heart.

Once again the American people fail themselves. We Better wake up real fast and get active. We're about to lose everything if it's not already too late.

OMG
The EISENHOWER White House is behind a cynical, coldly calculated political effort to erase the meaning of the nov. 11, 1919 WWI armistace from the American psyche and convert NOV. 11 into a day of leftist celebration and statist idolatry--VETERAN'S DAY. This effort to reshape the American psyche has nothing to do with healing the nation and everything to do with easing the nation along in the ongoing radical transformation of America that President EISENHOWER promised during last year's election campaign. The president signed into law a measure in April that designated NOV. 11 as a National Day of REMEMBERANCE, but it's not likely many lawmakers thought this meant that day was going to be turned into a MINDFUL REMEMBERANCE OF THE VETERANS WHO GAVE OF THEMSELVES SO VALIANTLY DURING THE WAR

give it up.

remembering and recognizing those people who acted in service to the people on 9-11 (firefighters, policemen, paramedics, aid workers) is a good thing.

You are such an unwavering liberal its starting to get sad. This isn't about the government telling us how to feel. This is about the government trying to turn a day of mourning into a day of celebration.

This is about what is right and wrong. What I find funny is that you would not be this coy about it if Bush was the one doing this.

Your posts have become painfully predictable. I am not much for pain so goodbye.

And your an unwavering conservative.

so someone has an opposing viewpoint and you act like that is a bad thing?

That is kinda sad it bothers you so much.

Or is it always because MM seems to rain on the anti obama flame parade?

Well, on this point I have to agree with mm:

Do we need the gov't to tell us how to feel on this day?

No we do not. It is personal to each of us in our own way.

But I do also agree with the OP that it has nothing to do with service or the greening of America. Keep politics out of it, Barry. Let it remain a national day of personal remembrance.

And let it be remembered with a moment of silence, and a gathering of concerned Americans.

I don't have any political affiliations. I have been called both a right winger and a liberal. So I guess you are free to pick your poison for whatever works best.

I'm pretty sure it has already been declared 'Patriots Day'.
For Obama to declare it 'national service day (or something)
wouldn't he have to get rid of Patriots Day first?

I don't agree with mm.

They should respect that day enough to not make it a celebratory holiday. As I said in my last post, this isn't about them trying to tell us how to feel on that day.

You do remember that its the victors that writes history.

In time.. future generations won't really remember what the celebration was all about or how it came to be due to a shadow of how it came to be.

We are living in the mist of how history is written.

After George W. Bush, Obama would have to try real hard to desecrate what little positive meaning 9-11 had left.

I totally agree with you, jd. There is nothing 'holiday' about 9/11, much less anything to celebrate.

To me, it is and always will be a day of remembrance.
