September 11, 2001…3,000 Americans were murdered by Muslim terrorists.  This is how a demagogic left-wing union thug and his pal the President choose to commemorate the occasion ten years later (Emphases mine):

[…] Just 10 years after 9/11, despite our vows, the public servants, construction workers and others who lost their lives or still suffer with the cancerous remnants of the Twin Towers haven’t just been forgotten. They’ve been vilified. The extremist small government posse has turned them into public enemy No. 1, as though teachers and firefighters, EMTs and nurses and union construction workers ruined America’s economy…

...Wealthy CEOs, anti-government extremist front groups and frothing talk show hosts—from the Rush Limbaughs and Glenn Becks to the Koch brothers, Karl Rove’s American Crossroads group, Americans for Prosperity, the Club for Growth, FreedomWorks and the American Legislative Exchange Council—also pushed open the door to hate…

…We’ve seen the costs of hatred in ill-thought wars, in shameful attacks on immigrants and our LGBT neighbors. We saw it in the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. We saw it in the racism that has found overt and covert expression since Barack Obama began his run for office—from outright declarations of people who said out loud they would never vote for a black man to the ridiculously persistent obsession with our president’s birth certificate. Regardless of his policies or priorities, President Obama is shadowed by the drumbeat of suspicion based on his “other”-ness. And those suspicions are fed and watered constantly by forces that were threatened by his message of “hope and change.”

—Richard Trumka, President, AFL-CIO

 Conveniently forgotten in Trumka’s deceitful diatribe regarding the so-called “costs of hatred” are, of course, his own.  From Discover The Networks:

In the spring of 1993, Trumka, in an effort to ensure that no one would be able to find employment as a miner without paying dues or agency fees to the UMW, ordered more than 17,000 mine workers to walk off their jobs. Moreover, he explicitly instructed striking miners to “kick the sh– out of every last one” of their fellow employees and mine operators who resisted union demands. In response, UMW enforcers vandalized homes, fired gunshots at a mine office, and cut off the power supply to another mine, temporarily trapping 93 miners underground.

…In 1994, Trumka was honored at the annual Eugene Debs Award Banquet in Terre Haute, Indiana; The award was named after the man who founded the Socialist Party of America and ran for U.S. President five times on the Socialist Party ticket.

As for Trumka’s good buddy Barack Obama:

[…]  9/11 isn’t about the murder of 3,000 innocent Americans by Islamic fanatics. It’s about, in Obama’s words, “solving today’s most pressing challenges: clean energy, energy efficiency, health care, education, economic opportunity, veterans and military families.”

Obama’s desecration of 9/11 is part of an effort to dumb down the nation and turn the solemn annual commemoration of the Sept. 11, 2001 atrocities into a meaningless feel-good event that glosses over both the horrors of that day and the evil intentions of the Islamofascist barbarians who made them happen.

At the behest of his radical constituencies, the administration’s plans were outlined in an Aug. 11, 2009 White House-sponsored teleconference call run by Obama ally Rev. Lennox Yearwood, president of the Hip Hop Caucus….on the call Yearwood and others said they wanted 9/11 to be used for something “positive,” “forward-leaning,” and “productive.” Their plan was to turn what they called a “day of fear” that they say helps Republicans into a day of activism that would help the Left. [Obama’s Defilement of 9/11]

A “Day of Fear”?  I hardly think so.  I believe most Americans will spend September 11th honoring the heroes of that dark day, mourning the dead, and contemplating with cold fury their murderers and the ideology that spawned them.  I know I will.

    They don’t even share the grief. How did this guy get more than two votes in 2008? I am still trying to figure it.

  2. roxannadanna says:

    Evil, hateful people. They will never know true grief or love of country. I can’t help myself from hating them. I know it’s a sin to hate but I can’t help myself.

  3. LD Jackson says:

    Good post, Bob. I would humbly ask the President one question. If this day is not about the murder of over 3,000 people by fanatics in the name of Islam, than what is it about? Is he so willfully ignorant that he doesn’t want to admit what really happened?

  5. The fanatics of Islam are not America’s only enemies, are they? How can over 40% of the electorate still support those who would destroy America from within?

    It is quite a contrast seeing and hearing from Bush and his administration members these days.

    • Bob Mack says:

      BUNKER, check Krugman’s column today (The Years of Shame). A sample of his ‘thought’:

      “The memory of 9/11 has been irrevocably poisoned; it has become an occasion for shame. And in its heart, the nation knows it.”

      And, of course, he won’t allow comments on his tripe. Damn, I detest these left-wingers.

  9. The fifth column needs to be defeated as much as the terrorists themselves. WE know this. I (perhaps foolishly) believe very few who voted for this monstrosity knew what they were voting for. At least I hope so.
    Good post

  10. bydesign001 says:

    Trumka should be in jail. Obama is a disgrace. As I watched the memorial in NYC this morning, I hit the mute button when he spoke.

    There is nothing that this narcissist can say that I want to hear.

  11. bydesign001 says:

    Trumka has his rear on his shoulders because unions want more money from the government for 911. Now I have no problem compensating and making things right but how much is enough? Unions and their membership would get pissed having this discussion but I believe that we need to go there.

    I know that today is not the day to have this discussion but you can bet that more money will come up again in due time.

    How many in our military have given of themselves and even their lives? Our military does not get compensated as the unions have. Heck, they don’t even earn as much as the FDNY and NYPD.

    As I said today is not the day for this discussion but I plan to revisit it some time in the future and I guess that I will make sure all comments are off.

    • Bob Mack says:

      Cry and Howl has a post up regarding Obama’s desire to unionize the military, D. Ah, yes, I can see it now: The armed forces strike for better working conditions and fewer hours…

      • AFVET says:

        First of all,…Great Post.
        Unionize the military ?
        This fool is the result of ignorance and socialistic policies run wild for years.
        Nothing will stop this boob until we vote him out of office and keep him there.
        I still maintain that the ignorant radical fools on the left and the american idol drones that slobber over them are the greatest concern we have in this Country.

      • Freedom, by the way says:

        I just read that post and the Wall Street Insider he links to–scarey stuff. Gotta keep fighting the insanity. Nothing unconstitutional should be easy for them to accomplish.

  12. TexasFred says:

    I am certain that on that September day there were angels among us, and I would imagine that they too wept…

    I’m a big strong guy, but I am not the least bit bothered to tell you, I wept, from anger, from compassion, from a feeling of total helplessness, and yes, even fear, not fear for myself, but fear for my family and their immediate…

    I was 1,500 miles from home that day and all I could think of was getting home to my wife and making sure my children were safe, and I couldn’t do that…

    None of us knew what the future held, we still don’t, but I hope with all my heart that these same angels are with us now…

    I can’t speak for all Americans, but I know that I am still hurting, every day that goes by I remember 9-11, and I don’t know if a *healing* will ever take place in me, but I pray for the lives of those affected in an even more direct fashion, I pray for our firefighters, police officer and our troops… I pray that ALL of America will wake up to the dangers around us and unite in an effort to defeat the evils that threaten our lives and freedoms.

    No matter where that evil comes from!

    I will NEVER forgive and I will NEVER forget!

    Thank you Bob for your link back my friend. Great that you are calling out the Left and Trumpka as the vile and depraved people they really are.

  15. thanks for the shout out for Sgt Dub, he is a dedicated American Soldier.

  16. Freedom, by the way says:

    Thank you for the link Bob. You have a thinking man’s post and I thank you for that, as well.

  17. The Obama regime turned the 9/11 memorial into a “National Day of Serve-Us.” As always with leftists, it’s always about them, always about the government, always about candy-coating “service” (more like tax-slavery to the state).

  18. Bunni says:

    I too, was appalled and sickened by the digusting actions of obummer today, desecrating this Holy day. There’s a pic on Gateway Pundit of him laughing hysterically and yucking it up at the Memorial, I really am disgusted. Thankfully GW Bush was on hand to redeem the ceremony.

    This is a super post, Bob, so many great great tributes to our Hero’s and Saints of the Day. Thanks for Including me.

  19. Thanks for the link and the well put piece.


  20. Matt Ross says:

    You have shown us the domestic enemies. Trumpka should be well warned that the activities of his goons will be exposed. The days of union thugs operating in the open without national exposure is over. Obama, too, has been exposed by his own abject failure in office.

    We aren’t going to forget any of the terrorists, whether they be religious zealots, or domestic communists.

  21. roblorinov says:

    Excellent post Bob! Day of Fear? Sorry the day’s over where I live and guess what? NO FEAR! Barack HUSSEIN Obama and his minions can go to HELL !!

  22. Bob Mack says:

    From Pat Dollard – Obama Continues Campaign To Replace “9-11 Remembrance Day” With Service Day:

    You probably didn’t know this, but Obama’s federal government has created the national Corporation For National And Community Service, an entity whose main, long-term goal is to wipe out 9-11 as a day of remembrance of the terror attacks and replace it with a holiday known as Service Day, or National Day of Service, a classic community organizing effort, and one which is already aimed at becoming a day of service to the federal government. This campaign is a coordinated effort between the Left and Muslim America, both wanting nothing more than the US to forget the events of 9-11.
