Pre- 911 Thoughts
I’ll write a longer post later about my feelings regarding the upcoming anniversary of 911. In the interim Seawitch turned me onto a Carlos Mencia bit that is not entirely politically correct, but made me smile.
Part of the reason that it made me smile is that he reminded me about some of the immediate aftermath of 911. Specifically, it reminded me about how for a while the people in the US set aside their differences and looked out for each other.
It reminded me about how during a terrible tragedy the name calling ended and we pulled together and looked inward. We spent a little time doing what we could to take care of each other because that is what we need to do.
Like I said, there is a longer post coming so I am not going to spend too much more time writing. But I want to make one thing clear. I despise apologists. I despise those people who think that it is ok to make excuses for the terrorists.
I don’t suffer fools who think that they can excuse murderers because they think that they acted in a manner that was consistent with protesting US policy. That is just nonsense. It is as immoral as blaming a woman for being raped because she wore a tight skirt.
It doesn’t fly with me. Anyway, here is the video.
