Sunday was the 21st anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on America. There were commemorations across America and a number of news stories. This link will take you to a round-up of all the stories from Fox News.
9/11 should be a time for all Americans to come together, mourn the dead, remember the heroes and reflect on what we all have in common and what makes America the greatest nation on Earth, the one that is most hated by the enemies of freedom but is strong, resolute and resilient enough to withstand any blow, fight back and win.
The commemorations of 9/11 were a much-needed reminder of that spirit, in a time when so many people are working to tear America apart. Just watching the Jets-Ravens football game seemed like a throwback to a better time, with its tribute to the New York Police and everyone showing respect for the American flag and joining together to sing the National Anthem instead of turning their backs or taking a knee.
Unfortunately, as the memory of that shocking day has receded with time, some conscienceless political opportunists have started demeaning the horrors of 9/11 by trying to compare their political opponents to the terrorists who killed nearly 3,000 innocent people. We saw such smears over the weekend by trolls ranging from news media figures to Kamala Harris to Sen. Mark Warner to Hillary Clinton. Warner even suggested that “election deniers” were as dangerous as the 9/11 terrorists, managing to demean both the victims of 9/11 and the victims of the Holocaust in one sentence.
All of these despicable people should be ashamed of themselves. But they have no shame.
