20 Years

By Mike Huckabee

Today marks the 20th anniversary of the September 11, 2001, attacks, the deadliest attacks ever on US soil. Those of us who were around back then will never forget waking up, turning on our televisions and staring in disbelief at a world that seemed to be turning upside down. When the first airliner hit the World Trade Center, we wondered if it was a horrific air accident. But when the second hit, there was no denying that this was a terrorist attack on an unimaginable scale, the worst attack on America since Pearl Harbor, and an act of war that would change the course of history.

Before that day was over, the small group of radical Islamists would kill nearly 3,000 people in New York, Pennsylvania and Washington, DC. (And that’s what they were: radical Islamists. Today, a push is underway to teach our children that they were just non-specific “extremists” of no particular beliefs. But telling the truth, that they were adherents of a twisted, radical offshoot of Islam, is not an attack on peaceful mainstream Muslims, and that should not be used as an excuse to whitewash either history or the continuing threat from their sympathizers.)

The attack was aimed at America, but because it focused on the World Trade Center, the victims were from many nations. But as much as that day displayed the hate and brutality of the terrorists, it also showcased the heroism and selflessness of countless Americans, from the NYPD cops and firefighters who rushed toward danger and gave their lives to save others, to Americans across the nation who stood in long lines to donate blood. Petty differences like race, politics and regional rivalries were swept aside as we all came together like family, because when our nation is under attack, we are all family.

Sadly, today, many young people with no personal memory of that day know only the distorted, “blame America” version they hear from leftist teachers and media figures with their own agendas. We also have a crop of leaders who have forgotten the lessons of 9/11 so completely that they’ve allowed the very people who harbored terrorists to resume power, better equipped than ever, thanks to leaving our military equipment behind in Afghanistan. And we have political figures who are trying to make us believe that the people who cheered 9/11 are not a threat to America, while the real threat comes from working class Republicans who fly Old Glory in their yards. And of course, the climate.

I have so many stories relating to those narratives that I could send out a book of them today. But I’m not going to. We’ll talk about that more on Monday. I also have a number of other stories that don’t relate to 9/11, but they can wait until Monday as well.

For today, I’d just like to show respect by avoiding all the political news and keeping our focus on the victims and heroes of 9/11. Let’s honor them the way we did 20 years ago: by setting aside our differences and coming together as Americans to offer prayers and remembrances.

Each of us must also redouble our efforts to ensure that our children and grandchildren are taught the truth about 9/11. It was one of America’s worst days, yet in the Twin Towers and the Pentagon and on United Flight 93, we also saw Americans at their very best, coming together and heroically laying down their lives for others -- whether they were police and firefighters climbing up into the doomed Towers to search for survivors or simply American citizens standing up against the hijackers and saying, “Let’s roll!,” knowing it meant their own plane would crash but they would save countless lives.

One of the best ways to teach your children the truth about 9/11 is with a visit to the 9/11 Memorial and Museum in New York, which is now reopened. But if you can’t make the trip, visit their website.

It has a treasure trove of information, including details on the 20th anniversary commemorations.

As we reflect on and remember 9/11, let’s not dwell on the murderous monsters who don’t deserve to have their names remembered. Let’s focus on honoring the victims and the many true heroes, both on that awful day and in the days and years afterward. Let us resolve to end the miseducation of our children and start teaching them the truth about 9/11 and about America’s real history and our people’s true heroic character. And let’s never let our guard down again.

9/11 Statements

By Mike Huckabee

Former President Trump released a moving video on 9/11 titled “You Will Never Be Forgotten.” You can learn more and see it here:

Former President Obama also issued an excellent statement concentrating on America’s heroic first responders, military members and volunteers.

President Biden also released a 9/11 statement, but I think it’s best to wait until Monday to talk about that.

    A friend of mine who is a firefighter told me that over 20000 people safely escaped from the twin towers before they collapsed.

    Due to fire fighter, police and other emergency personnel that risked their lives to rescue this many people.

    Now all you have to do is get JOHN 3:16 in the national POLITICAL dialog. Muslim use the word or in the KORAN COMPASSION is used. President Donald Trump has been called a GENIUS but his egoat times ignored that the DEVIL is in the details

    As I reflect on 9/11 a strange thought about biden and movie Shawshank Redemption comes to mind biden is trying to kill the American dream driving Americans into a depressed state of mind like the warden of the prison had done to the imates biden has all of his traits of the warden a hideous murderer corrupt no compassion person biden wants to put America in a Shawshank type prison state of mind watch the movie and see if the movie may similar to joe biden's America agenda .

    I thoroughly enjoyed your show last night. I believe Rick Grenell and Sebastian Gorka speak such sense and I listen to them as much as possible (and Mayor Rudy, of course). As I'm recovering from knee replacement, I haven' t been to the tapings and am so looking forward to returning. I hope you and Janet have a blessed grandparents day......and keep the beard; it looks GREAT! May God bless America!!

    Why is no one addressing the fundamental issue with Islamic terrorism? Should not the religious community of Christians, Jews, Catholics, Buddhists, et. al. be joining forces to denounce Islamic leaders that preach hate and terror on the citizens of the world. We need a long duration, united campaign throughout the world. Common citizens demand it.

    Now that the United States is a sponsor of Islamic Terrorism Obama's release of terrorists from prison are now the leadership of the Taliban biden gives the weapons the taliban need to terrorize the world and the United States. Where is the outrage while bush obama biden and clinton all marvel at the what happened 20 years ago they are all had and have their finger prints on this disaster. I love most of America its has so many positive that out weigh the negatives this administration is the worse of all time and needs to be cancelled now. The sights and sounds of biden and its collection of Anti American office holders are an outrage to say the least the leaders of the military lack masculinity the MSM is a cult of Anti America I am in favor of sending all of it too Afgan. stripped of all American citizenship and assets and then declare war on it with real military leadership for real let biden and obama sit on the board with the Obama terrioists and treat them as equal terrorists they are.

    Dear Mike,
    Usually I think you have a good grasp on what's going on. Sometimes I think you're too accepting of the MSM narrative, as with 9/11. This is from Thrive's Foster Gamble, with guest David Icke, tying together what really happened 9/11 with what's going on now. The first 6 minutes is intro music. Please watch, or have staff watch and report on it. Thanks! Blessings!

    Obama's statement is just him seeking to make people believe he is someone he isn't. He is the puppet master pulling Biden's strings. This is his third term working it basically in the method he told on the Stephen Colbert show. I doubt very much that Obama's statement was in any way sincere.

    I agree Let’s focus on honoring the victims and the many true heroes, both on that awful day and in the days and years afterward. Let us resolve to end the miseducation of our children and start teaching them the truth about 9/11 and about America’s real history and our people’s true heroic character. And let’s never let our guard down again!
    Pray for our Nation and for the American citizens left behind in Afghanistan by the Biden administration!!
