Maybe you read this yesterday, but the New York Times "economist" Paul Krugman, former Enron financial advisor, was nice enough to get up early on the tenth anniversary of the worst attack on American soil to type this little screed: The Years of Shame. Click at your peril, as it contains the very worst of Krugman's leftie pomposity.
Here's a taste...
Te atrocity should have been a unifying event, but instead it became a wedge issue. Fake heroes like Bernie Kerik, Rudy Giuliani, and, yes, George W. Bush raced to cash in on the horror. And then the attack was used to justify an unrelated war the neocons wanted to fight, for all the wrong reasons.Needless to say, Krugman's vile little piece of red journalism wasn't well received by about, oh, 98% of the public who were busy yesterday recalling the senseless murder of nearly 3000 innocent Americans and the countless acts of bravery by first responders and ordinary people who found themselves in the most extraordinary circumstance we've ever seen.
Um, Pauline, just what would you have had us do in response? Issue a sternly worded letter of condemnation, ala some weak, European, socialist country?
My boy, you're forgetting where you live.
Here's another little turd of "thought" from the link...
A lot of other people behaved badly.Like the terrorists? How about them, Pauline? Did they not go out of their way to draw up their elaborate plans to kill as many Americans as possible, cripple both our economy and government, only to have their well-thought-out (to them) plans foiled by the passengers on Flight 93?
Oh, no, Pauline couldn't blame the actual perpetrators of the crimes that day. Tell me, you simpering little self-important idiot, how GW Bush, Mayor Guliani and Police Chief Kerik "cash in" on the tragedy? By penning a best-selling book six months later while the ruins of the World Trade buildings were still smoldering?
The little lefty ended with this...
The memory of 9/11 has been irrevocably poisoned; it has become an occasion for shame. And in its heart, the nation knows it.Maybe to you the memory of 9/11 has been poisioned. The rest of the country, the patriotic 98%, the ones you look down your little nose at, certainly doesn't think that. No, Pauline, we are able to see the truth of that day.
I’m not going to allow comments on this post, for obvious reasons.
Your cowardice is evidence of your intellectual and moral vapidity, which is foisted upon the nation weekly along with your failed economic theories. You are a despicable excuse for a man and undeserving of the title of American. You should be fired and shunned by the rest of the country. Your outdated, radically leftist opinions are the stuff of insanity.
I'd really like to hear you say the words you bravely typed to me in person, you little socialist wimp.
This is what you'd get, and would rightly deserve.
Have a nice day.
