The Arizona 9/11 memorial disgrace

***scroll for updates…AZ Gov. Napolitano thinks the memorial is “great,” “honorable,” and “responsible…”





You have got to see the entire stomach-turning photo series of the Arizona 9/11 memorial disgrace over at Hot Air. Many thanks to Hot Air commenter AZ Patriot for taking the pics.

The blogswarm has been building over the moonbattered memorial, which was supposedly built so that future generations will not forget the tragic losses of life and the inspiration, heroism and lessons learned that day,” but which stands as a Blame America monument that will make the despoilers of Ground Zero and the Flight 93 Red Crescent memorial jealous.

Espresso Pundit sounded the alarm after visiting the site and reported: “The memorial looks like a MoveOn.org webpage.” Flopping Aces and Allah followed up. Ace and his commenters are all over it. The East Valley Tribune picked up on the blogswarm here. MKH tracking here, with campaign donor info on some of the Arizona 9/11 commission members. You won’t be surprised.

Dan Riehl and Ace report on the educational curriculum being offered by the Arizona 9/11 memorial organization. It includes lessons like this:

Describe how key political, social, environmental, and economic events of the late 20th century and early 21st century (e.g., Watergate, OPEC/oil crisis, Central American wars/Iran-Contra, End of Cold War, first Gulf War, September 11) affected, and continue to affect, the United States.

Fox News covered the controversy this afternoon. Here’s Brian Wilson’s interview with Arizona state rep. Russell Pearce.

Five years after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, we must remain as vigilant as ever against those who would exploit jihadi acts of war and mass murder as opportunities to erect literal Guilt Complexes on American soil. They tried it at Ground Zero. They tried it at Shanksville. They succeeded in Arizona.

Where next?


Update: GOP AZ gubernatorial challenger Len Munsil is hosting a press conference tomorrow morning at 11am and has audio of Gov. Napolitano’s fawning over the memorial.

It’s hard to improve on the memorial moonbattery, but the Photoshopping has begun: Sean Gleeson and Six Meat Buffet have fun.
