I don't have much to say today on the 19th anniversary that I and others haven't said ad nauseum before. Thousands of Americans lost their lives, thousands more lost lives and limbs in the misguided wars that followed, hundreds of thousands of civilians also died both in America and overseas, and our freedoms were curtailed thanks to 19 hijackers.
Meanwhile we continue to bring more and more people who think like the hijackers into our country, and now we have even started to see them elected into Congress. People like Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib are different from the hijackers only in methodology. Their hatred of the American people and the American dream is the same.
9/11 was the last time Americans showed any sort of national unity, however briefly. 19 years ago we responded to tragedy with flags flying and chants of "USA! USA!"
I remember that moment like it was yesterday. In an otherwise disastrous presidency, that was the best moment for George W. Bush and everything for him has been downhill since. I still get chills when I hear those words.
Today we have millionaire pampered athletes who denigrate the same flag Americans waved in the days after 9/11. We have Marxist gangs rampaging in our streets with politicians running cover for them. We have had four years of the full might of the Federal bureaucracy seeking to overturn the results of the 2016 election and we are weeks away from what promises to be the most contentious and fraudulent election in American history. Hell, we might be a few months away from open civil war in America.
19 years later and one thing is certain to me: we will never know what really happened in the days leading up to, on that day and the days that followed 9/11. One need not be a "conspiracy theorist" to smell something rotten in the official reports.
September 11th, 2001 will likely not be memorialized much longer in America. The official "bad guys" are a protected class and Islamist's are above reproach in America. While we spent the years after 9/11 going abroad seeking monsters to destroy, most of us didn't realize the real monsters were in America already, working to destroy Western civilization.
The culmination of that malevolent labor is coming soon and will make 9/11 look like a walk on the beach.
