Today is a true day of remembrance in our country. Today, we honor the loss of over three thousand lives spread over three attacks and one thwarted attack ten years ago on this very day. We also bring in to thought the loved ones of those who were left behind. The family of the workers, the passengers, and the first responders whose lives all ended during the attacks or as a result. In the weeks that followed, there was an incredible surge of patriotism and nationalism that came about as the nation came to grips with the attack and because of how the leaders involved handled themselves and yet, on this solemn day ten years later, New York Times partisan and liberal idealogue, Paul Krugman, uses his column to take a cheap shot at former President Bush, former Mayor Guiliani and former New York Police Commissioner Bernie Kerik and call them “fake heroes”. This is the face of the liberal ideologue as it exists in our country today as the liberal left has no problem saying things that are categorically untrue and yet they expect everyone to take them at their word.
Krugman cites that “many of the our professional pundits….took the easy way out, turning a blind eye to the corruption and lending their support to the hijacking of the atrocity?” This is political cowardice on his part. How easy it is to look down your nose at those who were in the crosshairs and second guess and try to remake history.
House Joint Resolution 64 passed the House on September 14, 2001 420-1 with ten abstaining. Senate Resolution 23 passed 98-0 with 2 voting present-both resolutions authorizing the use of force against all those involved in the attack. So, in Krugman’s mind, all these votes are “turning a blind eye”. I think in reality, these votes represent the anger of the elected officials at the attack, let us not forget that Flight 93 has been thought to have been heading towards the Capitol where Congress was in session. I think also, that these votes represent the United States people as a whole, minus Krugman, who are willing to take a stand and fight for ourselves and for those around the world.
I think the real issue is that Paul Krugman is an academic elitist who hates the fact that our country rose up and defended itself and through his column today he has shown his true disdain for the “fake heroes” he attacks. This is the true face of a Liberal Idealogue-unwilling at all cost to be objective. His choice to not let people comment on his post shows his true cowardice.
