(Just so you know, YES, I am posting college footbaw today, but this post is somewhat more important to me. If I get hung up reading all the War on Islam Posts today, so be it.)
Today marks the ninth terrible anniversary of the Muslims declaring war on the United States with a brutal act designed to kill as many innocent men, women, and children as possible. Whether luckily or not, they managed to kill minimally 2,996. The fallout that came afterward claimed other lives.
This act was the Kennedy Assassination for people my age. Yes, we remember exactly what we were doing, who was with us, what was going on at the time. We remember it like yesterday, IF we are not sheeple.
Many people want to bury their heads in the sand about what caused those kissy-faced Religion of Peacers to perpetrate that act. I am under no disillusions about it. Their religion teaches them to KILL anyone that does not practice Islam. I guess "PEACE" has a different meaning to them.
Instead of rehashing my story over and over again, I gave a brief synopsis of it last year. There are links on that page from the folks that had posted by the time I made my post. It is a rabbit hole people. If you want to take the entire day to read those links, just know that it is going to bring back those awful things that you felt on September 11, 2001. AND THAT IS A GOOD THING.
My buddy, Classicaliberal, posted the entire day as it unfolded last year and he is doing the same this year. Last year, all I did was sit there and refresh his page. It was awful, but much needed. Here are CL's entire post from last year, but you have to scroll to the bottom of the page and read UP to get them in order.
Seriously, watching that happen again is the most amazing thing on the entire interwebs. Nothing can compare.
There is also a "We Will Never Forget" page on Facebook. Go "LIKE" it now.
Chris Muir at Day by Day had his post up very early today.
More links in no particular order, but the one in which I grabbed them from my reader.
Yesterday, Red declared "Islamaphobia" as one of her banned words. I'm in, but I have been in from the first time I heard that ridiculous shit.
Boogie has his first post on the Muslim attacks. It is kinda weird to see what someone that was barely out of diapers remembers. But, he kinda got it all and he kinda remembers pretty much every emotion that I have to this day.
Lisa G was out in front of this because the clock is wrong in New Zealand. Her's was the very first post that I saw last night with images. Dammit, I hate those images.
Jumping in Pools has the first twenty minutes of the Fox coverage. After you watch that in horror, keep refreshing their whole page, there is plenty more where that came from.
Right Girl's was the first post I saw today with the 2996 Project. Dammit, I just do not want to keep seeing those posts today, but I shall read every one that I see. I want to forget that whole, but it is impossible for me. I have a fucking soul.
Doug Mataconis has links to his past posts on the Muslims' act of war. ALL are terrifying reads.
Mitchieville remembers. Some of these posts are short and to the point, but no less powerful to me.
Blackfive has their 2996 Project. It is odd to think that there were NO SUCH THINGS as Milblogs in 2001.
Dean's post at Nonsensible Shoes has the light show that was supposed to usher in the rebuilding process.
The Reaganite Republican has a round-up of other posts and some powerful images, too.
Skunkfeathers, short, to the point.
Stacy McCain has links and the documentary on The Falling Man.
Taxes, Stupidity, and Death has video of the Muslims around the world CELEBRATING. Never forget.
Nigel, formerly of This Goes to Eleven, recounts his experience WORKING at Ground Zero.
Malkin has another round-up.
DRScoundrels has a personal recap that is chilling.
Red has her 2996 Project post up with links.
Gateway Pundit has the President George W. Bush "bullhorn speech." I do believe that proves that we have plummeted in the ability of our leadership since Bush left office.
On the Rocks has his 2996 Project.
Marathon Pundit has the Pentagon flag.
Lastly, the Flickr Blog has photos of the World Trade Center before the Muslims attacked.
How did anyone forget this happened? How could anyone ever forget this happened? How could anyone ever elect another Democrat and allow something else like this to happen in the future?
