17 years later where did all of the patriotism and unity go after 9-11?
The date 9-11, 2001 will always be ingrained in my mind. A horrible day for America. I was at work selling duck for a northern Indiana company. Saw the first reports on the news. American Airlines Flight 11 crashes into the North tower of the World Trade Center. Everybody was wondering if this were an accident. Did they lose an engine and then not have control of the plane.
Then 17 minutes later United flight 175 crashes into the South tower and all doubts of an accident were erased. Thirty four minutes later American Airlines flight 77 crashes into the Pentagon. When United flight 93 crashed in a field in Southeast PA everyone instinctively knew our lives had changed forever.
In the days after 9-11 Americans united. for a brief few months it didn’t matter if you were Republican or Democrat (no Socialist would admit it back then). It didn’t matter if you were straight or gay, white or black. We were all Americans and National pride filled all our hearts. The only enemy was the terrorist that killed almost 3,000 of our fellow Americans,. The dead included mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, firefighters, paramedics, police, bankers, secretaries but all Americans.
Of course politicians got back to normal backbiting in days. With the Democrats questioning President Bush handling. Continuing to read a book to children when first told of the attack.
For the months after 9-11 Americans united and patriotism was at an all time high. Flags flew on Americans houses. The division of Democrat and Republican was erased. We had a common enemy. alQaeda and there leader Osama bin Laden. There was nobody disrespecting the flag of the United States of America. Political arguments were more civil at least for a few months.
Since 9-11 where has the national unity gone? Police and firefighters were held in high regard after 9-11. The military certainly was held in high regard. Then in 2008 came the countries first black President Barack Hussein Obama. With the assistance of the liberal press police were denigrated. It started with the shooting of a young black man Michael Brown in Ferguson MO. He was shot by white police officers. It is debatable weather he is a young saint as the left would describe or a high on drugs thug in the wrong place at wrong time as others have said.
The narrative began and Barack Hussein Obama fanned the flames that white cops were going out trying to shoot black men. Black lives matter essentially a terrorist group was formed and Colin Kaepernick went from a quarterback one game away from the Super Bowl to a 70’s afro thug on new Nike commercial. The NFL has been in a 3 year debate about a handful of players that will not stand for the National Anthem protesting social justice causes.
The Congress is so divided the Congressional Black Caucus could not even celebrate record low black unemployment at February’s State of the Union address. Trump derangement syndrome is at an all time high. Maxine Waters is on a crusade that keeps her up at night to get rid of Trump. A Hollywood star has even called for President Trump’s assassination.
It is not unusual for people to unite after a horrific event such as 9-11 and then go back to normal living. But more civility. More unity. More love. More National Pride would sure be nice right now.
It really is an indication of the derangement of those on the left. For 8 years under Barack Hussein Obama myself and millions of other conservative Americans did not burn stuff in the street. Call for the assassination of President Obama. We did not call his daughters cunts or his wife a whore. The left are like a bunch of celebration trophy generation millinneals. They simply cannot accept losing.
