Stu Bykofsky’s, “To save America, we need another 9/11” is a classic example of the dumbing down of America.
In the most illogical exercise of pseudo problem solving since Senator Obama’s claim that he would withdraw U.S. troops from Iraq and then attack Afghanistan, Bykofsky opines that another 9/11 would unify the country again just like the days immediately following the infamous terrorist attack on America, but this fallacious fantasizing and selective memory is typical of what is wrong with this country.
[I’m] sick of how splintered we are politically - thanks mainly to our ineptitude in Iraq - that we have forgotten who the enemy is.Mr. Bykofsky way before 9/11 we were a politically splintered Nation you remember the Red state, Blue state divide that was being reported on during the 2000 elections? Enemy lines in America were drawn then much before the events of 9/11 or the war in Iraq!
This country had just gone through one of the most divisive elections in recent history. Al Gore reneged on his election night concession to George W. Bush thereby unleashing a partisan war in this country the likes which only differs from the American Civil War in that the bodies that were spewed across the American landscape were political bodies not the actual physical bodies of the original war that divided this Nation.
It is not the Iraq war which divides this nation it is the political partisan infighting that divides this nation and changed forever the way we do and view politics today. Gore and Democrats took this country on the most politically destructive course imaginable and along the way they made it their business to cast doubt upon the American election process by declaring that process fraudulent. As well some on the left, by association or by direct accusation declared an American President illegitimate.
We have had almost 12 years of this kind of political drama that is why we don’t know who the enemy is if you are a Democrat your party tells you that your enemy is a Republican. That is what started this divided nation!
What Bykofsky over looks is that 9/11 was just a brief respite in the middle of political anarchy that American partisan politics had just begun to evolve into not some mystical healing occasion for the Nation.
As proof of that, not days after that most tragic event Democrats where back at it blaming the President for not reacting and responding with appropriate command at the terrorist threat.
Bykofsk’s simplistic analysis misses that point all together. No disaster, political or natural, will bring America together again after the trauma of Al Gore’s Chadgate and the subsequent Supreme Court intervention that Chadgate caused.
An intervention, by the way, that derailed the Left’s attempt to force the Democrat Party on the people of the United States, as so many other leftist causes had previously been put upon the people. The left has forced every other one of their causes ranging from the illegitimate claim of separation of church and state to the “homosexual agenda” for constitutional rights to human caused global warming, the left has forced its agenda on the America people through the very courts a.
Another disaster will not fix this divide Mr. Bykofsky. Katrina didn’t, Rita didn’t, the felled bridge in Minneapolis didn’t, and another 9/11 won’t. The only thing that will bring this country together again is rejection of those who practice the partisan politics of personal destruction.
And just who is practicing such politics? Just listen to the debates and when you hear Bush bashing or the pronouncement that the war is lost or failed or wrong, you will more than likely find at the end of those politically charged statements a partisan that is the reason that this country is so divided.
You what to be like Europe? France and Italy recently elected Conservatives rejecting the Liberal ideology that had dominated those countries for years.
You what another 9/11 Mr. Bykofsky then let the country reject the partisan liberals that are in Congress and then let them elect a strong Conservative majority in the Senate and House, you want another 9/11, then reject the liberals who are campaigning for the Democratic nomination for President and lets all vote for a Republican for President.
I can see it now Republicans take control and both the House and Senate and a Republican President, and all liberals on the ground all across the blue states in the fetal position crying, “What happen another 9/11?”
Just drop the liberalism, you don't have to drop another bomb!
