September 11, 2001. A modern date that shall live in infamy because of coordinated terrorist attacks that killed 2,977 people on that date and led to the slaughter of around 200,000 non-combatants in Iraq and Afghanistan over the next several years.
The starkest reminder of this date is not what we can see, but rather, what we cannot. The twin towers of the World Trade Center were both toppled on that horrific day. In their place, a memorial was built and the Tribute in Light now shines every September 11 to remember those who perished on that day.
Unfortunately, this show of respect to the dead has allegedly been challenged by the Black Lives Matter movement. After months of rumored negotiations, the Tribute in Light will be canceled. Word is that BLM demanded that the tribute was to be done in blacklight and not white light to honor those who have been killed by police.
Art Tubolls, the curator for the World Trade Center memorial, spoke to the media:
“You’ve got to be kidding me. There are people out there that are so stupid and filled with hate that they actually believe that cancelling the Tribute in Light was to appease Black Lives Matter? Nobody from that movement has approached us.
We’re cancelling it to try to limit the spread of COVID-19. This is one of the most difficult decisions we’ve ever made. We know that it will upset some of the families and we feel badly about that. We just don’t have a choice.
President George W. Bush stood right over there and unified America. Now we have a so-called President who only cares about himself and seeks to divide us. Because of him, we have had FIFTY FIVE September 11s in terms of scale of death due to the pandemic.
We proudly support unity and racial equality. Don’t even bring these moronic and baseless accusations to us again.”
The liberals of New York hold nothing sacred. If we don’t have our tribute this September, we will be in danger of forgetting what happened on that date. The liberals are already trying to remove the date from history since it offends Muslims. We cannot allow them to win.
