Moonbat 9/11 Memorial

Arizona taxpayers have financed a purported 9/11 memorial that is actually a monument to leftist propaganda, depicting the events of September 11, 2001 not as a terrorist atrocity or even as a tragedy, but as a pretext used by the USA to wage war.

Here's the design of the memorial, via Flopping Aces:



Now here's the real thing, at Wesley Bolin Plaza in Phoenix, via Espresso Pundit:


As you can see, the memorial is crescent-shaped, as if in homage to the Muslim authors of 9/11. Phrases are cut through the metal so that the sun will hit different ones throughout the day, inscribing them in light on the ground below — phrases like this:


This refers to an American plane accidentally dropping a bomb on a wedding party in Afghanistan.

Here's another one, suggesting it's all our fault for not stopping the attacks:


And a third, listing significant events that contributed to the USA going to war, namely the sinking of the Lusitania, Pearl Harbor, the Gulf of Tonkin incident, and of course, 9/11:


Many moonbats believe the Gulf of Tonkin incident to be entirely bogus. The attempt to equate 9/11 with Tonkin implies a correlation of Vietnam with the War on Terror — a notion cherished by liberals because, thanks to their fifth-column maneuvering, we lost in Vietnam.

To sum up, this is not a memorial to those who died on 9/11, but an attempt to trivialize that historic day in the course of hijacking it for left-wing propaganda purposes.

Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano describes this abomination as "unique, bold, educational and unforgettable." Ace is right to hope that after this outrage, Nappy will find herself no longer cruising toward victory in her reelection campaign.

On a tip from Wiggins.

This turns my stomach. Though it proves that moonbats do infact have a smaller brain then everyone else.

Kind of resembles a giant toilet seat. Figures that it's full of crap.
Hopefully, the creepy kids that "tag" everything in sight won't overlook this abomination.

This is insane; it can't possibly be true. How was this approved? Who paid for this? Doesn't violate some sort of statute against my taxpayer money paying for treasonous bile?

According to the website, the memorial was not paid for with public funds.

It is not a crescent, rather an asymmetrical ring tilted so that it can follow the arc of the sun.

Espresso pundit took those cherry picked pictures, and come to his/her own conclusion as to the meaning. It's just delusional. But, considering that this non-story is making it's way throught the righty blogosphere, I figured I'd point out that it is rediculous to call this a 'moonbat' memorial, especially without reviewing any of the other words and phrases on there. I suppose with a website called 'moonbattery', you have no choice but to come to that conclusion as well. Congratualtions for embarrassing yourselves though.

ChenZhen, speaking of people embarrassing themselves, you might want to try using a spell checker. People can see with their own eyes that it's a crescent, just as they can see with their own eyes references to events that no reasonable person would include on a 9/11 memorial.

No reasonable person would lie to start a war.

Name the lie

The Gulf of Tonkin incident was bogus. McNamara admitted it in The Fog of War.

That being said, the Memorial is still ugly as shit.

How many of the people who allowed this abomination personally where there when it happened?How many of them smelled the smell of death and distruction that day and walked through the ashes and dust and thought to them selves
" who and how many people I'm I stepping on".

I didn't interpret the inscriptions the same way you guys did. I guess it might be a matter of perspective exactly like absolutely everything else in life.

so simple, yet somehow so hard to grasp

*shrugs shoulders*

Now I get it, Jess. There's no right or wrong, it's all just a matter of perspective. How could I have been such a fool?

Memorials are a place of contemplation. Therefore they should bring healing to the wounds suffered and honor those loved ones that were taken from us on that horrific day that none of us will ever forget!

Not far from this memorial lies the anchor from the USS Arizona...My mother lost her fiance aboard this ship. Because of this surprise attack on America not unlike the attack on NYC except for the fact that they aimed to kill innocent civilians, my mom's life changed immensely. The pain has never left her and lies deep inside. Where is the love for those who have suffered in this memorial? Where is the compassion? How will this serve to heal those who are suffering!
