Shameful political correctness at Ground Zero
Other than the planes actually hitting the WTC, this is perhaps the most iconic image from 9/11. Yet the director of the Ground Zero memorial, Michael Shulan, tried to get this picture cut from the photograph display because to him, it was "too rah rah, America".
What an asshole! This attack happened to America, killed Americans, and any memorial should reflect that. By saying that, he disqualified himself from that position. Clearly his bigger message is that the US is a welcoming, diverse, accepting, and tolerant nation.....gag me!
We are neither welcoming, accepting, or tolerant of terrorists. He wants to make the Ground Zero memorial about something bigger like world peace, universal understanding, and love or some such crap. That's not what it's about. It's about Americans not faltering in the face of barbarians intent on doing us harm and if Shulan waters down the memorial to the point of politically correct meaninglessness, I won't bother to go see it.
