Michelle performed her annual empty gesture for the victims of the September 11, 2001, attacks on the NY and DC today. It amounted to some tl;dr copypasta from the 9/11 Commission Report. Eat it, bitches! 5 posts, timed closely to their respective events:
And, according to the rules, I had to read the comment threads for all of these… Good stuff after TEH jump.
All of the substantive comments fall into a few categories: ridiculing conspiracy theories; false “what I woulda done” heroism; proclamations of “remembering” 9/11.
Just to get something straight: Anyone whose brain was physically capable of forming long term memories remembers 9/11. Kids who were too young to actually remember, think they do because all of us obsess over extreme violence, as if the event itself defines us. What Michelle and her fans really want has little to do with “never forgetting” and everything to do with “always remembering.” Their claims of cooler-headed Americans “forgetting” about the attacks is based on us not having drafted all Americans ages 16 through 65 and waged war on any country that ever denied us our Exceptionalism.
It’s a good their protecting the Homeland from the front lines–Michelle Malkin’s comment form.
