On Obama's re-branding of 9/11

Let’s just make this “about me” instead

[UPDATE-Event deleted from site, guess it wasn’t such a good idea after all?]

It was to be a day of remembrance for the victims of 9/11, and a reminder to always be vigilant; the eleventh of September was to be Patriot Day;

In the United States, Patriot Day occurs on September 11 of each year, designated in memory of the nearly three thousand who died in the September 11, 2001, attacks. Most Americans refer to the day as “Nine-Eleven (9/11),” “September 11th,” or some variation thereof.

On September 4, 2002, President Bush used his authority created by the resolution and proclaimed September 11, 2002, as Patriot Day.

U.S. House of Representatives Joint Resolution 71 was approved by a vote of 407-0 on October 25, 2001. It requested that the President designate September 11 of each year as “Patriot Day.” President George W. Bush signed the resolution into law on December 18, 2001 (as Public Law 107-89). It is a discretionary day of remembrance.

Initially, the day was called the Prayer and Remembrance for the Victims Of the Terrorist Attacks on September 11, 2001.

Weak on national security as Democrats invariably are, it simply wouldn’t do to have the rascally Republicans continue to own the issue. What to do?

Take the issue away by making 9/11 about Obama’s issues, Obama’s people; in short about Obama.

Moe touched on this re-branding earlier, now Obama’s minions put it on his website.

2 PHONE CALLS ON 9/11 – Illinois! (Health Care Organizing Event)

All 50 States are coordinating in this – as we fight back against our own Right-Wing Domestic Terrorists who are subverting the American Democratic Process, whipped to a frenzy by their Fox Propaganda Network ceaselessly re-seizing power for their treacherous leaders.

STAY HOME FOR THIS EVENT! DO NOT GO ANYWHERE!
Stay HOME:
—* The Event consists of ALL OF US Making Two Phone Calls on one particular, single day.
—* We call each of our State Senators (phone numbers are below) on that day.

What day? Our US Senators return to DC the Tues after Labor Day. That next FRIDAY, Sep 11, is Patriot Day, designated in memory of the nearly three thousand who died in the 9/11 attacks.

Yes sir, that’s what I want our own Dear Leader putting up there for the world to see, calling those who disagree domestic terrorists.

They don’t stop there. Any of you reading this related to Bin Laden? Seems so;

—* RECLAIM OUR LAND FROM THE HEIRS OF, YES: BIN LADEN *—* YOU KNOW IT’S TRUE *—

In case you haven’t seen it in the News: Republican Representatives, Senators, GOP Party Leader, GOP Political Machine top personnel (e.g., Gingritch), etc etc etc — they’re ALL every one of them applauding and encouraging their zealot-horde by merrily referring to them as “Proud Right-Wing Terrorists”. Google it – I’m not pulling your leg.

Ok, enough already.

Anybody shocked that it would come around to Chicago? Anybody have doubts that Obama has at least some control over its content; marching orders via Rahm Emmanuel?

Now he wants to take 9/11 and rather than we be vigilant and remember those who perished, we should be “patriotic” by supporting leftist causes, such as the “Public Plan”.

I’d say there should be some fast explaining from the WH. I realize this is an Illinois event listed on the site, but the site uses His name, His brand, and I’m guessing His re-brand.

A leader would take charge, unless he is in charge.
