We Forgot

On September 11, 2001, Islamic terrorists hijacked four passenger jets. Two of them were flown into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center, bringing them to the ground in flames. One crashed into the Pentagon. Some believe that the last jet was targeted on the White House, but the passengers, hearing reports of the other attacks and knowing that they were doomed anyway, heroically chose to assault the cockpit and bring that plane down in a Pennsylvania field. Almost 3,000 people were killed and more than 6,000 were injured. The attacks of 9/11 remain the deadliest terrorist act in world history. For months and years afterwards, our motto in response to 9/11 was “Never Forget!”

Do you remember the celebrations across the Islamic world as news of America’s losses were reported? The guns fired into the air, the laughter, the cheers, the shopkeepers handing out candy to the children? It was a terrible blow to the United States, but we struck back. Almost ten years later, Osama bin Laden, the mastermind of that attack, died in Pakistan with an American bullet in his brain put there by a U. S. Navy SEAL. The Taliban, who allowed bin Laden to shelter in Afghanistan while planning and executing the attack, also paid a dear price. The United States entered Afghanistan, crushed the Taliban and installed a (more or less) democratically-elected government.

Now, almost twenty years after that devastating attack, after a trillion dollars spent and thousands of American lives lost, the Islamic terrorists of the world are celebrating again. They are celebrating because, with Afghanistan almost completely under our control, a stable government in place, the Afghan people–for the first time in history–experiencing a taste of freedom, and after twenty years of safety at home from a significant terrorist attack, the United States suddenly surrendered and went home.

The United States of America, arguably the most powerful nation on earth, tucked tail and scurried out in the middle of the night leaving behind a billion dollars worth of sophisticated high-tech materiel that will now equip the Taliban warriors as they terrorize and subdue the Afghan people. America left behind thousands of Afghan patriots who risked their lives to aid our cause and to whom we had made solemn promises of safety, and who will now be hunted down and murdered by the Taliban using those weapons that Joe Biden donated to their cause. And we left behind hundreds (perhaps thousands–we don’t know for sure) of American citizens who will now serve as hostages to the Islamic terrorists to whom we ceded control of the country.

The attack of 9/11 was devastating to America, but it drew us together as a nation and strengthened our resolve to recover and exact revenge on those who planned that attack. What has just been done to the United States is worse than the events of 9/11. Much worse. America is an idea, and you cannot destroy an idea by flying planes into buildings and killing people–even thousands of them. You destroy the idea of America by seizing control of its government, demoralizing and dividing its people, infiltrating its population with millions of illegal immigrants and illegally imported refugees, corrupting its justice with preferential treatment for political allies and harsh persecution of political enemies, humiliating and betraying its warriors, alienating its allies, polluting its reputation with the stink of failure, dishonor and treachery, and lying to the citizens of this great country until the public despair of ever hearing the truth again from the nation’s leaders.

Joe Biden, the Democrats, the Deep State, the Globalists and their allies in the “woke” United States Military high brass are the ones who flew these planes into our building and brought it down. Where is the outrage? Where is the anger? Where is the righteous fury of the American people directed at the people who dealt the United States this terrible blow? Where is the leader who will rally Americans now? Where is our resolve to avenge this damage to our nation? Where is the voice that will unite all Americans in the cause of saving the country where our children must live their lives? Who will demand accountability for the ones who carried out this attack?

We have got to stop electing people who hate our country.
