Because They’re Getting A Lot of Help
Earlier this week in our Special “9/11 Rant” E-dition, The Blower explained how after September 11, we swore America would never forget, but that only 15 years later, the country is already forgetting. Tragically, these days young people who have any ideas at all about why the unprovoked Radical Islamic terror atrocities of 9/11 occurred seem to buy into a vague and totally false notion, spoon-fed to them in a steady diet of Political Correctness by Obama’s and Hillary’s Liberal Allies, that it was really America’s fault. Killing nearly 3,000 people and destroying a few buildings was not a victory that would change the course of history in favor of expansionist Islam, but Americans blaming themselves for it, certainly is.
And as time passes, students on our nation’s campuses continue to become further removed from the 9/11 attacks given their ages in 2001. This year’s freshmen were only two years old that day. Last year, YAF visited the campus of George Mason University to see how much students know about the attacks and whether they think their professors should do a better job of educating them.
Also last year, The Blower says, not all of us were mourning 9/11 victims and their families Monday on the 15th anniversary of the attacks. Thousands of college kids across the country were instead being taught to sympathize with the terrorists.
That’s because their America-hating leftist professors are systematically indoctrinating them into believing it’s all our fault, that the US deserved punishment for “imperialism” — and the kids are too young to remember or understand what really happened that horrific day.
So how did our young people ever grow up not learning the “Lessons of 9/11?” The Blower blames their parents and the over-taxed payer funded public dumbing-down system for that. Somebody ought to ask what children were being taught about 9/11 at the Forrest Gump School District on Monday. What he heard from the ones we asked was not very encouraging.
