What President George W. Bush said in his Joint Address to Congress after September 11 is still pertinent today: "Great harm has been done to us. We have suffered great loss. And in our grief and anger we have found our mission and our moment. Freedom and fear are at war. The advance of human freedom -- the great achievement of our time, and the great hope of every time -- now depends on us. Our nation -- this generation -- will lift a dark threat of violence from our people and our future. We will rally the world to this cause by our efforts, by our courage. We will not tire, we will not falter, and we will not fail."
We also will not fail to speak up and speak out against Islamic terrorism despite the disapproval of our liberal friends, and despite hearing about typical liberal headlines like this: "Boston Bombing Suspects' Muslim Identity Provides Few Clues To Motivation For Bombing." (Via American Digest)
We will not fail to defiantly display our patriotism, and we will not care if it's "offensive" to non-Americans. This is our country, so if you hate us and hate America, feel free to leave!
This is from Robert Spencer at Jihad Watch: "However, nothing is more certain than that next week, Islamic supremacist and Leftist spokesmen will be featured on NBC and CNN decrying 'racism' and an imagined 'backlash' against innocent Muslims, which is always a feature of mainstream media coverage after a jihad attack, even though the 'backlash' itself never actually materializes. And there will be no accountability for that nonsense, either. Nowadays, it’s much more of a path to success to be politically correct than to be correct."
We who have never kowtowed to, or made excuses for, radical Muslim killers, are affected by Islamonausea. (Per Nicolai Sennels at Jihad Watch).
Let's reiterate: the Achilles Lauro, the Rome airport bombings, the hijacking of TWA Flight 847, the 1998 African embassies bombings, the first World Trade Center bombing, Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, the Khobar Towers, the USS Cole, the September 11 attacks, the Bali bombings, the July 7 London bombings, the 2005 Jordan "wedding bombings", and on and on; and now the Boston bombings. What do they have in common? People quickly forget these traumatic attacks. Let's keep reminding them.
