New York, New York
I still consider myself tied spiritually to the city. So it pisses me off when a city of 8 million, the most diverse place in the universe, is used as a metaphor for "Upper West Side Jewish Liberal." And it pisses me off still more that there has, for some time, been a creeping corruption of the actual history of Sept. 11, 2001 among the various freepers and Wall St. Journal editorial writers. If you read these people, not only is New York no more than some kind of communist gay bathhouse, but in fact Sept. 11 was a metaphysical attack on the heartland of our country. And while there was a well-chronicled attack on a field in Pennsylvania, it was not, despite what you may have seen or heard, a real, ya know, physical attack on lower Manhattan.
If it were up to them, they'd put the state of Kansas in charge of building a memorial down there.
Let's face it: New Yorkers are known for abusing the First Amendment... Once the IFC and Drawing Center are up and running, there'll be no stopping them.
Yep, can't have any of that damn "First Amendment" stuff in a building called the "Freedom Tower."
Free Republic concurs in its usual guttural roar: "The liberal parasites of New York are not capable of recognition of bravery, of sacrife....the liberal trash of your state is only concerned WITH SELF, encouraged on by their witch of a so-called Senator..." etc.
Those 3,000 poor souls who died that day trying to get out of the WTC? Not New Yorkers, that's for sure. That should be obvious to you by now.
The city was a shell of itself for months. For weeks, throughout the lower half of Manhattan, you could smell the smoldering of the buildings' remains. A weird chemical smell that you didn't want to think too much about. The city's economy was in ruins only now just recovering, and the same for many New Yorkers' mental health. So for the second week in a row, this liberal parasite says to the growing chorus of mainstream convservativevilifyingng people like my colleagues in New York as traitors and "fifth columnists," "fuck you."
