The Obama White House is behind a coldly calculated political effort to erase the meaning of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks from the American psyche and convert September 11th into a day of leftist celebration and statist idolatry.
In April, Obama designated September 11th as a National Day of Service. The administrations plans were outlined in an August 11th White House sponsored teleconference run by 'Reverend' Lennox Yearwood, President of Hip Hop Caucus.
On August 4th, the White House offered a glimpse into its plans to descerate 9/11 for political advantage. Van Jones, co-founder of ColorofChange.org appeared in a 33 minute video posted on the official blog of the White House that 9/11 will be a great opportunity "for people to connect, to find other people in your peer group who are also passionate about repowering America but also greening up America and cleaning up America".
On the same day, Secretarys from HUD. EPA DOE and activists held a low-key press conference
stating that the National Day of Service will be the 'first milestone' of a larger effort called Green the Block. From policy creation to community implementation, the Green the Block campaign wants to see access and opportunity created for all Americans, to build prosperity and a healthier planet for future generations.
I refuse to let the Obama Administration reinvent and trivalize my memories of 09.11.01. I remember watching the airplanes explode into the buildings, looking at the clock and thinking that this is minute that changes everything in my life.
