Some 9/11 Relatives Idiotarians

• Views: 710

I’ve become somewhat inured to media bias; I still see it, but it no longer causes me to undergo severe outrage. Hey, you can’t stay outraged 24 hours a day.

But rarely, if ever, have I seen such naked bias and political axe-grinding as in this AP story: Some 9/11 Relatives Angered by Bush Ads.

“It makes me sick,” said Colleen Kelly, who lost her brother Bill Kelly Jr., in the attacks and leads a victims families group called Peaceful Tomorrows. “Would you ever go to someone’s grave site and use that as an instrument of politics? That truly is what Ground Zero represents to me.”

Context, anyone? “Peaceful Tomorrows” is a far-left group of useful idiots, who often show up on stage at International ANSWER rallies, sharing the podium with representatives of groups connected to the very terrorists who murdered their relatives on September 11. I have sympathy for their loss, but absolutely no respect for their naive and suicidal political beliefs.

The article also quotes the head of a firefighter’s group that has endorsed John Kerry. No bias here.

Harold Schaitberger, the firefighter union’s president, said: “We’re not going to stand for him to put his arm around one of our members on top of a pile of rubble at Ground Zero during a tragedy and then stand by and watch him cut money for first responders.”

I wholeheartedly approve of President Bush using images of September 11 in his campaign ads. It is completely legitimate. The man was President when we were attacked. It’s part of his record.

The real scandal is how the media immediately shied away from the images of that day, treating the American public as if it were an excitable infant who had to be kept away from anything that might cause it to become angry.

UPDATE: Harold Schaitberger, the firefighter union’s president quoted above, actually stumps for John Kerry. (Hat tip: Andjam.)

The Democratic Party is clearly very scared of the issue of September 11, and will do and say anything to keep it off the agenda.

UPDATE: And the media elites are also mobilizing to put the worst possible slant on the Bush advertisements. I count no less than a dozen wire stories with a negative bias currently at Yahoo; and that’s just from a quick glance.
