In June, Debra Burlingame, sister of Charles F. "Chic" Burlingame III, pilot of downed American Airlines Flight 77, blew the whistle on plans by civil liberties zealots to turn Ground Zero in New York into a Blame America monument. On July 29, the Times editorial page, stocked with liberals who snort and stamp whenever their patriotism is questioned, slammed Burlingame and her supporters at Take Back the Memorial as "un-American" -- for exercising their free speech rights.As we said, the NYT's regards its sliming of Amerikkka as "free speech," but feels that anyone who defends our country, including the sister of a patriot slaughtered by the Islamofascists, is not entitled to the same rights. A case we would guess of all animals being equal. But some are more equal than others.
In this case, the Gramscian leftists controlling the MSM regard themselves as obviously our intellectual betters. But Americans in general don't cotton to this kind of condescension. The NYT and the MSM obviously still don't have a clue about this, however, as they continue to pursue fake but accurate stories. Readers are wising up, though, as evidenced by Bush's latest bounce in the polls—after all the treasonous leaks on the domestic spy program came out. Funny. The same poll finds that 64% of Americans actually support NSA's domestic skulduggery. Who knew?
