URGENT: WTC Memorial is Being Hijacked!

If you haven't already heard about the plans to turn the memorial at WTC Ground Zero into a museum of America's foibles...please go read Michelle Malkin's column about this (Mudville Gazette also has a really comprehensive post about it too).

It was first brought to light by Debra Burlingame (a 9/11 widow) in a WSJ Op-Ed and on Bill Bennet's radio show (you can listen to some of the interview HERE and you can read the Op-Ed piece HERE).
Burlingame brought the plans to turn what should be a memorial to the thousands that lost their life on September 11, 2001 to an IFC retrospective of world hunger, religious persecution, and slavery and the 'museum' will hold live discussions about how the United States may be responsible for those that died there. They have stated that the memorial "was not conceived to capture the horror or 9/11". WHAT?! This is the place were (as Burlingame put it) 20,000 body parts were found. The ACTUAL site --and they want to turn this into a Blame-America museum? An indictment of ourselves?...on that ground?! I am SICK about this.

If you are beginning to wan in your will and if the memory isn't as horrible as it once was...you need to 'Google' World Trade Center and click the 'Images' button --and look at the first pictures of the first two rows. GRAPHIC.

Please GO HERE and let your opinion on this be heard. (This is the site for the Lower Manhattan Development Cooperation).
There has also been a TAKE BACK THE MEMORIAL site that has been set up that has tons of resources and contact numbers.

"The public will have come to see 9/11 but will be given a high-tech, multimedia tutorial about man's inhumanity to man, from Native American genocide to the lynchings and cross-burnings of the Jim Crow South, from the Third Reich's Final Solution to the Soviet gulags and beyond. This is a history all should know and learn, but dispensing it over the ashes of Ground Zero is like creating a Museum of Tolerance over the sunken graves of the USS Arizona."
-Debra Burlingame, Wall Street Journal (6/7/2005)

PLEASE spread these links to as many people as you can --and listen for events in your area sponsored by your local talk radio hosts!

Michelle Malkin has an UPDATE posted today.

**Speaking of Terrorism, do all you naysayers realize that it is because of the Patriot Act that the Lodi, California Pakistani Father and Son terror-duo was caught and can be held...it could have been your supermarket they intended to blow up...**
