9/11 Anniversary: We now prefer, not victory, but self-doubt, guilt and victimhood

by LAWRENCE SELLIN, PHD September 7, 2016

For me, September 11, 2016 is a more significant date than September 11, 2001. It demonstrates how far we have sunk as a nation in a scant fifteen years.

We now have a political-media narrative of negativity and defeat; one that labels patriotism as hate speech, promotes tribalism as opposed to national unity and fosters the notion that the United States is the embodiment of evil in the world.

We now have a President who enables rather than opposes the aims of our enemies, one whose divisive rhetoric and destructive policies are deliberately designed to weaken and humble a great nation.

We now have political correctness as a substitute for the First Amendment.

We now have a flag, a pledge of allegiance and a national anthem that are considered offensive.

We now have a Democrat Party of coffeehouse communists and Islamic groupies, willing to embrace lies, corruption, government malfeasance and obstruction of justice as politics as usual.

We now have a Republican Party dominated by globalists, obsessed with the acquisition of personal power and profit, uninterested and unwilling to defend the rights, liberties and well-being of American citizens.

We now have a media that manipulates rather than informs, a blunt political tool of the ruling class that bears all the hallmarks of Soviet journalism: selective reporting of the news, disinformation and a willing subservience to the establishment's agenda.

We now have a military leadership that has replaced combat readiness with social engineering; a senior cadre selected for its political malleability and deficit of moral courage; one always eager to choose what is right for their careers rather than what is right for the country.

We now have an education system that weakens our ability to transmit to the next generation the values and traditions upon which the United States was built; one formulated to narrowing the range of thought in order to make independent thinking literally impossible; one dedicated to the systematic destruction of language as "microagressions" or simply making statements that are patently untrue.

We now have a country that is coming apart, not just the United States the sovereign nation, but our Constitution, our culture, our traditions, all of what "America" has come to mean.

It is time to take America back.
