    As I've said many times... it's patently obvious that liberals are self loathing people who by definition hate the USA.

    http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/07/28/911-memorial-ban-photo-firefighters

    According to Elizabeth Greenspan, author of the up coming book Battle for Ground Zero (St. Martin’s Press), Michael Shulan, creative director of the 9/11 Memorial Museum, thought about cutting the famed photo from Ground Zero of three firefighters raising the American flag amidst the rubble of the World Trade Center…because he thought it was too “rah-rah America.” Shulan said, “I really believe that the way America will look best, the way we can really do best, is to not be Americans so vigilantly and so vehemently.”

    It seems like Breitbart is also a source for people who are self-loathing. I mean, why would anyone want to read stories designed only to piss them off every single day?

    My guess is that if you didnt avidly consume conservative media everyday, and just lived life, you probably wouldnt think this at all.

    It's because I care about the Constitution and I run a business and employ lots of people and am raising and educating two kids that I care very very much about the progressive agenda to destroy the fabric of this country.

    This is exactly the left's plan. Get enough people to not pay attention, and they can do whatever the hell they want. Unfortunately, It's worked the last two presidential elections.

    Hey look

    Another thread where the left does not want to talk about the topic at hand. Some will blame the messenger, some will throw strawmen up repeatedly, and some will laugh at all the ignorant people posting in this thread. (Oh the irony.)

    How about commenting on what was posted in the op.

    Not to mention the phony Benghazi story and the phony IRS scandal and the phony DOJ scandal and the phony NSA scandal. All brought to us by the phony President.

    My comment is: why should I care? It doesnt make me happy, sad or angry about anything. My life didnt change one bit from when I didnt know about it to when I did.

    Just wondering, how do we know that Michael Shulan is a liberal/leftist?

    Ultimately that's unimportant to the story. From what I can tell is that someone wanted to undercut the mythology (i.e. the state propaganda aspects of 9/11) and portray an event in more complex terms by showing multiple angles of the depiction/scene. And this is somehow symbolic of something for certain people who like to get angry about dumb things.

    Pretty irrelevant what flavor of loony wanker the guy is, I suppose. But loony wanker is a settled thing.

    The next time I get a letter from the IRS can I just throw it away and call it a phony?

    Good friggin luck.

    Progressives to the masses - "shushhhhhhh....just go to sleep. I'll tell you when to wake up".

    I think someone needs to calibrate their sarcasm sensor.
