If they Won’t…

…we will. It was just a few weeks after Sept. 11, 2001, if I remember correctly, that the American broadcast networks embargoed further showings of what happened that day, lest Americans become “angry.” “Angry,” I think, means ready to vote for Republicans. Since that time, images of the Islamofascist attack on America have circulated underground, as a form of samizdata. Reader J. Corley forwarded us this Flash animation, which combines 18th century quotes with September 2001 images. It’s pretty darn good.
I’ve never been a big Sam Adams fan, but maybe his time has come at last. The animation quotes Thomas Paine: “If there must be trouble let it be in my time, that my child may have peace.” We have, among us, nine children, and that perhaps sums up the motivation behind this site as well as anything.
