As is my tradition, we pause today to remember those who lost their lives in the Islamic terrorist attack on America and on American civilians September 11, 2001.
Celebrating today as a “Day of Service” hides the face of an evil as vile as any that has ever existed on this planet.
These hateful ideologues didn’t just attack America on 9-11, they attacked the idea of America. They hate the very values that made America the great nation it is, the champion of freedom and the light of liberty in a very dark world.
In my wildest imagination I never dreamed that we would voluntarily surrender any of those sacred freedoms and liberties. Nor would I have ever believed that 11 years hence we would stand poised as a nation to relinquish many more in the next election.
On this somber day of remembrance (no, not “day of service”) let us remember not just the victims, but why we fight. We fight to preserve the American Idea;
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
And that the government derives it’s powers from the consent of the governed – not the other way around.
So we will continue to fight the onslaught of tyrants and ideologues who seek to destroy that idea and with it the concept of American exceptionalism; be they foreign or domestic.
May God bless America, and preserve her freedom to seek that blessing.
Regular programming will resume shortly. Please stay calm and carry on.
