Bush Signing Flag

As part of Wedge Issue June, the good ol’ boys of the Republican party are pulling out the big guns with S.J.RES.12, the joint resolution (with the House of Representatives) “to prohibit the physical desecration of the flag of the United States,” evoking BOTH 9/11 and the American flag to energize their angry base. Said the measure’s author, Orrin Hatch (R-UT):

“After September 11, citizens proudly flew the flag, defying the terrorist challenge to our core values of liberty and equality, and confirming its unique status as a symbol of our nation’s strength and purpose… In the struggle that has followed, our flag stands as a reminder of the many personal sacrifices made to protect and strengthen our nation. And so, to protect this symbol, I am today introducing this amendment.”

I hope the victims of 9/11 stand up in a public outcry against this Adminstration’s petty peddling of their tragedy.

Rather than just the victims of the 9/11 tragedy, I wish all Americans, and the world would stand up in rage about how 9/11 has been handled across the board. There are a rising number of people who are quite well aware that the events surrounding 9/11 were well coordinated by our own government.

If you don’t know what I am talking about, take the time to check out the latest version of a great documentary.
