It isn’t no secret that Republicans care not about the thousands that perished on that September morning in 2001, but it does deserve a little reminder from time to time:
A Republican candidate for Governor of New York this morning reached new heights of rhetorical condemnation of health care legislation, comparing its passage to the attacks of September 11, 2001.
“The day that that bill was passed will be remembered just as 9/11 was remembered in history,” Carl Paladino, a Buffalo businessman seeking the Republican and Conservative Party lines, told host Curtis Sliwa on AM 970 The Apple this morning. “It was an attempt by these people in Washington to defy the Constitution. It is clearly in conflict with all of the basic precepts of the Constitution.”
So a bill meant to help ensure the well being of millions of our citizens is the equivalent to a violent attack that claimed the lives of thousands of innocents?
Perhaps Carl needs to learn the definition of terrorism:
- the use of violence and threats to intimidate or coerce, esp. for political purposes.
- the state of fear and submission produced by terrorism or terrorization.
- a terroristic method of governing or of resisting a government.
Read number 1 over and over again Carl and think about what you are doing. You are using a terrorist attack for political purpose. In other words, you are acting as a terrorist by proxy. So excuse me for telling you to go “Cheney yourself” since you are siding with our enemies.
