"All this 9/11 worship is ghoulish and downright silly. Some Brit on ______.com is even making fun of our pompous charade." Daily Kos.com (I have deleted the British blog site.)
The left-wing blog, Daily Kos, has sunk to a new low. As I write, on that blog appears a cartoon of two planes heading into the Twin Towers. The caption reads, "Happy Twin Towers Day". It was borrowed from a sick British blogger with the above Kos comment. (I have chosen not to show the cartoon. It is too outrageous.)
Reader responses to the Kos range from agreement to anger. Some readers praise the Brits for being more stoic and less hung-up on things like 9-11. Others admonish the Kos for showing the cartoon.
There is nothing funny about 9-11. No cartoon about what happened that day can be considered tasteful. The cartoon that the Kos chose to publish and praise is tantamount to spitting on the graves of the 3,000 people who were slaughtered that day.
I hope that curious readers who browse the Daily Kos and read its political opinions will also consider its association with this infamous cartoon. The editor, Markos Moulitzos, is the same character who made light of the murder of American contractors in Iraq whose bodies were hung from a bridge. "Screw 'em", said Moulitzos. Now this.
This is the same man that has appeared on Keith Olbermann's "Countdown Show" as a commentator. I wonder what Olbermann (who just excoriated John McCain and the RNC for using 9-11 images at their convention) has to say about his pal's embracing of this cartoon.
This past year, the Democratic presidential contenders including Barack Obama attended the Daily Kos annual convention. I wonder what they have to say about the Kos now. Will anybody from the media ask them? I doubt it.
The Daily Kos and its editor are beneath contempt. They are sick, twisted people. As stated above, I have chosen not to reproduce the cartoon or reveal the British blog site that produced it. As for you "Free Speech" devotees, please don't bother me with your lame arguments. Go see the cartoon yourselves at the Daily Kos. You won't see it here.
