Paul Krugman’s 9/11 NYT ‘Column Of Shame’

From always the odious Paul Krugman, via the always reprehensible New York Times:

The Years of Shame

By Paul Krugman
September 11, 2011

Is it just me, or are the 9/11 commemorations oddly subdued?

Actually, I don’t think it’s me, and it’s not really that odd.

What happened after 9/11 — and I think even people on the right know this, whether they admit it or not — was deeply shameful. Te atrocity should have been a unifying event, but instead it became a wedge issue. Fake heroes like Bernie Kerik, Rudy Giuliani, and, yes, George W. Bush raced to cash in on the horror. And then the attack was used to justify an unrelated war the neocons wanted to fight, for all the wrong reasons.

A lot of other people behaved badly. How many of our professional pundits — people who should have understood very well what was happening — took the easy way out, turning a blind eye to the corruption and lending their support to the hijacking of the atrocity?

The memory of 9/11 has been irrevocably poisoned; it has become an occasion for shame. And in its heart, the nation knows it.

I’m not going to allow comments on this post, for obvious reasons.

Gee, I wonder why he does not allow comments.

Still, it’s almost as if being short, fat and amazingly unattractive has twisted Mr. Krugman’s mind.

    The stupid on this one is just too much.

  2. proreason says:

    Well, I used to think he was simply a sychopantic tool of the SorosMarxist cabal, more than happy to sieze every grubby penney he could by blowing his masters.

    But now it comes clear.

    He is insane. And damned proud of it too.

      I believe this tool is an insane sycophant.

      He is also dead wrong on every economic issue he rants about. I believe he’s trying to best both “Rev’s” Sharpton and Jackson a interview whores

    “In its heart, the nation knows it.” So everyone agrees with him, but he won’t allow comments. Huh.

    Not surprised about the Times.

    Just last week a NYT editorial chided anyone who opposes Shariah law in the United States. Years back they ran a story about Shariah compliant finance in U.S. banks.

    As for hijacking memories:


    “100 protesters burn American flag outside U.S. embassy in London during minute’s silence for 9/11”

    I wonder why a bunch of bearded, robed, spitting men are angry.

    I don’t know if London is reflective of the rest of the U.K. but if I lived there I would consider moving before “diversity” leads to any more car bombings or madrassas. Great Britain no more.

    Paul Krugman – poster boy for proving liberalism is a mental disease. A fake journalist accusing conservative leaders of fake heroism after the worst act of terrorism on our soil, and yet he will crow about Barry Bad-ass taking out OBL seemingly by himself and spiking the ball at every opportunity.

  5. BillK says:

    Oddly subdued? Like it should be a party?

    9/11 is about reverent remembrance of those loft, not a drunken bash, something the left just never gets.
