Ward Churchill Types Attempting to Hijack Ground Zero Museum
The blame-America-for-everything crowd is determined to spew their venom on the memorials planned for the victims of the 9/11 attacks. But Debra Burlingame, the sister of one of the pilots who died that day is just as determined to stop them. From WCBS-TV New York:
...she charges that the International Freedom Museum at Ground Zero is being hijacked by people who want to fill it with exhibits that have nothing to with the tragedy and discussions with a blame America political bent.This desecration is absolutely intolerable. Do these creatures have no shame? None at all?
“We’re going to have a mud fight over what freedom means, where we would have politicized by activists who want to come down there and spew their views about what caused 9-11,” says Burlingame.
Among the exhibits reportedly planned are those dealing with abuse at the Abu Ghraib prison abuse scandal in Iraq, the Nazi holocaust, and the Jim Crow lynchings in the south. Burlingame says that they are fine things to teach people about, just not at Ground Zero, which is where so many people died and is regarded as a burial ground.
“Imagine if you will, the U.S. holocaust museum inviting someone to that site to give their views about why killing them was justifiable, understandable or even excusable,” says Burlingame
