Never Forgive, Never Forget [Updated Below]

11 September 2010 @ 08:46

— 11 SEPTEMBER 2001 A.D. —

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle;
be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray.
And do thou, O prince of the heavenly host,
by the power of God
thrust into hell Satan and all the evil spirits
who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.


UPDATE at 1555-1713…

-The Reaganite Republican has put together a top-notch aggregation of posts on 09-11.  Thanks, RR.

-Pundette has a very good round-up that recalls the brave United 93 Stewardess Sandy Bradshaw, links Rick Rescorla’s wife, and quotes from and links to what a whole host of commentators have said over at the new RightNetwork.  One of those is Victor Davis Hanson, who recalls his 09-11 and what he was thinking that day and over the nest few days:

My only surprise was not the panic of the media as it forecast hourly probable new attacks, or warned us that we had little recourse for direct retaliation—but its uncertainty about culpability, as too many pundits on screen pondered why Bin Laden had “lashed out.” For some reason I remembered at the time a line from Dirty Harry. It seemed as likely an answer as their pop philosophizing—“because he likes it.”

For that first year, I had not followed George Bush’s presidency closely, and knew little of him or of his prior tenure in Texas. But three days later when he stood at Ground Zero, put his arm around that noble-looking retired fireman Bob Beckwith, grabbed a bullhorn, and extemporaneously announced to the crowd, “I can hear you, the rest of the world hears you, and the people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon,” I thought, ‘I’m relieved this guy, at this moment, is president.’ And through all the tragedy of the next nine years, I am still.

-Here is the tribute to Rick Rescorla I wrote last year.  He should not be forgotten.  Deus sileo suus animus.

-Stacy McCain has posted the seventy-minute documentary The Falling Man and aggregated some damn fine links.  In one Update, he shows the difference between those who get it and those who are moral traitors to The United States:

Two very different headlines today:

Muslim Prayer Room Was Part of Life at Twin Towers
— New York Times

One block between Ground Zero mosque and human remains
– New York Post

-Over at WyBlog, Chris is as simple as he is eloquent.

-Over at Three Beers Later, Richard contrasts the CinC on 11 September 2001 with the one on 11 September 2010 [hint: one of ’em comes out looking like a fool].

-The Mind Numbed Robot remembers.

-Donald Douglas, who is in New York, will be attending the 9-11 Rally Of Remembrance, so please keep checking over at his place for updates and pictures.

-Van Helsing has posted a disturbing but must-see and must-send-to-everyone-you-know video, over at Moonbattery.

-Over at Piece Of Work In Progress, Kill Truck remembers how 09-11 woke her up from a blind slumber.

-Teresa, mistress of Teresamerica, recalls that day from her perspective and posts some wonderful videos.

-Profiles of those who were murdered on 09-11 thankfully provided by: iOwnTheWorld, William Teach of The Pirate’s Cove, Obi’s Sister, KC Duffy at Pixie Place II [she also has posted the famous Alan Jackson song].

-Over at Carol’s Closet, Carol is righteously and justifiably defiant.  Bravo!

-So is Stogie over at Saberpoint.

-Silverfiddle gives us some defiance Courtesy Of The Red, White, And Blue.  Thanks, Silver, I need that.

-Dave C has The Navy Remembers.

-Over at Gateway Pundit, Jim Hoft has posted George Bush’s bullhorn speech [quite a contrast with the Nancy-Boy-In-Chief, eh?] and on the Left’s attempt to unremember 09-11 —God, how I hate those weasely traitorous bastards.

-Stormbringer helpfully lists the domestic terrorist attacks we have suffered at the hands of the Mohammedins and their near-misses, as well.  Very useful, thanks.  Nine years on and so many refuse to take their death blinders off.

-Over at The Sundries Shack, Jimmie Bise offers some wisdom and reminds America that it should have listened to Mark Steyn as he cried out in the wilderness nine years ago.

-Over at the Friendly Tavern, Buzz Banister has posted a video of a very young girl reciting a prayer.

-The Old Man Eloquent of The Blogosphere, Paco offers a wonderful prayer that he composed.

-If I haven’t linked you directly here, chances are it is because you are mentioned in one of the aggregation postings above. If that is not the case, please feel free to leave a link in the Comments Section, which I encourage all of you to take a gander at – there’s good stuff a-happening there.

-As for my thoughts on this Ninth Anniversary of the ‘unprovoked and dastardly attack’ on The United States…

    Bob, we will never forgive or forget.

    This is an ongoing battle, and it’s wise to pray to God and invoke St. Michael to protect us against the wicked devils who seek to destroy us.
    God Bless.

    From your lips to God’s ears Bob. Amen.

  3. 11 September 2010 @ 10:13 10:13

    AMEN. We must never forget 9/11 and yet somehow there are people who have forgotten 9/11 today and believe that day shouldn’t have changed our lives. It did. These people need to wake up and stop burying their head in the sand. God rest all those souls who died that tragic day. God Bless our troops who are serving overseas. God Bless the USA!

    Good thing I wasn’t President on 9/12–what was left of Mecca would still be radioactive nine years later.

    Never Forget, Never Surrender as neither is an option.

  7. 11 September 2010 @ 12:45 12:45

    Amen Bob. And ditto John Doe.

    This evil will only get stronger unless we see to it otherwise.

    No Retreat – No Surrender.

    Evil feeds off the weaknesses of the good.

  10. 11 September 2010 @ 14:26 14:26

    “Evil feeds off the weaknesses of the good.” Absolutely Bob.

    And, yet we have those who are appeasing our enemies out there in the hopes of not offending them. This kind of crap thinking has got to stop.

  11. 11 September 2010 @ 21:49 21:49

    Thank-you Bob!

    If the masses are never going to forget, it will be Conservatives who keep the truth moving. Looking around the Liberal blogs deemed “most powerful,” and “most popular,” I see very, very few articles on 9/11 – and among the few, very few are a tribute, similar to what we see on Conservative blogs. Great round-up. I plan to keep visiting these posts all throughout the year. They are all worthy. God bless the U.S.A.

    Everyone take a stroll over to Weasel Zippers for a nice series of posts on how American Leftists and worldwide Muslims are celebrating the anniversary of 9-11. Each of these made me progressively more angry, until the point where my eyeballs friggin popped out of my friggin head and I had to stop reading. (Here are the headlines, go to the site to read them, I’m too pissed off to make links, and also I now have no eyeballs)

    Michael Moore Says Don’t Build Victory Mosque Near Ground Zero, Build It On Ground Zero…

    Jesse Jackson: “Unsound” to Link Islam With 9/11, “It’s Morally Right to Let Islamists Build a Mosque Next to Ground Zero”…

    British Islamists Mark 9/11 by Burning American Flags…

    Muslims Burn Effigy of Florida Pastor in Kabul Dearborn, Michigan…

    In Keeping With Solemn Mood of The 9/11 Occasion – Pro Mosque Crowd Ring Bells, Bang Drums and Chant.

    zazazazza is right, it has nothing to do with Islam or whatever you call this. You have lots of video on internet proving that it was inside job, you’re all brainwashed by the mass media, please open your eyes !
