WUI (Writing under the influence)

Somebody once said we are all Americans, sometimes born in the wrong places.
On a warm autumn day in 1986, while enjoying beer with my college buddies,
I decided to join my new homeland.

I've come to appreciate the ideals that helped create this great country.
Liberalism, political-correctness, multiculturalism and moral equivalence
are destroying it.

Holocaust deniers

UPDATE: I didn't really want to put it that way but Tom Nichols of NRO did:

Are Canadians Stupid?
It’s not about foreign policy, it’s about who we are. As long as we are a secular, tolerant, open, and free society — and by “we” I mean all of us in the West, including Canada — the terrorists will continue to strike, because everything we are, our very way of life, is repellent to them, and they are going to do everything they can to destroy it completely.

Is that clear enough, or will it finally sink in only when pieces of the Canadian parliament are falling out of the sky in burning flinders?
Many of our neighbors to the north behave as bad as many Muslims:
One in five Canadians believes the attacks on the United States on September 11, 2001, had nothing to do with Osama Bin Laden and were actually a plot by influential Americans, according to a poll released on Monday.

The Ipsos-Reid poll found that 22 percent of Canadians, and 26 percent of young Canadians, agree with the conspiracy theory. The number was the highest, at 32 percent, in Quebec, which has shown the least support for the U.S. war on terror.
But there are many in the US who think the same. Sometime I think they do it because their preconceived notions prevent them from admitting that real evil exits and that no matter what we do, short of submitting to Islam, that evil will want to kill us. There are also those on the left who think that because Gandhi said something about there never having been a situation that couldn't be resolved peacefully -- maybe he was right as long as we always surrender and let ourselves to be killed -- Islamo-fascist are simply responding to something we have done and if we only stopped...

In any case, both the deniers and apologists desecrate the 9/11 victims and are as bad as Holocaust deniers:

Members of the hate-America crowd and jihadist sympathizers occasionally hold forth about the bravery required to pull off the 9-11 attacks. As Bill Maher infamously said about crashing planes into buildings, "Say what you want about it, it's not cowardly."

What the peddlers of such tripe are really saying is that Rodney Dickens, Asia Cottom and Bernard Brown are merely props. Their families are dupes or liars, as are the hundreds of witnesses who saw Flight 77 bear down on the Pentagon. And, by the way, the U.S. government, not Islamic extremism, is the real enemy.

If that is bravery, then the callous child murderers of Hitler's SS were among the most heroic figures in human history.

Such sentiments repulse decent human beings because they minimize crimes that transcend politics or ideology. To absolve the killers, much less to justify or glorify their actions, is to defile their victims again.

There's another way to vindicate the terrorists and desecrate their victims -- by promoting outlandish conspiracy theories about 9-11. Of the many perversions about controlled demolitions, military pods and blacked-out windows, the one that has garnered the greatest number of maladjusted adherents is that a U.S. military missile -- not a Boeing 757 passenger plane -- struck the Pentagon.

What the peddlers of such tripe are really saying is that Rodney Dickens, Asia Cottom and Bernard Brown are merely props. Their families are dupes or liars, as are the hundreds of witnesses who saw Flight 77 bear down on the Pentagon. And, by the way, the U.S. government, not Islamic extremism, is the real enemy.

Science can't penetrate the small minds that cultivate such irrational beliefs. For the rest of us, the new book "Debunking 9/11 Myths: Why Conspiracy Theories Can't Stand Up To The Facts" systematically dismantles all the conspiratorial nonsense.
