Disgusting: Famous Pic Almost Held Out of 9/11 Museum Because It Was Too Pro-American

CaptureHey libs, you do realize that we actually live in America, correct?

To paraphrase the rotund Chris Christie – there is this strain of anti-Americanism amongst the politically correct left that is quite frankly dangerous.

Via the New York Post:

This iconic picture of firefighters raising the stars and stripes in the rubble of Ground Zero was nearly excluded from the 9/11 Memorial Museum — because it was “rah-rah” American, a new book says.

Michael Shulan, the museum’s creative director, was among staffers who considered the Tom Franklin photograph too kitschy and “rah-rah America,” according to “Battle for Ground Zero” (St. Martin’s Press) by Elizabeth Greenspan, out next month.

“I really believe that the way America will look best, the way we can really do best, is to not be Americans so vigilantly and so vehemently,” Shulan said.

You heard that correctly, being too “rah-rah American” – in America – is now a bad thing.

Refresher – Here is one famous “rah-rah American” moment in the aftermath of the attacks on 9/11, widely seen as one of the greatest patriotic rallying cries after the attack:

That was probably the last time liberals, independents, and conservatives all stood on solid ground in feeling patriotism toward this country.

Guess what?  It wasn’t a bad thing.
