Just as I had finished posting my last post… which… *squints eyes* talked about a surge of visitors, I get this –
Here’s some rad tunes for the occasion
and just because these two are…
I’d party with them, but I imagine my idea as to why 9/11 can be humourous (reason = our ridiculous response of 1. war on terror, 2. surveillance state, 3. revoking of personal / civil liberties) would be different from theirs (I have no fucking idea what theirs is).
If I were dressed as the Iraq war, I’d totally party with them… see if I can get some media coverage, smoke cigars, call it a day.
edit: I should note that the above “humour” is in that a tragedy (9/11) was turned into a HYPER-TRAGEDY (Afghanistan, Iraq war, torture, spying, TSA etc. etc. etc.). We were faced with a crisis and we turned it into a joke. That’s the point I was trying to make.
I am not trying to be needlessly controversial. Rather, I just have strong feelings about the errors in leadership and the media with regard to the years following that day.
