Liberal Paul Krugman: Bush and Giuliani Are “Fake Heroes” Who “Cashed In” on 9-11 Horror …Update: The NY Times Pulls the Post(?) …Update: Nope, Still There

You have to admit, the title of his blog is perfect…
“The Conscience of a Liberal”

Today the New York Times “economist” and far left Keynesian, Paul Krugman, remembered 9-11 by attacking George Bush and Rudy Giuliani.

“Te(sp) atrocity should have been a unifying event, but instead it became a wedge issue. Fake heroes like Bernie Kerik, Rudy Giuliani, and, yes, George W. Bush raced to cash in on the horror.”

Spoken like a true liberal.
(I posted a screen grab of the article in case it disappears.)

Brilliant. Krugman, the supposed liberal intellectual, calls for unity while viciously attacking conservatives. Really smart, Paul.

UPDATE: The NY Times has pulled the post. At least, it is no longer on Krugman’s home page.

UPDATE: Nope. The disgusting post is back up on his webpage.

    maybe the A$$wipe should go live in the mideast with the stinky mooslums and see how much better it fits his ways of thinking

  • Chris M-G

    The reason is indeed obvious- he doesn’t want people correcting his warped vision of reality.

  • Rose

    Really SHOCKING that the Times pulled the story! Who do they think they are catering to?

  • jony101

    his conscience is getting to him and he is blabbing nonsense again to make himself feel better about himself. He needs quiet time with dr.phil so they can uncover his mental illness and treat it with medication. But the first step is admitting he has a problem and he admitted that by stating he is a “liberal”.

  • jorgen

    and real heroes like Krugman panicked and began pacifying the islamists.

  • Tom Shaughnessy

    The krugman piece is not pulled. It may be found at the link …

  • EVERYTHING is politics to a Liberal. Their politics fills the void created when they banished religion from their lives, thus everything must and will be politicized. Such vile creatures they are.

  • Dave in Houston

    Liberals have a conscience? Who knew?

    Fine creepy guy the Slimes has there. Even its low decency and taste level was offended by this.

    Please do not tell me this was an actual post. Please let me this was from the Onion. Because I am getting very angry at the NYT and this fking a$$clown.

    and Thank You Gateway Pundit for capturing the title, etc, without websites like this, well we all know liberal lefties ABC, NBC, CBS would all cover for their liberal lunatic friends.

    The post has NOT been pulled as of 10:02 EDT. It’s now the second one down. What an evil hateful little man. All Americans that supported and fought for the sincere views of those he mentioned (no matter how perfect or imperfect in hindsight) cashed in on 9/11 too by the logic of this scumbag. Burn in hell.

  • It was people like him and his blind hatred for all things conservative that made it a wedge issue. He is the one that rejected the calls of unity, deriding them as jingoism and banal patriotism, all due to his liberal intoxication. The man is a fool.

  • mg4us

    Disgusting. . . from the impotent idiot who believes aliens will attack earth over global warming

    FIRE Krugman!

    Until then, BOYCOTT the NYT and any sponsor of theirs. . .

    Call their advertisers and complain. . .

  • John Fembup

    Based on his published opinions–not just this article, but so many others–I think in Paul Krugman’s case the words “liberal” and “conscience” should never appear in the same sentence.

    Krugman is no worse, nor any better than he ever is.
    How upsetting it must be to go through one’s life knowing that
    you will be blithely wrong on every issue and on the wrong side of every event.
    A fool and knave always. Forever. How daunting to be forever the miserable Junior High School sophist; the geek without any useful talent. A shorted figure of wild eyed dirision by genuine people. Paul Krugman is the “Sad Sack” in the Fractured Fairy Tales
    following the parade with a broom and dust pan; looking for Unicorn dropings to justify an otherwise worthless like.

  • I turned on my tv this morning and was greeted by an image of someone jumping from a burning skyscraper. You could see the terror and fear on his face. I think it was on Nat Geo channel or something. Subdued my ass, Mr. Nobel “Keynes” Krugman. Take a flying leap from a skyscraper and I might listen to you on the way down. You, your ideas and your “conscience” can all go to Hell where they belong. And God Bless the rest of us, (I know that’ll piss him off too!)

  • LaTX

  • mg4us

    Bush and Giuliani stepped up and LED in a time of chaos & confussion. . . they gave hope and acted responsibly

    Unfortunately there are so-called Americans that don’t think of 9-11 the way many of us do.
    How many of us remember what President Bush signed into an Executive Order?

    Yes shame on me for not remembering or knowing that President Bush signed this into an Executive Order

    Shame on ALL of us for not remembering or knowing

    And Shame on the Media – – MSM and others for not remembering or reminding us.

    I hope President Bush does so today in his talk at Groiund Zero. .
    Remind us that 9-11 is a Day of Prayer & Remembrance. .
    even though others (Bloomberg & Obama) ban clergy & religious leaders from the event

    or some (Obama) have the AUDACITY, not of Hope, just AUDACITY to call this a Day of Community Service rather than honor, remember and pray for those who died needlessly that day and those who died and were injured helping others.

    This is why a special HOLI-day is needed. . .
    one where Federal and many businesses are closed for the day. . .
    one where School is closed for the day. . .
    one where ALL can take time to reflect and be with family, loved ones & friends.

    Since Labor day is so close. . .let’s drop Labor Day and establish
    9-11 as THE official government holiday.

    Call your Congressman and request this.

    9-11. . . We will NEVER Forget!

    I just checked the NYTimes link, and they have NOT pulled Krugman’s rant.

  • a former dem


    I say this as a recovering liberal, I say let Krugman and the NYT spew their hate for America and Americans…. the moderate, conservative dems have fled the party, lunatics like Krugman, CBC, could hide behind the somewhat sane centerist dems in the past, now that they have fled, what we are seeing now the full exposure of america-hating lunancy on display.

    I speak as a former dem, I for one had no idea the derangement of some of these folks — until 2008, and its gotten worse since then, I say let them keep speaking, spewing out their nonsense, their hate, when such items are on full display with nothing to hide behind, you will see more and more people wake up, they won’t say it out loud, but in their minds they will start seperating the lunatics from having influence in their thought process.

  • Multitude

    Krugman is unhinged and unwell, also reflective of the contemporary Progressive mind.

    On December 30 2008, Krugman wrote in the same New York Times blog “The Con-science of a Liberal” that in reaction to Hurricane Katrina, Bush was disconnected. He claims that the reason Bush was seen to be disconnected and bungling was because he was indeed detached, not engaged sufficiently on Katrina, and not on Afghanistan. Bush did not make a big enough issue out of these two events.

    So now Bush’s 9/11 response is “too much” spectacle? And as measured by whom, some faux economist hack who had to carve out a niche writing propaganda for the illiterate masses because he couldn’t fool the real professionals? Conning Economic Science, indeed.

  • MDd

    The Conscience of a Liberal is a very dark place to even contemplate, much less visit. Conscience is our inner mechanism for determining right from wrong, or more aptly, Right from Left. Liberalism really is a mental illness.

    You are free to move to many, many other countries. Why do you continue to live in one that you dislike so much? Wouldn’t you be a lot more content somewhere else? I know that the rest of us would be a lot happier if you would move. Please go. Really, you’ll be much happier where you aren’t tormented like you are here. I suggest North Korea. There’s absolutely nothing to complain about there. Just ask anyone when you get there, whether it be an ordinary citizen or someone in the government.

  • Dave

    Still there.

    And still a massive disrespect for the American public and for his employer as well.

    What a despicable human being, complete and utter scum.

  • He’s right despite himself: there were people who turned this into a wedge issue, there are people who were shameful, and we did have ten years of shame and horror because of guys just like Krugman who spent their every waking moment trying to betray the soldiers in the field, undermine America, embolden and increase morale in our enemies, and weaken the very liberties that he takes advantage of every day. The actions and statements of the left for the last 6-10 years were utterly shameful, inexcusable, and reprehensible.

    As Orwell would put it: they were objectively on the side of our enemies.

  • Bubba

    What a sick depraved menatlly ill sad sack specimen this little man, is. Absolutely poisoned by the liberal mindset. Of course he won’t (this post will probably earn him a special Pulitzer Prize), but this a**hole should be fired immediately. It’s scum like this that are going to make watching Barry crash and burn in 2012 and pull the entire dem party down the toilet with him. Reap it, you freak loser, Krugman.

    He’s probably bitter because no one is saying that the obscure back bencher state senator Barak Hussein Obama acted heroically. “Come on…why are we not reporting on Obama’s stoic words on 9-11??? Why do we only get endless soundbytes from the grand stander Bush???”

    Sit and spin, Krugman, you gutter trash filth.

  • RedBeard

    #32: Precisely right. Typical behavior for a craven leftist. Hide behind the keyboard while typing filthy comments, then hide some more out of fear of return comments. What a small man Krugman is. A microbial piece of human debris.

  • kansas

    I really admire the posters above me, because I cannot think of one word to describe Krugman that would pass a nasty word filter. Although I did see where a rat attacked a woman on the NY Subway. I wonder if Krugman has an alibi.

  • L. E. Liesner

    This babbling fool only lends more credence to the theory that liberalism is a mental disease. You can see that this “we will never forget 9/11/01” is only talk, these liberals have already forgot that this was an act of war. They blame our country for everything that goes wrong in the world, even if it happens to us. American Exceptional-ism has become a dirty word and a Muslin terrorist act of aggression has become an act of honor to these ingrate liberals. Only liberals could believe that “community service” will soothe the pain that the terrorist inflicted upon our country. “Vengeance is mine” saith the Lord, and our job is to get these terrorist up before Him so he can administer that vengeance.

    I think John Stuart Mill had Krugman in mind when he wrote,

    “War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.”

  • Patty

    I believe there couldn’t have been another president other than Bush during this horrible time in history.

    He was ready to serve and protect America when he took office. The disrespect of a nation by some for him was evident during his last years in office. Now, there are some who just want the evil to keep rearing its ugly head.

    This is another liberal writer’s point of view but it is put in an entirely different way:

    The treatment President Bush has received from this country is nothing less than a disgrace. The attacks launched against him have been cruel and slanderous, proving to the world what little character and resolve we have. The president is not to blame for all these problems. He never lost faith in America or her people, and has tried his hardest to continue leading our nation during a very difficult time.

    Our failure to stand by the one person who continued to stand by us has not gone unnoticed by our enemies. It has shown to the world how disloyal we can be when our president needed loyalty — a shameful display of arrogance and weakness that will haunt this nation long after Mr. Bush has left the White House.

    Krugman’s view is precisely why Leftists trotted out Paul Simon to sneer his paean to nihilism at Ground Zero this morning;

    Did Krugman ever scold the Dems who said it was too bad that 9/11 hadn’t happened under Clinton so that Billy-boy could have a chance to be heroic? (after his flaccid response to the previous terror attacks).

    Did he scold the Dems who cynically exploited the Tucson massacre in an effort to silence everyone who disagreed with them? Or Clinton, when he exploited the OKC bombing to attack his critics? Or the European leftists and Muzzies who are exploiting the Norway massacre to silence critics of multiculti pro-Islam policies?

  • Patty

    We must keep on hitting the liberal like Krugman with the facts and not with another hateful attack. They thrive on this hate. They love to see reactions on the right.

    If Krugman wanted to get his liberal thoughts out in a manner that wasn’t worded so inappropriate then maybe he wouldn’t have had it pulled from NY times.

    Very surprised too they pulled it, thanks, someone has some respect.

I can’t wait for 2012 when we can reserve for the Progressive Movement that special place in hell they so richly deserve.

    The New York Times is supposed to be the premier liberal paper in the country. Yet the best it can offer on its opinion pages is Krugman, Dowd, Friedman, Rich, etc.? Certainly there must be a few liberals who are not as shallow and mean-spirited as this gang of losers.

    I believe Daniel Henninger had it right: The liberals have never been able to get over the election of 2000.

    This resentment seems to have deranged the liberal mind so that it can no longer apprehend the events of the real world without succumbing to a compulsion to twist them into fiction that always casts George W. Bush as the villain.

    The accusation that Bush “cashed in” doesn’t even have any facts behind it. But I do know the name of one subprime blowhard, who with his wife, has been cashing in for years, and will cash in even more when he gets someone to write that third memoir about his “historic” presidency.

    Keep kissing that black ass, Krugman. Maybe he’ll hire you to write that novel.

  • Freddy

    Krugman is a liar.

    He needs to be asked to defend his lies every time he speaks, or writes. He needs to be reminded of his lies every day until he finally leaves the public forum.

  • rbosque



  • mark l.

    one other side note…
    his blog forum is called “the conscience of a liberal”.
    how appropriate.
    considering more than 1/3 of dem primary voters believed in a 9/11 conspiracy, and were bouyed by the liberal darling, howard dean:

    “The most interesting theory that I’ve heard so far – which is nothing more than a theory, it can’t be proved – is that he was warned ahead of time by the Saudis,” Dean told a caller to Washington, D.C’s “Diane Rehm Show,” according to a transcript obtained by Opinion”

    my one question for krugman:
    at what in your mind did you come to terms with the fact that 9/11 was NOT a conspiracy?

    krugman’s vitriol didn’t just spring up from his bitterness and jealousy about the massive rejection/embarrassment of keynsian theory to a ‘different’ crisis…
    he is sitting on something special, exclusively defined by 9/11 and his hatred of republicans.

    he tipped his hand, today.

  • President Potemkin

    Let this @$$hat keep writing his drivel for the NYT. As despicable as his words are, they are a reminder why I am no longer a democrat.

  • Patty

    No surprise here: hack columnist Paul Krugman is among the first to seek political advantage from mass murder:

    We don’t have proof yet that this was political, but the odds are that it was.

    Really? Based on what?

    She’s been the target of violence before. And for those wondering why a Blue Dog Democrat, the kind Republicans might be able to work with, might be a target, the answer is that she’s a Democrat who survived what was otherwise a GOP sweep in Arizona, precisely because the Republicans nominated a Tea Party activist. (Her father says that “the whole Tea Party” was her enemy.) And yes, she was on Sarah Palin’s infamous “crosshairs” list.

    You do know that anything that is bad and happens under Obama, Krugman is the indicator many of the left jumping off ground.

  • jainphx

    The left, in Obama, got everything they have always wanted and hoped for, couple that with a filibuster safe senate and huge majority in the house. Funny thing though is everything they always dreamed of was passed and “IT DIDN’T WORK” on the contrary it was and is a complete bust. Watching your whole life’s work go up in flames, would tend to drive the weak minded insane, especially when your opposition told you what would happen.

    Krugman has gone around the bend, and is now lashing out, he needs help, and fast before he hurts his self.

    Within hours after Jared Loughner’s killing spree, New York Times columnist Paul Krugman went straight for the gutter, proclaiming, with no evidence whatsoever, that Loughner’s act was in all likelihood “political,” and going on to blame Republicans for the murders.


    This is his style and it is one of the many reasons that liberals like him cannot be trusted.

    He is on of the many No journalists that have tried but not succeed to take down the Republic party. This was so evident during the Bush years. Well, we have changed and many independent and democrats have wised up.

    And yes, NY times should pull it. But they should also make darn sure that there are facts to back up these nonfactual articles. Lawsuits should be filed every time they publish this crap.

    Andrew, what is the truth?

    The truth is whatever you want it to be, whatever you want to believe in. The truth is fluid, always in motion.

    Fact, however, is that Krugman is strangely silent about Obama trying to use 9-11 to push his “national service day” crap (which reminds me a lot of the stuff Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia did all the time.) No, he just fires at Bush & Co. How strange. Must be a coincidence… oh wait… he’s a liberal. Sorry, no coincidence there.

    Also love how his “blog” is called “conscience of a liberal”, as if liberals have something like that. The hypocricy of guys like him is amazing. He’s one of the guys who would whine at the shootings in Norway, and cheer on the 16,000 babies who are murdered in the same country every year. Yep, his ilk cries over 80 dead kids who were shot, but smile at 16,000 kids who get “aborted” every year.

    Conscience, yeah, right.

    He’s a lunatic selling his nonsense as fact. And too many people believe it. The idiot believes the UK will be unscathed by a Euro crash. Hey Krugman, read the Lisbon Treaty. When the Euro goes down, we all go down, the UK included. They can’t escape. They just don’t have the Euro, but they’re still screwed.

  • FurryGuy

    Krugman’s rant is still on his NYTimes’ “homepage, just not so obvious because it is not the first item on the list. His The Spanish Prisoner blather (ooh! look at the pretty graphs!) is more than sufficiently long enough to push The Years of Shame into scroll down territory.

  • Nancy

    Have you ever looked at this man’s eyes? They aren’t sane.

    Krugman is the poster boy for the Left — cowardly, angry and vicious. He wouldn’t know courage if he tripped over it. He is nothing but a pathetic little man who has nothing left but anger and a forum produced by others like him from which to spew his hate.

  • The deal is that real men that have to make ‘gutsy’ calls, like Bush and Guilliani did, expose effeminate little self-important males like Krugman as being exactly what they are – cowards. Why do you think he hid behind his comment ban on the article?

  • donh

    Cashing in ? We all saw the King of Saudi Arabia hand Rudy a check and Rudy refused to take it. This coward won’t even allow comments to his offensive work. Krugman has become the Dr. Strangelove of self loathing liberals. He will be shaming our war on terror all the way to doomsday….

  • LJ

    As usual, Krugman is spot on. The only thing to be proud of are the brave responders who acted out of human compassion, at great personal risk. That display of heart and humanity is what we should be proud of, not the political or nationalistic agenda 9/11 is now chained to .

    9/11, however, cannot be divorced from the misguided over-reaction that has been the last 10 years of war, a war that produces a 9/11-level of casualties very 3 weeks for Iraqis. That’s nothing to be proud of, and a chilling reminder that our over-reaction has not brought more freedom, only more death and terror.

    America is a great nation in a very tough spot, but we are badly misled and our resources are being squandered (as in $10b/mo). Those with heart and human compassion that saw their fellow New Yorkers in great danger and responded without regard for their own lives would be ashamed for what has been done in our name, and we should be as well.

    Those who died at the WTC on that day are in no way honored by the violence and hate that has erupted since. Krugman is correct again.

  • Molon Labe

    Krugman is representative of his class, generation, and peers. I am so content to live far from the lefty enclave that is NYC. Whenever someone says we’re all Americans, remember that people like this walk among us. They are not Americans. They are communists. Worse they are evil.

    As usual, there is no human being (except maybe our president) who is so consistantly dead wrong as Krugman. I think it would be fair to label him a fake economist, since he writes to an agenda, not the truth or any kind of science. He is a simply a clown and every day more and more people are recognizing that which gives me hope for the country.

    The Lefts ability to fight for their Liberal agenda, while unwilling to fight for Americas freedoms tells me all I need to know about them. None of it positive. They will always find a way to criticize patriotism, flag, country, or any unity that supports Americas believe in herself. They are no more than jackals that try and steel the reward of others skill as hunters. They are as much a danger to America as any armed enemy we have faced, and should be dealt with accordingly.

    If Al Gore had won the presidency in 2000, would the world be…?

    And now this month’s fantasy hypothetical question. Twenty-five percent of Americans think the world would be a better place if Al Gore had won the 2000 presidential election and 16 percent think it would be a worse place. Predictably, the former group had more Democrats and the latter more Republicans (surprise!). The majority of Americans (56 percent) led by Independents did not think that the world would be very different at all. Based on the current activities (or lack thereof) occurring in our nation’s capitol the majority has it.

    Revisionists of 9/11 history fail and fail miserably for the truth is it is impossible to micro manage human emotion.

    Mayors and presidents can issue officialdom’s never-ending proclamations and decrees. They can ban clerics and first responders from the 10th anniversary of the worst terrorist attack on American soil.

    They can send out “speaking points” to which all politicians will dutifully follow; they can even ban the words “al Qaeda” and “jihad” from being spoken.

    I defy Krugman to rewrite this or our nation’s history. The liberals will try but they will never succeed and Americans will never forget the real truth of that day and how it will forever be in our memories without Krugman insults. He takes pleasure in his hate and anger. And he will never take away with lies.

    We should look upon Krugman’s hateful words as a precious gift.

    Have you ever gotten the feeling that Obama goes to great lengths to craft his words to conceal what he is actually thinking? This is because Obama, and many other Democratic leaders, think exactly like Krugman. They, however, unlike Krugman, employ hypocritical decency in order not to inflame people with their utter contempt for anything but uber-liberal doctrine.

    We should be immensely thankful for Krugman because he is taking what all the other Democratic leaders are actually thinking and putting it into words we can all easily understand.

    As was mentioned above, after the elections of 2008, when the Democrats had complete control of both houses of Congress and the Whitehouse, they were able to take their utopian liberal dreams and put them into place though laws and policies unencumbered by any conservative (bipartisan) interference. They had the perfect opportunity to follow Krugman’s advice to the letter. Yet, in doing so they created the worst economic conditions this nation has ever suffered since its founding. The moral of the story should be clear – extreme liberals have no business governing America because their philosophy is born of hate and resentment for people of accomplishment.

    The NYT has given us a great gift in publishing this man’s thoughts. He not only speaks for many Democratic leaders, he truly represents many in New York City, the epicenter of uber liberal thought.

    BTW – Under Krugman’s logic, when “fake heroes” like Clinton and Gore made speeches after Columbine, they too were just cashing in on the tragedy, is that right? Did he say that at the time?

  • RedBeard

    As others have indicated, there can be a vast chasm between schooling and education, and between IQ and wisdom. I’m sure Krugman was schooled extensively, and scores high on a standardized IQ test, but he lacks the real-world education and wisdom that should be parts of any mature adult’s mind.

    Krugman is basically an idiot savant; some of his economic theories are brilliant, worthy of the Nobel. But the man probably can’t compute the change from a dollar bill when buying a pack of gum, and most likely needs a handler to help him get his shoes on the right feet in the morning.

    I think it’s obvious what this says about those who choose to employ such a defective man as an opinion columnist.

    9/11, Bush, and the Ongoing threat of Radical Islam

    When we think about 9/11, we honor those who risked their lives, we
    watch the 9/11 video footage of the World Trade Center collapse, and
    we remember President Bush’s public address. On 9/11, Bush said that
    through the Pentagon and World Trade Center attack, the 9/11 terrorists,
    “can shake the foundations of our biggest buildings, but they cannot
    touch the foundation of America.”

    Ten years after the 9/11 World Trade Center attack, the threat of Radical
    Islam is as great as ever. It is crucial to stay informed about this threat
    so that the words said on 9/11 by Bush hold true – “they cannot touch
    the foundation of America.”

The station kept cutting off the reading of the names of the 9-11 victims to go back to the hosts babbling. But, the high point had to be when Christiane Amanpour started to talk about how the Middle Easterns have picked up the ideals of human rights and liberty, resulting in the Islamic Spring. At that point, I just switched to Fox.

    #152 Rock commented:

    “In truth watching just reaffirmed my believe that Islam must be driven from our land, …”

    This is absolutely correct. We should come to terms with the fact that Islam is not simply a religion. Islam is a complete totalitarian system wherein religion, law, culture and governance are all woven together. And yet, here in America we foolishly embrace the incoming waves of Islamic immigrants as though they will adopt the same love for this country that we saw in the great waves on immigration in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. Let me tell you something. The followers of Islam who have come here will NEVER, EVER follow the path taken by the waves of European immigrants who came here and assimilated because they loved this country. The Islamic people who are coming here have no such intentions. We need to wake up and stop the madness of allowing these people to come here and practice their conquest under the guise of merely “practicing religious freedom”.

    We need to realize that the paradigm has completely changed. The problem is that they changed first and we have not yet fully come to understand what we are up against. When America was founded, it was inconceivable that any foe would be so zealous in his actions or so deceitful as to physically place himself in our midst only to kill himself (and many of us) by detonating the dynamite belt he is wearing as a weapon of warfare. Our entire legal system is thus based upon premises that are no longer valid. We are still operating as though enemies in warfare wear uniforms and declare their intentions up front through a declaration of war! This is preposterous!

    We have little comprehension of how Islam has changed the rules of warfare. We have no idea how the followers of Islam are using American freedom to obliterate American freedom. By allowing these people to migrate to America under the guise of religious freedom, we are allowing an insidious enemy to freely occupy our land. How is it that so many of us still cling to the false notion that all religious people are pious, humble and worthy of American citizenship? Can we not see the truth before our very eyes that we are dealing with people who are capitalizing on our good nature to do us in? Those of Islam follow the new paradigm, where deceit and human sacrifice are the norm, while we still believe that by being open and welcoming, we are people of virtue.

    Until we understand the new paradigm, we will continue to suffer incalculable losses such as 9/11. We need to adapt to the new paradigm and realize that just as we limit freedom of speech to disallow yelling “fire!” in a movie theatre, we must also limit the freedom of foreigners to come here to take over America by putting forth their façade of religious piousness. Behind that façade is nothing but evil intent. We are thus naïve. They are cleverly taking advantage of our naïveté and a legal system that was meant to deal with foes of 200 years ago.

    America is a Judeo/Christian nation and if we do not protect that culture, we will lose our entire nation. We need to STOP the immigration of people from Islamic countries to America.

  • Bert Duckwall

    This week’s attempt at journalistic trash was provided by one of the country’s most narcissistic contributors; Paul Krugman. My understanding is Krugman is a disciple of John Maynard Kenyes economic theory that dominated the US and other nations for three decades that posited real strength and stability in the economic sphere of human institutions was a strong guiding force of government. This has proven to be a very flawed theory yet still has its ardent supporters in witless adherents such as Krugman. Now, this ridiculous contributor of theoretical drivel declares that President Bush and Mayor Guiliani are somehow disaster profiteers. Krugman, who has never defended anything beyond his simple-minded theories, attacks the two leaders that needed to be at ground zero to assure the citizens we may bend but America will not break. For ten years under 4 city administrations and 2 opposing federal administrations been free from terrorist attacks although we have had numerous feeble terrorist attempts. On a day we commemorate the deaths of nearly 3000 Americans along with over 400 firefighters and police we have to read Paul Krugman’s cowardly column of non-sense. The New York Times first should never have given Krugman’s silly assessment a forum for discussion, and secondly should fire him for terminal insensitivity.

Instead, every slimeball conservative/conservative-wannbe/sympathizer/teabag moron is jumping on his case. Sounds like he hit a nerve. And if anyone of these so-called Patriots had an I.Q. over 70, they’d realize that he isn’t dissing the tragedy itself i.e. “… the atrocity should have been a unifying event” but the very people who cashed in on it, who have obviously been lifted to the level of “Super Patriot” or “G-d” and whose motives cannot therefore be questioned. You people of small mind and smaller intellect have removed serious dissension from the public realm and replaced it with the bullying immature antics of the middle school playground. For shame!
