Freedom defeated

News & Politics

An attempt to include a freedom museum at Ground Zero "to ensure that the 9/11 institutions 'stood the test of time' and were put into a broader context" was recently defeated by some outspoken 9/11 families and first-responders. With the help of some high-profile conservatives, that is.

It was also opposed by Hillary Clinton, for whom all bandwagons are created equal.

But the truth is, as well-intentioned as the International Freedom Museum may have been, the planners, like all too many progressives, liberals and Dems, didn't really get half the game. Bringing your message to the people.

Telling 9/11 families that the axial event in their lives may not stand the test of time or that their portion of the memorial would be the heart and that this museum would be the brain, is a remarkably stupid way to frame a remarkably complex and necessary monument.
