The Wind Chimes of Capitulation...

I didn't comment on the crescent-shaped winning design for a Flight 93 memorial. But I just noticed this, by Michelle Malkin."
Memorial architect Paul Murdoch, whose firm emphasizes "environmental responsibility and sustainability," did not return calls and e-mails seeking comment, but he did emphasize to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that his creation was about "healing" and "contemplation." He is also proud of his idea to hang a bunch of wind chimes in a tall tower at the site as a "gesture of healing and bonding."
Let me guess. Let. Me. Just. Guess. Who needs "healing?" Could it be Islamo-fascist terrorists who murder thousands of innocent civilians? Taliban who kill people for crimes like listening to music or flying kites? Saudi religious police who let little girls burn to death because it would be immodest to run out from their school? People who think gays should be executed by toppling walls onto them? Ba'athists who throw hundreds of thousands of victims into mass graves? Hmmm?

Well, the list could go on and on. But YOU KNOW, and I KNOW, that the wind-chime crowd is not thinking along those lines. Who's sick? Who needs "healing?" I do. You do. AMERICA does. Nasty icky horrid America, that voted for George W. Bush, and thinks people who attack our country should be fought and destroyed.

I'm not even going to speculate what "bonding" is supposed to mean. I already feel like going out and beating up an architect... Posted by John Weidner at September 14, 2005 3:19 PM
