Elitist buffoons silenced by their own actions versus patriots silenced by an opposition media
Portions of a commentary by Miranda Devine at the New York Post illustrate the divide between socialists and conservatives.
On the 20th anniversary of 9/11 Saturday night, former Mayor Rudy Giuliani, his NYPD commissioner of the day, Bernie Kerik, members of SEAL Team Six which killed Bin Laden, and other veterans of the war on terror gathered at Cipriani Wall Street for a night of bittersweet memories.
There were tributes to the fallen and a celebration of the “largest evacuation” in US history, with 25,000 people saved from the Twin Towers, thanks to the selfless courage of the first responders.
Giuliani praised the NYPD as “the best law enforcement agency in the world” and gave an entertaining speech full of impersonations of mobsters he has locked up and even one of the queen. “You did a wonderful job on September 11,” he mimicked the British monarch in a posh accent.
Nasty trolls on Twitter who were not at Cipriani described the speech as a drunken rant.
They couldn’t have been more wrong, but it shows the depths to which haters will stoop to besmirch what was a beautiful night for the heroes of 9/11 just blocks from “the first battleground in the last 20-year war on terror,” as Kerik put it.
A moment of gauche levity was captured in a Getty photograph of Biden as he stood alongside Pelosi, Barack and Michelle Obama and Bill and Hillary Clinton. He had removed his mask, his face was animated and his mouth wide open as if he were shouting at someone opposite. Video showed him making faces at people off camera, waving and pointing in an oddly exaggerated way.
The stricken looks on the faces of everyone around him, including his wife, Jill, and Michael Bloomberg, said it all.
Biden did not make a speech at any of the three places he visited that terrible day when the Islamists struck.
He had hoped to crow about being the only president with the fortitude to end the so-called forever war, but no such luck. With the troop withdrawal a debacle, silence was his only option.

As shown by the reactions observed in Miranda Devine’s commentary, America has become two nations
I would encourage a reading of the full New York Post commentary, in which she expounds on Trump’s visit to a New York fire station and contrasts the reactions of those there to the reactions of those at the event Biden visited.
However, this divide has been a theme that has permeated my posts due to the obvious outward liberal bias within main stream media and the downplaying of anything which builds up the rights of the masses.
