Obama Blames 9/11 On Lack Of Empathy

But, no, it couldn’t have anything to do with the psychopathy of the “Religion of Peace,” of course. Via Stop The ACLU, the New Yorker article that accompanied the wild cover, we get

We must also engage, however, in the more difficult task of understanding the sources of such madness. The essence of this tragedy, it seems to me, derives from a fundamental absence of empathy on the part of the attackers: an inability to imagine, or connect with, the humanity and suffering of others. Such a failure of empathy, such numbness to the pain of a child or the desperation of a parent, is not innate; nor, history tells us, is it unique to a particular culture, religion, or ethnicity. It may find expression in a particular brand of violence, and may be channeled by particular demagogues or fanatics. Most often, though, it grows out of a climate of poverty and ignorance, helplessness and despair.

We will have to make sure, despite our rage, that any U.S. military action takes into account the lives of innocent civilians abroad. We will have to be unwavering in opposing bigotry or discrimination directed against neighbors and friends of Middle Eastern descent. Finally, we will have to devote far more attention to the monumental task of raising the hopes and prospects of embittered children across the globe—children not just in the Middle East, but also in Africa, Asia, Latin America, Eastern Europe and within our own shores.

Of course, Obama doesn’t quite explain how so many of the hijackers came from middle and upper middle class families, and had good educations. That speech was given on 9/19/01.

He seems to be more worried about the USA offending murderous Islamist scumbags then kicking the shit out of the group that attack the USA and killed 3,000 of our friends and neighbors.

I guess my thought that the attacks were carried by evil thugs in furtherance of a murderous ideology would be viewed as insufficiently nuanced by Obama.

Of course, Obama’s tune has changed very little to this day.

Some will remember how humiliating it was to have the useless liberal rag Jimmy Carter in the White House when Iran invaded our embassy. The sniveling socialist post turtle Obama impersonating a President when the next 9/11 is inflicted will be a thousand times worse.

Can’t argue with that.
