Nearly 14 years after the attacks on September 11, 2001, Melissa and I visited Ground Zero.
The whole thing is like a twisted theme park.
It was the first time she had ever been, but I had gone many times; regardless, we were both shocked at how over-the-top, corporatized, whitewashed, and smoothly packaged the whole place was. They have a $24 museum (although kids under 6 get brainwashed for free!) and kiosks selling approved 9/11 story books and tours and donation boxes everywhere where you can give even more. The government lie continues to be very profitable it seems.
Ground Zero has officially become the Disneyland of mass murder.
Worse, remember when Americans were told that the terrorists attacked us because they hate our freedoms? Well now, ironically and pathetically, signs placed all over Ground Zero inform you that you are not allowed to exercise any of those freedoms at the very place we were supposedly attacked over them.
Signs proclaim “Prohibited behavior includes, but is not limited to:”
Demonstrations, rallies, soliciting, leafleting, promotion, and any third-party vending.
Use of loud amplified devices.
Commercial filming, photography, or audio recording (oops) except by permission.
On top of that, other “Visitor Rules of Conduct” signs “remind” you that the 9/11 Memorial “is a place of remembrance and quiet reflection.” Not only should visitors “exercise proper decorum, personal behavior, and conduct at all times,” (whoever gets to decide what that means), but “All visitors and belongings are subject to security screening at the discretion of the 9/11 Memorial,” meaning they have declared their staff can stop and search you at any moment you are on the grounds for any reason they deem necessary.
It’s just so… free.
