Liberal DailyKos complains of 'orgy-like fawning' of 9/11 remembrance 'overkill

Seriously, who are these people?  (Emphases are mine)

Why, if so many people wish to remember their loved ones in the Twin Towers, or their sons and daughters who died or were seriously injured in Iraq and Afghanistan, why would I dare suggest that too much is simply too much? Let them celebrate, let them grieve, let them go all out in the most hollywood-styled way, let it all hang out. Let it be.

At risk of pissing off a few people, I totally disagree. This is just wrong. Here's why.

A. It serves little purpose. People can and should grieve in their own ways. Privately. Let them do so, without shoving it down our throats, especially on a commercial basis. This is not a professional ceremony, where professional criers were hired for color and background noise.

B. Public Displays of 9/11 Memories (or whatever you wish to call this orgy) without research into the pre-existing causes of 9/11, the failures of our multi billion dollar entities [military] tasked with protecting us from precisely such an event, and reasons for the attack are worse than counter productive. ...

Apparently hanging a flag on 9/11 is just some sort of "faux patriotism" and amounts to little more than an "orgy-like fawning."  Yeah, sure.  Whatever.

But perhaps the most asinine claim in this entire vitriolic rant is this:

Even worse, [commemorating 9/11] will drive the idiots among us, the racists, the anti-Muslim Christian cultists and functionally illiterate, gun toting TeaBaggers into acts of domestic violence, simply because their targets have darker skin, speak with a mid eastern accent, and cherish their god with a different name. Too many brews, too little brains, and an IHOP in Atlanta can soon be the site of death, even against loyal, patriotic Arab-Americans. It has happened before. It will happen again.

When has this happened?  When has a band of tea partiers EVER threatened violence against ANYONE?

And finally, any sort of patriotic remembrance of the 9/11 attacks is clearly just an attack on Democrats:

C. Lastly, this faux patriotism is corporate media's way of attacking the democrats, and in a rather underhanded way, the President. Not once during the next week of orgy-like fawning over our loss, will democrats be credited for any success. Bush, his cronies, and the military will be shown, ad nauseum. Each and every program will try to outdo every other station, while missing the big pictures and big questions.

How dare we remember that President George W. Bush was president on 9/11 and led America's efforts for retribution immediately following the attacks?!  Sorry, but this would be like recalling Pearl Harbor's "day of infamy" without mentioning Franklin Roosevelt.

Glenn often talks about how our history is being rewritten -- who would've thought it'd take just 10 years for many it to start? How dare we remember history that narrow-minded progressive bloggers don't like to remember?

On the contrary to this blogger's claims, I think that President Obama should be praised for the role he played in helping take down the world's most-wanted terrorist earlier this year.  We must remember how on 9/12, we were not Democrats or Republicans, but were Americans united, and highlighting a Democrats' role in history does not automatically mean that we must simultaneously ignore the contributions of Republicans.

It's this kind of narrow and divisive thinking that makes a mockery of the calls of "United We Stand" following Sept. 11, 2001 and only hinders our nation's ability to recover after such a traumatic blow.
