Firefighters Union Backs Propaganda Free WTC Memorial

This is good news. The Uniformed Firefighters Association in New York withdrew its support for the WTC plans of the far left group International Freedom Center and Drawing Center. These groups planned to install large areas with exhibits that in effect, blame America for the September 11 attacks.
Steve Cassidy, president of the Association said, his "'...membership and our 9/11 families believe that the memorial design will take away from the memory and sacrifice of the firefighters who bravely gave their lives during the most horrific terrorist attacks our country has had to face.'" Because of the objections to the America haters plans, "John Whitehead -- chairman of the LMDC's (Lower Manhattan Development Corp) board of directors and a foundation board member -- gave the International Freedom Center until September 23 to work with family members and produce more specific plans and warned if the plans do not satisfy the rebuilding agency, 'we will find another use or tenant consistent with our objectives for that space.'"
Fantastic. Members of the public are standing up to the America haters who would blame this country for the murderous actions of islamists. The Drawing Center has already turned tail and run according to Enemy Press CNN.
Predictably the whining from those groups have begun. "A spokeswoman said the foundation was 'deeply saddened' by the union's decision. 'We hope that the LMDC will work with the cultural institutions and the family members to resolve the concerns at the site,' Lynn Rasic said. The chairman and the vice chair of the International Freedom Center, Tom Bernstein and Paula Berry, said Tuesday they looked forward to meeting with the union officials to share their plans. They said they were creating a family advisory council to ensure that everything at the International Freedom Center 'is done with the greatest sensitivity and respect for the sacrifice so many heroes, both in and out of uniform, made that day.'" Buzzzzt! Sorry, you're lying. These plans are well known and none of them had any sensitivity towards the sacrifice, they focused on other issues, other agendas when 911 is all it should be focused on.
One group has left, now all we have to do is hope that the IFC leaves as well. Sign a petition to take back the memorial here.
