Top O’ the Briefing
Happy Friday, dear Kruiser Morning Briefing friends. Quelleström had grown disenchanted with what he felt was a lack of passion from his fellow Tri-County Crab Rangoon Extravaganza participants.
Let’s start off with some good news before we proceed on to the frustrating and ridiculous stuff.
You will now be able to hang out with me wherever you go via our shiny new app:
We’ve been waiting for this day for a long time. We’re very excited to introduce our brand new app, THM News.
Now, with just a quick tap on your phone or tablet, you’ll have access to everything in the Townhall Media network: PJ Media, Townhall, RedState, Twitchy, HotAir, and Bearing Arms.
It’s got everything you need—from breaking news to incisive analysis and columns, podcasts, videos, cartoons, and more —all in one place. And of course, for our VIP members, you can access all of your members-only content, including live chats.
That’s right, now it’s easier to Kruiser scroll wherever you are. Forget all the nonsense you’ve heard about screen time, that only applies to people who don’t know where to find the good stuff. We’re all thrilled with the app, and we hope you will be too. There’s more info about the particulars in the above-linked post.
Now for something a little darker.
Examples of the twisted triumph of the American public education leftist indoctrination mill abound these days. The pro-“Palestine” mobs we’ve seen marching on college campuses for the last month are proof that the rot runs from kindergarten all the way through higher education.
Here’s a story from Mr. Green that makes me wish I could afford more things to throw against my walls:
Some of us — and I include more PJ Media VIP commenters than I can count — weren’t even half-joking when we said that if 9/11/2001 had been 9/11/2023, thousands or millions of Americans would take to the streets in support of al Qaeda and Osama bin Laden.
Sad to say, we were right.
Shortly after the 9/11 attacks that left nearly 3,000 dead and permanently altered the New York City skyline, bin Laden wrote his Letter to America, justifying his murderous act of terrorism, in part because of our “support to the oppressive Israelis in their occupation of our Palestine.”
The letter for some reason (I’ll get to that momentarily) resurfaced from the super-left-wing British paper, The Guardian, which for more than 20 years has hosted an English-language translation.
Thousands of young Americans took to TikTok to express how bin Laden’s words have opened their eyes.
Stephen the Younger took a deep dive into some of what the kids were saying, and he does a brilliant job of explaining the totality of the awfulness. It’s not just the heartbreak of the “Hey, this bin Laden guy made a lot of sense,” attitude, which is rough enough to deal with. It’s also that it’s being done on TikTok, which is owned by a ChiCom company.
American youth are celebrating the terrorist behind the 9/11 attacks on an app that’s passing along its data to our biggest enemy.
The cocktail parties in commie Academia must be positively abuzz with triumph these past few weeks.
These kids were taught to be this way, of course. They’re buttered up with leftist basics in K-12 public schools, which then makes them ripe for whatever seeds of anti-Americanism that the academics want to sow in their fertile brains. This works in tandem with the fact that the Democrats insist that Islamic terrorism isn’t really a problem, but Islamophobia is.
The Dems may have had a few days after 9/11 when they acknowledged that Islamic terrorists were bad people, but they got over that pretty quickly. They’ve spent more time in the 21st century talking about what Timothy McVeigh did in 1995 than what bin Laden did in 2001. Throw in all of the leftist moral relativism and the abandonment of absolute truth, and you have American kids celebrating a mass murderer on social media.
Probably wearing Che shirts.
