Nine Years After 9/11

By  Bob Grant

Here it is . . . nine years since America was cruelly and viciously attacked by 19 fanatical, hate-filled Muslims.

They may not have represented every Muslim in the world, but the Japanese dive bomber and fighter plane pilots did not represent every Japanese person when they attacked Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, “a day which will live in infamy,” according to President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

And even though those Jap pilots did not represent all Japanese, hundreds of thousands of those Japanese were rounded up and placed in internment camps for the duration of the war.

It was only recently that we apologized to those innocent Japanese-Americans. So here we are nine years after an attack, not on a military installation, but on American civilians whose only crime was that they worked in the World Trade Center Towers.

And now on that very site, these Muslims want to build a mosque and call it Cordoba Center.

Why Cordoba? That was the place in Spain where 14th century Islam reached its apogee in the conquest of Christian nations.

That name was not chosen for sentimental reasons, Muslims have no sentiment. They only have hate and vengeance in their hearts.

But, vengeance for what? For the Crusades? For Byzantium?

The United States of America did not exist in those days. The creation of the once great Republic was still centuries away.

So why the ruthless, murderous attack on September 11, 2001? If you know anything about the Koran, you must know it is harsh and demanding of its believers.

The followers of the Koran will gladly die, if they can take scores of infidels with them. That is their joy. That, according to the teaching of Mohammad is their duty to Allah!

As we observe this solemn anniversary we find that there is no attempt on the part of the Islamic world to offer any kind of contrition — no amelioration whatsoever.

The mayor of New York City chides the citizens for not accepting the enemy plopping himself down on the vestigial remains of our slain, dismembered brethren.

We should not have to beg some irrational clergymen in Tennessee, Florida or anywhere else. We have to beg these immature, narcissistic hypocrites to not inflame the tensions and animosity that Muslims have always had for us.

They refer to us as the “The Great Satan.”

I think what has been going on in the Middle East and throughout most of the world, is just a prelude to self destruction mankind is heading toward!


  1. Another BRAINWASHED American who can't think for himself.Better stick to union news instead of spewing government LIES.
    If you think that 19 "hijackers" could have brought the WTC's down then u r 1 of the morons who believed "THE AIR IS SAFE TO BREATHE." More government LIES & bullshit.There are over 900 people who have died because they listened to the government lies.They have died from breathing that safe air.From strokes,heart attacks,emphezema,multiple CANCERS and this fucked up government REFUSES to pay for their medical bills of all the 1st responders.
    So try getting the fucking information right for a change.
    There were no fucking muslims that attacked the US that day.
    911 was an inside job by a part of our government that NEEDED A WAR ON TERROR.TOTAL BULLSHIT.

  2. In 1988, Congress passed and President Ronald Reagan signed legislation which apologized for the internment on behalf of the U.S. government. The legislation stated that government actions were based on "race prejudice, war hysteria, and a failure of political leadership".[12] Over $1.6 billion in reparations were later disbursed by the U.S. government to Japanese Americans who had either suffered internment or were heirs of those who had suffered internment.[13]"

  3. Exit Bob Grant
    Published: New York Times, April 19, 1996

    Bob Grant, the radio talk-show host, was booted off WABC-AM this week, apparently for telling his listeners that he hoped Commerce Secretary Ronald Brown had been killed in the crash of his plane in Croatia. "My hunch," Mr. Grant said, "is that he is one of the survivors . . . maybe it's because at heart, I'm a pessimist."

    It was a cruel and hurtful comment, but far from the worst Mr. Grant has made about African-Americans. He has also expressed hope that Haitian immigrants would drown on their way to America, called blacks "screaming savages" and described former New York City Mayor David Dinkins as "a washroom attendant." He bemoaned the fact that the AIDS virus might take "a long time" to claim Magic Johnson's life.

    The rest of the world might bemoan that it took a long time to get rid of Mr. Grant, who has done more than his share to poison race relations in the New York area. Mr. Grant is by no means the only talk-show host in America to encourage mean-spirited, racist banter. But he was one of the most popular. Elected officials who should have known better genuflected to his ratings and showed up for interviews, hoping Mr. Grant would not say anything awful while they were there. Perhaps his ouster will give more stations -- and more politicians -- the courage to reject hate talk.


  5. John Musumeci still hasn't addressed the statement: "Muslims have no sentiment. They only have hate and vengeance in their hearts" he recently posted, in an article by Bob Grant, titled "Nine Years After 9/11." Apparently Brother Musumeci didn't read the article thoroughly enough before he posted it on his very own UBC associated website, or even after being called out on it. Criticizing him for this is in defense of the Brotherhood, to reject being torn down, and divided, by ignorance and bias. We recommend that John acknowledge that the article stereotypes Muslims, apologize for the mistake, and further resolve to keep free of discrimination. You're not going to push this under the rug, John; take the article down!

  6. I do not promote discrimination against our membership.

    The statement that “Muslims have no sentiment” is referring to the issue of naming the mosque Cordoba Center.

    As Grant writes “That name was not chosen for sentimental reasons, Muslims have no sentiment. They only have hate and vengeance in their hearts.”

    I believe what Grant is saying, the name Cordoba was not chosen for any romantic feelings but rather for hate and vengeance feelings. Why do you think they dropped the name Cordoba and changed it to Park51.

  7. Grant on his own intellectual deliberations and powers of intuitive reasoning;

    "In the days when character mattered to the people, Barack Hussein Obama would be exposed for what he is . . . a narcissist.

    But worse than that, he is beginning to look more and more like a Muslim. I am not saying he goes to the mosque on a daily basis and prays five times a day, but he was born a Muslim and he grew up in a Muslim country.

    His father was a Muslim and everything he has said since becoming president, reveals his strong feelings and affection for Islam.

    I recall that night in early 2008 when Obama was campaigning in Pennsylvania. My Josephine took a good look at him and said, he’s a Muslim!

    I chuckled at that. But, I am sorry to say I am not chuckling now!"

    Grant lamenting the fact that Unions have outgrown their usefulness:

    "There is no doubt that well over 100 years ago the need for unionizing workers was at hand. The progress the working man has made, thanks to the unions, has been phenomenal.

    But, like so many things in life there comes a time when the abuse of power destroys the system and in the long run everyone is hurt.

    A classic example of what I mean is the United Automobile Workers of America (UAW). That union has done severe damage to the auto industry by demanding and getting obscene pay increases, pensions, and health plans which really crippled General Motors, for example."

    Grant is, and always has been, a fatuous, egotistical blowhard with a broad streak of nastiness.
    Only a fool would look to him for wisdom.


I would ask that if you would like to leave a comment that you think of Local 157 Blogspot as your online meeting hall and that you wouldn’t say anything on this site that you wouldn’t, say at a union meeting. Constructive criticism is welcome, as we all benefit from such advice. Obnoxious comments are not welcome.
