9/11/01 - The Howard Stern Show

I just saw this on Youtube tonight.

I found out about the attacks from listening the Howard Stern Show.

Pretty amazing to hear it again.

That is fascinating (if that's a good word to use for something like this).

And at the end to hear Stern use the phrase "the chickens have come home to roost" years before Rev. Wright and Obama made it infamous...

As one who isn't a Howard stern fan, I wonder if the cast of that program changed their opinions of the Muslim ME during the years since. They all sound like they were the first counter-jihad group who was fairly well aware of the potential of the Islamic enemy. Perhaps, only Stephen Emerson was more vocal about the threat at the time.
With four children ranging in age from pre-school to college...I tried not to dwell on the tragedy of 9/11. By 2004 it became very clear there was not going to be adequate retribution for either of the WTC attacks. Our leaders were refusing to identify the enemy behind these attacks.
I didn't begin to comprehend the extent of the threat until 2004 when my son started college and needed my assistance with email. I noticed his box was filled with political sounding messages. Either curiosity or concern prompted me to explore a message from Robert Horowitz at FrontPageMag.com.
Utterly apolitical my entire life to that point, aware of our two party system, I could not tell you which party was right or left leaning or what that even meant. I was completely ignorant of Islam. So ignorant...I did not know the identities "islam", "Muslim", "Muhammed" etc. were related or religious terms. That singular email launched my curiosity like an avalanche which suddenly began to connect dots to past events as well as politics.
Now, listening to this program today, I am angry ...furious... 20/20 hindsight...this nation reacted like a battered wife. How many Muslims were residing in the US before the first attack on the WTC. How many before 9/11/2001?
The US, as a nation was slapped around by the Islamists and instead of separating this nation from the threat...our leaders increased Muslim immigration exponentially. So unfortunate...a wake up call went unheeded and now all of mankind suffers death by a thousand cuts.

Howard spoke like this for years afterward. I listened to him until around 2005 or so. I don't know if he changed after that.

I do know he was against the Iraq war from the beginning.

It is fascinating, as MR said, to listen back to this. At the time, I though Howard was incredibly irresponsible for his advocation of using nukes. I still do. I think that is a stupid thing to say when you have access to the public airwaves.

But then, look at the stupid things I say.


Anyway, that is interesting, Anonymous, that you were so apolitical. I was also somewhat apolitical. I was a bit of a Leftie, at this point, having spent years of my life in college and the arts and media.

9/11 changed me pretty drastically, because I couldn't believe my leftie friends thought is was a good thing, or reasonable that we would get hit like this. They thought we deserved it.

I must admit, I have hatred in my heart against them for that. It's hard for me to go through my life with that kind of anger for people I otherwise love.

But such is life.

Another other fascinating detail:

Howard was talking about Bin Laden from the time the second plane hit.

I did not know who Bin Laden was then. Or if I did, I was only vaguely aware of him from Noam Chomsky.

I knew that Chomsky and others were saying Clinton bombed an aspirin factory in Sudan as a wag the dog exercise to get himself out of trouble.


Yesterday, before I came home and found this video, I had been walking with my daughter on her college campus and I was making fun of hippies, and my daughter told me she thinks of herself as a hippie. I told her I have contempt for hippies because I realized "they are deadly serious about their stupidity".

Those were the words I used.

I do not hate my daughter. I am quite sure if she had actually witnessed 9/11 in real time, as we did, she would think pretty much the same as we do.

HOWEVER, she was only 3 at the time.

People of her generation do not get it. I think it is a sad truth, you had to have been there. You had to know what the world was like before vs. what it is like now. You had to have watched as others cursed our nation on a day when we got hit like this.

It was the most shocking thing of my life. I wish I could get over the hatred I have for those people, but at least it is being put to good use, in that it has motivated me to do this ever since.
