15 years since 9/11

Al-Qaeda’s attacks on 9/11 happened 15 years ago. During that time span Charles went from being at the forefront of anti Jihad to being a social justice warrior. He no longer focuses on Jihadists who thankfully are killing themselves in Syria, but instead rants about Nazis.

I do find the Alt Right disgusting and they deserve all the scorn in the world, but I find the various Islamic groups bad as well. 15 years after 9/11, Charles has forgotten who attacked us.


The following are Charles Johnson’s own unedited comments as they appeared on Little Green Footballs, 11 September 2001.

The creatures who did this were not human. Humanity is something you choose; when these things chose their course, plotted their evil, and carried it out, they relinquished the privilege of being considered human.

Even more sickening are the scenes of celebration coming out of Palestine and other Islamic states. Such hate. Such joyous embracing of evil. It’s just soul-wrenching.

Jeffrey just put up a note. I haven’t been able to connect to the Morning News, or to Metafilter or wholelottanothing.

So what exactly fills you with “disrespect?” The idea that we know who the enemy is? Do you disagree?

Or are you simply expressing the knee-jerk, unthinking European criticism of anything American that I’ve seen so many times? That’s what I think, and frankly, it’s very boring, and very ignorant. And at a time like this, very inappropriate.

If you have something thoughtful to contribute I welcome it. But if you continue to equate the Israelis with the Nazis, you may get banned. Think before you write.

And isn’t this the central dilemma of trying to deal with monsters like these—that they feel no similar hesitation about involving innocents? And in fact, that they deliberately target innocents?

This is the horrifying reality that Israel has been dealing with; when the monsters create the rules, how can you avoid taking on some of their attributes in the battle?
