HORROR FILE: 911 American Museum Should Not Be Too American?

Fight at WTC Memorial over iconic flag-raising photo being overly patriotic – NYPOST.com:

This iconic picture of firefighters raising the stars and stripes in the rubble of Ground Zero was nearly excluded from the 9/11 Memorial Museum — because it was “rah-rah” American, a new book says.

Michael Shulan, the museum’s creative director, was among staffers who considered the Tom Franklin photograph too kitschy and “rah-rah America,” according to “Battle for Ground Zero” (St. Martin’s Press) by Elizabeth Greenspan, out next month.

“I really believe that the way America will look best, the way we can really do best, is to not be Americans so vigilantly and so vehemently,” Shulan said.

    People like that should be arrested as traitors and deported to Haiti where they can at least be of some use.
