There are many iconic video moments from the horror of 9/11, but nobody said "we deserved it" as clearly as these two patriots, Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson. The TV duo immediately blamed the terrorist attacks on: the American Civil Liberties Union, the U.S. federal courts, the Christian God, pagans, abortionists, feminists, male and female homosexuals, and a liberal non-profit called People for the American Way.
"It's a first for mass transit in the United States. NYPD officers, armed with rifles, submachine guns, body armor and bomb-sniffing dogs will begin patrolling the city's subway system thanks to a 50 percent increase in a homeland security grant." Well, good thing we're putting that to good use! Turning an already problematic police force into a paramilitary organization? What could go wrong! If there's any of that grant money left we should use it to create androids that subdue anyone attempting to dance at a non-licensed bar. With a force as restrained and well-trained and not-roided out of their power-corrupted minds as the NYPD armed to the fucking teeth, what could go wrong? Should we be grateful it's just a ceremonial show of force, like those speeding cop car motorcades that wailed through midtown after the bicycle bombing? Or should we be worried!
