With the help of the Obama administration, the coalition is launching a public relations campaign under the radar of the mainstream media — which remains almost uniformly terrified of criticizing the nation’s first black president — to try to change 9/11 from a day of reflection and remembrance to a day of activism, food banks, and community gardens.
Are activism, food banks, and community gardens the new axis of evil? You can bet some of those food banks will be serving artichoke hearts with meatball marinara.
Update. A bunch of wingers showed up to say nasty things in the website for the National Day of Service. Note that this is despite the fact that one of the founders in the video is 9/11 family member. Classy.
