The International Freedom Center

I'm sure by now everyone's heard about the IFC. But, on the 4th anniversary of 9-11, I decided to rehash a bit. The center, adjacent to the 9-11 memorial, will contain not only tributes to those fallen in the twin towers, but also, among others, slavery, the Holocaust, and Native American mistreatment will be commemorated there. Don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with honoring any or all of those. But not here. The site where so many Americans lost their lives should not be used by the politically correct left. It shouldn't be a political issue; 9-11 was not a political day.

Pearl Harbor does not have a museum honoring victims of the IRA's terror attacks. The battlefield at Gettysburg has no tribute to victims of genocide in Rwanda. And this should be the same. Politics and fear of offending that ominous someone shouldn't change it.
