Morons on the move!

The quasi-kerfuffle over the WTC museum o' freedom has found its own website. They must have some serious substantive concerns, right? Uh, no. They do have stupid questions, however:
[a] Why is a memorial alone not sufficient?
[b] How would a “narrative
of hope” be told?
[c] Why should visitors be greeted with a “we must
understand how we brought this on ourselves” exhibit?
a: If you recall, conservatives endlessly bloviated about how 9/11 was an "attack on freedom." If anyone dared to suggest there may have been a political motivation, rather than just a blind hatred of freedom, they were asked things like "why are you blaming America?" and "why do hate freedom?" Now that there's going to be a museum dedicated to conservatives' favorite pet theory (ie, their bluff has been called), what do you think they do? They whine and bitch, of course. At any rate, here's the explanation for the stupid: 9/11 was an attack on freedom. Accordingly, we ought to commemorate that which was under attack.

b: Through an historical narrative of the path of freedom. D'uh.

c: I don't see any solid evidence on the above site about a "blame America first" exhibit, but I do see lots of baseless accusations and hearsay. As Lionel Hutz would say, those are kinds of evidence. Sure, it's fun to make a fuss and protest and act like a grown-up, but they probably should've waited until they had, y'know, reason to fuss and protest.
