OWEGO, New York 9/7/16–The Children of Abraham of the Southern Tier, an Islamic group, has taken offense at this little upstate New York town’s new memorial honoring those who died in the September 11, 2001 Muslim terrorist attacks in New York City that killed over 3000 people as well as many more in a simultaneous attack on The Pentagon in D.C. with another plane headed to the Capitol which was thwarted by passengers who fought off the attackers as the plane crashed in Pennsylvania, killing everyone on board.
According to Journalist Todd Starnes, the memorial plaque, to be dedicated this Saturday, identified those responsible for the attacks as, “Islamic terrorists.”
Of course, this will never do, says a spokesperson for Southern Tier, who demanded that the words, Islamic Terrorists” be changed since, “this would encourage hatred toward Muslims.” We can’t have that, y’know.
Owego City Manager Donald Castelluci refused the demand, stating that he would not change a single letter in the town’s memorial. CHEERS! At last an official who will not bow down to “political correctness.” It is to be hoped that all American citizens will wise up as well. The plaque honored a local citizen, Derek Statkevicus who was killed in that attack while working on the 89th floor of 1 World Trade Center.
