Never forget how the State used the attacks of September 11, 2001 as a pretext to shred the Constitution and encourage the escalation of police thuggery against citizens.
Never forget how the State used September 11 to encourage profiteering in the “defense” and “security” industries at the expense of citizens.
Never forget how the State used September 11 as a pretext for illegal wars and military occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan.
Never forget how the State used September 11 as a pretext for illegal imprisonment, secret courts and torture.
Never forget that the atmosphere of oppression, suspicion, paranoia and racism which has taken root in this country since September 11, 2001 has been fostered and maintained by both Republican and Democratic governments.
And last, but certainly not least…
Never forget how you, the American people, rolled over and allowed yourselves to be bullied and cowed into silence by the likes of Bush, Cheney, Obama, Ridge, Chertoff, Napolitano, Clinton, and Lieberman while they waged wars of aggression, built a gulag, committed genocide and torture and stripped away your liberty and dignity.
