Here is the first post on Pearl Harbor day that I published. Ten years ago. I said then that it was a date that would soon be forgotten. I had no idea that in ten years, not only would it be forgotten by most young American, but most young Americans would want to forget the nation that was attacked.
I've often said that Western Civilization will be the first civilization to die from suicide. Not accidental, depressed, mental health driven suicide. But a hellish perversion of guilt and shame mixed with lies and propaganda that has convinced people in the freest culture in history that it's only dumb strange coincidence that this nation they are free to want to destroy without retaliation is otherwise the most horrible and evil nation in history.
But there you go. Some still remember. I didn't see it on the national newscasts this morning, but wasn't able to watch them. Perhaps in some second hour lineup it was mentioned. Our local - and a little more conservative - outlet did a segment on the date and the attack and memorials being held. Like most things, whether you remember or not, or care or not, or wish America would have lost or not, is likely where you stand on a host of other issues.
