One of the greatest evils being perpetrated on the American people is the mainstream media's attempt to rewrite history. I wrote extensively about that in my new book, “Culture Jihad: How to Stop the Left From Killing a Nation.”

The latest example of this detestable scourge on history can be found in the pages of The New York Times.

Journalist James Barron blamed the Muslim terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 on airplanes.

"Eighteen years have passed since airplanes took aim at the World Trade Center and brought them down," he wrote.

Mr. Barron failed to mention those airplanes were piloted by Muslims. Not once in his story titled, "Remembering Those Lost 18 Years Ago on 9/11," did he mention Islamic radicals.

The Times later changed the story to note that “terrorists commandeered” the airplanes and they deleted a tweet referencing the original story. 

It was almost as if the writer invoked the dismissive spirit of Rep. Ilhan Omar, the Democrat congresswoman from Minnesota.

"Some people did something," she told the Council on American Islamic Relations earlier this year. 

"CAIR was founded after 9/11, because they recognized that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties," Omar said.

Omar, the first Muslim American woman elected to Congress, was rebuked by many conservative lawmakers.

"First Member of Congress to ever describe terrorists who killed thousands of Americans on 9/11 as 'some people who did something,' tweeted Rep. Dan Crenshaw, (R-TX) "Unbelievable."

As one of my readers so aptly noted, The New York Times summed up the events of that September morning as some planes just did something. 

Let's be clear about what really happened on September 11, 2001.

That was the day when Islamic radicals waged bloody jihad on American soil and slaughtered thousands of our fellow countrymen in the name of their religion.

Never forget.
