9/11 Coloring Book Sparks Controversy

Via The Raw Story:

A 9/11 coloring book has emerged on the brink of the tenth anniversary of the attack on the World Trade Center. It is entitled “We Shall Never Forget 9/11: The Kids’ Book of Freedom,” and was published by Missouri-based Really Big Coloring Books.

The color book begins with Osama bin Laden plotting to attack the United States and ends with bin Laden being shot by a Navy SEAL. A spokesperson for the publisher said that seeing bin Laden get shot “provides closure” for children.

Dawud Walid, Michigan representative for the Council on American Islamic Relations, called the book disgusting because it portrays all Muslims as terrorists.

    Clearly the whole enterprise is an enormous scam. 

    Just another indirect subsidy for the manufacturers of red, yellow, orange and black crayons.  Faith, ye’d go through six black crayons before you get midway through the book.  Trust me, I know.

  10. Does it mention how the US’s appalling foreign policy and meddling in other sovereign nations’ affairs for the benefit of US based corporations is what makes terrorist groups want to attack us?

    More agenda-setting implementation to continue the divide and conquer policy.  Where’s the page about the dustification?  How NORAD was coincidentally undergoing practice drills while the planes were being hijacked?

    If you truly want to honor the victims, demand the truth.

      Especially since only kids that are like 7 and under like coloring books, and 9/11 was 10 years ago now. Math fail.

    “Children, the truth is, these terrorist acts were done by freedom-hating radical Islamic Muslim extremists. These crazy people hate the American way of life because we are FREE and our society is FREE.”

    Protip: Supporting Israel no matter what insane shit they pull is not “Freedom”

    “Free speach…If you don’t like it, don’t buy it.”
    Says the idiot who can’t spell speech.
    It’s a simple word really. 

    And if you can’t spell well, you likely can’t think well.
    And if you can’t think well, you can see through the lies
    and bullshit you’ve been told.

    And you’ve missed the point all together.
    It’s not about free “speach” it’s about hate and dishonesty.

  29. I love that graphic of Bush, looking completely focused and concerned while getting the news. Too bad they didn’t memorialize what he actually did for the first 5 minutes after he got the news…
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Na600UB-bG0And the picture of Osama’s wife standing in front of him just before he got shot. Wasn’t that proven to be COMPLETELY fabricated?

      I don’t think that there are any pictures of OBL at all in the context of the raid that supposedly killed him. No pics, “is body” was dumped into the sea and almost all the SEALs involved, are now dead, no none of that is suspicious.

  32. I wanna make my own version now, except mine will have page after page of conservatives and collaborators shitting all over themselves in terror in the days after 9-11…begging to throw away the freedoms their ancestors fought and died for in exchange for even the faintest illusion of security…and it will end with Bush and Cheney sitting beside a crackling fire on a pile of cash, heroin and dead brown babies and laughing at all the suckers who bought the propaganda hook line and sinker.

    (…but I’m not bitter or anything… ;-p )

    Maybe add a future dream sequence at the end…a kind of prayer that some braver generation will rise up and have the will to arrest the last of the Bush era cronies and waterboard them until they confess to betraying their country and electorate…then hang the fucks by their necks until they stop twitching…and dump the stinking corpses in an unhallowed shallow grave with a marker provided only so that future generation know exactly where to spit or dance according to their whims.

    Does anyone know if it contains an image of Bush and fellow lizards orchestrating the attacks from their secret UFO base underneath Antarctica? I’m not buying one otherwise.

    Forget the sick 9/11 propaganda coloring book. Don’t waste your hard-earned money, instead read a BANNED 9/11 book like “America Deceived II” by a real rebel and the “World’s Most Hated Author”, E.A. Blayre III.
