Town Manager Smacks Down Muslims Angry Over 9/11 Memorial

CastCaptureThe Town of Owego is a small community located in upstate N.Y.. Residents are dedicating a memorial to 9/11 victims, including a local man, Derek Statkevicus, who was killed during the attack.

However, a Muslim group has a big problem with the the proposed memorial because it includes language forbidden by politically correct social justice warriors. The phrase which President Obama refuses to utter, Islamic terrorist, appears on the memorial. Ohh, the humanity!

Unfortunately for the angry Muslim group,  Town Supervisor Donald Castelluci. Jr. could care less about historical facts offending people.

From Fox News:

“They want us to change the word from ‘Islamic terrorist’ to either ‘terrorist’ or ‘Al Qaeda terrorist,’” City Manager Donald Castelluci told me. “I sent them back an email saying I disagreed with their premise 100 percent.”

The entire inscription reads:

“On September 11, 2001 nineteen Islamic terrorists unsuspectedly boarded four airliners departing east coast airports to hijack the planes and carry out a series of coordinated attacks against the United States. This is a tribute to all the lives lost that day and to the heroic sacrifice of all who rushed to help. As Americans, we honor their memory by living our lives in freedom. We will never forget.”

Mr. Castelluci said they have no plans to change a single letter in the town’s memorial.

“I don’t live in a politically correct world,” he told Fox affiliate WICZ. “I live in a historical fact world…whether it’s American, homegrown, Christianity, Islamic, you call it what it is. And we don’t whitewash things, especially here.”

It’s too bad President Obama doesn’t live in a “historical fact world” like this town supervisor does.
