    Another FU to WTC victims, survivors and responders

    I can only speak for myself, so here goes: Fuck you Alice Greenwald, Mike Bloomberg and the rest of the Board and leadership.
    Its like they get together and compete to see who is the most tone deaf regarding WTC and what that place means to countless people. One disgusting decision after the other over the years with no apparent end in sight.
    Those of you who get the letters, cards, emails, invitations and all the other bullshit probably agree that they GAF about long as we bring our credit cards and Che k books.
    The dishonor and disrespect these people constantly display horrifies me and breaks my heart. Eventually the rest of us will be gone and the legacy of the Memorial will be crossing prior years fundraising goals to pay 6 and 7 figure compensation to Board members while they shit on us.
    And while I’m at it, WTF do De Niro and Billy Crystal, Millstein, Katsimatides and all the other stuffed shirts have to comprise the Board??? Donors and politically connected running the show and having no problem with shit like this candy flag bullshit being erected (on whose dime) at the cemetery where our friends and loved ones still lie.
    Bill Clinton!? Jimmy Carter!? Seriously?
    The place has turned into a political money sponge.
    I feel kicked solidly in the balls AGAIN by this garbage. Oh, almost forgot a giant FU PANYNJ

    Somebody thought it would be a good idea to install a 9-foot-tall statue — paying tribute to Saudi Arabia and displaying its flag — near the 9/11 Memorial earlier this month, and New Yorkers are not happy.

    As a result, Port Authority officials have decided to remove the art exhibit and place it somewhere else after receiving countless complaints from social media users and local victims groups — who are outraged since 15 of the 19 attackers on September 11 were Saudi citizens.

    “We have been in contact with the 9/11 Memorial and various stakeholders, and in full collaboration with the artist will relocate the exhibit from its current location,” the agency said in a statement Monday. “We believe this solution respects the unique sensitivities of the site and preserves the artistic integrity of the exhibit.”

    Many of the victims’ families and survivors have sued Saudi Arabia under the claim that its employees had willfully helped the 9/11 hijackers. The Middle East nation, however, has denied its involvement.

    French artist Laurence Jenkell created the Saudi statue — which is made to look like a giant piece of candy — as part of a 2011 exhibit honoring countries in the G20 Summit. She has taken the “Candy Nations” installation to over 25 sites across the world.

    “I first created flag candy sculptures to celebrate mankind on an international level and pay tribute to People of the entire world,” Jenkell told The Observer after rolling out the exhibit last week. “Given the unique and justified sensitivities surrounding the World Trade Center, it came to my mind to propose to remove the sculpture showcasing the flag of Saudi Arabia, or relocate it to a less sensitive location. But there is no way I can do such a thing as the flag of Saudi Arabia is entirely part of the G20 just like any other candy flag of this Candy Nations show.”

    The Port Authority — which curated and installed the exhibit — made the decision for her and now plans to send the statues to JFK Airport, according to a PAPD spokesperson.

    “The exhibit is being moved to JFK sometime this week,” the spokesperson said.

    Relatives of 9/11 victims and survivors praised the move but still have their concerns.

    “The Port Authority is apparently now taking the right action this week by removing the sculpture from the plaza at Ground Zero,” a statement reads from a coalition of family members. “Its apparent plan to relocate the exhibit to JFK International Airport is questionable as well, for obvious reasons. But surely the sculpture should be nowhere near the site of this mass murder.”

    The group referred to the sculpture’s presence at the World Trade Center complex as an “outrageous affront to the 9/11 community and all other Americans who seek justice for the attacks on our nation on September 11, 2001.”

    Many people had been blasting it on social media throughout the week.

    “Statue needs to be destroyed!!!!” wrote one Twitter user in a message to the PAPD.

    “BEYOND DISGUSTING,” another said.

    So...move it from the sight of the 9/11 memorial, to an airport.

    Seriously, I can’t be the only one.
    The escape is half complete. The inventor of Hawk fishing. (soon to be seen on ESPN 8 the Ocho)


      Moved to

      Hopefully they'll load it onto a transport plane and drop it in a Saudi Palace!


        They either seriously DGAF or they seriously just don’t get it. I’m going with DGAF


          Nothing a lot of tannerite wouldn’t fix.




              Same people that support destroying Confederste statues use our tax dollars to do shit like this.
              "Get a Dog. Cause Cats Are For Bitches!"


                maybe they can install it at another airport north of us,,,what a complete HUGE bunch of assholes that DGAF truly no fucking common sense


                  I am so sick of having this bullshit shoved down my throat. This state and for the most part, the country, doesn’t give two shits about it’s own anymore. Politicians have no problem insulting and shitting on a certain group of individuals in order to make a group of, how can I say it, scumbags, feel better.

                  Unfucking real. Yet another reason why NY sucks and this feel good everyone is special let’s be friends with the world shit needs to stop. No one from any other country gave a shit about the innocent civilians who died in the WTC tragedy; the entire Middle East practically cheered.

                  Note to our leaders - next time you go to war against a region make sure you finish the war. You can use the new annexed terrority to ship the dreamers to.

                  Disgusting. All of it.

                      You guys are so fucking insensitive!!! I fully support removing the Christopher Columbus statue and keep the Saudi statue up. Come on guys! We're supposed to be open minded people!

                      I shouldn't have to say it, but yeah, that was sarcasm.


                        I am not armed out of fear of who's in front of me.
                        I am armed out of love of those behind me.
