10 ways 9/11 changed life in America

Leo Homann in World Net Daily:  


. . . "Most of the changes have not greatly affected the ability of Islamic terrorists to get into the country and harm Americans, say civil-liberties advocates. The bulk of the burden of the new laws and regulations has been shouldered by native-born Americans while potential jihadists find it easier than ever to enter as refugees, asylum seekers, students, tourists and work-related visa holders, says Robert Spencer, author of the JihadWatch blog and numerous books about Islam.
"This demonization of the right as “terrorists” is something the left has always sought to achieve but 9/11 made it much easier.“ 'That was a direct consequence of the official denial that Islam and jihad had anything to do with terrorism,” Spencer told WND. “That meant that some other terrorists had to be found to justify the regulations, even if sometimes by well-intentioned people who intended to use the laws to investigate and prosecute jihadists but knew they could not get them over except by speaking about ‘militias’ and ‘right-wing’ extremists. This played into the hands of the left’s agenda to demonize the right and associate it with terrorism.”
“ 'They ruled the arguments of the right outside the realm of acceptable discourse, while simultaneously whitewashing the jihad threat,” Spencer said.
"Anti-Shariah activist Pamela Geller lays most of the blame at the feet of the Obama administration." . . .
