Despite the corrupt DC Media’s dishonest and highly-coordinated campaign to shut him down, Donald Trump’s refusal to back up even a step has resulted in yet more proof of the media’s ongoing cover-up of the almost certain fact that some number of American Muslims celebrated the collapse of the World Trade Center. On top of legions of eyewitnesses and a contemporaneous report in no less than the Washington Post, another newspaper report has surfaced:

In the New York Post in September of 2011, Fred Siegel wrote,
Here in New York, it was easy to get angry listening to Egyptians, Palestinians and the Arabs of nearby Paterson, N.J., celebrate as they received word of the murderous attack in New York and Washington. But Mayor Giuliani (who has been tireless and magnificent in this crisis) rightly warned New Yorker-ers that is would be wrong to take their anger our on the city’s Arab and Muslim residents. Attacks on Arab-Americans in Paterson or elsewhere are utterly indefensible.
There was no retraction of the report in the Washington Post, and so far there does not appear to be any New York Post retraction of Siegel’s declarative statement of Muslim celebrations in New Jersey.
As I have written twice before, “thousands and thousands” of American Muslims almost certainly did not celebrate the fall of the World Trade Center. Trump likely exaggerated, and while he has not retracted the claim he has also not repeated the claim.
There is, however, plenty of evidence that some number of New Jersey Muslims celebrated 9/11 and that for the last 14 years the DC Media has engaged in a coordinated cover up. Since Trump resurrected this news, strictly for partisan purposes, the DC Media has only quadrupled down on their cover up.
Trump is doing our country a great service by blowing the lid off of the whole thing. And thanks to the ability of New Media to go around and over the lying, rotted DC Media, after 14 long years, the truth is finally being set free.
UPDATE: In an interview on CNN, Giuliani conformed there were pockets of celebrations on 9/11. “New Day” co-anchor Chris Cuomo just admitted, “Were people celebrating on 9/11? Yes.”
