The following is a transcript of Todd’s morning commentary – heard on hundreds of radio stations around the nation.

Hello Americans, I’m Todd Starnes. Stand by for news and commentary next.

On this the 20th anniversary of the Muslim terrorist attacks – there is a movement to forget about what happened that day. And to rewrite the history of that terrible, awful day. 

The Virginia Department of Education provided teachers a training video that urged them to avoid calling the 9/11 hijackers terrorists or killers.


The video featured Amaarah Decuir, a Muslim professor at American University. 

“We’re not going to reproduce a false assumption of Muslim responsibility for 9/11. We’re just going to begin right there and name that there is no responsibility and therefore we’re not going to use this space to try and untangle that,” she said.

Teachers were also told to avoid promoting American exceptionalism during lessons about the attacks. 

“We’re also not going to reproduce what’s understood as American exceptionalism — this understanding that America is a land at the top of a beautiful mountain and that all other countries, nations, and people are less than America. We’re not going to reproduce notions that American history and American experiences are more significant than the experiences or histories of other people,” Decuir added.

As I wrote in my book, “Culture Jihad: How to Stop the Left From Killing a Nation,” it is Cancel Culture at its most heinous. 

The Virginia Dept. of Education told Fox 5 in Washington, D.C. that the views of the professor were hers alone.

“This webinar was part of a series intended to help teachers create welcoming and affirming classrooms for all students and in this specific case to provide support to Muslim students, who may be subject to bullying around the anniversary of 9/11,” the statement read.

So if you child asks what happened on September 11, 2001 – tell them the truth. It was the day that Muslims waged jihad on American soil and killed 3,000 of our fellow countrymen in the name of the religion of peace. 

But it was also the day that Americans set aside their political differences and stood as one people. United. Making great sacrifices so that our children — the children of the 9-11 generation would breathe free. 

That, we must never forget.
