After One WTC lit red, white and blue for terror attack, conservatives have just one question

Powered by Topple

Red, white and blue lights emanated from One World Trade Center following Tuesday’s deadly terror attack in New York City.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s office issued a statement ordering the lighting of the structure, also known as the Freedom Tower.

The building was lit to honor the victims of the terrorist attack earlier in the afternoon in downtown Manhattan that left eight people dead and several others injured after the suspect, 29-year-old Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov, drove a truck into a group of pedestrians on a bike path.

“Governor Cuomo also directed that the One World Trade Center to be lit in red, white, and blue in honor of freedom and democracy,” the statement from the Democratic governor’s office read.

The tower, sitting on the rebuilt World Trade Center complex, has been lit before in recognition of other national tragedies.

But many Twitter users felt the effort served only a symbolic purpose while the root of tragedies like Tuesday’s seem not to be confronted head on.

With New York’s liberal leadership and sanctuary city status, many are just plain tired of hashtags and superficial patriotic gestures.
