Ward Churchill's key demographic

In Counterpunch, student Meg Dwyer recounts what she "learned" from 9/11, in a piece subtitled, "Who wouldn't want us dead?":
On September 11, 2001, I was at the kitchen table eating breakfast and my dad turned on his God damn Fox morning news only to see replay footage of a plane crashing into a building over and over again while men in suits expressed their ratings-bumping, botoxed-up sympathy for the survivors of the so-called
"accident." I didn't really care at first-the world was in need of a subtle purge of New Yorkers, anyway-but when the second plane hit, I quit reading the paper and paid attention to the TV.
A subtle purge. It gets worse.
