9/11 Families Are Outraged Over Leftist's Insane Claim
January 6th was definitely not a great day for America. People raided the U.S. Capitol Building and there were a few deaths. But Leftists are making an outrageous claim about the raid, they say it was worse than 9/11, and they are talking about the 9/11 that left nearly 3000 Americans dead and continues to kill first responders that breathed in all of that debris. 9/11 heard this blasphemy and told these irrational leftists how it is.
" House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) called for a “9/11-type Commission” to investigate what happened on January 6..."
"Matthew Dowd, a former President George W. Bush strategist who now acts as a left-wing pundit on MSNBC, said the Capitol riot was “worse than 9/11.”
"Huffington Post, White House correspondent S.V. Dáte said what happened on January 6 was “1000 percent worse” than 9/11 because the Osama bin Laden-backed terrorists “never threatened the heart of the American experiment.”
"Retired New York Deputy Fire Chief Jim Riches claimed, "It’s a shame. Are they kidding me? 3,000 people died, plus we have more people dying from the air that was down there … They’re comparing it to score points politically. The families are really [angry]. When I talk to them, when they compare it to that, they find that outrageous.”
"Debra Burlingame, whose brother was piloting American Airlines Flight 77 when he was killed by terrorists who hijacked the plane and crashed it into the Pentagon.
“It’s unfortunate because we’re coming up in the 20th anniversary,” Burlingame said. “There are a lot of young people who have no living memory of 9/11 … When you have all these comparisons and analogies, which are inflated and ridiculous, it minimizes what actually happened, and that’s what’s happening here. It’s a deliberate ploy.”
This is just outright insane. Thousands of Americans died on 9/11 after we were attacked by terrorists. Five Americans died during the January 6th raid that was just a group of misguided protesters. They weren't armed, this was not some kind of domestic terrorism as the Left puts it. This comparison is offensive and these leftists should be ashamed of themselves.
