Democrats have become completely unhinged.
They’re ignoring basic reality in order to take underhanded political attacks.
Kamala Harris lost touch with reality when she made this 9/11 comparison.
On June 14, 2017, a Bernie Sanders supporter armed with an SKS rifle and a 9mm handgun opened fire on 24 Republican members of Congress at a baseball practice.
The anti-Trump gunman shot U.S. House Majority Whip Steve Scalise who nearly died, along with three others.
“He went there to kill Republicans, and he had a list of Republicans in his pocket,” Scalise told Fox News last year.
Democrats have made no effort to make June 14th into a national day of remembrance.
They ignore any violence from their own side.
They have no sympathy to spare for the dozens of people who were killed in the BLM riots, or that numerous people’s entire livelihoods were destroyed in the $2 billion of property damages.
But Democrats want to make January 6th into a national day of mourning, because 200 people caused $1.5 million in property damage at the Capitol. The only person who died because of January 6th was an unarmed protester who was shot by a Capitol police officer.
Yet Vice President Kamala Harris compared the Capitol riot to the bombing of Pearl Harbor in 1941, and the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.
“Certain dates echo throughout history, including dates that instantly remind all who have lived through them where they were and what they were doing when our democracy came under assault. Dates that occupy not only a place in our calendars, but a place in our collective memory. December 7th, 1941. September 11, 2001. And January 6th, 2021,” she said.
More than 2,400 Americans died in the Pearl Harbor attack, and nearly 3,000 Americans died in the 9/11 terror attacks.
Harris herself took part in the BLM protests in May 2020 even though people had already been killed and injured.
Yet she couldn’t see her own hypocrisy in denouncing the Capitol rioters: “What they sought to degrade and destroy was not only a building, hallowed as it is. What they were assaulting were the institutions, the values, the ideals that generations of Americans have marched, picketed, and shed blood to establish and defend.”
Harris is more upset that a bunch of people walked through the Capitol than when Republican leadership was shot. She more upset at the small amount of property damage at the Capitol than the hundreds of businesses that were burned to the ground.
And worse still, Harris is trying to use this as an excuse to federalize all elections with regulations that will make America’s elections completely insecure and destroy our democracy.
They’re pretending that January 6th was an insurrection because they have absolutely no justification for the changes that they want to make and are just lying.
