On Sunday, September 11, Democrats spread across the weekly TV talk shows implying that the mass-murdering terrorists who killed almost 3,000 Americans are comparable to the "terrorists" who rioted at the Capitol. That would be almost 3,000 to just one American violently killed on January 6 -- and that American, Ashli Babbitt, was shot dead by a Capitol policeman and is considered a "terrorist."
Chuck's first question to Vice President Kamala Harris for Meet the Press didn't air on NBC, but here's how he asked about the post-January 6 MAGA threat: “Is the threat equal or greater to the threat that what we faced after 9/11?” How about "lesser"?
On CNN's State of the Union, host Dana Bash asked an open-ended question to Hillary Cliinton about what she thought about the 9/11 anniversary, and Hillary "We have also, I think, been reminded about how important it is to try to deal with extremism of any kind, especially when it uses violence to try to achieve political and ideological goals." The violent riots after George Floyd's death in 2020 were used to try and achieve political goals, including getting Democrats in the White House.
Then on CBS's Face the Nation, host Margaret Brennan asked Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.) about 9/11 in general and he said: "The stunning thing to me is, here we are 20 years later, and the attack on the symbol of our democracy was not coming from terrorists, but it came from literally insurgents attacking the Capitol on January 6."
He repeated it: "I think the threat of terror has diminished...But I do worry about some of the activity in this country, where the election deniers, the insurgency that took place on January 6, that is something I hope we could see that same kind of unity of spirit." There is somehow "unity of spirit" in comparing Republicans to al-Qaeda.
