At times there is no imagining just how stupid people on the left can be but they keep trying to push the envelope. To wit- the mind numbingly idiotic assertion that Jan 6 was worse than 9-11. Huffington Post reporter S.V. Dáte said Jan 6 was “1000 percent” worse than 9-11.
1000 percent worse. https://t.co/0jS4r1S2uk

Matthew Dowd, the so-called “GOP strategist” who will say anything for face time on MSNBC said 9-11 pales in comparison to Jan 6.
“To me, though there was less loss of life on Jan. 6 – Jan. 6 was worse than 9/11 because it’s continued to rip our country apart and give permission for people to pursue autocratic means,”
“He couldn’t be more right,” Schmidt said at a town hall for the Lincoln Project. “The 1/6 attack for the future of the country was a profoundly more dangerous event than the 9/11 attacks. And in the end, the 1/6 attacks are likely to kill a lot more Americans than were killed in the 9/11 attacks, which will include the casualties of the wars that lasted 20 years following. “We have had … political violence in this country, and I believe we’re on the edge of another one, tragically. And we have to fight back against it at the ballot box.”
And Joy Reid- well, she’s such an idiot it’s not worth the bandwidth wasting time on her but you can catch her blathering here. Becket Adams calls this “fetishization.” While that is true there’s more to it. 9-11 resulted in the deaths of 3000 Americans and billion of dollars in damages. Jan 6 saw one death that day- Ashli Babbit was murdered, possibly by Lt. Michael L. Byrd. Hundreds were arrested for all kinds of trumped up (if you will) charges but realistically they were arrested for trespassing. Many are still being held- not being formally charged, held without bail and some in solitary confinement. For trespassing. They are being denied their 6th Amendment rights. No one has faced a weapons charge. The FBI has screwed people who weren’t even in the Capitol. It’s shameful. Far worse crimes committed in Portland saw charges dropped en masse.
Why is Jan 6 being called worse than 9-11? For a couple of reasons.
Number 1: Trump
Anything associated with Donald Trump is going to milked for all it’s worth. If you could take Trump out of the equation this would be no more of an incident than when Pelosi cheered the invasion of the Wisconsin Capitol. Jan 6 is just one more tool in the anti-Trump kit, so afraid of him they are.
Number 2: AOC has PTSD
Sandy Cortez claims she’s in “therapy” consequent to the “trauma” of Jan 6 despite not even being in the Capitol. She likened it to being in a war. (muffled laughter)
Number 3: Reporters were “traumatized”
Catch this title from Vice:
‘So, So Angry’: Reporters Who Survived the Capitol Riot Are Still Struggling
“I’m still not sleeping like I used to, even to this day,” said PBS NewsHour correspondent Lisa Desjardins. “I became kind of an insomniac.”
O.M.G. What a bunch of pathetic whiners. I guess covering a real war zone is out for them. BTW, no reporter was harmed. They have been widely mocked. Robby Starbuck:
“This is ridiculous. Grow up you weirdos. How can one group of people be so addicted to pretending they’re victims?”
Dear @VICENews: I was at the Capitol that day in the Cannon building. It was no big deal. Put your big boy pants on.
Maybe Bison Boy’s chants still ring in their heads.
Jan 6 was not worse than 9-11. It’s not even in the same universe. Anyone asserting otherwise is a complete moron. Obviously there is no shortage of them. Why are they on about this?
Politics. Period. The crime now is the illegal deprivation of the rights of those arrested.
We still don’t know why the cops waved the protesters in, whether the FBI had infiltrated the protesters and even more so- who unlocked the doors.
Inquiring minds want to know.
