A Mouse Is Not A Lion: 1/6 Was Not 9/11

The frequently heard demand for a 9/11 type commission to deal with a mob’s vandalism at the Capitol on January 6 implies that these two events were commensurate. Such a claim is laughably absurd.

Almost 3,000 innocent people were killed on 9/11, most in two collapsing skyscrapers rammed by airplanes loaded with highly flammable jet fuel.

On 1/6, ONE innocent person was killed, in what appears to have been a scuffle between some rioters and a Capitol police officer, who died. One of the rioters was shot and killed by the Capitol police. Three people died from medical emergencies, such as a heart attack or stroke.

As for property damage, on 1/6 it was not what were the world’s two tallest skyscrapers at the time, plus part of the Pentagon, plus three commercial jet passenger planes, but some broken glass.

Nevertheless, on the basis of this absurd equivocation between 6/1 and 9/11, a cabal of radical Leftists in the House of Representatives rammed through the impeachment of the President of the United States. The House was turned into a lynch mob.

Those who claim that 6/1 was similar to 9/11 are unfit to disseminate the news or hold public office. They are intellectually and morally despicable. They deserve the profound contempt of all mankind.
