Vice President Kamala Harris gave a truly ridiculous speech on Thursday morning in which she compared the Capitol riot that took place one year ago today to the 9/11 and Pearl Harbor attacks on our nation.
“Certain dates echo throughout history,” Harris said, according to Fox News. “Including dates that instantly remind all who have lived them where they were and what they were doing when our democracy came under assault. Dates that occupy not only a place on our calendar but a place in our collective memory. Dec. 7, 1941, Sept. 11, 2001, and Jan. 6, 2021.”
It should be noted that nearly 3,000 people were killed on 9/11, and just over 2,400 people died in the Pearl Harbor attacks. Just one person was killed in the Capitol riot last year, and her death at the hands of a Capitol police officer was thought to be completely unjustified by many.
Nevertheless, Harris went on to claim that the Capitol rioters were trying to attack “the institutions, the values, the ideals that generations of Americans have marched, picketed, and shed blood to establish and defend.”
“On Jan. 6 we all saw what our nation would look like if the forces who seek to dismantle our democracy are successful: the lawlessness, the violence, the chaos,” she continued, adding that what happened at the Capitol that day continues to be threat to American life, stating that “what was at stake then and now is the right to have our future decided they way that the Constitution describes it: by we, the people.”
Harris then said that the Capitol riot shows both the “fragility” and “strength” of American democracy, while also praising lawmakers for returning after the vote to finish the vote counting for their “resolve” and “loyalty.”
“I wonder, how will Jan. 6 will be remembered in the years ahead? Will it be remembered as a moment that accelerated the unraveling of the oldest, greatest democracy in the world, or a moment when we decided to secure and strengthen our democracy for generations to come?” Harris asked. “The American spirit is being tested. The answer to whether we will meet that test resides where it always has resided in our country: with you.”
Democrats have created a truly nonsensical narrative around the Capitol riot as they use it daily to shame supporters of Donald Trump as if it is their job. They can whine about January 6 all they want to, but it isn’t going to get them any more votes in the upcoming mid-term elections.
