Biden is rightly being ridiculed for this ridiculous statement, but make no mistake: beyond the silliness and hysteria is an insidious agenda. Biden’s handlers mean to stigmatize, demonize and silence all dissent from their far-left agenda. Wildly exaggerating what happened on January 6, and the concomitant “white supremacist agenda,” is in service of that agenda.
‘What about 9/11?’ Twitter ridicules Joe Biden after he calls Capitol storming the ‘worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War’ in first address to Congress
by Katelyn Caralle, Daily Mail, April 29, 2021:
Joe Biden said during his first address to a joint session of Congress on Wednesday evening that the Capitol storming on January 6 was the ‘worst attack’ on democracy since the Civil War.
The claim immediately led to major backlash, especially from those on right-wing Twitter, who pointed to a slew of other tragedies in America between the 1860s and 2021 – like the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack, Pearl Harbor, presidential assassinations and others.
‘January 6 was worse than 9/11? Or Pearl Harbor?’ Glenn Greenwald, a journalist and former attorney wrote in a Twitter thread.
‘Or the Oklahoma City bombing? Or the dismantling of civil liberties in the name of the Cold War and War on Terror? Or the mass surveillance program secretly and illegally implemented by NSA aimed at US citzens (sic)?’ he continued, calling the president a ‘drama queen’ for hyperbolizing the January 6 riots.
‘How about the War on Drugs, mass incarceration and Jim Crow?’ Greenwald quipped. ‘Were those worse ‘attacks on democracy’ than the 3-hour Capitol riot on Jan. 6?’
‘The assassination of JFK? The interference in domestic politics by the CIA? The list of worse attacks than Jan. 6 is endless,’ he concluded.
‘Worst attack on our Democracy since the Civil War? Not 9/11? Not Pearl Harbor???’ Trump advisor Jason Miller tweeted Wednesday.
At the top of Biden’s speech, the president lamented the situation he inherited from Donald Trump when he was inaugurated on January 20.
‘As I stand here tonight — just one day shy of the 100th day of my administration. 100 days since I took the oath of office, lifted my hand off our family Bible, and inherited a nation in crisis,’ Biden said.
He then listed: ‘The worst pandemic in a century. The worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. The worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War.’
‘Now, after just 100 days, I can report to the nation: America is on the move again,’ he said, dubbing himself the fixer of all the aforementioned issues. ‘Turning peril into possibility. Crisis into opportunity. Setback into strength.
‘Life can knock us down,’ Biden said. ‘But in America, we never stay down. In America, we always get up. And today, that’s what we’re doing: America is rising anew.’
‘After 100 Days of rescue and renewal, America is ready for takeoff,’ he continued.
‘100 days ago, America’s house was on fire. We had to act.’…
