(The Post Millennial) – Vice President Kamala Harris is being criticized following her and President Joe Biden’s address to the nation on the one year anniversary of the riot at the Capitol building, after she equated the day to events at Pearl Harbor and in New York, DC, and Pennsylvania on September 11 that killed thousands of Americans.
“Certain dates echo throughout history, including dates that instantly remind all who have lived through them where they were, and what they were doing when our democracy came under assault,” said Harris.
“Dates that occupy not only a place on our calendars, but a place in our collective memory: December 7, 1941, September 11, 2001 and January 6, 2021,” Harris continued.
In response to Harris’ comments, Twitter users quickly condemned her comparison of the dates, pointing out the thousands of deaths that occurred on the other dates.
As someone who remembers 9/11 vividly, what happened at the Capitol doesn't come anywhere close. Thousands died. We mourned for weeks. All comedy stopped.
The media & political establishment is making this comparison to emotionally manipulate the public. Don't let them trick you

When a two-hour riot happened at the Capitol, Kamala Harris compared it to 9/11 and Pearl Harbor.
When neighborhoods in Minneapolis were burned to the ground, Kamala Harris helped raise bail money for the people who did it.

One man, who said he is the son of a 9/11 survivor, said Harris’ comparison of the dates was “a slap in the face to 9/11 survivors and heroes,” like his mother.
As the son of a 9/11 first responder & survivor, & as someone who experienced the tragedy of 1/06, I can tell you unequivocally—1/06 was NOT & will NEVER be comparable to 9/11.
To hear the @VP compare the 6th to 9/11 is a slap in the face to 9/11 survivors & heroes like my mom.

Kamala Harris said January 6th is the equivalent of Pearl Harbor and 9/11. Honest question, does anyone actually believe this, even the most idoitic left winger on the planet? This is one of the dumbest historical analogies I have ever seen.

Hi @VP – People in the Twin Towers on 9/11 had to make the decision to either die in a burning building or jump to their death. How many people had to make that decision on January 6th?
