They really are that foolish as The Right Scoop notes, January 6th is now worse than everything
Former ABC News Political Analyst Matthew Dowd was on MSNBC yesterday and made the most absurd comment about regarding the Capitol riot being worse than 9/11:
If you think about this, what would’ve happened if after 9/11 we had done nothing? … Think about it. And to me, though there was less loss of life on January 6th, January 6th was worse than 9/11 because it’s continued to rip our country apart and give permission for people to pursue autocratic means. So I think we’re at a much worse place than we’ve been… I think we’re at the most perilous point in time since 1861 and the advent of the civil war.
I can’t believe he said “though there was less loss of life on January 6th”. That is the understatement of the century. In reality, almost 3,000 people died on 9/11 and only one died because of the Capitol riot. Only one, and it was a rioter. To gloss over this the way he did, just so he could make his point, is disgusting.
But then he takes it a step farther and suggests that if we did nothing after 9/11, we would have been fine. The Capitol riot, however, was worse because “it’s continued to rip our country apart and give permission for people to pursue autocratic means”. I don’t even know what that means. The riot happened and it’s over. It was over on that day. There are no continued attempts to riot at the Capitol. The election happened and Biden is in the White House.
As I have said before the left is in a Pit of Eternal Stupidity, and yes, they are perpetually digging. They take hyperbole to inane levels, then accuse normal people of being kooks.
