It's way worse when it's our neighbors trying to do damage to the country.

make me some tea: It's way worse when it's our neighbors trying to do damage to the country.


Worse more when we look the other way
 
2021-09-11 1:35:21 AM  
Because it means 9/11 achieved the terrorists' intended goal?
 
2021-09-11 6:04:46 AM  
Well no shiat.  1/6 < 9/11.  That's just math.

9/11 was not an existential threat to American democracy.
 
2021-09-11 6:15:05 AM  
Because our country (mostly) recovered from 9/11.  It will never recover from 1/6.

Pants full of macaroni!!: Because our country (mostly) recovered from 9/11.  It will never recover from 1/6.


You'll need to explain that to me, what "mostly recovered" means. And it better involve something more than "we made a new building to replace the old one".
 
2021-09-11 8:10:22 AM  
January 6, 2021 was the closest America has come to destruction since 1860. The republican party of Trump is -- by far and without question -- the greatest threat America has faced since the Civil War. Full stop.
 
2021-09-11 8:16:14 AM  
Well, after 9/11 we hunted down the perps like the filthy vermin they were.

After 1/6, we had to listen to "their side" and "you have to understand" instead of hunting them down like the filthy vermin they are.
 
2021-09-11 8:33:50 AM  
30% of the country* didn't try to kill us on 9/11?


*Making the assumption that if you voted for Trump in 2020, you're just a wannabe 1/6er who couldn't be bothered to get off the couch.

I'm not sure that you understand why 1/6 was bad, then.

They're a threat to all of humanity at this point. Out there incubating new covid variants to stick it to the libs.

Not sure you understand the direct line from 11/8 to 1/6.
 
2021-09-11 9:29:14 AM  
All 9/11 led to was a disastrous 20-year war and an illegal invasion of an unrelated sovereign nation, leading to nearly 1,000,000 deaths, including over 364,000 civilian deaths. No big deal, I guess.

Perps, not sponsors. And you forgot to mention Pakistan.

Just this past week, we killed 10 innocent civilians - including 7 kids, you farkers - as part of our response to 9/11.

Abox: Not sure you understand the direct line from 11/8 to 1/6.


Of course I do.  But I if you want to pay that game, that line goes way father back.

The damage to America of 1/6 and the Big Lie is far greater than the rest of Trump's nightmare of a Presidency combined.

One event united us in common cause against a foreign foe, the other divided us and turned us against each other.
So yes, 1/6 was much worse than 9/11.

It's the same damage.  I agree it goes back to Rush Limbaugh and the birth of the spite right but the capper was Trump's election.  Everything since is fallout.
 
2021-09-11 9:55:11 AM  
Because it was treason. Because it was divisive. Because Trump had convinced idiots to do his dirty work. Because people showed they'd willingly, eagerly act upon obvious lies.
 
2021-09-11 9:55:44 AM  
I don't think there is a rally next Saturday in support of the perpetrators of the 9/11 attack.

Everything up to 1/6 could have been fixed.

That point was passed on 11/8.

If you are looking at the long term, 09/11 was a Knight/Bishop attack forcing the country into a Short Castle. 01/06 was the Pawns abandoning their posts.
 
2021-09-11 11:03:29 AM  
9/11 left me frightened, anxious and sad about what my country might do. 1/6 left me frightened, anxious and sad about what my country had become. The first one probably contributed to the second one.
 
2021-09-11 11:12:21 AM  
I just listened to GW Bush give his speech at the site of Flight 93 in Shanksville, PA. He put the 1/6 insurrectioinists in the same category as the 9/11 highjackers. Good for him.
 
2021-09-11 12:15:01 PM

11/08/16  made me ashamed ,discouraged, and mournful.  01/06/21  Made me pissed

/ If the idiot was a statesman or  have smart people in his cabinet to lead to something good I would eat crow. Yet, the  grifters, the agents of chaos, and assignments of nepotism proved that it was another nail in the coffin for this country. It isn't over  and  I hope  that the rails of our system can sustain. Yet, with the 18th coming I truly don't know. If it doesn't happen at the national capitol doesn't mean they won't push at the state capitols.
/ 9/11 left me numb  for a bit. Yet, I read PNAC before I went in the service. I chose the Navy as opposed to the Army. Dad used to work as a contractor for A.M. General. So I rode in Humvees and Troop trucks ( no guns on them) So, I'm suprised I didn't choose that route.

Also how has 1/6 impacted you besides in your own fevered mind? Life has gone on much better after 1/6 then it ever did after 9/11. Are we passing a "patriots" bill after 1/6?
You need to stop believing your own hype.

No, there was room to realize that Trump wasn't some bozo Washington elites could control somehow. After all, he didn't have any experience or knowledge in how anything in government worked and it would have been easy to shut him out if people chose to. Instead, well, look what we got. 1/6 was not only not showing buyers remorse but going all in on a shiatty President, willing to go sit in Hitlers Bunker when literally everyone was declaring they were free.

When was their room?  Trump campaigned and won on being a petulant infant and then presided as a petulant infant.  They held up his political ignorance as an asset from day one.  The only thing stopping 1/6 was a Trump win in 2020.

You probably should have warned people on election night. Specifically about 1/6, because you KNEW.

Agreed it wasn't inevitable, Trump could have won a second term.   What did you think was going to happen if he lost in 2020.  A graceful concession and dignified transfer of power?   In his entire public life Trump has never conceded or exhibited grace or dignity.  You figured he'd start then?

And all the peckerwoods crying big fat tears their dear leader was deposed.
