Vice President Kamala Harris spoke from Statuary Hall at the U.S. Capitol in an address delivered as part of a commemoration of the anniversary of the protest in which demonstrators entered the Capitol building, interrupting the counting of electoral votes. Harris, who was vice president-elect and a sitting senator at the time, included Jan. 6 as one of three dark days in American history. Harris stated that the date would live on in the country’s memory, likening it to the dates of the Pearl Harbor attack and the 9/11 terror attacks. Harris continued on that the protestors sought to attack “the institutions, the values, the ideals that generations of Americans have marched, picketed, and shed blood to establish and defend.”
Harris continued: “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”.
“Certain dates echo throughout history,” Harris said. “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.”
Harris stated that the events of January 6 reflect both the “fragility” and “strength” of American democracy, as the attack on the Capitol and the challenge to the election ultimately failed. She praised the lawmakers from both parties who returned afterward to finish the vote, counting for their “resolve” and “loyalty.”
Before pointing out the need for Congress to pass new voting legislation, the vice president questioned whether Jan. 6, 2021, will someday be viewed as the beginning of the end of American democracy.
“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,” she added. “The answer to whether we will meet that test resides where it always has resided in our country: with you.”
Harris obviously didn’t take note in July 2021, when Fox News reported that 9/11 victims’ families were outraged over media claims Capitol riot was worse ‘to score points politically.’
Riches and other family members of victims told Fox News they’re disgusted when they hear of the two events even being compared, let alone suggesting the riot, while stunning and disgraceful, was the darker day.
When retired New York Deputy Fire Chief Jim Riches speaks about it, the anger and sadness in his voice is unmistakable.
It’s been nearly 20 years since his son Jimmy was among the 343 New York firefighters to die at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. The 9/11 terrorist attacks by Al Qaeda killed nearly 3,000 people, launched wars, and changed the world.
But since the January 6 Capitol riot, when a mob of Donald Trump supporters stormed the building to disrupt certification of Joe Biden’s election victory, some commentators and reporters have claimed it’s not just on par with the 9/11 attacks, but actually even worse.
“It’s a shame,” he said. “Are they kidding me? Three thousand people died, plus we have more people dying from the air that was down there … They’re comparing it to score points politically. The families are really [angry]. When I talk to them, when they compare it to that, they find that outrageous.”
It’s become a trend in some liberal circles since the riot to liken it to 9/11, citing that it was a direct attack on the democratic process. The widely condemned assault came on the heels of weeks of unsubstantiated claims of voter fraud by Trump and his supporters. Rioters smashed windows, beat law enforcement officers, and were heard voicing threats at Vice President Mike Pence, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and other politicians.
We’ve chosen three videos for the sake of comparing Jan 6th to Pearl Harbor and 9-11.
The first video was taken at the start of the “Capitol Insurrection” (or, as many believe, the war of the Deep State and Democrats against Trump and his supporters). The following two videos show the actions that preceded the start of two major wars involving the US and foreign nations that VP Harris compared to January 6th.
The first video shows Capitol Police allowing protesters to enter the grounds outside of the Capitol:

The photo below shows a Capitol Police officer taking a selfie with a protester inside the Capitol. After watching all three videos, ask yourself, was anyone at Pearl Harbor or the Twin Towers in NYC taking selfies with Kamakazi pilots or members of the Al Qaeda terror group responsible for 9-11?
Here’s a video showing the surprise attack launched on Pearl Harbor by Japan:
The horrific 9-11 terror attack was captured by several news stations and individuals from nearby buildings. The video below is a compilation of chilling footage of the worst terror attack on American soil on September 11, 2001.
Vice President Harris says, ‘I wonder, how will Jan. 6 will be remembered in the years ahead?’ I wonder how her comparison of American history will be remembered?
