George W. Bush gave an embarrassing and highly political speech in Shanksville, PA on the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. The tone of the former President’s speech should have been about American Patriotism and unity. It should not have been about division and attacking political allies. Unfortunately, the latter is what his speech was all about. While Bush, Jr. was not specific in his political attack, the intended target was crystal clear. George W. Bush compared the 9/11 attackers to the people who “stormed” the U.S. Capitol on January 6th.
Thousands of people died as a result of the attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon back on September 11th, 2001. Anyone who was of age to remember anything happening around them know exactly where they were on that date. It changed the lives of Americans forever. Now when it comes to January 6th, only one person was killed and that was one of the so-called “insurrectionists” (read, protesters). None of the protesters were armed with guns and if they were, none of them fired a single shot. Most people do not remember what they were doing on that day. And quite frankly, most regular people do not care about January 6th. The Capitol riot is nothing more than a political talking point.
For George W. Bush to engage in partisan politics while using the backdrop of 9/11 to do so is shameful. One should expect nothing more or less of the warmongering deep state swamp dweller. Part of the reason the Republican Party (on a national level, at least) has had major struggles is because of certain groups of people blurring the lines between parties. Once politicians get high enough on the DC food chain, it becomes an “us” vs “them” sort of mentality. Politicians crown themselves as the elite and they pass legislation to “manage” their constituents who they view as their personal servants. Referring to this mentality as “unsustainable” would be nothing short of an understatement.
