I really hope this trend of exaggeration doesn’t continue.
Vice President Kamala Harris kicked off the Biden administration’s remarks on the first anniversary of the January 6, 2021 Capitol riot by comparing it to the bombing of Pearl Harbor in 1941, and the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.
“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. Dates that occupy not only a place in our calendars, but a place in our collective memory. December 7th, 1941. September 11, 2001. And January 6th, 2021.”
More than 2,400 Americans died in the Pearl Harbor attack, and nearly 3,000 Americans died in the 9/11 terror attacks.
Harris, who participated in a Black Lives Matter protest outside the White House in May 2020 just hours after rioters attacked police around the building, injuring dozens, assaulting journalists, and forcing the evacuation of the president into a bunker, declared of the Capitol rioters: “What they sought to degrade and destroy was not only a building, hallowed as it is. What they were assaulting were the institutions, the values, the ideals that generations of Americans have marched, picketed, and shed blood to establish and defend.”
The Vice President, who spread claims of Russian collusion with Trump, warned Americans about “peddling lies and information by some radical faction that may be resurgent, but whose roots run old and deep,” hinting at Donald Trump, and suggesting a connection between Trump supporters and extremism.

personally I think jan 6 whould of been just laid to rest and not brought up to the public. what is the reason to celebrate jan 6. what did you all gain by having speaches etc. on something a yer ago. we dont need to be reminded and my opinion is that this is a policial think to put trump down and what about nancy pelosis who should of had national guard there it was her job and it was brought up that she should do this. I would be aware as people are getting tired of everyone putting trump down. a man was stopped in iowa and he was on his was to D.c. to kill policitians. it was all on our news and our internet. and why should trump be accued of everything when look at what all biden has done to our country. bidens speach is also terrible. he could of stopped it if nancy wasnt going to
Please you could had saved your speech. Trump will never ever accept that he was defeated by Our President Joe Biden. He (trump) thinks he’s Teflon.
dunb ass spook !!!
Here we go again with racist comments. Wow really. If she’s a “spook” then what should you be called? I know exactly what you should be called. But I have more decency than you. So I’ll keep it to myself. But if you are so smart, then you might know what I mean.
I thought she was an ignoramus from jump street. Now I am certain. God Bless Americs
And I ask who you are? Cause your last name sure doesn’t look like you should be making any kind of American remarks.
Have her visit the Arizona. Not the memorial, the ship itself.
