Senator Suggests Jan. 6 Rioters, Who Killed NO ONE, Worse Than 9/11 Terrorists Who Killed Thousands

In an interview on CBS’s “Face the Nation” Warner suggested that the largely unarmed group of soccer moms and Joe Sixpacks who stormed the capitol that day — are a larger threat than the folks who murdered thousands on 9/11.

“I remember, as most Americans do, where they were on 9/11. I was in the middle of a political campaign and suddenly, the differences with my opponent seem very small in comparison and our country came together,” he said. “The stunning thing to me is here we are 20 years later, and the attack on the symbol of our democracy was not coming from terrorists, but it came from literally insurgents attacking the Capitol on Jan. 6.”

“I believe our intelligence community has performed remarkably. I think the threat of terror has diminished,” he said. “But I do worry about some of the activity in this country where the election deniers, the insurgency that took place on Jan. 6, that is something I hope we could see that same kind of unity of spirit.”

Despite the senator’s fear mongering and rhetoric, the vast majority of these folks weren’t domestic terrorists and judging by the lack of damage caused to the Capitol building and grounds, they weren’t much of a riotous mob either. The idea that Trump and his MAGA followers had any chance of overthrowing the U.S. government, or even that they thought they could, was a delusion. This was evidenced by the fact that thousands of them refused to even break the DC law that prohibits guns in the area.
