For most Americans, the 20th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks marked a solemn and sober occasion. It was a day to remember the deadliest foreign attack ever made on American soil, and a day to remember many heroes who gave their lives saving others. It was also a day to consider the many ways America has gone astray in the two decades since.
But our demented ruling class think differently than the plebs they govern. They used the 20th anniversary of 9/11 to mount a full-court propaganda press to portray their fellow Americans as terrorist threats. They even trotted out two aging, past-their-prime Twin Towers of American politics to push their malevolent narrative.
Never let a crisis go to waste, as they say…
Hillary Clinton set the tone on the CBS morning show.

Breitbart published a transcript:
Former Secretary of State and 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said Friday on “CBS This Morning” that she was “more concerned about internal threats” like “what we saw on January 6.”
Co-host Gayle King said, “Madam Secretary, we have a new home here on Times Square. As thrilled as I am to be here, I admit I’m a little nervous sometimes. I’m looking around more than I normally do. I think a lot of Americans are concerned about a threat risk here in the United States because of our withdrawal from Afghanistan. Do you share those concerns?”
Clinton said, “I think you always have to be vigilant, Gayle, and certainly that unfortunately comes with living in the world as we know it today. But actually, I am more concerned about internal threats. We always have to be aware of, and protect against, external threats. But what really is tearing our country apart and threatening our democracy is what we saw on January 6th. And I unfortunately have seen so much of that kind of continuing divisiveness and hatred and ideological attitudes about our democracy, about each other.”
She added, “So yes, we have to be constantly aware of potential damage, attacks, threats from outside. But I think every American, regardless of where you stand on the political spectrum should be as worried if not more right now about when we’re doing to ourselves. You know, we can take anything, we can overcome anything, we can come back from anything if we’re united. But if we are going to continue to hate each other, scapegoat each other, try to undermine each other, go after our institutions, our voting system, yeah, then we are putting ourselves at great risk. And that’s what keeps me up at night these days.”
President Bush followed up with an atrocious speech in Shanksville.

9/11’s Twentieth Anniversary would be a good time to reflect on the bloody failures of the George W. Bush administration. There could be a frank discussion on how Bush took America’s greatest moment of national unity since World War 2, and channeled it into two disastrous overseas wars while greatly empowering intelligence agencies at home. There could be discussion on how, instead of asking Americans to sacrifice, Bush urged them to go shopping and launched a federal spending spree that has never stopped. There could even be a frank discussion on how Bush failed to stop the attacks themselves, which might be related to Bush explicitly running on a pledge to scale back racial profiling in airports.
But instead, today’s anniversary was a celebration of Bush. Not for his actions two decades ago of course. No, the celebration was because Bush related 9/11 to January 6.
Bush dropped two cracked-out globalist narrative jaw-droppers in his speech:
When it comes to the unity of America, those days seem distant from our own. A malign force seems at work in our common life that turns every disagreement into an argument and every argument into a clash of cultures. So much of our politics has become a naked appeal to anger, fear, and resentment. That leaves us worried about our nation and our future together.
And we have seen growing evidence that the dangers to our country can come not only across borders, but from violence that gathers within. There is little cultural overlap between violent extremists abroad and violent extremists at home. But in their disdain for pluralism, in their disregard for human life, in their determination to defile national symbols, they are children of the same foul spirit. And it is our continuing duty to confront them.
The Washington Post celebrated Bush playing his role in an obviously coordinated narrative hitjob:
Few Americans expected wisdom from former president George W. Bush on the 20th anniversary of 9/11. Even fewer expected wisdom on the current state of our politics. That is nevertheless what we got from his remarks in Shanksville, Pa., today.
In perhaps the most important words spoken in his political career, Bush in his remarks at the crash site of United Airlines Flight 93 drew a straight line between the 9/11 terrorists and the 1/6 terrorists. “We have seen growing evidence that the dangers to our country can come not only across borders but from violence that gathers within,” he said. “There is little cultural overlap between violent extremists abroad and violent extremists at home. But in their disdain for pluralism, in their disregard for human life, in their determination to defile national symbols, they are children of the same foul spirit.”
The Capitol, of course, was the suspected target of Flight 93; the heroes on board that plane spared the lawmakers and others who worked there from the fate of occupants of the twin towers and the Pentagon. The 1/6 terrorists breached the building the 9/11 terrorists could not. Both the 9/11 terrorists and the domestic 1/6 terrorists sought to destroy our democracy in service to a crazed ideology of intolerance.
The rest of the lying media clearly got the narrative memo in advance.
BREAKING: President Bush rips Trump’s insurrectionists in a 9/11 speech, saying “there’s growing evidence that the dangers to our country can come not only across borders, but from violence that gathers within,” and it’s our “duty to confront them.” RT IF YOU AGREE WITH BUSH!

I’m not one to whitewash Bush’s legacy, but seriously: good for him for saying this. Linking January 6th and 9/11 is important, highlighting how Americans have tragically become the gravest danger to our democracy. https://t.co/hSlslkiFVA

Over and over again, on Twitter, on news websites, on TV, and on your smartphone, the Regime propaganda poured out. To the extent 9/11 matters at all today to these craven psychopaths, it’s because it allegedly exposes modern American conservatives as the real threat to the country. Of course, Apple was recruited by somebody (who?) to amplify the narrative:
And on and on, it went.
At least one Democratic politician claimed that 1/6, where the only violent death was Lt. Michael Byrd shooting an unarmed Ashli Babbitt, was worse than 3,000 dead Americans butchered on Sept. 11.
9/11/2001 ceased being the worst thing that happened to America in my lifetime.
It’s really weird and painful to process and say that.
But it’s the truth.
And quite frankly… it’s not even close.

Twenty years after 9/11, that is what one of America’s greatest tragedies has been reduced to. For America’s ruling regime, the atrocity is only worth remembering at all as a weapon to attack their current enemies. Instead of a solemn warning against making the same mistakes, 9/11 has become a call to action, to repeat the same abuses of the post-9/11 era, but aimed squarely at America’s own citizens.
This time, however, there will be no concern on the part of the Justice department to avoid “backlash” against MAGA. From the DOJ:
The Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice has placed a priority on prosecuting bias crimes and incidents of discrimination against Muslims, Sikhs, and persons of Arab and South-Asian descent, as well as persons perceived to be members of these groups. The Division also has engaged in extensive outreach efforts to these communities to educate people about their rights and available government services.
President Bush will not reach out to the tens of millions of Trump supporters with the message that MAGA is a political movement of peace. From September 18, 2001, when the towers were still smoldering:
Trying to stave off an anti-Arab backlash, President Bush visited the Islamic Center here yesterday, saying Muslims should be treated with respect because “the face of terror is not the true faith of Islam.”
After an hourlong meeting with Muslim community leaders, Bush said last week’s murderous acts by Islamic terrorists “violate the fundamental tenets of the Islamic faith.”
In keeping with custom, Bush removed his shoes before entering the mosque.
Bush’s remarks came in the aftermath of several weekend killings that are being investigated as possible hate crimes against those of Middle Eastern origin, as well as hundreds of reports of anti-Muslim and anti-Arab harassment and discrimination.
The last “war on terror” focused on “radical Islam” had to be mediated through the dictates of political correctness. Not so for the War on Terror 2.0, which is and will be directed against predominantly white, Christian, heterosexual conservatives. The Regime has no mercy and no consideration for such deplorables. The only question is whether the Regime will temporarily hide its contempt for patriot Americans when it is time to call them up to fight its next pointless war.
85% of combat deaths in Afghanistan were White Americans, as combat arms and the special operations components are much whiter than the US general population.
