Old Joe Biden said it during his ominous black-and-red speech on September 1: “Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic.” On Sunday, the twenty-first anniversary of the September 11, 2001, jihad terror attacks that killed nearly three thousand people, Chuck Todd on Meet the Press did his best to emphasize the alleged threat that Trump supporters pose to “our democracy,” by which Leftists always mean their own hegemony over the political process. Todd asked Vice President Kamala Harris: “Look, we’re at the twenty-first, um, marking, if you will, of the September 11th attacks. This was a foreign terrorist attacking our democracy, attacking this country. We’re now as a nation battling a threat from within. Is the threat equal or greater than what we faced after 9/11?”

Harris could have seized the opportunity to remind Todd and the nation that political dissent was not terrorism; instead, she took Todd’s comparison seriously, although she declined to take Todd’s bait and rank the alleged domestic terror threat higher than the jihad threat. “That’s an interesting question,” Harris parried. “Um, I have held many elected offices, as district attorney, attorney general, senator, now vice president, and there’s an oath that we always take, which is to defend and uphold our Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. We don’t compare the two in the oath, but we know they both can exist, and we must defend against it.” She was on board with Todd’s premise that the nation faced domestic enemies as formidable as the 9/11 terrorists, if not more so. Biden’s speech ten days before made it clear who those domestic enemies were.
One Twitter user responded with a succinct summation of what’s wrong with what Harris said: “Apparently I am now worse than an Islamic terrorist for just wanting my government to adhere to the Constitution and leave me alone.” Another quipped, “‘Threat from within?’ as he literally stares part of the problem in the face.”
Harris’ assumptions were not singular. Far-Left comedian Kathy Griffin, whose idea of comedy in 2017 was to distribute a photo of herself holding an effigy of Trump’s bloody severed head, tweeted on September 6, “If you don’t want a Civil War, vote for Democrats in November. If you do want Civil War, vote Republican.” When she was called out for this, Griffin resorted to the familiar tactic of projection: “You guys. The maga blue checks are at it again. Because they are constantly threatening Civil War, they are now trying to suggest that I am the one who is threatening a Civil War. Because you know, that’s my thing.” She had just threatened civil war two hours before this, but never mind.
On September 3, MSNBC guest Roland Martin, a Leftist pundit and motivational speaker, condemned Republicans as “evil” and declared, “We are at war with these people.” Also on MSNBC, on August 18, network host Tiffany Cross railed against news outlets that offered viewpoints opposing the dominant Left: “You have millions of people tuning into a propaganda network every night. And then, as if that were not bad enough, that’s an extremist network itself, you have these fringe pop-up outlets from OAN to Newsmax, then you have the social media component. That train has left the station. There is no ‘let’s deal with the rhetoric.’ At this point, I do think we have to have serious conversations around preparing for actual violence.”
Cross added, “People keep saying a civil war is coming — I would say a civil war is here. And I don’t mean to be hyperbolic. We can look at what has happened just in the past week alone since all this has happened. We’ve had two people try to declare war with FBI field offices. I don’t think, at this point, we’re going to pack up our bags and go home and sing kumbaya. So, from a law enforcement angle, what would you recommend the infrastructure of the country do? Because not everybody has the security of Capitol Hill.”
Harris and these Leftist pundits, however, are engaged in classic projection tactics. The threat of civil war is real, as is the possibility of racial conflict and general violence. But the threat is coming from their friends and allies on the Left, not the Right. It is the Left that is relentlessly pushing the nation into an ever-deeper crisis. If Harris wants to see a domestic enemy, she should look in the mirror.
Say no to teabaggers says
What gives you conservatives the right to defend yourself against the elected democratic presidential elites?
What gives you the right to decide who gets to defend, or not defend, themselves against anyone, elite or not.. At least we know know now you would have conservatives disarmed, especially when Garland’s fake FBI shows up at your door. Obviously the 2A is just for Communists.
Did you take a double dose of stupid just before this new format went live?
Jeff Bargholz says
The usual fake news media narrative from Tea Fagger. By rote.
Which scumbag network do you work for?
Angel Jacob says
Camel face is a low life hateful person.
Jeff Bargholz says
She does look like a camel, doesn’t she? No wonder they call her “Kamelho.”
Look at that fugly mug. Nasty.
Steven Brizel says
Any such comparison is obscene and demeans the memories of what happened on 9.11
Your statement is short, accurate and powerful… I am Canadian and I find that ANYBODY who makes such a comparison is clueless and is severely short on brain cells. Yet one more attempt by the Leftists to obliterate America’s history (or God forbid, learn from it).
Kamala does what she is told……both at the desk and under it.
David Ray says
A combination of low I.Q. combined with low-life slut yields painful results, and is even more painful to watch.
This affirmative action VP, is in desperate need of Q-cards to read from, than that other idiot playing press secretary.
The VP slut actually said our border is SECURE. Seriously!?
(One would think that with the endless hours this bitter VP has lied, that the practice would’ve finally produced some dividends.)
The dumb bitch should know by now that when border enforcement has been 100% abandoned for two years, that she needs to obfuscate & employ the tired accusation of “racism!”. (Perhaps if they sit her down & speak as slowly as they do to *Biden, they’ll get less botched interviews.)
Jeff Bargholz says
She’s too stupid to learn anything, not that the truth matters to the ugly cunt.
Steve Chavez says
IMAGINE IF TRUMP HAD WON? The Capitol, White House, Smithsonian, and cities across America would still be in FLAMES with gasoline given to Peaceful Protesters by members of the J6 Committee and the entire Democratic Party!
When Biden spoke of MAGA’s as violent threats to Democracy, he continued the MSM and Democrat message to demonize a movement as a “threat to Democracy.” IT’S THEIR NATIONAL CAMPAIGN MESSAGE. REPEAT IT A TRILLION TIMES AND PEOPLE WILL START TO BELIEVE IT AND THEN THEY’LL REPEAT IT! THAT’S THEIR CON!
During Biden’s speech, I wrote all over the net that someone needs to make a video of his speech and also showing the Democrat-supported and funded RIOTS, looting, burning down entire blocks, and ambushing and targeting “pigs in a blanket!” By morning, there was one that FB quickly censored. I couldn’t share it and by that afternoon, goners.
SOMEONE MAKE A ONE MINUTE COMMERICIAL OF THIS TO SHOW AMERICA, REMIND AMERICA, WHO THE REAL THREAT IS AND THAT THE DEMOCRATS ARE CON-ARTISTS AND HYPOCRITES!
Maybe end with the caption–“Who is the real threat?”
I remember just a few years back, when I was just a mere Deplorable; rather than the Revolutionary that I’ve become (been redefined as) !!
Walter Sieruk says
What a despicable deliberate outright liar Pamela Harris has proven herself to be.
That a falsehood speaking, and possibly irrational character Kamala Harris is. That terrible woman is, indeed, very irrational and must have serious cognition problems if she really believes that outlandishly absurd fool statement she said.
Furthermore, if VP Harris, by any means, by hook or by crook, actually does become the next US President then I’m glad that I’m no longer a young man and I’m also very sorry for the children of this country.
Abhorrent comparison like a Holocaust denial, the purpose is to minimize the true horror.
How does one compare an Islamic terrorist attack the slaughtered thousands of people, destroyed iconic buildings by hijacking airplanes that were flown into buildings with innocent passengers, attacked the Pentagon, and another plane saved by heroic passengers who prevented the terrorists from reaching their intended target – to angry American patriots who rightly questioned a stolen election! There is no comparison.
In fact, the only people murders on January 6 were two female Republicans by Capital Police thugs who were never punished. In their case, their lives don’t matter!
The DemoNazi Party is a malevolent organization born out of slavery and segregation. Is it any wonder the Evil they render in our country.
