George W Bush on 9/11: “We have seen growing evidence that the dangers to our country can come not only across borders but from violence that gathers within … they are children of the same foul spirit and it is our continuing duty to confront them.” pic.twitter.com/TGvHoCbjJV— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) September 11, 2021
Much like the general who presides over a global empire calls you the “fascist,” the war criminal who killed hundreds of thousands of people accuses YOU of being the violent one https://t.co/Csk4zaG18J— Occidental Dissent (@DissentOcc) September 11, 2021
After 9/11, Ashli Babbitt asked her mom to sign a waiver so she could enroll in the military at age 17. After graduation in 2003, she went into the Air Force. She had 8 tours overseas including Afghanistan.— Julie Kelly ?? (@julie_kelly2) September 11, 2021

Liberals swooned emotionally all day yesterday for George W. Bush because they crave his War on Terror, but just want it unleashed domestically at their political opponents.— Glenn Greenwald (@ggreenwald) September 12, 2021
Hearing Bush link 9/11 with 1/6, and compare his War on Terror with their new one, was ecstasy for them. pic.twitter.com/mvxSORVIjS
Having the US Government treat the American Right the same way as it spent the last 20 years treating alleged "Muslim extremists" is — along with more censorship of the internet — one of the top political priorities of US liberalism, whose authoritarianism cannot be overstated. pic.twitter.com/363T0m934z— Glenn Greenwald (@ggreenwald) September 12, 2021

The NSA has been given billions of dollars a year to spy on the US & the world. Its primary (ostensible) purpose is to protect the country by detecting planned attacks against the US.— Glenn Greenwald (@ggreenwald) September 12, 2021
The head of that agency in the months leading up to 9/11, and on 9/11 itself, was @GenMhayden.

We responded to this last night on The Political Cesspool.
The worst president of our lifetimes gave a speech on the 20th anniversary of 9/11 to explain the connection between his Global War on Terrorism (GWOT) and how that project should now be turned inward by the national security state to target American citizens as “evil doers” and “terrorists.” As many of you will probably vividly recall, this is what the critics said would happen at the time. Eventually, the national security state would turn its attention from Muslims to White males.
Note: Joe was having another one of those days in which he faded in and out and was lost in senility. Even on his worst days, he is not as bad as George W. Bush though.
