The New 9/11
While national unity and patriotism felt after 9/11 have long since left the country, the zeal has stayed.
21 years later, strong emotions about 9/11 point inward
Twenty-one years ago, Americans were united behind a common enemy whose attack on New York’s Twin Towers killed almost 3,000 people. While national unity and patriotism felt after 9/11 have long since left the country, the zeal has stayed as one political class labels a large portion of the population as an extension of the threat faced in 2001. For them, January 6 is the new 9/11.
On the 20th anniversary of the attacks, while condemning the extremists behind 9/11, former President George W. Bush implied that Trump supporters present at the Capitol riot pose a similar threat. He had seen “growing evidence that the dangers to our country can come not only across borders but from violence that gathers within” and emphasized America’s duty to “confront them.”
In an interview addressing 9/11 yesterday, former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton described the current conservative movement as a “dangerous threat” similar to the one the country faced in 2001. President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris both nodded to America’s right wing yesterday during their comments on the September 11 attacks. Other government officials agreed.
Big picture: Instead of encouraging unity against real, foreign threats, political leaders are exploiting the intense emotions felt after 9/11 to demonize half the population and divide the country. This can be seen through Biden’s recent rhetoric labeling the oppositional political movement as a significant existential threat that must be stopped.

The DOJ’s persecution of January 6 defendants
The government is perverting the law to punish peaceful protesters.
What’s happening: Since the January 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol by Donald Trump supporters last year, federal courts have repeatedly equated peaceful protesters with violent criminals. Through an assortment of politically zealous prosecutors, judges, and jurors, January 6 defendants have had the justice system rigged against them.
The government’s flimsy charge: Congress began to evacuate on January 6 when rioters first broke into the Capitol. The majority of protesters arrived much later, and police allowed them inside to protest. The government has charged many of these peaceful demonstrators with the same felony charge given to rioters: “obstruction of an official proceeding.” This statute has never been used before in the context of political protest.
Juries for January 6 cases consist entirely of Washington, D.C., residents, over 90 percent of which voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016 and Joe Biden in 2020. Polling shows that 95 percent of D.C. residents are either "somewhat familiar" or "very familiar" with the Capitol “insurrection” and that 54 percent get their knowledge from national news sources, many of which have lied or manipulated details of the event.
No way out: After over a year of arrests, investigations, indictments, and sentences, federal courts have developed a reputation for ruthlessness toward January 6 defendants. None have been acquitted by a jury, and some have received harsh sentences for nonviolent offenses. One decided to commit suicide rather than face his punishment.
