Once upon a time, George W. Bush was a president many Americans believed in. Soon after the horrific attacks of 9/11, he rallied the country and inspired hope. People were confident that the president would bring to justice those killers who brought so much destruction to our country.
But that was a long time ago.
Bush ended his presidency in disgrace, battered by a toxic media and unimpressive leadership. His faltering administration paved the way for Obama—who pushed radical socialist policies onto the country. And since then, Bush has seemed to flip sides, criticizing conservative values while seeking the praise of the liberal establishment.
Well, the former president made things much worse for himself on the 20th anniversary of 9/11. You’d expect Bush to speak on such an important day. But instead of reminding Americans of our shared values and the heroism of many who risked their lives, he insulted millions.
Many media and political figures expressed outrage online after former President George W. Bush appeared to use his speech commemorating the 20th anniversary of 9/11 to compare January 6 Capitol protesters to the Islamic terrorists who viciously attacked America, killing nearly three thousand innocents and wounding more than double that number…
“There is little cultural overlap between violent extremists abroad and violent extremists at home. But in it’s disdainful 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.” [Source: Breitbart]
It appears Bush used the time to call out those few morons who ran around like headless chickens on January 6. Those “rioters” entered the Capitol and did little damage. But compared them to evil killers who took 3000 Americans on September 11, 2001.
Meanwhile, the former president didn’t appear to say one word about the Black Lives Matter and Antifa rioters who burned down numerous U.S. cities over the summer of 2020. Those groups destroyed homes, black-owned businesses, and trashed many “national symbols” including several in D.C.
Yet Bush is trashing a group of idiots who caused no damage? Something’s not right. And the backlash was severe.
“There is no comparison between 9/11/2001 & 1/6/2021,” tweeted ACT for America, a grassroots movement “dedicated to preserving America’s culture, sovereignty and security.”
“George W Bush is an imbecile,” the group added…
“The only place Bush should be on 9/11 is answering to the American people for all his lies,” Washington Congressional candidate and retired Army Special Forces chief warrant officer Joe Kent wrote…
“George Bush is a fraud!” declared conservative comedian Terrence K. Williams…
“When Occupy Democrats is cheering George W Bush you might be confused if you haven’t been paying attention,” political correspondent Jack Posobiec wrote…
“My disgust over this stupidity knows no bounds,” conservative activist Ned Ryun wrote…
“After 20 years of a war on terror abroad, [George W. Bush] wants to now fight a new one against his fellow citizens,” journalist Greg Price wrote. [Source: Breitbart]
It’s pretty odd that, after battling the left during his eight years in office, Bush would now bow to them time and time again. We know he was a critic of President Trump, despite Trump’s impressive conservative track record. It seems, though, that this fool that cuddles with Michelle Obama is just a blind mouthpiece for the very worst of our society.
He no longer cares about defending conservatives. He doesn’t seem to be interested in honoring the 9/11, the event that marked his presidency. Instead, he kowtows to the very people who destroyed his administration and continue to mock him to this day.
All we can say is, sad.
