Video: George W. Bush Compares Al-Qaeda To Jan. 6 Protesters On 9/11 Anniversary

‘There is little cultural overlap between violent extremists abroad and violent extremists at home,’ says former president.

Former President George W. Bush, the architect of the disastrous decades-long Middle East wars, compared Al-Qaeda to conservative “violent extremists” on the 20th anniversary of 9/11.

Yes, really.

Bush made the shameful remarks during a 9/11 ceremony at the Flight 93 National Memorial in Shanksville, Pennsylvania on Saturday, surrounded by fellow globalist neocons and warmongers like Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

“We have seen growing evidence that the dangers to our country can come not only across borders, but from violence that gathers within,” Bush said.

“There is little cultural overlap between violent extremists abroad and violent extremists at home. But there is disdainful pluralism in their disregard for human life, in their determination to defile national symbols,” he said, presumably referring to the January 6 protest.

“They are children of the same foul spirit and it is our continuing duty to confront them,” he added.

Speaking of disregard for human life, Bush’s catastrophic war in Iraq – which was launched based on a “weapons of mass destruction” lie – resulted in the deaths of 4,450 U.S. service members and over 1 million Iraqis.

Bush’s comparison is rich given Joe Biden essentially gifted the Taliban $85 billion in military weapons, vehicles, and equipment amid his incompetent withdrawal from Afghanistan.

By contrast, many January 6 protesters – who simply wanted representation regarding the stolen 2020 election – are still languishing in solitary confinement despite committing no violent crime.
