George W. Bush gave a speech today at a memorial for Flight 93 on 9/11/2001 in Pennsylvania. In it, he compares the 9/11 terrorists to “domestic terrorists” in the United States. He mentions destroying national symbols, which may sound to many like he is talking about Antifa or Black Lives Matter.
But most people on both sides of the aisle reacting to it on Twitter today seem to think he is talking about January 6th rioters or angry Trump supporters. Many feel that Bush’s pro-war stance from twenty years ago didn’t help fix things and arguably led to many more issues.
Many Republicans today no longer see him as the hero they may have thought he was back then. Many now look to former President Donald Trump, who as a private citizen helped on 9/11, and stood against Bush’s “forever wars” (as some refer to them as), instead.
“NOW – George W. Bush compares “domestic extremists” to Islamist terrorists in his 9/11 speech: “They are children of the same foul spirit, and it is our continuing duty to confront them…”

Many leftists praised Bush’s speech. It’s almost as if in twenty years, the left now loves GWB instead of hating him, and many smart right-wingers have figured out what he may really be all about.
The New York Times reports in part:
Former President George W. Bush commemorated the 20th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on Saturday at the Flight 93 National Memorial in Pennsylvania, recalling a time of American unity and drawing a sharp contrast with the present-day divisiveness of the country’s politics.
Mr. Bush, who was joined by the former first lady, Laura Bush, was in his first year as president when the attacks took place.
“For those too young to recall that clear September day, it is hard to describe the mix of feelings we experienced,” Mr. Bush said at a ceremony held at the memorial. “There was horror at the scale of destruction, and awe at the bravery and kindness that rose to meet it. There was shock at the audacity of evil, and gratitude for the heroism and decency that opposed it.”
He added that “the actions of an enemy revealed the spirit of a people, and we were proud of our wounded nation.”
“There is little cultural overlap between violent extremists abroad and violent extremists at home,” he continued. “But in their disdain for 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.”
In his remarks, Mr. Bush paid tribute to the passengers and crew members of Flight 93, which crashed in a field after those on board fought back against the hijackers and diverted them from their intended target. “Many who are now alive owe a vast, unconscious debt to the defiance displayed in the skies above this field,” he said.
It’s funny how the things that really happened in history never changes, but the way the stories get told change over time. Perhaps it’s not actually funny, but rather a little bit scary. Please never forget 9/11 and the evil people who perpetrated it, from your friends at Media Right News.
