Journalist Glenn Greenwald slammed Senator Chuck Schumer as “obscene and reckless” for comparing yesterday’s Capitol Hill riot to Pearl Harbor, an attack which killed over 2,400 Americans.

Following the riot, during which Trump supporters stormed the Capitol building, Schumer gave a speech on the Senate floor in which he said January 6 was a date which would “live in infamy,” mirroring President Franklin Roosevelt’s speech after the Pearl Harbor attack.

“It is very, very difficult to put into words what has transpired today. I have never lived through or even imagined an experience like the one we have just witnessed in this Capitol. President Franklin Roosevelt set aside Dec. 7, 1941, as a day that will live in infamy. Unfortunately, we can now add Jan. 6, 2021, to that very short list of dates in American history that will live forever in infamy,” said Schumer, before going on to label rioters “domestic terrorists.”

Greenwald shot back by lambasting Schumer for his hyperbolic comparison.

“Obviously, it’s obscene to compare yesterday’s events at the Capitol to 9/11 or (as Schumer did) Pearl Harbor: obscene and reckless,” tweeted Greenwald.

The journalist went on to urge Americans to exercise “restraint and deliberation” in response to yesterday’s events.

The attack on Pearl Harbor killed over 2,400 Americans and wounded a further 1,178.

Four people tragically lost their lives as a result of yesterday’s chaos, all of whom it appears were Trump supporters who stormed the building, including a 14-year Air Force veteran who was shot in the neck by police.

To compare what happened yesterday to Pearl Harbor or 9/11 is clearly demented and part of a ploy to exploit the riot to justify another political crackdown.

DC and New York Hit With Bomb Scares Within a Week of DHS Threat Bulletin

Feds warned of anti-government attacks.

Less than a week after the Department of Homeland Security issued a bulletin saying that anti-government extremists angry at COVID measures could be preparing attacks, DC and New York were both hit with bomb scares.

Last Friday, the DHS warned that there was a “heightened” risk of attacks carried out by domestic extremists motivated by their opposition to lockdown measures and anti-government sentiment.

Earlier today, a man from North Carolina parked a truck outside the Library of Congress on Capitol Hill and began telling authorities that the vehicle contained an explosive device.

The man began filming a Facebook livestream explaining how he was a an ex-serviceman, but the social media site quickly removed the video.

In a video of the man’s statements posted to Twitter, the suspect rambles about wanting to speak to Joe Biden while threatening, “If you shoot me, 2 and a half blocks are going with me.”

Police apparently know the identity of the suspect but don’t know his motive, although he reportedly said he is “ready to die for the cause.”

According to Andrea Mitchell, the man has a criminal history and has expressed “anti-government views.”

Meanwhile, New York’s Times Square has also been evacuated after an object resembling a “cookie tin” was thrown at people in Father Duffy Square.

In light of the bomb threat in DC, authorities chose to lock down the area and told people to stay away.

Although the bomb threat in New York looks likely to be harmless, the situation in DC is precarious and ongoing.

Capitol Police Officer Who Gave Emotional January 6 Testimony is Anti-Trump, Defended Kenosha Riots

Has a history of far-left statements.

The Capitol Police Officer who gave emotional testimony during which he claimed he was more frightened during the January 6 riot than during his deployment in Iraq has a history of anti-Trump statements and tacitly supported the BLM riots in Kenosha.

Well, imagine my shock.

Harry Dunn made headlines yesterday after giving teary-eyed testimony during which he claimed that he was called the n-word by Trump supporters while on patrol on that infamous day.

“You hear that, guys, this nigger voted for Joe Biden!” said a woman in a pink “MAGA” shirt, according to Dunn. “Boo! Fucking nigger!”

Dunn also asserted that he was more frightened of Trump supporters than any insurgents, terrorists or IED’s he may have risked encountering while stationed in Iraq.

“On 6 January, for the first time, I was more afraid to work at the Capitol than during my entire army deployment to Iraq,” he said.

However, it’s now come to light that Dunn tacitly praised the Black Lives Matter riots in Kenosha that caused $2 million in property damage and destroyed a community.

“Why is murder an appropriate response to property damage but property damage isn’t an appropriate response to murder?” Dunn responded to a Tucker Carlson tweet last August.

The officer also referred to President Trump as “the racist in chief” while praising Ilhan Omar.

“Dunn also criticized members of Trump’s administration for covering for the president and regularly hassled Fox News’s Laura Ingraham and Carlson,” reports the Federalist.

“Just a couple of weeks before he gave his testimony, Dunn also cheered on known Russia hoaxer Democrat Rep. Eric Swalwell for telling the “truth” about the Capitol riot and condemned Fox News for not having him on as a guest,” writes Jordan Davidson.

All of this underscores the fact that Dunn’s testimony was completely biased and based on his own extreme prejudice, while his crocodile tears were likely nothing more than a pantomime performance for the cameras.
