Lest We Furr-get: There Was A 9/11 Before There Was 9/11
Although Donald Drumpf apparently missed it, you may have heard that the mother of one of the four Americans who died in Benghazi on September 11, 2012, spoke at the Republican Convention and blamed Hillary Clinton for the death of her son.
She's completely wrong, of course. But because Democrats are nicer than Republicans, we want to tell Patricia Smith that we're very sorry for her loss. We're sure she's devastated, and we hope that she finds a healthier outlet for her grief.
But we keep wondering about the two 9/11s. In 2012, we lost four people. In 2001? Three thousand.
Hmmm: Four people... 3,000 people. How is it that the right wingers are so worked up about the four in 2012, but don't care about the 3,000 in 2001?
Since no Republican has ever called for an investigation into how the Worst Person Who's Ever Lived handled the Presidential Daily Brief of August 6, 2001 — let alone the lies his entire Administration told to invade a country that had nothing to do with the first 9/11 — it seems that the GOP is pretty okay with the fact that all those people died. Just sayin'. We cats HISS.
