Remember last week when Vice President Kamala Harris had the audacity to compare the Capitol riot to the events that transpired at Pearl Harbor? Well, she’s definitely paying for that asinine remark now, as she was just torched by one of the most influential podcasters alive.
According to the Washington Examiner, comedian and podcast legend Joe Rogan excoriated Harris during a show this week, calling Harris’ comparison of the two events “completely insane.”
“Certain dates echo throughout history, including dates that instantly remind all who have lived through them where they were and what they were doing when our democracy came under assault,” Harris said on the one-year anniversary of the Capitol riots.
She added: “Dates that occupy not only a place on our calendars but a place in our collective memory: Dec. 7, 1941, Sept. 11, 2001, and Jan. 6, 2021.”
Rogan, who’s probably most well-known for not holding anything back in his opinions, made clear that Harris was completely in the wrong for comparing the two events, because there’s literally no comparison, whatsoever.
“This is complete insanity. Look, Jan. 6 was embarrassing. It was pathetic. It was confusing to me. Cause there are parts of it that confused me — the parts where you have these clear agent provocateurs in the audience calling for people to go into the Capitol,” Rogan began.
He added: “There’s video of cops opening up barriers. What is that? Why did they do that? Has there ever been an explanation of that?
Rogan went on to call Harris’ comparison “insane.”
Rogan’s not alone
Harris was slammed by numerous high-level politicians, including by Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), who relayed his disgust with her comments during an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity.
“The most disgusting part of the day was what you referenced in your monologue, where the vice president of the United States says Jan. 6 was the equivalent to Pearl Harbor, was the equivalent to 9/11,” Jordan said.
The Ohio lawmaker added: “Tell that to the granddaughter whose grandfather gave his life on D-Day. Tell that to the son whose dad was one of the firefighters who went into the tower on 9/11.”
Democrats are clearly holding on to the Capitol riots as long as they can, in order to convince the American public that “domestic extremism” is on the rise. At the same time, they’re completely ignoring the deadly, destructive Black Lives Matter-led riots that literally destroyed U.S. cities over the summer of 2020.
