Where is the anger over Jan. 6 insurrection?

On Sept. 11, 2001, terrorists attacked our country, destroying the Trade Towers and damaging the Pentagon. The result was our country declaring a war on terror and bombing and invading Afghanistan. Our country came together to reject the terrorist ideals that led to this happening.

On Jan. 6, 2021, terrorists attacked the very seat of democracy in our country, invading the House of Representatives in Washington, D.C., and attempting to overthrow an election for which every case brought before courts to dispute the results ended in failure.

Let me state I am neither a Republican nor am I a Democrat – both turn my stomach as neither truly represents in my opinion the true American principles espoused in our Constitution.

Where is the outrage? Where is the justified anger? Where is the determination never to allow this disgrace to happen again? Hypocrites who wrap themselves in our national flag do not deserve to call themselves patriots.
