    George W. Bush compares violent domestic extremists to 9/11 terrorists

    W Bush launched Afghan war has ended after 20 years with a failed outcome (besides the Iraq war intervention he started that is not over still).
    His legacy damaged completely or he can redeem himself still?
    (plesae avoid controversial terms like FUBAR if you choose to opine on this topic)

    'Children of the same foul spirit.' George W. Bush compares violent domestic extremists to 9/11 terrorists

    Sarah Elbeshbishi | USA TODAY

    Former President George W. Bush compared domestic and foreign extremists Saturday, seeming to liken the insurrectionists who attacked the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 to the 9/11 hijackers and calling on Americans to confront the growing threats from both groups.
    “There is little cultural overlap between violent extremists abroad and violent extremists at home,” Bush said during a speech at the Flight 93 Memorial in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. “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.”
    His remarks Saturday marked 20 years since the 9/11 attacks, when United Airlines Flight 93 crashed into a field after passengers fought against the plane’s hijackers, causing it to miss its intended target in Washington, D.C.
    “It is our continuing duty to confront them,”Bush added.

    The Republican former president’s comments come eight months after the deadly insurrection at the U.S. Capitol when a mob of then-President Donald Trump's supporters tried to stop the certification of the 2020 election results establishing President Joe Biden’s election victory.

    Bush has been critical of the events that occurred eight months ago, saying the assault made him “sick to my stomach” and calling it an attack on democracy.
    The former president said in a March interview for the SXSW conference that he was disgusted “to see our nation’s Capitol being stormed by hostile forces.”
    Bush also didn’t mince words about the Republican Party in the months following the Jan. 6 attack, describing the party he once led as isolationist and nativist during an April interview with CBS news.
    “When it comes to the unity of America, those days seem distant from our own,” Bush said Saturday. “So much of our politics has become a naked appeal to anger, fear and resentment. That leaves us worried about our nation and our future together.”

    George is right. Killing random civilians to spread a political message is terrorism. FBI classifies it as domestic terrorism, but “white terrorism” is more precise. Many of the killers are lone-wolf losers indoctrinated to hate through the internet, just like Islamic terrorists. https://t.co/uyyjkoh1fR

    Damaged beyond all recognition? What is his legacy? I guess he's a great guy now since he dislikes Trump. Many have been calling the guy a war criminal for years. Look at the Iraqi war death count.

    Somewhat correct. The natural progession of extremist politics often ends in terrorism. Give the Trumpkins enough time, they are more like the current Taliban now, they could progress to Al Queda eventually.

    W Bush's legacy would have been fine if he didn't invade Iraq. Everything else he did was fairly reasonable.

    I suppose that they want to vindicate the policies of preemptive war and such.

    Oh, the government helped the January Sixth protestors kill three or four thousand people? No?

    Then, Dubya, I suggest you tune into Sesame Street and learn what the phrase "one of these things is not like the other" means.

    Don't worry. Sesame Street is video. You don't have to fret the camera will catch your lips moving while you read, the way you fretted while reading My Pet Goat.

    By the way, I'm the no vote. This confirms Dubya's legacy. Of the CIA, by the CIA and for the CIA.

    George W. Bush lasting legacy is a dead political dynasty.

    It was the working people of Europe who made that form of fascism happen.

    Is that what you see occurring today ?

    Stunning to see that Foxnews has gone from decades of Bush worship to this as Laura Ingraham claims that 'cynically clever Democrats' had Bush make these statements:

    Going by their track record (and of GOP for that matter), down the road similar future likely awaits current Foxnews/GOP hero Trump.

    Bush's lasting legacy would be the biggest blunder in US history - Iraq war.

    And behind those closed doors, Bush, and DJT who funded the globalist operation, shook hands and shared drink.

    LI couldn't/wouldn't/didn't touch the fact that Bush's dad Sr. promised the New World Order and here we are today.

    Why people still listen to that garbage on teevee is beyond me.


    And that SHILL Hannity: "you will not get it anywhere else". I'll take my RonPaulLibertyReport, thank you very much.

    Nobody has listened to the neocons' song and dance man for fourteen years. When I see the media pointing their cameras at him, I just assume their ratings are too high, and they're trying to fix it.

    So then it'll be another 14 years before the "ex-neocons" figure out this mess that we're in.

    Wait... "AI"... scrap what I said.

    I never had any idea what Dubya was trying to say, and I doubt he did either. All I know is Americans aren't just shopping at Banana Republic...

    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.
