âLook, if you obstruct a process, it’s about holding people accountable. If you organize riots, hold them accountable. But let’s be clear here: when they try to act like this, it’s something like the 9/11 attacks, it’s an insult to the people who entered these buildings, âRon DeSantis said in a recent speech. to the media. Her jibe referred to Harris’ highly controversial remark on January 6, 2022, where she referred to the Pearl Harbor bombing, the September 11 attack and the Capitol riots as horrific tragedies of similar magnitude.

We cannot let our future be decided by those who are determined to do so. silence our voices, overthrow our votes and peddle lies and misinformation by a radical faction that may be newly reborn, but whose roots run deep and old. “
