17 years ago the country changed forever when Muslim terrorists carried out the worst terror attack in our history. Everyone remembers where they were when the planes hit the towers and there’s just no way to properly describe the fear and sadness that we all felt.
9/11 was an event that should be bigger than politics. We are all Americans regardless of what we believe politically and there’s no reason to use tragedies like 9/11 to divide us.
Unfortunately, the Democratic Party wrote the book on politicizing tragedy for political gain.
Nicholas Haros lost his mother on 9/11 and he’s had just about enough of Democrats politicizing the tragedy. He just called out Pelosi, Cory Booker, and others in epic fashion.
Son who lost mother in World Trade attacks goes off-script to attack Pelosi, Booker & Brennan for politicizing 9/11
“Please stop using the bones & ashes of our loved ones as props in your political theater. Let’s not trivialize them or us. It hurts”

From The Daily Caller:
Nicholas Haros, who lost his mother in the attacks, was one of the volunteers reading the names of victims at Ground Zero in Tuesday’s memorial.
After completing his list of names and paying tribute to his late mother, Haros slammed Democrats Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Cory Booker and a member of the media for using the 9/11 victims as “props.”
From Washington Examiner:
“This year, a representative of the House referred to our loss as just another incident,” he said after he finished reading off several names. That’s a reference to Pelosi, who noted the “9/11 incident” while talking to reporters in June.
“This year, a network commentator said the president’s performance in Helsinki was a traitorous act as was 9/11,” Haros added.
“And last week, a senator attacked a Supreme Court nominee and called him a racist for alleged comments after 9/11,” he said. That’s an apparent reference to Booker, who released emails that he said show Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh supported racial profiling, although the emails didn’t show Kavanaugh supporting that practice.
“Stop, stop,” Haros said after listing those examples. “Please, stop using the bones and ashes of our loved ones as props in your political theater.”
“They’re lives, sacrifices and death are worth so much more. Let’s not trivialize us or us, it hurts,” he said
We can all agree that he’s absolutely right. None of us should ever try and politicize a tragedy like 9/11.
Shame on Nancy Pelosi and all the other Democrats who don’t get that.
