LETTER: Jan. 6 attack worse than Pearl Harbor and 9/11

It is disheartening to me that there are people who find comparing Jan. 6, 2021 to Pearl Harbor or 9/11 disgusting. In my opinion, Jan. 6 was worse than either of those attacks.

Pearl Harbor was an attack on our country by a foreign nation, and 9/11 was an attack by foreign actors. Jan. 6 was a planned attack on our nation perpetrated by our own home-grown domestic terrorists and supported by our own elected representatives based on an absolute falsehood.

What could be more disgusting than an attack by a nation’s own citizens on one of the most fundamental rights of a democratic republic?
