Washington state congressional candidate Joe Kent slammed Vice President Kamala Harris on Thursday for comparing the January 6 riot at the US Capitol to the bombing of Pearl Harbor and the 9/11 terrorist attacks by jihadists.
Joining Tucker Carlson Tonight on Fox News, Joe Kent, a former green beret and gold star husband, said he found the Vice President's remarks offensive.
"I was deeply offended because it's absolutely appalling and just completely ridiculous. But what I want people to realize is exactly what she's doing," Kent warned. "What she and Joe Biden are doing is...they're taking very powerful imagery and they're saying that the attack on Pearl Harbor, the attack on 9/11, is the same thing that took place on January 6."
"Because that allows people to compare Trump supporters to Nazi's, to actual members of Al-Qaeda. And with that imagery comes the justification to turn the tools of the state against them," Kent explained, who is running as a Republican in Washington state's third congressional district.
"These are very deliberate words. We've seen this playbook before. They are echoes to the lead up to the Iraq War. That they have some intelligence that there's something they can't tell us but we have to trust them, therefore we have to give them the authority to send us into a war, a new war, but that war is here. And that war is against the deplorables, Trump supporters, whatever you want to call it," Joe Kent said. "And that war has allowed them to deprive our citizens of their constitutional rights."
"Those that are still sitting in a gulag in Washington, DC deprived of their rights and then even other Americans who dissent from the current regime's narrative. Just look no further then what they did to the parents who had the audacities to show up to school board meetings," Kent said. "They had the FBI's counterterrorism centers turned against them."
