Conservatives and American patriots alike are slamming Joe Biden’s address to Congress in which he calls the Capitol protests of Jan 6 the “the worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War.”
The White House released an excerpt of Biden’s speech on Wednesday night, just hours before his full address.

“100 days since I took the oath of office, lifted my hand off our family Bible, and inherited a nation in crisis, we had the worst pandemic in a century. The worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. The worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War.”

Social media erupted after Biden made his comments, many pointing out a multitude of national attacks and tragedies experienced since the civil war — including the terrorist attacks of 9/11.
Conservative reporter Mollie Hemingway attempts to remind Biden of the Pearl Harbor attack and multiple presidential assassinations:
Biden asserts riot was a worse attack than various bombings and deadly attacks on the Capitol, deadly Summer of Rage with its attacks on the WH and federal court buildings, four presidential assassinations, another five assassination attempts, Pearl Harbor, and 9/11. OK. https://t.co/1S7Hc0nsLW

Journalist Jon Levine highlighted the Left-Wing domestic terrorist attack on the U.S. Capitol in 1983:
Left wing terrorists literally detonated a bomb in the US capitol in 1983 and one of them was later granted clemency by Bill Clinton https://t.co/sMWv51phxi

Professor Andy Grewal pointed out that four U.S. presidents have been murdered since the end of the Civil War:

Many were left wondering why the attacks at Pearl Harbor were never considered in Biden’s address.
GOP Senate candidate Eric Greitens was a Navy SEAL in training when over 3,000 American lives were lost at the World Trade Center bombing:
I was at SEAL training in Coronado when Al Qaeda took down the Twin Towers on 9/11.
Over 3,000 Americans died that day.
Thousands more died in the Global War on Terror that followed.
Joe Biden forgets their sacrifice. https://t.co/fkrtEDREib

Joe Biden also addressed the economic devastation caused by the coronavirus pandemic, his administration’s plans for massive government spending and his vow to restrict Second Amendment rights.
