Jayapal’s math includes hijackers in calls for mourning those ‘who were killed’ on 9/11

Over time, politicians will always tell you who they are and U.S. Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., is sending some pretty strong signals.

The radical left Democrat took to Twitter on Sunday to mark the 21st anniversary of 9/11 and appeared to include the Islamic terrorist hijackers in remembering “those who lost their lives.”

“Today we remember the 2,996 people who were killed on 9/11 and all those who lost their lives while serving our country in the forever wars that followed,” Jayapal tweeted.

The number cited is 19 more than the number killed at the hands of the terrorists on September 11, 2001 — there were 19 hijackers involved in the terrorist attacks. However, if you Google how many people died on 9/11, the number 2,996 is displayed, which include the terrorists. Meaning it’s possible the tweet was just a lazy mistake by the lawmaker — others have made that mistake.

When social media took notice of the tweet, Jayapal scrambled to delete it without explanation, but it turns out she tweeted the same message last year.

The tweet from last year was still up as of this writing, and Jayapal shared another cryptic tweet on Sunday vowing to never forget “every life lost on that tragic day.”

Jayapal, who represents much of Seattle, is chair of the radical Congressional Progressive Caucus and she tweeted a message about what motivated her “path to activism” while singling out concern for one specific segment of society.

“9/11 is when my path into activism and organizing truly began. So much changed that day, and so much has happened in the intervening two decades but our work still continues,” she tweeted, adding in a follow up, “Today we must remember the communities right here at home that suffered so much — not only through the terrorist attacks that affected every American’s psyche, but also the hate, discrimination, and erosion of civil liberties they had to endure.”

Playing the race card, Jayapal then referenced a resolution she had offered along with the first two Muslim women to serve in Congress, U.S. Reps. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., and Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., along with another hard-left Democrat, U.S. Rep. Judy Chu, D-Calif.

“We must fully condemn all manifestations and expressions of racism, xenophobia, discrimination, scapegoating, and ethnic or religious bigotry while also finally acknowledging the climate of hate that Arab, Muslim, Middle Eastern, South Asian, and Sikh communities have experienced in the two decades since September 11, 2001,” the faction said. “As we acknowledge that our own government implemented harmful policies that unfairly profiled and targeted Arab, Muslim, Middle Eastern, South Asian, and Sikh communities, we must also celebrate that these very communities have met these challenges with unwavering courage, strength, compassion, and resilience while uniting in the aftermath to advocate for civil and human rights — work which continues to this day to benefit all Americans.”

Social media users weren’t eager to give a divisive lawmaker like Jayapal, who is forever besmirching America, the benefit of the doubt… here’s a quick sampling of responses to the story from Twitter:
