Rick Scarborough's Tea Party Unity group celebrated the recall of two Colorado Democratic state senators whom were targeted by gun activists over their support for tough gun laws by likening the lawmakers to the 9/11 hijackers.
"There is a reason I describe Colorado’s recall as a fitting commemoration of 9/11," Tea Party activist Stephen Nemo wrote in the original column. "That September morning twelve years ago, average citizens aboard United Airlines flight 93 fought the first battle against jihadists in America. The terrorists were determined to destroy our way of life, the freedoms we enjoy – our rights as individuals. American freedom is in direct conflict with the jihadist’s submissive, dictatorial ideology.
"'Are you guys ready?' telephone operator Lisa Jefferson heard United passenger Todd Beamer say. 'Let's roll.'
Jihadists piloting the airliner were so alarmed by the unarmed but determined Americans charging them, they crashed the hijacked airplane into an open field in Pennsylvania in a last desperate act. It's believed Beamer and his fellow warriors stopped al Qaeda terrorist from crashing the commandeered craft into the Capitol Building or the White House. Beamer led what our Founders defined as a 'well-regulated militia.'"
Now they are the heroes that Stephen Nemo would love to compare himself to for having punished two lawmakers for the unpardonable offense of having at least one opinion he didn't agree with.
