Kirsters Baish| Yesterday, millions of Americans took time out of their day to reflect back on the horrific tragedy that shook our nation 17 years ago. The 9/11 terrorist attack was the deadliest our country has ever seen. We all remember where we were, who we were with, what we were feeling when we heard the news. This kind of devastating tragedy should unify our country. Americans should come together to unite as one when remembering 9/11, but unfortunately Democrats choose to let it divide us.
With the Democrats’ constant politicization of 9/11 is plain disrespectful for all of those who lost loved ones that day 17 years ago.
A man named Nicholas Haros lost his 76-year-old mother in the attacks, and he is sick and tired of the way the Democrats have chosen to politicize his mother’s death. He specifically called out Nancy Pelosi, Cory Booker, and other Democrats in a major way yesterday.
Take a look:
Son who lost mother in World Trade attacks goes off-script to attack Pelosi, Booker & Brennan for politicizing 9/11
“Please stop using the bones & ashes of our loved ones as props in your political theater. Let’s not trivialize them or us. It hurts”

From The Daily Caller:
Nicholas Haros, who lost his mother in the attacks, was one of the volunteers reading the names of victims at Ground Zero in Tuesday’s memorial.
After completing his list of names and paying tribute to his late mother, Haros slammed Democrats Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Cory Booker and a member of the media for using the 9/11 victims as “props.”
The Washington Examiner reported that Haros finished reading off multiple names when he said, “This year, a representative of the House referred to our loss as just another incident.” He was referring to Nancy Pelosi, who referenced the “9/11 incident” in June when speaking to reporters.
“This year, a network commentator said the president’s performance in Helsinki was a traitorous act as was 9/11,” Haros went on.
“And last week, a senator attacked a Supreme Court nominee and called him a racist for alleged comments after 9/11,” he continued. He was clearly referring to New Jersey Democrat Cory Booker, who publicly released emails which he claimed proved that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh supported racial profiling. Upon examination of the emails, they proved no such thing.
“Stop, stop,” Haros went on after citing these examples. “Please, stop using the bones and ashes of our loved ones as props in your political theater.”
“They’re lives, sacrifices and death are worth so much more. Let’s not trivialize us or us, it hurts,” he exclaimed.
How can these Democrats sleep at night? They are politicizing the deaths of more than 2,600 Americans. Tragedies like 9/11 go beyond politics. We should be coming together to remember those who lost their lives, not using their deaths as political ammunition.
