Far-left Representative Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) counted the 9/11 hijackers as “those who lost their lives” on that fateful day 21 years ago.

Although 2,977 people were killed in the September 11, 2001 attacks, Jayapal added 19 additional deaths to her memorial death toll in tribute on her Instagram and Twitter, bringing the number to 2,996. Jayapal deleted the tweet and edited her Instagram after the immediate response.

“Today we commemorate the 2,996 people who were killed on 9/11 and all those who lost their lives serving our country in the eternal wars that followed,” she initially tweeted.

People on Twitter noted that Jayapal made the same “mistake” in commemorating the 9/11 death toll a year ago.

In her now-edited Instagram post, Jayapal simply recalled “every life lost” on 9/11, while lamenting the “climate of hatred that our Arab, Muslim, Sikh and other immigrant communities have had to endure”.

“Today we remember every life lost 21 years ago on that tragic day and all those who lost their lives serving our country in the eternal wars that followed,” she wrote. “At the same time, we must recognize the climate of hatred that our Arab, Muslim, Sikh and other immigrant communities have endured.”

“Let’s commit ourselves once again to choose love over hate and unity over division,” she added.

In another tweet, Jayapal called on Americans to also remember the “hatred, discrimination and erosion of civil liberties they had to endure.”

“On 9/11 my path to activism and organizing really started. So much has changed that day and so much has happened in the intervening two decades, but our work still continues,” she tweeted.

“Today we must remember the communities here at home that have suffered so much – not only from the terrorist attacks that have struck the psyche of every American, but also because of the hatred, discrimination and erosion of civil liberties they have had to endure.”
