WASHINGTON—As they reminisced 20 years later about a devastating and historic national tragedy, Americans reportedly took note Saturday of how the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks were the last time the country was able to put aside its differences and stand united in a bloody, homicidal thirst for vengeance. “Nowadays, there’s political polarization everywhere you look, but back then, we found a shared sense of purpose and agreed to just

Gavin Newsom holds onto his job as California governor, CNN projects
California's Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom has defeated the effort to remove him from office, according to a projection from the CNN Decision Desk, capping off a recall effort that was born in partisan anger over his pandemic response but ended with a vote of confidence in his strategy to combat it.
Not clever or funny. I mean, yeah. When it comes to doing the right thing, Americans go out of their way to do the opposite. But when it comes to fucking everything up, we're the world champs, and no one can take that away from us! cwheiden And just like that, I'm out. I know you don't care but whoever wrote this sounds like an idiot or a child who wasn't there/old enough to remember. We were united as a country, a people, in pain and sorrow and loss that outweighed any distraction or triviality.
Hell yeah. Turn their ass to glass! Cùng xây dựng895 gia đình nhỏ.. Absolutely savage! In awfully poor taste. You should be ashamed of yourselves. Unfollowed Fail. Not your finest work. Does anyone remember when the onion was funny? It's been a minute
20 years after 9/11, an American Muslim recalls the war you didn't see on TVThe differences between how 9/11 was covered on TV overseas and in the U.S. exemplified cultural gaps between East and West. As a journalist and daughter of an immigrant, LorraineAli describes how the last two decades have arguably been the hardest.
NoLore Where the venn diagrams of butthurt kvetching and Al Qaeda boasting overlap. We weren't united. Millions protested against the wars. wolfenstein91 Ehhhh not really a great topic for satire where's the lie? basically I think people joined together in their anger, most never seeing an attack on US soil. But with that eventually comes reality. People also revolted against the war relatively quickly and in 2003 the largest anti - war protest ever worldwide began
I know it's satire but there were literally millions of us who marched against going to war and into Iraq. Millions. I had a great 9/11 joke... but I forgot. So true.
Afghanistan war veteran gets emotional recalling 9/11: ‘America is damn lucky’ for heroic service membersArmy veteran Sergeant Mike Doody joined 'America Reports' to discuss his time in Afghanistan, the Biden withdrawal and how 9/11 impacted the United States.
At least the Onion is over all the performative BS. totally nailed it. Lol this is directed at anyone who says they miss the America of September 12th Oh to be Muslim straight in the states after that john_sipher Of Always too soon. Some things should stand safe from satire. Still love The O. Just a little disappointed on this one.
r/nottheonion material. There's a special species present around us that still celebrates a great sense of joy and victory looking at video clippings of aircrafts piercing the world trade center on 9/11. That particular species needs to be recognised not ignored or denied. Terrorism has no religion All these dudes saying “now isn’t the time” 😭 buddy now is exactly the time.
‘Our Responsibility to Remember’: Pentagon Leaders Commemorate AnniversarySecretary of Defense Lloyd Austin said it was “our responsibility to remember” in a commemoration of the 20th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks in remarks delivered Saturday morning on the west side of the Pentagon I entrusted Dennismayson7 with my money since I took rush of investing my money with he platform, and since then I've recovered all I lost to scams. Get in touch with Dennismayson7 and get a good mentorship and safe trading. Resign All world know about terrorists groups in Pakistan. Al Qaeda ISIS Taliban unfortunately silent. It is a tragedy for Afghanistan today because decisions to withdraw taken by Trump & Biden brought the Taliban back, ending 20
the onion does it's job once again uh-huh… Never forget. The same people that question mask wearing and vaccinations also never never question the official government story of 9/11 OldElmTree ouch JuliusGoat Too soon. pdfreshness So tempting to post this on my FB (I live in AL) I thought the onion was satirical?
Onion's getting too close to the truth here ... isn't it a little worrying when satire is more honest than most 'news' outlets? 'better them than we'

Cheney/Bush ensured success of the hijackers. And they need to face trial. everybody so mad like what else did yall expect the onion to do Oh stop judging The Onion with naivety and knee jerk patriotism it isn’t “funny” but there’s a bit of truth in demonizing and creating many long term wounds in an attempt to dole out justice
This is disgusting. Take it down. Pot luck, everybody brings something to the table. Magnificent Melissa & 9/11 is a love letter to NYC. Enjoy! For all y’all offended… it’s really about America’s response to 9/11… not 9/11 itself. Considering we just got out of Afghanistan 20 years later and it was controversial. Seems a little sarcastic soul searching might be in order… Maybe… or yeah it could be really cringey 🤷♂️
Bingo This may be a little too close to the truth for comfort.
Ex-DHS chief Chad Wolf recalls his 9/11 experience, says threat to homeland has evolvedChad Wolf, who headed the Department of Homeland Security during the Trump administration between 2019 and 2021, said the 9/11 attacks had a 'lasting impact' on his life.
john_sipher Fondly? dtaberski meh The fuckin onion I still remember your first publication after 9/11. You guys should re-publish it!! lthomasnews We can't even unite over wearing masks and sparing children. They don't miss often

RedBeretsM4All That is the most truthfully profound post the Onion has ever posted. I remember Americans wanting blood after this, and we invaded the WRONG country and murdered innocent Iraqis. The media always gets nostalgic around 9/11. They can still smell blood. theluma Revisionists: 'We all came together as one after that day.' Muslim Americans in every state: 'Bullshit.'🙄
GDOpener considering the tragedy it isnt a false statement It's certainly tasteless but chances are that many of the folks on here crying foul are the same ones that tell Black people they should just 'get over' slavery. Nah, they were also united in mourning and literally helping each other physically but also emotionally
I miss a sense of unity with my fellow Americans. The anger and hatred in this divide is difficult. It wasn’t “bloodlust”. It was the unity of a nation in pain. Some of you need to accept the notion that there is a now mature generation that didn’t experience 9/11. It’s as poignant to them as Pearl Harbor or Vietnam was to us.
Meanwhile we're losing the same amount of people every 2 days due to Covid, yet we can't even unite to get vaccinated and wear a fucking mask. 'Never forget' - we already fucking forgot. The drastic raise of xenophobia right afterwards toward other Americans still persists, no? Too soon? funny because it's true
How insensitive. There's a time and place for everything. It will ALWAYS be too soon on this on…. AccidentalJournalism strikes again ouch Indeed! The government co-opted the terrible tragedy for Political purposes via MSM and Political spectral. When the towers fell my heart brook for all those folks who died and their familys. My Soul sank seeing Hate elevated to a Religion.
The libs in the replies are having a hard time.
It's funny to see how sensitive people will forever be about 9/11 I'm here to read the comments of the mentally handicapped individuals who think this is a serious headline. Its funny seeing all the newly woke zoomers getting all worked up about the Onion articles nowadays. They have been releasing quality news satire articles since you were in nappies, unsubscribe if you want to be spoonfed Michael McIntyre jokes about his kitchen cupboard.
Based tweet. Remembering 9/11 isn’t about mourning Be as brutal as you want, but besides being not remotely funny, joke just comes across as forced n smug. do you open your presents on the morning of 9/11 or the evening? Nailed it. 9-11 🇺🇸 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 What are former or current presidents doing today? BUSH… speaking at Shanksville, 🇺🇸 OBAMA …visiting World Trade Center🇺🇸 BIDEN …visiting at all three sites 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 TRUMP … speaking at a boxing match in Hollywood FL 🤡😈🤮
there is nothing fond about it but ok Meh, it's a gift that keeps on giving. I thought the onion is supposed to be satirical 🤷 Coming into the replies like Ouch. Hits a little to close to home 😱 At a certain point dark humor stops being humor and is just an outright insult. Onion is stinky and too pungent today
bold af for posting this today instead of waiting until tomorrow tomorrow i love it
Top Notch commentary... This is going to be a good one, i know the onion does not disappoint with their comment section I thought y'all only delt spoofs! Yeah alot of simple minded revenge fantasies were going on 20 years ago. Brutally accurate. Nope Not funny. only joke is it took a couple days to do so oh this comment section is going to be good
