Radical Democrat Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) has honored the terrorists who died after hijacking planes on 9/11 in a statement on the 21st anniversary of the attacks.
Jayapal included the 9/11 terrorists while remembering “those who lost their lives” 21 years ago.
2,977 people were killed in the attacks on September 11, 2001.
However, in a tribute on social media, Jayapal added an extra 19 to her commemorative death toll.
In posts on her Instagram and Liberal Twitter accounts, she brought the number up to 2,996.
Following an immediate backlash, Jayapal deleted the tweet and edited her Instagram post.
“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,” she initially tweeted.
Twitter users noted that Jayapal made the same “mistake” when commemorating the 9/11 death toll one year ago.

2,977 people died on 9/11. Rep. Jayapal wants to make sure you understand that she’s remembering the 19 hijackers who murdered the other 2,977 people all together as one.

In her now-edited Instagram post, Jayapal simply remembered “every life lost” on 9/11.
She continued by lamenting the “climate of hate that our Arab, Muslim, Sikh, and other immigrant communities have had to endure.”
“Today we remember every life lost on that tragic day 21 years ago and all those who lost their lives while serving our country in the forever wars that followed,” she wrote.
“At the same time, we must acknowledge the climate of hate that our Arab, Muslim, Sikh, and other immigrant communities have had to endure.”
“Let’s recommit ourselves to choosing love over hate and unity over division,” she added.
In another tweet, Jayapal called for Americans to also remember the “hate, discrimination, and erosion of civil liberties they had to endure.”
“9/11 is when my path into activism and organizing truly began,” she tweeted.
“So much changed that day, and so much has happened in the intervening two decades but our work still continues.”
“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.”
