A contributor on MSNBC likened members of the Republican party to a terrorist organization responsible for the murders of thousands. Or, as some would call it, just a normal Friday on mainstream media television channels.
Contributor and frequent guest Jason Johnson said the GOP is “a cult not radically dissimilar from al-Qaeda,” and that the party seeks to stop everyone except White men from voting, as reported by NewsBusters.
“At some point, you have to recognize that when people worship white supremacy, when people worship Trump, when people worship whatever kind of Q-Anon conspiracy they want, it is now a cult,” Johnson said on MSNBC’s Deadline: White House. “It is a cult not radically dissimilar from al-Qaeda—at least from what we’ve seen so far.”
After the comparison, Johnson discussed his view that Republicans want to bring America back several decades in who it seeks to allow voting rights.
“We have to stop these people at every single turn because they will take America back to the 1930s, ’40s, and ’20s, and make sure that nobody who’s not a straight white male Christian is actually able to vote and exercise their right in this country,” he said.
Johnson revealed his strategy for taking down Republicans.
“And when you deal with cults, you can no longer defeat those people with logic. You just have to defeat them with laws and you have to allow people to live in whatever kind of crazy fantasy world they want as long as they’re not harming other people,” he told the MSNBC audience.
