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.

Historic House Vote Expels Rep. George Santos Amidst Scandal
In a turn of events, the House of Representatives made history on Friday with a vote to expel Rep. George Santos (R-N.Y.), marking the first such expulsion in over two decades. A moment fraught with gravity unfolded as Speaker Mike Johnson wielded his gavel to formalize Santos’ removal, setting a precedent in congressional annals.
Santos, indicted on 23 counts related to wire fraud, identity theft, and other charges, has not faced conviction but stands accused of misusing campaign funds for opulent purchases. The bipartisan vote, tallying 311 to 114, signaled robust support for expulsion, with a marginally higher number of Republicans opting to retain Santos.
Questions loomed as Speaker Johnson left the chamber, his silence leaving the fate of the ongoing government spending battle uncertain. According to reports from Fox News, Democratic Rep. Steny Hoyer emphasized the non-partisan nature of the decision, asserting that members concluded Santos had tarnished the House’s reputation and was unfit for representation.
Within the GOP, conflicting opinions emerged, with Rep. Darrell Issa arguing against expulsion, citing the presumption of innocence. The tight-lipped stance of the House Ethics Committee played a pivotal role in the deliberations.
Conversely, members of the New York Republican delegation, led by Rep. Marc Molinaro, asserted Santos’ commission of crimes, justifying expulsion based on a comprehensive investigation.
Santos himself predicted the outcome in an exclusive morning interview on “FOX & Friends.” This vote not only underlines the House’s rare use of expulsion powers but also sets a critical precedent in handling members facing severe legal challenges.
