(Tea Party PAC) – And just like that, you became a political dissident.
If you are conservative, patriotic, believe in traditional values, and (most especially) question the results of the 2020 election, congratulations, national security “experts” now consider you to be a terrorist and enemy combatant.
Welcome to the Biden era.
An essay for The Root published this past week attacks the Republican Party as a “terror group” which is full of “terrorist sympathizers” who ought to be treated as enemy combatants.
Terrell Jermaine Starr (pictured at top) is the author of the essay, which is titled “Democrats Are Stuck With a Republican Party Rife With Conspiracy Theorists, Anarchists and Terrorist Sympathizers” and immediately launches into an attack on the party that is nothing short of hysterical, baseless garbage.
“[W]e have an entire political party that has converted into an authoritarian—albeit Americanized version—style of politics that cares nothing about U.S. democracy or anyone who is not white,” the essay unironically writes. Yes, he’s totally missing that it is the Democrats who are screaming for violations of personal liberty, mask mandates and COVID-19 lockdowns, and everyone right-wing of Bill Maher to be treated like a social pariah.
Or terrorist, if Starr has his way.
He describes the GOP as “a party of turncoats” who “basically sat by and said nothing” to counter “lies” he was shamefully subject to listen to during the Democrats’ sham impeachment last week, which he apparently had expected to simply not include the defense’s perspective and rather for the whole Republican Party to simply tar and feather the Trump attorneys to symbolize their full and complete loyalty to Dear Leader Biden.
“The Republican Party is functioning like a terror cell,” Starr’s unhinged rant continues.
NEW: National security experts told me the Republican Party is functioning like a terror cell. One said, "If they were in Afghanistan, we would’ve hit them. Either a raid, drop a bomb on them." Thanks @PamKeithFL, @_pamcampos, @KyleWBibby, @MalcolmNance. https://t.co/d7dBvffBx3

A bunch of leftist “experts” begin to firm up Starr’s crazy theory.
Former Democrat congressional candidate Pam Keith, a US Navy veteran, was quoted as saying:
“The only way a country like ours survives is through mutual agreement to set a standard. That’s what the Constitution is. That’s what the rule of law is. If you don’t have that, then there’s no incentive to peacefully allow the other sides to exercise power.”
Hmm…let’s apply this to some other hot-button social issues, shall we? Racism? Abortion? Free speech? Civil liberties?
Where’s the standard gone there, as it’s certainly no longer applied equally to all Americans.
Earlier this month, Keith, who apparently has super high standards, compared Trump to Osama bin Laden. Back in 2019, she called for women to simply stop sleeping with conservative men—so she’s clearly totally grounded and should be taken super seriously as a social commentator.
“We still have this delusion of bipartisanship, Keith said. “There’s no f*cking bipartisanship. Get off that ship. It does not work. It’s sinking. It’s done. It’s at the bottom of the ocean. It’s the fucking Titanic. It’s down in the water. Let it go.”
Kyle Bibby, a former Marine Corps Infantry officer and the national campaign manager at Common Defense, said that if the Capitol Hill rioters had been in Afghanistan, they could have been “hit.”
“We would’ve hit them,” he said. “Either a raid, drop a bomb on them, whatever it is.”
Imagine for one moment if a conservative said that about BLM.
Twitter users, as you can imagine, were shocked by the outrageous slander of regular, everyday Americans who simply disagree with claims about the election or want to preserve our country and its values.
They actually want to kill Republicans. Wild. https://t.co/pPrExetj5X

This sounds like an incitement to civil war. What a way to talk about half the country! We have not seen this type of rhetoric in this country since 1860 https://t.co/yDxmzwukjg

Or we could just “drop a bomb on them,” say “national security experts” https://t.co/Dmk9C0iLg3

Nothing dangerous about arguing for droning one of America's two major political parties. https://t.co/ltRCg8YJ1n

Pam Keith is a loon who retweets unhinged conspiracy theories on Twitter. Or is that Malcolm Nance? And imagine the reaction if someone in a right-wing outlet published an article in which someone casually mentioned dropping a bomb on Democrats. These people are nuts. https://t.co/uoUEYb5e3r

Just liberal bluechecks saying Republicans should have bombs dropped on them.
