Dem warns GOP’s been ‘pushing civil war’, black people’s ‘lives are in the balance’ if they win midterms

Facing deep losses in the upcoming midterm elections, Democrats are working overtime to whip their base into a state of fear and hysteria over the horrors that will be unleashed if – as many are predicting – Republicans win back control of both houses of Congress. One of them is Rep. Jamaal Bowman who warned of a white nationalist takeover of America.

The New York congressman also claimed that the end of one-party leftist political rule will have grave consequences including the dismantling of Nancy Pelosi’s Jauary 6 committee, the impeachment of President Joe Biden, and even a civil war during Saturday’s edition of “The Cross Connection” on MSNBC.

Host Tiffany Cross asked her guest, “Should the GOP retake Congress in the fall, what happens to the January 6th committee investigation and its findings and what might the GOP do, or not do with their newly claimed power?”

Bowman, who has the distinction of being the first male member of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s “Squad” responded: “So the January 6th commission would cease to exist, the findings will be completely suppressed and will not be admitted into any further investigations while the GOP will be in power, they would impeach President Biden as quickly as possible and it will continue to find ways to impeach him going forward.”

“It would also embolden Republicans and the far-right, and white nationalists across the country to begin to believe that it is their time to not just take power in the House, but the Senate, the White House, and state houses across the country,” he added, “and we gotta understand that this is a group that has been radicalized by the Great Replacement myth and many other things and have been pushing for violence and pushing for even civil war.”

“So that is what is at stake right now in terms of this election,” he said. “Our democracy is hanging by a thread, and black and brown people, our lives are in the balance if these people come back into power.”

Cross then asked the lawmaker about his resolution on the so-called Great Replacement Theory which has been a fixture of Democrat talking points since the mass shooting at a Buffalo, New York grocery store last month, a concept that was talked about by the gunman in his deranged, rambling manifesto.

“So, it’s really important for the House to be crystal clear and take a position to unequivocally condemn the Great Replacement Theory and white supremacy,” he said. “Its the first time in history that the House has condemned the Great Replacement Theory and that matters because what we’ve seen over the last several years is the massacre in Buffalo, the massacre at AME church, the massacre at Tree of Life, the massacre at Christchurch in New Zealand were all inspired by this Great Replacement Theory idea. So the condemnation of it, how swiftly it was done after Buffalo, two weeks after Buffalo we wrote the resolution, we got it to the floor, we voted on it, it passed the House shows that Democrats in the House at least, are united in condemning this.”

“But this is just the first step,” Bowman added. “There’s so much more work to do and we really need the American people writ large to be engaged and pushing back on white nationalism and where it lives throughout our institutions.”

With voter discontent with the deeply unpopular President Joe Biden and his party cutting across all demographics, Democrats clearly believe that they can motivate black people to turn out in November if they scare the hell out of them by constantly invoking the phantom menace of white supremacy and the Great Replacement Theory. The rhetoric will likely only get more toxic as the critical elections draw closer.
