MSNBC Guest: Republican Party is a ‘Domestic Terrorist Group’

Democratic pollster Fernand Amandi guest starred on MSNBC;s “AM Joy” on Saturday. During that broadcast, he claimed the Republican Party is not in fact a political party but rather “a domestic terror group.”

To this ridiculous notion I ask: Has he ever, just one single time, even squinted at the Democratic Party?

One of his “selling points” was that Florida Republican Congress members are not pushing the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).

He said,  “I think it leads to the question, is it any surprise that the party that is pro-pay for play, pro-Putin, and now with Roy Moore, pro-pedophilia, the fact that they’re anti-children, is that any surprise? I don’t think it is. And I think Joy, this is emblematic, this CHIP scenario, where you mentioned 9 million children, children, without health insurance.”

Amandi continued, “I think if you take a step back, one has to ask themselves, and I think the American people should ask themselves the broader question, what has the Republican Party, in the last 10 years, done to help the American people? What have they done? This is not a political party. This is a domestic terror group,” he said, “And what I think the American people should consider when they ask themselves that question, with a party that has done nothing to help the American people, is to vote them out and consider possibly afterwards locking them up, Joy.”

This is not the first time (and I doubt it will be the last time) that he has so harshly criticized the Republican Party. He also referred to it as the “Repuli-Klan Party” and claims the have “white supremacy.”
