We should start calling republicans American Taliban.

Both groups share an ideology. They loathe anyone not straight, white and male. Every awful thing in this country can be traced back to these old straight white men. Generation after generation. MarginalizIng people, holding people down. Killing people and showing no regard for human life; all the while screaming about how pro life they are.

After January 6th there can be no doubt what the republicans will do should they get power. The filibuster will be gone 5 minutes after they’re sworn in. If you don’t get that, you’re either not paying attention or not willing to admit what you know is true.

We’re in court fighting. I hope we’re organizing madly in the places it matters most right now. In a world where election officials are being threatened, replaced or resigning its an all hands on deck moment.

We’re dealing with the American Taliban.

2. Yes, it all works.

They all want to rule, they want to be lawless, they want to rape and pillage and they do not want to be restricted by anything or anyone.

3. I think American Al-Qaeda

I think American Al-Qaeda is more logical (but American Taliban sounds better). By Logical, I mean the English translation of Al-Qaeda is "The Base".

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Al-Qaeda

Al-Qaeda (/ælˈkaɪdə, ˌælkɑːˈiːdə/; Arabic: القاعدة‎ al-Qāʿidah, IPA: [ælqɑːʕɪdɐ], translation: "The Base", "The Foundation", alternatively spelled al-Qaida and al-Qa'ida

4. Don't forget referring to their authoritarian religious leaders

as 'ayatollahs'.

Ayatollah Franklin Graham has a nice ring to it.

12. Aaron Sorkin's The Newsroom had its anchor say that a decade ago.

Jeff Daniels plays a moderate Republican anchor who criticizes the tea party.
