Terrorism analyst Malcolm Nance proclaimed that Republicans have become the party of insurgency, and Americans may have to "fight" their neighbors. Nance made the comments during a Wednesday appearance on the "Zerlina" online show that is broadcast on the Peacock streaming service.
"But here in the United States – to characterize that to understand what just kind of terrorism we might be dealing with," Nance told host Zerlina Maxwell, "you have to label it as white extremism because we have 30% of the population of the United States who no longer believe in the democratic norms that we established in the founding of the country. Let’s just be honest about that."
"The January 6 uprising was an attempt to overthrow American democracy," Nance asserted.
Nance claimed that former President Donald Trump expected to be "crowned as a king" on Jan. 6, 2020.
Nance maintained, "American democracy is not just fragile, American democracy is under direct and immediate attack by people who would see 245 years of democratic governance destroyed."
He believed that Trump supporters want to "transform" the United States back into a monarchy or totalitarian government.
Lance lashed out at 60% of Americans "are not listening or paying attention at all" to the Jan. 6 hearings.
Nance said that he was "reading their forums" of domestic terrorists, and alleged that Trump supporters "were going to try to either overthrow the government or they were going to settle in for a long-term series of destabilizing actions using a political party – the Republican party – as their political base and then use violence, and threats of violent extremism as a way to manifest change in the street."
"This is called an insurgency," he continued. "The insurrection that happened on Jan. 6, that was one event. An insurgency is a chain of events."
The cable news pundit argued that the United States is much like toppled governments in Iraq, Libya, and Syria.
He felt that the current-day U.S. Republicans are "closer to the beginnings of the Irish Republican Army."
"You know Irish Republicanism – where now the Republican Party is Sinn Fein – and it’s just a matter of seeing who comes up as the original Irish Republicans in this story, and starts carrying out acts of violence to affect change," he avowed.
Nance proclaimed that Americans may need to fight their neighbors.
"We may have to fight them," he emphasized. "They who want to kill Americans are your neighbors."
