Over the weekend, Jim Acosta announced that the GOP in the United States has become akin to an American Taliban. During his CNN appearance, Acosta proclaimed that conservative individuals in the United States could be known as the “MAGAban.”
According to Acosta, various individuals “on the far right” have been sounding the alarm about Afghan refugees for the entire week, warning the nation that “the refugees are coming.”
Acosta notes that Fox New’s Tucker Carlson, who he labels a “human manure spreader,” has also promoted various “race-baiting conspiracy [theories]” on his show, including the proclamation that tens of thousands of Afghan refugees are flooding the United States in order to influence the results of future elections.
During the CNN segment, Acosta played clips of various conservative representatives, including Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green (R-GA), Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC), House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), and Tucker Carlson, all of whom were urging various telecommunications enterprises to refuse cooperating with the committee tasked with investigating the events of January 6.
Acosta also assailed the recent legislation passed in Texas regarding abortion, remarking upon the “bizarre new law” that effectively bans abortion while also creating an alleged “bounty system” that permits citizens to sue either health care providers or “just about anyone” who offers a woman assistance to receive an abortion.
“If you’re getting a Handmaid’s Tale vibe from this, you’re note alone,” Acosta droned.
Acosta also noted that a certain percentage of various “far-right” individuals across the United States have decided that “intimidation” and “even violence” are acceptable means for obtaining what they want, and they could subsequently “sweep into power” more quickly than experts’ previous predictions.
“Sound familiar?” Acosta inquired, “Sort of like an American Taliban. It is starting to look like a combination of theocracy and thugocracy.”
Acosta accuses Tucker Carlson and other individuals of being “leaders of this MAGAban movement,” and he also adds that none of the leaders are counting on “a lack of planning” or “an intelligence failure.” On the contrary, they intend to count on “a lack of courage” to stand up for rights in the United States.
“Does that ring a bell?” Acosta remarked, adding that conservatives in the United States are “anti-women,” “anti-democratic,” and “anti-immigration,” and they have pursued legislation to reflect these beliefs for decades.
“Their operation to change America forever is well underway,” Acosta concluded.
