Right-Wing Extremist: The Taliban Can Be A ‘Model’ For MAGA Takeover Of The United States

A man attending a rally in Iowa for Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) told CNN reporter Donie O’Sullivan that the Taliban’s successful and rapid takeover in Afghanistan can easily be used a a “model” for “patriots” to overthrow the elected government of the United States.

O’Sullivan was interviewing attendees of the rally when one man began spouting some terrifying predictions of what he sees happening in the United States:

“There’s millions of guns here. You know, it took eleven days for them to take over Afghanistan. Just ask… how many days it’ll take for the patriots to take over this country.”

That led O’Sullivan to ask:

“You don’t want that to happen here, do you?”

The man replied:

“I don’t want it to happen! But if our country and our government and our Congress and Biden don’t get their heads out of their butts, it’s going to happen! I assure you, it’s coming!”

The man is right about there being “millions of guns” in the United States, but not all of them are in the hands of those who want to stage a coup. Liberals and progressives own guns, too, and the government has unlimited power and weapons to counter with.

That doesn’t mean right-wing extremists aren’t a threat. They are, as we learned on January 6th. Even the Department of Homeland Security says domestic terrorism is the biggest threat to the country.

But there’s another threat, too: The rhetoric and vitriol being spewed out by people like Marjorie Greene, Donald Trump, and others. They’re also dangerous, and they need to be treated as such.
