Wednesday night on Peacock TV’s Zerlina, author, purported “intelligence analyst,” and hateful propadangist Malcolm Nance said that the Republican Party has become an “insurgency,” meaning some Americans might have to fight their “neighbors.”
Nance began by claiming falsely and ludicrously that Trump supporters attempted “to overthrow American democracy” on January 6, 2021 and that Trump “intended to march down to the well of the House of Representatives and essentially be crowned as a king.”
Asked why he has been known to apply the term “insurgency to what you see here as a persistent and ongoing threat of domestic extremists,” Nance stated, without offering a shred of evidence, “I was reading their forums. I was reading their own intelligence about what they intended to do. It was pretty clear at that point that they 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 using violence, threat of violent extremism as a way to manifest change in the street.”
“Long-term series of destabilizing political actions”? “Using violence as a way to manifest change in the street”? Sounds like Nance is referring not to the GOP but to his own party.
He continued to make stuff up: “This is called an insurgency. The insurrection that happened on January 6 that was one event. An insurgency is a chain of events. It’s common knowledge.”
Fact check: there was no insurrection on January 6. The desperate, continued Democrat insistence that there was one was long ago exposed as a propagandistic lie.
“So we are well on our way to a multi-year campaign that we are already two years into this campaign where we may have to fight them,” he added, smearing Republicans as “your neighbors” who “want to kill Americans.”
Nance is not a serious commentator, much less an “intelligence analyst.” He is a demagogue pushing for civil war.
