Speaking in reference to Trump supporters, far-left extremist and MSNBC contributor Malcom Nance stated that Americans may have to fight their neighbors. Nance — an “extremism expert” — routinely refers to the former president and his supporters as “the Trump insurgency.”
“Here is the United States — to characterize that to understand what kind of terrorism we might be dealing with, 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,” Nance told Peacock’s Zerlina Maxwell.
“Let’s just be honest about that. The January 6 uprising was an attempt to overthrow American democracy. And we have now learned from the hearing that Donald Trump intended to go there to march down to the well of the House of Representatives and essentially be crowned as a king.”
Malcom Nance was careful to add that when talking about Islamic extremists or extremists of other political affiliation, it is important to differentiate that their race, religion or political affiliation has nothing to do with their actions. Trump voters are “insurgents,” however, according to Nance, who must be explicitly labelled as “white extremists.”
Anchor Zerlina Maxwell was happy to agree with Nance’s “insurgent” label. “You call what is happening an insurgency. We have heard that term in foreign wars recently in Iraq. Talk about why you apply the term insurgency to what you see here as a persistent and ongoing threat of domestic extremists?” Maxwell asked.
“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,” said Malcom Nance.
“So remove politics from the halls of power and change politics through violence on the street. 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.”
Nance went on to compare the Republican Party to the Irish Republican Army and, predictably, called for the national security state to clamp down on Americans.
“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,” Nance told Maxwell.
Malcom Nance — a former Naval officer — has routinely claimed that he has been “fighting” on the ground in Ukraine. Nance and his colleagues do not appear to have strayed far from the hotel bar in Lviv, far away from the frontlines in Donbas, however.
