MSNBC’s Jason Johnson: Democrats “Can’t Negotiate, Can’t Work With ‘Terrorists’”

On Wednesday, MSNBC political analyst Jason Johnson cited the example of alleged QAnon supporter and GOP Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene and came to the conclusion that Democrats can’t work with “terrorists.”

Making his comments on MSNBC’s “Deadline,” Johnson declared, “you can’t negotiate, you can’t legislate and you can’t work with terrorists.”

MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace Warns That Republicans Are Flirting With Terrorists

MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace, who formerly served as George W. Bush’s press secretary, said of Greene, “This isn’t even about views. She’s a conspiracy theorist, committed the very same kinds of disinformation that today the Department of Homeland Security warned against, in almost an unprecedented bulletin.”

“She is what they are describing in the Homeland Security Department’s bulletin about the world views of potentially violent extremists who represent domestic terrorism,” Wallace continued.

“Those are the views that this congresswoman has.”

Yesterday, the Department of Homeland Security issued a National Terrorism Advisory System bulletin “warning the public of a “heightened threat environment” across the United States following last week’s presidential inauguration.”

The bulletin claims “Information suggests that some ideologically-motivated violent extremists with objections to the exercise of governmental authority and the presidential transition, as well as other perceived grievances fueled by false narratives, could continue to mobilize to incite or commit violence.”

The bulletin goes on to encourage readers to report “suspicious activity” to the FBI, and to avoid large crowds.

Wallace then set her sights on the 45 Republicans who essentially voted against an impeachment trial for former President Donald Trump.

Wallace said, “I think what is revealed by the Senate vote this week, with 45 Republicans to not even hold a trial for the president who incited the insurrection, who had all of them had all of them hiding in their own offices with the furniture pushed up again the doors. What were they hiding for?”

Wallace asked what Republicans were scared of.

“If Donald Trump hadn’t incited a violent insurrection that they were scared about,” the questioning Wallace persisted. “Why weren’t they roaming the halls? If they weren’t afraid, why were they in offices with furniture pushed up against a door?”

MSNBC’s Jason Johnson Claims Republicans ‘Have A Violent Terrorist Organization That’s Supported By Their Ideology’

Speaking to Johnson, Wallace went on:

“And my only point about the opportunity that Democrats have is that they have today, this bulletin describes the threat, they describe the world view of the people who right now and through the end of April, in the views of the people at the Department of Homeland Security, the world view is the same word view as the views publicly espoused by the QAnon member of Congress.”

In August of 2020, Rep. Greene said she had distanced herself from QAnon, saying, “And so, yeah, there was a time there for a while that I had read about Q, posted about it, talked about it, which is some of these videos you’ve seen come out. But once I started finding misinformation, I decided that I would choose another path.”

Johnson replying to Wallace, stated of Greene, “If that community, if Georgia wants this crazed conspiracy theorist to represent them, that’s their right, but the Republican Party doesn’t have to support her.”

“They don’t have to put her on committees, take money away from her, they can criticize her, but they are not,” Johnson added.

Johnson then implied that Republicans support a “violent terrorist organization,” apparently referring to the so-called QAnon movement.

He continued, “They know that they have a violent terrorist organization that’s supported by their ideology. They try to pretend it’s not the case.”

Johnson later referred to far left Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, saying, “AOC mentioned in interviews after the insurrection that she didn’t want to shelter in place with fellow Republicans, because she was legitimately concerned that they may rather out, that they may tell some of the terrorists where she was hiding.”

Johnson: ‘We Don’t Negotiate With Terrorists’

“So when you have members of the Republican Party who are seen as being in lockstep with a terrorist organization, the Democrats have to stop saying — it’s above and beyond unity — they have to say these people are terrorists and don’t want to govern,” Johnson said.

This is where Johnson laid it all out.

“We don’t negotiate with terrorists” Johnson said, referring to Republicans.

Then he gave some advice to Democrats.

“The first Democrat that says that is the person who should be the leader of the messages for the party for the next 18 months,” Johnson added. “You can’t negotiate, you can’t legislate, and you can’t work with terrorists.”

CNN Personality Claims Trump Is ‘Leader Of A Terrorist Organization’

A CNN national security analyst went so far on Tuesday as to claim that President Donald Trump is the “leader of a terrorist organization,” calling for the “complete isolation” of him despite the fact that 74 million Americans voted for in this past election.

CNN Analyst Says Trump Is ‘Leader Of This Domestic Terrorist Effort’

Juliette Kayyem, a lecturer at Harvard University and former member of Barack Obama’s Homeland Security Advisory Council, argued on CNN that Trump is the “spiritual” and “operational” leader of a “domestic terrorism effort.”

“Trump is the spiritual, but I will also say operational leader of this domestic terrorism effort. He tells them where to go. He tells them what to do. He tells them why they’re angry,” she outrageously alleged.

Not stopping there, Kayvem claimed that the U.S. government must launch a counterterrorism effort against against the Trump supporters who protested at the Capitol building last week.

“And so we need to start at the top, like any counterterrorism effort, which is total isolation of the president of the United States. Impeachment, yes. 25th Amendment, yes. Deplatforming, yes. All of the above. No money. No access to campaign funds,” she said, going on to argue for the president’s “complete isolation” because Trump, “as the leader of a terrorist organization,” will have a more difficult time recruiting followers if he is “viewed as a loser.”

“He’s going to have his radical elements. We will arrest them, we will isolate them,” Kayvem added. “But what we have to make sure is that Donald Trump does not have a second act.”

I know I sound incredibly harsh right now calling the president this, but we are in the tactical response right now. Enough with the ‘let’s unity’ and stuff, this is a tactical effort right now to make sure that we protect American citizens and, of course, the next president of the United States.”

Kayvem Doubles Down 

Kayvem doubled down on this in an article published on Tuesday by The Atlantic. In this article, she accused Trump of “rallying point for a coalition of theocrats, internet fantasists, white supremacists, and various other authoritarians who are in no way committed to peaceful transitions of power.”

“The way to unite this country is to isolate acts of violence—and a leader who incites it—from legitimate expression,” Kayyem wrote. “Trump was a north star for a certain kind of radical. Americans will be safer the more that star loses its shine.”
