Progressive Representative Jamaal Bowman suggested this weekend that far-right white nationalists could be encouraged to start another civil war if Republicans regain a majority in Congress after November’s midterm elections.
The New York “Squad” member made a series of predictions on MSNBC about what a Republican-dominated Washington would look like, including multiple trials for President Joe Biden and the dissolution of the select committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riots. .
“They would impeach President Biden ASAP and they will continue to find ways to impeach him in the future,” Bowman said in the Cross Connection with Tiffany Cross.
It would also encourage Republicans and far-right and white nationalists across the country to believe that it is their time to take power not only in the House, but the Senate, the White House and state houses across the country. country.’
He continued, “And we have to understand that this is a group that has been radicalized by the great replacement myth and many other things, and has pushed for violence and even civil war.”
Bowman warned that the lives of “black and brown people” are at stake if these people return to power.
And the committee that is currently unveiling Trump and his Republican allies’ efforts to undermine American democracy, Bowman said it “ceases to exist.”
“The findings would be completely suppressed and will not be admitted to further investigation as long as the GOP is in power,” the left-wing lawmaker said.

The “great replacement” theory was cited by an 18-year-old gunman who killed 10 people last month at a supermarket in a predominantly black neighborhood of Buffalo, New York.
The racist principles were echoed by the man who murdered 23 people of mostly Hispanic descent in 2019 at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas.
Bowman was part of a group of MPs that last week passed the first-ever resolution condemning the grand replacement theory.
“Weapon violence is an existential threat to all of us, but it takes deep hatred and brainwashing to kill people just because of their race, religion or national origin,” Bowman said at the time.
“We must both tackle arms reforms and fight against hatred of all kinds to truly eradicate these shocking and destructive mass killings. Congress cannot sit idly by and pretend not to see the impact of the Great Replacement Theory in fueling these terrorist acts.”
His bold warning comes two weeks after a new survey from the Southern Poverty Law Center suggested more than 50 percent of GOP voters believe the US is headed for civil war.
Fifty-three percent of right-wing voters said so, compared to 39 percent of Democrats.
He also predicted that the House selection committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riot would “cease to exist” and “the findings would be completely suppressed.”
House Republicans are poised to win enough seats to maintain at least a slim majority over Democrats in next year’s Congress, multiple forecasts have shown
Nearly seven in 10 Republican respondents said they believe to some degree that “liberal leaders” retained power by replacing “more conservative white voters” with minorities, a chillingly similar thought process to the grand replacement theory.
Despite Bowman’s dramatic prediction, not all members of the progressive team seem interested in presenting a united democratic front to get across the finish line.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, for example, declined to say whether she would support President Joe Biden if he runs for reelection in 2024 — which his aides and allies have said he plans to do.
“You know, if the president chooses to rejoin in 2024, I mean, first of all, I’m focused on winning this majority now, and keeping a majority this year in 2022,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
“So we’ll cross that bridge when we get there, but I think if the president has a vision, that’s something we’ll definitely all want to do and explore when the time is right.”
