"I'm not trying to say the Republican Party is the Taliban"

I am. Today's Republican Party and its tactics remind me quite a lot of the insurgents, aka Taliban. The quote in the title was from Texas representative Pete Sessions (R-TX), chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee. Chairman, is he? Of the GOP?

Wow! That former Grand Old Party is morphing itself into an insurgent group not unlike the Taliban, especially with their right-wing filled with Fundamentalists, just like the Taliban.

During the Civil War, southern insurgents were quite active in their business of causing havoc on the plans of the Union generals. They learned many of these tactics in Montreal, where they and southern-sympathizers planned raids and other covert activities against the Union forces.

As my previous post suggests, one wonders if The South, led by southern Republicans, are, in fact, insurgents looking to take down the Union once again.
