‘I don’t wanna be dark, but…’ MSNBC guest accuses GOP of establishing ‘insurrection committee’

MSNBC’s “Deadline: White House” host Nicolle Wallace sat down with guest David Jolly on Tuesday and proceeded to label the House Republicans who are creating an investigative committee to look into federal agencies as an “insurrection committee.”

Wallace began the show by accusing House Republicans of inciting violence.

“They are creating a climate where political violence is not just tolerated, but preferable to running in elections in a democracy and prevailing. This is the strategy and I guess my concern David Jolly is that it is beyond norm-busting. It is reprehensible and I wonder if you believe that our institutions are ready for this,” Wallace outrageously asked.

“I’m not sure we are as a country ready for the cultural divide this might create. This is their insurrection committee. Again, the committee, the platform they will use to foment insurrection using the levers of the Congress. The through-line to violence, a good friend of the show of yours and mine, Fred Guttenberg, said today, please continue to talk about the through-line to violence. Because every time this happens we see a violent reaction like you just articulated in that list of moments we’ve lived through that we’ve seen and it brings in another constituency. Again, I don’t want to be dark, but if we don’t talk about this, then we’re not forewarned,” Jolly blustered.

An attorney and former Republican, Jolly has skewed ever more leftward since being a regular guest on networks such as MSNBC.

He proceeded to attack those who support Second Amendment rights, painting them as violent insurrectionists and asserting that the Republicans in the House are fueling it. He’s joined by other Democrats saying similar things.

“At the root of the ardent Second Amendment, most zealous advocates in today’s Republican Party is that I need my weapons for when the government comes for me. That is the reason for the Second Amendment and armed citizenry to protect themselves against the government. Well, what is this weaponization panel going to do? It’s going to be like mainlining heroin into that constituency,” Jolly charged.

“Saying your domestic law enforcement agencies are coming after you. They’re stealing your election, they’re stealing your franchise, surveilling you and they are going to rip at your liberties if you don’t protect us from it and Jim Jordan is going to suggest that he’s going to lead the nation out of this dark chapter when what he’s actually going to do is lead us right into it. This is a dangerous, dangerous concession that goes all the way back to Kevin McCarthy’s corrupt bargain and it will be on him to try to keep it in check but I think he’s shown us he will have zero ability to do that,” he commented.

In response to a tweet from Congressman Dan Bishop (R-NC) last week which was optimistic at the time that a new “Church-style committee” would curb “the weaponization of the federal government,” Jolly carped that it would “attack and shred” the government.

“With all the focus on the House rules being given away to the Freedom Caucus et al, this development below may be the most consequential – a new House Committee to attack and shred the federal government, undermining confidence for millions of Americans in our self governance,” Jolly tweeted.

He went on to assert in what appears to be his new, favorite talking point, that the committee will be an “insurrection platform.”
