New Right-Wing Rhetoric: Kavanaugh Protesters are “Hostile Enemies of the United States”



“…these are hostile enemies of the United States working to overthrow the government and they need to be treated as such.”

John Guandolo, the disgraced former FBI agent and right-wing conspiracy theorist who now trains law enforcement agencies around the country to identify seemingly anyone with dark skin and a beard as an Islamic terrorist, appeared on TheDove TV’s “Focus Today” program this morning, where he declared that activists who have been protesting the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court are “hostile enemies of the United States.”

Guandolo, who has repeatedly called for those who are supposedly working to undermine President Trump to be tried for treason and executed, said that the protests that occurred during Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing were a perfect display of the “cancer” that is working to “destroy the United States from within.”

“These are not simply—quote—political objections,” he said. “People that support these movement—to include the national Democrat [sic] Party—they don’t simply have a—quote—alternate political perspective; these are hostile enemies of the United States working to overthrow the government and they need to be treated as such.”

Guandolo declared that Republicans “are wrong” when they assert that Democrats simply hold different political views—and that GOP leaders are guilty of “aiding and abetting enemies of the state” when they say such things.

“The people protesting and disrupting the hearings are not simply American citizens who have a differing political opinion,” he said. “They are paid by hostile entities that seek to bring down and are conspiring to overthrow the government in violation of federal law and they need to be addressed as such. They’re enemies in a war that our Republican leadership is not addressing.”
