‘Squad’ member Rep. Jamaal Bowman warned of ‘civil war’ if the GOP takes control of Congress after November’s midterm elections.
Bowman said Republicans taking back power would “embolden” far-right extremists and white nationalists who he claims “have been pushing” for “civil war.”
During a Saturday interview with MSNBC’s “The Cross Connection with Tiffany Cross,” Bowman claimed Republicans will quickly take action to halt Democratic progress in the investigation into the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, saying the House select committee’s findings would be “completely suppressed.”
In other words, the Democratic sham J6 hearings would come to an abrupt end.
Bowman also stated the GOP would impeach Biden as quickly as possible would continue to find ways to impeach him moving forward.

From the New York Post:
But Bowman went on to warn that Republicans gaining control of the House and/or Senate would “embolden” dangerous and violent extremists to take further control.
“It would also embolden Republicans and the far right, and white nationalists across the country to begin to believe that it is their time to not just take power in the House, but the Senate, the White House and statehouses across the country,” Bowman said.
“We’ve got to understand that this is a group that has been radicalized by the great replacement myth and many other things, and have been pushing for violence and pushing for even civil war, so that is what’s at stake right now in terms of this election,” he warned.
The “great replacement myth” refers to a theory often held by white nationalists that purports white Americans are being intentionally “replaced” by other minority races through mass immigration.
“Our democracy is hanging by a thread, and black and brown people, our lives are in the balance if these people come back into power,” Bowman added.
The progressive lawmaker’s warning of further division among the parties comes as 44% of Americans believe the US “seems headed toward a civil war in the near future,” according to an April survey.
