Atlantic Writer Suggests America Could Be ‘Crippled’ If Republicans Take Back Congress

NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

Tom Nichols, a writer for The Atlantic, said Saturday that if the Republicans win in November, the country will “grind to a standstill.”

MSNBC anchor Alicia Menendez asked Nichols how America might change if Republicans regain control of Congress.

“In the mirror, it won’t take that long for government institutions to just stop working after a while because you can’t get nominees through that kind of process,” he said. “You can’t run institutions and cabinet departments with that kind of process, and I think David Cicilline is absolutely right, they will just launch investigations and all sorts of other drama-laden things that will appeal to their base, but that will essentially cripple the country. sooner or later”.

Democrats and Republicans have clashed over critical issues such as the legitimacy of various institutions, leading many to suggest that American democracy itself is in danger.

Nichols, who was an adviser to the anti-GOP group Project Lincoln, claimed that the Republican Party has “collapsed” into a cult of personality.

“The Republican Party has completely collapsed as an instrument of government or even as a true political party,” he said. “It’s just a cult of personality where the nominal party leaders are cowards or true believers, and I think most of them are just cowards.”

Nichols seemed to imply that many Republican leaders are cynically telling their voters what they want to hear in return for their support.

“They’re not going to stand up to their own primary voters, they want to cover their asses and keep their jobs. They don’t want to have to leave the emerald city and go home,” he said. “They will say or do anything to stay where they are, and that means the implication for the country is that they will happily wreak havoc, run their own fringe instead of running the country.”

He went on to suggest that the GOP does not have so much a core agenda as radical initiatives to galvanize its base.

“Republicans talk about politics, they don’t really have politics other than this kind of will to power, which they will continue to exercise by feeding red meat to their own base, whether it’s abortion, immigration or anything else.” he said.
