In a fiery segment on CNN, Jim Acosta absolutely eviscerated on the race-baiting "human manure spreader" Tucker Carlson and his far right, religious zealot friends in the the Republican party. The segment is split in three main themes:
- the absolute hatred of Afghan refugees (which reinforces the White Replacement Theory Tuckems loves to push,)
- the hatred and fear of any meaningful oversight by Democrats over the GOP Capitol riot on January 6th, and
- the Texas abortion law that effectively overturns Roe v. Wade.
Here is the first segment, during which Acosta shreds Carlson, MAGA media, and the GOP on refugees and the threats of the GOP regarding January 6th committee oversight.

People being brought in here, there is a significant percentage that are future Boston marathon bombers because they're not doing adequate vetting.

ACOSTA: Over on FOX, Human Manure Spreader, Tucker Carlson has floated yet another race baiting conspiracy theory that tens of thousands of Afghan refugees are being sent over to this country in order to change the outcome of elections.

HMS: Many will be allowed to move around the United States and stay permanently. They didn't seem to encounter any problems in doing this, thanks to meticulous and thoughtful planning. Operation Change America came off precisely according to plan. It worked flawlessly.
ACOSTA: Did he say Operation Change America Forever? I think change is already in the air. We had an insurrection eight months ago, an insurrection that, let's face it, hasn't really ended. In part because you have Republican members of Congress using this kind of rhetoric.

If our election systems continue to be rigged and continue to be stolen, then it's going to lead to one place and that's bloodshed. And I will tell you, as much as I am willing to depend our liberty at all costs, there's nothing that I dread doing more than having to pick up arms against a fellow American.
ACOSTA: The threatening language does not end there. In response to the January 6 Committee requesting the phone records of lawmakers, some of whom may have been in touch with the insurrectionists, House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy issued a statement warning the telecom companies that cooperating with the Committee, quote, a public majority will not forget. That sounded an awful lot like what Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene had to say.

MTG: These telecommunications companies, they better not play with these Democrats, because Republicans are coming back into the majority in 2022 and we will take this very serious. These telecommunications companies, if they go along with this, they will be shut down and that's a promise.
CARLSON: Good, I hope they're afraid of you. They should be. They're very short-sighted. They think Democrats will rule forever but they should be afraid to weigh in to policy partisans like this.
ACOSTA: Congressman Taylor Greene. If they go along with this, they will be shut down. Congressman Cawthorn. It's going to lead to one place and it's bloodshed. Operation Change America Forever, indeed.
Then Acosta moved onto the horrifying Texas abortion law that was signed into law in May 2021, banning all abortions after 6 weeks, which is before most women even first realize that they are even pregnant. This law ends most abortions in the state of Texas. Most LEGAL abortions, that is. Illegal abortions will still happen, and women will die. Acosta made an excellent comparison to the Handmaid's Tale.
If you're getting a Handmaid's Tale vibe from this, you're not alone. Apologies if you haven't seen the show, but when they say Under His Eye in Texas, do they now mean Greg Abbott? Who is going to be doing the snitching? Watch out for Aunt Lydia down the street. Certainly it won't be the same people saying "my body, my choice" when it comes to mask mandates.
Tying it all together in a neat little package, Acosta concludes the real danger to America is not refugees. It is not Democrats seeking answers about the insurrection. It is not women seeking access to women's healthcare. IT IS THE AMERICAN TALIBAN: also known as the Republican Party.
The anti-immigration, anti-democratic, anti-women's rights parties have all sought these kinds of changes for years, even decades, in this country. Their operation to change America forever is well underway. It's just changing in a way they don't want you to see.
The real danger to America is the Republican Party. Until Democrats realize the extent of that, we are at serious risk of losing our country, maybe forever. Next time the GOP is in control, they will roll out so many laws, both federal and state level, that it will be impossible for Democrats to ever win an election again. Minority rule will be the future of our country. The danger is WITHIN our borders.
