Sessions: Republicans model themselves on the Taliban

Pete Sessions, a Republican from Tennessee, has said that the Congressional Republicans are using a an extreme Islamic terrorist group, the Taliban, as their model for how to behave. In an interview with Hotline, Sessions described the Republicans' strategy this way:
"Insurgency, we understand perhaps a little bit more because of the Taliban . . . . I'm saying an example of how you go about [sic] is to change a person from their messaging to their operations to their frontline message. And we need to understand that insurgency may be required when the other side, the House leadership, does not follow the same commands, which we entered the game with."
So there you have it. For eight long and horrible years, they accused Democrats of being terrorist sympathizers, but the minute they're out of power, they simply admit they are modeling themselves on a group of terrorists involved with the 9/11 attacks.
