Rep. Cohen: Tea Partiers are “domestic enemies”

Looking ahead to the prospect of new fights with Republicans in Congress as a result of the conclusion of the government shutdown, Memphis congressman Steve Cohen referred to Tea Partiers as “domestic enemies” in an MSNBC interview Sat., Oct. 19:

“I obviously do not have an opportunity to go within the conference, the Republican — we call it a caucus, they call it a conference. But I know some of the members there, and a lot of those members — they’re rabid, they’re sophomoric, literally, their second term in Congress, never worked in politics before, and they think they are somehow like — it’s all talked in military terms. They think they’re some kind of guerrillas there to strike a blow for freedom.”

Cohen continued that congressmen take an oath to protect the country against enemies foreign and domestic and that “these are the domestic enemies.”
