In a Feb. 1 tweet, Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) raised the question of whether Republicans should be referred to as the "terrorist right," a point that many of her followers on Twitter applauded.
“The Republicans have been calling Democrats the radical left," Speier tweeted. "Time to call Republicans the terrorist right?"
Her tweet drew a lot of attention from people echoing their support of her statement.
“Radical right Terrorists,” replied actress Patricia Arquette backing Speier’s statement.
“They’re WhiteISIS - they use religion and nationalistic fervour to recruit new fanatics via social media, then unleash them in violent insurrectionary attacks against their fellow citizens and their government,” said a Twitter user with the handle @Cannadablissed.
