Outrageous ESPN's Tony Kornheiser Compares Tea Party to ISIS
During his radio show last week, ESPN personality Tony Kornheiser drew a comparison between the Tea Party and the Islamic State.
While interviewing Huffington Post editor Howard Fineman, Kornheiser asked about the House Speaker race and if leading candidate Paul Ryan will be able to gain the support of the Tea Party.
FINEMAN: Paul Ryan has enough conservative chops, that he can sort of try to unify the whole party. But, he’s going to be spending all his time trying to deal with these Tea Party people.
What he’s probably going to have to do, if in fact he gets in, is stage some kind of fight with them and defeat them, or take away their power, and go after them. I don’t know if he’s got the guts to do that. I don’t know if he’s got the numbers to do it.
KORNHEISER: Are they like ISIS trying to establish a caliphate here?
FINEMAN: Yes, yes! That’s a very good analogy. Without the violence obviously, but yes, they are a rejectionist front. They don’t want to legislate.
