Monday night on CNN, former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura called for political parties in the United States to be abolished.

“We need to abolish the political parties,” he told Piers Morgan. “Make them political action committees.”

Ventura compared the Democrats and Republicans to the Bloods and Crips, two notorious Los Angeles street gangs and fierce rivals.

“They call the blue states Democrats, well that is also the colors of the Crips,” he explained. “Naturally, the Bloods’ color is red and the Republican states are called red states.”

“They’re worse,” Venture continued. “Let me explain why they’re worse: The Crips and the Bloods, the street gangs, while they can be devastating to a certain small part of the population, the Democrips and the Rep-bloodicans, they affect everybody in this country.”
