On Sunday, a guest on MSNBC stated that anyone that supports President Trump and his agenda must be beaten and destroyed. Elie Mystal, executive editor at abovethelaw.com, stated that anyone who supports this agenda and President cannot have typical conversation and the only solution is to destroy them. Here’s the video:
In the video, host Joy Reid attempted to quickly clarify that he meant to beat conservatives and Trump supporters at the ballot box, but if you watch the video you’ll notice that Mystal further clarified her statements by saying “figuratively.” However, it really wasn’t the say that Mystal said it as he said “you destroy them.” To follow his lead and further clarify, he said it “literally.”
This comes from Democrats who are quick to accuse President Trump of inciting violence and being the cause of mass shootings. It also comes along the heels of other left commentators suggesting that anyone supporting Trump or his agenda is at fault as well. If this commentator had been conservative, he would have immediately been reprimanded and asked to resign his position.
This is not the first time this commentator has made suggestive comments of violence. He made comments earlier for pitchforks and torches outside of a man’s home who was to host a Trump event. See those comments here:
Of course, MSNBC will continue to have this contributor on because there is no issue with these types of comments from the left. Liberal media, including MSNBC, truly believes that you must destroy conservatives and Trump supporters in any way, whether by election or violence. They aren’t alone.
A video surfaced late Monday which caught CNN host Chris Cuomo threatening a Trump supporter. Cuomo apparently did not take kindly to a statement and went into a profanity laced tirade and threatened to throw the man down a set of stairs. CNN quickly defended Cuomo and has no intentions to take action after his outburst.
President Trump has never made statements like this in public, but his statements incite violence and rage towards conservatives. Yet, we are to believe that this MSNBC reporter and Chris Cuomo are not truly inciting violence against conservatives? I’ll quickly call out the absurdity of this statement.
CNN should at the very least suspend if not terminate Chris Cuomo for his actions just like MSNBC should refuse to have Elie Mystal on shows anymore. Both were threatening violence against conservatives and these inflammatory statements could lead to more violence against conservatives and Trump supporters. This is the logic that they use when nothing is said inciting violence, so it makes sense to ask for the same in return right?
