The so-called mainstream media have completely gone off the rails.
Their hatred of anybody right-of-center has truly crossed the line.
Now one MSNBC host unleashed one shocking attack against Donald Trump.
The 2020 election is rapidly approaching, which means the Democrats and their comrades in the media are escalating their attacks on Trump, Republicans, conservatives, and pretty much anyone else that disagrees with Democrat orthodoxy.
Not only did Trump’s election in 2016 give Democrats and Never-Trumpers a permanent case of Trump Derangement Syndrome, it forced them to expose themselves for what they truly are.
The media have been so over-the-top in their hateful coverage of Trump, their masks have finally slipped off and they’ve revealed themselves to be the true authoritarians.
The latest example comes from MSNBC co-host Mika Brzezinski.
She went on an insane rant calling for Trump to be banned from Twitter.
Brzezinski first attacked Trump on her show after he criticized her husband and co-host Joe Scarborough, a Never-Trump Republican who left the party three years ago.
Brzezinski said, “[Y]ou’re mad at Joe, because Joe got you again today, because he speaks the truth….he speaks plainly about your lack of interest and empathy in others and your lack of ability to handle this massive human catastrophe, the fact that you have made it worse and you make it worse every day.”
She’s of course referencing Trump’s handling of the coronavirus, but her analysis is way off.
In terms of coronavirus death rate, the United States is doing about as well as the countries of Western Europe – and if you take out the hot spot of New York City, the U.S. is doing even better.
New York’s response was mainly bungled by the incompetence of governor Andrew Cuomo and New York City mayor Bill de Blasio.
Brzezinski then said she would be contacting Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey about censoring Trump’s tweets.
She eventually went on Twitter and pleaded directly to Dorsey in a tweet:
“[email protected] At what point is @Twitter a part of this? TAKE DOWN TRUMP’s ACCOUNT— the world world be safer. Retweet if you agree.”
This is a member of the press actively calling for censorship.
The left has no concept of what authoritarianism is.
They believe anyone who opposes them is a fascist.
But it’s the left that wants to confiscate guns, censor opponents, and force individual states to bend to the word of the federal government.
Brzezinski’s tone-deaf tweet not only exposes her as the authoritarian, but shows her hubris in believing the American people shouldn’t be allowed to know what the President of the United States has to say.
Senator Ted Cruz roasted Brzezinski for her comments, tweeting:
“The media should NOT be asking Silicon Valley billionaires to silence the President of the United States. If you disagree w/ what he says—as I also do at times—then engage on the merits. Say why you think he’s wrong. Journalists should NOT be calling for censorship. #FreeSpeech.”
And it’s not just Trump they want banished.
This is who the left is. Their only principle is power.
