VIDEO: Liberals Becoming Afraid of American Flags
On Tuesday, MSNBC contributor Mara Gay said during an interview on the network that she was "disturbed" to see "dozens of American flags" on the vehicles of Trump supporters during a weekend trip to Long Island.
The progressive New York Times editorial board member told MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski "The reality is here that we have a large percentage of the American population - I don’t know how big it is, but we have tens of millions of Trump voters who continue to believe that their rights as citizens are under threat by simple virtue of having to share the democracy with others."
Turning it into a race issue, she continued, "I think that as long as they see Americanness as the same as one with Whiteness, this is going to continue," alluding to the two needing to be separated.
"I was on Long Island this weekend visiting a really dear friend, and I was really disturbed. I saw, you know, dozens and dozens of pickup trucks with explicatives [sic] against Joe Biden on the back of them, Trump flags, and in some cases just dozens of American flags, which is also just disturbing...Essentially the message was clear. This is my country. This is not your country. I own this," Gay said.
In reference to Gay then saying that "a large percentage of Americans" don't understand what a threat "whiteness" is, her race-baiting rant continued, "That is the real concern. Because, you know, the Trump voters who are not going to get onboard with democracy, they’re a minority. You can marginalize them, long-term. But if we don’t take the threat seriously, then I think we’re all in really bad shape."
All those expletives about Trump were fine though, Mara, right? And if you can't handle the sight of an American flag then why are you here?
