Just Wait Until You See What This MSNBC Puppet Says Republicans Wants
I'm calling MSNBC's Mehdi Hasan a puppet because that's what he and his colleagues are, fear puppets. In the same breath that they call for unity and peace, they start blasting their viewers with fear. Their talking points are all the same:
Be afraid of your neighbor.
Be afraid of your own rights.
Everyone is a racist.
We're all victims.
Elon Musk has been the media's target recently and for what? He's not a conservative but he's not a liberal either. Musk has shown equal parts contempt and complacency to both parties. His most conservative value is his belief in American rights. As a South African native, I don't think it's had for Musk to imagine a world without the American constitution.
That's the thing, though. Isn't it? That's why liberals suddenly hate him. He's pro-freedom. He's certainly not the savior of the right, despite how they're spinning it. Don't get me wrong, I'm pleased to have my Twitter account unlocked and I'm thankful someone wants to fix the broken social media machine but Musk hates both sides, to an extent, equally.
Hasan tells his viewers that "we are living through an unspeakably dangerous moment the pro-QAnon, pro-neo-Nazi faction of the Republican Party is poised to expand dramatically, come [to] the midterms."
Because he says, "America's far-right wants to give us white supremacy and no democracy." While the far-left only wants to give you free child care and health care.
What a load of crap.
So tell me again how it feels like the Democrats have gone rogue, did they happen to launch a coup, that I missed? Did they suddenly start accusing their opponents of eating babies? I mean, it's easy in American discourse to talk simplistically about the far-left and the far-right as two equally dangerous fringe blocks. Elon Musk has done it plenty of times just in the past week. But here's the difference. America's far-left wants to give us free health care and free childcare. America's far-right wants to give us white supremacy and no democracy. And this asymmetrical polarization of U.S. Politics would be laughable if it weren’t so horrifying.
We are living through an unspeakably dangerous moment the pro-QAnon, pro-neo-Nazi faction of the Republican Party is poised to expand dramatically, come the midterms. With just two years away from Donald Trump, very possibly re-seizing executive power. If that happens, we may look back on this past week, as a pivotal moment. When a petulant and not so bright billionaire casually bought one of the most influential messaging machines, and just handed it to the far-right.
