MSNBC has promoted extreme conspiracy theories about President Donald Trump and white supremacists this week in the aftermath of the racist terror attack that happened at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas Saturday.
The media and Democratic Party rushed to blame the president for the deadly attack, claiming that his rhetoric was responsible for the massacre that killed nearly two dozen people, despite potential evidence to the contrary.
MSNBC led the way in making wild and unsubstantiated claims about the president, claiming that he was talking about committing genocide and that he was secretly sending orders to Nazis.
MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace said on Monday (emphasis added): “What do you do when, certainly, the last Republican president fought for, sought and it’s not ideal but had 44 percent of Latino voters. So politically powerful inside the last Republican administration. President Obama used the power of the presidency to try to pass comprehensive immigration reform, with the Latino community, Latino leaders, at the table. You now have a president, as you said, talking about exterminating Latinos.”
MSNBC analyst Frank Figluizzi said on Tuesday: “It’s the little things and the language and messaging that matters. The president said that we will fly our flags at half-mast until Aug. 8. That’s 8/8. Now, I’m not going to imply that he did this deliberately, but I am using it as an example of the ignorance of the adversary that’s being demonstrated by the White House. The numbers 88 are very significant in neo-Nazi and white supremacy movement. Why? Because the letter ‘H’ is the eighth letter of the alphabet, and to them the numbers 88 together stand for ‘Heil Hitler.’ So we’re going to be raising the flag back up at dusk on 8/8.”
MSNBC analyst Malcolm Nance said on Tuesday (emphasis added): “These people feel that they are the foot soldiers and executors of what the disenfranchisement that the white race is feeling and Donald Trump is giving them subliminal orders in their head. They are no different than the mobilized, self-starting, self-radicalized terrorists of ISIS here in the United States and Europe, who take cars and drive down streets.”
MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski said on Tuesday (emphasis added): “You have to ask the question, Joe, and I’ll ask you, isn’t it okay to deduce that at this point this is what he wants? He is inciting hatred, inciting violence, inciting racism if he doesn’t unequivocally call it off and say, this is wrong and we stand together against this and we are doing this, this and this to help fight hate crimes. I mean this is a president who seems to want these things to happen.”
