If you work for MSNBC or the New York Times, that’s bad enough.
But if you work for both at the same time, then the results are likely to be even worse.
And that’s definitely the case with Mara Gay.
Here’s some of the unhinged comments she made.
On Tuesday, MSNBC analyst and New York Times editorial board member Mara Gay told the leftist audience, “I was really disturbed,” after she saw several American flags on Long Island over the weekend.
These people hate their country. They don’t even hide it.
She was so deeply disturbed because “just dozens of American flags” were seen flying and she then claimed, “Essentially the message was clear.”
Gay added, “I think that as long as they see Americanness as the same as one with Whiteness, this is going to continue.” What?The Gateway Pundit
What’s our flag got to do with whether you’re white or not?
Why does she think of ‘whiteness’ when she sees it?
And how can the flag of our nation make a liberal upset?
All of these are questions that someone should ask Gay.
You can watch her full remarks here.
And here’s a text version.
Mara Gay: 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. I think as long as they see Americanness as the same as one with whiteness, this is going to continue. We have to figure out how to get every American a place at the table in this democracy, but how to separate Americanness, America, from whiteness. Until we can confront that and talk about that, this is really going to continue.
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 expletives against Joe Biden on the back of them, Trump flags, and in some cases, just dozens of American flags, which is also just disturbing, which essentially the message was clear, this is my country. This is not your country. I own this.
And so until we’re ready to have that conversation, this is going to continue. What really is concerning to me as well is, it’s not just Democrats in Congress. I think there’s a large percentage of Americans, even some of my colleagues in journalism, who are invested in some way in pretending that this isn’t the threat that it is. 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.The Gateway Pundit
The problem is that leftists believe exactly the same things she’s said in all of these comments, and won’t challenge her on any of it.
That’s the real problem.
There’s millions of people that are offended by the sight of our nation’s flag, and that shows that something has gone deeply wrong in our culture and education system.
What went wrong was the Left being allowed to take over the media and the schools.
The only real solution, now that this has gone so far, is secession.
The Left and Trump supporters cannot be reconciled, most of the time.
Our patriotic worldview, and their globalist worldview, are two completely opposed forces.
They should concentrate in blue states like California, and we should concentrate in red states like Florida.
And then the blue states can form a union of their own, and red states can do the same.
Otherwise there will just be endless conflict.
