“If you vote for Trump, you’re the bad guy.”
CNN’s Wolf Blitzer recently took offense when Trump called the media an enemy of the American people. “We love the American people” Blitzer said in response. But if that’s true, they sure have a funny way of showing it.
The folks at Grabien have compiled a series of recent liberal media moments where the narrative has turned to anyone who voted for Trump:
Montage: Media Turning Trump Voters Into Public Enemy No. 1
The media may love some Americans, but certainly not Trump voters. How else to explain the increasing frequency with which Republicans, and Trump voters specifically, are described on air as racist, Nazis, and undeserving of common courtesy (such as eating a dinner without being harassed)?
During the most recent controversy over family separation at the border, CNN and MSNBC have become a platform such hyperbolic attacks. And while these criticisms often come from guests on these programs, an anchor has yet to step in to try and temper the rhetoric.
MSNBC’s Donny Deutsch said Trump supporters are the “bad guy” in America and are akin to Nazis.
“If we are working towards November, we can no longer say Trump’s the bad guy,” Deutsch said during a recent appearance on Morning Joe. “If you vote for Trump, you’re the bad guy. If you vote for Trump, you are ripping children from parents’ arms.”
He continued: “If you vote for Trump, then you, the voter, you, not Donald Trump, are standing at the border, like Nazis going, ‘You here, you here.’ I think we now have to flip it and it’s a given, the evilness of Donald Trump. But if you vote, you can no longer separate yourself. You can’t say, ‘Well, he’s okay, but …’ And I think that gymnastics and that jiu-jitsu has to happen.”…
“All” Trump supporters are racist, CNN contributor Michaela Angela Davis, recently said: “Tens of millions of people voted for him after he showed his cards for years.” When the anchor, John Berman, asked her to clarify if she’s calling all Trump voters racist, she replied, “Yes, yes.” Labeling almost half the country bigoted did not earn her a rebuke from the hosts or other panelist.
Watch the video below:
Dilbert creator Scott Adams talked about this in one of his recent videos. Adams isn’t a Republican but has become associated with Trump, due to his belief that Trump is a master of persuasion.
In this video, he says that he is considering voting straight-ticket for Republicans this fall as an act of self-preservation. He urges all people on the right to do the same with the ominous warning: “They’re coming for you next.”
Here’s more from the Washington Times:
“If president Trump gets impeached while his performance is similar to what it is now … that’s a dangerous situation,” the author added. “I’m actually considering voting for the first time, and I wouldn’t even be voting for candidates. I would just be voting for a side. I would just say ‘Republican’ — and I’m not a Republican. It’s not even about policy [or] anything. It would be about pure self-defense because I would want the safest situation for the country. Here’s the ‘Get Out The Vote’ slogan that I think is the strongest for Republicans: ‘They’re coming for you next.’ You know it’s true. They are coming for you next. If you want to be safe, then you want to keep the system in tact as long as possible.”
