In a feisty segment on Sunday’s “A.M. Joy,” Elie Mystal of Above the Law made an inflammatory comment in which he said white people who voted for Donald Trump should be destroyed. This came after a segment in which he argued there is no moral difference between avowed white supremacists and any white person who votes for Trump.
In the clip, host Joy Reid asked how those who are “drugged” by the president’s rhetoric should be communicated to and convinced they are wrong. That’s when Mystal got even more heated, saying:
“You don’t communicate to them, you beat them. You beat them. They are not a majority of this country — the majority of white people in this country are not a majority of the country. All the people who are not fooled by this need to come together, go to the polls, go to the protests, do whatever you have to do. You do not negotiate with these people, you destroy them.”
Ironically, this comment came on the same day the New York Times ran a piece arguing that Fox News is inciting white supremacist violence by using words such as “invasion” to describe the situation at the border. A double standard is at work here, and it has become increasingly blatant throughout Trump’s presidency. When his supporters use fiery language and hyperbole, it is incitement to violence, but when progressives do the same thing, it is justified outrage.

Cool. So then the women, blacks Hispanics and Asians that vote for Trump are totally disenfranchised. How totally racist.
It’s not so much a double standard as NO standard at all. Liberals are merely free to say whatever strikes them as useful at the moment and they don’t have to worry about any continuity with standards, principles or character. If it helps the liberal cause to denounce anyone that suggests the leftist organization of hoards of illegal immigrants in groups of 15,000 at a whack in order to overwhelm our defenses is an “invasion” as violent, hateful speech, then turn right around and promote beating and destroying human beings that have a love of their country, well, it’s just politics.
What is the network’s business of promoting a particular political view is anyone’s guess, however.
