MSNBC: How Do We ‘Deprogram’ Thousands and thousands of Racist, Violent Trump Supporters?

Nikole Hannah-Jones, of the NYT’s 1619 Venture, appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe Tuesday, to affix the panel in attacking Senators Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz, in addition to the 74 million Individuals who voted for President Trump this previous election as evil racists akin to the KKK. Panelist Eugene Robinson from The Washington Put up even demanded “thousands and thousands” of Individuals wanted to be “deprogrammed.”

The disgusting section started with co-host Joe Scarborough posing to Hannah Jones that Trump supporters have been really well-educated and rich Individuals (similar to these two Senators), and never blue collar rubes, because the narrative goes. This led to an obnoxious condescending sermon from Hannah Jones:

It has been a soothing narrative for us to consider that solely disaffected folks, solely those that have some financial anxiousness, solely those that are too ignorant to know higher would help anyone like Trump. I feel we wanted to consider that in a way that clever folks, highly effective folks, that considering folks, would know higher.

She went on to say that there weren’t sufficient poor whites to get Trump elected and wealthy white Republicans had used the poor whites to stoke violence and get their agenda throughout. She in contrast Trump supporters to the Klan and Republicans in Congress to klan-condoning white residents councils within the South throughout Jim Crow:

I discussed within the tweet thread, the white residents councils. What these councils did, these have been essentially the most economically advantaged, strongest residents within the South. They usually type of pulled the strings behind the scenes. They labored up decrease class white Individuals. They’ve stoked that racial divide to be able to get their bigger agenda. They tried to handle the violence. I feel what we noticed on Wednesday is what additionally occurred within the South throughout Jim Crow. 

MSNBC political analyst and Washington Put up columnist Eugene Robinson cherished that gross comparability and stoked the hateful rhetoric some extra, asking how they may “deprogram” the “thousands and thousands” who supported the president:

It’s completely true the variations between the white residents councils and the Klan again, even within the days of Jim Crow. The klan was decrease revenue, the white residents councils have been the Josh Hawleys and Ted Cruzes of their day. Here is the scenario, although. We’ve got — there are thousands and thousands of Individuals, virtually all white, virtually all Republicans who one way or the other must be deprogrammed. They’re–it’s as if they’re members of a cult, the Trumpist cult they usually should be deprogrammed. Do you might have any concept how we begin that course of? [chuckling] A lot much less full it?

Following this, co-host Joe Scarborough laughably claimed that tax cuts, deregulation and Trump’s financial insurance policies really “screwed over” working class Individuals and solely helped the wealthy.

MSNBC’s race-baiting, Republican bashing propaganda was paid for by advertisers Allstate, TD Ameritrade, and Sleep Number, whom you possibly can contact on the Conservatives Struggle Again web page here

Morning Joe

1/12/2021
 

NIKOLE HANNAH JONES: Completely. It has been a soothing narrative for us to consider that solely disaffected folks, solely those that have some financial anxiousness, solely those that are too ignorant to know higher would help anyone like Trump. I feel we wanted to consider that in a way that clever folks, highly effective folks, that considering folks, would know higher. However Trump doesn’t get to be Trump by merely getting the help of poor and disaffected white folks. They do not have the ability to make a Trump. They do not have the ability to donate to the marketing campaign, actually to show a whole election. While you take a look at the polling numbers, Republicans constantly supporting Trump, there aren’t sufficient poor white folks on this nation for him to tug that prime within the Republican social gathering. However this has at all times been the case. 

I discussed within the tweet thread, the white residents councils. What these councils did, these have been essentially the most economically advantaged, strongest residents within the South. They usually type of pulled the strings behind the scenes. They labored up decrease class white Individuals. They’ve stoked that racial divide to be able to get their bigger agenda. They tried to handle the violence. I feel what we noticed on Wednesday is what additionally occurred within the South throughout Jim Crow. Typically the violence would go too far after which it will flip the tide. It could really make sufficient Individuals sit up and say, okay, that is sufficient. It is gone too far. 

However I feel we actually have to do some critical soul looking why we wanted to consider this fantasy that these have been simply white individuals who did not know higher when actually Trump is radicalizing but in addition we understood for these on the type of peak of energy, this was about deregulation, this was about tax cuts for the rich. That is about utilizing the veneer of disaffected white Individuals to push a bigger agenda that was going to be to the advantage of them. And the explanation that that has labored is that the racial divide has at all times been for the reason that American revolution, when the British exploited the racial divide in opposition to the colonists, the sharpest device within the arsenal. We’ve got virtually a primal response to the stoking of that racial divide and it by no means advantages low revenue white Individuals. It solely advantages the elite. And we noticed what occurred with that this previous week. 

MIKA BRZEZINSKI: Let’s go to Gene Robinson. Gene? 

EUGENE ROBINSON: Nicole, that story you simply instructed is a well-recognized one. It’s completely true the variations between the white residents councils and the Klan again, even within the days of Jim crow. The klan was decrease revenue, the white residents councils have been the Josh Hawleys and Ted Cruzes of their day. Here is the scenario, although. We’ve got — there are thousands and thousands of Individuals, virtually all white, virtually all Republicans who one way or the other must be deprogrammed. They’re–it’s as if they’re members of a cult, the Trumpist cult they usually should be deprogrammed. Do you might have any concept how we begin that course of? [chuckling] A lot much less full it?

HANNAH JONES: [chuckling] Yeah, I don’t, I am a journalist. I actually do not understand how we will cease folks. I do know we will look to historical past, although. What finally breaks that energy construction within the South is enforcement, proper? There must be penalties. After which when you get these penalties, I feel folks should take a second take a look at their actions. They usually should be rather more afraid to do the sorts of violence that we noticed final week. The violence that we now have seen constructing with what occurred in Michigan, the violence being threatening now. What has lengthy been the case on this nation is we now have wished to rapidly transfer on to reconciliation in relation to this form of divide. We’ve got at all times been afraid in the event you really punish these white nationalist component in our society, it should solely make issues worse. In actual fact, what historical past exhibits, just isn’t reacting, not forcing accountability solely emboldens the folks and people actions. I feel there must be some actual accountability, there must be enforcement of the legal guidelines. After which after that I feel is when you can begin attempting to construct reconciliation. I feel what’s clearly the case just isn’t doing something is simply emboldening this to increase.
