MSNBC analyst Nicolle Wallace likens concerns with the US election process and invasive coronavirus lockdowns with "domestic terrorism" before referencing how the Bush and Obama administrations would fight terrorists by "going after and killing" them.
In a segment recorded last month, MSNBC analyst Nicolle Wallace brought drone strikes and death into a discussion about what to do about "domestic terrorism carried out in the ideology and around this belief that the election was fraudulent, that the Covid restrictions are unnecessary.
"All of those ideologies pushed by Donald Trump," Wallace added.
Wallace's remarks are unprecedented because 65% of Republicans say Joe Biden's election was illegitimate, according to the Associated Press.
Vilifying the millions of Americans who oppose draconian lockdown measures in response to the COVID-19 virus is also unscientific as researchers utilizing mathematical models to compare countries that did and did not enact more restrictive lockdown orders determined that there was "no clear, significant beneficial effect of [more restrictive measures] on case growth in any country."
On his show, Tucker Carlson pointed out how Wallace seemingly suggested blowing up Trump supporters. Carlson wondered aloud “how crazy are things getting” before answering his own question.
“A prominent news anchor is now suggesting drone strikes against American citizens who have the wrong politics,” said the Fox News anchor, recalling that “there was a time” when “most sane people in this country” would have thought it was a “little over the top” to believe in “bombing American citizens with military drone strikes in this country just because you don’t like their politics.”
“Maybe not the unity we were looking for,” he quipped. “But things have changed. Supporters of Donald Trump, it turns out, were so dangerous that maybe they do deserve Hellfire missiles raining down on their homes.”
After playing the clip, Carlson concluded, “We play a lot of over-the-top video of that news channel and that news anchor. Save that tape. That will live on forever as one of the craziest things said on cable television. It’s the sign of the moment we’re in.”
