MSNBC Panelist On Most White People: Destroy Them

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.

Even the most generous interpretation of his comments — that “beat them” and “destroy them” mean at the polls — leaves some very troubling question. Are all of these tens of millions of people to be shunned and kicked out of polite society? If they are so horribly irredeemable that others cannot communicate or negotiate with them, what would Mystal have us do with them?

Furthermore, Mystal fails to mention that Trump got nearly 30% of the Hispanic vote in 2016. Perhaps he doesn’t think conservative Hispanics are real Hispanics, but that isn’t really his call to make. His misleading effort to make it seem as though only white people voted for Trump erases millions and millions of nonwhite voters.

Many Americans of all political stripes have rightly come to believe that our political rhetoric has become too heated. Along with others, I have argued that conservatives should fight harder against progressivism. But you fight the ideology, not the people. For some, the politics is now irrelevant, and it’s just about hating people you don’t like. This seems to be where Mystal has arrived.

Obviously, if a conservative had said that a majority of Hispanics should be destroyed to ensure a Trump victory in 2020, the din of the freak-out would make Chinese New Year sound like the reading room at the New York Public Library. And it would be justified.

Those who claim we have become so divided because of Trump or because of progressives have to understand that at a certain point, people are no longer “being divided,” but they’re “doing the dividing.” Outbursts like Mystal’s put that fact in sharp relief.

What the hell is wrong with these people??? They are why we need our 2A.

2. "Are all of these tens of millions of people to be shunned and kicked out of polite society? "

I think that many deplorables have kicked themselves from polite society. when emulating the "political incorrectness" of a senile billionaire, no one really wants to listen to them.

"polite society" treat each other with respect and attempt to cooperate for all to progress.

'Cause, I'm white and, I don't feel all that powerful. Certainly not powerful enough to have any effect whatsoever on the moron spouting that nonsense.

26. That is an actual racist spreading hate while on a national news channel

a national news channel that intentionally uses lies and conspiracy theories to attack those who disagree with them.

Your 'liberal hunting permit' is a bumper sticker that most people can't even see.

Yeah, same thing.

That's what was claimed when circulated.

The license to hunt liberals was in fact a thing for sale on the internet. A site called RightWingStuff. Here are a couple of their other sure to not offend (you) offerings :





And "cry me a river, your side is far from innocent" was exactly my point. I've been hearing Righty wanna beat me, silence me, even kill me since I was a child.

28. Your complaint was that they

think it is funny, then you turned around and flipped from funny to they were being serious. Nothing wrong with taking a position that they shouldn't view something like this as humor, they of course will disagree with you. BUT don't make the jump from "inapproprate" humor to they actually want to do implement what the humor depicts. You are taking hyperbole as serious and literal it should be taken as neither.

23. First, it's satire and both sides do it (the left probably more)

second, it has nothing to do with skin color. The racist in the OP said whites should be destroyed, not conservatives. Both are horrible to say, but one is horrible and racist.

11. Perhaps I should be required to wear a Deplorable patch because I voted for Trump. ...

It would be like the yellow badges the Germans forced the Jews to wear.



In a couple of years the liberals could round me up and send me to a concentration camp to await the gas chamber.

Of course first the liberals will try to take away my firearms so it will be difficult to resist the tyrannical government they hope to install.
