Jeanine Pirro, who had previously spent the entire eight years of the Obama administration stoking violence and hatred of America’s first black president, complained that Joe Biden was stoking violence and hatred of MAGA Republicans for referring to them as Semi-fascist.
Pirro: “They are so afraid of dealing with their loses and the problems that we are facing in this country that we got to have a new bogeyman, and we are going to make it the MAGA people, they are semi-fascists.”
“And anyone who is a student of history understands that this does not end well, that when you start segregating people and accusing them of being something that is so negative, so hateful, that it then spins into Democrat strategists saying these semi-fascists mirror Nazi Germany and Mussolini, I mean, we can all see where this is going to go.
“Hate is hate. Hate leads to violence, and that leads to retaliation. He’s failed to unify the country and now he’s dividing it even more.”
Over the last ten years that I’ve been paying attention to politics, Fox News has been segregating certain groups, demonizing them, vilifying them as scapegoats of all of America’s ills. It was non-white immigrants and gay people. These days that vilification includes trans people. Fox News and other right-wing media have portrayed trans people as “groomers” and “pedophiles.”
An online account known as the Libs Of Tik Tok – an anti-trans account – has been prominent in falsely targeting gay and trans people as child molesters, accusations that Fox News has eagerly exploited through pundits such as Tucker Carlson, accusations that have in some cases, resulted in harassment, and even violence. Certain children’s hospitals have recently come under attack due to lies and disinformation from right-wing media and social media harassment. But, according to idiots like Jeanine Pirro, it’s MAGA lovers who Biden has accurately identified as extremists, who are discriminated and demonized in America for no other reason than being conservatives.
Jeanine Pirro and other Republicans complaining about MAGA Republicans identified as radical extremists, reveals a stunning lack of self-awareness.
