The previous Republican congressman, ex-reality tv star Sean Duffy, made his daring lie throughout an look on the Fox propaganda outlet Tuesday, telling visitor host Brian Kilmead (that one’s one other piece of labor, however we’ll get to that later) that, certain, the insurrectionist former president would possibly’ve gone after loads of folks, however by no means complete teams. Each Duffy and Kilmead have been pretending to be outraged over President Joe Biden’s correct description of the MAGA varieties as “semi-fascists.”
“You have a look at Donald Trump’s presidency—and Donald Trump used harsh language—when he went after folks, he went after George Bush, he went after Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden, he went after John McCain,” Duffy claimed to Kilmead. Up to now, that’s truly all true. However then got here the actual doozy. “He went after folks individually [emphasis by Duffy] however he by no means went after an entire group of individuals!”
Get that people? One of many primary explanation why his marketing campaign attracted so many racists by no means actually occurred. However as The Each day Beast notes, the “Mexicans are rapists” lie was removed from the one time the insurrectionist former president attacked complete swaths of individuals and communities.
There was his official name in 2015 for “a complete and full shutdown of Muslims getting into america,” adopted by quite a few variations of a Muslim ban as president. “Past that, then-President Trump additionally referred to as Latin American and African nations ‘shithole international locations,’ relentlessly labeled the mainstream media ‘the enemy of the folks,’ attacked Black Lives Issues protesters as ‘thugs’ and ‘anarchists,’ and described cities run by Democratic mayors as ‘crime infested’ and a ‘actual mess,’” The Each day Beast continued.
The insurrectionist former president in truth sought to starve complete cities of federal funds except they cooperated with mass deportation brokers, in early 2020 even floating an concept to withhold pandemic funds except they helped federal brokers deport folks. Round that point, about 60,000 People had died from COVID-19.
Concerning the “shithole international locations” comment, recall the insurrectionist former president additionally made it clear he was completely content material with an entire different group of individuals, questioning why we couldn’t welcome extra folks from Norway as a substitute. Republican Sen. Tom Cotton was current for the racist “shithole international locations” comment however later pretended he couldn’t keep in mind something. He was, nonetheless, later in a position to keep in mind tweets from a Biden nominee that he simply occurred to oppose. Humorous how the mind is usually. Sen. Lindsey Graham was at that assembly too, and appeared to verify that one thing horrible had been stated by the insurrectionist former president. Not that he deserves even the slightest bit of reward for something. He’s all in on the fascism too.
However again to the section at hand. It’s humorous that Kilmead can be pretending to clutch his pearls over Biden’s remark, contemplating he’s additionally made loads of remarks that might have simply come out of the mouth of the insurrectionist former president. Kilmead has focused undocumented kids and their entry to a public faculty training in quite a few segments, claiming they “do not belong there.” In 2018 he additionally defended the insurrectionist administration’s household separation coverage, claiming “it’s not like he’s doing this to the folks of Idaho or Texas. These are folks from one other nation.”
