    Joe Scarborough: Trump Greater Threat to America Than 9-11 Terrorists

    Joe Scarborough: Trump Greater Threat to America Than 9-11 Terrorists

    “What he said about the majority black countries, that is tearing more at the fabric of America than attacks on the Twin Towers did.”

    If you had “Joe Scarborough” for “first cable news anchor to compare Trump to 9/11 jihadis” today, you win!

    While most Americans look at 9/11 with deep reflection and sorrow, others see it as an opportunity to score political points.

    Enter, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough.

    As MRC TV’s Newsbusters pointed out, Scarborough insinuates Trump has done more damage to America than the terrorist attacks that took the lives of thousands.

    Watch:

    Sayeth Scarborough:

    America is an idea. If you strip America of its ideas, forget about knocking down buildings in the financial district, forget about running planes into the Pentagon. Those are tragedies, but those tragedies bring us closer together. America is an idea. You gut America of that idea, that is when you do the most harm to America.

    …Across the world, you have people looking at a country that is saying they want to ban people from coming to America because of their religion. You have just this week Brett Kavanaugh who wants to be on the Supreme Court refusing to answer whether people should be banned from coming to the United States because of their race, in his reading of the constitution. The accumulation of that, the retweeting of neo-Nazi video, Charlottesville, I can go on and on, what he said about the majority black countries, that is tearing more at the fabric of America than attacks on the Twin Towers did. We built from that, we became stronger because of that but this seems to me a far greater, graver threat to the idea of America.

    Who also has the same comparison running in a WaPo op-ed today:

    Joe is right . . . if you mean by “the American Dream” the goals of non-Americans to shoehorn themselves into the US by means fair or foul.

    If you mean the aspirations of Americans (rather than non-Americans) then the President is right.

    Personally, I’m with the President on this one.

    It always bugs me when people say, “which begs the question…” Begging the question is a rhetorical fallacy in which one assumes a statement to be true and then uses that assumption to support an argument. Saying that “America is an idea” and then using that unchallenged assertion to support his argument is a perfect example of this fallacy.

      Hmmmmm……

      Is that kinda like the FBI leaking “fake facts” to the news media, who are then used as the fake source of fakery so the FBI can then use those fake facts to get an illegal FISA warrant and violate American citizens constitutional rights?

      You’re fighting an uphill battle against ignorance of philosophy and rhetoric. The government schools don’t teach that stuff any more.

    Get used to it. This election is going to be ALL race, ALL the time 24/7/365 at 1,000%. Colin, Serena, etc. etc. That’s the playbook.

    Donald Trump is Hitler who wants to oppress non-whites, and everyone who supports him is a Nazi; He wants to ban peaceful Muslims; Christians are evillll racist bigots; Zionist (meaning “those other Jews”, not you) bankers secretly rule the world.

    That is their platform. It’s their story and they are sticking to it.

    “Brett Kavanaugh ..refusing to answer whether people should be banned from coming to the United States because of their race, the retweeting of neo-Nazi video, Charlottesville, I can go on and on, what he said about the majority black countries, “

    Scarborough is like the proverbial pot calling the kettle ‘black.’

    Best. Election. EVER!
