In a recent television panel, MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace appeared to suggest drone striking American citizens who incite violence.
“There is until the end of April, a persistent threat of domestic extremism, 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 pushed ideologies by Donald Trump,” Wallace said.
“We had a policy, and it was very controversial, it was carried out under the Bush years and under the Obama years, attacking terrorism at its root, of going after and killing, in the case of Anwar al-Awlaki, an American, with a drone strike, for the crime of inciting violence…
“How does Mitch McConnell… not vote to convict someone he said, on the floor of the Senate, incited an insurrection?” Wallace asked her panel.
One of the biggest concerns with Wallace’s remarks is that the Left sees opposing viewpoints as hateful and violent.
For example, The Daily Citizen was recently suspended from Twitter for correctly identifying Dr. Rachel Levine as a biological male. Our crime, according to Twitter, was for violating their rules against “hateful conduct,” and for “promoting violence against, threatening or harassing” Dr. Levine.
On Twitter, just like on the left, expressing truth and conservative values is now seen as “promoting violence.”
Russ Vought, who served as the Director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for former President Donald Trump, appeared on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” to discuss how we can fix our culture, which facilitates remarks like those made by Wallace.
“I think what’s important is that we need to remember to stay on offense on these particular issues on which they are pushing at the front. These are cultural issues; these are the America first issues,” Vought said.
“If we lose our voice, and right now we are in danger of losing our voice and your last segment just got at it with regard to how they’re calling us all terrorists and insurrections, if we lose our voice, we’ve got no [conservative] movement.”
