MSNBC’s Chris Matthews and Guest Claim MAGA Movement is a ‘White Identity Cult’ That ‘Rejects American Values’
MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews and his guest Tim Wise asserted that supporters of President Donald Trump are part of a “white identity cult” and said that “[r]e-electing Donald Trump….reeks of immorality.”
Wise, an author and “anti-racism activist”, also claimed that Trump supporters reject “the values that Americans hold dear.”
“Democrats face a choice in 2020. Do they take on Donald Trump as if he’s just another Republican President whose policies they say are wrong or do they argue something more dire? That the man seeking a second term in the White House presents a moral danger to this country. Do they make 2020 a fight between good and evil? Well, in a series of tweets that went viral this weekend, author and anti-racism activist Tim Wise compared the challenge Democrats face now to what they faced when the former KKK leader David Duke was running for office in Louisiana in the early 1999s,” Matthews said while introducing his guest.
The far-left activist compared President Trump to white nationalist David Duke, saying that he won’t “say that Duke and Trump are the same, but they both appeal to white racial resentment as the yeast that makes their political bread rise and when you were dealing with a movement that focuses on that, in a sense a white identity cult.”
Newsbusters noted that Wise “continued by doing exactly what he said he wouldn’t do, which is suggest “Dukism” and “Trumpism” are similar because of the doom they spell for America and that both groups hate the country.”
“Trumpism pose an existential threat to the values that Americans hold dear. So in other words when they say the squad hates America, no, no, no, your movement hates America as an idea, an idea of multiculturalism, of pluralism, and of democracy. That’s the only way we’re going to motivate the base. It’s the only way we’re going to get reasonable moderates and conservatives who probably are never going to agree on policy with the candidates the Democrats have, but they can come together on the basis of a moral message and we can live to fight another day about the issues that we care about once the Democrat has defeated Donald Trump,” Wise said.
