In a surefire sign that their ratings have been suffering, left-leaning infotainment company MSNBC took another step toward abject horror this week by declaring that a new American Civil War is upon us.
The statement came from an episode of “The ReidOut”, in which MSNBC personality and host Tiffany Cross came the absurd conclusion almost flippantly.
“You have millions of people tuning into a propaganda network every night,” Cross outlined. “And then, as if that were not bad enough, that’s an extremist network itself, you have these fringe pop-up outlets from OAN to Newsmax, then you have the social media component. That train has left the station. There is no let’s deal with the rhetoric. At this point, I do think we have to have serious conversations around preparing for actual violence.”
And then, unbelievably:
She added, “People keep saying a civil war is coming — I would say a civil war is here. And I don’t mean to be hyperbolic. We can look at what has happened just in the past week alone since all this has happened. We’ve had two people try to declare war with FBI field offices. I don’t think, at this point, we’re going to pack up our bags and go home and sing kumbaya. So, from a law enforcement angle, what would you recommend the infrastructure of the country do? Because not everybody has the security of Capitol Hill.”
Not only has MSNBC jumped the shark so obscenely that it should offend every more reputable news source out there, but it also revealed the network’s desperation for ratings and revenue.
