An MSNBC contributor and academic suggested Monday that the left-wing’s condemnation of the right isn’t polarizing like Republican rhetoric because it’s “right.”
Deadline: White House host Nicolle Wallace opened the segment by discussing a recent New York Times Report comparing Democrat and Republican rhetoric. Wallace said the study showed that Republicans who objected to the 2020 presidential election were far more likely to use “devilish terms” to belittle their political opposition.
MSNBC contributor and Morgan State University professor Jason Johnson suggested the study didn’t go far enough, claiming there is no equivalence between Republican and Democratic rhetoric in America because everything said about Republicans is true be.
“It’s actually even worse than what’s being reported because you have to understand that when it comes to terms that are considered polarizing, terms like ‘Fascism’ and ‘Nazi’ are considered polarizing terms, but unfortunately those are the correct descriptions of what happened to the Republicans,” he claimed.

He said the results of the entire study needed to be evaluated in a new light.
“So in many ways it would be worse if you took out some of that data,” he claimed. “You would see five times as many Republicans using these devil terms, using terms that are downright dangerous and polarizing society. And unfortunately, often because I think too long, their rhetoric has been equated with democrats and people who are democrats in favor of democracy.”
He added that Democrats’ labeling of the Republican opposition as “fascist” is not really polarizing because it is accurate.

“Republicans will say, ‘You’re part of a terribly evil pro-kid-eating cult and you’re pedophiles and you’re carers’ — and Democrats and democracy defenders would say, ‘Yeah, that’s the kind of language you use in fascism,’ and then the report would be, ‘Democrats call Republicans fascists and Republicans say Democrats are nurses,'” he suggested. “These are not synonymous. One is the truth and the other is a lie , and we have to talk about that every day, otherwise it looks like this kind of behavior and language is normalized.”
Labeling their opposition “fascist” has become a common duck used by the American left.
MSNBC has spoken about fascism or used the term “fascist” 1,614 times this year alone. In comparison, CNN used the terms “fascist” or “fascism” approximately 491 times during the same period.

Part of the increased use of the term may be due to Democratic Party leader President Joe Biden labeling millions of Trump supporters “semi-fascist,” a term that has since been defended and built upon by liberal commentators in the media became.
