Blow up the Trump buildings?
We don’t know about you, but to us, that sounds like inciting violence.
Yet… this is the kind of rhetoric that the folks on MSNBC are regularly allowed to get away with.
Again, we ask you to imagine if a guest had said this on Fox News.
If that happened, Media Matters and the rest of the media apparatus would be calling for Fox News to be taken off the air.
But this kind of violent rhetoric appears to be the normal on leftist channels.
The worst part?
The guest who made the comment on MSNBC appeared to get no pushback from the host or the channel itself.
The segment doesn’t appear to be on YouTube or Twitter.
However, the Daily Caller posted it on their website:

The comments were presumably made because Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino in New Jersey was demolished.
Trump cut ties with the casino in 2009.
It declared bankruptcy and was forced to close.
Yesterday, it was demolished on live TV.
Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino imploded in Atlantic City, NJ.

It appears that while the mainstream media is ignoring this “insurrectionist” rhetoric, the Daily Caller is getting the word out there:
MSNBC guest and writer-at-large for The Bulwark Tim Miller said Wednesday that he wishes Americans could “blow up all the Trump buildings” and erase former President Donald Trump from their memory “Men In Black style.”
Miller appeared on “Deadline: White House” and listened as host Nicolle Wallace began the discussion with a video of Wednesday’s implosion of the former Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
“I don’t feel bad playing it … This is the implosion of the Trump property. There it goes. Is that a metaphor, Tim? Are we done? Is this Trump and all that he ushered in? Are we done? Is it imploding” Wallace asked jokingly as she played the video of the implosion.
Wallace noted that the Biden administration seemed weary talking about the former president. “This is not a White House that sort of speaks without thinking. And they’re done talking about Trump,” she observed.
“I think that the Biden White House is and should be. And I think that President Biden has done exactly what he promised, and I think it’s worked for him politically, as you pointed out, in the polls. The rest of us aren’t done with him, and I know that’s frustrating,” Miller responded.
“I’ve heard from folks when I’m firing off tweets about Trump telling me to shut up about it, I wish you’d just be quiet and not talk about him anymore, and I understand that point of view. Everybody wants to move on. I wish we could just blow up all the Trump buildings like that with nobody in them and just kind of erase him from our memory ‘Men In Black’ style, but we can’t,” he continued.
Miller referenced the movie “Men In Black,” in which there are small devices that have the ability to erase the memory of anyone who stares at one when it’s activated.
Miller then pointed out that Trump was on Fox News earlier Wednesday reacting to the death of Rush Limbaugh and “how mad he was” about the election being “stolen.”
What do you think?
Is this normal rhetoric?
Or did the guest on MSNBC go too far?

We should not be normalizing this kind of violent behavior!
